    Dave played rythym guitar on "Could This Be Magic?" and "Angel Eyes" (if you've heard that one )

    No, he ain't great, but he never claimed to be.

    Still, he got the job done.

    Sam's a good guitar player, but he always will be a solo artist. And I like him better that way.

    Sammy can Roth can not, let's have some fun shall we?

    Sammy can Roth can not....... what is mess up Roth songs.

    Ummm...me thinks when somebody is in a band full of great musicians (Roth in Van Halen) the lead singer needs to be more of a showman than another musician. That lineup had 3 great musicians and 1 great frontman...IMO provided great balance.

    Well unless Sammy was being rhetorical, Sammy can....

    ...start sucking off both Ed and Dave after saying he'd do so if all the music he made with Ed wasn't better than the music Ed made with DLR....

    you guys ever heard Dave play that song "79th and Sunset"???


    that's some pretty good fingerpickin' he's doing for someone who aint suppose to play guitar.

    Sammy in my opinion is just one big boring rock n roll clitche.I don`t give a shit how long he was in Van Halen.He dose`nt have one fraction of the genuine charisma or superior showmanship of David.After x number of years in Van Halen,I`m glad I don`t have to hear another one of his screaching offerings in the mame of artistry. Roth Rules!!!!!! Suck on that.

    It's hard to imagine VH lasting until 1985 with Dave if Dave had been trying to better himself as a guitar player. You have to play to your strengths, and Dave recognized that his strength was showmanship, and he took that to a new level.
