This debate never ends with me and several of my friends! This is actually a hard call for me. I definitely think that Sammy is much more talented than Diamond Dave from a musical perspective. But there was something magical about Van Halen when Diamond Dave was the lead singer. VH was more "fun" with him. Sammy had some great songs with VH too, but they seemed more "serious" or "heavier". VH was actually much more successful with Sammy in terms of record sales than they were with David Lee Roth. Anyway, in the end, I wish Diamond Dave never left the band (or, more accurately, wasn't pushed out)! Who do you prefer and why? And what is the latest on Roth coming back to the band?
