    OK, who plays originals, who plays covers, and most importantly, who plays VAN HALEN !

    We play all cover tunes. If it's hard rock we play it. My favorite to sing: Runnin' With the Devil!

    Well wolfman,
    I mix a combonation of VH(dlr) and Seattle
    Grunge and made my own style "Van Grunge".

    I have enough material for about 2 alblums

    Now that I'm 25 it's hard to let go of a
    dream that I would be a musician.

    Cool, guys. As for myself, I've done a little of everything, but I've always managed to sneak some VH into the setlist in every band I've been in. My wife and I had an 8-piece together for 6 years. She sang lead with two chicks doing back up, I played lead and we also had Bass, Drums, Keys, and a second Guitar player. We did a lot of female stuff like Sass Jordan, Lone Justice, even some old Motown. In the middle of all this, I'm doing Eruption and Cathedral. We had a pretty decent following for a few years and were runners up (in a field of around 70) in a local radio station's battle of the bands. Right now ( no pun intended) I'm plotting my next move.

    The last band I was in we played anything from Alice In Chains, Janes Addiction, Nirvana to some VH and alot of originals. One problem I have is that I find it hard sometimes to sing back-up and play guitar. Anyone have similar problems??

    Depending on the material, singing back-up and playing at the same time can be like drinking coffee with a fork sometimes. I don't know how Ed does some of the stuff he does when he joins Mikey for backups.

    My band (Peroxide - coincidence, huh?) play mainly originals with the odd cover. Crue's Kickstart My Heart, Kiss Rock and Roll all Nite, and we're currently working on doin' Ain't Talking 'Bout Love. Because of that dance tune that came out a few years ago with the sample, we figure that the indie rock kids around here will recognise the riff, and hopefully they'll want to know more... I'd love to do "Jamie's Cryin'" but my guitarist has refused to play ANY Eddie Van Halen or Steve Vai. It's a miracle he agreed to ATBL..!

    In my band we play both but a lot of originals. But when you are live you have to do some covers because not everyone knows your songs. If we had to we could be a Van Halen tribute band. We play our stuff and I play guitar and also do my Jimi Hendrix tribute at night.I play Voodoo Child,All Along The Watchtower,and one or two more Jimi's. That is when I play with my teeth,behind my back and become Jimi.You know what I mean. Oh shit! They are doing a thing about the 5150 record on radio!Anyway we play Unchained into Without You we do Fire In The Hole Romeo Delite!! Hot For Teacher and Mean Street.

    My band is 90% originals and the rest obscure covers. Ever heard of the Meters? Galactic? Professor Longhair?

    We've got one tune so far at www.mp3.com/Gris-Gris

    Gris-Gris (pronounced gree-gree) is some voodoo shit, so we stick to a New Orleans funk niche.
