    Default Jeff Berlin

    I've read interviews over the years with this guy saying he was asked to join VH around '82. If the tour is still on without Michael Anthony he'd be my top choice as a replacement bassist, for real! I guess he turned them down due to his jazz influence that year. I'd love to hear JB with Van Halen...

    Anyone else know of this?

    No, that name doesn't sound familiar, but I haven't scoured old interviews like some here have. It'll certainly fuel the MA conspiracy theories.

    I think the "MA Conspiracy Theories" are gonna end up like every other theory we've had in the good ole USA.

    1. Is Jimmy Hoffa still alive ?
    2. Why is Tupac still making albums?
    3. Did man really walk on the moon?
    4. Why does the US Gov't say that AREA 51 does not exist?
    5. Missles were shot at the World Trade Center, not planes....

    Ya get my drift.

    Jeff Berlin is by far the baddest bassist alive. Not just a soloist but a great songwriter as well.

    Here is a cool pic of Ed, Allan and Jeff from 1981.



    I have a recording of that jamsession, but it's pretty tough to listen to.

    Ed drunk out of his mind made offers to tons of musicians to join VH - Jeff Berlin, Billy Sheehan, jimmy Barnes, Sass Jordan, etc.

    Most of these people took it to the bank and went on talkin about it during interviews to try to make themselves look good.

    But long time VH fans know better. Were they offered the position by Ed, Alex and the band's then manager? That's a real offer to join VH. Anything else doesn't count. And these guys did not get a proper offer from the complete business entity named "Van Halen."

    A drunk EVH didn't call the shots back in those days. Case closed.

    Me too. That vocal range is hard to come by. I'd still love to hear at least a Jeff Berlin jam with Dave/Sammy, Ed and Al though.
