    With Sammy & Dave touring this summer, that will mean there will be a moratorium on the Sam/Dave comparisons (bashing).

    That leaves Gary all alone to face the wrath when things here get dull and still "no news is good news" comes our way.

    Choosing Gary Cherone to replace Hagar a few years ago was a horrendus mistake. The band knows it, that's why they dropped him. Let's face it guys, this band made the biggest mistake by splitting up in the first place. THE ONLY REAL VAN HALEN IS THE ORIGINAL LINEUP. Van Halen 3 is the worst album they have ever released in their career. The teaming with Hagar did allow Ed to grow more musically as the songwriting soared to new heights even though they got a little more on the sentimental side eith songs like I Cant Stop Loving You.(Blagh)! The best era was with Roth period. Listening to their music was like dropping from a plane at 2000 feet feeling the afterburn from the exhaust on your back and once you hit the ground you remain at a high for hours. The music they released the last few years especially on 3 was definately lacking something. Cherone should have stuck with Nuno and kept writing that gooey popsicle garb that they were so good at. By the way Sammy's solo effort rocks but I'll always remain a true old,classic whatever you want to call it vanhalenhead peace paul

    We can debate Gary's arrival in Van Halen till we turn blue in the face but I definately don't blame him for the poor showing of VH3. Ed made a couple of big mistakes along the way which contributed to the ill received Van Halen 3. Having 3 singers in the band in the span of a few months fractured VH's fan base and pissed everyone off especially with the possibility of a Dave/Van Halen reunion. Van Halen 3 was Ed's baby and the wrong album at the wrong time. To go that far off the beaten path when introducing a new singer into the fold was not a very good move on Eddie's part. If the guys had just simply stuck to the same formula they had with Sammy, Gary might have had a shot. The album needed better production, more Mike and Gary hving a larger voice in the direction Ed and Co. wanted to go. I don't think Gary was able to express himself the way he should have been able to and that's part of the problem on the record. The band choose Gary and should have had the nads to go forth with the follow up to 3. I'm pretty sure the band would have had the vision to recognize the mistakes they made with Van Halen 3 and correct them on the follow up. All that being said I still liked VH3. Take it for what it's forth, Van Halen on the ecclectic side.

    Sorry but compared to Dave and Sammy, Gary was always second-rate. Now he's the guy that crashed Van Halen in most record labels' eyes which is why he probably can't get another deal.

    That really sucks that Gary gets the majority of the blame for 3's failure, when it should have all been on Eddie.
    I think that the true die-hard fans like the ones that frequent here and other sites know just who fucked up Van Halen.

    But the casual fans that make up the other 70% of their sales think it was all Gary's fault.
    With the right producer IN CHARGE, VH 3 could have been a very good album.

    I think Gary ruined his career by joining VH. It's like Sammy said, he's known by some people as the guy that bombed with Van Halen [img]graemlins/cry.gif[/img] .

    Yeah but I think anyone but Dave or Sammy would have bombed with Van Halen at that point.
