    Default Dave talks about Van Hagar on his show

    I don't know if we're going to start a new thread everytime Dave talks about VH, but I thought this was interesting. Dave devoted the entire time I listened (7:45-8:30) this morning talking about music. Dave spent a lot of time talking about the Cream reunion and aging rockers. This led into a discussion about the Queen/Paul Rodgers tour. Dave ended up riffing on replacement singers, talking about Journey and Foreigner....which inevitably led into VH.

    Dave posed the question should VH have continued calling itself VH after he left? He talked about truth in advertsing and alluded to not being thrilled with the "one Dave, one Sammy song" format of BOBW. He mentioned that Van Hagar only sold half as many records as the CVH. A caller phoned in to claim that Dave continued to carry on the VH sound with EEAS while VH did a left turn with 5150. The caller also praised MWM and CGTSNM as examples of how VH could have continued in 1996. Upon mentioning 1996 Dave went on to say that he was only brought in to "pimp a sagging product" and then he was replaced by ...he couldn't remember the name, and the product sagged further.

    He also talked about how a singer and a guitarist have "signature sounds" that can't be replaced. He said maybe you can replace the bass player or the drummer but not the singer/guitarist. He talked about how if he heard a Hendrix song he'd never heard before, he would immed. recognize it as Jimi, or a Rod Stewart song as being sung by Rod.

    Lot more, I'm probably forgetting. Dave also had some harsh words for Paul Rodgers and was incredulous Queen were performing Bad Company songs in concert. He wrote that off as Brian may being so desperate to get out there again, he was strong armed into it. He also didn't believe Rodgers deserved equal billing with Queen.

    Overall, definitely Dave's most entertaining show yet, maybe that's because he kept the topic on music. The really annoying background music was still there though.

    At least Queen put out re-releases with extra stuff on them. At least Queen put out DVD's and such for their fans.
    I don't want to attack VH but since Freddie left Queen has done more than VH has. I guess it's just my frustration talking.
    Dave is hosting a radio morning show, while Paul Rodgers is out there in front of fans performing. Sounds like someone might be a little jealous!
    Again, I guess it's the frustration talking.
    Brian May is IN the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. Yeah, I'm frustrated...

    Freddie Mercury WAS Queen. The day Freddie died, Queen died, period. His voice and vocal arrangements can not be replaced, ever. VH should not be compared in that sense. Roth & Hagar aren't in the same league as Mercury as far as vocal ability. Brian May is not in the same league as Eddie as a guitar player..

    One thing I forgot to mention, pretty funny. They talked about who would've been a better idea for Queen than Paul Rodgers. Someone mentioned George Michael, who they all thought would've been ok. Then Dave says "does that mean they would've had to perform Wake Me Up Before You Go Go"? Then Dave says "nah, they probably would've done Smokin in the Boys Room instead."

    I personally Liked the Queen thing with Paul Rodgers. I thought he blended his style of singing on those tunes decently. Had it not been for Rodgers involvment, I wouldn't have been interested since I'm not really a Queen fan.

    That's funny!
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Queen has done more than VH has since Freddie left? Freddie left? Well he died, I guess you could call that leaving. How have they done more than VH?

    The sagging product Dave is talking about is obviously his non-existent solo career at the time. Didn't Dave tell Eddie at the time he hadn't sung for 6 months? Yep, right on top of his game.

    I think it's great that Dave has remained so humble over the years.

    It explains why he is where he is and where he ain't.

    I believe it was Dave. In any case, Dave just threw the question out there, he wasn't being critical of VH. One of his sidekicks, don't know her name yet, pointed out that VH was different from other bands in that it was also Eddie's name. Unless a caller first posed the question before I started listening, it was Dave that brought it up. He didn't make a big deal out of it though.
