    Did I miss something?
    Why are there all these threads with "well, whether Dave or Sammy come back . . . " ??!?

    Since when did Sammy enter the picture again?
    They were/are/whatever with Dave over the past year - NOT SAMMY!!

    As HAIN23 had said in another thread,
    a VH/SAMMY reunion would be anti-climactic!!
    Don't get me wrong, they made some great music with Sam!

    But, classic VH with DLR is what made Van Halen as big of a name as they are.
    With Dave is where it all began!
    I, as well as millions of other fans, are dying to see the original lineup together again. I saw every show that came thru the western NY area since '86 with Sammy and I even saw the latest one with Gary. But, I never got to see the original.
    To watch videos of them during their classic years, like the '83 US Festival, is just awesome.

    And, seeing some of the video clips, pics and mp3's of Dave's current tour, he appears to be back and better than in a very long time!! I saw some of the '99 stuff and I thought he sucked and his voice was shot. Now, he's back to where he needs to be!

    I just can't figure out where all this Sammy crap is coming from?!?!! Has he been working with VH lately?? Not that I'm aware!
    Is it just Sammy diehards trying to keep his name mentioned?!! What the hell?

    Anyways, hopefully VH and DLR can get their shit together and work this deal out and GET THE SHOW ON THE ROAD!! This would definately help in getting today music back to where it should be!! [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    You have missed quite a bit VH2001! www.melodicrock.com
    has reported that Billy Sheehan has quit Mr. Big, and in every interview lately Billy and Steve Vai say that the reunion with Roth might happen!

    It goes without saying that if Roth is back with the EEAS band, Sammy will be the singer that VH will look too next! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    I'm moving this topic to Speculation.
    Right Now you're reading my post!

    YankeeRose - No actually I didn't miss the stuff at Melodicrock!!

    But, most of that is just rumors!
    I have seen stranger things happen, but I don't believe Sammy will be in any of VH's plans. Even if they have a plan B, C & D, I do not think Sammy is part of them!!


    And, BTW, why is this being moved to SPECULATION?? I'm asking why Sammy is being mentioned in all the other threads??!! For example "Dave or Sammy, what if........... " - if that's not SPECULATION, WTF is it??!!
    But that thread remains in the MAIN VH DISCUSSION!!

    Yup. And it also goes without saying that Sammy wants nothing to do with VH. Sam-fans should open their eyes to that. He's said that at every opportunity, and also said how happy he is with the Waboritas. Read the liner notes to Ten-13, and tell me that Sammy wants into VH. Listen to Ten-13, and tell me that Sammy could do better with VH. His band has really come together. He may not be moving large numbers of records, but he's writing great music and doing well touring. 2 outta 3 ain't bad.

    VH may look to Sammy if what they really want falls through, but Sammy doesn't want anyhing to do with Van Halen.

    Yankee was right on in moving this topic to opinions, VH2001.

    So what's Van Halen going to do if Dave gets the EEAS band back together? Everyone keeps on saying that if it's not Dave, it's Sammy. What other choice do they have? Try out a fourth singer?

    Sure, Sammy's doing fine without Van Halen, but I think he's the best with VH. He can still write songs, play live, and his voice is great.

    If VH has any idea of what they are going to do, I'd be surprised. They seem to be leader-less and floundering. That, or they have a lack of desire.

    I don't care what Sammy says, if VH seriously wants him back, he'd go back in a second. All this "I'm happy solo, I've got my freedom, they owe me an apology" is great, but Sammy's had a taste of the arenas and stadiums and everything that goes along with that glory. No way would he turn down the chance to reclaim that, especially knowing that he was at his most creative working alongside Eddie.

    Owning a bar and selling tequila is great, but it's not what Sammy does best. What he does best (and what got him where he is in life) is his ability to get in front of a band and sing his ass off. The opportunity to do that again with the most gifted guitarist alive would pull him back.

    That's my belief, and that's why I believe that Sammy has not been seriously courted by Van Halen yet. If he had been, he'd be back in there.

    Right on, Glenn. That's been my response to MikeL all this time. Sure, Sammy says he's happy now, but if he could go back to VH on his terms - as friend - then I think we'd see hell freeze over before he said no.

    Which, coincidentally, is the same conditions around us seeing the band work with Dave ever again. Interesting? [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    The Wabos make great music, but they're not Van Halen with Sammy. That was his creative peak. And he'll be back. Trust me.

    Give Sammy some of that "BIG FAT MONEY" and he sure as shit will/would be back.

    "suckers walk, money talks but he would sure love a few more bucks"

    It would definatley be a "new" Van Halen if Sammy does indeed come back, I just hope that now that he is a dad again, that they don't play Barney tunes.

    I also think that Sammy would come back if the conditions were right. I would like to see the band become friends again and then take it from there.
    At this point I don't know what the Hell is gonna happen but I've got the wierdest feeling that Sam's gonna pop up with VH in the very near future.

    I sure hope not.

    Do you Sammy fans really think that he wants to be the consolation singer in a band the magnitude of Van Halen? It was one thing when he joined the band after Dave quit. It's quite another thing if he becomes the singer because VH couldn't work things out with Dave. BTW, any of you Sammy fans that don't realize that the majority of Van Halen fans prefer Dave to Sammy are in serious denial. Step into reality for a minute.

    I think you my friend need to step into reality.

    I would think that your estimates of the proportion of fans that want DLR are colored by your love of Dave.

    And in the famous words of a jerky boy, "Open your fucking ears"! Dave is playing in a VH cover band, and he ain't all that great. How's that for a cosolation prize? Can't work with the real guys, so he'll fake it [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    I Coulda Hada VH -

    I totally agree!
    Dave is out on tour to get in shape and be ready when Eddie and him work things out!
    Like I said before, Dave looks and sounds better than he has in a very long time! I thought he was horrible on the '99 tour, but now I think he's giving it all he has and doing a great job!

    As for Sammy, I saw part of the free Pay-Per-View concert he just had and I was not impressed. I always will admit he has more range in his voice than Dave, but Sammy's voice has lost alot too!

    The world and music in general needs Classic VH much more than more of Sammy VH. I get excited thinking about some new VH w/ DLR!!

    If Sammy is ever to come back, I would much rather hear at least one new album with DLR before then.

    BTW - Homeunit - More people want to see Dave back - that IS reality!!
