    Eddie's last ballad VS Dave's last ballad.

    Is there even a contest.

    I still can't believe that people bought that trash VH3 and didn't buy DLR Band.

    Never heard Black Sand so I'm not going to comment on which is better, but I'll say this.

    I Like How Many Say I. It grew on me. But I don't like it because it's musically great, I just like the lyrics and the meaning underneath them.

    How Many Say I is THE worst VH song ever recorded. Basically, IT SUCKS!

    Now, 'Black Sand' from Dave's 'DLR Band' album is very cool. Black Sand wins hands down.

    Two quite special songs. Hmmm...
    Black Sand is one of my favorite tunes from DLR Band. One of Dave's greatest ballads.

    How Many Say I is different. Not many Van Halen songs sound like that. After listening to that song I was impressed. I always knew that Edward Van Halen wasn't just a guitar player but a multi-talented musician. It's great that we can sometimes hear this kind of stuff from Eddie.

    Two first-class songs so it's very hard to say which song is better. I'd call it a tie but if I have to choose it's "How Many Say I".

    This is one of the lamest vs topics yet. Worse than some of the completely off-topic ones. Is this some sort of feel-good topic for the 3 haters? While we're at it, let's beat up the small retarded kid too...

    That said, Blacksand is a far better song. Apples to really pulpy oranges.

    I agree with Mike, this comparison is pointless as these songs have nothing in common at all.

    Seems like an obvious attempt to slam "VH3" yet again. Plus how many people you think eve know the song "Black Sand?"

    Brett -

    I know I've been pretty vocal with my slamming of VH3 and I realize I probably pissed off several VH3 fans doing it - really, not my intention - but just know this - if VH3 was that good, Gary would still be in VH and there would be NO possibility of a Van Halen reunion.

    I slam the album, correct. But I don't slam Eddie, Alex or Mike, or the people who liked it.

    I just really, REALLY feel that Eddie did design VH3 and Gary to be the complete opposite of David Lee Roth era Van Halen, and what people expected from them, just to show people, somehow that Van Halen can do without Dave.

    What was the Sammy Hagar era designed for?

    No idea. At least they did several good songs with Sammy, and 5150 was a pretty good album.

    Raldo, that was too funny! I'm still laughing.

    Really, I never heard Black Sand, but didn't really like How Many Say I? Sorry Ed. It was a nice thought, though.
