    crank up his setlist. I've seen him twice solo since the VH breakup, and he has chosen to play only a handful of Halen tunes. "Top of the World", "Finish", "WCTBL", "Dreams" and "Right Now" are the only ones I've seen documented. With Dave likely to bring the house down with almost an EXCLUSIVE VH catalogue, I think Ole Sam with have Vic and Mona crankin' out some new stuff. He'll be pressured to.

    "Poundcake", "Summer Nights", "Best of Both Worlds", and "Don't Tell Me" are a few I can think of that need to be dusted off. But Sam's voice a'int what it used to be. He can't rip these tunes off like the ole days. I remember "Dreams" on the Balance tour. He and Mikey alternated the "Higher!"s, and he sung a majority of the song real low. I think the acoustic version of "Right Now" was another example of playing it safe, as was "Finish" being almost totally acoustic until the end. On the last tour, Mona and Jessee Harms both sang a verse in "Heavy Metal". Sam passes it off as playing around, but I think he's conserving his voice.

    Cracnk it up Sam! Let's hear the heavy shit!

    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

    Let's face it, neither Dave nor Sam's voices are what they used to be. Personally I'd rather hear them conserve their voices a bit rather than try to go too high and sound like their balls are in a vise.
    "There's a Japanese term called wabi-sabi, not wasabi, but wabi-sabi. It means an appreciation for the imperfect, the less than precision. The cowboy boots that you never polish because it's bad luck. That is completely wabi-sabi. Van Halen is that." - DLR 2002<br /><br />"Look! I can see their parachutes! They're ok..." - Tenshinhan, DragonBall Z
