Let me start off by saying I love Van Halens music. Both with Dave and Sammy. Besides Led Zeppelin (who are gods) it's Van Halen for me. BUT I was very let down last night. Despite the poor sound quality inside the Honda Center Eddie, Alex and Wolfgang were great. The problem was Dave. Seems to me he needs to give it up. His voice is gone. Belting out every 5th word, forgetting words and all in all just sounding like crap. He was more worried about his footwork than singing. Can someone please drive to Mexico, hog tie Sammy and bring him in to save the show. Can't believe I'm blasting anything about Van Halen (except the album w/Gary) but Dave was that bad. Somebody get him a Doctor!

Hey Curt! If you're such a huge van of van halens music then you should know by now that dave has never been a great live singer and sammy is a great singer...but f***kin' boring. Dave puts on a great show eiether way. Stop looking so deep into things and make the best of it. They're almost 60 dude.

Really. Dave's not a great singer? That's news to everyone right? Come on. I have seen the boys a few times. I never expect Dave to be a Bruce Dickenson, Steve Perry or Rob Halford. What I'm saying is that the show he put on the other night was awful. He couldn't even remember the words to the new songs. Not like the US Festival where boose had alot to do with it. It was stupid. If you weren't there you wouldn't understand. I've never expected Dave to be a great singer. And don't care. Just saying it was horid!

Your first Van Halen show ? Dave as always says I forgot the fucking words are something along those lines, he has been doing that gig since 1979 0r 80 every show this is nothing new, now I do agree Roth's voice is extremely strained and sounds it live and on the new record, I do see how that could sound horrid to some, Roth has had many off nights on this tour for sure I have seen 11 shows so far but when Roth is on its magic, the band is great every night and Eddie Van Halen has been great every single show I have seen so far, Alex is spot on and Wolfie is better than Mike on bass.
