tnpir: I firmly believe Van Halen was ten times better with Hagar than with DLR, and you can quote me.
AdolfOliverPanties: Thank GOD the brown sound is back on the latest record.
MaxxLarge: ...And I'd be nailing Kate Upton if she found me attractive.
olddeegee: His book was much better than I expected from him. Kinda prescient on Ronnie Montrose's passing. Also the exploits of drinking Van Halen and a sexy Valerie Bertinelli were good reading.
Sin_City_Superhero: By all accounts, he is a complete douchebag to work with. Of course the same thing is said about David being impossible to work with. But only ONE of those two guys was fire-able from Van Halen...
bearded clamorer: Didn't care for VanHagar.That said, every show of his I saw in the 70's and 80's was well worth the price of admission./Dude looks pretty good for being 65
show me: It just seems like the writing of the songs Van Hagar did weren't nearly as good as DLRVH was, very pop sounding.
Sin_City_Superhero: Eddie is the reason VH couldn't keep a vocalist. By all accounts, he is a complete douchebag to work with. Of course the same thing is said about David being impossible to work with. But only ONE of those two guys was fire-able from Van Halen...
Mikey1969: That said, the concert last year with Dave back in the band sucked, and that was from all aspects except Wolfgang. Everyone else fell down in some way, even though they keep trying to pin it all ion Dave.
MrEricSir: David Lee Rock
bearded clamorer: /Dude looks pretty good for being 65
dougermouse: The way I see it, there are bands that have the same name, but aren't the same band. Van Halen/Van Hagar, Bush Anthrax / Joey Anthrax and pre-Black Metallica / Post Black Metallica. Once you accept that they are just different bands, then you can enjoy the music. Van Hagar ISNT Van Halen, Truth proved that. (And Carnal proved somebody in the VH camp wanted DLR back) But as Van Hagar records (or another Sammy solo effort) they are good albums. We should enjoy them for what they are.
AdolfOliverPanties: But Ed seemed just fine with ditching his balls-out rock and roll brown sound to go with the keyboard heavy and way over compressed guitar sound that was the hallmark of those horrible, horrible Van Hagar albums.
dougermouse: Truth proved that
AdolfOliverPanties: I will go as far as to say that it wasn't all Sammy's fault. Sure, he is bland, writes ridiculously sophomoric lyrics:
MrEricSir: Face it, folks:David Lee Rock = RockSammy Hagar = Adult contemporary
rickythepenguin: yeah, there were some really, really, reaaaaaaaaaaaalllly bad You tube clips that sadly, resembled those hilarious "Rush shreds", "Dream theatre shreds", "metallica shreds", etc., videos. I saw a "Jump" where wolfgang didn't know what the fark he was doing and Eddie was just awful.
The Billdozer: Bush was ok for one album (Sound of White Noise) and a couple other songs ("Random Acts of Senseless Violence", "Safe Home"), but it wasnt the same by any stretch. But they still played music from every album before Bush joined up.
Wild Eyed and Wicked: tnpir: I firmly believe Van Halen was ten times better with Hagar than with DLR, and you can quote me.I thought I was the only one with this opinion...there is something about Dabid Lee Roth that I just do not like. I wore out my Van Hagar tapes.
