Van Halen III (again)

I've completed my analysis of Van Halen III (with Gary Cherone) and I've decided that he was drastically under-appreciated and that the problem with the album they created was horrible production (it was produced by Mike Post, best known for TV show themes--such as Law & Order). I watched the whole concert that they filmed in Australia and it totally rocked---the band was sharp and Gary provided a very visible burst of energy. Fans seemed to love the tour. Gary did not have the hang-ups about singing Sammy & Dave's stuff (they apparently wouldn't or couldn't sing each others' stuff). So, free from the drama the band rocked all eras. I wish I could've seen this tour. Studio songs sounded MUCH better live (for example, Without You below--studio and live; I love this song live and would've turned the video off a few seconds in--I especially like the little Beatles deal at the end). They should've kept him and never, never, never should have thought of getting rid of Michael Anthony.
