    I honestly believe that if you took ANY of the original four guys out of the mix, it wouldn't have happened. Eddie is the musical engine, it could never have happened without him. Dave was the necessary extrovert with the smarts to see the big picture, it could never have happened without him. Without even mentioning his great drumming skills, Alex is a spiritual compliment to Edward, and without that it never would have happened. Take Mikey's voice out of the mix, or slide in a bass player that felt compelled to musically compete with Edward and Alex, and it never would have happened. And then even with all that, it took a hell of a lot of luck and timing for them to go the distance.

    That's my take anyway. Good topic for the Opinions/Speculation forum, so I'm going to send it over there now. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    In all honesty, I think that if none of them (except ed and al of course) ever met, ed and al would have made it, Dave would have made it, and Mike would be a bouncer at the whiskey. Now, pretending this way, I would say that by looking at Daves musical preferences, if he were in charge of a different band where he lead musically, he would not have made it. He needs talent backing him that can provide a direction to his own talent. He is not the creative force, he is the showman and the voice. If he hooked up with a different band that had a lot of musical talent....well, it would have been great to have two kick ass bands to choose from at that time. Dave and his band and Ed and Al with whatever other frontman they hooked up with.

    Ed and Al would have made it anywhere, with anybody. You just cant deny the genius in the music no matter what. It would have surfaced somewhere at some point without a doubt.

    Mikey, well, I love Mikey but I know that he really doesnt have that much talent musically. Van Halen was a perfect band for him. The talent was already there, the voice and the show was there, he just needed to supply good fundementals and backbone. He brought powerful harmonies to the table, but I'd imagine van halen would have found a way to succeed without him with another good fit. Just need a bass player with a voice, and I know those are out there.
