Sammy Hagar lost his edge when he left Montrose, he got too glossy with Van Halen.

There was a lot of Sammy between his stint with Montrose and his joining VH- and there's been a lot of Sammy since. I don't know that we can paint all of his work after his two years with Montrose as glossy. Even during his time in VH- he certainly was not the sole song writer. HSAS and Chickenfoot, even all of his solo work are hard to label that way. During the 80s he did use keyboards, but so did just about everyone- it's where music was going. I agree that Sammy moved in a little more of a pop direction. I liked it, but I know that some thought it went too far in that direction. All a matter of tastes I suppose.

I may be a rarity in the VH commentary world, because I like both VanRoth and VanHagar. I think it's because I only started actually listening to VH closely in the Hagar era, and had to go back a bit to see the genius of the Roth version. Of course I remember when 1984 was all the rage - like MJ's Thriller it was impossible to avoid for a while - but only at OU812 did I start really paying attention.

Two different animals, obviously, but each tastes good for what it is.

One thing I'll say is that it does seem Hagar is less of a raging douche than Roth, and music aside, that counts for a lot in my book.

Nevertheless, "Panama", "Runnin' With The Devil" (see my first ever fanpage board post), and (OBVIOUSLY) "Hot For Teacher" are my all-time faves. Ya don't see any Hagar on THAT list!

Am I the only one that's mildly amused that a thread about Mark Olson got hijacked by...Van Halen talk?

Well I heard that once Gary Louris played with Van Halen, so it's not *entirely* off topic, is it?

Am I the only one that finds "I Can't Drive 55" too pedestrian?

I suppose pedestrians would find it difficult to drive 55.

No way, man. You can't walk that back. I KNOW THE TRUTH!

VH is a lot of fun.

I love Van Halen (the Roth version of the band, and I love their latest reunion album). The Hagar era was terrible, thus my comment.

Van Halen has a way of cutting through indie melodrama.
