Opie had to go and mention Van Halen hiring Gary Cherone during a recent show. Being a glutton for punishment, I just had to dig out the CD to see if it was as bad as I remember. It's even worse and now I have one of those shitty songs stuck in my head.

I like Fire in the Hole a lot, but everything else on that CD sucks hard.

I'm lucky, mine wouldn't play anymore after my dog pissed on it.

I can't say I remember that. I'll have to dig it up on the net and listen.

I just remember what I heard really sucked ass so I never listened to the whole album.

I can't understand half of what he's singing until the chorus. He sounds/looks like some random guy doing a halfway decent imitation of trying to sing like Sammy Hagar.

The thing that sucks about that song in particular is it sounds like a generic song from some late '80s hair metal band instead of Van Halen. There's no real hook or melody to it.

This, I know Sebastian tried out - I wonder how he would have sounded
He would have killed on the early DLR stuff

Leave it to Opie to bring up the worst. Whenever they bring up the issue if they sounded better on XM or New they play the garbage early shows on New and not the later gold stuff. Like eveything they did on XM was better.
As for VH, I'm hoping that the new album will wipe away any memory of Cherone.
