Dave in his prime.
Not into the arena-rock-overblown personality-showbiz BS of either one, actually. But I recognize that each of us has different ideas about what they find entertaining.
Sammy Hagar is a "Show-man" David Roth is a "Showboat"
The time I saw VH live, it was with Sammy, and I was really impressed with him as performer.
But there was nothin' like the swagger that VH had with DLR for the first 4-5 albums!
For me it is not who is singing for VH. I look at the band as a whole.. and it always comes down to Eddie. I like all 3 lead singers...
Guitars: 1994 PRS Artist II; 1995 PRS Custom (24); 1997 PRS Santana I, PRS Custom 24 Custom Zebra Stripes, 2009 25th McCarty NF, 2013 PRS HBII
Amps: PRS Original Sewell 50 watt #43 with Paisley 2x12 cab; PRS Pre-Prod 2 Channel C with 2x12 DB Cabinet, PRS Custom 10 watt Combo
"Back in the day" Both.... ya it's a cop out but they both had great songs. Dave's show was better, Sammy sings a bit better...
Current day? Sammy still brings it.
