It's close but:
Sammy -- stronger mix of vocals and instrumentals in songs like "Dreams" & "Love Walks In" among others...
Absolutely Sammy Hagar! I liked Van Halen with David Lee Roth....but, I loved Van Halen with Sammy Hagar.
I've not "followed" Van Halen closely, tho from what bits I've seen & heard, I prefer Sammy Hagar, as far as vocals.
David Lee Roth was a better performer but Hagar lifted the whole band not just himself. I do have to admit Roth is just more fun.
He does pop up once in a while and Hagar has a bar in Cabo and bottles his own tequila.
OH yea.... (sings) Pour some sugar on me..........
so is that right or not.....just asking...
Go with the 80s... So, David Lee Roth.
Van Halen was a little before my time and but I have see the Red Rocker in concert and I can say I wasn't impressed.
Never seen him perform but I like what i hear on the radio from him better. So I guess as default yes. Lol.
