    Gary Cherone was too nice of a guy to be in VH. Maybe if he was more of an asshole he'd have fit in better?Peace out.

    Assholes as in Badasses! Gary seemed to down to earth and way to fucking nice. He needed that DLR attitude "I'm gonna fuck your girlfriend pal". Or the EVH temper "you better be wearing a cup!". Ya know what I mean. I think the fans would have liked him better. Just my 2cents worth.Peace out.

    The only thing is, if Ed felt there was a musical chemistry between himself and Gary, then I'm sure that chemistry was based on Gary being himself, not acting like someone else. Gary had no choice but to be himself. He would have been very uncomfortable trying to swagger around like Dave. Like VH III or not (and I do like it), it is very unique among the VH albums. Great art is about taking chances. VH took a huge chance with VH III and now it's a part of history. Personally, I'm glad Gary didn't attempt to act like previous singers.

    I think if he tried to act like singers it would have been worse for him. People would be more mean then they are now.I don't think anyone should worry about it now....it won't be long until we hear,"Sonic Boom!"

    I don't think it matters much. It's how much the fans like the music. I see your point though, he was a little too quiet in interviews.

    Yeah did you see them on Matt Rock?? Eddie did 85% of the talking (and some playing), Al did 10% of the talking, Gary did like 5% of the talking and Mikey didn't say a word!

    ...cool for words.

    I met the man, and the band, and hung out with them backstage before and after the concert. Though it was only for a few hours before, and about 45 minutes after, the man is cool personified.

    End of fucking story.

    Gary sometimes has a way of being too much of an intellectual which is another reason he gets a lot of crap. Most people who listen to hard rock don't want to think about what is being said in a song. They want hard driving party tunes.

    good point panama.
    that kind of pigeonholing is what has been the downfall of the hard rock we all grew up with. it really only exists for people to make fun of nowadays.

    the pendulum has swung via grunge to this depressing crap that nobody cares about anymore. now we are left with no originality, boy bands, and britney aguilara.

    a reunited van halen has to be cool for its age. they can't be pretending they are 18 anymore or they will become a joke like the hair bands they are so often incorrectly associated with.

    we need fresh, original, van halen sounding rock with compelling lyrics. that's the only thing that will set things right again.

And he was already wearing the cup. It's just the fact that his -you know what- was so small that he needed to keep adjusting it to stay on.
