    You know I'm not much of a cover guy and don't expect VH would do anymore, but I could see Pink by Aerosmith. It sounds like something DLR would have wrote 15 years ago.
    Kinda has that Ice Cream Man feel to it.

    The last time I heard anything on the radio that sounded like VH it was "Slam Dunk".

    And if anyone even thinks of posting KID COCK's name in this thread, they're getting a size 15 boot right up the ass. I'm sick of seeing that trendy shitsucker compared to DLR.

    It just goes to show that there's no one in the current crop of MTV darlings that compare to Dave. If they've got to stretch that far...

    You know, Glenn - I was listening to Dave's "The Best" a couple of weeks ago and thought the same thing about "Showtime".

    RIGHT NOW....The original Van Halen is working together somewhere....

    Well FORD Kid Rock has to be the greatest frontman at this time. I mean golly gee he rocks.
    .................oh my God I'm fixing to throw up.

    He is not fit to hold Dave's jock strap. I will say though I admire his attempt or lack there of in trying to impersonate Dave. He was a one album wonder. Next year him and Vanilla Ice can chill together at their cribs. Boyzzz!

    Umm, uhh, well, NOTHING AT ALL.

    Possibly...I don't know...something like GNR's "Welcome to the Jungle." MAYBE.

    I'm not sure whether to count songs like Ratt's "Round And Round," which I always thought was just a slow and rather icky version of "Unchained."

    lefthandtapper - you mean Candlebox.

    Yeah, their first album rocked, only lead guitar - no rhythm. Their guitarist could hold his own. Too bad the next albums haven't been up to par.

    Another song on that album which might compare is "You" - as he screams..."F*ck you, I don't want it no more..."

    Those were, good times...

    David Lee Roth is an original and nobody compares to him. Especially in music today.

    I always thought Vince Neil was a DLR imitator similar to how Coverdale sounds like Robert Plant. Success always seems to spawn vocal rip-offs. Also, the first Bulletboys single "Smooth Up in Ya" reminds me of a really bad version of David Lee.

    I always thought White Lion's "Little Fighter" sounded like Sammy era VH to me.

    Speaking of the Bulletboys. They did an album called Freakshow. I thought it sounded very early VH influenced. I actually liked this album, but none of their other stuff.

    I can honestly say that nothing has sounded as 'fresh' or 'mean' as Dave era VH. I always give new (or old) bands the benefit, but they all pale in comparison to old style Van Halen. That mix of chemistry and talent is going to be hard to duplicate! I'm waitin though!
