    That's funny, I heard that once...I was all dude, seriously? But that's probably your average fan

    True. Honestly...a huge percentage of fans that buy tickets don't know who the singer is until VH hits the stage. I can't imagine going to a show not knowing, but these days most folks just see "Van Halen tickets" and they either want to go or they don't....singer is irrelevant. They might have a preference, but they're going either way.

    Can't tell you how many people I've told I'm going to a VH show and gotten the "Who is singing for them?" question. Folks just don't know and don't care.
    I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em. -

    What’s odd is some guys apparently needing the Dam vs Save thing to be an actual culture current. It’s not. No matter how much some guys weirdly need it to be.

    Taking VH lead singer sides was fun for about a year in 1985-1986. After that...what’s the fucking point. Pop culture doesn’t care. A few music rags still occasionally note the nostalgia bent for clickbait and that’s about the end of it outside of this place. The most common sentiment I’ve overheard outside in the mezzanine at every ‘VH’ show since ‘95 is, “Which singer is singing tonight?”

    And for the last time, the reason Sammy ‘never shuts his yapper’ is because Sammy is the only guy who does interviews.

    Nobody cares, JD. Except some last remaining online fans. Like you. But i know you’ll attend the Dam Halen same as you will the Save Halen. So it’s all wind from you.
    Lol. And this is why its impossible to have civil debates with you, and I'll just leave it at that.

    The debate was over in '86, but there's always been a discussion about it since. Seems like every guitarist has to state his favorite. I've seen several YT channels mention their favorite era. There's been references on TV, sometimes. That Metal show did it all the time. It's never really went away.
    Everyone who's a fan has an opinion. Even the casual fan....if you ask them.
    Even the new fans. I'm sure if asked Jacob about it....he has a favorite.

    Sam never shuts his yapper cuz he loves his time in the band. The best work he ever did. Is proud of what he did.
    That's great. He was great. Did great work. But when you have to give interview after interview...rehash the same ole stuff every few months....it's gets a little old. Time to turn down an interview once in awhile.

    Everything was fine until you fired an unnecessary potshot.


    Don’t you ever get tired of fighting with people man?

    It must be exhausting to be you.

    Look in the mirror, dumbfuck.

    You're the last guy that should be asking that question. It's pretty much your entire MO for being here.

    You tried to stir shit up in another thread that What a Rocker started and no one took the bait. So I guess we'll start here instead.

    I'm game. Let's take the gloves off, bitch.

    Let me guess, you'll start by calling me a racist.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.
