    Forgive me, I'm new here. What EXACTLY is an 'Up Front Fanatic'? With 30 odd pages here or whatever, it must be of some relevance. Anyone want to fill me in on this? Thanks guys!

    The Up Front Fanatics are Hagar fans who wanted to start a EUAS wannabe group of their own. The phrase comes from Sammy's song "Heavy Metal" (Ironic, since it has nothing to do with the Van Hagar material the UFF's would die to defend).

    Most of the UFF's are ok guys, despite their love for cheese ballads

    The UFF are a bunch of fans of Sammy Hagar(Montrose, solo, and Van Halen) fans who get together here and talk about what is going on with Sammy and to defend him aginst all attacks made here and at other VH web sites.
    We do not all hate Dave or the Dave era, we just really like Sammy and his music.

    We are not a wanna be anything, just a loyal bunch of fans.

    Since FORD answered for the UFF, FORD stands for Fuck Off Ray Daniels.

    Ray Daniels is the old VH manager who most of us feel helped to fuck up everything from 1995 on, including Sammy leaving, the hiring of Gary, and maybe even the JFK assination

    At least we could give him the chair for that one! Anybody got Mark Fuhrman's phone number? I'm sure for a dozen donuts he would plant the evidence.

    I DO know who Ray is...it's my theory that he screwed everything up from the getgo--a well-orchestrated plan to unravel the Van Halen ball of string to make a few quick bucks. He wanted Sammy out, and set EVERYTHING up to make sure he didn't want to stay. Personally, I think Van Halen is 3 times as good with Sammy than with Dave, but I'm a realist; I know VH needs Dave back to have their proper impact on this current wasteland of a music scene. If you notice my posts, I LIKE the original Van Halen--I just PREFER them with Sammy. But that's me. I'm also an Eddie freak--I was 14 when I met him...his demeanor was great! He was a nice guy--a human being--NORMAL, as it were. Since he's been such an inspiration to me as a player, writer, musician in general, I want the best for HIM, regardless of how I feel about the result. If Dave is what it takes for Eddie to regain his proper position atop the imposters, so be it. I'll cheer just as loud---but for HIS glory, not mine. God, I'm pathetic, but I'm being honest. SO, if anyone wonders where I stand, here it is: I would like to see Sammy stay with Van Halen forever, but I have to be realistic. I'll love 'em no matter what. With Dave...with Sammy....with Gary....with the cookie monster...whatever. So I guess I'm a 'not-up-front-fanatic'. I'll take it however I can get it (hmmm, sounds like last call at a bar ). And from what I gather here at the links, not everyone agrees with that, but that's great. I would LOVE to hear Eddie do ALL instrumentals too, but I know that's a long shot. By the way--how WOULD everybody feel about EVH doing instrumentals, with NO singers to cause controversy? I'd love to know how you guys stand on that. And again, thank you guys for all being such VH nuts---maybe this sounds familiar to some of you---ANYTIME Van Halen is mentioned, anyone from my high school thinks of me!!! Not a bad association, eh? My parents thought I was nuts too, but it's nice to know I'm not alone here. OK..I've had too much to drink tonight (which I NEVER do, go figure!) I'm sorry for the poor writing..I'll clean up my act..you deserve my sobriety.
