The woman thrown in the garbage container seemed like pure 1990s tone def “comedy.” But that little bit with Prince and Apples at the Lake. Oh and when he takes Apple’s chain. What dude gets a chick by acting in such a crazy way-besides Brian Laundrie? Prince was a genius, but kind of psycho.

Its sad to watch because with backing tracks and backup singers, as well as some precision audio mixing, he could have put on something passable. He's riffing and doesn't have the vocal talent at this age to get away with it (while in the midst of a well known song, he's free to goof around while talking, which they should have pushed for more of). All these legacy acts work very carefully to arrange songs so the singer can sing them--or take a breath while backup singers do some heavy lifting.

I've heard people say that they assumed Roth was gay because he never showed any chemistry with women in videos, well, IMHO he never showed any with men either... because he was ALL about the camera! Everything about him has always screamed "PAY ATTENTION TO ME PAY ATTENTION TO ME PAY ATTENTION TO ME", he never paid any attention to anyone near him, he gave all his attention to the audience or the camera that was their surrogate.

Like if you offered him a choice between a hard dick, a wet pussy, a mirror, or a live TV camera, he'd take the camera to bed (but give the mirror his phone number).

r61 and they were doing a good job but Roth wasn't working with them. He was just off on his own planet. For something like this to work with Roth's limited vocal abilities at this age, he's got to have his part planned out, which includes harmonizing with the backup singers and sometimes just being quiet and catching his breath while others make it sound like it did on the album 40 yrs ago. Instead, Dave was stuck in his weird stream of consciousness riffing that is entertaining in short doses when he talks but deadly as part of a vocal ensemble

He was fun back in the day, and seemed to have a sense or humor, so I liked him.

But obviously, he was doomed to age badly, that sort of I'll-do-anything-for-attention mugging can be cute in a young person, and he was hot enough that it was possible to overlook the tragic hair and ghastly clothes of his heyday. But at a certain age the attention-seeking becomes ridiculous, the mugging juvenile, the athleticism goes whether you like or not, and the voice fades even if you take the best possible care of it. Roth is supposed to be intelligent, he really should have gotten out of show biz in middle age and done something useful with his life. Maybe stuck to being a paramedic, but he's a bit old for that as well.

He was so beautiful in his twenties and early thirties, despite being short. He had a beautiful trim muscular body, lightly furred, and those dreamy eyes and full lips, and a gorgeous all-over tan. But like many Jewish men he aged horribly.

I can't stand Sammy's voice, but he seems like an alright guy. His Celebrity Ghost Story was both creepy and tender: his dad's ghost came to his apartment the night he died to meet his baby grandchild before crossing over to the hereafter.

Sammy is a cool dude. Not really a fan of hard rock, but he can play and sing. Plus he seems human and like a good person. Roth seems weird, couldn’t sing, dance or do anything other than clown around, which he did well. I’d like to see Roth vs. Hagar in Celebrity Boxing. Now THAT would be hilarious.

I think DLR would kick Sammy's ass. He knows karate, judo and practices other forms of martial arts. Sammy wouldn't take on that fight.

the only song i ever sort of liked by them was the first single after Sammy Hagar took over, the lyrics were "Cmon baby finish what you started.:

I never realized Alex Van Halen was so hot

Likewise, R143, but when who looks at the drummer? He really had and has an interesting look, not handsome but exotic, kind of jolie-laid. Definitely hotter than his brother, who was... kinda cute at best.

Anthony the balding bass player was the only band member I find completely attractive, but then someone above said he was "just my type".

Alex Van Halen in 2020. Not handsome, but totally my type.

R144 you have bad taste in men. 😂😂😂😂. Michael Anthony? Gurl: Aim a little higher than that (only joking with you)

Eddie was by far the best looking of that bunch.

R142 is that “Why can’t this be love?” Which is also the only one of their songs I can stomach.

Eddie had that goofy grin that I always charming.

OTOH, I’m sure Roth spent hours practicing his smoldering, ‘Come hither’ expressions I guess he thought he was irresistible to the ladies.

Even BITD as a naive kid, I found Roth’s posing inauthentic and unintentionally comical.

“I’ll Wait” is my fave Roth era song.

“When It’s Love” is my favorite Hagar era song.
