He doesn't look horrible, not since he got his hair cut, anyways. He looks good and healthy these days. His voice has gone a bit, but he's, what? 51 now? Still a good frontman, and still drinks about 10 bottles of Jack Daniels on stage each night!

It's Dave Or The Grave, folks, to hell with Hagar.

I have not seen him in a few years. But when he did come on stage with the originals back at the awards he looked really bad, not the kinda guy that can get pretty easy like he did back in the 80's. I do like his solo CD, skyscraper, just like paradice is a great song, so was he remakes, calinfonria girls and just a gigalo
sammy is a OK solo artist, he has some nice songs and did some good songs with van halen, IMO he was better then the extreme singer they got, with Van halen David fit the bill and any one trying just failed, you were used to seeing david as the lead singer he added a lot of life to an otherwise boring band, when I seen Van Halen live with sammy, they opened up with a fucking Ballad...what a way to start a concert, when Van halen w david toured near where I lived they opend with a rocker, my uncle went to that show and said it rocked. now the show I seen pretty much was like a cover band with a great guitar player.

The great thing about Dave is, he has NEVER done a ballad. He is a 24 hour summertime party guy!!

I have to say that Sammy Hagar has a stronger voice than David Lee Roth, but yet David Lee Roth has such a distinctive voice that has given Van Halen a trademark of it's own, so although I like both I'll pick David Lee Roth.

As a person though I happen to dislike David Lee Roth, he's nothing but a rock star with a diva attitude and that's why he couldn't last with Van Halen. Even worse than that, when David Lee Roth was hired Dave back in 1996 he lasted just a couple of months after a backstage fight with Eddie Van Halen at the MTV Awards.

You seem to diss Sammy Hagar like if he was the one who destroyed Van Halen, so let me remind you that it was David Lee Roth was the one who decided to leave Van Halen in his own terms. Van Halen was still a strong band with Hagar, although not as strong as it was with David Lee Roth.

Van Helsing...:P Loll

I prefer Van Cherone :P

Van Halen with David Lee Roth was great.

Van Halen with Sammy Hagar was good.
I loved them.
I mean, the "Balance" album was great !

I've only heard one song from Van Halen with Gary Cherone and that was "Jump" and he was great !
Recorded live.

I love all of them, but creatively, it was the "David Lee Roth" period that stands out.
Just awesome Van Halen.

Keep on rockin' ! Dan.

If you read Dave's book (Crazy From The Heat) he explains why he left VH. In 1996 the VH sisters fucked with Dave from the beginning. They wouldn't even let him in the studio to record the 2 new songs. They put him in a seperate room and gave him headphones and a microphone. The reason he originally left VH was because, after '1984', the sisters and Spam's lover, bass player Mike Anthony, wouldn't get together to make the next album, they were all in different parts of the world, and kept pushing back the date for the first rehearsal. So, Dave released his 'Crazy From The Heat' EP. Then, so that he was doing something, he made a video for 'California Girls'. He was still waiting, so he made a video for 'Just A Gigolo'. Still waiting, so he LEFT. Why should he wait around for the rest of the band when he's got all that material waiting to be recorded?

It's also a well-known fact that EVH is a major alcoholic, and that he could hardly play on last years failure of a tour. Last years tour lost so much money for promoters, so much that they now refuse to promote VH with Spam in the band. It's also a well-known fact that Spammy Haggis started the fued between him and Dave by slagging him off every chance he gets.

With Spam, VH turned into a pop band that enjoyed ballads. That wasn't what VH were about-they were a party band.

Considering I saw "Van Hagar" I tend to like VH with Hagar better. He's more musician than Roth. David Lee is just too cocky for me to stand. My mother saw David Lee in '88 and loves him and we always bitch whose better... :-)

Samuel wins
for the montrose album
and the early hagar solo stuff
but most of all - because he added something to van halen, while rothschild was busy shagging and drinking his creativity to death

and (as the eunuch said to the actress) i have nothing against the idea! - of drinking and shagging - but lets face it dave was so boringly predictable in this department

David Lee Roth was great, and so was Sammy Hagar...but it's Gary 'Whats His Name?' who really sucks, the album Van Halen 3 is totally shit house, much worse than any thing Sammy did with them. But yes The David Lee Roth era was the best.

That's a very one sided version of the story.

If David Lee Roth truly went through all of this, he would have never agreed to come back with Van Halen in 1996.
Now, I'm not blaming David Lee Roth completely because Eddie Van Halen happens to be an over controlling freak and he'd take matters straight to the heart whenever someone disagreed with him. Each one of those guys have their share of blame.

For me it will always be Van Halen with David Lee Roth as they were the first band I ever saw live as support to Black Sabbath
