    Default Post VH-Should Sammy have any CVH involvement?

    Lets get an idea of where the Links community stands...I know this is Pro-Sammy country but I am curious none the less!

    If Sammy wants to do a cover from one of my favorite bands, why would I complain?

    Oh no. punk, you shouldn't done this. This isn't a pro anything site. I agree with you on this one. Mike is going to do the singing next year on the tour for the CVH and I still don't think they should go there, but the rest of the fans want it. So WTF. Don't go to the show dude. I'm not.

    I voted for the "are you serious?", but I think that as long as Mikey is there, it's fine. As far as I'm concerned, as long as there is one CVH member present, there is validity no matter who sings it. I don't know for a fact that Sam sings CVH without Mikey, but if he does, not only does it not have validity, but it really doesn't have any point. I have yet to hear Sammy do a CVH song that really impresses me. Then again, the US festival video I have with Dave does the same thing.

    Bottom line: Sammy, we only want to hear CVH with Mikey vocals and/or Eddie's guitar. He can play ALL of the Van Hagar items he likes, because he obviously pulls those off well...as well he should.

    Then again, any VH is better than none, right?

    I just contradicted myself
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    It's a moot point and a stupid poll. Sammy isn't doing the CVH, Mike is. Apparently it's cool if Mike wants to sing the classics in any setting unless Sammy is in close proximity, in which case it's apparently not cool. APR's just unwilling to make the distinction, probably only for pot-stirring's sake, despite the fact he jumped for joy and cheered like a little teenaged girl 13 times last year when Sammy sang Unchained.

    Then why is tha band the other half? [/QUOTE]

    If Sammy is not involved in the songs, the it would have to be called "The "Other Half, featuring "The Other Quarter." Someone didn't do well in math class. (this not to mention that any of the other players were not in VH, but hey whos counting)

    Apparently it's cool if Mike wants to sing the classics in any setting unless Sammy is in close proximity, in which case it's apparently not cool.
    Thats right...just by throwing, what now appears to be 3 bands on a concert bil,l that have essentailly all the same members, does not excuse this blasphemy.

    APR's just unwilling to make the distinction, probably only for pot-stirring's sake
    Now who is making all the assumptions, you're all knowing eh?

    despite the fact he jumped for joy and cheered like a little teenaged girl 13 times last year when Sammy sang Unchained.
    Don't hate me because I was watching Ed shred Unchained, while you were trying to figure out how to get the electric turned back on in your trailer.

    And this site is slightly Pro-Hagar, but I don't see that as a bad thing. Its obvious that the Dave or the Graver sites have their slant.

    LOL, oh my, have you seen junior's grades?

    It's probably called 'The Other Half' because in addition to Mikey singing classic Roth songs, Sammy also sings classic Van Hagar songs. Man, this is really stretchin' for ya, ain't it. Best not check out any quantum theory in the near future...your head might explode.

    Kiddies whose first exposure to live Van Halen was the III tour? Their opinions on what constitutes blasphemy are suspect. Sorry punkin.

    Also, all of you replying should note...last year, our little dickens APR here was on FIRE for Sammy! So don't let his hate mail faze ya too much...he's just another fair weather Van Halen fan who, as you've seen in various threads, needs to haze the band when they're not active as a unit.

    I guess it's a better way to pass the time than sticking his johnson in the nearest wall outlet. But only just.

    Interesting post...Are you saying Van Halen was never Van Halen with SH in it? Since you said "cover from one of my favorite bands"??? Interesting...or do you mean like I don't care, play away?

    I am curious what songs MA is even gonna attempt anyway. It could be a trainwreck. I guess we will see.

    Maybe we'll see that in the break of the newest song with subliminal mapquest directions to Cabo.

    Dude if Sammy has no participation in this set, then cool, let MA sing away. Again I am not so sure what he will play or how good it will sound. Running with theDevil in Philly was mindblowingly bad.

    Again for someone that accuses people of being a know it all, you sure do know it all.

    Maybe You should read 1. in the post that says I don't hate Sammy. DUH! Fucking read!(do i really need to link it?) Again envy is a sin.

    Can no one criticize this band, let alone the King of Tequila? Step back from the shrine dude...

    Aw, heck. This is no fun. What's the use in heckling the kid who doesn't get it? Where the heck is Catfish? Or Seshbunny? Or Denny? At least they put up some moxy.

    You go right ahead and keep playing in your sandbox, junior. I'll leave you to it.

    And for the record, I never said you were a know-it-all. I hinted that you may be a know-nothing.

    What I mean is this: Sammy didn't write those songs and Sammy didn't record those songs. He's interpreting them, no differently than he'd do with any other cover. He's been doing that for almost 20 years. You've gotten used to it.

    If anybody wants to get huffy because some guy is playing old VH, that's their problem. There are far, far better things to be concerned with. It's a pretty pointless thread.

    If you want it to have any value, you've got to turn the first six albums (including their covers...) into some sort of holy object that nobody can play. Not Sammy, not some jackass on karaoke night, not tribute bands, not cover bands, and most of all not the original four members of Van Halen--they'd butcher them as badly as any of the others at this point.
