    Go dig up your copy of VH3 if you've still got one, and listen to Without You. Ed wrote the first 2 verses and the chorus (lyric-wise). Watch the VH Unleashed video clip if you can, or read some interviews from between '86-'95 or so. Watch Live Without a Net.

    Now, listen to 'Without You' one more time, and think of this question: "Is Eddie talking to Sammy here or what?"


    Hmmmm.....

    I think it's possible....I mean I don't have the VH3 cd but I heard it on VH Radio.. And Sammy did the same thing with Marching To Mars. Has anyone ever see the LWL music video from MTM? The monkey in the video is supposed to be Eddie playing the guitar. That video was supposed to get back at Eddie...so I think it's a possibility about Without You.

    Even the song is supposed to relate to Van Halen. Well the whole album was except the song Marching To Mars. Do It For Free was supposed to relate to what Eddie asked Sammy. He asked Sammy if he would do a greatest hits album for free! I like the LWL video myself.

    I've always thought that "Without You" was Cherone talking to the Van Halen fans. As in saying "I can't do it all Without You" Like he realizes this singer change is gonna ruffle some feathers with fans, and that if we want Van Halen to continue we need to support Cherone too.

    However in the end, it didn't work because after all we were not "With Him" (Cherone)
