    Default The forgotten lead singer!!

    Isn't it true the VH boys offered the job of replacing Dave...origingally to Patty Smyth of Scandal?? This is only here-say to me.....but, I did see her on VH1 saying it is true... wow, why?? I know she was a hot commodity at the time, and hey a great, really strong voice, but, did Ed and Al really think it would work?? I can't say it would or wouldn't....I mean we wound up with 5150...what would we have gotten instead??

    The story I read (or maybe seen on VH1) was that she made a comment in an interview that said something like she jammed with VH and they talked about it and she didn't do it because she didn't think that VH fans would accept it, then she said something like, "Sorry Sammy, you were 2nd choice." I do not know that I have ever heard anything official from the VH camp that they offered the job, but I think we all have a pretty good sense that over the years they have jammed with several singers at different times and VH has not confirmed that they did so with any of them, so but it seems like an aweful lot of people turned down the job if you believe the rumors.
    "I write and play music for a living, I'm not a businessman. It seems like all attorneys ever do is stir up trouble. They create problems that never existed and ream you for half your money, then they try to fix what they started and nail ya for whatever money you got left. I'll tell ya, man, I don't see how these guys sleep at night." --Edward Van Halen

    Q: who was the biggest douche that you have worked with?

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Edward has confirmed this more than once...

    During their "hiatus," Edward confirmed in an interview in the 90's that they pondered several singers to jam with them...and Patty Smyte was one of them...and that at the time...they had worked out some songs for singers like Phil Collins and Peter Gabriel...and that Smythe would have been part of a VH album with a group of singers...

    kind of the original idea to what Santana ultimately did...

    They still ended up with a female singer though...that Wind Beneath My Wings song they did with Bette was pretty good for a chick tune...

    Just think...if they got Smythe...Eddie and John McEnroe could play guitar onstage together right now...and damn if Johnny Mac couldn't probably out-axe Eddie right now...
