    Never was really a huge fan. They had a few good songs but in my opinion they were always too "showy", especially DL Roth. Can't stand him. I think he is awful and can't sing worth a crap. If you'll notice in most of his songs he talks more than sings. Sammy Hagar is a much better singer.

    The Sammy era sucked the big one... Tho Daves a douche, his time with the band was by far there best work...

    The first 4 albums where so innovative... Eddie tried to get too fancy later on..

    Anyone know why Anthony is out?

    Last time I saw Eddie on tv he didn't look too good... too many years of hard living looked like they where taking its toll...

    I agree, I never put as much money in the "jukebox" as when Panama first came out. Shootin' pool, long necks and VanHalen........leaving out on our Hogs..............good times!!!!
    I love Sammy Hagar since James Gang, one of my favorite all time bands, but never cared that much for Van Hagar. David Lee was the ultimate front man, IMO! :wink1:

    Anthony went along with Sammy to play with him, is what I read last week. They're best buds!!! :D

    I liked VH with both Dave and Sammy but I have never heard that crap when they had Gary Cherone. WTF that was all about is beyond me.....

    Yup, supposedly Eddie gave Michael Anthony some ridiculous requirements to come back and tour with the band after touring with Sammy in The Other Half I do believe it was called.

    Now Eddie has his son, who has supposedly been playing for less than a year stepping in. Eddie is just not right in the head these days......

    Ever read david lee's book, crazy from the heat? to read that, I don't think eddie ever was right in the head..

    anyway, I bet they implode about 5 shows into the tour, and cancel the thing..
