Tattoo- This is the best they could come up with. This is your " HIT SINGLE " It Sucks!!!!!! I have been a Halen fan all my life & this is even worse then VH III. Dave, go back to whatever rock you crawled out from under. After 1984 your career sucked. Van Halen without Sammy SUCKS!

I always am intigued to hear Eddie play & love his solos. The solo in Tattoo is ok but a long way from the greatest & what were accustomed to.

Michael Anthony is getting 25% of it since he played on the original demo in '76. The album is all throwaways from the Roth era. Sony actually passed on the album last October after VH spent 3 months mixing the joke. UMG took it cause of the tour points, they know the album sucks like "Balance". Only Roth's new hairpiece is better.

Fist I need to HEAR the new album before I can judge it. I don't believe it's all throwaways from the Roth era, Eddie has a lot of riffs, and used them. No more Sammy Hagar, so no more crap like 'Eagles Fly' and 'Finish What Ya Started'. Finally a new album, and I expect good stuff.

If you want some good solos, go check out Michael Angelo Batio, Yngwie Malmsteen or Rusty Cooley on youtube.

Lets look at this argument. Van Halen has two diamond status albums both 10 million in sales and they are Roth era albums Van Halen 1 and 1984 those two records alone have outsold the entire Van Hagar catalog.
Next 1984 sold 5.5 million in one year from release and over 10 million total, 5150 sold 3 million in one year from release and 6 million total. So every Hagar Halen album sold less than 1984.
1984 was Van Halens true peak sorry Sam Fan.
Next if we look at the entire catalog the Roth era is the stronger one and the one that holds up best.
Van Halens only #1 hit was a Roth era song Jump. I must also point out that much of 5150 was already written with Roth before he left the band.
Now in total sales Roth Era has out sold Sam Era 2-1
