    What do you want on VH's next album?

    The hope is that Van Halen will do a new album in 2008. Assuming the current band lineup (DLR, Eddie, Alex and Wolfie), what kind of music/songs would you want on the album?

    For example, you might just want exactly what they did during the CVH era. Hard rock, sexy. Or you might say, well, they're too old to do another Hot for Teacher, but otherwise, keep it much the same. Or you might want music that reflects their current age or musical interests, or for them to bring their music style up to date.

    Covers? They're so damn good at them! They've improved every cover song they've ever done, IMO. Or maybe you want all original songs.

    New work, or dig up some of the stuff Eddie had lying around back when Dave left?



    Here's what I'd like to see (hear).

    They can still rock hard, so keep that. Lots of Alex's drums. Maybe a new guitar piece from Eddie, preferably one where he's not shredding. My favorite bit is the part in Panama where Dave is saying "I put my hand between my legs and ... ease the seat back." Eddie is doing some fine sexy guitar at that point. There are other songs where he's actually making music rather than innovating noises - I'd go for more of that. For Dave, songs where he makes the most of that virile voice he still has - but no Borscht Belt warbling (or whatever that is).

    For song themes, NO POP. A few sexy things from the viewpoint of full-grown men (as opposed to overage adolescents). Maybe, novel thought, songs on other topics. And I'd love to hear them revamp a cover or two. And I'd love to hear a couple of the ones Eddie had from back then that never got made.

    Wolfie has proven his stuff re choosing songs for the current tour, so give him a vote when deciding what to put on the album. And let him have a say in what he wants to do musically. Maybe a drum duel with Alex? Or a guitar duet with his dad?

    VH I style, but also some more stuff like Me Wise Magic would be cool.

    How Many Say I (reprise) with Wolfgang on vocals.

    hahaa ... seriously.... I would like some unreleased studio tracks with some new stuff ... maybe 3 new tunes and 15 unreleased studio gems. I want the tracks from 2002.

    I agree they should still bring it hard and heavy but contrary to what LoveWatching Eddie sais there would be nothing wrong with something poppish. Radio play and a hit is something EVH could handle after so many rough and dark years. Plus pop w/Roth would be fresh and new. A pop hit with Roth might just be the goal in fact. I'm not talking Hagar pop...ballads etc...Santana made it real, fresh and sexy with airplay. I'd like to see Eddie smiling again if you know what I mean...

    ...and yes some solo work on guitar would be lovely. I also agree that they should reflect their age and maturity by possibly moving on from what they've already established. Imagine an upbeat piano (not keyboard) piece with Roth a la Zepp "fool in the rain." Imagine more acoustic stuff like "could this be magic." bluesy stuff maybe too. I know roth can't go as high on vocals.

    shit I'll take anything. I really hope they can make something happen.

    If eddie were down and out on a sidewalk playing guitar I'd be next to him with a bottle and a blanky braving the cold. I would be sucking my thumb happily making chupa chupa noises in sync with the petroglyphic sounds that came from the mighty finger tips of Edward Van Halen.

    Sorta like Fair Warning with a big "hit" thrown in somewhere. Along the lines of Me Wise Magic. Something pretty dark but with 1 or 2 "bright" songs in the mix to reflect Dave. Every once in awhile Ed would throw out some very interesting and dark riffs on the '04 tour which seemed appropriate for this day an age. (even though he was probably drunk) Just my .02

    I want them to pick up right where they left off with CGTSNM and MWM. Those songs were great.
