    Default Rage Beyond the Stage: Dave VS Sammy Uncensored (II)

    Sites apologies to Ron who was nice enough to suppy the following links to some seriously outstanding coverage of the Dave/Sam- Sam/Dave tour a few years ago. The original thread got a little stupid with the inevitable (so it seems) Dave vs. Sam BULLSHIT CHATTER (Again!!...FUCK ME!!).

    Here are the two links again. It's too good not to have up here at this site.

    Again, thanks to Ron for posting originally. Let's try it again and see if the kids can maybe stay home this time.

    All Sammy does is bitch........get over it dude......
    I can't remember which comedian said it, about the current state of Van Halen, but he said right now, Van Halen is like a really hot playboy playmate with a prosthetic leg.

    BRING BACK THE CLASSIC LINEUP!

    They both had their fair share of upmanship with the showmanship and they both looked like assholes. They also looked like rock stars and I don't think anybody expected less at any time during this little stint.

    I'm just glad this got you tubed. It was fun to watch, regardless of your Van Halen politics.

    It's because Sammy is a nice guy. He seems to be the one having to bend. Dave wouldn't budge on closing opening night. So in order for the tour to go forward, somewhat peacefully, Sam gives in. And he lets out his frustrations by talking through it, which the cameras will capture. Because talking shit about someone is probably the next best thing to a confrontation on a show like that.

    Look, I figure I come at this from a different side. I grew up in the 90's, when VH wasn't really relevant. I saw VH live once, with Gary. I loved it. I like him. The first VH album I bought was Balance, as it came out when I was in High School. The second though, was VHI.

    If you looked through my iPod, you probably wouldn't see anything much like VH in there. It's got STP, Tom Waits, Fiona Apple, U2, RATM, Coltrane, Davis, Neil Young--no other bands like VH, and it's all over the map. Both Dave and Sammy look silly onstage anymore. But I think the distinciton is this:

    Sammy is kind of like that way cool dad of one of your friends. He grows pot in the backyard, let's you drink at his house, listens to cool music, and has a fuckload of money. So you don't really notice how he dresses, and how goofy his band is. Because you are having such a great time, and his personality is killer.

    Plus, he actually continues to make new music, tour behind it, and has ventured out into a chain of bars and tequila. Really, what is so bad about that?

    Now Dave is classic. And his schtick was great. And he is pretty funny. But you start to realize it's the same old lines, the same act, the same damn songs. And really, come on--get out of the purple spandex. Dave did some great things. And if he dressed post 1984, and threw in a few new songs, and his shows were a little more off the cuff, he would be fine. But obviously, as big as his ego is, he is really, really insecure.

    Which is Sammy's exact same problem. He is probably thinking, during that whole tour, "How is this guy POSSIBLY considered more of a legend than I am? He hasn't released any new music in years, he wears fake hair and purple spandex, and won't do anything outside the box or spontaneous anymore. How rock and roll is that?" And it pisses him the fuck off.

    I am not saying Sammy's got a stellar music career at this point. But every album has a few good, memorable songs, which at least fit in somewhere in modern music. And to be honest, Sammy has probably found a GREAT spot for himself in the country/pop genre. It's perfect for him.

    Yes, the stuff shouldn't have bothered Sammy. But come on, how much of an asshole can you be? Share the fuckin' dressing rooms in LA for cock's sake!

    I can't believe after all these years there is still any debate over this. It's been so long since this band has been productive, who really cares? There out there still doing it. I think if anyone wants the real story it's Dave, Sammy and Mikey, winning over the Van Halen Bros. by forfeit.

    great clip. Even in his 74Elvis meets 2001 Space Oddesy with the scarecrow hair and the coked out banter we've heard 40000000 times, Dave still handed Sammy his ass in LA Comin' in with midgets and hot sistes? c'mon! Having Sammy runnin' around crying about dressing rooms, wanting to talk and play with Dave.

    that being said.....

    The two of them looked rediculus. Sammy's stage outfit was something I never thought I'd see a rock and roll musician wear


    and Dave, well, he had his 74Elvis meets 2001 Space Oddesy with the scarecrow hair and the coked out banter we've heard 40000000 times.
    and of course playing the same show every night the same way with the same coked out banter we've heard 40000000 times

    I'll give Sammy some props, when he's just hanging around with a camera on he seems like a pretty down to earth guy. but then again, I was having to watch him trade scenes with a guy who hasn't been down to earth since 1973.

    No wonder Van Halen broke up


    just shut up, cut your hair(which he did), put on a decent rock outfit and sing the damn songs

    Great clips
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    Yeah, it's only Sammy. Dave didn't cause any problems, didn't do anything wrong. It's just Sammy.

    I disagree. Sammy is merely attempting to bring Dave down to a little place called Earth. Maybe if Dave wasn't such an ego junkie the tour could've continued.
