    I don't post here much, but read the posts often. I am convinced at this point that as a whole you guys just won't be happy with Dave or Sammy. If Dave comes back, people will bitch that he is an asshole. If Sammy comes back, you will bitch that he isn't Dave. It is my opinion that Dave IS an asshole. He is snide, rude and the man has never been serious in his life. Sure, he made great music with VH, but move on! As for Sammy, it is my opinion that he is a much more down to earth, true in-the-trenches lead singer that would be great for any rock group. The truth is rock as we knew it is dead. No one cares about Sammy, Dave or Van Halen anymore. During their time, they were great, but like everything else, they have faded away. As someone posted earlier, Sammy is in his 50's now and Dave is not far behind. With all the buzz about Sammy coming back, let's be realistic, it wouldn't last forever, meaning that eventually, inevitably VH will reunite with DLR. Either way, I don't give a shit. I just want VH to live on while there is still time. So whether Sam or Dave comes back, be grateful and don't whine about it.

    Sheesh.

    All I want is the return of Van Halen. If it's Dave, Sam or Gary I have no complaints and I'll even welcome a 4th vocalist as well. I just want these guys making music again.

    Who cares if Dave is an asshole. VH with Dave is cool and without Dave it's shit. Sammy can be the nicest person in the world but he still sucks. Fuck Sammy and the other bozos if they want to make music that sucks pouch. Even the two real VH songs in 96 kick ass over anything made by Van Hagar.

    They ALL need to make some adjustments. Ed and Al need to do some public relations work. Aerosmith may be bubble-gum, pop-rocking sellouts, but all the kids these days (read: record-buying majority) know exactly who Steven Tyler is, and it ain't just "Liv's Dad". Dave needs to finally release that Dahm triplet porno we all know he has hidden deep in the bowels of the Mojo Dojo - come on, Dave, you know that's the only way your DVD is gonna move any significant units (provided the fucking thing ever streets). And Sam needs to find a band that can write an original tune instead of releasing albums heavy on the "cover songs with different lyrics" shit. "Things've Changed" = "Night Moves". "Mas Tequila" = "R&R Pt. 2". "5150" = Classic. "Humans Being" = Art.

    We of all people know what they're capable of. THAT's what pisses people off, and that's why emotions run so high around here.

    I think most of us, at this point, don't give a flying crap who the singer is - we just want some music from Ed. Hell, Amy Grant could be singing and I would be first in line for a new Van Halen album.

    Picasso, Van Gogh, Kubrick.......... many - most artists are difficult to work with ("assholes")but what they produce is worth it. And, sometimes it is the collaboration between certain artists that results in greatness whereas on their own their art may not be so great. What Roth and Van halen produced was exceptional, both in the studio and onstage. Roth's an asshole? Perhaps, but it was Roth who was the brilliant "spokesman" for a couple of guys just out of their teens who all wanted to play but didnt have much of a clue as to how to promote themselves and talk the talk to radio and the press. The Van Halens and Anthony didn't want the difficult job of promotion, image-making etc that is absolutely essential to get noticed and signed (believe me, I've seen extraordinary musicians with great songs in bands who went NOWHERE because they lacked something crucial to a band's success - a frontman/spokesperson). The argument that EVH's brilliant playing would have landed him a record deal and worldwide fame automatically - no matter what band he was with, is fatally flawed. Read what the Van halens and Anthony have said many times "We're just a band, we just want to play."

    I think they, and the post-Roth fans forget how Dave was such a huge part of getting them to where they got in the first place.
