    Does anyone remember Ed's comments about not wanting to "rip off" the fans to reunite with Dave? In 1996 Dave claims that he was in 5150 and wanted to "fire up" some of the classic songs and Ed refused becasue he did not want to be a nostalgia act.

    Riddle me this then, why did he play 75% of Dave era songs on the "3" tour? Then they only remastered the Dave era CD's as well?

    Realizing that what the fans want 1st and foremost is the most important thing.

    I think that is the dillemma facing Eddie. He knows that a Dave Reunion will garner attention. But he as a musician probably wants someone who is a great singer as well as musician.

    75% of the 3 tour was Dave-era songs? You better check your facts. VHND has setlist from every show on the tour. You'll find you're pretty far off the mark.

    Next thing you know, somebody is going to start talking about all the stadiums DLR and VH filled. [img]tongue.gif[/img]

    75%??? Where did you come up with this? I saw the first concert of the "3" Tour in Houston and they played 4 Dave era songs I believe.Far from 75%. As far as the Remaster's go I think that was all Warner Bros Decision.

    Ok I was wrong about what they played in Houston on the "3" Tour.I just looked at the setlist on VHND and they played 7 Roth songs, and 5 Hagar songs plus 5 Off of "3" with Cherone.Thats still a long way from the 75% Dave era songs you stated....

    Y'know come to think of it, VH could NOT be a nostalgia act with Dave if they toured behind a new album. If they went out doing what Dave is doing now, with no album, just classics, yes they would be a nostalgia act. But Dave really would need to modernize a bit.
    I know, I've been one of the worst on accusations of "nostalgia". I think if Dave/VH could come out with some cgtsnm and mwm type stuff, the nostalgia label would be irrelevent. I think my reasoning is on Dave's image.
