    He said Durst was a nice guy, but the funniest moment happened when he walked into Durst's
    office, and Fred was wearing his glasses and doing some work on the computer, while Limp
    Bizkit was playing on his stereo system.

    That always cracked me up.

    Appreciate your opinion but not fine. Not fine at all.
    I think they were all a bit off that tour. Yeah, he was sloppy. So were the Stones in '78 and 81 on some tunes.
    Not every song was complete garbage. Sloppy VH is better than no VH.

    Smashing stuff, fighting....that's rock. Don't see the problem.

    Really, there should have never been a reunion. It was too soon.

    I do prefer Roth, but I prefer a good set list too. Those last few years were bad on that front. It got worse and worse.
    I guess ya had to be there for every tour. It got boring.

    Had they played, consistent, non repetitive, songs every tour, I woulda been down for a Sam reunion.

    Them, as a band wasn't my issue. It was what they were playing every three years. They were worse than a radio station.

    There was absolutely no surprise walking into a 1991-95 Van Halen show when it came to what you were going to get setlist wise. A lot of bands that have been around awhile have the same problem. It's one of the big reasons I love going to see Pearl Jam. They always mix it up and are a damn great band live.

    Ed’s more than happy to love himself up. Pretty much all he talks about the last 10-15 years is how revolutionary he was in 1978...

    I saw every tour from Van Halen starting with OU812.

    The setlist from 93 was very different from 91 and 95 was very different than those too so I’m not following you.

    Incorrect, all he talks about is how revolutionary his son is going to be. Get it right.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

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

    Eh. Kind of? I'm not going to go over setlists, song-for-song, but the 2004 setlist did have a very "more of the same" type of feel. There were some interesting choices throughout the years - keeping Mike's Somebody Get Me a Doctor when they toured with Sam in 2004 was appreciated...humans being was a nice choice...in 1995, the only version of Eagels Fly live I ever liked with the whole band kicking in was pretty cool, but they had their favorites and that was obvious. I always hated the way they slowed Top of the World way down. And I felt they could have captured more of the album sound for Finish What You Started as a change of pace.

    I'll tell you 5150 should have been played at every Sam concert ever, and it wasn't. Ditto for Mine All Mine. Always thought they could have opened the shows in 2004 with an Ed solo (but when he was on, not the nights he wasn't)...

    You could probably argue against any of these points, but my overall opinion is that shows with Sam got stale at some point. Even with the Balance heavy setlist in 1995...I got playing the new ones, but it was the old ones that bothered me. I don't really want to hear Sam sing Ain't Talkin Bout Love anymore. I'd rather him do something new (old). Anyway, just the vibe I got from Sam shows. They could have done more. While I'm a huge Sam fan, I was so excited in 2007 for the Dave shows, because I was ready for a big change.

    You had six songs every tour. ATBL, Panama, YRGM, 55, One Way To Rock, Eagles Fly. Then, the last two tours, the rockers from the first two records started disappearing. It got seriously boring.

    I guess it depended where you were. '93 wasn't much different from 91. They added Unchained and something else...can't recall.
    No different from the Monsters to the fall tour. They added RWTD and that was it.

    Of course, five, six new songs , so, that changed it a little every tour, but the rest was the same, for the most part.
    There was always a couple new ones that didn't need playing either.

    Ed and Mike doing the same solos, same tunes, same Sam tunes.....it needed an overhaul.
