    Although this dude is pretty fuckin negative... He does bring up a point. This is a greatest hits tour. NOTHING new. I had a GREAT time, but it didn't fire me up too much. I have seen both of these shows before. Roth did a great rendition of early VH. Sammy put on a great show that was fun too. I have been to a TON of new concerts. I am not going to mention who because they will be bashed. They have twice the energy of this show. WHY? They are offering something new to a young crowd hungry for it.

    The question is.... who can come out and write great NEW music with VH. The last two decent NEW things I have heard out of anyone associated with VH is LET SALLY DRIVE and the guitar work in BALANCE. The solo in DON'T TELL ME is sick as fuck.

    Can Dave come back and write some killer tunes? I doubt it. He could put on a great reunion show, but so what. [img]graemlins/sleep.gif[/img] When was the last time Dave wrote something new that rocked?

    Can Sam come back and write some killer tunes? I don't know... but i hope so. If not, Ed and Al might as well sit on the mountain and shake their heads. Remember, Ed is a musician, not a party boy. He wants to blow us away with something new. If he can't do that... why should he bother? peace out.

    Dave came back to VH in '96 and pumped out Me Wise Magic & Can't Get This Stuff No More, and you're skeptical if he can write any good new music with VH?

    Pretty tough room, but I'd go back & give those songs a listen.....most folks would agree that they're stellar. They just got buried quickly after the BOV1 came out because they threw Cherone into the spotlight.

    In my opinion, Sammy's best album after VH was Marching to Mars. He was pissed off @ Eddie & it came thru in some stellar music (Little White Lie, On the Other Hand, etc). It was written almost in a similar fashion as Fair Warning, some might argue, as that album was recorded with extremely high tensions running in VH @ the time, and again, stellar music.
    A fair number of Sammy's recent tunes are somewhat uninspired, I think. Mas Tequila is a rehash of Gary Glitter's "Rock & Roll revisited/part 2 (whatever)", and I hear some of his new songs sounding like some of his older stuff. I'm still a fan of his, but that's just the way I see it & feel when I listen to his music.
    He wrote some great stuff with Van Halen, he's written great stuff solo, but if you're asking which one can come back to VH & write good tunes, I think the nod has to go to the Diamond one, dude.
    Q: Recording the album took so long your Australian tour last year was cancelled. What was it like in the studio? There's a history of tension between you and Eddie Van Halen...

    DLR: It was like a stand off in a Chuck Norris movie. We each had the laser dot on everybody's forehead waiting for the other guy to blink. Except for Wolfie, he had a Super Soaker ...

    Around '96, not counting the "three astonishing tunes" he wrote last year.

    Dave and Ed together are a whole different animal, and I gotta believe that if the reunion ever came to pass, the new stuff would just shit all over everything they've done by themselves.

    I understand what you're saying about the nostalgia show, though, but I also think that if it came down to a Dave-fronted VH, you'd have the greatest hits PLUS the new shit to blow everyone away with. If Dave and Sam can pull off a tour, then it's gotta be possible for Dave and Ed to share a stage, too.

    After seeing and enjoying this tour I can see and understand why there will never be a VH reunion.
