    Default Do You Think Coverdale Was Briefly Talked About For VH

    Hey All,

    When the Coverdale/Van Halen rumors surfaced all over the world a few years back, do you think the band even remotely discussed him as a candidate for new lead singer.

    There actually was a strong support for Coverdale on some of the Van Halen sites - even this one and eventually even Alex Van Halen and Michael Anthony said that the rumors were not true, however you would have to think that while in a meeting with management or just at 5150 with Alex, Eddie and Mike - they thought for two seconds about Coverdale and guaged the sort of reaction that was going on with the fans who knew that DLR and Sammy Hagar were not coming back.

    With the statement that was issued from David Coverdale in regards to the rumors - I have to assume that David's name was brought up a couple of times in the VH camp. I do believe he was considered after all the media hype, but quickly was out of the running.

    What do you guys think?

    I honestly don't think anyone ever really considered it. It would've been awesome, but Sebastian Bach rumours surfaced once too remeber, and that just didn't make any sense to me. Rumours like that are to me, just rumours.

    Ain't Talking About,

    That's what I mean - do you think a bunch of names were tossed into a hat (Coverdale, Bach, etc.) and they briefly debated, listened to albums and discarded names eventually.

    Look, I don't care what anyone says - you can't have a number of websites about you and not ever go look at them. I think that is impossible. It is human nature to see what people think of you, so having said that - Van Halen have looked at this site numerous times and I am sure saw the Coverdale rumors first hand.

    So the words David Coverdale have indeed come out of Eddie's mouth during those rumors either as a gimme a break comment or a brief ponder if he might be someone to consider. Nonetheless, I know that VH guaged the reaction to the rumor and I truly believe that if the world was 100% for Coverdale - he would have been the singer for Van Halen.

    I recall when Gary Cherone was announced, Hard Radio reported that VH fans were in a uproar and Ray Danniels was actually getting phone calls telling him that he ruined VH and why didn't they get Sabastian Bach, David Coverdale or some of the other names mentioned -short of DLR or Sammy Hagar.

    I think the only time and place he was discussed was here twice, when that one ass clown surfaced with fabricated stories.

    Seriously though, liked Whitesnake, and the Coverdale-Page project sounded great (he pissed off Plant so much he damn near sued him for the "impersonation"). He's better as a solo act (ooops, I mean Whitesnake) than as a pinch hitter. Doesn't seem like Van Halen frontman material if you ask me--MAYBE the studio, but not the stage. Just my opinion!

    That's one person I wouldn't want to see in VH... He can sing, but I don't think he could capture the VH vibe at all.

    5150Tulsa,

    When Coverdale denied rumors that he was the new Van Halen singer, he did mention that he had much respect for Eddie and that he would love to work with him one day - but more in a Coverdale/Van Halen solo project ala Coverdale/Page, not in the band Van Halen.
