Personality disputes aside, Van Halen was a better band with David Lee Roth. I like all of their music, but there a big difference between Van Halen and Van Hagar.


I'll take Diamond Dave over Sammy any day! Dave was a singer AND entertainer!! I think his voice is better to! And the songs were better with Dave!


Sammy Hagar's very best work was pre-VH. The last solo album he made was Standing Hampton in 83' and is his most outstanding work!! I played that LP unto death! 3 MONSTER jams came off that LP. Heavy Metal Noise, There's only one way to rock, and my favorite Can't Get Loose! But Even before that his stuff with Montrose was solid! To be fair about Hagar, Hes a talented rocker and he did the impossible, He had to come behind DLR and his version of VH and do his best to fill DLR shoes... them some mighty big shoes! And even though VH with Hagar isnt nearly as good, He still managed to put out a quality product!! 💯😎👍
