Better tweets are coming now, although one asshole tweeted fuck you Wolfgang. Of course I tweeted back that he wouldn't have seen Eddie tonight if it wasn't for Wolf.

I don't understand why Spam fans go... I boycotted the fucking band the entire time that idiot was with them. Why do they spend $ on something they don't like?? Never mind, just remembered - they have the same intelligence level as their hero.

Damn I'm glad I'm a DLR fan...means I'm really smart. :D

It's the typical internet shit. You can randomly pick any YouTube and read the comments on the video and it always degrades into fight. What I found interesting was after that whole Jesse James scandal broke out, Jesse said he was the most hated man in the US. The guy interviewing him asked if he got any threats and Jesse said not to his face. He goes, people say all sorts of shit on the internet but come on, come say it to my face. He said nobody ever came up to him and slagged him in his face like they did on the internet.

The only sites that don't devolve into a slag fest are the ones that are dealing with a specific subject matter and people are going there to share ideas and to learn. I have a couple classic cars that I sometimes have to fix something on and I go to the websites regarding these type of cars and everyone is really good about helping each other out. I never see anyone abusing anyone else on those type of sites and frankly I'm amazed at how much effort people put in to help others and what's available for free.

Sites dealing with entertainment seem to have the worst offenders.

There seems to be totally obsessed fans who have an unhealthy level of obsession to where it's a mental illness. I mean Stephen King wrote Misery based on that phenomenon. A lot of fucked in the head people hang around entertainment chat rooms.

For such a sleepy show thread it sure is an Errector!

If Bottoms Up was played and again gets shot out Sat., that and Light Up the Sky at SoundCheck will easily make it OK for me to feel the ADKOT massage was Nothing but a Happy Ending!

Like drinking a Coke at Pepsi center? They cover up labels due to some contractual agreement. Happens a lot with more than just drinks. If a company is putting huge money into a facility they wanna make sure no one else gets any publicity. Eddie drinking from a labeled drink on stage is pretty big endorsement. All the youtube views, photo views, etc. We are talking potentially millions of eyes seeing that brand name.

That corporate turf war can get beyond stupid. My brother in -law got laid off and so he drove a Frito-Lay truck and stocked store shelves until he found a better job. In his employment contract it was stated that he could be fired for using any Coca-Cola products. I mean that's pretty stupid and unrealistic.

This place and each prior format has been the only board I've ever signed up for for what is it now 15 years.

After reading links show thread, not only does it clarify the obvious it's harder to understand how the peeps even log in.
Black/white, good/bad, up/down and pussy cock. Least here the cock typically enters the pussy....
Swear, you want to get fired up, read a few threads and when you really want a place as CVH possible, there is only one place to discuss our supposive appreciation, love and support for =VH=

Boggles how so many just bitch, we're lucky we've come this far!!!
Just 5 years ago not only were we floating in someday purgatory, we were about out of hope, today we're two tours in and the official VH site does not even acknowledge anything but six pack and ADKOT. This may be winding down, enjoy All while we can.......yes a broken record-can't compute.........

It seems like people have been tough on Dave this tour. I mean I didn't like the head set and he ditched it. People get on him about his dancing and stuff or his singing could be better. Considering what a party animal that guy was and the cocaine I'm amazed he's in as good of shape as he is. People say Dave is weird. Well duh, what was your first clue? Dave always sailed in on all his Hollywierd glory. I mean what do people want? Dave to get back into a spandex suit and war paint and hump Eddies leg during the solo?

It would be pretty funny if just one song he shut them up wearing Diver Down Chaps or '80 Invasion wrist to ankle bright yellow tiger spandex where he also bleached his hair white for the shows here which created a WTF look to all Ina cool way only He could pull off. Guess won't get Bottoms Up confirmation till am, it's 1:30 here so be sweet dreams anyway.

I love Dave....but he obviously is having issues with the voice. Don't know if surgery is needed or what but at this point it's the elephant in the room. If people aren't recognizing that then their in denial. No doubt in my opinion the best front man all time....but father time may be catching up. May need those vocal chords fixed up a bit.

Watching these videos feels like Dave woke up yesterday and said people don't won't to hear me sing they want me to be DLR! Sounds as spontaneous and belligerent as the old days, That is what makes the show fun. If I want to hear precision singing there are endless bands and plays for that, Dave being in your face MotherFucker is looking like he may bring out the #7 Sat night. Really if the band moved from script spots some and Dave keeps this shit up were in for another level, dare I say Ed and Wolf run the stage wild at cost of missing a note or will that cause another uprising.

I love Dave....but he obviously is having issues with the voice. Don't know if surgery is needed or what but at this point it's the elephant in the room. If people aren't recognizing that then their in denial. No doubt in my opinion the best front man all time....but father time may be catching up. May need those vocal chords fixed up a bit.

Something seems a miss for sure... but what I find more concerning is A/C off and performing under all those lights in leather pants and jacket. It's June for fucks sake... although SJ had a high of 67 yesterday it's still summer time on the calendar. Clearly Dave was sweating his ass off in the Bottoms Up videos. It just doesn't add up...

I think at this stage of the game, it's safe to say the majority of folks in here would like the middle ground between spontaneous & belligerent and sounding closer to the records. He walked that line perfectly in '07/'08. He's been a little hit and miss this time out due to both father time and some odd arrangement choices. Still the best, though.

