    1. The "Sammy vs. Dave" argument is old. In fact, it's a lot like the "my dad can beat up your dad" argument that 2nd-graders have.

    2. Dave is a good singer and a great entertainer.

    3. Sammy is a great singer and a good entertainer.

    4. Both eras of Van Halen sold MILLIONS of albums.

    5. Both eras of Van Halen sold out concerts around the world, for years and years.

    6. Edward Van Halen is one of the greatest musicians to ever walk the face of the earth.

    7. Van Halen has entertained us - the fans - for well over 20 years, giving us 13 albums of kick-ass music, thousands of incredible concerts and shitloads of great memories that will last the rest of our lives.

    8. Van Halen doesn't owe us a damn thing. I rarely post here, but I browse all the time, and I'm continually amazed at the pessimism. I hope like hell that some form of Van Halen gives us new music in the future. But, if they don't, I'm just thankful that they've already given us so much since 1978. If we never hear another new song from the band again, I consider myself lucky just to have been a part of it.

    Fuck the debate - sit back, relax and enjoy some of the greatest music ever recorded.

    Couldn't have said it any better myself.

    Although, the Sammy vs Dave debate does make for good discussions. Kind of like the Celtics-Lakers comparisons in the 1980's.

    I AGREE WITH YOU, COMPLETELY.

    YOU ARE CORRECT, THEY DON'T OWE US ANYTHING.

    WE MUST HAVE RESPECT FOR THEIR PERSONAL AND PROFESIONAL LIVES.

    I don't think that's the point at all [img]graemlins/wtf.gif[/img] </font>[/QUOTE]No, it's not the point. The point is that sometimes we can't see the forest for the trees.

    In other words, stop and smell the roses. Van Halen - in its many incarnations - is a great band. This is a kick-ass site. I love reading the actual reviews of shows, hearing the stories of people meeting VH and reading the rumors about the band's next move.

    It just amazes me that 13 great albums, thousands of concerts and a lifetime of great memories apparently isn't enough for some people.

    Sure, the debate over Sammy and Dave is fun at times, but they ain't gonna be touring forever. How about just enjoying the kick-ass show both of them put on instead of bitching about Sammy promoting his tequila and Dave jerking-off with a bottle of JD.

    And, yes, it's frustrating that we haven't heard a peep from Van Halen in almost three years. But given that Edward has apparently been fighting to save both his life and his marriage, I think the least we can do is be patient. In his world, the next Van Halen album may not be very high on the list of priorities - and who are we to get pissed off about that?

    We are FANS. A simple answer is THE ONLY ANSWER!!
    Paul did it in his liner notes.
    Plant said he would not go on without his friend.
    Roger and Pete said officially "the tour will go on as planned".
    Even the Manhattan Project was less secretive. Let's just hope that Ed/Al don't drop a 'bomb', whatever form it may come in. [img]graemlins/scared.gif[/img]
