    I got into Van Halen in 1984 when I was around 10 . I heard Panama on the radio and I was hooked . My cousin who is older gave me a cassette tape of their 1978 release and I was even more hooked .

    By the time I was 10 I wore that tape out and had to buy a new one When I was 12 I went to my first concert in 1986 and seen them live with Sammy 3 times that year .

    Since 1986 I have not missed 1 VH concert in the Detroit metro area . I was bummed when Dave left BUT Sammy made me happy and I dug Van Hagar as well .

    I tend to feel that the Dave era material is slighty better than Van Hagar but like I said , I still enjoy the 86 - 96 material , (Humans Being) .

    If I was to say I had a favorite era I would probably have to say Sammy because I grew up on that material and seen them live TONS of times with Sammy . But I feel the 78-84 music will stand the test of time longer .

    I like em all, even the Gary era. But, I am partial to the Sammy era. Sometimes we read where some say: "the Sammy (Dave, or/and Gary) sucked." But, to be honest, I think Van Halen makes great music no matter who they have singing. I would even purchase a new CD if they had Alice Cooper as the singer.... On second thought, maybe not.

    I'm just showing my respect to VH; for me they were still alive in 99 and 2000. Look at it this way, the RHRN tour ended in 1993 and Balance came out in 1995. But we don't ignore 1994 and refer to the Sammy era as 1986-1993+1995-1996. We still include 1994. That's why I include 1999 and 2000.

    I like 'em all, but I prefer the years 1985-1996 (Sammy).

    Gee, wouldn't get THAT idea from anything, would you?
