    Every now and then I come across posts on the Van Halen forums that include signatures to the effect of "Van Halen is Dave Eddie Micahel And Alex... End of Discussion... Eat em and Smile... etc etc. Roth fans are like homosexuals around here, overly vocal about being who they are... but that's not my point.

    What I want explained is why you supposedly don't pay attention to Van Halen without Dave, but you DO pay attention to Dave without Van Halen. Your signatures are an obvious tribute to Roth's backing band in 86... the only band other than Van Halen that has ever written good music with him. Its pretty obvious to me that its the band writing the music, the obvious source of the popularity for him to ride. There's no way to deny it... post Vai era, Roth had and still has the popularity status of Punky Brewster. So here's the thing... why not pay attention to the people making the music... worry about what Eddie, Mike, Alex, Vai, and Sheenan or doing... (or not doing... and just move on to somewhere else) and shoot that gimp horse before he falls down right out from under you.

    Please, at least consider it... its the only humane thing to do.

    The other day I made what I thought was an impressive Gary Coleman reference, but I'll be the first to admit that the Punky Brewster reference tops the Gary one.

    well i think the dave van halen IS the ONLY van halen i care to hear.thats my opinion and although i dont have any of that at the bottom of my posts i see nothing wrong with it!!!if people want to state that at the bottom of posts that BELONG to them...more power to them,infact after reading this i may put that at the bottom of my posts just for spite.
    If dave didnt put anything into the writting,then YOU explain to me why the music got soft with hagar while VH and dave ROCKED!!One more thing this group has went through 3 singerss,but surely it was all the fault of the singers!!yeah,right.

    That's a statement from a man who's never been properly exposed to ALAE, obviously.

    Now, I'm a big Dave fan, but I'm no Rothling. I like Dave with whatever band he's with (some more than others) and I like Van Halen with whatever singer they're with (some more than others).

    If you take the name argument (it's only VH with Dave) to seriously, here's what you've got: NOTHING. It's saying that Van Halen isn't the name of a band, but rather the 4 personalities together that are Van Halen. Well, over the course of 15 years those personalities have changed. Even if you put them back together, it's not Van Halen.

    Now, we all know that that's a lot of crap. Van Halen is a band that changes vocalists too often.

    I really don't understand how some of you can tune out when the Roth era ended. It blows my mind...I don't know what to say. You basically hate Van Halen.

    Quote: "What I want explained is why you supposedly don't pay attention to Van Halen without Dave, but you DO pay attention to Dave without Van Halen."

    I discovered VH with the release of Fair Warning and was hooked. I have the first 6 albums and have seen the original four in concert several times. These four men, to me, are Van Halen.

    When the group split up, I chose to leave with Dave. This is why I don't acknowledge the other incarnations of VH, and this is why I have supported Dave's solo efforts. Is that logical? Maybe not. To me, Dave completed Van Halen. I'm not saying Dave IS Van Halen, but he completed the group.

    Most of you decided to continue with Sammy (and some with Gary). Some of you haven't followed Dave's solo career. This doesn't bother me...it's the choice you made, just as I have made mine. Have I missed out on some good music? Probably, but I can't bring myself to buy the other eras...I know, I know...kind of silly, huh? Blind loyalty to a total stranger...oh well.

    Guess you either love Dave or you hate him.

    To me, looking beyond the music...is the attitude. I love Dave's vibe of positivity...that's with him no matter what band he's in and that's one of the reasons I choose to follow Dave.

    That's my explanation, and I'm sticking to it.

    Don't toy with my emotions, like that Abe.



    Anyway, might I add Webster (Popadopalos) [Awwwwww yeah, Down In Falmes KNOWS his old school television shows. ] to the "How The Hell Can You Remember Them" list?

    (Word, to that fine-ass mother of Webster's, too... "Maam." LOL. )

    if you hate dave so much or the refrence of dave being praised, so much on this site.
    get use to it this is a van halen fan site.
    3 singers.
    obviously there isnt going to be a equal amount of like or dislike for all the members.
    im a roth van halen fan
    i enjoyed some of sammys work with van halen and liked two songs of vh3 prodject.

    but comeing in here stiring up the poop is uncalled for

    everyday theres something to disagree about on here, but hey .
    its no big thing.
    daves mouth with van halen rocked harder and was fun. and is and allways will be kickass music.
    sammy brought to the table power ballads
    and gary brought in a huge set of balls trying to fill shoes of sammy and dave.
    we all give each other shit one time or another in good fun, but you seem so determined to change our minds about dave.
    sorry for you.
    and just the tone of your post make me sense someone who is big fan of sammy or something and feels disrespected cause no ones listening.
    quit causeing a shit and just join in on post and post decent post and have fun, were not here to fight.

    Ahhh, homophobia rears its head again on Links in the form of Naco.

    As for Naco's question, to me 1984's response -- that Van Halen was greater than the sum of its parts, and Van Hagar etc. simply was not -- is the answer.
