    Default VH bit on Black Crowes blog.

    Steve Gorman, longtime drummer for the 'Crowes has a Q&A blog. The following was a recent entry.




    Hi Steve,

    I guess we’ve all been dodging this question for a long time. But sometime, someone, somewhere was always going to have to broach the dreaded question. So brace yourself, here it comes…

    Van Halen….

    Diamond Dave or Sammy Hagar?

    Which hairy vocalist is your preference?

    Before you begin wrestling with that bad boy, kudos on 20 years of cosmic freak ‘n roll, and I hope the tour and the hiatus are everything you wish them to be.

    Alistair


    Alistair

    Dave or Sammy? Come on, man, that’s a landslide. Diamond Dave by a mile.

    We met Dave back in the day, and I can assure you – he was EXACTLY what I was hoping he would be. Shithouse crazy, hilariously fun, and an absolute rock star 24/7.

    Look, I am not saying that I wanted to hang with Dave long term, and now that I think about it, there was a nasty episode once where he found himself facing a beatdown from all five member of The Black Crowes (true story) that was only staved off by bodyguard intervention (his) but still, all in all, Dave ruled.

    And, as long as we’re on the subject, it should be noted that my favorite Alex Van Halen period is what I call the “neckbrace years”. What the hell was that all about, anyway?

    To think about all the stories about Roth/Halen in their prime which we don't know.

    5 tools against Dave....I'd pick Dave. I can't stand the Black Crowes. They just sound like total hacks to me.

    plus, i think you could snap Chris Robinson like a twig...which would quickly take it down to 4 on 1...plus the way they fought amongst themselves...one or two would probably turn on the others anyways


    given that, I'd but my money on Dave just walking away and letting them beat the shit out of each other

    - probably something to that.

    i love it how the field being evened to a 5 on 2 fight was enough for the Crowes to give up on the idea.

    Miley Cyrus could beat up the Black Crowes.
    A man could lose himself in a country like this.

    It was probably 4:20, priorities man.

    I never liked the Black Crows at all, they are right up their with Counting Crows.
    I used to jog but the ice cubes kept falling out of my glass.

    Dave probably banged someone's wife from the band...5 Black Crowes against Dave, I'd put my money on Roth..those guys are about as big as kids in grade 4.

    Yuck. How did he ever hook up with Kate Hudson???
    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.

    Lol! Post of the week at least!

    The Black Crowes have some songs that I like, but I was never a big fan.

    By the way, does anyone in the Rock N Roll community ever say that they prefer Sammy? It just seems to me that the chic thing amongst rockers is to say they preferred Dave.

    There are a few dissenters, but most people think Van Halen was better when DLR was in it.

    They were more of a party band when DLR was in it, it's the original classic lineup, we could go on forever.

    Not saying Sam is better than DLR or vice versa, not trying to get into that thread killer before anyone gets upset!
    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!

    The Black Crowes are better than the Sammy version of VH. As a singer, Sammy couldn't carry Chris Robinson's mic. TBC might not have been original, but Chris brought some good soulful work. Sammy brought phony superficial sentimentally. I mean, just listen to When It's Love and then listen to something like She Talks to Angels. From a lyrical and vocal side, When It's Love fits right in with today's pop music.

    Yeah, as people they're probably tools. But so are a lot of rock stars. Most probably are.

    Yeah... Sammy.
    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney
