    I'm for zero covers.
    I'm sure there are crates of music the band has written we will never hear. I wouldn't want one of those orginals bumped even if it wasn't the best song.

    I'd like to see Dave wear blackface makeup ala Al Jolson and they could play "Back in Black" by AC/DC.

    Not many groups can play covers and make them sound like it's their own. Van Halen can.
    I would love to hear them do "Summertime Blues" in the studio. Or even "Join Together" by The Who.

    Nice call Raldo! I love their version of Summertime Blues from Club Days Goldenwest Ballroom II and from Stand by your side--very cool "Iron Man" jam for the outtro,too. They covered so many toons with Dave it's hard to think of new ones sometimes,but "Join Together" would be cool and apopro(sp?)if they are indeed re-convening(please God please). Dave said they knew over 200 cover tunes in the club days.

    I like them but no more cover songs. Now sing some of Dave's solo stuff, that would be very sweeeeet!

    Okay the house isn't particularly found of covers, but they're okay. I say if they do just have to do one, cover either SRV, Jimi Hendrix, or Rhodes era Ozzy! Crazy Train or Voodoo Chile !

    While I don't think they need to do any more covers, I just thought of a good one:

    "Honky Tonk Woman" by the Stones. Think about it! That cool guitar intro, then Dave comes in, "I met her.....". Mikey could throw in some high harmonies during the chorus.... If you know the song, just imagine VH doing it!

    Mama let 'em play, by Jerry Doucette. It's a great guitar song that Ed and gang could just turn into a monster. I've never had a problem with VH covers, because they took on such a fresh flavour after the boys worked them over. If I could vote for one though, Mama would be it.

    Cover songs are cover songs no matter how well you do them. If they put a new album out full of cover songs, I would be a very unhappy camper.

    Since Dave did California Girls, how about another Beach Boys classic?

    Think about this, b/c it could be very cool:
    Surfin' USA.

    Don't Laugh!!

    Let Ed do those opening bends, and then replace the organ solo in the middle w/ a solid minute of wailin'.

    I'd buy it.

    I'd also vote for For Your Love by the Yardbirds or Glad All Over by the Dave Clark Five. I know that Ed is a big fan of the Dave Clark Five, so...
