David Lee Roth or Sammy Hagar?

Van Halen with Sammy Hagar were crap, just boring middle of the road american rock. All of their Hagar albums are shit, a couple of singles plus a whole bunch of filler. David Lee Roth is way better.

After seeing Van Hagar headlining the Monsters of Rock tour in 1988 at the Pontiac Silverdome, I have boycotted EVERYTHING Hagar has done!! He had the nerve to TALK the lyrics to "Running with the Devil" and "Jamies Crying"!! I was in complete disbelief screaming WHAT THE !! He completely BUTCHERED 2 of my favorite Van Halen songs. Alex and Eddie were too drunk/high to care apparently. I took it as a HUGE slap in the face to each and every old VAN HALEN fan in the audience. They even let Hagar perform some of his solo songs during that show and he still had the balls to do that? I lost all respect for him and refuse to listen to anything he does anymore.

Seriously, if Ripper had done something like that  (which he NEVER would have because he has too much respect for Priest), KK, Glenn, Ian and Scott would have dragged him off stage and pounded him until he SANG the songs CORRECTLY! But PRIEST has CLASS and RESPECTS their fans and took their time to find someone who could fill Rob's incredible shoes.

So for me, it's David Lee Roth! Sammy can take his huge ego and shove it!

i dont know, i like zakk wylde and his work with ozzy was great. but in my opinion his style is a little annoying because all the pinch harmonics just seem very unneccesary. EVH passes wylde by aLONG shot
[Diamond Jim] Wednesday, June 17, 2009 6:53:25 PM 
Left in the dust by Zakk Wylde????    Please, I don't think so. Eddie rules!!!! 
[Amboydukes] Wednesday, June 17, 2009 11:22:31 AM 
EVH WAS influential. WAS is key word. He has been left in the dust by the likes of Zakk Wylde an others. I believe EVH has lost his creativity. Give me the guitar work the Nugent does on the Craveman album any day of the week over anything EVH has done in 20 years.
[british.steel] Wednesday, June 17, 2009 11:15:38 AM 
and EVH isnt the greatest guitarist ever amboydukes, i agree with you. but i wouldnt call him boring, his style is unique and exciting. he is very very influential and the tapping is just awesome. i think their are many players better than him, such as K.K. downing, and Glenn Tipton, :)
[british.steel] Wednesday, June 17, 2009 10:34:24 AM 
Exactly! if Eddie Van Halen were to die or sumthin (which wouldnt happend cuz gods are immortal...hahah) they would have to stop. theres no replacing him, much like when Bohnam died in 1980, led zepppelin stopped. sure they have had a handful of concerts since, but u will never find another EVH, not even in a tribute band. lol
[Amboydukes] Wednesday, June 17, 2009 9:34:23 AM 
I think overall that VH was better with DLR than Hagar....but. VH with Hagar did a version of Wild Thing during a concert, that was recorded on King Biscuit Flower Hour and I believe can be found on an Import, that was awesome. EVH and Hagar traded off soloing and they out right jammed on it. This could not have been done with DLR. You can find VH with Hagar doing Wild Thing at other concerts but the one off of King Biscuit was the best. Also, please no one refer to EVH as the greatest guitarist ever. He has not done anhything on guitar worthy of that mantel since before DLR left the band. His guitarmanship now can best be described as BORING.
[Diamond Jim] Tuesday, June 16, 2009 9:47:14 PM 
Exactly british.steel!! Without Eddie Van Halen they would be nothing! He's the creative force behind the band. They were fine without DLR but if Eddie was not there they would be HIS-TO-RY!

Cool. Thats wild that he found out he had cancer and then his wife left him. But he can get any babe he wants. 

[Dime/UNDER BLOOD RED SKIES!!!!] Tuesday, June 16, 2009 6:03:54 PM 
Ya i just checked, Eddie was born in 55. He is 54 years young this year!
[Deep Freeze] Tuesday, June 16, 2009 6:00:03 PM 
I think it is in remission.

Yeah, I think he is. So is Eddie..somewhere in there. MAN! That hurts!! HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
