    Default Sam / Dave Tour VH1 special

    Not sure if this has been posted or not - if so, mod's please treat it like a Courtney Love sex tape.

    However, it's the first time I've seen it...a VH1 special on the Sam / Dave tour. No, this isn't meant to start a Sam / Dave thing (which would happen in a thread entitled who makes the better Hamburger).

    My POV...at times, Sam comes of as a spoiled kid...but Dave comes off as a complete douche.

    Anyway - a fun 13 minutes of viewing. I had no idea Sam always watched Dave when he performed.

    I watched that once, and came away disappointed in both of them. But as you said, especially DLR.

    No need for me to watch that trainwreck again.

    I would like to think it is just in how they cut it to try and make them seem pricks, but in all reality, they were probably both pricks.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    I'll fire the first shot: Dave ruined what could have been something awesome for the fans. Beyond looking and sounding awful, his self-absorbed, hyper-narcissistic, and totally bizarre nature prevented any collaboration that would have changed the way we all remember this gig. I saw them three times on the tour and I left Dave's show each time. I couldn't take it. If Eddie Van Halen is not in the room when Dave is in the room, then I have no reason to be in the room.

    I saw them once. I enjoyed the show - but hear what you're saying.

    The thing I remember reading about was Mikey wanting to go on stage w/ Dave and play some tunes, and I think that would have been HUUUUUUUGGGGGEEEE to the fans. But Dave didn't want it - and for the life of me, I can't understand why...

    Never seen that footage... Interesting stuff

    It's hilarious how much Sam actually lets Dave get under his skin...

    it paints them both in a pretty bad light. I'm sure both were posturing for the camera.

    I really thought at the time that Sam was under the impression that he could get along with Dave and it turned out that he just couldn't. I dont know if Dave ever even tried to get along with Sam....who knows? Dave was very strange at that point in time.

    Dave's Dreidel, LOL.


    I'm pretty sure that Dave was pulling himself out of some major insecurities at this point of his life... and overcompensating as a result.

    Sam ... pretty much the same, but for different reasons.

    That said... they went with the whole Pro Wrestling act... I'm pretty sure that was a successful tour for both of them.

    I think the reason DLR didn't jam with MA was to save any real VH moments for when that actually happened as opposed to this freaky tour which was more about pride and showmanship.

    Just my 2 yen...

    I thought I read that Mike told Al he was gonna go out and play with Sammy on that tour... and Al said just don't play with Roth.

    Anybody know what I'm talking about?... or am I making that up?...

    that was the story Mike was telling at the time. the only exception is he didn't say he told Al he said he told "the brothers" and they didn't have a problem with it as long as he didn't play with roth.

    I thought it was reported that Mikey tried to talk to Roth on the tour that he was messing up a great opportunity to come back to VH based on them trying something back in 2000-2001. But Roth wouldn't listen to Mikey either...

    sound familiar?

    I like both so much better with VH, but if I had to take one of them as a solo artist it would be Sam even though something about him I tired of about 10 years ago.

    When I saw this tour in Mansfield Ma, Sam put on a hell of a show. Not to mention he had Gary join him as well as members of Boston as he opened that night. By the time Dave came on I was spent and just sat there watching a VH tribute show. That was the last time I got goose bumps seeing Sammy perform. Like I said, something changed along the way with him for me.

    they both make ed and al seem like they were right all along.

    both seemed like prima donnas here tho.

    dave like that all the time. sam prolly just for tv (back then) DLR seems more humble than he was then, these days.
