Curious to know if Donaldson still has high regards for 5150.

I never skipped a show because I was drunk.  In 1984 I was getting burnt on all my old favorite bands...I could sense the writing on the wall and things were changing....the edge was gone from a lot of the 70's rock bands....clearly my feelings were right because over the next 2 or 3 years.....everyone started wearing spandex and writing pretty crappy music.

the main reason I passed on seeing DLR solo was I hated their clothes and posturing...the record was really good...but I wasn't as into all the colorful presentation everyone was doing.


so I got out early.....I really don't regret missing either show.

I saw Steve Vai about a year or two earlier with Joe Satriani...literally about 2 feet from my face (they played in a convention style meeting room albiet a fairly large one...the stage was maybe a foot off the ground and I was right in front...I could have literally stepped onto the stage if I wanted.

....so I had already seen Vai live. (and Joe)

In a perfect world I would have seen Van Halen in about 1981 or 1982....it didn't happen and I passed.

I'd rather imagine what it was like...than to have seen Dave and Eddie wasted and them not caring.

I'd already heard about the US festival show and was extremely wary of them live.

I really don't know.  I would imagine so......I honestly don't remember him  (John) and the VH thing as much as Sean Lombardo....Sean was a HUGE Van Halen fan.

I'm looking forward to seeing what your take is on OU812, F.U.C.K. and Balance are. Skip Van Halen III. Seriously, don't bother.

John was the one that convinced me not to quit Van Halen. I was pretty much done with the group when Dave left. But John's enthuasim for Van Hagar was so damn infectious. I curse thee........

I did not know that.

I remember John being a big Megadeth fan...(Rust in Peace) and then also David T Chastain.

Van Halen Videos w/ Commentary by Sammy Hagar

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rCV35s5Mkr0

I love it when an Artist takes the time to sit down and do these Commentary Tracks for videos they have been in. In the case of Sammy, it touches up on the albums OU812, F.U.C.K. and Balance. This is a pretty good video segment. FYI, Sammy's best hair days were during the OU812 years. Man, what I'd give to have hair like he had in "When It's Love" video. He was rockin' that do fo sho!

I'm watching it again. I lucked out in finding this one for sure. Didn't even know it existed till an hour ago. What's crazy is after watching it, I started wishing that Sammy was back in VH along with Mikey. No DLR or Chickenfoot! That's nuts because I actually like the way things are now with where everyone is currently at in their respective bands. Ack!!

Sammy was great in VH time proved that...and Sammy still can sing great.

and looks cool.

Dave...not so much on either front although he's doing pretty good...I do love seeing most of the OLD VH back...I stress most.  Mikey needs to be back in...no offense to Wolfie because I think he's very talented...he and his dad should do a side band...that would be amazing.

Even Sammy said that Mikey should be part of this "reunion". QFT! You know what, Mikey should hook up with the VH gang and Wolfie could step into Chickenfoot till the tour ends. I want a 15% cut of both bands should this actually happen! Hahaha. It would be a trip if it actually played out that way.

well Mike isn't coming back./.....the odds on a new VH album I think are very slim...with wolfie or not...but that's sort of stating the obvious.

who knows...they are younger than KISS so there's always the hope one version of VH will rise and conquer again

:)

are they even back on tour...they should be!
