    What's your assessment of Dave's vocals? He's sounded really good on the vids. I'd assume he'd sound good live too, but there is a difference between the vids and live for sure.

    I'm seeing them back to back in a month and I can't wait. This tour has really been great so far.

    Considering his age and abilities and the fact that there is no such thing as a 10, Dave got a 9 from me. Not including the many, many screams. He was great. As good as The Meadowlands in '07 if not better.

    My assessment is I came too realize he is an old guy !! I mean that's just a fact. I honestly think he is doing his best. And I judge that by his swagger he is bringing to the show's. I just thought he was going through the motion's on the 2012 tour. A lot of people thought he was sick on that tour. Maybe it was true ? He was coughing up a storm and sucking on lemons when I saw them. Then Ed got sick. They should stay out as long as they can IMO. Why not ?? Stay out there and entertain people. Do it while you can. If we get another album/tour or both I will be surprised. And when will that be ?? Not the fast worker's the once were !! LOL !!

We pay our bill, go the door to grab a couple shot glasses, and Bach comes out at the same time, telling his friends they're going down to the Viper Room.....

    Then we walked down the block to Whisky.... Really surprising how small the place is, given the historical significance of the place... Envisioned VH blowing that place up back in the day (no, I did NOT envision Van Hagarita there).... Some lame band was playing, and loud....

    Anyway, great to hang with Jay, as it has been for the other Army members I've met over the years.....


    Great to finally meet you too, bro. Good times. And now you can verify how close I actually live to Howdy-Doody mountain..lol! Toldja the Whiskey was small - so is the Roxy, the Troubadour, all the hallowed Hollywood clubs. The biggest stage was probably Gazarri's, and you saw what that place has turned into. Even more funny that had my gf been able to get a babysitter, she was coincidentally on the list +2 for the show Sebastian was going to at the Viper Room...(which is also a tiny, albeit famous, hole in the wall) - we could have checked it out. The name of the band escapes me at the moment, but I hear good things, and Bas wanting to check them out is probably also a good sign. I'll ask her their name again..

    I was hoping you'd have at least one celeb sighting while we were there, but it was kinda early L.A. time. Glad you did.


    But yeah VA, had a blast, great to see ya. We'll have to do it again next time you're in L.A.!

    That's cool. I was just at all those places in June. Didn't realize JHale was that close. Did you see the Van Halen brick in the wall of the Rainbow Va?

    The YouTubes really don't do it justice...Dave sounds amazing! Better than '07-'08 and definitely better than '12. He's really loose and comfortable up there. The ultimate showman. Hysterical and badass. Saw them 4 times and he's been better and better with each show. I have one more to go. Wish I had more. Can't seem to get enough!

    Anyone seen/read any "pro" reviews for the 8/15 show? I'm curious because I thought Dave sounded great, so if any review bitches about his vocals, I'd really like to know how he could've been better.

    Man, what a great night! There is some real magic happening on stage with these guys. I don't think the camaraderie is put on. There is a mutual appreciation to where they are that is evident. And to all those who counted Dave out...the screams, the swagger. He is once again proving what a bad ass he is on that stage.

    Why waste the brain cycles..?

    He's 60... he's survived all life has thrown at him and entertained well for over 40 years. He can pull off a 2+ hour intense rock-n-roll performance and doesn't need to hit an oxygen tank... seems he's fine enough to me without fussing over smoking...

    He's still off on some stuff. Like Dance The Night Away. But I think it is senseless criticism for the most part. But on the other hand HE is the one doing it & doesn't have too. I swear when he hit's that upper register he is almost trying too rush the song or something. He did it on a few lines of Romeo also. No way he is as good as 07/08, but it's close too his best singing overall. It is what it is. Dave at 60 !!! Thought he was great on most everything else. 2 show's here ? Take the best of both and give us a god dam dvd already !!! I love the swagger and revealing stories he's been sharing. Great stuff !! Great tour.
