    I will agree that the band was "much tighter and more polished" live with Sammy, which is great if you prefer the live songs to sound exactly like the album versions.

    We already heard from the top of the heap a few weeks ago. His name is Michael Sweet.

    Wow, Viv was a fantastic guitarist with those classic Dio albums.
    Not sure why we're equating him with Winger & Poison.
    He was well before that, and coming from a different school of hard rock.

    Having said that, i remember an early interview in GFTPM, where he slammed Eddie, and
    said, "Gary Moore is a much better player & should be as acclaimed as Ed."

    I loved both Gary & Edward, but i thought his comment was a bit over the top.

    Viv is getting slammed because he's playing with Def Leppard. Don't tell fudd.

    Sweet gets it though.

    The way the guy speaks of the CVH era, it resonates, because i felt it too.
    He's knowledgable and understands the bits a lot of folks miss.

    Was not into Stryper, but he comes across as a fan like us & fairly humble.

    AC/DC and The Who had lineup changes.

    But Sammy in VH was a change to the format of the band. VH became a different band with Sammy Hagar.

    I think Viv was correct in that Ed was changing the sound already, when Sam joined.

    Sam was basically a powerhouse rock singer.
    Listen to the first Montrose record or "Top of the rock" by HSAS.
    That's why i liked him more with Schon, it suited the singing style.
    Neal is great, but more direct than Ed.
    Ed's more wonky & slippery, which i love, but it's gotta be tricky for
    a vocalist that comes from a more direct sound.

    Sam sounds relaxed on HSAS, where 5150 feels like he's being pushed outside
    what he's used to.

    He's partial to the original lineup because that's what he grew up with. Interview over.

    If Michael Sweet were to produce the next Van Halen album, the first single could be called "To Hell With Runnin' With The Devil. It's About Time We Started Joggin' With Jesus."
