    In the "Scene" section of today's Denver Post (originally the article was written for the CA Orange County Register) is an article titled "Role replacement a chancy thing in the movies, TV". Basically, the article was about various roles that have been played by multiple actors (examples: Keaton, Kilmer, then Clooney as Batman; the various actors who have played James Bond (007) over the years, etc.) and which was better... the original or replacement(s).

    Anyway, I was suprised to see pictures of DLR and Sammy included with the article... since they are not actors. Well, the writer apparently decided to include the multiple singers of VH in the article and evaluate who was best. The verdict? Suprisingly... "do you really care?"

    First, I was pissed at "do you really care". As a VH fan, I find this "conclusion" insulting. I then was inclined to write it off as the writer is obviously an idiot and knows little about the band and it's history (he indicated Roth was involved in 7 albums and Sammy in only 3... oops)

    But upon thinking further, I kinda see this "who cares about VH" point of view as a result of the time that has passed since the last album was released as well as the lead-singer changes the band has made (and the "reasons" for those changes) over the years. I think this will become more problamatic, if not a problem for the band already, if they wait too much longer to release the next album. Hopefully the latest rumors are true... and that we'll see an album later this year. The longer they wait to release, the less interest there will be... except of course for us diehard VH Forums posters who will be beating down the door to buy the album when finally released.

    Obviously this reporter has little or no musically taste what-so-ever!! He probably thinks the Culture Club was the LED ZEP of the eighties. What a smuck!! I can think of nothing worse, irresponsible, or dangerous than a reporter who does not do his homework when writing an article. Well, I have one thing to say to this so-called reporter: FUCK YOU!!! Go listen to your Thompson Twins collection!

    I agree with something Van Gully said. I don't really care too much if someone doesn't like Van Halen and wants to print it, but get your facts straight at least. I don't know how many times I've read stuff with inaccuracies that are just due to poor research. I've read things like "Dave left Van Halen and then did Crazy From the Heat", stuff like that. Or in this case getting the album counts wrong for each singer.

    Say what you want, but do the basic research.

    The tone of the "Who Cares" matters.

    The implied tone I got was that he was saying, "Who gives a damn about Van Halen anyway?"

    If he had meant, "Who gives a damn which of the singers is singing, all the music ROCKS!" that would be different. But then again, he wouldn't have made a fool of himself in print that way.

    I think the message was "who gives a rat's ass" about Van Halen.

    If that's the attitude, why bother to include them in the article at all... particularly when it was about actors (and not musicians) to begin with?

    Again, as a VH fan, I'm insulted... but also concerned. Given the history with the lead singer changes (and with DLR and Sammy both it was a soap opera like "he said, she said" situation) and the long wait for the next release are they alienating fans/turning fans off?

    Don't get me wrong, I'm as big of a VH fan as the rest of you, otherwise I wouldn't bother to post. I'm not passing judgement... just concern.

    Out!

    I don't worry too much about what writers or even music critics write abot VH. In Chicago we have a guy(Jim DeRogta or something like that) who writes for the Sun Times and is a complete idiot. He is nothing more than a fat slob who thinks he knows everything there is to know about music. He don't know jack! Every tour the band did with Sammy he ripped into. But everyone I talked to loved the shows. If I'm not mistaken on the next page to one of his articles bashing the VH show, he was raving about a band like the Cranberries. So what does that tell ya!
