    Default Great Perfromance of Unchained w/Sam



    It's too bad they didn't do more classics with Sam as I thought this was pretty cool and I think he may have ingratiated himself with some of the Dave fans if they would have done some more classics with him at the mic. I know that was my biggest gripe about the Van Hagar era as I liked the music they were putting out, but still wanted to hear some of the older stuff live.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    I agree , Sam should've tried to do more of the 6 pack material while he was in Van Halen . I'm more than impressed with the songs that he did with the band , but the older stuff more than likely would've gone over very well too .

    Crowds loved it when Cherone did 'Mean Street' , 'Feel Your Love Tonight' , 'I'm the One' , etc. It wasn't Roth but it it was still very cool . Sammy would've done all that and even more IMO .

    Love that version of Unchained...this one too. This stretch of shows in 1993 showcases some of VH's best live performances ever.

    That's what was frustrating at times - you knew Sam could do it, he just didn't want to. I mean a song like "Drop Dead Legs" - the lyrics could be Sammy Hagar lyrics, every damn word of the song. It was just a pure ego thing.

    It was a very cool surprise. '93 was before the internet spoiled set-lists, so there wasn't any hint it was coming.

    This is the best '93 Unchained performance, IMO...

    I was okay with Van Hagar at first, it wasn't the original but it was still good. By the end of the Sam run though I was getting tired of them ignoring the Dave years.

    I could understand them not doing very much of the old stuff the first tour or two, so they could establish themselves as a new band but by the time FUCK came out I was ready to hear some of the old stuff again, even with Sam.

    I know some tunes wouldn't sound right with Sam singing but there was a quite a few he could've done. Hell, he could've just strapped on the guitar and let Mike sing a few tunes, if he was that uncomfortable doing 'em...I don't know if he was uncomfortable, probably more ego driven than anything.

    I think I remember Sam saying something about the lyrics of CVH. He couldn't "feel them" or some bullshit like that, because as a singer, one must have a connection to the lyric in order to sing it.

    You got paid to sing Sam. Save the emotion for your songs because if you can sing UFB then you can sing any Roth era tune. That was THE biggest injustice about his time in the band, imo.

    I've never understood why people put all this on Sam. I'm sure as a band EVH and AVH were the ones making most of the calls on what gets played. Do you guys actually think that they wanted to glorify the DLR era after the split? They knew they had to play some songs so they chose the biggest hits just to make people happy.
