    Does anyone think Dave quit the band in 1985 to create longevity for VH?

    Maybe he knew VH could make it without him, and he could make it without them. But most big bands seem to break-up only if there is a death in the band.

    Or do you think Dave and Eddie really hate each other?...

    I know for a fact that they did in about 1986 era...and had for many years...quite passionately...I'm sure that it just doesn't die easily...feelings are quite mutual. Although I do hope that things have been patched up somewhat enough for a "reunion". From what I feel...things have worked out somehow (money sure helps)for them to put differences aside. ALthough, for how long? Who knows. I'd bet Sammy will probably be back after this "reunion". In all liklihood, its only a matter of time. For now though I can hardly wait for the reunion...if it takes place. Will make the fur on my arms stand up. And hope for the best. Keeping my fingers crossed but not holding my breath.

    In retrospect, it's hard to get a true feel for the true reasons for the 1985 split. Certainly leaving was Dave's choice, but I'm not sure we'll ever truly understand what dynamics caused them to part company. I think everyone was at fault in some way, but I definitely wouldn't say that Dave left in order to give Van Halen longevity. I would guess that Dave, like most people do when making big decisions, made his decision based on what he felt was best for him, not what was best for Van Halen.

    he said he didn't like the way the music was going. and he probably thought he could sell as many records as he did in VH.

    i really dont feel that dave tried to upstage van halen . i mean vai , and sheen were great , but it really lacked something , i kind of took it as a joke ,.....maybe i'am wrong , but i always felt that dave truly loved van halen , and he did that to protect the memories of the original vh
