    Let's face it if you don't approve of Sam in being in the band you're no Van Halen fan. The guys that just sit around and worship DLR, that's fine, but to rip on Sam means you're no Van Halen fan. You're a DLR fan, nothing more.

    Mods, lock it if you must, just frusturated.

    Let's face it if you don't approve of Dave in being in the band you're no Van Halen fan. The guys that just sit around and worship Sam, that's fine, but to rip on Dave means you're no Van Halen fan. You're a Sam fan, nothing more.

    There is no different here. There are those on this site that rag on Dave and those that rag on Sam. The only differente I see is that the Sammy lovers cry and moan and bitch every time anyone says anything about Sam AND at the same time they are rippind Dave a new asshole and crying the whole time.

    Here is the bottom line:
    There are people that are solely Sam era VH fans and there are people that are solely Roth fans. JUST because a person likes one era more than the other does not mean that they are not Van Halen fans. This debate will never end.

    I am a Roth era fan myself. I think both entertainers did a great job last year. I, however, have lost a little respect for both of them for different reasons.

    Take Roth for example first since I am going to be considered a Rothtard anyway this turns out. The "Vagina monologues" statement was completely uncalled for. Gary did not belong in VH and he admitted it and left the band. Roth had no right to say that. Dave's jacking off with JD got old as well. This man IS talented whether you guys want to admit it or not, but that being said, he really needs to prove it again because even I am getting tired of him and his antics.

    Sam is next. When you are insecure, you talk badly about other people. Sam, get a clue, Dave does not like you and he has that right. It isn't like Dave said something negative about Sam every interview he did now is it? Sam went on the offensive from the start and has not let up since. So fucking what if Dave did not want to sing a duet with Sam. Sam picked out a few things he could talk shit on Dave and has not stopped crying like a bitch in heat since. Shut the fuck up already. Dave did mouth off a few times on the tour, but absolutely nothing like Sam. I mean really, all of you Sam fans, I respect that you like the guy, but can you not admit that he has gone on and on and on and on and on and on and on just a bit too much?

    Yes, we are all frustrated at the VH saga!

    Yeah i am surprised by Sammy's behavior. Yes he does rip on dave a lot....NOW! Maybe this makes up for when he never said a word for 10 years when he was in the band, while roth was ripping him non-stop. But when Roth rips him on stage, screw that and screw him.

    Now now, I remember reading where Ed and Al had to take Sam aside at several times during the early Van HAGAR days because Sam was relentlessly talking complete shit about Dave at concerts, interviews, everywhere, and tell him to cool it. Anyone else out there remmeber this? Help me out!

    I have to agree that Sam has been out of line several times. I prefer him w/ the band, but some of his statements have been out to lunch bud.

    I think Executioner is being objective in saying the same about Dave.

    Let's all just hope we hear something from somewhere sometime [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Oh yeah, I remember it all right--Sam refused to sing Jump--weren't random people or celebrities picked to sing Jump on the 5150 tour?

    Is there even a boot from that tour that has him singing it?

    Let's make a distinction here. The way I see it (throwing Gary out for simplicity), there are a number of groups fans can fall into.

    1. Love Roth VH, refuse to listen to anything Sammy.

    2. Love Roth VH, will listen to Sammy but don't prefer it.

    3. Love all VH equally.

    4. Love Sammy VH, will listen to Roth but don't prefer it.

    5. Love Sammy VH, refuse to listen to anything Roth.

    It occurrs to me that groups 1 and 5 aren't actually Van Halen fans, just fans of a particular singer. People who fall into 2-4 (as I'm sure most of us do) are VH fans, even though their biased spin towards a single singer may get them labeled as something other than a "true fan" from time to time.

    Basically the VH fanbase has been splintered into three factions: Pro-Roth, Pro-Sammy, and Pro-Eddie. Each group has members with different degrees of fanaticism, but Those Pro-Singer tend to side with their singer much more often while those Pro-Eddie seem to be of the, "I'll listen to Van Halen even if Barney the Dinosaur sings!" group.

    all those examples are Van Halen fans. just because someone doesn't choose to accept whatever Ed wants to offer up as VH doesn't make anyone less of a fan...
