    Roth with Van Halen for sure. Hagar kicked ass with Montrose

    There is no Van Halen without Roth IMO. Diver Down is one of my favorites.

    Me and my buddy got in a fight back in the day over who would draw a better crowd if they toured again....Van Halen vs the Beatles. I was convinced VH would win that battle of the bands reunion. Back then only old people would have paid to see the Beatles again. Millions of young headbangers would have showed up to see VH.

    Well...I made the mistake of seeing VH a few years ago on that trainwreck of a reunion tour.

    It was all people over 50, and DLR could no longer carry a tune. At all.

    Sad...

    No doubt, DLR is a Vegas burnout, but he was good back in the day. I whish I went to see VH back then.

    DLR's energy really added to VH's novelty factor in the early days, I remember hearing "Running with the devil" for the first time in an AFEES audio club demo room in Germany and being blown away. I would have liked to have "discovered" them, but fine with not being the guy that claimed to.
