At least this time around, they’re letting the photogs shoot from the front of the stage. I remember back in 2007-08, they made everybody stay back by the soundboard to shoot, more than halfway across the room.

videoman320: How many critics have to rip this guy before you guys admit Dave vocally sucks and is an embarrassment to the band and the brand that is Van Halen. I cannot believe how his fans can say his vocals are good. We all want to be able to continue to see and enjoy this band but come on if this was another singer in another band they would be ripped here worse than the critics are ripping Dave.

I listen with my ears, and not my eyes… what I hear takes priority over what I see. Visually, Dave isn’t difficult to watch… he is sometimes goofy, but most often entertaining.

But his voice is like nails across a chalkboard, a good 20% of the time, and it totally ruins the music for me.

I could care less if he sings the right lyrics…. it’s his vocal tone, and ability to sing the right notes.

It would be like Ed playing through shitty amps, with an out of tune guitar, and hitting the wrong notes.

If Dave was a replacement singer…. everyone would hate him, and say he is the worst tribute band singer out there.


The poor folks play for keeps down here…They’re the living dead. Nobody rules these streets at night like Van Halen!!

You know, if you would put this in your signature block, it would save you from having to post it so often. You could just post “SSB” (see signature block). And the upside would be, even on one of those rare occasions when you post something that isn’t slagging on DLR, you still get to slag on him because it’s in your signature block. So instead of only 75% of the time – you’d be slagging on him 100% of the time!

Think about it.

I nominate this for post of the year. Thanks for making me laugh, Randy.

The photogs only get 1st 3 songs, and they go by quick trust me. It felt like 30 seconds, although it was 15 minutes. True though front of stage was incredible to shoot from. In 15 minutes I blasted off probably 400 photos from 2 cameras.

It is what it is. There are other bands that you could listen to instead.


When you turn on your stereo, does it return the favor?

This is my favorite all-time band…. has been since 1981.

I know it is what it is…. It just bothers me that some say Dave is singing better than ever. You would have to be delusional to believe that.

I prefer honesty.

I am not slagging on Dave… just being honest about reality. Dave is my all-time favorite singer…. he has just become difficult to listen to.

So no need to change my signature block.

Thanks for posting buddy! These were B shots of mine that I did not flag as my A choice pics. Looking back a year and a half later I decided some were A choices, and figured the public needed to see them.
