    Default RWTD Sammy style...

    I'm all about RWTD. It is my favorite song by the group. I found this and gave it a listen.

    Sammy singing RWTD....vid doesn't match, but it's Sam on vox, not Mike.
    A little more volume in the headphones please.

    There's just no dispute, Mike is the best backup for the VH stuff. This isn't a knock for Wolfy. I think Wolf sounds great. But I get goosebumps when I hear Mike.

    Of course Mikey is better! He recorded the song...Wolfie didn't

    I just like at the beginning of the video where you hear a guy in the audience say Running with the Devil in a pleasantly surprised voice....

    Perfect example of Sammy giving putting effort into a DLR song, compared to say in 2004, when he was just barely singing the DLR stuff.

    I just don't like the "all I have I had to steal" in that clip.

    Not bad at all... Makes me wonder how many other DLR songs are out there during the Hagar years. I have to agree about the 2004 statements--he seemed rather disinterested. Or maybe it was the Smoking Loon...

    Makes me think about something I've been missing lately--them doing cover songs in the "old days" which made bootlegs more collectible than it does today. They either did them as a stand-alone song, or incorporated into a VH song.

    I guess that's why we call them the good old days...

    Thanks for sharing, InTheBeginning!

    I see. But not having mike only dimishes my desire to go by 25%. People who let their desire diminish 100% put too much weight in what Mikey brings into the mix.

    yeah yeah... and sammy's guitarist does summer nights better than eddie.

    Mikey does mikey better and what's his name does eddie better than eddie. go figure.
    If eddie were down and out on a sidewalk playing guitar I'd be next to him with a bottle and a blanky braving the cold. I would be sucking my thumb happily making chupa chupa noises in sync with the petroglyphic sounds that came from the mighty finger tips of Edward Van Halen.

    This is proof positive that for some reason Sam just doesn't sound right singing the old stuff. He is putting forth a valid effort and no one can deny the man has a great set of pipes.

    They can cover the Who and it sounds like it is their own song; they play one of their own songs and it doesn't really sound that good. I'm not explaining it well, but hopefully everyone gets what I am trying to say!
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

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

    Preferred pronouns: he/him/his
