    jonas audtioned as vh lead singer???

    found this over @ melodic rock sure it's not true ???Hi, here's a story that i heard on a Montreal radio station. The singer jonas (http://www.jonas-music.com/home_en.html) did a couple of shows as a first part of Van Halen last year. A rumor says that it was probably a "disguise audition" for Jonas to become the next lead singer for Van Halen... I don't know on what it's based on but that's what the guy said.

    I saw Jonas in November '04 w/ VH and they weren't that good. They did a really bad version of Stevie Nicks' song "Edge of seventeen".

    I've heard many linkers refering positively on Jonas (as a band overally, and on a singer in particular), and I myself like their cover of Edge of Seventeen.

    I saw Jonas November 11, 2004 in the Fort, and think they are one of the better 'new' bands I've heard in the past couple of years. The lead sing (Jonas I believe) has a great voice and the band was great straight ahead rock...my opinion of course...

    "who the fuck is Jonas"?? I find this funny considering I didn't know who they were until i heard about them on this forum. I doubt this rumor to be true, but it's possible. If it happened i would buy the New VH disc. Jonas is a great soulful singer and would fit in well in VH. I just cant see him parting ways with his guitar player.

    I bought their album and there's a couple of rocking tunes on it, I also like the Stevie Nicks cover. The one thing about the album I don't like is that it sounds a bit too polished.

    If Ethel Murman weren't dead, I'd believe it.

    I'm picturing Ethel in her "there's no business like show business" period singing One I Want...Can you picture it? I can hear it in my mind and it is pure brilliance.
