    Default Should the Atomic Punks finish out the tour for Van Halen?

    What do you think? Would you be willing to see these guys instead of missing your upcoming Van Halen show altogether?







    Maybe DLR, Alex, and Michael Anthony could even set in with them on some of the gigs. Hey, I'd pay to see them. It would be better than sitting at home for the night.

    Nah. Fortunately, I planned ahead and saw VH several times back in the late seventies and early eighties.

    I saw 'em a week ago for 18 bucks. Great show! Lots of hot chicks at the gig.

    Wish I could have been there. It seems that they rarely play anywhere but the west coast. It would be great to get them to Saint Louis in the near future. Our Van Halen show got cancelled back in October, and it looks as though the reschedule date is going to be cancelled also. I'm sure these guys could pack a big club full of disappointed Van Halen fans.

    I'm sure that those of you who have already seen Van Halen on this tour cannot relate to the disappointment of not being able to see them. Hell, IMO the Atomic Punks sound more like 1980's Van Halen now than Van Halen does (which I'm sure some would argue). Ralph has the signature DLR scream that Dave lost many years ago.

    Same here, and if the VH show is half-assed then I want some change back!

    I saw the punks and they are spot on! LOUD! Russ plays better than Ed now anyway, so why not. Probably be better. At least we would have a better bass player that actually looks like the real dude instead of fatso up there!!

    I will go get my fire extinguisher now.......Fo...Show.....

    Russ is no longer with the band. But the new guy, Lance is pretty damn good!

    Come out to San Diego in late May and see them. Make it a vacation. I guess you could see them in L.A. too but who'd want to do that.

    Someone with the means to do so should remove this stupid thread immediately.

    And as for VanHalenRocks, how would you feel putting up this dumb ass poll, if by chance the tour may be canceled because of someones health? I would hope you'd feel like a huge ass.

    What's more important? Your $200 tickets or a man's health? I hope it's the latter...
    One noticeable difference between Judas Priest and Metallica...
    ...Judas Priest only has one gay guy in the band.
