    Default Daveís voice 2008-2012, & 15

    Iíve seen every VH tour since 1984 (including Vh3) except for the 07-08 tour, recently I watched the Baltimore show from 08; man his voice was on point! (For Dave); Iím not a musician in any way, just trying to see if anyone knows what happened in th following two tours, 2012 he complained about the blowers/ac everywhere, and 2015 (all outdoor shows not ironically); he did more of the talk/signing thing...

    and, wonder8mg how a signer could get back to that level of 2008.....

    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    2007 Dave was, from most accounts, including mine, the best heíd been live vocally since the Ď80 Invasion tour.

    Did Dave once steal Robbieís beer money and/or kick his moose?

    2007 in Boston = Dave was great, Ed had an "on" night compared to a lot of the Jan/Feb 2008 shows, but still wasn't his old self yet.
    2008 in Manchester = Both Ed & Dave in top form.
    2012 in Boston & Manchester = Ed was amazing & because we had dates early on in the tour, Dave was still decent. Not nearly as bad at the midwest shows at the end of the tour.
    2015 in Mansfield = Ed was still amazing & Dave was pretty bad.

    I donít understand these weirdos that gotta slag one singer just to prop the other. Itís so weird for middle aged men to continue to want to do that. From both sides. Slagging either singer for their own failings is fine, but doing it to boost validity for the other guy is juvenile.

    It's so much deeper than one guy. The singers are like a prop or a propeller sometimes.
