    He wasn't plugging any "new" material. The tour is over. Why do the show now? Why go on national T.V. and play TWO classic Van Halen songs.
    Whether you liked Dave's appearance or not is not the question here but why he is all of a sudden "looking" to catch the publics eye and with material that is nearly 20 years old? He again referred to the reunion as "inevitable". And IMHO he looked and sounded great. But every time I see Dave it makes me miss Ed, Al and Mike that much more because the "competetiveness" Dave spoke of last night isn't there. That undeniable intense chemistry that was exerted by the original 4 members of the greatest rock band of our time is gone. I loved the Sammy years, but Dave without VH sucks and VH without Dave is just not VH.

    Nicely put man. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Thats what I am trying to say. But the Sam vs. dave argument keeps rearing its ugly head over and over again.

    Dave & VH = great
    Sam & VH = great
    Dave without VH = [img]graemlins/scared.gif[/img]
    Sam without VH =

    Dave & VH 2002 =
    Sam & VH 2002 =

    I'd agree with Eddymon's synopsis. I've been listening to classic vh solid for about three days now, I've come to the realization that Dave will never sound like that again, but he sure as hell looked cool up there, except for that hair, I say just shave that shit.

    Well you can think the VH bros. for ruining what could have been the biggest reunion in rock history. Dave obviously wants it, the fans obviously want, so what do the VH bros. do? Not a damn thing.

    There is probably a LOT more to it behind the scenes that none of us know about. Until we are in their shoes, we are in no position to point blame.

    Dave was on I believe because Sammy's throat still hurts!

    If you really want to believe that was the reason for the two last shows being cancelled!

Both Dave and Sammy have enough "hits" between them that neither one really has to work another day in their lives. Yet, they did the tour, with neither pushing a new product in our faces and both have gotten themselves back into respectable shape. Sammy is my parents age for Christ's sake and looks fantastic! Dave looks 100 times better than he did in '96. Is there something on the horizon for both these guys? I think something is coming.
