    I'd rather have Michael A. and the bros. doing instrumentals then both Lee Roth and Sammy trading lead duties on stage.


    Michael makes that band...his foundation and vocals are so distinct.

    I saw DLR at the tour he did with Sammy about 5 years ago. Time has had its toll. Forgive me if I don't get too excited.

    I thought Eddie was looking like some 78 year old babuska these days.


    The most horrible sounds I have ever heard at a concert were undoubtably the Michael Anthony bass solo at a VH show back in 1991. Five minutes of hell. Thank god I didn't have to pay for that ticket.

    To be fair, cancer can be hard on the body, as if he wasn't hard enough on it already.

    Sammy is 1000000000000x more talented, but classic DLR is unmatchable in energy and showmanship.


    Since none of those dudes can do high kicks anymore, like I said...I'd rather see an instrumental tour w/ Michael.

    That 5150 tour was the last good VH show, ever. Thank god they taped it! Go watch Eddie and Sammy battle on guitar. Great stuff.

    Day-um. This is the first I've seen of this.

    Guess I'll still try to find someone to go see Alison Krauss with me instead.

    I still feel that the first Van Halen album was one of the greatest rock 'n roll albums of all time....bar none. Eruption, IMHO, still stands as the end-all/be-all of unaccompanied guitar solos....there are many, many, many other guitarists who can play circles around Eddie, but he just got EVERYTHING right in that 1 minute and 42 seconds....notes, feel, tone, timing, structure, etc. One aspect of his playing that most everyone seems to forget or overlook is his ability to actually write songs/rythym guitar - that's his real strong suit.

    With all that being said....it's sorta like going to see a Metallica show now. They're past their prime. Time to move on .

    It sucks, I got into Metallica a decade ago when I first heard them play with the SF orchestra on NPR, and my parents told me to go to a Metallica concert when I was older because they sure as hell didn't want to take me. Not much I could do at 11 or 12. Thing was, even just a few years after I got into them, they started sucking so hard I wouldn't go to one of their shows if you paid me. But dang they made some good stuff in their day.

    I'd read elsewhere that the choice was not Anthony's, but rather the VH brothers. IOW, Michael was ****canned. Then again, I shouldn't believe everything I read on the interweb.

    Your info is probably right. According to some reports I have read, Eddie's 16 year old son, Wolfgang, will play bass.
    Would you like a dream with that?
