    Default Who has aged better Dave or Sammy?

    Having not seen the latest show from Sammy's Birthday bash or VH's last round of the latest tour- I am wondering what every one thinks. On the internet there is no question in my mind that Sammy's voice has aged better, he still rocks out, and his on stage persona is very similar to his best times in Van Halen. Dave might have a cool pic or two, and has stayed thin, but his voice sounds awful live and he doesn't seem to have the same energy that he used to at all. My vote goes to Sam- what I have heard from the latest birthday bash in Las Vegas proves that he still has it! I hope I get to see Ed and Sam reunited for at least one more time - Ed still has the chops and so does Sam!

    Sammy: the voice, the moves, the wife.

    Dave: the body.

    Obviously Sammy. Although Dave looks to be in good shape for his age every move he makes looks like he's in pain. Not sure how Sammy, at 67, can still go airborne a few times and put forth that kinda energy for an hour and a half. Pretty crazy.

    Dave.



    Sammy could do with losing a few pounds.

    Sammy's persona is all about "fun in the sun" and partying. Drinking and eating....

    Nothing wrong with that. I wish I could.

    Dave had/has the spirit of adventure and is more attracted to athletic endeavors, even though, he too, partied like a mofo.

    I give Dave the edge and it shows most prominently in his physique.

    Oh yeah, forgot about internal mechanics . Sam better than Dave, just because you can't be a super hero and age well, your bones are gonna creak and ache like Daves do. Still though, I just can't picture Sammy trying a flying roundhouse kick right now lmfao. Yet Sam could probably trot down some stairs easily while Dave would look like an old football player ambling down them.

    LOL ... yeah this question is kinda odd ... but I see what you're getting at.

    I saw Dave do a couple roundhouse kicks on the last tour in St. Louis. Pretty badass for an old guy

    Sam's still got the pipes. Pretty badass for an old guy

    Usual answer here. Sam voice, Dave body

    Brain? Dave. I imagine living his life is pretty interesting. Maybe a bit lonely without the usual family/friends stuff going on but I am sure he has friends. Just different ones who can put up with him during his visits to different locales.

    Plus I would know what the hell is really going on in VH.

    Not apples to apples as Dave is 7 years younger than Sammy.

    But I'd say even with the age gap, Sammy has aged better than Dave in every way. Just IMO of course (none of us are their primary care doctor lol so how the hell would we know who truly is physically doing better?)
