    No offense, Mike.
    lol, he wasn't being a critic, he was complimenting him and pointing out the power of being a great front man as opposed to being a great technical singer.

    You know, this is rock ‘n’ roll as you pointed out. Bon Scott, Brian Johnson, Little Richard, James Brown, and on and on would never win a singing contest, but you’re hard pressed to find someone who can pull that off and not look like a jerkoff.

    Only Dave gets measured to Callas and Caruso on this board. It’s silly and it’s always the same clowns.

    It's to merely play the game of Sammy is better since he's a better technical singer. Well Gary is a better technical singer than both of them. So not sure what the end game is after a while. It's to argue just to argue I guess.

    Time to repost this

    December 24, 2018

    In 2000, Van Halen’s tribute album “A Tribute Tribute to Van Halen 2000” was released. King’s X frontman Dug Pinnick was featured as a vocalist on that album. In addition, Yngwie Malmsteen played guitars…

    In a recent interview with Straus Project, King’s X frontman Doug Pinnick has shared story about how he recorded Van Halen’s Light Up The Sky. He said:

    “I did ‘Light Up The Sky’. Oh my god. Okay, I never thought David Lee Roth was a good singer at all, never did. I met him. He said to me, ‘I never thought I was a good singer. I bring the circus to town.’ I’m going, ‘Oh, I get it.’

    Then I went home and I got the opportunity to sing this song and I thought, ‘Okay, I’m just going to sing it like Doug sings it.’ I started to sing and it was horrible. I went, ‘Oh no. I got to learn it exactly like he did it.’ I got in my car and drove around town and got stoned and learned every mimic and inflection he did.

    When I got done, [I thought], ‘You’re a genius motherfucker. David Lee Roth, you are a badass, how you sing so great, how you can tell a story and slide in and out of the melody.’ I went, ‘Oh, wow!’ From that day on, I’m going, ‘Okay, much respect.’ But, that’s what it took. We’re all like that. We don’t like things until somebody kicks us. But that’s probably one of the proudest…

    I don’t have very many proud moments but that was one only because I nailed him. That’s what I like. When I feel like I nailed somebody, that’s when I’m happy. When I do me and everybody loves it, I just go, ‘That’s what I do.’ When I copy Jimi Hendrix and you go, ‘Oh my god!’ Other than that, that’s just me. I try to do everybody, but I can’t.

    That’s how everybody becomes original, you just try to imitate everybody else and it turns into a soup, then all of the sudden it’s yours.”

    Dave was a very good rock singer back in the day. Now he’s shit. I don’t why those two opinions create such dissension around these parts?

    I’ve seen Dave live plenty of times (only once pre 1985 unfortunately), but the performances I’ve seen from him have ranged from good to shit. All performers have good nights and bad nights.

    My issue with Dave (and granted I haven’t seen this band live since 2008 and am basing my opinion based on appearances I’ve seen in 2012 and 2015 either on YT or TV) is he’s fallen off so far that in my opinion he’s not worth paying to see, especially without MA there backing him up.
    SOME VH LINKS CLASSICS


    "Sammy is fat, Dave is bald, Mike is next in line to be the Pope, Eddie is a drunk, Wolfie is fat, Gary is gay, CVH is VH, Mike is VH, Sammy can outsing Dave on a tequilla hangover, Eddie is a meth head, How Many Say I is the worst VH song ever, Up for Breakfast is a close second, Dave was horrible at radio and everybody hates the assless chaps.
    Ok I think that covers everything." Ziggysmalls

    "I sense that some of our newer passengers may be nervous due to the sudden turbulence. Please be seated, this is simply a normal part of the periodic ride.
    I didn't say we'll get to the destination, but until Alex comes out a says what a complete waste of carbon DLR is, we're still climbing, so strap yourselves in.
    Those of you who have been on this ride before, the hottie in the mini will be around shortly with your drinks......." Red

    Someone who they interviewed on the Dave and Dave podcast nailed it one time when he said Dave has a singing style he uses sometimes that sounds like Lou Costello doing the “HEY ABBOTT!” yell.

    How boring would that be?

    To my credit, when i first heard Roth, i knew he was unique.
    Just like i knew Steven Tyler & Bon Scott were unique.

    Bon Scott, another brilliant example.

    Like Roth, Bon was one of the greatest "character" singers, in all of rock.
    To this day, Bon is beloved and just has a sound" HIS sound.

    I have a WBCN broadcast of AC/DC playing the Paradise (a club), on the Powerage tour.

    Between song's, you just hear these kids, in thick Boston accents, going:

    BON SCOTT!

    BON SCOTT!

    BON SCOTT!

    Bon's super cool & just responds: Havin' a good time, that's alright....

    But i expected just to hear, ANGUS!!!!!

    But, Bon just had a presence on that stage.

    Exactly. Also why Dave and Bon are my two favorites.

    I think my two favorite singer/frontmen are Robert Plant and Sting.
