    Default If Van Halen Are Done, Will You Accept Eddie 100%

    Lets say that a couple more years pass by - both Dave and Sammy are not returning to Van Halen and Eddie/Alex have confirmed the death of Van Halen.

    Now of course we would all buy whatever Eddie does next, but could you really dig Eddie in a new band of his that wasn't remotely like Van Halen. Now of course a new band isn't supposed to sound like Van Halen per se, but what if Eddie did something like Aerosmith's Just Push Play with that hip hop electronica style or whatever they were trying to achieve on that album.

    What if like a few former rockers - he wants to do his own version of The Great American Songbook. Or do an album with Michael Bolton. I am joking, but Eddie fans always say that they would buy whatever he does next - and I think they assume that it will always sound like Van Halen The Band. If Van Halen is truly over, how would you feel if Eddie's days as a hard rock guitarist are also over and he wants to do a pop album or a Santana thing with the young vocalists of today. I am just curious if there will ever be a point, where anyone would just stop listening to new Eddie Van Halen for whatever reason.

    Yeah they're pretty good.

    btw - the question in this thread is too much for my comprehension at the present time.

    Nope, currently I'm putting the final touches on my David Coverdale shrine. I just scored the primo centerpiece off ebay for a measly 19.95...Tawny Kitaen's used and stained diaphragm from the late 80's.

    Score!

    Van Squalen,

    That's awsome. I would love to see pictures. Don't forget to pick up the Days of Thunder soundtrack - David sings the end credits song The Last Note Of Freedom (written by Billy Idol).

    Eddie would never joined another band. He's said that much. he would likely just fade away.

    My cat's breathe smells like cat food. But seriously, if ED puts whatever out, I'm going to buy it...whether I wind up liking it or not is a different story alltogether.

    I will accept whatever Edward wants to contribute to the music world. It may rank lower on a list of favorites just because some masterpieces can not be toppled, ie Fair Warning but can be appreciated for what they have to offer.

    I've said it a hundred times if I've said it once, if Ed's on it, I'll buy it...
