It's close but:<br />
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.......... <br />
so is that right or not.....just asking...
Go with the 80s... So, David Lee Roth.
