    Default Van Halen's smartest member is....

    Based on what you've seen over the years, who do you think is the most intelligent member of the group (past or present)?

    Based on the things I've read about him, my vote would go to Dave. He seems to be pretty well rounded in his intelligence as opposed to just being a smart business man (Sammy) or an intuitive genius (Ed). Or maybe Mikey's the smartest? For a guy with fairly modest talents, he's carved out quite a life for himself.

    My vote goes to Mikey. He is able to balance almost every area of his life unlike all of the others and I think that he is the only member of the whole clan that has any inner peace whatsoever. About the worst thing you could say about Mike is that he isn't the best bass player but he is a well rounded person. Literally...

    They all have their intellectual strengths. Mikey and Sammy are into foods, and cooking, cars and mechanics, business/enterprise savvy, and most importantly, family. Ed's the virtuoso, Dave's an explorer in the physical and metaphysical sense, Alex is into art and philosophy.

    You'd think with all the brain food available to them, they might figure out we'd like another new album.

    Dave - Ed said that "he's well read", but his is miscellaneous knowledge.

    Edward is the musical genius so I guess it depends in what area.

    No, he was the band's business manager until they started making it big. He's into art, religion, business etc. He's the only one of the band that I know of the has had any college. He's also the only one of the band that I know of the reads music. In college he help arrange the musical score from a college production, I can't remember which one it was before leaving. There was a link at the VHML to an interview with a British drum magazine with one of the road hands that said Alex was heavily into learning the production end of touring this last tour.

    From what I've heard, Al is an intelligent guy.
