basemetal: /but......Dave > Sammy as far as Van Halen goes
shanrick: Subby is two dumb.
give me doughnuts: After the way they treated Michael Anthony, the Van Halen brothers can go fark them selves.
Godscrack: Pre 1984 Van Halen - Raw. Hungry. Non stop party. Energy. Hotwire a car, do a beer run and hit the keg parties. Spend a night in jail.
H31N0US: I loved old VH but DLR looks like he's trying to head up a new version of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.Guys: you had a great six years and I enjoyed the many copies of VH1 that I had that kept getting stolen. One of the best albums ever when you consider how different it was at the time. I ruined a couple rewind buttons on that tape.But stop now. Go play golf or something.Kthx.
CapeFearCadaver: *too sad and lonely, Subby.
Godscrack: [img9.imageshack.us image 560x494]Thanks for the memories Van Halen. Where have all the good times gone?
Gordon Bennett: I do recall reading that Van Halen were one of the bands considered for the film "Rock n Roll High School" but were rejected on advice from the label that they were too wild and destructive for the film crew to work with.
Godscrack: Mikey1969:Ahhh, the Coliseum, back in the days of free-for-all festival seating. Nothing like having your feet on the ground, and your head about 3 feet offset from that, never once 'quite' standing upright through the show.At the September 7, 1982 show, I remember some people lighting a can of hair spary or something, throwing a 6-7 foot flame way up int top seats. David Lee Roth said to them "You guys better cut that shiat out. Or I'm gonna come up there and kick your ass!"My second concert was Van Hagar at Compton Terrace.1986? I was there. That was the last show I saw at that venue.
Jake Havechek: I like Van Halen, not Van Hagar, and the 5 original Van Halen records will live forever.
AdolfOliverPanties: Dave lamenting not having an original members reunion will do nothing but fracture his relationship with Eddie. According to Ed, Wolfie is in the band forever. Unless Wolfie quits, Mike ain't ever coming back. And Dave saying what he said is the exact sort of thing that would set Eddie off, as he has a short fuse and is a well known asshole.
buntz: Say what you want about DLR, early Van Halen was fantastic.And his ability to talk endlessly makes me miss him once he took over after Stern left.I actually enjoyed the D-Ro show!/he had a boner for Pink, though, that I never could abide

Unless Wolfie quits, Mike ain't ever coming back. And Dave saying what he said is the exact sort of thing that would set Eddie off, as he has a short fuse and is a well known asshole.Why the fark would Mike ever come back anyway? It would take a hell of a lot of money, I would think. fark Van Halen.As far as the Dave/Sammy thing goes. There's no comparison.I mean that. It isn't a valid comparison. its apples and oranges. One is straight ahead cock-rock the other is faux cerebral pop.Both have their place. I personally prefer hagar, but mostly because I dont think Dave puts any effort into what he does.
give me doughnuts: Met Dave and Eddie after a show on the 1984 tour. Dave was completely hyper but cool. Eddie was a surly dick who couldn't be bothered to meet some fans.
OldManDownDRoad: Godscrack: Pre 1984 Van Halen - Raw. Hungry. Non stop party. Energy. Hotwire a car, do a beer run and hit the keg parties. Spend a night in jail.Funny you should put it that way. A friend of mine is a lighting contractor, has done shows and concerts since the mid-70s on both coasts and Europe. He's gone drinking with Lynyrd Skynyrd in Mississippi dive bars, bounced off the walls of CBGBs with Television and generally abused his liver and brain cells for a couple decades now. He says the wildest group of people he ever dealt with were the Van Halen crew when they were regulars on the Strip in the early 80s. "They were up for anything, especially if it involved underaged girls."Which wouldn't be a bad thing to have carved on your tombstone.
Mikey1969: You're right, VH should just quit while they're ahead.
