Of all the Hard Rock bands on the Planet, I had to pick VH as my favorite. I purchased my 1st VH album back in 1980. It was the Spring release of WACF. VH was always known for Spring and Summer tours and VH music always sounded great on hot Summer days. Well it's been 2o years since DLR era VH blasted through the Summer air waves. I understood that nothing stays the same and things change so I tried to give this Van Hagar thing a chance but it wasn't happening. Original VH was really what the doctor ordered because it was straight forward balls to the wall Rock And Roll. Van Hagar was Journey and Reo Speedwagon wrapped up in a giant candy wrapper.

Kinda like premature ejaculation, huh???


I certainly hope you're right. Great post, many good points in there. I always think about what kind of music has been held back and I do get pissed off. But, I love the first six and will be happy with that. Not to mention all of DLRs solo stuff.

I hope, like you do, that in time we'll get some of the live goods.
