    I'm not so sure about that...

    Dave said on The Roth Show (and I'm paraphrasing) that he heard the same things that we had heard...

    It's just a totally subjective thing.

    For me, back as far as 2012, Dave just wasn't cutting it for me live anymore in terms of fronting the Van Halen material, and since 2012 he has sounded progressively worse. That may well not be what others are hearing, re: subjective. It's not my place to say that others are incorrect in what they're hearing, the flip-side of that coin being that what I'm hearing isn't gonna be changed by what others are hearing. And taking in the allowances for age, the passing of Ed and the fact that Dave is (at least) still actually singing live rather than miming to pre-recorded tapes...none of that makes the result sound any better to me, regardless of how competent Dave's live backing group is on an instrumental level.

    Dave IS the face AND the voice of Van Halen. Agreed 100%. What else is there? With the passing of Ed, Dave is the last man standing in terms of carrying CVH forward in terms of live appearances. However, even of Dave's vocal approach sounded passable to me...between the multiple solo appearances I've seen since 1999 and the 2 Van Halen Mach 4 shows I saw...I've had my fill of The Classic Van Halen Experience Featuring David Lee Roth: I got out of all those shows what I wanted to get out of them in terms of hearing the CVH material live again. EVen if had, say, the CVH lineup managed to reunite for the proposed tour in 2019, it's doubtful I would have been willing to shell out what would have doubtless been premium prices to see that reunion at that point, as excited as I was over that prospect in 1996.

    I DO like what I've heard in terms of the solo studio stuff of Dave's that has made it on to the interwebs over the last half decade. I'd like to hear more of that, for fucking sure. Dave live in 2021 and beyond, singing CVH's greatest hits and coming up short? Nope.

    I got the impression Dave knew things serious enough to prevent touring/performing were happening... that may have just come through management channels without any personal details disclosed.

    Based on the responses Wolfgang has provided... it doesn't appear David was in any way in touch within the family circle dealing with Edward's final months on earth.

    As E mentioned... he learned of all this as we did.

    KI$$ were doing a complete Milli Vanilli so shouldn't be compared to Dave.

    Also the miming done by those acts contributes to the criticism people actually performing live are getting.

    Ok sorry I'm sounding like a broken record on this now...

    Hey... appreciate that fact you're old enough to have experienced a "broken record" in real life.

    Several years ago I was going through a box of my old albums from the 70's/80's and fixed my turntable and gave a few a spin. It's amazing the memories that flowed back and the pops, hisses and a skip you've heard hundreds of times 30-40 years ago were just a familiar as the song playing...

    Pretty cool. I always forget Dave can really play guitar. But then again his guitarist in VH was the best and likely showed him a trick or two
