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), 1999 PRS Custom 22 Soapbar, PRS Custom 24 Zebra Stripes, 2009 25th McCarty NF, 2010 PRS 25th Modern Eagle II, 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.
