    Default Dave's Distasterous Post VH Career

    1986--Eat Em & Smile--This album and tour was well received. Dave assembled an all star band and did a sold out arena tour.

    1988--Skyscraper--Sheenhan left the band, but still the album and tour did well.

    1991--A Lil Ain't Enough--This is where it started to go downhill for Dave. The album wasn't great and the tour ended up getting cancelled due to poor ticket sales. Extreme opened the tour and I thought they were more entertaining than Dave. Dave shows signs of hair loss and is the brunt of many jokes.

    1993--Dave is arrested in Washington Sq. Park in NYC for buying pot from an undercover cop. The media had a field day with this story making fun of Dave.

    1994--Your Filthy Little Mouth--The album completely bombs and Dave is forced to do a club tour. I hated this album for the longest time, but it has slowly grown on me over the years. His band looked like a bunch of country bumpkins.

    1995--Vegas Tour--Easily the lowlight of Dave's career. This was very early in the internet age, so I didn't really know what type of show Dave was doing. I went to the show at Foxwoods Casino in Ct. and was surprised by what I saw. Dave came out with short dark hair and a white suit accompanied by a 12 piece band. He sang a few VH songs, but mostly played songs you never thought Dave would play. (ie: Boz Scaggs and James Brown to name a few) A lot of people at the show weren't happy as I spoke to people in the beer line during the show. Dave had some good one liners that night, but it was mostly very lame.

    1996--VH Reunion and Mtv Awards--We all know what happened here. No need to review this disaster.

    1997--Crazy From The Heat--Dave publishes a book. I read the book and it sucked. It just rambles on and on about nonsense. The only good chapter is where he gives his side of what happened during the botched 1996 reunion.

    1998--DLR Band--Dave returns to his roots with a hard rocking album. Unfortunately the album bombs and generates little interest.

    1999--Tours w/ Bad Company--Dave opens for Bad Company and was on fire this night. Of all the times I saw Dave, this was my favorite show. No surfboards and boxing rings, just Dave and his band kicking ass.

    2000--Another Botched Reunion--Dave records some songs with VH. The VH brothers don't like the way the process is going and refuse to return Dave's calls.

    2002--Sam and Dave Tour--This tour received a lot of attention from the media and was successful. Sammy was much better at the show I saw. It's a shame that Dave refused to perform with Sammy at any of the shows. That would of been awesome. I believe Dave didn't want to duet with Sammy because it would of showed how much better a singer Sammy is.

    2003--Diamond Dave--Dave releases an album full of mostly covers. The album bombs and only sells 10,000 copies. I didn't even bother buying it. Dave does another club tour.

    2005--Radio Job--Dave gets hired to take over 6 markets when Stern goes to Sirius Satellite Radio. Dave was a frequent guest on Stern's show and was always hilarious. I thought if anyone could be successful at morning radio, it would be Dave. I was wrong. Dave was absolutely awful. He was canned after four months.

    2007--Dave rejoins VH and is back on top after a long freefall.

    Compare what you have accomplished in your life to what Dave has accomplished and then try not to jump off of a cliff.

    I think it's funny how people point his solo career was a loss. Coming from Van Halen, anything he would have done would have seemed less than successful.

    As good as Van Halen had it with Sammy, and they did, they didn't reach the plateau they set for themselves as they did with Dave.

    Van Hagar was a great band - huge. Extremely popular. Van Halen though was/is a monster. . . massive . . . . commanding . . . . pace setting . . . enveloping . . . sonic . . . paramount.

    That's what I'm saying.

    Van Halen with Sammy was great! I think songs like Humans Being, 5150, Cabo Wabo and countless others were great!

    But when I listen to Van Halen with Dave on vocals I get chills down my spine! Happens every time I listen to Unchained or anything off of Fair Warning.
