I used to listen to Dave and Sammy VH all the time and liked all the albums. Maybe I burnt myself out or something because now I don't care to listen to any of it. I don't even have enough intrest to listen to the latest album. I think I've heard 3 songs from it and didn't really care for them.
I'm not a big DLR fan but pretty much all of the DLR era stuff is great and I really love 5150 and For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge out of the Hagar era. In recent years I have probably listened to the latter album more than the others (edit - this is saying something about how good the songs are IMO, because I really don't like the sound of that album). I don't listen to the radio and I purposefully don't listen to any of these albums until they feel distant enough to experience again with some real enjoyment.
I am 45 and pretty much grew up at the same time they were getting big. I was a huge music fan but always disliked VH, of course I knew Eddie was great and never really disliked him but thought DLR was a big doofy clown. Of course there were always a couple of tunes I dug but never enough to buy an album. Fast forward to about a year or two ago, I started picking up a majority of their catalog. I enjoy it alot more now thats for sure. I also never got into RUSH until the last couple of months as I began picking up their catalog and enjoying that as well. I listen to alot of music at work that I never really got into before just because I am getting stuff really cheap and looking for things I casually like but never gave enough time to. Now it's time.

In primary school when my friends discovered swearing, I thought "I've never said the f-word before. I'm never going to say it". I wanted to say it when I got older (mostly because my friends would nag me about saying it), but I just didn't want to end the streak of not-saying it
I ended up accidentally saying it to my girlfriend at the time. I said "Someone told me that Ben got with a really fat girl and he titty-****************ed her"
