Response to Miles Archer (Reply #13)

Thu Jul 3, 2014, 01:59 PM

39. I was a Roth fan first.

I was too young when Roth was actually in Van Halen, so I was late to the party. Actually, I was a fan of Roth's first; I liked his solo stuff with Steve Vai, so I then decided to check out what else he had done and subsequently became a Roth-era Van Halen fan. But I never even felt compelled to check out what VH were like after Roth, it's like the band ended for me after "1984".

Then my guitar teacher lent me his copy of VH's "Live Without a Net" Video and my main impressions were: (1) They (obviously) hardly played any of the (Roth-era) songs that I knew and loved, (2) I didn't like any of the new songs, (3) I really couldn't stand Hagar's voice.

Re. Chickenfoot: I'd be curious to hear how Satriani adapts to a band context, but I can't bring myself to having to hear Sammy sing... But I'm happy to see that Michael Anthony landed on his feet, he get screwed over bad by VH.
