    My first album was ou812, I had never heard of Roth I liked 0u812 so much I went and bought the earlier albums, I did not know they had a different singer before. I can speak of alot of people in somewhat the same scenario of Hagar turning us on to Van Halen. So sure VH with Dave has sold more but why Did the early catalogue take off selling around 1986? Hagar and VH brought new Fans in. So who is more sucessful? VH not Dave or Sam, giving sales quotes does not mean a thing! I hate when this is discussed as Roth's justification as The best frontman, its pointless given the present state of VH neither one of these guys is relevant now anyway.

    You can add rumor monger to his resume as well. For that you'd have to go to the main page where his false rumor is presently located.

    Any time a Roth VH fan talks about sales is when a hagar fan starts spouting how all the hagar albums went to no.1 and therefore sold more - they are wrong of course, and that's when we point out to them how wrong they are.

    That's the only time we ever do it - and it's not that we boast about it

    - we do boast how much better the band was with Roth in it though....

    And I suppose the reason Van HALEN gets daily radio airplay is because of Sammy too?

    next time, "Fat Lady" (Pasture Dump moderator alias) will explain how the Beatles owe all their success to the Paul McCartney/Michael Jackson duets of the 80's. Say say say what you want, but don't play games with my Van HALEN......

    Welcome back, Van HALEN!!!!

    ...It's the BAND and Dave is really the cat that can front VH. He sang his ASS off and was really cool. No cheese here guys, this is filet Mignon! - Steve Lukather's comment after witnessing a Van HALEN 2007 rehearsal
