    Yep. He became a member at the precise moment I became nauseated by their music. Coincidence?

    Sorry, but I no longer had any use for that band after their music became the launching pad for "Pepsi Clear"....

    Actually, I think they did much better with the launch of "Crystal Gravy."

    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    True, but I don't think that the Van Halen III album is considered Hall worthy. A lot of the Sammy Hagar VH stuff is good material. Same goes for the David Lee Roth VH years. Cherone? Notta. Might be "extreme" thinking to state otherwise!
    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    Some of the Hagar stuff might be good....but is it hall worhty? At least the DLR years were formative to VH. I was always of the opinion that when Sammy joined the bands they became Night Ranger. For the most part, nothing but pop/rock, nothing I'd say was influential or ground breaking going on there....so why should Sammy get in as part of VH?

    If it's true that there's only one way to rock, how likely is it that Sammy Hagar actually knows that way?

    Makes all the routine posts.

    I didn't mind Sammy so much...of course I'm younger, so the mid 80s into the 90s and into my teen years (mid - late 90s) it was Sammy.

    Don't get me wrong they kicked more ass and took more names with David Lee Roth at the helm...

    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    I loved Sammy hagar with them as well as Roth. They were two different bands, but both produced some great stuff. I'm in the minority for liking both but 5150 had some killer stuff on it.

    REM should issue an apology for the last 11 years of music they've put out. I never thought losing a drummer could make you lose your sense of melody, but good heavens, the last albums (partially with New Adventures in Hi-Fi but mostly starting with Up) have been almost unlistenable.

    Each has one or two good songs and then you read they were the ones that the band didn't want on the album.

    It's one thing to not be commercial, but it's another thing to put out something that you don't want to listen to a second time. Yech.

    And speaking of Van Halen, I had no clue that Michael Anthony was out of the band because he is still friends with Sammy Hagar.

    I do find Hagar's hawking of his own tequila a bit odd, too. His obsession with the Cabo Wabo thing is a little old. You can't watch an interview without him plugging it. He's going to be the Karl Malden of rock stars.

    Michael has been replaced by Eddie's son Wolfgang on bass. Be interesting to see who plays for Van Halen on their induction since Dave, Sammy and Michael are not in the band anymore.
