    What if they were planning to put out another "Diver Down" type of album with mostly covers and a few new songs.

    Dave said that they wrote 3 amazing tunes and with that "magic carpet ride" rumor has anyone thought of this possibility?

    The only way I could see that is on the basis that it would be much easier to record cover tunes, because the arrangements are already pretty much pre-determined. So if being in the studio together is a problem, these type of songs would be easier to finish.

    But Eddie has claimed that there are several albums worth of songs recorded and we all know his feelings about Diver Down, so I can't see this type of album coming from Van Halen.

    Yeah, if Ed says they've got two or three albums of music then there's no need to include any cover songs.

    I would puke my guts out over and over again if they pulled a shitty stunt like that. Hell, even if they had NO music written and ready to use and just did it to hold people over, they'd still have no excuse.

    I don't EVER want to see Van Halen do another cover song. If I got my wish and Sammy came back, and they tried to do a mostly/totally cover album, you'd quickly see my attitude toward a Sammy reunion change.

    I don't want to just hear VH play; I want to hear them play what they write.
