    If all the rumors are true and Sammy does come back to the band what DLR era songs should they play when they tour?My picks would be:

    Runnin with the Devil
    Feel your love Tonight
    Dance the night Away
    Beautiful Girls
    Romeo Delight
    Mean Street
    Unchained
    Pretty Woman
    Panama

    I tried to be realistic about these chocies because we all know there are some DLR songs that Sammy WILL NOT sing .

    I doubt he'd be willing to sing that many. During his whole tenure with the band, he only sung about five Roth tunes. I doubt he'd be willing to sing six or seven on one tour.

    None. If Sam comes back then those songs are better left to memory. He does not want/like to sing them anyway. So there is no sense in him making a mockery of them anymore. On the same token if DLR were ever to come back I would pray for no Van Hagar era stuff.

    Your probably right but he`s got to swallow his pride and sing them . The band has alot of history and with the five tours they did in the US with Sammy they always played the same four Roth era songs , not including Unchained in 93 and a chopped up version of Runnin with the Devil in 88 . Look how fired up the crowds got in 98 when they pulled out the old tunes with Gary , imagine how exciting(and different) it would be with Sammy singing them . Then again on a slightly different note lets just hope the band gets back together .

    I'd rather not any if it was to happen, but I really wouldn't mind hearing the "hits" like: Jump, Panama, Unchained, and Runnin' With the Devil.

    absolutley none, he can do jump and panama easily and he butchered those by making up his own lyrics in spots. all van hagar plus 1 way to rock, heavy metal, please put away 55, he obcessed with eagles fly so that will continue. please don't ruin unchained or mean streets or d.o.a.
    Kids flip this around and it's not even an issue we wouldn't want or need any Van Hagar if DLR was back. Not a shot at Sam, who made some pretty good music with the boys, Both eras are completely different with 2 different mind sets so let's leave it that way at this point.

    in regard to 51501984, Gary did a good job on those tunes and i give him credit for that!! What else were they going to do the whole VH3 and extreme??? If you want Sammy to do classics like DOA and stop in the middle of the song and put a bra on his head and tell a weed or cabo story in the middle of a VH classic then you can have it!!!!!

    I would say rather than Classic Halen, he should stick to his era. I would much rather hear the boys play some "solo" Sammy tunes than try and play the pre Hagar Halen.

    That is just me though.
