Submitted by: madest 5 years ago in Entertainment

David Lee Roth is back as frontman with a suspiciously thick head of hair. Thoughts on the new Van Halen?

As much as I love Van Halen (Hagar Era Fan more than Roth era) and as excited as I am to see them back, I have one request. Dave...you`re in Van Halen, not the damn Backstreet Boys. Calm the hell down, son.

God damn, that`s how you play guitar. If you`re not excited for the new VH tour and CD, you don`t know poo about rock n roll.

DLR was the heart of VH, when he left there was just another guitar hooligan metal band.

"David "shecky" Lee Roth is absolutely laughable ... Actually, the whole damn thing is laughable."

When isn`t Diamond Dave laughable? I mean, I love VH and all, but I could never take Dave seriously.

At Van Halen`s worst is still light years better than Van Hagar`s best.

I think it sucks. I agree that there is nothing inspired about it. Who wrote this thing? Wolfgang? I`m going to go listen to some Chickenfoot now...

Oooof, that was bad. Eddie really needs to get his head out of his a$$, dump Wolfgang and bring Michael Anthony back, and then hire someone who is not a "yes" man that`ll tell them this song sucks.

c`mon, now - this is a solid, cheeseball VH b-side. what`s more interesting to me is that despite the mostly by-the-numbers approach, there`s something else in dave`s performance that suggests they could take it all in a new direction. it won`t happen, but the energy is there.

Not only have they not aged well, neither has their music. C`mon guys...it`s not 1984 anymore!

"I wonder if Eddie can still play Eruption?"

He quit drinking. Eddie was on fire the last time they were in town. Best I`ve ever seen him play. He was in really good shape also. His body looked like a 25 year old.

Disappointing , I wonder if Eddie can still play "Eruption" ? It`d be the only way I`d pay to see them after this video.

My brother is a huge David Lee Roth fan. Last time they were in town we paid $700 each for VP tickets. We got a tour of every part of the stage. I even got to stand on the edge of it. Well I slowly backed up the stairs "to get a better look" at the guitars they were showing us until I was on the stage. At the end of the tour the guide got on her walky talky and said, "We have a bunch of VIP`s coming through. You`ll want to close your dressing room doors." I think if you have people that are such fans that they pay $700 for a ticket someone from the band can at least stick their head out. As I was walking through the backstage hallway I noticed that Dave`s dressing room was mysteriously missing. I think Eddie makes him stay in his bus. Great show. We were in the inner ring 4th row. You could tell David was really happy to be back in the band. He couldn`t wipe the smile from his face. Made him look less like a rocker but I didn`t care - he was back!

Maybe it`s because I`m old school that I like DLR a million times more than Hagar. There`s a tape of DLR`s voice isolated on Running With the Devil. His enthusiasm comes through loud and clear. Besides I hear he`s a dick to work with and I wouldn`t expect less from a rock god.

This is the best. The 30-40 year old`s love it. The 18-29 year old`s hate it. Roth vs Hagar!! Put me in the Roth category. I like it!!

Van Halen didn`t deserve Sammy Hagar. They still don`t.

Not a fan of this song, but I`m willing to give the rest of the album a chance once it comes out.
