Not to be aggressive but did you like the Van Halen / Sammy years?
It is well-known that I liked them individually but not together save for "Get Up." Twas hard for me to boycott Priest without Halford but I just couldn't stand it. Not to badmouth Ripper nor you. Like you said, some simply liked it, some didn't. I am most certainly in the "didn't" camp. Tough as everyone knows that I think they are the greatest band to have walked the planet!
Kewl tix, BTW. Thanks for showing them off (even if you didn't come and say "hello" at PINE KNOB, MI. LOL!). I got a real kick out of seeing how your seats changed over the years and venues. The changes over the years. Were I to post all mine, you'd see a funny progression: lawn, closer, closer, first row! That is a sign of age, I suppose, for good or bad.

Some like Ripper, some don't.
Considering Rob bailed on them and there was no Priest,
I'm glad they were able to find him.
As a replacemant I think he did just fine.
