    Eddie doing a solo project or an outside project might be a good idea for the man...but who knows what he needs, only he knows...

    I don't think he has it in him to step on his brothers toes.

    Exactly. And then there's always Starfleet, Donut City, Beat It, that thing with Roger Waters, etc. Eddie's had plenty of other outlets for creativity.

    Now is the time for him to be Eddie Van Halen again. Put the synthesizer back in the closet, drag out the old Frankenstrat and plug the goddamn thing in!! [img]graemlins/irked.gif[/img]

    Ed has always said that a solo project would only sound like Van Halen so why even bother doing one. He mentioned something along the lines of people doing solo projects because they can't get their creative juices out within the cconfines of a band and that's why they go solo. Ed doesn't have that problem in Van halen so I see his point.

    Ed's got his whole life ahead of him to do solo stuff with whomever he chooses after Van Halen runs its course, which no one here obviously believes has happened yet...

    If it's a toss up between Ed solo or VH with singer #4, then he should go solo and not sully the VH name/brand any further.

    I hope Eddie does the right thing and releases a new album with Van Halen. Just Ed, Al, Mike, and Sammy or Dave. Maybe when the band calls it quits for good, he could collaborate with other artists, but he should leave the "Van Halen" name alone.

    Yeah, its Kool when Ed jams with others.

    I dont think that Ed has a problem with "creative juices", Van Halen has become his band, he is calling the shots for the most part.

    Van Halen with Cherone is/was an Eddie VH solo project, imo.
