    Actually, it seems to me that there are far more Sammy (or at least Sammy in VH) haters on this site than Roth haters. In fact, let's throw it out there. Who hates Roth?
    Or, to be fair, who hates Roth's music, VH or solo?

    Not me. I like it a lot. I even love most of it. I'm just not that fanatical about it.

    Yet. (the longer we go without, the more I turn to the Roth stuff as a diversion, since I haven't listened to it as much as the Sammy stuff, so I'm not as tired of it)

    I think part of the problem is that Dave is a very confusing person. You can never tell what the hell he's talking about, and he definitely cops an attitude when talking about VH. In fact, I guess I'm not surprised at the anti-Sammy tone of some of the Army brats, since they echo what Dave has said. I believe Sammy has always maintained that VH made great music with DLR. Hey, Sammy's got an attitude too, I'm not trying to put him in a favorable light, I'm just talking about DLR's attitude. His behavior can be very irritating. But, since I don't know him, and I like what he's done with VH, I can't say I don't like him. He IS nuts, though.

    I think there are 3 factions of fans here:

    1) LOVE Dave, HATE Sammy.
    2) Love Dave, Like Sammy (my group).
    3) Like Dave, Like Sammy (maybe a casual fan).

    Nobody here hates Dave. The only hating going on around here is The Army Brats towards Sammy. That's my opinion, start the flames...

    i thinks that's an oversimplification. there are a number of groups on this site including:

    1. people lost in a 1980s time warp
    2. people who gave up the idea of having a life
    3. people who are middle aged and still play air guitar
    4. people who hallucinate about van halen releasing another album

    there are others, but thats most of em.

    I think there is a difference in perceptions here. I dont see ANY "roth haters" at this site AT ALL. How on earth could you be a member of this site and "hate" DLR??

    BUT, I also think that the way that the dlr army has progressed over time has made a mentality out of "dave or the grave", and while carrying this mentality as a "badge of honor" (which includes duties such as "sheep bashing"....thanks for that FORD), it can really wreck a persons sense of judgement when it comes to this great singer debate. Know whatta mean? This mentality carries literally ZERO tolerance for Sam era vh. So when folks try to talk about Sam vh songs that they enjoy, they get the label of sheep slapped on them. And when they are called on, or asked to explain, why they like a certain song and comparisons come in, it spells conflict. The root cause is this mentality. Its destructive. And it also puts people who enjoy both eras in a position to defend. That makes the appearance of an anti dave vibe, to the ones who are under the dave or the grave army built influence.

    You gotta go to the root. Gotta ask "why is there this perception". Gotta trace it backwards. When I do that, the above is what I see. But I could be wrong.

    Good point, Seenbad. My only point here is that I don't see anyone bashing dave (except for maybe the comb-over), but half the people here bash the hell out of Sammy. I like the Dave era better than sammy. Yes, sammy wrote/co-wrote some sappy songs, wrote sappy and stupid lyrics. But you know what? Dave left. VH had to find somebody willing to take Dave's place. Sammy had big shoes to fill and I think under the circumstances, he came in and did a pretty good job (look at how Gary did under the same pressure). I am currently listening to Live without a net mp3's that I downloaded yesterday. Let me say this, VH can rock just as hard with Sammy as with Dave, just listen to summer nights or 5150. You may not like Sammy, but a lot of us here do, so lay off.

    Seenbad has it pretty much spot on. There's a certain group that seems to think the only way to be a Dave fan is to be sucking his dick 24/7. They confuse being critical of Dave with disliking Dave. One does not go hand in hand with the other.

    There are also folks who feel the need to berate Sammy Hagar and people who enjoy him, only because they think that somehow boosts Dave's image. That's pretty fucking lame.

    Then there are those who will do lip service almost all of VH, yet the tone and content of their posts would indicate otherwise. FORD comes to mind immediately when thinking of this type of hypocrite.

    Dave isn't a god. He's a washed up rock and roll star. He's my favorite personality in music, and I wouldn't trade his CDs for gold. That doesn't mean I can't point out his problems and discuss them, though.

    Posts that over-inflate Dave or under-credit Sammy will bring that out in me. It works the other way too, although you rarely find a Sammy fan who thinks any rock and roll idol is a god.

    I think the reason for that is that Dave fans really, really wish they were like David Lee Roth. When somebody criticizes him, they feel personally attacked. Sometimes you see that with Eddie, too.
