    Did The Roth/Hagar Tour of 2002 change anyone's opinion of Sam or Dave??

    Did it change anyone's mind, be they fantatic, casual, or new fan??

    No. It pretty much solidified it.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    Personally, I've never cared for either's solo career. I've never owned one Sam solo record, I had a cassette of EEAS 20 years ago but that's about it for Dave. I would probably not go see either one alone unless the tickets were cheap, but taken together I decided to go. I had a good idea of how the show would run because I had lurked here and read the reviews.

    Sam started off first. I really didn't get into much of his solo material and was a little annoyed by the "beach party" vibe. The highlight of the entire night was Mikey coming out and doing some VH songs. I had seen VH with Sam many times so they were all songs I'd heard live before, but it was great none the less. Although I don't care much for Sam solo, I give him tremendous credit for having a diverse set list, including songs from his whole career. I really felt like I was seeing a sloo show by Sammy Hagar.

    Dave come on next. I had never seen Dave before with or without VH. I was pretty excited to see him and looking forward to a setlist I knew would include gems like DOA and Meanstreet that I'd never seen live before. First let me say that I was impressed by Dave's voice. Maybe I caught a good show, but I thought he sounded fine, and his band sounded great. Unfortunately by about the third song I felt something was wrong. Dave seemed like he was playing the rock star just a bit too much and some of his lines were just embarassing. The lowlight of the night was when his guitarist played Eruption, that really pissed me off. After the set I thought I had just seen the world's greatest VH tribute band.

    Overall on the way home, I just started missing VH a lot and wondered what Eddie was up to. I just wished that VH would rise back up and reunite with Dave or Sam.

    I did not see the show because something with work came up. However my best friend did and I will use his comments.

    At that time, he liked the Sammy era VH better than Roth. He owned all the albums but he liked Sam better.

    However after seeing the show, he thought Dave's show was the better one. Granted it was the first show of the tour (in Cleveland) so Dave's voice was probably the best of all the shows.

    He just thought the older songs had much more energy then the Sam songs. Plus Sam played the same old VH songs where Dave was pulling out Mean Streets, Running with the Devil, etc. He never got to hear VH do them so he really dug it.

    I ended up sitting second row here in St. Louis and DLR opened for Hagar. I came in a total Roth-era nut with little enjoyment for the Sammy stuff (the Dave stuff is more timeless I guess).

    However, when I saw DLR, I was completely disappointed. He acted like a shmuck and really didn't look great. In fact, he looked terrible. Sammy on the other hand seemed very cool (sometimes he tries a bit too hard though), and looked better as well as sounded better.

    Basically, I still like the Dave era more, but I respected Sammy enough to give him a chance this last go around. I still think he's a bit cheesy sometimes (but if Dave we on the last tour, I would have been cheesed out of the building), but he sounded great.

    Oh my god....I just participated and fueled to a Sam vs. Dave thread....I'm not sure whether this is a sad or beautiful moment in my years of being a linker.....I'm so confused
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    I was pleasantly surprised by Dave's performance. I thought he sounded really good and put on a great show. I wasn't sure what I was going to see based on all the Dave bashers on here, but I left wondering why I couldn't have my whole Van Halen back together again for one night.

    Sammy was the same, but on his own he had the freedom to indulge in more of the BS on stage with the tequila and everything. He sounded good, but I'm just not into Hagar. We left after the first couple of songs because we wanted to go out and listen to classic Van Halen.
    Could this be magic?
