    Yep.

    Axl Rose is a great example.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

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

    Like I give a shit what you think. It's inevitable

    You're so gay for Roth that you think he chooses to sound like shit.

    Get real. He's toast. It happens.

    Eddie Van Halen in 2012:

    "ESQ: What are you going to do with all the material that you wrote with Sammy Hagar?

    EVH: Oh, I hadn't thought about that. That's some great music. They're just on vacation, maybe. They're off to college and they're going their own way. Who knows?"

    You need to look up the definition of the word inevitable.

    I am not gay for anyone, not even the legendary Diamond David Lee Roth.

    Sammy is toast when it comes to Van Halen. It happened when he wrote that book.

    And you have so much man-love for Sammy that his incarnation of the band should be renamed Van Hagay.

    See, when you act like a prick, is it really any wonder, outside of Chris and Robbie(shocker), everyone here can't stand you? Oh wait, "you don't care" blah blah blah.

    I've only become aware of VH1988 in the past few months but I'm getting a leftovers whiff of Mothergoose or whatever that clown was called.

    DD knows 100%. it's both. yes a shell of his former voice. sure he's old. But he also chooses to sing wacky notes that were never there on record. That seems to be the case more often than not.

    but in the end doesn't matter much, not many fans will analyze why or care.

    Self-awareness - or lack of - will be massive. I saw Whitesnake the other year and to see the 700 year-old suntanned prune Coverdale pointing at hot 22 year-old girls in the audience, miming oral sex by flicking his tongue through the 'V' of his index and middle fingers proves this. The guy looks like Zelda from Terrahawks, for fuck's sake.

    I can't listen to Tokyo Dome. I've tried. I can't get more than 1.5 songs before I hit eject. The band is tight! Ed, Al & Wolf sound great! Dave's voice does not cut it.

    In spite of that, I'll be there next time they come through town. When I'm there, it's okay, I can enjoy it. At home or in the car, I can't take it.

    There are a few songs on Tokyo where his voice falls into place. He has a decent stretch in the middle of the concert, but there are some real bad parts too.

    I have to give them credit for not touching anything up, but for a band like them at this stage of their careers, it might have been better to do a live tour compilation from multiple nights from 2007, 2008, 2012 and 2013 and put that out instead of what they did.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    I agree with this wholeheartedly. The mix is just so damn dry on Dave's vocals that you hear all the warts. I love Dave and have a great time at the show, but live recordings at this stage of his career are not his friend. A live recording of the 2007/2008 tour would have been much better, even if Ed wasn't at his strongest. Dave sounded miles better that tour. Using a date from later in the tour after Ed came back from his Fountain of Youth excursion would be about the best representation for them at this point.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.
