    Default VH goes bluegrass

    From Reuters

    Bluegrass label hot for Van Halen

    Fri Dec 16, 7:24 PM ET


    As he prepares to take over for radio icon Howard Stern in several markets early next year, David Lee Roth will soon be heard in another unlikely place: a bluegrass tribute album to his former band, Van Halen.

    Roth sings on versions of "Jump" and "Jamie's Cryin"' on "Strummin' With the Devil," due March 14 via CMH Records. Other Van Halen favorites given the bluegrass treatment include "I'll Wait," "Hot for Teacher" (by David Grisman and Sons), "Eruption," "Panama" and "Unchained."

    Los Angeles-based CMH has deluged the marketplace in recent years with bluegrass makeovers of everyone from Aerosmith and the Rolling Stones to the Strokes and Beck.

    You know, I was all ready to close this or move it to the Rumor Mill, but... what do ya know?

    One thing about Dave, he's never lacked the courage to go out on a limb. I sure would like to see him get back to his roots.

    I love bluegrass and think it's very cool. I have a Phish bluegrass tribute cd and it's great. It's certainly not a cash grab, These cd's don't sell well they're more for fun. I think it's great Dave is actually appearing on it. Of course he's much more open minded than a lot people.

    The cash grab was a joke (making light on the '04 Tour situation)

    Sounds lame to me....and that has nothing to do with me being Open Minded.

    How about Dave puts out a whole album of all originals with these bluegrass cats.

    Once again, dipping into the golden well from 25 years ago to get any credibility.
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    I think we get too critical of both Sam and Dave when they do stuff that we here believe is not "artistic" or is a cash grab. Maybe they both just do what they want to do and get paid for doing it. Wow, what a concept.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    I have albums from a band called Hayseed Dixie, who have released bluegrass covers of AC/DC and Kiss. Their best was a cover of Snoop Dogg's "Gin and Juice" which is hilarious!
