Maybe your definition of "talent" is based off some kinda AMERICAN IDOL type

----oh yeah---Roth also helped VH establish---not only the band----but basically
created the whole party hard rock genre...
Hagar (one "g") era VH might as well be 80s Journey or Bad English
or some other vanilla middle of the road schlock---and while that may be
passable music in some circles (hey I love me some "Open Arms") --- its like
nails on a chalkboard for the fans of the ROTH lineup(s) who appreciate the
VAN HALEN band for the vibe it was built on which was 97% Roth, 97% Ed
and two percent the other guys (fawning over Mikey's angellic backing vox
withstanding----take it down a notch already---its just some high backing
vocals for cripes' sake)
If Roth ever exits VH again it'll be one of the worst travesties in rock history
just as it was the few times before (if you count 1996 and the times in the
early 2000s when they tried to make it work)
Loving "Hagar VH" and hating "Roth VH" is like loving an apple tree for this
seasons' leaves and hating the apples----you can do that---it just doesn't
make much sense
Oh---and---by the way---
I agree---Internet misinformation is a bad thing.
I've heard this may be cancelled too---but as fas as I know---there's no
Rock on kids.

When I .... how do you say (?) .... think of my mindframe on this spaceplane, I'm Skywalker with my X-Wing like I was when I was a kid.
