Yeah but was VH, VH with Sammy Hagar then? I know they got very successfull with Hagar but was it really VH? You didn't mention that one!!
Also heard rumours that MONTROSE with Hagar are gonna give it another shot!!!
VH with Sammy was Van HAGAR, as opposed to Van HALEN. Never mind what WB records put on the label, these were two very differenct bands. Dave and Eddie had a much different chemistry (songwriting and otherwise) than Sammy and Eddie did. Montrose briefly reunited during the sessions for Sammy's "Marching to Mars" album and can be heard on the track "Leaving the Warmth of the Womb". There is also an MP3 of them performing a new version of their 1973 single "Rock Candy" floating around on Napster. Sammy has said in numerous interviews since 1996 that he never again intends to join any bands again, especially those named after guitarists.

Was Tyketto, Tyketto with Steve Augeri and not Danny Vaughn if we are gonna get picky! Is Ratt, Ratt with their new singer, same with Skid Row, why are they taking so long to get the new album out?

I never heard anything Steve Augeri did before he became the Steve Perry stand in. As for my feelings on Ratt and Skid Row.... well I'll just be polite and say that new singers couldn't possibly make them much worse.

There's only some bands with original members left that have kept going like Def Leppard for one (and yes I know they have Vivian Campell, but if Steve were still alive he'd still be a Leppard and still is), Queensryche is another band with longetivity (almost), these bands haven't jumped on any bandwagon's a'la Iron Maiden etc.. and have just kept going and going getting stronger....
and isn't the new Boston cd due? At l....


Leppard lost a lot of their original sound when they kicked Pete Willis out of the band for being a drunk. It's really too bad because High & Dry is still the best album they have ever done. They lost the other half when Steve Clark died, and even before his death, seemed to be recycling the same album over and over. Pyromania, Hysteria, etc. even the titles are similar.

Queensryche, like Extreme and Van Hagar before them have fallen victim to the curse of Ray Danniels, the biggest piece of shit manager in rock n roll history. I haven't heard anyone yet who likes their new album and Chris De Garmo is already missed.

Boston is another band that attempted to replace a frontman who was a HUGE part of their sound and identity. They failed miserably. No sooner had the "Walk On" album fallen from the charts, and Brad Delp was back on board in time for the tour. I have also heard rumors of a new Boston album. Given the average of 8 years between their releases and their age, this could very well be their last time around. Hope Brad & Tom give us something to remember them by (as if the first 3 albums weren't enough)
