    Nothing special, though it was something.

    Guy just gets to meet the band at some radio station party. Alex told him to follow your dreams, you can achieve anything you want, so the guy is now playing his acoustic in a small restaurant/bar crediting Alex for changing his life.

    Couple small digs at Mike and Sam too. They play "Right Now" in the background when they show a picture of the guy with Sam and it says "Right now, Sammy is wondering how much lower he can go" and earlier they showed a picture of him with Eddie and it said "with Eddie Van Halen" and another one with Mike that said "with some other guy in Van Halen".

    Saw most of the show. That Madonna guy is a flake. I'd love to be a celeb for a day just to mess with people like that.

    I liked the segment with the groupie. She's talking about all the rock stars she's had (including Dave) and as they are talking to her at her home they keep cutting away from her to VH stuff in her house.

    It was also cool that they saved the best for last. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Anybody but me notice that even VH-! takes digs at SPAMMY when they can? I guess the main stream media does get it. How cool!

    Everybody but the Cabo Wabo Cantina bar backs who visit the links. Popular opinion has always been for a Roth reunion. Look at the excitement that was generated in 96 from the prospect of a Dave reunion. Had their been a Roth reunion Sam's contributions would have been discarded like a red rocker douche. Do you honestly think that kids today are buying Fair Warning or OU812? The 30,000 plus Sam fans would disagree.

    Did the show even mention Roth at all? That should tell you something. VH1 takes a few jabs at Sammy simply because he still is in the media. Besides...What the fuck do they know? Mainstream media thought that The Hives were the next coming of the Beatles and Britney Spears has talent!

    How the hell do you know what popular opinion is? A Roth reunion would be an embarrassment. Why do you think Ed kicked him out again.

    '96 excitement?
    Where are you from? The only one excited was David Lee Roth. Where did that get him?

    And finally, if there are only 30,000 Sammy Hagar fans then that means there are 29,600 more than Roth.

    MARD, I truly respect that you are such a devoted Sammy Hagar fan, seriously. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] But come on, the audience and most VH fans went ballistic seeing the original lineup again. I really don't know how you can dispute that.

On the radio, there were literally people calling in crying. (And "NO! I wasn't one of them! )
    Not to mention, when those two songs came out, a lot of people criticized them saying "Why is Roth screaming like Sammy? Where's the fun? Where the jive talkin'? Finger snappin' ?"

    It wasn't like "Thank god they kicked Sammy out and brought back Roth." Although a few people here might want to think so.

    What was it then?
    Know Roth
    Know Van Halen

    No Roth
    No Van Halen

    Actually, I thought the footage for the segment was very equally split between Sammy and Dave eras. They had Panama and Hot for Teacher for Dave, and Dreams/Right Now for Sammy. They didnt favor one era over the other..it was kind of chronilogical.

    As far as VH's current relevance, you noticed they saved the VH stuff for last and that Eddie is the main pic on the VH1 "Night With" web page.
