    Agreed. I'm actually more critical of Dave's separatist sentiments in interviews and overall odd behavior than I am of his voice right now. While DTNA, Panama and Chinatown on Tokyo make me run for cover, the rest I can listen to. Will be interesting to see how this tour plays out.

      And therein lies the rub. Do I care about Gary Richrath splitting with REO Speed Wagon (apparently, decades ago, then again I recently read the Grateful Dead are still around this summer, despite Jerry Garcia's inconvenient dirt nap)? Not so much, as the band were reduced to playing live stock shows for an audience, pretty much where the Cherone fronted VH were headed, opening shows for David Hasselhoff autograph seekers at car shows. Fuck, talk credibility, the turds in Journey found their latest lead singer on YouTube, for shit's sake.

      I honestly don't care anymore, nor should any of us. How many of us have seen a clue-challenged coworker promoted or given a raise, while we have toiled away correcting that very moron's mistakes unnoticed nor acknowledged? It's life in a Dilbert cartoon, as is rock n roll.

            It was a joke Turd. If I was serious I'd have called you a hypocritical liberal too.
            BTW. Everything Eddie said in the 80s was funny. I've used that not enough so I OD hundreds of times. Once or twice before I actually did.

              Not necessarily. I'm sure Vic was a great busboy in Cabo when Sammy found him. It would definitely make sense considering his guitar playing ability.

                The internet is full of unqualified trash and for a media recluse band like Van Halen, they are in for the virtual attack, but seeing how hyper sensitive and butt hurt Hagar is, is a real treat. On his Facebook, he is posting a poll reminder so his crappy incarnation band can win the meaningless "Ultimate Classic Rock" contest posting him against Van Halen's live LP and made sure to post Guitar Player Magazine's article online which had a hack make excuses for Hagar's sales as if the Van Halen actual sales with Roth are not legit compared to his. I think if not only Roth, but Edward would make a belittling comment on Hagar on occasion in a nonchalant basis, he would end up in a psycho ward where he belongs

                  I'm with you there. He's been licking Samuel's ass for too long too. It's over Johnny.

                    He's no EVH but he played a more inspired set than Dave's guitarist did when I saw The Dave and Sam show in San Bernadino. Dave opened. Sam closed. IMO Brian Young did a great job playing the songs note for note but not enough ad libbing was done. He did what he did in the Punks. Imitated EVH. Vic played the songs without imitating EVH. I wish I could find videos of both bands from that show and listen to them again.
