    To the average music listener out there when a new CD with Sammy is released they probably won't even know the difference much less what has been going on. Eddie forced Cherone to sound like him so much the average listener didn't even know 'Whithout You' was someone else. The biggest flack will come from the Daveheads, who, well at least the general music adience knows it is 2001 and not 1978, and woman really don't shit sugar. Sales wouldn't be the greates simply because rock music is dead, and will be for along time to come. New Cult CD I think is one of their best, but it is dead in the water, for a rock band to have any success you have to have the almighty power ballad, Aeroshit and Bon Jovi are masters at this, Creeds' Arms Wide Open perfect example. Sammy will get VH back on track, and again to the top of the charts because together these guys are another of the masters, and they will still kick ass with other songs. Dave simply can't do it period, which would make a Dave reunion a short term cash cow which will fall apart and piss the daveheads off even more. Sammy would be a long term investment who will be there till the final end comes, probably after two more CD's. Sammy will be perceived as if he never left, mostly because the average listener wouldn't really know anyway, or has long since forgotten.
    A new Sammy CD, 2 million copies with a good solid Sammy/VH style power ballad about the joys and tribulations of love in one form or another *lol*

    If the reunion happens, I hope Sammy's perceived exactly for what he is . . . an incredible talent whose efforts will save us fans from a lonely, desolate VH blackout.

    I think at least $2 million copies sold with a new Sammy album sounds realistic. VH3 is horrible and it sold 500,000.

    I agree with Van Gully's comment. The public perception of Sammy is different than it is for Dave although both are a little old for rock&roll etc. etc.

    If Sammy is indeed back and the music is rocking/really good then I'll simply judge Sammy being back as a good thing for the band - I'll basically be happy just to see the band making good music again.

    As for everyone else... that's probably a different story.

    Who is Sammy Hagar aka The Red Rocker. Well Hmm let's see. Oh yeah he's the curly haired blonde with the really good pipes that took over the VH machine in the mid 80's let them to 4 number one albums, sold millions of records and toured to sold out venues. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    A new Van Halen album with Sammy would be incredible? Well, I also have a hard time believing that it will happen. YR, is this what you meant by incredible? Let's hope we never find out.

    Hell, ANYTHING new from VH seems far from 'credible' (aka incredible) these days.

    However, if VH does return with Sammy singing, my expectations will be rather high. After all this cloak and dagger bullshit, whatever they do better be pretty damn good.

    What's up Abe?

    Chandra Levy may turn up before Van Halen decides WTF they're going to do.

    Maybe everthing about Condit is BS and Chandra is the new singer for VH? It would certainly explain the silence and mystery surrounding her disappearance.
