    I think that unless they get back Sammy or Dave (not that I am saying they should) then they need to leave the name "Van Halen" alone and pick a new name, because that it what it would be, something new. I'm not a big Rage against the machine fan, but I respect the fact that they changed their name to Audioslave after picking up Chris Cornell, because what they did was something different, and thus needs a different name. I think Eddie should have done that when Gary came in, but oh well. I have no problem with a new singer, I just want to hear Ed's riffs again, but please........name the band something else, maybe they could name the band "Actually Talented" as opposed to every other piece of shit band out there. They could name the new album "We Actually Wrote These Songs, Not Some Hired Writer". Man, must me my male PMS coming out.

    I agree with you, especially if they do not include Mike. VH will not sound like VH without mike.....How about calling it the, "Eddie Van Halen experiment?"

    Why? It's Ed and Al's last name and if they're together it should be Van Halen. But I think you have to include Mike also.

    No way, Van Halen should stay Van Halen. Most of the bands that have been around for more than 20 years would never dare to change their names. Rolling stones, Aerosmith, Def Leppard. Its the History of the name that sometimes makes the band look even better.

    I think they should keep it too. Look at the Allman Brothers. Duane Allman has been dead for 30+ years and they still kept their name.

    Well does Audioslave play RATM and Soundgarden tunes? I don't think they do probably a big disappointment to fans as well.

    Van Halen needs a singer that can sing all their albums along with new stuff. The name is fine the way it is
