i was at sammy's bar in cabo wabo and got all jacked up on his tequila during the day none the less.  missed my corporate party and almost the flight the next day home, that was in 2001, have not had it since but it was good.

i think DLR is a clown but an ok one, sammy is much better in my opinion.  i usually turn off DLR songs on the radio and turn up sammy songs.

They lost their orig sound w/ sammy. put two super groups together and you can get big hits, commercial though. Honestly, I don't care for one samhalen song. from the first corny song why can't this be love? I always said why can't this be dave? and not crap like that. you guy's like that?

Never liked any of the VanHagar stuff. I liked Hagar on his own, Three lock box album was one of my favorites.

Yeah, I liked the part where Alex face-planted in the driveway after shotgunning a pack of Shlitz. What a DA!!! hahaha! It's only a matter of time before the Van Halens' are living under the care of the State; They could go bankrupt in a 7-11.

That is a good read for anyone, fan or not. I know guitarists that have read Valerie's book just to read what she said about Ed, lol.

I'm reading Ace Frehley's book right now; It's good so far. I've read Gene's, and it was very good. Ronnie Wood's book was good as was Clapton's. Ozzy's book is so dang funny (during the Sabbath years) that I'd bury my face in the pillow laughing to keep from waking my wife. If you're thinking about Keith Richard's book, wait until you can get it for $.05 on Amazon, and maybe a serious surgery or a broken leg. On page 100 the tool was still in elementary school...

And Burd, you're right about them losing the style, and there's no bigger fan than me. The DLR stuff is the soundtrack of my teenage years. I did like the Sammy stuff, just not the radio hits...

I guess it's like anything else, what you grew up with,  or maybe the songs you threw up with!

What's missing from this band?  The bass player.  He plays with VH now  ;D

I like VH either way singer-wise, but can't stand a kid with his britches pulled down like some little punk up on stage with VH.
