    Hands down, Mr. Roth.

    Roth made the band. They've basically sucked ever since. Although it's probably the only band Roth could ever be great in. He sucked on his own too.

    For me, Van Halen ended when Roth left. The Hagar stuff sucks. Weepy, sentimental 80's crap. No longer rock.

    Roth was VERY good in the early days. However, I actually liked some of the Haggar stuff....OU812 comes to mind with "Best of Both Worlds" as a nice little rocker. The band fared better without DLR than he did without them. He went downhill fast and his comeback attempts with the band were pathetic....IMO.

    I liked Hagar by himself. Ever hear the live version of Trans-Am with the killer intro (around 1980). Sounds like a drag car rev up a couple times then take off. Really loud and bad ass.

    I need to find this on CD.

    Sure Roth wins (I voted for him too), but IMHO this is mainly due to the fact that anything after Diver Down sucked except an ocassional tune or two and only 1/2 of Diver Down was any good. The band changed their style of music and I think they did it for the worse.

    Atomic Punk is one of my favorites.
