    Hypothetical: VH Regroups W/ALL THREE Singers To Rerecord Solo Tunes As VH-Name 'Em

    OK, here's the basic conceit: All three singers along with the musicians, convene and decide that due to time and budget constraints, they shall re-record a handful of the singers' solo tunes to dump out on the general public, before launching a final "Heard Ya Missed Us, We're Done" tour.

    Now come on...most of us here are familiar with the work apart from Van Halen by these guys (OK, Gary...you get to include some Extreme songs, purely out of necessity) and have said to ourselves at one time or another: "Damn...I wish that he'd recorded that with VH."

    No limit to the amount, and you do not have to include all three artists. In fact, if you prefer one fellow over another, that's fair game as well.

    To kick this off...

    "Halfway To Memphis"-Sam Hagar And The Waboritas
    I can just hear the missing VH backing vocals on this one. And EVH's guitar is sorely missing throughout, particularly in the breakdown.

    "Skyscraper"-David Lee Roth
    Yeah, this record takes a lot of flack from just about everybody. Yet this track, when coupled with the thunderous playing of the band circa 1991-1993, would have flattened just about anything on the planet that stood in front of the speakers.

    Uhh...I'm having a hard time with a Cherone pick as well, yet more than likely it would have to be from "Extreme II: Pornograffitti".

    Alright...you folk decide the length of this project. Remember, the rest of it will be filled out with the usual round-up of "Greatest Hits".
    "The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man."

    Dave: Tobacco Road, Mean Street Acoustic (off No Holds BBQ).

    Sam: Heavy Metal, Marching to Mars

    I am not versed well enough in any Extreme/Tribe of Judah catalogue to offer an adequate suggestion for Gary, though I could get behind a remix of Fire in the Hole, in a new tone, preferably more Balance brown sound production, with intelligible vocals.

    I always imagined the band breaking into this as a small jam during the breakdown of BOBW in a live setting. I always thought it would fit, right before Sam started to sing "you don't have to die and go to heaven..."

    Ok, I'll play...

    Dave - "Yankee Rose", "Tell The Truth", "Mississippi Power", "Black Sand".

    Sammy - "Red", "Heavy Metal", "Make It Alright", "Things've Changed", "Karma Wheel".
    “And what we have at our fingertips is arguably one of the greatest high tenor voices ever – that was in Michael Anthony. In our tiny little corner of the universe, that voice is as identifiable as the high voice in Earth, Wind & Fire, as identifiable as the high voice in the Beach Boys. Van Halen is an indelicate house blend of both – that’s intentionally. So I would always look forward to that reunion.” - David Lee Roth

    Sam - When The Hammer Falls

    Dave - Knucklebones (just too damn wussy on album (nice producing DLR), it was awesome live)

    Gary - Holehearted is about the only song I like by Extreme or Gary in any form or function, so I will go with that one
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Sam - Little White Lie (I honestly think this song was meant to be a VH song....just keep listening to it...Ed could play some slide...with Sam playing guitar....it just fits in my mind)

    Dave - Don't know much of Dave's solo material so I gotta say Just Like Paradise

    Gary - Hole in my Heart...

    Dave - Hot Dog and a Shake, A Little Ain't Enough, Yankee Rose.
    Sam - Studio version of "There's Only One Way to Rock" with the dueling guitars, "Heavy Metal".

    Gary - ?? Don't know many songs from Extreme except More than Words, and I would rather listen to Kenny G than have Van Halen re-record that.
