Eddie's guitar tone will always be my favorite however on F.U.C.K. I don't really care for the production.

Power drills and guitars FTW

Of course the Sammy crap is winning here.

The Van Hagar Fans outweigh the real Van Halen Fans here on this site.  Always have, always will.
We used to have some fun arguments about real Van Halen vs the Van Hagar crap.
The good old days.

David Lee Roth BLOWS Sammy Fairygar AWAY!!!!!
I think the Van Halen fans on here back Eddie over Roth and that's the true deciding factor. Sammy is just a bystander.
Eddie and Dave > Eddie and Sammy, Dave > Sam. It`s simple, whatever Dave`s on brings the best out of Ed.
Yeah but my point is as long as it's Eddie on one side and Roth on the other, a lot of VH fans will always back Eddie come what may.
I get it, I know some people here think that and lots on VHND did too. I love Eddie more than any other musician but it`s nuts to say anything after 1986 was as good as `78-84.
I know. After 1984 there was something missing from Eddie's playing, the tone wasn't the same, the energetic attack, the swing wasn't there, the grit was missing.

Absolutely!  The Brown Sound turned into the Frown Sound!  What the Fukk Eddie?  Greatest guitar player ever.

Yeah, he "sucked". Here's an example of Eddie and Sammy KICKING ASS, my man...tell me this tone is not spot on, and that his playing is not jut as aggressive as it was when Roth was in the band:



Eddie sounds great!  Sammy?  Come on buddy!  Sammy "sucks" in Van Halen.  Junk

I think that apart from his own solo stuff , Sammy was better in
both Montrose and the short-lived HSAS project
