People really like to give Gary Cherone crap, but I will always defend him. I like VH3 (controversial I know). If you listen with an open mind you realize the album has some real gems, and Gary held his own. I just think people had finally gotten used to Hagar and ripped the new guy. Sometimes they didn’t sound like Van Halen, but honestly, who frickin’ cares? Music is music. And honestly, speaking as a musician, you get bored playing the same stuff all the time.
