    Her Roth Army!

    All you DLR-purists, I'm curious:
    What are your favorite (or least hated) Van Halen songs from '86-'95?
    Don't regret the rules I broke
    when I die

    Why even bother talking to the Roth Army?

    They are incapable of believing that there was a Van Halen without DLR.

    I'm gonna say this now just to get it out there....Dave only had 2 note-worthy albums after VH...after that....he was virtually non-existent....Roth-tards may say what they want about "Sam the Sham" and the Ched Rocker and Ham Sammy...at least he can earn and stay fairly current without VH...he proved it once...and he is proving it again.....when I say fairly current...I mean making music and not playing the same set for the last 12 summers....

    Dave should pray every night that this tour doesn't fall apart because if it does.....he's finished...that's why I think they and him (Dave) are trying SOO hard....

    I know...I know....flame me now (which seems to be the phrase of choice these days...)...but that is the truth....you know it...and I know it.....

    so...OU812Max and all the others......In my best Jigsaw voice...."Let the game...begin..."

    Without Dave leaving, Hagar would be touring state fairs singing I Can't Drive 55. Sam should be thanking Dave every day of his life for leaving.

    And when Sammy joined the band, Dave hit the state fair circuit. Strange world eh?

    And without VH Dave would be playing in Redball Jet with their gay keyboard player and trumpet player in some gay bar in Pasadena, California...Sammy was a solo artist WAY before Dave and VH hit it big....As I was saying was that Sammy hasn't struggled as a solo artist like Dave has...and they were BOTH in VH....

    let's be fair, when dave first went solo he was huge playing the same venues vh is playing now! when sammy went back to solo he played small venues and that was coming off the great success he had with vh. let's see where sammy is in a couple of years. one thing i must say is dave made his own bed so he got stuck sleeping in it. his original band when he first went solo was fucking awesome and he managed to piss them all off and thats when things went to the shits for him. sammy's band has always been shit and knowing that his concerts where not going to sell all that well he convinced mike to come on tour with him mainly for his own selfish reasons and fucked his supposed good buddy in the process. i think them showing up to the rrhf ceremony solidified there "other half" status and know they will remain that until they have to play in front of 50 people a night and finally pack it in.

    i do like mike, but it is obviuos he is not the smartest guy in the world when it comes down to business. one vh tour would bring in the $$$ it would take 6 hagar tours and he basically says that when he continues his "it's not like i need the money" rant.

    in closing i look at it like this, mikey is basically too good, ed is a bit of a prick and sammy is a two faced motherfucker that would say anything to anyone to make a buck.

    It's true, Dave was huge right after splitting from Van Halen. I've always thought he could've maintained a lot of that momentum if he'd been able to:

    1) Keep his original band together
    2) Shed the glitziness of his act when it abruptly went out of style
    and
    3) Kept to playing straight-on rock and roll, which he does really well

    Sam was a success solo before and after VH. I think relatively speaking, they've all done well with their careers.

    I don't know if I qualify as a Roth-purist, but I enjoyed the original band's music more than I did the Sam stuff. I liked the Sam stuff, I just liked the original 6-pack better.

    So to answer the original question...I won't pluck out individual songs, but I liked F.U.C.K. and Balance the best out of the Sam era albums.
