    Having heard that Dave's in talks with Rick Rubin about possibly producing his next solo album, I've got some ideas. Here they are. Let me know what you think:

    1. Rick Rubin is hired as producer and goes after the classic Van Halen "big rock sound."

    2. A few Santana-esque collaboration tracks are included. Although I'm sure many readers will lash out at me for this, I would suggest a duet with Mick Jagger, a track with Lenny Kravitz, and a funky hard rock track (similar to "When Push Comes To Shove") backed by The Red Hot Chili Peppers. Although Dave isn't too keen on duets or jam sessions with other artists, this would help expose him to an even larger audience and boost radio airplay.

    3. One or two roots rock tracks (a la "Could This Be Magic" and "Big Bad Bill") are included. Maybe it's a cover of a classic blues song. That type of material really helped diversify the Van Halen releases, something that VH really hasn't done since.

    Although Dave sometimes veers off base, I have great faith in Rubin handling the production duties of his next album.

    Good points.

    I wouldn't count on Rubin producing the record, even though I think his involvement would be great for Dave. If he does get involved, he would be smart to ask for payment up front.

    I hope DLR's next album is with Eddie, Alex, and Mike. I mean, Dave's solo sfuff is cool, I like all of his albums, but it ain't VH.
