    If you're one of those that always felt Sammy couldn't hold a candle to the Rothrocker, does the idea of Sam and Dave pounding the booze and lighting up the bud together backstage change your opinion?

    I've always thought highly of Sammy. I just prefer the Dave era of VH.

    I can't say I've "Always" thought highly of Sammy, but I'll pretty much go with what you just said!

    I never had a thing against Sammy. Shit, the guy had Danniels figured out even before I did, and let's be honest, the first Montrose album is nothing short of a classic.

    But that doesn't change the fact that he raided Hallmark cards for the cheese ballads and wrote some damn ugly lyrics for some other Van Hagar songs.

    Welcome back, Van HALEN!!!!

    Seems to me that if you were to ask for peoples opinions, then it would be a good topic for the opinions forum!

    You know you're right there. I didn't like Sammy for a long time when I was younger because I felt he was keeping Dave away from VH. The older I got the more I realized it wasn't his fault. It was Dave's for leaving in the first place.

    Now FORD: that is not a positive statement.
    If you listened to Van Halen you would understand that Eddie, Alex, Mike and Sammy had the best intentions for the band...to make damn good songs to touch people! "pop" music is music that is popular. Cheese is for kids.
    Ever hear the song "Get Up"?
    Just go for it!

    Nah.
    I didn't really care for Sammy Hagar before he joined Van Halen and wanted nothing to do with the band after he'd joined. But since I've been at these forums I've become a little more interested in hearing some of his stuff, both solo and with Van Halen. Still don't like the fact that Dave and Edward couldn't work out their differences in 1985 and the success Van Halen had with Hagar pretty much kept them from having to try, but that's all water under the bridge now, so might as well see what all the fuss was about...
