    I saw some "creative accounting" done on album sales in other threads, so let me give you a little update from the RIAA about Sam & Dave solo album sales.
    Do not, I repeat, do not believe what they say in their own interviews. Both guys have consitently skipped math classes while in school!

    Sam
    Montrose platinum
    Standing Hampton platinum
    VOA platinum
    3 lock box gold
    Sammy Hagar (1987) gold
    Unboxed gold

    Dave
    Eat'em platinum
    Skyscraper platinum
    Crzay platinum
    A little gold

    These are sales in the US only.

    Yeah???

    But...How many bottles of Tequila has he sold? [img]graemlins/drunk.gif[/img]
    "Keep honking buddy. I'm reloading..." -The Mard

    "......HEY!.............alright............." -BIG FOOT

    " I know what you're thinking: "Do I want to watch Mard? We know that horses were very strong and could actually stop airplanes from flying away. The ones made out of stone called "statues" -- occasionally came to life and rode off is a colonial cliche. How many more times do we need to hear about how the oppressive Raj's wore villainous black capes, crafted cunning plastic masks to impersonate people, and drained all the blood from their slaves so they could keep the fluid in bottles in their dungeons? I mean, YAWN!

    But if you're willing to sit through this dry sort of historical drama one more time -- or even just this dry historical review -- you will not be disappointed. In fact, some of you might just learn something they didn't teach you in school!-

    Hard-core (or hardheaded... you decide) Dave and Sam fans use albums sales only when it suits their respective singer.

    As others have correctly pointed out, N*Suck and the Backdoor Boys have already sold more albums than Van Halen has (and probably ever will). And while that's a really sad indictment in terms of taste, the world over, it doesn't speak to the quality of Van Halen... Specifically Classic =VH=.

    More to the point, or at least my point - ain't nobody telling me that 5150 was better than Fair Warning since it sold better.

    On the flip side, it's just as retarded to argue that Van Halen 1 is better than Balance because it's sold more.

    It's better because it's better.

    Ya dig? Of course you do.

    Since this doesn't pertain to the tour I'm moving this to the Opinions/Speculation forum.

    No 5150 is not better than FW, BUT "Summer Nights" and "5150" are better than the last two garbage tracks on FW. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Aha!

    "While Sunday Afternoon In The Park" and "One Foot Out The Door" are the last two songs on FW, "Summer Nights" and "5150" are not the final two tracks on 5150.

    As we all know (although *some* of us choose not to admit it LOL) "5150" is followed by "Inside" - one of the lamest VH songs of either era.

    It's a different ballgame when it's "SAITP" and "OFOTD" matched up against "5150" and "Inside," IMO.

    [sarcasm] You devious, underhanded Sammy sheep! I cannot allow this blasphemy to continue! I will put on my suit of armor and do battle with you, defending the honor of David Lee Roth to the death, if need be! [/sarcasm]

    "Garbage tracks?"

    Don't make me ban you, Brett... :coup: [img]graemlins/drunk.gif[/img]
