    Today 94 WHJY (boy have they been showing up here alot lately) played Slaughter's "Fly to the Angels" and I couldn't help but noticing the similarities between his sound and Chris Cornel's. Both men can scream and sing quieter.
    Cornel's name has popped up several times as being on many a wish list if VH goes with #4 so whats your take on Mark Slaughter? I'm not positive what he has been doing of late, but I think that Slaughter still plays shows around the country.

    I'm a huge fan of Vinnie Vincent, but Slaughter's voice is way too whiny sounding. When he sings in a lower range it sounds fine, but that high scream is so irritating. I think Robert Fleischman is much better.

    Eddymon,

    Are you on the same "medication" as your buddy Vin Baker?

    I think Jani Lane would be a great hire.

    Hey, why not get all the washed up has-been cheesy hair band singers from the 80's and let them audition for Van Halen?

    We all know that the singer doesn't matter anyway, right ?

    My take is that the singer of Van Halen can be only 1 of 2 people (or both, if it could be worked out)...

    Know how we pronounce "Slaughter" around here at KCLB?

    We just take the word "laughter" and put an "S" in front of it.

    I think Mark Slaughter has a killer voice (I'm a big fan of unique voices over trained "good" voices, like Slaughter, Pearcy, Roth, etc.), but it wouldn't fit with the music. Although, did any of you hear Mark Slaughter's vocals on the VH tribute album where he sang "I'm the One?" KILLER STUFF!
