    How will the new album sound with Dave? Will Van Halen pick up where they left off with Dave in order to pacify long time fans or will they go for a new sound in order to gain mainstream interest, like, for example the Bon Jovi single that we all heard over and over this past summer? Or, will they create a new sound alltogether?

    I would hope that Van Halen doesn't spend too much time worrying about what sound will please what group of people. Hopefully they'll write a set of great tunes and make sure that they sound full and big. I believe that they make their best music when they are trying to please themselves first, and I think they should stick with that instinct.

    I remember hearing eddie say once that each album has a new sound, not purposely, but because of evolution. Evolution in the person and the playing. There will definately be a new sound.

    I doubt they'll be trying to capture any kind of sound. I'm sure if Dave's back we'll catch glimpses of classic Van Halen, but it's gonna be a new sound, no band sounds the same after 25 years in the business.

    I remember reading an interview with Eddie and he said that he was lucky because no matter what he played, it always wound up sounding like him. I think that's true. He's got some intangible thing with his music...you can always tell it's Eddie.

    He also said that he didn't listen to the radio or other artist's music much, and was not influenced by it either. It was funny because he said that, with his son, all he had been listening to was Sesame Street and other kids shows and that, if he was going to be influenced, he'd probably come out with something that sounded like Yanni.

    Eddie playing Yanni tunes...if anyone could make that stuff rock, Ed could!
