    dave doesn't sound like he used to, and he was never a bonified "singer" so i don't know why people are coming back from these concerts saying he sucked and all. what's to expect? roth or sam fan, everyone *should* know going into the shows dave isn't going to sound anything like sam, he sounds like dave, and he acts like dave. i don't see why people can't get past that. does his schtick get old? sometimes it does, sure. but to me, dave is damn funny at times. he's a bit of an ass from time to time, but it's his demeanor. i don't agree with his eddie van heiniken comments but all i want is a show when i see him and that what i got when i saw him. keep in mind he doesn't have mikey covering his ass on the backup vocals right now either. if he did, dave would sound as bad as a lot of you make him out to be. it's kinda like the idea of the sum of the parts is greater than the whole. the guys dave has up there now are great, but they are nothing like van halen, plain and simple. ed would go ballistic beofre he let a show go on that many times with that kind of sound.

    as for sam, i dunno. do i want two or 3 more mediocre albums with vh? or do i want one or two more with dave and the tour of a lifetime??

    or...a farewell tour with both? either way, i want dave in the mix. that era of van halen deserves to be heard. and dammitt, i wanna hear it

    Incredible post! No solo stuff will satisfy me. I want the original chemistry back that is more than the sum of its parts.

    JMJ is right on, Van Halen is "boring" without Dave bringing the show. Part of Dave's show is the Van Halen sound with Mike, Alex, and Ed.

    Sammy is Sammy, and thats alright.

    All u hear is how sammy is a better singer so he is better for VH now. Well, to that i say that each of the three tenors are better singers than Dave too. Does that mean that they should be the singer of VH, hell no!!! So they need to quit with the better singer bullshit!!!
    Lets Hope VH gets some Sensible Shoes that lead them back to Dave.
