    I think if the classic lineup had done a proper tour, he might have been open to it a couple years after. Might with a capital M.

    But it would have never gotten off the ground. Sam would have wanted to close and Dave wouldn't want to open for Sam. And really if I was Dave, neither would I.

    3- the brothers had no choice to keep it classic only for the final run
    4- if you notice Ed played during some songs some riffs from Sammy era- so he had wanted to play at least (maybe?) a few songs .
    5- It was reported that someone in the camp (either wolf, Alex or Ed wanted to play Sammy era stuff towards the End.

    I am not slagging Dave or Sammy. both brought different workings to VH. all I know is that David brought VH to a blistering height, and Sammy was able to keep it there. how many band had success after firing/quitting of their their lead singer.

    not to many at all and not to the same heights. I do think without Sammy joining in 86 Van Halen would not have been as successful from 86-96 (my opinion).

    so I view it as a shot in the arm to continued success.

    I love both versions of VH. both to me have a plus and negative, and I can accept that.

    Not all of David's stuff was Legendary and not all of Sammy's stuff was golden in Van Halen
    I agree with this. To suggest Ed preferred his own music with Dave over his music with Sam is just silly. The majority of Fans wanted to hear the classics after 11 years with Sam and the Gary fiasco. Dave was NEVER going to sing Sam era songs and there was no reason for it...

    The classic reunion tour would probably have been the last one.
    As Ed said they were going out the way they came in.
    There seems to be an attemp to elevate the Hagar era to something more than it was.
    It did not match the Roth era.
    There was less material, fewer great songs and fewer overall sales and influence.
    That's just the reality. Does not mean it wasn't successful, but historically it was what it was.
    It was really like two different groups. The Eddie Van Halen of the Hagar era was not the same guy who set the world on fire for 10 years.
    What would have happened if Steve Perry had decided to give it a go? Now you would have a better singer than Hagar and a songwriter on top of it.

    Dave loved being the front man of the biggest beast of a band of their time. My take is a dual singer tour with Mike would have been the biggest story of rock in the 21st century and not a chance Dave says no. Especially with Ed playing the way he did in 2015. Sadly we will never know.

    Go have your diaper changed junior, cause you ain't makin' the grade around here.
