    Default If the three other than Eddie are bored....

    Honestly i can't say i've ever read this on this board or what not but check this idea out. If basically everyone who is involved with the band is well fed up with eddie (or so the rumours are...) or eddie is messed up or something, why doesn' alex, mikey and sammy record and album together and let sammy play guitar as a 3 piece. you know? i mean if it's supposedly about the music of the band, this should have been done or talked about right after the 2004 tour.
    seriously i think this is a logical and plausible idea. why i dont work for warner bros. in scarborough i will never know.

    Well, I guess they could include Alex in their group the Other Half but Edward's musical genius is what I crave from the group. If I want Sammy's output, I can always buy his new upcoming solo CD. You do know Edward writes all the music, right? Without him, it's well, the Other Half.

    well honestly how do you know that eddie writes all the music? he could have said that but knowing his boozing it may not be 100% accurate dude. and i dont even remember who the other half is. isnt it that band with lauser on drums that plays cabo once in a while? all 4 of them are very good musicians. and plus eddie isnt a factor anymore since he is hitting the sauce or whatever big time, hence my suggestion of a 3 piece without him.

    Sammy play lead guitar? You're kidding, right? Sammy playing a solo from time to time in the Warbarito bar band is one thing, but playing full-time lead in the "band" Van Halen is quite another. I've never heard an interesting solo written or performed by Sam....Sorry, just my opinion.

    Actually, I'm a dudette . Edward has said many times over the years he writes all the music and no one has jumped in and said he's full of it. I'm thinking that if it weren't true, Roth or Hager would have called him out for lying. I mean, Dave's telling the world Edward's on meth and he gave him the idea for striping his guitar. I can't imagine Roth wouldn't take credit for the music if he wrote it. I think there has been help with the bridges and that sort of thing to finish a song.

    Yes, the Other Half is what Sammy and Michael are calling it when they do a set of VH with the drummer and guitarist from the Wabo's. As for Edward, we have no idea if he's is still drinking since we never see or hear from him. He could be in a better place even as we type.

    Van Halen without Eddie. That may be the single worst idea I have ever heard regarding the band.

    If they where to release new MUSIC without Eddie, then it would be another SAMMY solo album, you could expect a MUSICAL MASTER PIECE like MAS TEQUILA.

    Without Eddie, there is NO Van Halen, and THEY know it.

    Yeah, Sammy's gtr is about as exciting as milk.
    How bout a pizza without cheese and a non-alchoholic beer with that idea.

    Do you really think Al is going to make music without his brother involved and call it VanHalen. C'mon get real The brothers have played music together their entire lives, and, I bet still do, and will in the future. If you look at this as a whole these guys have been playing music together for what??...fourty years now?? Eddie has said the only thing he hears in his monitor is Al's drums....kinda like his mommas' heart beat in the womb maybe?? And you think at this point one of them is going off on his own??? Blood is thicker than water, or money or Alcohol, or whatever else can get in the way. BTW, I'm sure these guys fight like all bros do, but does anyone remember any documented fights between the bros?? They're tight, and they keep their personal shit personal...it's between them!! No Ed or Al...No VanHalen!!

    so you obviously don't like mas tequila....why would you say thats what we could expect? the album AFTER that was much better anyway. and the album right before it was IMO his best as a solo artist. that was just an unnecessary rip on sammy cause you don't like him

    It is a great question, and I'm sure many if not all Van Halen fans have contemplated that at least for a millisecond. But what makes Van Halen, Van Halen is, well........Van Halen.......it's not the same without Eddie and it's not the same without Alex. There is no guitarist in the world that could even come CLOSE to Eddie. His sound is so unique, it's the same with Alex, but that's not the question at hand. To put it simply, Eddie, being the hardcore drunk he seems to be, he still writes incredible riffs. And whoever says that Eddie does all the writing, COULDN'T BE MORE WRONG!!!! They all write their own parts. Eddie handles the guitar riffs, Alex does the drum/percussion parts, Mikey does all the bass parts, and Sammy writes and sings the lyrics. So to make a long dragging out message short, NO....there is no way Van Halen would work without both Van Halen brothers. I bet that's never even crossed Alex's mind.

    It has been stated in many interviews with both Sammy and Dave that Eddie does not write all the music. Both Sammy and Dave have stated in addition to the lyrics they have a lot to do with the harmony. The classic VH with Dave was much more straight forward, so one would guess that Dave's harmony contributions are less than Sammy's. I think anyone who thinks that Eddie comes up with these complete songs with the exception of the lyrics is way off base (maybe excluding VH3).

    I wasn't saying that Edward writes the lyrics and I also mentioned that the others help with bridges and that sort of thing, but he does bring the music to the table and it's polished from there. (with the exception of III which he said the lyrics came first) But if I'm wrong, that's cool (been wrong many times before)
