After twenty years you'd think people would give up on this pipe-dream, I did by `86. I hate to break it to all the faithful Dave fans out there but a full-blown reunion probably won't happen if it hasn't happened in the last two decades. Sorry. Let's face it, the man was an arrogant prick! Try to find some (really) old issues of Hit Parader, Circus, etc. and read up on why the brothers threw his ass out of the band, He really did have it coming.
Please don't get me wrong, Dave with Van Halen rocks like nothin' else and remains the ultimate Van Halen. However, Sammy with Van Halen was great too, it was just an entirely different animal. To me, it's the same as AC/DC with Bon Scott or Brian Johnson, Iron Maiden with Paul Di'Anno or Bruce Dickenson. They all kick serious ass in their own right. That being said, I won't be seeing VH perform any more regardless of who sings for them.
