    There's an article in this months Classic Rock Magazine in the UK about the Planet Us project - nothing new appart from a small paragraph saying Eddie is rumoured to be working with Eric Martin from Mr Big - is this a new rumour or have i missed this one?

    I remember hearing this rumor first back in 1989 in the German magazine "Metal Hammer". I also heard that he was thougt as the replace for DLR, but then Sam got the job.
    Obviously both rumors are wrong and i hope this one also turns out to be false cause i don't like Martin's voice that much and don't think he could handle beeing the frontman of Van Halen.
    Although he must have some friends at newspapers bringing that rumor out every now and than, which wouldn't be that bad for promotion.

    Yeah Eric's name has been brought up on a couple of occasions. I honestly don't know about this one. I could see him in a Sammy type vein but definately can't see him belting out Romeo Delight or Everybody Wants Some. If you think Gary got lambasted just wait and see what happens if Eric Martin gets the gig. Who knows anymore? It's all just speculation.

    Bad Cheese FORD! You gotta get Shullsburg or Darlington brand Cheese if you think it is the "great Cheese!"
    Martin is NOT VH material..he was good in Mr.Big for 85% of the songs...especially their 1st album...but you know there was a reason that Paul Gilbert went back to Racer X!!!!! And Sheehan hooked up with VAI!...I can just see the "cheesy name FORD would make if Martin's dream came true:
    "Van Martin"... [img]tongue.gif[/img] and I would argue his cheese again and say it's Van Halen. [img]graemlins/devil.gif[/img]
    Ohh..Ohh..satan might come out again [img]graemlins/sssh.gif[/img]

    If it ain't David Lee Roth, or maybe even Sammy Hagar, I ain't buying it, or even listening! FUCKING PERIOD!!!!!!!!!!! The fans like what they like, and if Ed don't like it, he should fucking QUIT!!!!!!!! PERIOD!!!!!

    It is true that Eric Martin went down to 5150 in 1985 to see if things meshed between Eddie & him when Dave left the band the first time. When he was an up & comer in the early 80's he had his Eric Martin Band which played a lot of local gigs in Sonoma County, where he was from. we had a few mutual friends & it got back to me that he had met the surviving members of VH after he had come back from SoCal, but felt uneasy about the whole thing because they (meaning Eddie mostly) were quite out of sorts due to certain substances.
    The guy's got a great voice, and he has shown in the past he can rock, but I don't know if I'd plop down 18 bucks for an album....
    Q: Recording the album took so long your Australian tour last year was cancelled. What was it like in the studio? There's a history of tension between you and Eddie Van Halen...

    DLR: It was like a stand off in a Chuck Norris movie. We each had the laser dot on everybody's forehead waiting for the other guy to blink. Except for Wolfie, he had a Super Soaker ...

    *Sigh*

    Eric Martin?!?

    Lord, that would be cruel and unusual punishment.

    What would Ed call this new line up/Album? 'My Favorite Martin?'

    I remember hearing on the radio before Gary was announced that the band were considering Eric Martin or Gary Cherone, I wasn't exactly pleased with either choice, no offence Mr Cherone.

    But seriously, this probably has no more basis in fact than the David Coverdale rumor or the David Hasselhoff "rumor."

    Well I'd like to go on record for thinking that Eric Martin would sound great in Van Halen.
