I had to go to a thing with my wife and kid last night...but I am DYING to get into all this VH stuff right now

that EVH article looked amazing and a lot of the links in the article were more info on what's been up...so don't avoid those.

the comment section had some great arguments too.

I'm not sure how I feel about this. Too much bad blood makes this a non-starter for me. Now, playing devil's advocate here, lets say that Eddie reaches out and contacts Sammy and they in fact move forward with a reunion, what happens to Mike? See, if Eddie wasn't willing to dump his son for a full on Reunion with Dave and Mike back in the band, what's the magic drink that's going to make Eddie suddenly dump Wolfie now for Mike? It won't happen. Now, if Sammy ends up back in the band, but without Mike by his side, Sammy is going to look like a major hypocrite and come off looking very bad that he would choose money over a friend. Even if Mike gave Sammy his blessing to re-join without him, Sammy is still going to take a lot of sh*t for doing that. With that said, if a miracle happens and Sammy and Mike re-join, I'd be down for that as I'm over with Dave fronting the band. We aren't getting any new albums with him on vocals anytime soon and their live shows for the most part suck. He can't sing anymore. Might as well as get Sammy since he still has it vocally.

I didn't read the article, but it doesn't really matter to me. That ship has sailed caring for any of those artists. I don't care about reliving the good old days. I'm definitely not wrapped up in the personnel dynamics. Just play and play good. Hell, why does it have to be any certain combination. Get em all up there.

Stevie wonder had two of every musical artist. They just switched it around. The band sounded awesome.

The rivalry is nothing but entertainment fodder. Music is famous for its conflicts.

I know I sound like a cranky old man. I've seen, heard, read so much of band discourse, it's gone to the bottom of my musical priority. Now I do wanna hear if they do get together and do something creative.

Sammy Hagar Says Van Halen Reunion Is Lurking In The Woods - May 13, 2017

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=swIjjBiMBws


This has been a fantasy booking for years from fans on both sides, myself included. As much as I want to believe this is a possibility, I still can't bring myself to bite. Roth for one would absolutely hype this as legit....and then purposely try to sabotage it once it became a reality. His ego would NEVER allow Sammy to share the stage with him....even if they do 'rotate' in and out every few songs. Whether it happens or not....I'm not interested unless Mike is involved. Time to sack Wolfie.

he just wants to get blowjobs under the stage during Ed's solos

hahaha

I cannot see a scenario where Dave and Sam would share the stage....that said.  a full Sammy tour would be awesome and I would 100% try and see it live.

I have chose NOT to see Dave live since 1984 because I don't trust him as a performer.  I love the guy to death but I am not going to go and watch garbage.

Yeah, if Sam and Dave can't get along touring with separate bands years ago....how would this suddenly be doable now?

Would I go see Sammy with VH? Yeah....if Mike is in it. Otherwise...no deal. Wolfie has his own band. He needs to tell Daddy to f*ck off and let him sink or swim on his own. Nepotism SUCKS!

Sam and Mike I hope are a package deal now...hahaha...but I would for sure see this line up over Dave (live with wolf) and honestly...studio album-wise...Dave has my vote every time./  I love 5150 but past that not really a fan of Sammy as a core album guy

it's not bad for sure...and I bet most of it I would like more....but I know Sammy is a pro(live where as dave is very unpredictable) ...and Mike is so much a part of the live VH sound...as much as ed wants to deny it.....Mikey is a HUGE part of the voice of VH!!!!!!

well I mean...those songs might not be as iconic...as other stuff....I actually love Eagles Fly as a for instance and think it was one of the better live songs....it's hard to compete with the first 5 VH records for studio
tracks if we go song versus song.

Ha. I never compare VH Dave to VH Sammy. Apples and Oranges man. Besides, to do so would give me a migraine. I really do believe a Reunion with Sammy will happen because I think right now he is kind of floundering with The Circle ever since Chickenfoot ended up at KFC.

Sammy and Mike are forever joined at the hip. Great tandem. All that's missing is a Drummer and Guitar Player to fill out there tandem. You see where I'm going with this. Ace and Peter. Yep...they should join forces and call themselves what?
