Thousands and thousands of hours of daily practice. Something Jimmy Page used to do but hasn't since about 1975, I reckon.

Posters who attended the Page/Plant concerts in 1998 always mention how well Page played at these gigs.  Wouldn't he need to practice a lot to play as well as he did?

I love Van Halen, but I could never stand David Lee Roth, especially live.  He is a clever lyricist and good in the studio, but he cannot sing live well at all.  I much prefer Van Halen with Sammy Hagar.  That era of Van Halen witnessed Eddie spreading his musical wings.  Sammy Hagar also translates extremely well from studio to stage.  He is a professional, he's got a fun personality, and he never takes his fans for granted.

I saw both versions & enjoyed both equally, almost 2 different bands really. I do prefer the Roth era songs a bit, as they are heavier, but there's no denying many of Sammy's era songs, can't go wrong either way.
