    Default What to do in case of a new album (??)

    I don't know much about the music business, nor do I know of any really big names of folks who are producers, engineers, etc., however from reading one other thread someone made mention that they hope Ed doesnt decide to do everything himself again. But, for fun, because we all know the chances of this thing lasting to the status of there being a new album is probably on the slimmer side, who are some big names of producers, or whoever, that VH could get to increase the chances of it being a good album? sound good, etc?

    Debate, gotta go, thanks
    If it sounds like bull shit, feels like bull shit, and appears to be bull shit, it's probably Eddie talking about his new lead singer being his new brother at a press conference...

    As long as Eddie doesn't produce it. He's proven beyond any shadow of a doubt that he cannot handle the production side of things. The guy who did Balance did a great job-that record sounds fantastic, even today. Anybody but Eddie, and they should stay away from Andy Johns because FUCK sounded very flabby.

    IF there were to be a new album, I would be curious to see what Rick Rubin could do with this band.

    Dodge the crap from the flying pigs overhead.

    I agree that a producer/some outside ears would help. The albums/songs with little or no outside influence (OU812, VHIII, BOBW songs) are my least favorite VH stuff. But who? Hard to imagine any contemporary big names hooking up with VH. Bob Rock? Terry Date? Brendan Obrien? Rick Rubin ( )? Don't see it.

    IMO Glenn Ballard did wonders with the sound of the band on "twister" and "BOV1". But Another guy that kicks ass, is Rick Parashar - Pearl Jam, Nickelback etc. Under rated.

    Man I would want Glenn Ballard or Brendan O'brien. I know Springsteen is a world away from VH but if you heard what he did for the E-street Band's sound on "The RIsing" he could def. come up with something great for VH.. and as far as Ballards work goes for VH.. Well the fuckin proof is in the tunes.

    My vote is for Mr. Shania Twain... errrr, Robert "Mutt" Lange...

    Ted Templeman would be a nostalgic pick, but he's long retired and up in years... but he seemed to get the VH sound just right.

    I don't necessarily think that Ed can't produce an album. I think that III proved that he can't self-edit well... he was too connected to the music he was trying to make, and was trying to experiment, and trying to pull it all off with a new singer to the band. If he had released it as a solo album, I don't think so many people would continue to bag on it.

    I think Mutt can help them quite a bit, and I wouldn't want to see them hook up with a Desmond Child - way too poppy. Rick Rubin may be an interesting choice, but given the kind of things certain artists have said about him, I wonder how much he really brings to the table. I think Bob Rock will have a hard time extinguishing St. Anger from his resume, although he's been connected to a lot of great albums.

    Is Bob Rock still around?
    He could really put some "kick" in kick-ass!

    Andy Johns is about as good as it gets. The only way that albums sounds bad is when you apply the stupid "smile" eq and boost the hell out of the low end. It may work on the earlier albums that had no low end but on properly mixed albums it will sound like shit

    They couldn't keep the ego's in check to work with Mutt Lange.

    "III" proved conclusively that EVH can't produce period. Its not about "self editing" its about having no knowledge about the basics of audio engineering. Its VERY obvious on the record.

    ANd before anybody wants to tell how Ed must be great because he can play guitar, just stop. One has nothing to do with the other.

    I think Butch Walker could do something with this band. For one, he loves CVH and he has a grasp of what music is doing today. The guy is basically the Desmond Child of the 2000's. If Mike was not involved, you could use the guy to help with background vocals. He can get up there like Mike and can also play bass.

    Plus he can bring Avril Lavigne around to bang Wolfgang.
