For the record, my answer to that question would Be Sammy Hagar. Don’t get me wrong, I love the classic Van Halen too. How could you not like Diamond Dave? But I’m a MASSIVE Sammy fan, and loved what he brought to Van Halen. Even though Aerosmith is my favorite band, and I’ve seen them live at least 11 times, that one time Sammy brought the Cabo Wabo to Irving Plaza in NYC in ’02, and I was front and center, is probably the best concert I’ve ever been to… (and not just because of the copious amounts of Cabo Wabo tequila)…
