    Default A Mea Culpa Of Sorts

    So I just came across Guitar101, and wow what a great selection of VH boots over there. Love the site.
    I don't have much in the way of boots, so I start looking around there and mainly searching for stuff from the Dave era. Have some live Cherone and Hagar stuff, but very little Roth.
    I gotta say, I ran into a couple of boots that were very impressive. One from 1977, and one from 1982 that sound pretty good. Not only did they sound good, but Roth sounded "good". I never knew he gave a decent performance (at least in my eyes) in his life. I know many other disagree. I was basing my opinion on Roth's live perfomances I've seen -- 1984 tour, US Festival, Skyscraper tour, ALAE tour, and Sam & Dave tour. Also the few performances I've seen of him on TV. I paid to see four of those shows and felt like I got ripped off every time I walked out (at least by Roth).
    I'll just say it was pleasantly surprising to hear Roth at a much better level than I've ever imagined live, and being able to add some of those tracks to my collection.
    I was wrong about one thing for sure -- Roth did indeed once "have it". I know there are some at this site that thinks he still "has it" or "has never lost it, and that's cool. I'm not looking to start a flame thread, just pointing out that when I'm wrong, I'm wrong.
    Anybody that hasn't been to guitar101 should definitely check it out.

    Hope this is the right forum for this, since it's about VH past performances I put it here. If it needs moved, sorry.

    SOME VH LINKS CLASSICS


    "Sammy is fat, Dave is bald, Mike is next in line to be the Pope, Eddie is a drunk, Wolfie is fat, Gary is gay, CVH is VH, Mike is VH, Sammy can outsing Dave on a tequilla hangover, Eddie is a meth head, How Many Say I is the worst VH song ever, Up for Breakfast is a close second, Dave was horrible at radio and everybody hates the assless chaps.
    Ok I think that covers everything." Ziggysmalls

    I didn't say we'll get to the destination, but until Alex comes out a says what a complete waste of carbon DLR is, we're still climbing, so strap yourselves in.
    Those of you who have been on this ride before, the hottie in the mini will be around shortly with your drinks......." Red

    It is great. And, if you haven't done it already pick up 316 Live 1992. It's a MUCH BETTER mix of the RHRN Live disc VH released. It sounds a ton better, IMO and also has some covers not included on RHRN.

    If you love the VH boot section over at 101, you should send a "thank You" to our own SuckaInA3Piece. He used to help run that site and most of those boots were made available from his own extensive collection !

    Just a thought.......
