    Hey guys,
    What if VH announced they were working with DLR, but came out with a new name. How strange would that be, if the legal issues with Daniels were so great that they didn't want to wait anymore and just came out as (lol) MAMMOTH!!! Sorry guys, just in a goofy mood.

    I do think it would be cool if they played some surprise club dates under the Mammoth name.

    Yeah, Glenn, a few club dates under the name "Mammoth" would certainly be cool.

    How about calling their new album "Mammoth"?

    Doing so at this point is moot, since

    1) We never had any guarantee they had legalities to work out

    and

    2) If there were legalities, by now they're solved.

    Besides, would you want to tell your friends your favorite band was a name something like "Van Helen"?

    How 'bout just "Halen"? I hope they don't have to resort to anything like that though - get the lawyers the f**k outta there and let the boys make some music already!

    Point taken GUITARSOLOS but Ed, Al, Mike and Dave were Mammoth before they were VH so technically that is their real name. I think it would absolutely rock if They came out as Mammoth. They'd never do it because it would effect record sales because nobody would recognise the band (we would but not many "casual" listeners would). But it would truely rock if they played the LA club scene as Mammoth. Everybody would get so fired up!!!

    Why not go back to Ed and Al's name of their first group?

    "Broken Combs"

    And hit a couple clubs under that name.

    The hardcore fans would certainly have an advantage in getting good tickets!

    The legal issues would stop? Wouldn't them changing their name be a legal issue? And like someone said, their sales would drop! They'd have to do some major advertising, and with the remasters thing we all know how Warner Bros. is about advertising!

    If Van Halen changed their name, it would be a bigger disaster than what's going on in Florida right now!!! Not a good idea!!!
    If they were to change their name (with no legalities or crap like that) I would pick:
    The Wolfgang.
