Who wants to see some old 40-55 year olds jump around on a stage playing too loud music, wearing three musketeer tights with lace up pink and red converse sneakers......

Hey, did I just say that.....I must be my father.....HELP, somebody Help......

I loved VH in High School, they really rocked the first few albums, yes there were albums in the late 70s-80s.

Hagar wasn't horrible. You have to admit that Diamond Dave is a tad on the gay side these days.

Saw them back in '79. They were so loud I couldn't even tell what song they were playing. But the acoustics were lousy in the Civic Arena and most bands didn't sound good there (The Who and Bruce Springsteen being the exceptions).

Loved Van Halen's first couple albums. Got a few of their tunes on my MP3 player (Mean Streets is one of my favorite tunes). The Hagar years didn't do much for me though.

I think the real question is, how's Valeri Bertanelli looking these days?

DLR should have joined the CIRCUS!

Never really liked the guy - especially the "it's all about ME!" years.

Somethin' about SAMMY'S voice that makes DLR's stuff sound like BUBBLEGUM MUSIC!

I stopped listenin' to Van Halen when all their stuff started soundin' ALIKE! Although Van DO play a pretty good GITAR!

Here's a recent pic of Jim Marshall (founder of Marshall Amps) and me at a music convention - Jim is on the right!

Sometimes you GOTTA' bring in the "new guys"!

Their best album was 5150!

Diamond Dave was a more amusing personality
They were a better band with the Red Rocker

They must be running out of heroin money as they tried this around the time the greatest hits came out. It is how sammy ended up on the outside.

BTW, My brother went to the Sammy and Dave tour a few years ago in AC and he said Sammy's show blew away Dave's. I think the consensus on the web was the same with many dave fans saying the same thing

Looks like Wolfgang, eddies 13 year old son will be doing Michael Anthony's bass gig. Must reallyu sucks when you are reaplaced by a 13 year old.

As for who was better, Hagar v DLR..i dunno. I like both, but Hagar seemed to add a little maturity to the band they didn't have with DLR. And they sold a lot more albums with Hagar than DLR, so i guess, as always, it's just your own opinion that counts.

Van Halen just ain't Van Halen without Diamond Dave. The early stuff is my favorite.

I liked Van Hagar too, but it was a different vibe altogether.

I knew you and I would get along

Maybe you can come down to Hartwell one day and we can drag some lines for stripers and crank some REAL VH up on the boat, bet that would get them linesiders to feeding
