I'd love to see them.

Likely won't happen though. Shame.

Love Van Halen.

I love VAN HALEN and had at least one of their albums on vinyl... (1984 I think...)  I even liked them with whozit?  SAMMY HAGAR?   Drink 

I'd definitely go see 'em, but my 1 of 2 Rock friends now lives in Nevada and the other ain't got a pot to p**s in.  Don't think I'll get to see 'em in any case.  Bluesad

Glad to see DLR and the boys back, especially recording a new record. I'm not expecting an amazing album, but I'm sure it'll be good. I'm just disappointed at the moment to see only US dates announced for the tour.

agreed.  I think the album comes out soon. judging by the single it will be good

Eddie Van Halen's son is the new bassist so the band ages are something like 56, 57, 59, and 20!

Hope it's more hard rock now that Dave's back.  I never could get into that pop rock stuff with Sammy.

Dave looks like Captain Archer from Star Trek Enterprise   TeddyR

I like most of the 'van hagar' stuff but I agree some of the ballads were too slushy

Mike left because of all the b***hing that started between the other guys and Sammy, because he's best buds with Hagar and they can basically do what they want musically now in Chickenfoot.

technically I should like Chickenfoot (considering the line up) but the stuff that I've heard doesn't do much for me tbh

Never liked the Hagar era, I always much preferred the DLR era, even though I think he is a bit of a douchebag.  I don't even think he is a very good singer, but whatever the original lineup did, it worked and worked very well.

I'll be the odd man out so far and say I'm not really too fussed on the return. To me, the original lineup is like a good looking corpse. It should remain dead and be remembered for what it was.

yeah he's definitely more of a 'front man' than a 'singer' if that makes any sense. I've got bootlegs of VH shows where he only sings a few words per verse, more interested in dancing than singing. but he fits with the band overall

however for being "not really too fussed" on the return of VH I'm afraid I must negative karma you.

Why joking? I love attention. Good attention, bad attention. It's all attention.

Wonderful! I'm a long time Van Halen fan and I definitely prefer the DLR days....that to me was the best of them. Although I did like "Humans Being"....that was a good song.

Yes,I'm fine....as long as I don't look too closely.
