    Who do you guys think Eddie and the guys had more fun performing with? In my opinion it was Sammy because you watch Live Without A Net and the guys are just having the time of their lives up there. I could be wrong about them having more with Sammy, its just all the videos I've seen of them performing with Diamond Dave, usually the video is dead centered on Roth.

    Well you would think that from all the photos and videos from the Roth era that they were having a blast , then Roths gone and they all hate each other . They get Hagar in the band and it seems like they love him for ten years then he`s gone and they hate him (except for Mike it seems)I`ve read in one of Eds interviews in `96 or `97 that they had problems with Sam for every album they did with him except 5150 so who knows . I`m sure there were plenty of things about Ed that pissed off Roth and Sam during their years in the band [img]graemlins/drunk.gif[/img]
    You may think I`m being mean but I`m really just being sarcastic

    I think they had a lot more fun with Roth than they cared to admit afterwards. They don't exactly look to be suffering too much mental anguish in any footage I have seen.

    Having said that, I don't doubt there was problems - I can't imagine Roth would be an easy guy to deal with on a daily basis, but I think these problems were probably exaggerated to the nth degree once he left.

    5150 was the album where the band was their happiest. A new singer/start, and the album went to #1. Also you can hear it in Ed's guitar. 1986 was happy times for Van Halen. So I'd have to go with the Sammy era here.

    Not to mention Ed looked like he couldn't stop smiling in the LWAN video.

    Disagreed.

    I saw VH twice w/ Dave and twice w/
    Sam and got LWAN vid when it came out.
    In my estimation, there was a distinct
    downshift in energy from Dave to Sam
    both on record and especially live.
    Say what you will about Dave, Sam just
    never pushed Ed (or pushed his buttons)
    like Dave did.

    I think his days with Sammy were good and great for Ed. He was "refreshed" with Sam. Ed and Dave had to get away from each other for a while after 84'. Both of them had a litte too much [img]graemlins/drunk.gif[/img]

    I have no doubt, he had a lot of fun with Sammy, and that he had a lot of fun with Dave, on stage and off.

    Will we ever see Ed this happy again ? Thats the question.

    I sure hope so [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
