    Diver Down,

    It's funny that you posted this, because I always thought the James Bond actor situation paralled the VH singer situation. Sean Connery and David Lee Roth were the originals, and in their fans eyes, their eras were the coolest and most cutting edge. Sammy Hagar and Roger Moore were the sucessful replacements. Business was still booming, but fans of the originals claimed the new formulas were too commerical. The Connery fans said the Moore era relied too much on gadgets, The Roth fans said the Hagar era relied too much on Pop Ballads. Then you have Gary Cherone and Timothy Dalton. Unsucessful third eras. Now of course Pierce Brosnan was a sucessful 4th for the Bond series. I dont think VH has that luxury. Another Connery/Roth parralell is Connery's brief return in Never Say Never Again.

    I really liked the second Dalton bond flick called License to Kill. Maybe if Gary had done a second VH album it would have been better. But Brosnan kicks ass!!! Tomorrow Never Dies fucking ruled!!!!!!!! [img]graemlins/bounce.gif[/img]
