definatley Sammy Hagar. The band was able to do some really cool stuff with Sammy playin guitar. He also had a cool voice. I think they did better ballads when he came in, and I'm a sucker for a good rock love song :oops:

David Lee Roth for me, as he was the frontman when Van Halen released 1984 and I just love that album! Sammy Haggar isn't too bad though.

Diamond Dave all the way. No doubting it, Sammy was great too. Many good songs come from both singers, but I prefer the wilder days with Roth more than the days with Sammy.

When I was about 8, Skyscraper, Dave Lee Roth's solo album, came out.  I was a huge fan, had that on CD and 1984 on tape.  Listened to them CONSTANTLY. 

I was going to write to Jim'll Fix It because I wanted to meet DLR.  :oops:

I like David Lee Roth the best as a singer.  I don't really like him as a person.

That's my opinion as well.

Sammy Hagar was on a late night show last night, He's crazy. I think he spend to much time in the sun and tequila

Well since Sammy is in affiliation with VH, I think I'll post the news here instead of a new topic. If you already didn't know, Sammy Hagar and The Waboritas have a new album out. It came out on the 25th. It's called "Livin' It Up". I have yet to buy it but I plan to. This is old now since it's already been released but worth a  look anyway:

Does it depress anyone else that one of the greatest, most influential guitar players of our lifetimes is currently writing music for porno flicks?

Come on man, put out a fucking solo album at least. Something worthy of your talent...

To be honest no it doesn't- I was pretty stoked when i heard that Eddie had released two new songs, like Captian Tophat said Eddie has gone almost axl since the break with Sammy Hagar in 96 only one tour and 5 new songs happend in the space from 96 to 04.

so i see this as a good chance for Eddie to get the wheels rolling again and releasing some more new stuff tour again..

one of the reasons that Eddie hasn't been mentioned in recent years was due to him having Mouth/Throat Cancer which he took a brake from to recover

INtersting stuff :o
A few days ago we reported on Eddie Van Halen’s recent radio interview with Howard Stern, but nothing but a transcription can capture the true insanity of this exchange — it’s taken us hours and hours just to process Van Halen’s vitriolic comments about David Lee Roth, Sammy Hagar and how his 15-year old son Wolfgang is a better bass player than Michael Anthony. Let’s go straight to the highlights:

On curing his tongue cancer without chemo or radiation:

Eddie Van Halen: “I cured my cancer in a way that’s not exactly legal in this country. I’d tell you, but I don’t want to go to jail. When you drink your damn draino it just holds it at bay. It comes back. Cancer is like a cockroach. It just comes back stronger. I’m tearing apart the immune system of the cockroach and seeing how it ticks. I’ve opened up my own pathology center. Some of us open tequila bars in Mexico, I’m curing cancer. They cut a healthy piece of my tongue off and grew healthy cells outside of my body and tested them. I’m missing a third of my tongue. They butchered me. I didn’t quit smoking after I got tongue cancer cause smoking didn’t cause it.”

On a possible reunion with David Lee Roth:

HS: “Diamond David Lee Roth never wanted piano in Van Halen.”
EVH: “You mean cubic zirconia?”
HS: “You’re never going to do a reunion with him, are you?”
EVH: “Ummm…You know, I’m open to anything.”
HS: “Really? He makes it seem like you are never open…”
EVH: “In 2000 Alex and I tried to pull something together with him.”
HS: “What happened? You couldn’t stand being around him?”
EVH: “No, the guys’s a loose cannon - but I can deal with loose cannons.”
Robin: “Everyone says you’re the problem.”
EVH: “Yeah, because I don’t respond or talk about this stuff.”

On Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony’s current Sans Halen tour:

EVH: “Michael Sobolewski [Michael Anthony’s real last name] is out touring with ‘the little red rocker’ … I mean the little red worm. I got no problem with these guys, but they’re billing themselves as the other half of Van Halen. My brother is the other half of Van Halen. They’re out there selling hot sauce and tequila and playing all my songs. It doesn’t bother me. It just makes them a cover band.”

On the porno movie he wrote two songs for:

EVH: “I don’t call it porn. I call it sex. It’s like Braveheart with a cum shot. Everyone’s giving me their dweeb opinion about this - but without sex you wouldn’t be here to give me your dweeb opinion.”

On his new girlfriend:

EVH: “I have a girlfriend. Her name’s Janie. She’s a press agent…You’re damn right she’s super hot. We met at a press conference. We’ve been together two months.”

On his fifteen-year-old son Wolfgang joining Van Halen:

EVH: “My son Wolfgang plays drums, guitars and bass. This kid is fucking dangerous. If I excel at the speed of sound, he excels at the speed of light. My brother goes, ‘This is the first time I’ve had bass in my headphones.’ He’s only fifteen years old and he’s getting laid. He’s spanking it too.”
HS: “How do you know that?”
EVH: “When you spend 45 minutes in the bathroom you’re not taking a shower. … Valerie and I have joint custody of Wolfgang. For the last couple of weeks Alex, he and I have been jamming together.”
HS: “You wouldn’t go back on the road with Hagar, would you?”
EVH: “I’m pretty much open to anything. What’s going to happen is that there’s a new member of Van Halen, and that is my son.”
HS: “I’m hearing your son is in and Michael Anthony is out.”
EVH: “My son is in and Sobolewski can do whatever he wants. The name Van Halen, the family legacy, is going to go on long after I’m gone. This kid is just a natural. I’m going to have him play on a solo record, and it’s going to be out - he and I.”
