    Default Roth v. Hagar: Here's Your Chance...

    Everyone knows the Roth v. Hagar debate has gone on around here for years. Countless threads have been degraded into oblivion and closed because of it.

    Well, now here's your chance to make your case to a neutral third party to explain which era you thought was better and why.

    www.musictap.net is hosting a debate on the topic starting on Friday the 13th of June. Prepare your case, collect your evidence, & dust off your "3 Piece", cause you're up Counselor!! The fates of Van Halen & Van Hagar rests in your hands.

    To play, just send an email to tapstuff@musictap.net explaining what you think Van Halen's peak album was and why and then check back on musictap.net for the results. Not that it's going to be groundbreaking or anything like that, but hey, it's a website asking us to do what we do best... fight & argue about Van Halen... so how could I resist giving you all the chance to join in?

    Enjoy!

    Roth / Hagar

    So I said,"hey, Lama! What about a little something for the effort"?

    And he said " On your death bed, you will receive total consciousness"

    "so, i've got that going for me..."

    A few months ago, a fellow posted here asking for people to contribute their opinions for a term paper or thesis he was creating, using the Roth/Hagar debate as it's subject. Anyone ever hear how that worked out for him?

    Finally!

    A chance to discuss Roth vs. Hagar. For four years I've been waiting for someone to bring this up!

    Isn't 23 years of this debate enough? They really can drag out a topic. It's over, it no longer matters, people have their own likes and dislikes about the band so let's get past this once and for all!

    Shees!

    I did email him. He is more concerned with what is our fave album, and then for a bonus he asked to chime in on the lead singers.

    Fave album = FUCK
    Fave singer = Sammy

    I don't think you can compare who was better Dave, or Sammy. They both gave us great music, with great songs that made each era what it was. Without both, we'd have never had all the great music that we have now.

    Dave is and always will be my favorite frontman, because he's so entertaining, but I love Sammy too.
