    So some friedns and I were drinking last night having a good time listening to Van Halen tunes on vhradio.com and jamming along with them on our guitars when a starnge subject came up. My friend Mark started talking about the new lead singer situation and he made a comment about the Smashing Pumpkins breaking up and how Eddie and Billy Corgan became friends after interview they did together in Guitar World a few years back. It had to be the booze talking but none the less he said he wouldn't be surprised if Billy had done some work with Van Halen. Wow, I flipped out!!! No way in hell would Billy be the new singer! Sure it is possible, anything is possible but that just wouldn't be right. Could you imagin what kind of music would come out of that line up? It would be interesting but it isn't gonna happen. Just thought you guys would like to tear into that theory. My two cents... it had to be the booze talking. Cheers!

    There were some reports of Billy C. being seen at Ed's house last year, if I remember right.

    Billy is a huge Vh fan but I can't see him joining Van Halen. Styles aren't the same. Maybe if they got together and did some side project; that would be cool. People keep asking, along with about a hundred other questions, who the producer is for the next VH album. Who knows, maybe he's the one?

    It would be interesting to see what they came up with on a side project. It would also be cool to hear what they would come up with, with Robert Plant. Maybe Page worked with the Crowes cuz Plant was working with Ed...Dodo Dodo Dodo Dodo anyways...cool speculation as long as it is a side project.

    I could never imagine Billy Corgan singing for Van Halen, but I could certainly see Eddie and Billy jamming and having the tapes rolling on it. They totally seem like the kind of guys who would plug in their guitars and the next thing they knew it would be 2 days later.

    God I hope not!!!!

    I can see it now, their doing their first show and Billy says "now we are going to play 1979"

    Then Eddie, Alex & Mike look confused so they break into "Dance the Night Away",

    Billy then says, "Guys, I meant the song 1979"

    Then Eddie goes to the keyboards and starts playing "1984"

    Billy shakes his head then picks up his guitar and plays the intro to "5150"

    Eddie is now pissed & takes his Wolfgang and throws it at Billy & hits him in the head and kills him.

    Peace

    Dude, what's up with the violent ending to your scenario? You want Ed to go to prison and get gang raped and made into a bitch by some large biker doing 20 to life? Then when Ed got out he would make music like Tool and everybody would be pissed sayin' shit like, " Why Eddie change his sound? He sound like that guy from Tool singin' about prison sex! This shit sucks!! I don't won't to be listening to music in which the guitar sounds like somebody's ass-hole being ripped open, in a shower, with a 10 dudes lined up to get a piece!!"

    So, you see Eddymon why you shouldn't end your stories in violence? It only begets more violence and misery.

    As much as I like Billy, I hope to God that he is not the one. I think he and Eddie could do some cool side project type thing, but not for VH.

    I'm with SNM on this one, not for VH! My opinion though of BC is after he had a razor clean haircut it went all downhill from there. SP had two good alblums that I could tolerate, the first two. Other than that I think BC turned into some morbid freak. Lol ... The drummer though for their latest alblum, the one who replaced the overdose, is badass IMHO.
