    Ironically, most of these guys aren't Roth only. The real Dave fans reside at the Army. Many of them used to post here, and some were stellar cats, intelligent and witty. A lot of them stopped posting here because a strange phenomenon happened when Dave and Ed decided to do business in 2006. A strange segment of fans who'd only ever seen Sammy Halen live suddenly became diehard Dave fans because it was their first opportunity to see Dave and Ed play together live. They didn't care that Mike had been replaced by Wolfie. The real Dave guys did, and still do. They were loyal to the OG lineup, and the OG lineup alone. No replacing anybody, including Dave. That's why it's important to distinguish the difference between Dave Halen guys and VH4 guys. Because VH4 guys don't care who's playing bass or drums. They just want to see Dave and Ed, and no Sammy, because Sammy's all they got when they came of age.

    Most old schoolers here, including the real Dave guys, jumped ship because the constant ra ra of VH4/ADKOT, coupled with the trolling of anything other than that version of VH, got too frequent and abrasive to continue posting in a friendly environment.

    There's still a few left, obviously, a number of mods and a few regular posters and a handful of occasional visitors...and sure, VH being on endless hiatus over and over doesn't help traffic obviously...but the great number of regulars whom used to post between hiatuses left...because of a handful of your old site refugees, and a few followers who hopped on their bandwagon in 2012 or later.

    And you know perfectly well it isn't baseless. Your friend was the dumbfuck who posts the Aryan bullshit. Not me. The only accusations I've made were easily proven.

    Daisy seems to think you're pretty vile too. I imagine a number of folks do. Not everyone is as vocal about it as me.

    But feel free to continue your temper tantrum tirade to get me banned so you can have your board back for you six kiddies. Maybe it'll work, who knows. But I'm not letting you forget your prejudice or your role in driving others away. And I'm sure your wife enjoys your tolerance of the R word.

    What he means is he has no idea at all and is just cherry-picking assumptions to suit the narrative he wants to paint.

    Pretty sure Brett and several mods told you to knock it off with the baseless accusations.

    And it's pretty sad when a respected MODERATOR, who you repeatedly attacked over his Catholicism of all things, is also forced to place you on ignore. That sets a real wonderful precedent for this place. Congratulations.

    My accusations arenít baseless.

    You have been told time and again to ignore me and you never do. You donít get to tell me to knock off when you ignore the mods constantly.

    That’s rich, eh? A fucking religious bigot throwing the racist label around.
    †"He has a swaggering retro machismo that will give hives to the Steinem cabal" -Camille Paglia on Donald Trump

    "I wish Bon Jovi would've given me a call before he recorded all of his hits, because the lyrics would've been smarter, the melodies would've been much more smashing, and they would've sold a lot fewer records." -David Lee Roth

    I love how guys that are smaller than kindling talk like they are real life bad asses on the internet. I mean, I guess they could go buy a gun, any fool can pull a trigger.

    In other news, Norway admits that Canada's moose is bigger.

    Mike, I didn't know you had it in you. I knew your wife married you for something...not your looks.
