wejash: I don't really care so not going to bother clicking the link but would the primary requirement be "The check has to clear?"
Boojum2k: Van Halen's two best albums were 1984 and 5150.
Johnny Rockets: I liked Van Hagar, sue me.
Cardrack Jim: Boojum2k: Van Halen's two best albums were 1984 and 5150.This
drewogatory: wejash: I don't really care so not going to bother clicking the link but would the primary requirement be "The check has to clear?"Nope. Dave and Michael included and proceeds to charity. I'm not much of a Sammy fan, but he's never been a dick like that AFAIK.
Shostie: Look.Roth. Hagar. Whatever.It's just important that we all agree that Gary Cherone was f*cking awful.
EvilElecBlanket: FTFA: "2004 U.S. summer tour... Anthony agreed to a pay cut and signed away his rights to the band name and logo in order to perform."That's just sad.
ColSanders: Hagar was the smartest and Anthony the most underrated member of any band in history. I'd rather those two just jam together. Screw the VH brothers.
elkboy: In before David Lee Roth fans say he was better or "more entertaining"/ get off my lawn// David Lee Roth was better and "more entertaining"/// well, crap
elkboy: EvilElecBlanket: FTFA: "2004 U.S. summer tour... Anthony agreed to a pay cut and signed away his rights to the band name and logo in order to perform."That's just sad.Low energy. Sad.
gilgigamesh: It isn't the same in either incarnation without his backing vox.
weirdneighbour: I saw them when they were pushing their first album, i liked the album but when I saw them in concert, all of Roths ass shaking and mic humping and preening for the women (i was up front) kinda turned me off, I never did buy another album of theirs and my fandom waned.
skinink: Cardrack Jim: Boojum2k: Van Halen's two best albums were 1984 and 5150.ThisAnd Diver Down. Sue me, I like cover albums.
WoodyHayes: Van Hagar > Van Halen.I've got to say though, Chickenfoot's first album was so awful that I never even gave the second one a shot.
Sin_City_Superhero: Eddie is one of those guys that was supremely talented, but his complete dickishness overrode all of his talent to make me not want to buy his albums.
Farkenhostile: I'm more of a Roth fan of VH. It is pretty sad to see him up on stage now but whatever, but he can still pull it off barely.But I cannot stand sammy hagar, the guy talks more trash than Roger Waters and people might like him if he would shut up sometimes and quit bashing everyone. 5150 was a good album though.Van Halen's last album with Dave has some pretty good songs on it (not all) Blood and fire, the trouble with never, get frosty etc are pretty good. I would be happy to get more albums like that.They made some decent stuff with sammy but were more of a pop band with him./Fan since I was a kid in the 70's
Dick Gozinya: I really dont get people that claim to hate Van Hagar because "they went pop" and blame Hagar for it. They went pop because of Eddie
AteMyBrain: They had six good albums, and created a whole new sound.?????????
Herbie555: Johnny Rockets: I liked Van Hagar, sue me.Right there with you.I think your "preferred" Van Halen singer is a lot like your preferred Doctor Who - most people tend to lock in on their "first" Doctor and prefer him even after exploring the rest of the oeuvre.If, like a whole mess of people, you were at just the right formative age, say 14/15/16 years old, when For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge dropped, then you might be a Van Hagar fan too.
ColSanders: Dick Gozinya: I really dont get people that claim to hate Van Hagar because "they went pop" and blame Hagar for it. They went pop because of EddieThis. When 5150 came out I was one of the fans crying about their conversion to pop and claiming Roth's VH was superior. I failed to acknowledge they were already moving to pop with 1984 (see "Jump").Because of Hagar's solo material I expected them to be heavier once he joined them, and was disappointed they went the opposite way. Once I got over that (years later) I realized just how damn good 5150 is.
Cewley: What's worst? Hagar the Horrible with VH? or Michael McDimwit with the DBs?
Atomic Jonb: Sooo, has anyone heard David Lee Roth lately? My wife and I saw them with DLR "singing" two years ago, and if it wasn't for the audience sing-along the show would have been unbearable. If Sammy Hagar has *any* voice left, it would be an improvement.And I *like* David Lee Roth, but he's done.
