    This is a question for those of you aren't big Dave fans. I've recently opened my eyes up to just how lame Dave seems to be. For me it was this last video of his.

    Was it when he left VH?
    When he sat there losing, what was it, 7 awards in one night?
    When he wanted to make a movie?
    When he thought he could produce, and Skyscraper came out?
    When the ALAE tour failed?
    Being picked up for trying to buy a dime bad?
    Playing Vegas?
    Playing Vegas for only a week, and getting canned?
    Being used by VH to move BOV1, and then dumped into the street like a whore?
    Failing to get a bassist for DLR Band, and then losing both guitarists and not being able to tour?
    When he started fronting a tribute band?
    When he kept stealing guitarists from another tribute band?
    When you saw the clips that are supposed to promote this new DVD?

    Did I miss anything?

    Oh wait, I sure did!

    When he started suing everyone who might owe him money?
    When he stopped paying everyone who he owed money?

    Mike, I can't say for sure, but I have a pretty good idea that DLR is, even as we speak, crossing your name of his "BBQ Party Invitation List".

    Depends how you define failure. If you try something and the results are less than stellar does that automatically make you a failure? As an artist if you're not going platinum are you deemed to be a failure or can you have success in creating a product that you and a maybe a few thousand others can enjoy. Dave's has seen and done it all. He's been at the absolute zenith of his career during his heyday with Van Halen and on the flip side he's sold a few thousand units of his DLR band album. I guess if your going to compare everything Dave does with the staggering heights he reached with Van Halen it's always going to fall short. I'm sure Dave doesn't it look at it that way and I don't either.

    Dave used to call himself, "The toastmaster general of the immoral majority". I've always considered him, in his own peculiar way, to be the "Frank Sinatra" of rock 'n' roll. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Its kind of sad really the way some people think of Roth. Even a lot of people who used to be big VH fans. It just seems like diamond dave has lost touch with the reality that most of the fans of Van halen have grown up. And sometimes it seems like he trys so hard to be cool that it falls short. But he could wind up to be what he always wanted and that is Americas favorite game show host.

    When he did that Crazy From the Heat Ep.

    I mean c'mon, that was like a Richard Simmons Sweatin' to the Oldies soundtrack.

    Why cant you guys realize that not only Dave, but whole band of Van Halen past and present members are a joke. Eddie, Alex, are a joke because they can only be a sure success and get the publics attention with Dave or Sammy (mainly Dave at this point) and Sammy's album sales havent been eye dropping either. Gary is also a joke.

    So yes, VH is my favorite band, but Dave, Sammy, Alex, Mike and Gary are all a joke now. But Dave and Sammy are less of a joke now than Eddie and Alex. Atleast their doing something with their music.

    After ALAE

    I think he was lucky that the times were still with him up until the begining of ALAE, after that the lost in a time warp effect kinda kicked in.

    The wheels fell off for me when Dave announced his last tour. ANOTHER tour where he's doing the Van Halen show. I can recall posting a lot at the time about how disappointed I was that Dave was going to re-milk the old days yet again.

    I can get behind YFLM or this DVD a lot more than I can get behind going out year after year and selling your soul to the nostalgia fests.
