The first time I remember hearing Van Halen was when my older brother hit play on a cassette of ‘5150’.  I was young, so I really didn’t know the history of Van Halen, but I liked what I heard.  A lot.  Over time, I became aware of the legendary status of David Lee Roth and the VH days with Dave.

After hearing it all, I decided I liked Sammy better.  My viewpoint runs counter to popular opinion, but it’s a viewpoint I embrace.

What about you?  Sammy or Dave?  If you don’t have an opinion, go listen to each iteration and get back to me.  Email [email protected].

It does appear a Van Halen documentary is in the works, Michael Anthony recently posted this on Instagram
