    That's so fucking cool!

    I'll be the first (and propably last) one to say that it's a shame that this lineup never even had a chance.

    I remember seeing this a couple of months ago, lucky guy, maybe he is here on the links.

    You can tell on the video that they needed a REAL frontman, Gary seems like another guest, if Dave or Sammy would have been there, it would have been a lot more fun to be there, they lacked of a leader.
    "I could call it anything, but the only word I can think of is Brown. It's just a warm sound. Warm, big, majestic" - Eddie Van Halen on his Tone

    "Van Halen is definitely a ladies band, and I´ve got the Polaroids to prove it". - David Lee Roth

    WOLFGANG did the IMPOSSIBLE, he brought back VAN HALEN, DEAL WITH IT.

    True, but that's the reason he got the job. No LSD!

    I am the biggest fan of Van Halen 3 and just loved everything about it. However, the reason stated above has to be the soundest reason that Gary wouldnt have worked (long-term) as the lead singer.

    He led them on stage, anyone who has seen any of the '3' shows cant deny that. But in interviews and off-stage he just seemed to slip away into the background.

    Being lead singer for the greatest rock and roll band of all time demands some attitude. He was just too placid.

    On another note I have to agree, that kid was slick, I wonder if he want into PR? If I met Eddie I would probably just become incoherant and say something like 'you rule Eddie'

    (then again maybe they did a hundred takes?)

    It's still one of my favorite tours. I would have liked to hear atleast one more album from them.

    I agree with what you're saying, but in addition to Gary's personality not being the "frontman" type, I'll bet he also went into the deal thinking, hey, these guys hate Dave and Sammy because they were leaders with attitudes. I'm just gonna go along and get along.

    In other words, he might have been keeping any attitude in check to help preserve his job.

    It's just my guess, though. I could be totally wrong.

    Yeah from what I've seen, they were great live. The band was better than ever and Gary wasn't bad. A second album would have no doubt been much better than the first, but I don't even hate 3 as much as most.
