|Van Halen||Michael Anthony||The bass player for the classic VH lineup and Van Hagar, Mike now plays in all of Sammy Hagar's solo endeavors, including Chickenfoot and The Circle. After he left VH, he was replaced by Wolfgang Van Halen. - GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Van Halen||Sammy Hagar||Hagar had a decent solo career, then blew it to join Van Halen. Commercially, the band was more successful. But I believe he sold out the fans of his solo work. - Rocky II|
|Van Halen||David Lee Roth||Hate him for his personality, but Diamond Dave was much maligned critically, and should have gotten more respect than "Van Hagar". - Rocky|
|Velvet Underground||Lou Reed||After being with Andy Warhol in the 60's, Lou Reed made a hit song "Take a walk on the Wild Side" and despite being a hit, Lou Reed actually hated it! - Paul Warren|
|Vinegar Joe||Robert Palmer||Vinegar Joe never took off, but Robert Palmer's career actually did. From "Every Kinda People" to the MTV Videos with all the female clones. - Paul Warren|
|Vixen||Janet Gardner||She exited her former band in January 2019 to focus on her solo career. - Joey F.|
