    Default Could Eddie Van Halen Join Another Band

    Hey All,

    Like many other rock guitarists that have gone band hopping - Steve Vai from Roth to Whitesnake and now Tracii Guns from L.A. Guns to BOD to Quiet Riot (two examples), if Van Halen is indeed over - could you remotely imagine Eddie Van Halen joining some supergroup of established rock stars or filing in the guitar spot with some famous band, where their guitarist has quit or been fired.

    Many other guitarists have done it and while I certainly think that Eddie is king, I imagine at some point - someone is going to ask Eddie if he would be interested in joining such and such band if Van Halen is officially over.

    What do you guys think?

    Stranger things have happened...

    As long as it's got Ed's name on it, I'll buy it...

    Yeah... I was hoping that Ed, Alex and Mikey would join the DLR Band.

    That will work for me, if the VH reunion falters...

    Could he? Sure, He can do whatever the hell he wants.


    Should he? Probably not, but stranger things have happened.

    Do I want him to? Of course not.


    What band would you like Eddie to join?

    My guess is a band that starts with "W" and ends with "hitesnake"

    I just wonder if fans of Van Halen, could handle and accept Eddie if he was the guitarist in some supergroup of 80's rockers or filing the guitarist spot in some classic rock band ala Deep Purple or James Gang

    If it's good, then I will like it.

    Anything Eddie does, I'd give it a chance, but if you are asking if I WANT him to work with someone else, then the answer is hell no.

    Greenpaw,

    I won't lie to you - I would love Eddie to play with David, but maybe not as Whitesnake. More like a Coverdale/Van Halen project. But that was not the point of my post.

    I was just thinking that if Van Halen is over - someone is going to call him at some point and ask if he would like to join an established band or start a new one. Other equally known and talented guitarists have done it and I certainly don't think that Eddie would rule it out if the right offer came his way.

    Possibly Eddie might like the idea of not having to be the focus point of the band and do the majority of the songwriting - but instead just play kick ass guitar for some other big band, where songs are already written. Again, this is of course and only based on if Van Halen is over and Eddie's solo instrumental album hasn't set the world on fire.

    Ed doesn't seem to have a reputation of enjoying others having control of the music.

    Greenpaw,

    Well if reports are true and I believe they are - he was dying to ditch his own band for KISS, when he just couldn't deal with DLR.

    Yeah but that was a long time ago. Ed's established himself since then, he doesn't need KISS or any other band to show the world what he's got (or had )

    Anything could happen, but I doubt it.

    Greenpaw,

    So what are the options then?

    1. VH with DLR will NEVER happen - at least in terms of a full album (possible tour where they will want to kill each other during it).

    2. Sammy could happen again, but would people really want it and would it last?

    3. A solo Eddie album would sell very little.

    So will Eddie be that musician that we just never hear from again or will he suck it up and do something new with someone else.

    Since you asked - if Eddie did do something with David Coverdale, would it kill you if it was opposed to Eddie doing nothing at all?
