    I met my best friend of (15 years) during a discussion on Van Halen many years ago, and we hit it off cause Halen was our favorite band and we had something in common.It helped us become great friends because we shared a love for music and the same taste and Halen was it. Right after that, Roth left, Hagar replaced. \

    My friend was a Hagar solo fan too. I never really cared much for Hagar solo, no dislike, I just thought he shouted his lyrics.

    I have always favored the original Van Halen, but I have every VH project made, including Blue Print. I have always supported VH (even have VH3) with a favortism to the Roth era.

    Inevitably, we have argued, sometimes seriously, which Van Halen is better. We've been to all the VH concerts together with Sammy and have gone together to see Dave solo live for every show.

    My point is that I have lived this argument in life, not just on the internet. Who is to say, he is not right or I'm not right. Art is in the "eye of the beholder" or in this case "ear".

    I dont see why voting for Dave or Sammy does any good. I do believe that as many say, Van Hagar was perhaps more polished and Sammy has a better "trained" voice. But I also strongly agree that Daves strong personality pushed Eddie to the cutting edge and helped him write better music. Daves voice will always to me be linked with the true Van Halen.

    If anyone ever replaced Robert Plant with Led Zepplin, they may do well, but we would always think of the REAL Led Zepplin as Plant as the real voice of Zepplin, and Jimmy Page as music.

    So if this thing goes down, with Dave or lets hope its Sammy if not Dave, its probably the last singer change. If this does not work out, Eddie will surely give solo a try.

    We all might as well embrace it as Van Halen. We all love VH or we wouldnt spend all this energy arguing the point. Lets pull for this thing, support it, and hope it rocks ass! No matter who it is.

    I dont believe Van Halen would have ever reached the national spot light they did without Roth, and I believe that Sammy helped them reach new fans and keep them on the national spotlight for years after. So both singers have succeeded.

    Hagar fans bashing Dave and Dave fans bashing the Hagar era is going to be a mute point soon and someone is going to the singer. Why should we think of it as someones going to be the loser or winner? This isnt North vs. South.

    Lighten up and wish for a quick release of a great new cd!

    Hain23x asked if I never saw Halen with Roth.

    Sorry I havent figured out how to qoute on this yet.

    Absolutely! I've seen every concert to back up every album since 1978 in which they came to North Carolina. I did boycot the 5150 tour, but then saw all other Hagar era concerts. I also refused to go to Halen with Cherone. Those aere the only two concerts I've passed on.

    I've liked all areas of VH-
    we're all winners, we all like VH, why else would we be here?
    As long as it is being discussed (debated)and not taken personal (this often happens)-there shouldn't be any problems-
    When a posts starts with:
    "My opionion is better..."-look out
    I've seen some really good stuff posted here-
    just sit back and read the posts-you can see a different point of view if you keep an open mind

    There will be a BIG problem if neither one of them is the "new" singer

    A couple of months ago when we thought Eddie had cancer I spent a lot of time listening to alot of Halen with Sam discs I don't usually listen to.
    And I came to realize it's all good because it's all Ed.
    Maybe it's just alittle better with Dave!

    I think the reason bands like Van Halen and other big name acts that did well before a new singer is because of what came before it and keeping the same band name. I think if Van halen would have changed their name in 86 with Sammy, they would have never been as successful as they were with him.
