    Sorry folks, but I have to say this - I cringe when I hear Vic's playing.

    Sam, I know it would be tough, but this band needs a better guitarist.

    I think that way sometimes, but then I hear him play non-VH and he sounds fine. For some reason I don't like how he interprets Ed's playing. Which is ok, everyone has their own voice on their instrument, but I think it is more about how comfortable Sam is with him and less about whether or not he is a virtuoso.
    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'm in the same boat. I'm not a big fan of how he plays some of the VH tunes. Whether it's be design or not, I feel like it's missing something.

    I remember a quote from Michael Angelo Batio, regarding one of his instructional dvds - "You can't play 90's licks with 60's technique."

    Vic is a good player, yet I don't think he's cut out for the ultra modern stuff. Not a slur on him..., he just isn't that type of player.

    But when I listen to those songs played by Sam solo, the focus shifts. I'm not listening to the guitar player to see if he's going to add some cool runs during the Summer Nights intro. Focus is more on the vocals and the song itself.

    Absolutely, and I think that's the overall vibe they were going for.
    The songs and the event itself. They didn't set out to be note for note perfect, just having fun onstage and with the audiences.

    Sammy could"ve tapped any number of virtuoso guitar players to perform with him, but that wasn't the M.O. he/they were going for.

    The controversy, if you can call it that, going on in redhead circles, is that Sam didn't invite the Wabos to play at his 70th. No David Lauser and no Mona. I think Lauser is pretty upset, since he's known Sam since the early 70s and has always stood by his side through thick and thin. And one thing about the Wabos, beyond technical ability, is that they knew the whole Sam catalog and could play deep cuts.

    ^^^ I could see people being pissed about that. I think Lauser took a break after his wife passed but that was a while ago now.

    Do you think Mike ever said to Sue, "What in Pasadena is going on here? First I'm replaced by some kid, and then by a chick..." Haha.

    Yeah, I think David Lauser's daughter made mention of that on Facebook. I agree that the Wabos along with Jesse Harms should have been invited. Of course, I could say the same thing about Denny Carmassi, Bill Church and Gary Pihl, Van Halen, HSAS and Chickenfoot members. Anyhow, just saying an invite would be nice.
