    I don't think Sammy was super thrilled to go back into the studio to redo the vocals on the live album. That album was worked on just as much as one of their studio albums. So there could've been some early grumbling going on during this period.

    But live albums are traditionally a way to fulfill a contract and pretty sure that was the case here. Might tensions in the band already have been at the point where Sammy and EVH were not super interested in getting together to write? Seems pretty likely.
    I remember reading something about Dave pushing the issue of a greatest hits package with Warner Bros. Van Halen wasn't interested, at the time, and put out the live album instead and included some Roth Era songs with Sammy on the mic to work around contractual issues. Someone confirm or correct this storyline.

    Yes- Google " VHND Right Here Right Now", & read the story of how it came together. David was strongly pressurring Warner Brothers to release an overdue greatest hits compilation from the original contract before he left the band. Read the story on VHND to gain further insight. Definetley a contractual obligation type of thing.

    Whoever edited the RHRN video should be banned from ever working again in the industry - really terrible job. And the band was fucking STUPID for not wearing the same clothes on both nights, if they knew they were recording. Come on, even teenagers wouldn't do this!

    I donít think they were ďhated enemiesĒ in Ď95, but there were definitely strained tensions. It didnít start getting to the hate platform until Aprilí 96 when Eddie was making demands.
