Gary Cherone might have worked in Van Halen if not for the fact that many fans were mad about both the manner of Sammy Hagar's exit and that they were teased with the return of David Lee Roth only for it to either fall through or turn out to be never really been in the cards. Eddie Van Halen had long been a big babyface as a personality to Van Halen fans, and music fans in general. These twin debacles made him out to be the worst kind of heel and his rep still hasn't recovered after 15 years. No one was buying Cherone after that mess.This. Cherone was actually a GREAT replacement, don't blame him, blame Eddie and Alex..Gary was doomed from the start. That said, the tour they did with him, nobody went, but damn, they were on FIRE, Eddie was playing great and Gary sang his ass off, he not only pulled off the old classics but nailed the Hagar stuff as well and that's not easy to do..

Well, Im of the opinion that one wouldnt actually have to eat the corn out of Chynas shit to know that nothing good could come of it. - Portalesman
