    I've always wondered where Ted Templeman was during this time period. Did the VH bros really hate him that much? So many questions and so little answers...

    This is coming out of left field, but this reminded me of something I saw on David Letterman in 1987. That year, a TV mini-series called Amerika broadcast on ABC, and David Letterman's Top 10 addressed it. Number 1 was: Where was Chuck Norris when all of this was going on? I can ask the same about Ted Templeman.

    If I remember right from his autobiography, WB put him out to pasture right around this same time - fired him and paid him out for a 5-year non-compete. Then he went down his own rabbit hole of drugs and alcohol. So safe to say he wasn't doing well either.

    5 million dollar severance package I think he mentioned. But it didn't help. He just didn't have anything to do with his days. Just started drinking. He had an office in Pasadena. He was just blocks away from Dave, ironically, but they weren't speaking.

    Not sure there has ever been a collection of more childish men than Van Halen.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Yep. This is sometimes what happens when young, inexperience creative types hit it big and live a life of the industry folks blowing sunshine up their asses and telling them how great they are. They never grow up.

    Double-edged sword. That same characteristic is what helps them write the songs we love in the first place, but also makes them struggle to function and mature into adults.

    To put it more bluntly, creative types tend to be flaky. And flaky people generally remain flaky. lol
    I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em. -

    In a band? No. Collectively I think Washington DC may have VH beat

    Motley Crue were.

    Read The Dirt or watch the Netflix movie. They take it to another level.

    Excellent point.

    I do have such a lack of respect for so many things that all of the band members of Van Halen have done. And, yes, this includes Dave...he has made SO MANY stupid decisions. I would actually argue that the only VH member with whom I don't have a lot of frustration is Michael. The guy is a class act.

    But Yankee is right...as stupid & childish as the members of Van Halen have been throughout their careers, Mötley Crüe have them beat. Not only did Mötley have a ton of pointless break-ups (I know a lot of people like the Corabi-era, but aside from a couple of songs, I think they were stupid to fire Vince in 1992), but they have done a ton of moronic things.

    Mötley Crüe's substance-abuse adventures made Van Halen look like choir boys. I have never heard of Eddie or Alex injecting themselves with Scotch whiskey. And (as far as we know) no member of Van Halen has become a heroin addict.

    Tommy Lee was notorious for being a woman-beater. No member of Van Halen has ever been known for turning Mr. Hand into Mr. Fist when it comes to their wives/girlfriends.

    Aside from Wolfgang allegedly using vocal backing tracks in 2012-2013/2015 (not confirmed, but one of my Army buddies was at a 2012 soundcheck & heard backing tracks playing through the soundboard for backing vocals even when nobody was near a microphone), Van Halen has never mimed to a backing track. Mötley Crüe have been caught doing so several times in recent years...I think Mick Mars confirmed recently that this has become a factor in live shows in recent years.

    Also, I'm a pretty big Mötley Crüe fan...but I would argue that Mötley have released a LARGE amount of sub-par albums throughout their career. For every TOO FAST FOR LOVE, there's a THEATER OF PAIN. For every SHOUT AT THE DEVIL, there's a GIRLS, GIRLS, GIRLS (sorry, I just feel that this album is pretty damn inferior to their best work).

    Also (and a lot of my Army brethren would want to punch me for admitting this), Sammy-era VH is better than Corabi-era Crüe (though I would take their one self-titled Corabi-era album over VAN HALEN III).

    It's also pretty embarrassing that Mötley Crüe made such a big deal out of doing a "farewell tour," with bullshit contracts signed in public that they would NEVER come back. And when they came back, they were much worse. They've been doing double-bills to sell more tickets, they've been relying more than ever on backing tracks...and they fucking kicked out Mick Mars. It stains their legacy.

    Also...most Mötley Crüe fans hate their 1997 Vince-reunion LP, GENERATION SWINE...but I have to admit, I love that album. I think it's the most ferocious album they had made in many years, I like a lot of the songs...and it was them trying something new. I know...most fans hate that album. But songs like A RAT LIKE ME (one of my all-time favorite Crüe songs), AFRAID and GLITTER get regular plays in my iTunes...whereas I rarely play anything from THEATER OF PAIN (except maybe LOUDER THAN HELL and another song or two).

    To be fair, Mick Mars announced he would not be touring anymore after the last one he was on, and Crue simply replaced him with John 5 and continued. And I think Mick might have some of the batshit crazy surrounding him, too
