    Sammy Hagar sucks, his lyric are lame.

    Joe's guitar sound ain't happening, his gain sounds are synthy, he looks at his fret board too much and he's not that funky of a rhythm player. And he's one of those guys who has hairy upper arms.

    Mike's high harmony sound really shrill and not good.

    This **** ain't that good. REALLY boring. NO SONGS

    I think the album sounds great. I haven't see the Conan performance (hasn't aired in CO yet) but am looking forward to it.

    They did not sound good.
    Especially Satch.
    I haven't listened to him in awhile and had forgot how processed and rounded his sound it. It's like he's stuck in the Eventide sound vortex circa '89.
    What a shame as I was pulling for them.

    Yes, Sammy's lyrics blow. I sometimes wonder why he bothers because he sounds so lazy.
    Usually his songs have something sexual and something about drinking all held together by cliche's we've heard before in other songs. Tonight's example was the "hoochie coochie man" bit.

    On the upside they looked liked they were having fun, and it's interesting how the logo looks on the guitar and bass...rather "stripey" isn't it?

    I heard the whole new album earlier I liked it. I liked the guitar fills better than the lead singing melody but I figure you almost need that to get air play. I hope they sell well.

    While I agree with some of the criticisms, it wasn't all bad.

    And why they released the lamest song on the record as a 1st single is beyond me...

    I was sorta trying to be funny. But it is true. He shaves his head, why not give the upper arms a go over. Sorta sucks, you lose you lid but your arms are covered.

    haha, yeah...I'm sure if he was single and was worried about criticism he might have done it, but Joe doesn't worry about ****. I've met him a couple times. He's a very laid back, approachable dude...

    Just as an experiment if you heard this music in its context without the fame and facial recognition factor how would it fly?

    Now your thinking like a suit.

    I don't think it would fly. It's REALLY dated and mediocre...........now that's just judging from what I saw. I didn't see one thing that indicated these cats were legendary. No thundering, grooving drums. The guitar was........ok, solo was lame, tone was bad. Lyrics were atrocious and embarrassing. They looked old and disjointed, no unified image. Mike Anthony was wearing what appeared to be a Ed Hardy shirt for cryin out loud. It's not good.

    History would prove you wrong.....I usually get vilified for being so direct with my opinions. Funny thing is, I get paid for my direct musical opinions in my normal life so...........

    So far all I've gathered is Joe needs a waxing. Looking forward to the show!
