    I would have to be Eddie, of course. But there are probably a lot of drummers, bass players, and vocalists who would want to be Alex, Michael, Dave, Sammy, or Gary.

    I'd want to be the guy that takes the trash outta 5150 right about now. Think they're paying him to make sure that it all goes to the dump, rather than being sorted out by Blair's one-eyed henchmen looking for signs of Dave?

    Eddie so I could be the best guitarist ever. There would be a few perks too. For example read Wham Bam Amsterdam's post.

    Hmmm...that's a tough one
    If I were Dave - I'd be out front and gettin' all kinds of chicks. But I'm married so that probably wouldn't fly. Plus I'd injure myself doing the leaps and kicks.
    If I were Alex, I'd get to be a monster on drums, which would be way cool, but then I'd be hidden back there behind the biggest, baddest drum kit in the world, and I don't know how that would work out.
    If I were Mike, I could play a mean bass and I'd be at the front of the stage where people could see me. But I'd have to take a lot of crap sometimes and worry about being replaced, so that wouldn't be cool.
    And if I were Edward, I'd be the coolest guitarist on the whole planet and people would love me for that, but I'd have to come up with new music every few years and if it was a departure, a lot of people would hate me for that, not to mention if I had problems with the lead singer, that wouldn't make some people happy.
    So I guess I'm happy being the 5th or 6th or 7th or how ever you want to count us member of Van Halen - the fan!

    I'd be Dave and make it a Groundhog Day kinda thang--where I could pick what day I wanted to repeat over and over. For instance,the gig where Van Rothin' opened for the Stones in the Tangerine Bowl,etc.

    can it be a member of the van halen family????


    if so, then I would be Scotty Ross!


    organize the tours, probably pretty close to the band on all kinds of matters both personal and professional.


    hell, scotty ross is probably their Tom Hagan!


    and remember, according to Eddie, scotty ross saved Dave from a black eye at Mtv96

    I would not really want to be Eddie because he is probably recognized like everwhere he goes ya know , and having a movie star for a wife . I mean Val's nice but if I was Alex I bet I could go out in public and not be bothered , does that make sense guys ? I would just love to be the drummer and watch this guy play everynight !!

    Spanish Doctor, I didn't say directly that some people would want to be Gary, I was just listing him as an option.

    I don't know if I'd actually want to BE Eddie, but I know what you meant by the thread. I would just want to have all of his musical ability, especially the guitar playing, of course.

    Ok I will come in and say Gary.The guy writes unbelievable lyrics. Listen to Extreme III Sides To Every Story. He can write stuff like "Stop The World" and go to "Cynical".And he is also a great great guy.
