    I'm in favour of VH played on any station. Hair metal, new country, R&B, etc.

    They did what they do, almost always. They saw a formula that was working and wanted to repeat it and repeat it and repeat it and repeat it until GnR said, “Fuck you.”

    The only two “hair-metal” bands worth anything, IMO, were Bon Jovi and Journey. I wouldn’t even classify them as such simply because they had substance, to me.

    Bands who have lead singers who went to the David Lee Roth school of frontmen.

    I would not include Journey as a hair band.

    I still love Ratt, Cinderella, some Dokken, and I will always love Vito Bratta's playing in White Lion although the singer blows.

    Man, I hate when I tell people I listen to hair metal (i.e. Ratt, Dokken, White Lion) and they immediately say "You mean like Poison or Motley Crue?" Probably the two bands I can stand the least from that era.

    Journey is not a hair band. Bon Jovi is the epitome of a hair band.

    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney

    Sam’s the one that lies about it.

    If he wants to lie about it people will continue to correct him.

    And it’s got nothing to do with Dave vs Sam. It’s got to do with Sam vs the truth.

    Fine, but why argue over such a pointless topic? That’s all I’m saying....But your mileage may vary...
