Ed. Van Halen came to the Scottrade Center on April 29, 2012 with Kool and the Gang in tow. The band, in its fifth decade, is back to its David Lee Roth roots. But his onetime replacement, Sammy Hagar, is not without his supporters. To settle the debate, Michael Dauphin spent some time with the true experts -- the Van Halen fans in attendance last night, many of whom came dressed for the occasion.
