    When there seemed to be no hope at all, I've been there saying "they'll be back..."
    ADKoT was the redemption album.

    The guys have been through a lot since then, but much of it has been GOOD. Plus they recorded all those extra demos (35?) for "Truth"...
    I totally can picture another studio record happening.

    There have been mentions in the various review threads about his voice, coughing, causes of the coughing, etc (he NEVER did it in 07/08, started it in the 2012 tour). Here's graphic evidence he really is coughing up crap all the time. Hell, it shoots out his nose AND mouth at the 18 second mark, enough that he can't even continue the opening and restarts it. Sick, cigs, or whatever, gotta be hard to sing with that kind of congestion every 30 seconds.

    And yeah he has been toning it down better this tour, a lot. But he STILL goes to the danger zone often. Hell, the first verse and pre-chorus he's right back up there in the shit zone. Second verse too. But he has been better often like the 07/08 Dave.

    Oh my how the Mighty have fallen. This run has been embarrassing and difficult to watch.
    I watched a lot of You Tube vids from the first show in Auburn,WA and was absolutely dumbfounded. I couldn't believe how bad it was. The crowd seemed lifeless and sparce.
    I am a huge VH fan. They were bad ass back in the day. They are now a tired old has been side show that should simply hang'em up. I hope Dave isn't sick and wish him good health, but he is terrible right now. His cheesy schtick it so annoying with that huge phony smile.
    Also, why do they continue to close with Jump? Save it....what a corny ending. It should be left off of the set list entirely.

    My father takes 10 minutes to form a sentence sometimes because of the phlegm in his throat. I feel bad, really. He had no choice but to fight thru that.

    Yeah, the band was much better when Ed was playing better than he is now and Dave wasn't cheesy. I wish there was video of that. And unicorns.

    Welcome fellow newbie. I think your eyesite has been failing you and you may need a earwaxing at your family practitioner. The only redeeming part of your post for me is the bolded to which I would counter -- they need to add "Hang 'em High". What a POWER HOUSE thrill ride addition that would be!
