    VH confirmed Sammy was out of the band and they were working with Dave (not permanently) on a song or two for their upcoming greatest hits release.

    i remember it like it was yesterday. i was stuck in traffic when i heard the DJ read the news on the radio. i nearly crashed my car.

    OH, WHEN WILL THE SOAP OPERA END????

    Also on this date, 2000, was the re-launch of the official Van Halen web site. We were all so hopeful that we would get the big news we all wanted. Little did we know. [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img]

    I remember driving home from work cheering when the DJ said that Sammy was out and Dave was in. Although, he neglected to say that Dave was in for only BOV1.

    Man, I can't believe it's been 5 years already. Since then, I've gotten married, have a child and bought a house. I'll probably have grandkids by the time the next VH album comes out [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img].

    I remember hearing it on the radio at lunch that day. I was so very hopeful, and still am.

    I heard it on MTV News and I was completely shocked. At that point we all thought Dave was back in the band for good, but after the greatest hits album things only got worse. [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]

    I loved watching the Welcome back Kotter theme on MTV with Dave and the boys.

    I remember hearing that and saying, "No fucking way in hell! I'll only believe they made that mistake when I read something official from them!"

    Seems in the long run, my perspective was more correct [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]

    I didn't like the way acted as though VH didn't exist before him. He acted as though he was the original singer and 5150 was their first album.

    I for one do not miss him. VH has and will survive without him. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    I remember this day like it was yesterday, hard to believe it was five years ago! I'd been waiting eleven years for this announcement and couldn't believe it had finally happened. Don't get me wrong, I dig the Sammy era too, but Van Halen will always be Dave, Eddie, Mike, and Al to me! When they appeared on the MTV awards, however, I knew it was doomed. The way Dave acted while the award was being presented, same old Dave! What a bummer, I knew that it wouldn't last. Let's hope these guys have learned some things over the past five years.
