The year…1986. The place….Shreveport, Louisiana. Van Halen takes the stage on their 5150 tour….and Sammy Hagar is introduced as the new front man of Van Halen! Well, needless to say, the crowd went wild! And still to this day there are three different camp’s of Van Halen fans. Those that prefer David Lee Roth, the others that choose Sammy Hagar….and those that like both! They each had a different style and they both had their victories with Van Halen, I just think Diamond Dave didn’t see the 5150 tour being such a huge success Watch above the MTV special that highlights the red rocker’s introduction into one of the greatest rock bands of all time!
A new era began, another closed. Long live rock and roll!
