    Default Best of the Bluegrass sessions.

    This blows that crappy jump thing out of the water. It is very cool and his voices sounds damn damn good.

    Very cool version of Dance the Night Away.

    I will say that Dave sounds better doing these tunes than he has in years...and I really mean that. He's actually singing...and frankly, I would love to see a CVH reunion. I have a history of bashing Dave's singing live...and he's really doing the bluegrass thing with a lot of effort, and I commend him for it.

    I want so badly to agree with you. Don't get me wrong, if it happens, I'm buying a ticket. But one of the very few skills I have is finding perspective. And the perspective on this bluegrass thing is, it's not very good.

    Let's pretend the year is 1984 and we're watching the Panama video on MTV. With a poof of smoke a genie appears and says, "Boys, how would you like to jump ahead in time 22 years and see David Lee Roth?"

    Sure as shit, brother!

    So, we go and we hear Jump and Panama being played by violins and banjos, and David Lee out front singing with a voice that's half as potent as it was (at best).

    "David Lee Roth is no longer the singer of Van Halen," the genie says.

    My reaction, honestly, is thank goodness. What's yours?

    Actually, that wasn't half-bad, and certainly better than that damn Jump version. Still, the stream of consciousness rap midway through was a little out there, but definitely Dave-ish.

    Has it been confirmed for sure that the summer tour is going to be entirely bluegrass sets?

    Default Thumbs down

    I am a fan of solo Dave. My collection includes everything up to, but not including, the "Diamond Dave" cd. I was hoping that if he were to record again, that he would go back to R&R. These TV appearances have turned me off to seeing him live this summer. There is just no point. His obsession with playing an all VH setlist is annoying. And this bluegrass thing is just further deterioration of his talent. Playing on your own tribute album? I think it's pathetic. I went on Amazon last night to see if all of these appearances have done anything. Uh.....the album is #766 in music. Dave, unfortuanately, it is over pal. Your only hope "is" to pimp a reunion. BTW, I am not happy with this. I'd love to have the opposite reaction about Dave's current project. If some of you guys like it, I'm happy for you.
    What are your major influences?

    much better than "jump" and "panama" that I've seen from this thing.


    but I agree.. who plays on their own tribute album?(oh yeah, Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley's silly asses )

    20 + years later and Dave STILL can't get the lyrics to this song right

    "come on! take a chance...."
