    Default Goofy Request from the Halenites

    Wasn't sure where to put this, but I need Van Halen Trivia. There's another board I belong to and I need some damn good stuff. I am drawing a complete blank tonight. Any help would be much appreciated. CVH, SVH, etc.

    Just don't go thrashin on each other in this thread. I want it to be fun for all involved. It'll help me out with a music challenge deal I have in this other thread. Thanks in advance.

    Ask Brett if he's got the old VH101 forum hidden still. Anything you need would be in there.

    I don't know whether this counts as trivia or not but Mitch Malloy said he was hired as VH's singer before Gary but Ray Danniels talked the band out of it, too bad he sounds like a great singer to me. What else, I'm sure you know the only unreleased studio track to ever make its way out to the public is Thats Why I Love Ya, great tune by the way. I'm not sure what else but I would guess that there is tons of dumb trivia that everyone knows but doesn't think is all that important.

    I think Sass Jordan was tried after Dave left the band in '85.


    Little known trivia:

    Who else besides Sass auditioned@5150 before Sammy came in?


    Answer: Eric Martin (known from Mr.Big). Sammy actually met Eric at the airport, just when Eric came from 5150 and Sam was going to 5150. Pretty funny.
    Ed loved the voice of Eric and invited him, but was shocked to find out that Eric was a "little kid" when Eric arrived.
    Ed thought he looked too young for a band like VH.

    Here's a bunch of FAQ's. Some are easier/more well known than others but I'm sure there are a few you could pull from:

    RD is the AntiChrist, but he didn't talk the band out of using Mitch Malloy. There is an interview here on the Links with Mitch. He said after the MTV thing with Dave, he didn't feel he'd be accepted as the new singer and gracefully bowed out.

    I read that eric actually didnt show up.He said in a metal sludge interview or an interview on melodic rock a few years ago.
