Subject: Van Halen ( What Ya Think Of Them ? )

Written By: Xonnie316 on 09/05/04 at 11:55 am

Well I just simply find this band pure 80s or what,

David Lee Roth days of course ruled,

Well there songs :

Jump
Panama
Running With The Devil
Dance The Night Away
Unchained
Hot For The Teacher


Well few years ago when there was a Van Halen Reunion on MTV, I was just simply blown away, but then I heard the bad news that they got in bad terms again,

I just went on their official site, and Sammy Hagar is back with them and they are on tour,

On there new double cd greatest hits cd, they have few new songs,

So what ya think of Van Halen,

Agreed... I think Van Halen was a better sounding rock band with David Lee, he epitomized 80's hair metal. Not to take anything away from Sammy, I like him and all he's just no David Lee Roth when it comes to singing his arse off whilst bouncing around all over the stage.

I only know Van Halen with David Lee Roth (Jump and the cover of Beach Boy's California Girls are great tracks).

Bobby I don't wanna be an asshole but the Beach Boy's California Girls was a David Lee Roth song not Van Halen, but its okay, just correcting. It was a cool song.

Now as for all of ya, I infact agree with all of you guys,

David Lee Roth with Van Halen was a different story compared to Sammy Hagar.

I like them with both DLR and Sammy Hagar...hubby has all their cd's, and I can listen to any of them and enjoy it.  I do like some of the earlier stuff, of course--and hubby prefers them with DLR..but I really liked a lot of what they did with Sammy. 

Though, I must confess I didn't care for the stuff they did with Gary Cherone (?) (the guy from Extreme)

Funny I should see this tonight--because I swear I just read that they were back with Sammy today too! I just thought it was me being "behind the times"! ;)  I'm debating on getting the newest CD for hubby for Christmas, since he has all the others..but read that it was okay but an "unnecessary album".. :-\\

I liked them up until 1983 then after that I lost interest in them somewhat after the early 90's when Sammy Hagar joined the group.

So,why did Sammy and David argue about the name Van Halen in the early 90's? Did they sue for something?  ???

I just saw Van Halen in Columbus about 2 months ago.  They were awesome!  I've always liked Van Halen (whether it was Sammy or Dave - Gary Cirrone doesn't count).  I like elements that each guy brought to the band.  In 2004 though, I would rather see them with Sammy.  David Lee Roth is nothing more than a parody of his old self these days.  :-\\

   I saw Van Halen with Dave in 1984 and they were as bad as it gets. Swigging iced tea from a Jack bottle...guitar solo... bass solo... drum solo... fake improv and banter amongst a band that obviously hated each other and a tired album of songs (Hot for friggin' Teacher?!) That ruined it for me.

   Sammy was great. Had some great songs and two good albums. Then they got tired. Years have passed and just the other day I heard "Everybody Wants Some" while I was driving home late. I started to drive fast, really fast. I didn't see the construction signs and the next thing I know I am in a ditch being summoned down a long white hall by an old Indian.  I lived but I'm in a wheelchair now which I control with a straw. Oh how I hate them both now...

Have you heard DLR as a radio DJ, he really has a gift for gab.

David Lee Roth has recently brought court action against Van Halen, their management, and record company in 2003, claiming he was left out of 1996 royalty renegotiations.

In the summer of 2002, David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar teamed up for the "Heavyweights of Rock," or 'Sans-Halen' Tour. Bassist Michael Anthony joined both Hagar and Roth onstage.

I liked the videos after Van Halen broke up with David Lee Roth when he went on his own with the"Just A Gigolo"video and that video had people who looked like Boy George,Billy Idol,Willie Nelson.So,what was he actually saying in the song? ;D

Umm... ok...

VH with Dave was the best. The Sammy years just didn't do it for me. Fair Warning is STILL their best album :)

The late 1970's and early 1980's were pretty good years for Van Halen but after that they lost their traditional VH sound. :P

Running With The Devil and Dance The Night Away are from the 70's....As for the band, I have always personally liked Sammy bteer and consider he and Roth quite different. I think they are two completely different bands hence I like to call them Van Hagar now! I really got into VH and have seen Van Halen live in 1979 and 1980....and I've seen "Van Hagar" once, in 1992. I like both bands but lean a little towards Sammy :)
