    Same here... I wish Dave would work with some true Blues artists and compose several happy, fun type tunes like that.

    Can't honestly say I have much...any, really...interest in seeing Dave fronting a traditional rock-combo band setup playing a setlist heavy on CVH material anymore.

    I get that is what butters the bread in terms of making the money and paying the bills, and if Dave still wants to go that route and people still want to see it, fair enough.

    The recent track Dave put out as a tribute to Eddie...more of that kind of stuff - stuff I haven't heard before - I'd be very interested in hearing. The CVH stuff...I'll listen to the original studio recordings or boots of the CVH era tours when I need my fix of that stuff: what Dave is gonna be able to do with that stuff now vs. then...frankly, now just doesn't measure up for me. No point in pretending it does or wishing it were otherwise.

    I agree that nothing Dave does going forward with CVH material will measure up without Ed, Alex... even Michael and to a certain degree Wolf.

    Much rather hear something new...

    I'm really at the point where...I'm not terribly interested in live stuff going forward in terms of what Dave does. At least not if it's a CVH setlist.

    Where Dave is at in terms of his ability, I tend to think he'd be best served - at least in terms of what I'd want to hear - concentrating on recording. He can take his time, do as many takes or edits as he needs to get the vocals sounding good...and it's not just rehashing CVH, which...I mean, I couldn't be bothered seeing the 2015 tour because what Van Halen were doing live by that point was already something I'd had my fill of in terms of seeing the band perform the old material.

    The problem for Dave is that in terms of an undertaking being lucrative, DLR solo isn't really a money-maker. His solo releases, infrequent as they have been since the early 1990s, haven't sold jack shit since YFLM. Masses of people just plain aren't interested in a Roth solo album, and haven't been in nearly 30 years. Doubtless the same applies to Roth as a live act: how many people would turn up for a Roth show these days unless he is playing a set heavy with CVH material along with his better-known solo stuff? Probably not even enough to fill a House Of Blues type venue in terms of capacity. None of this is a slam against Roth, but just the reality of it. It's probably why he's doing the KISS opening slot, in that he can get whatever guarantee he can command these days, doesn't have to do a full set and doesn't have to bring any known quantities in terms of his accompanying band to drum up interest that he would if he were trying to headline whatever size venues on the strength of his name as a solo act, rather than as a part of Van Halen.

    Perhaps the best I can hope for is Dave continues to come up with new stuff simply because he still has the desire or drive to, and we get to hear some of it online every now and then.

    Dave is a legend. He fronted one of the best bands in rock history. He was one of the best frontmen in history. He was a MTV video pioneer who made some of the best music videos when that medium mattered. He had a few great solo albums and the Eat Em and Smile tour was legendary.

    Would I see Dave now? I might.

    Motley Crue went from steady decline to stadium tour on the back of a straight to TV pretty mediocre movie.

    Ozzy was struggling to fill theaters before The Osbournes made Ozzfest viable.

    It's up to Dave, if he wants to do it he could do it again but he would need to jump onto the merry go round again.

    He would also need to consider cheating with the live performances as well.

    I watched a YouTube the other day of Guns N Roses from 2019 and it was ok, I would bet musically and vocally (although lacking the punk danger) the equal of that NYC gig that was on TV way back in the day when Appetite first came out.

    Most of the comments underneath were that it was a fucking disgrace, an embarrassment and so on. Axl hasn't aged well but close your eyes and it was an ok perfromance.

    I think a lot of people out there are just not used to how actual live rock music sounds stripped of overdubs, 50 backing singers and autotune as the act runs about a stage especially when recorded on a fucking phone...

    Yeah it would be cool if Dave did a Diamond Dave Festival that had a couple of bands play during a day. Dave could come out between acts and do his Shtick with the audience. Dave would be a great MC.

    Seems an opportunity for Dave to possibly reinvent his entertainment scope... shouldn't be much, if any, tethers from Van Halen restricting his options.

    One would think Roth doesn't "need" mega-paychecks headlining something on the scale of his recent Van Halen tours or even his Ki$$ openings. Vegas residences could supplement his income nicely I would assume...

    Release the John5 record... collaborate with some other artists... pay-per-view internet streaming events... more Roth Shows via the net...

    Dave's recent shows with KISS early last year were much better than he has been in some years.

    If all the other heritage acts are still out there - like Paul Stanley who croaks his way through songs and with added help (backing tracks) - then Dave can keep going as well.

    His set list has more hits and radio staple songs than KISS do anyway. So theres always a market out there to hear those songs.

    I would rather hear Roth as is than hear him go the way of vocal tracks and enhancements. I would go see an Eat-em reunion, preferably where they play the entire record but don't know how they would pull off That's Life with the orchestration.

    I do give Dave props for still actually turning in live vocal performances, regardless of how the results sound to me these days. Authenticity always prevails over various non-live/pre-taped enhancements far as live rock music goes to my ears.

    For how uneven his performance on the Tokyo Dome album was (and the 2012 US tour stuff), at the very least one can't say Roth was up there miming.

    For seemingly the majority of concertgoers these days, bands/artists lip synching to whatever degree is basically accepted. I can't say as I ever have accepted this new(ish) norm (new'ish' because it has been going on for...quite some time now...much longer than I'd either like to admit or care to know).

    I like rock music performed live in the flesh by the musicians onstage, and having only those onstage musicians actually creating the sounds I'm hearing as I'm hearing them.

    What the hell is the Godfather of Rock and Roll? Kids do love rock but, present company excluded, that doesn't necessarily mean they want to watch Twitchy Dave with his dystonic grin occasionally hit a note not entirely out of key. There's no merry go round he can jump onto that will turn him into a stadium act, sorry.

    I'd tend to think most if not everyone posting on this site knows Dave ain't gonna be headlining stadiums or arenas on the strength of his name alone as a solo act going forward.

    I mean, his last headlining arena tour as a solo act was...what...for the ALAE tour? So, literally thirty years ago?

    Any large venues he has done since then were either as a solo act with a performing slot among many other bands/groups at a festival, or as an opening act a la Bad Company in 1999 or KISS in 2020, or the Sam and Dave co-headlining tour in 2002 or fronting Van Halen from 2007 through 2015.

    What the hell is the Godfather of Rock and Roll? Kids do love rock but, present company excluded, that doesn't necessarily mean they want to watch Twitchy Dave with his dystonic grin occasionally hit a note not entirely out of key. There's no merry go round he can jump onto that will turn him into a stadium act, sorry.
    I've asked a few millennials and they tend to think that Dave a AOK and Classic Van Halen was far superior. Some have taste in music, unlike you douchebag...

    If getting old negates your legacy, you have a lot of guys out there that must suck because they didn't choke on their vomit or OD...

    If you look down the current Spotify list of popular Van Halen songs it's about 80% Roth 20% Hagar.

    I mean, shit, it's been a quarter century since the 1996 debacle.

    25 years.

    At least I've put them to good use...spending thousands of hours posting about how Sammy Hagar is mundane...

    Ah, well...maybe in the next life I won't fritter my time away.

    Unfortunately, Hagar didn't choke on his vomit or OD. He just made others choke on their vomit...