I hear you. For me I really rather have a rocky road with all the speed bumps and that kinda feeling can only be captured with the risk seen last night. Some said Dave's been singing too high, well he went Low last night and just him and band having that much fun is when the good times roll on to the audience. If overall good time comes at the cost of perfect performance I'm buying when it comes to VH.

Well maybe this is why they want to take a break?! Dave is singing his arse off every other night? So be it. If there is a problem, perhaps the break will provide him some downtime he needs.

As far as an audience, This is EXACTLY why I didn't want to go to see VH in SAN JOSE - they love Hagar down there. If they truly walked out, they are a disappointment bunch that does not have the class that SF/Oakland has anyway. Not surprised.

The rock stations in San Jose (the old KSJO) play alot of Van Hagar. But look, San Jose is NO San Francisco - that's like comparing Apples to Kumquats - in San Jose they Can't Drive 55, whereas in SF, they are too cool for school.

If you wanna see a concert with a thunderous crowd, go to the Oakland Coliseum and stay in the North Bay! (I'm sure I'll here crapola for this...LOL!)

Yeah, I have to agree with the folks who are saying that Dave's voice is not sounding very good. He seemed off during the first couple of shows, and then got much stronger... but now seems to be wavering again. A break could help a lot. It's painful to listen to some of this stuff. Fortunately, his showmanship is still as good as ever.

Honestly, I was fortunate enough to see them 3 times on this tour.....both MSG shows were pheomenal and the second was the better of the two. Saw them in A.C. also which wasn't their strongest show but all 3 shows, Dave's voice sounded great. Maybe they just need to take a breather. It's too bad age catches up to the best of us cuz the band is melting faces nightly. I'll still take Dave over any other front man out there....I just hope he can get his voice rested and straightened out. I can't help feeling if he didn't strain the shit out of it forcing the high register, perhaps his voice would be in better condition. Either way, I am really hoping we haven't seen the last of this amazing band.

I have a feeling he is painfully aware as are the rest of them. But the trooper he is/they are keep going. I am sure he will do whatever it takes to get it fixed and is looking forward to resting..I hope he does not get discouraged if he does view them.

Even with this hopefully temporary less than perfect voice, I am super glad I saw 3 shows this tour. If I was geographically closer to any of the upcoming dates, I would go again in a heartbeat. When you are there, it is so great to be at the show.

Just watched someone's youtube video of "Unchained" - much different start than we've been used to...they all come on almost at the same time so there's no lag time anymore vs thunderous applause when the man comes out a little bit delayed like we're used to...just sayin'

1st post, I was at the Shark Tank last night I have been to many shows there and the sound is the worst always has been so I expected it
musically the band was tight Eddie played like he was 23 again he played great!
Dave put on a great show love DLR but like fourthcoming said and like I told my brother either everyone is in denial or this is why the break is coming
Dave's voice was beyond bad I want to see VH continue but if Dave can't get help for his voice call it quits
I would love to see Ed play in another venue the Shark Tank sucks for concerts

Back in the old days Dave had a that little echo type of effect that would boost in at parts. Is his vocal mix too dry this tour. Dunno, just thinking out loud so to speak.

I brought that up in the tour disappointments thread, though, not as a disappointment, but a possible solution. He didn't need the crazy echo back then but it helped flesh out screams and such. Now, added echo/delay could give a guy an extra second or two to catch a breath. These sets are no doubt, physical work outs.

Hopefully Dave will get rested up and if there is a problem, get it addressed/fixed. But I'd still rather see Dave using sign language fronting VH, than that cheese eating, rum peddling, tequila pimping woman they had before...

They played Bottoms Up!!!! Nice, oddly enough, I suggested to my cover band at monday night's rehearsal that we cover that song.

When I jammed with these guys over 22 - 24 years ago we used to play that one, and a few other sweet VH gems.

Well it's a new one getting going based on one from a long time ago. I used to jam with the guitarist and drummer over twenty years ago and those kids can certainly play it!!!! The name as of now is Mr. Softee......and humor is a good thing!!!

We just began gigging.....prob central jersey for now and see how it builds.....

Doing Zep, early aerosmith, Dave era VH, Beatles, STP, Sabbath, Ozzy, AIC, and many bands ZZ TOP, queen, Stones, motorhead, metallica, nirvana, ramones, pistols, clash, qotsa, lizzy, yadda yadda.....foo fighters, etc etc.......older stuff.....and working our way into new[ish]............but doing what we want......deeper cuts etc.........the geetar player is pretty dang good i must say.....

It is clips like that breakdown in th emiddle.. where Dave pulls away from the competition and proves he is the MASTER frontman. There isn't a close second. I LOVE when he is 'on'... that is what makes Dave, Dave... and makes seeing him live worthwhile... we certainly want his voice 100% but if it came at the price of him losing what makes him him like in this video... I think we would all prefer a little rough voice and classic Dave than anything else.

Hey - can you guys rehearse either LUTS or Sinner's Swing before the next show?!

My brother went to the show with a buddy of his. They said you could see Dave on the side of the stage sucking on lemons.

I still think from watching the videos of this show that Dave needs to start taking the music and the singing more seriously.

On "Bottoms Up" he came in too early during the break and started singing the "Com Mum, Mum, Mum, Ma Baby, Bottoms Up" part.

Usually, Eddie plays the riff thru first and then everyone gets to "help" out the band and sing along!

I dunno. Dave has better figure something out quick or he will probably get himself "fired".

In fact Im wondering if its not Dave (besides his voice) who's having health issues here.
