    Default Is 4 singers in one year a record?

    Was just thinking about this today. Is 4 singers in one year a record? It could be 5 actually, if Sass Jordan is included.
    Seriously, that year was turmoil. Sammy was in til May/June, then Mitch Malloy came in, then the attempt with Dave again, and Gary came in around September.....I dont think the "odd garage band" would of had the problems they had that year.

    I'm sure it is. I'm sure some little bar band has this record.......but Van Halen is giving them a run for their money..............oh my..........

    1996 was sure a pretty fucked up year for VH.

    Although we didn't know it at the time, yeah, there were 4 singers.

    The Mitch Malloy story didn't surface until a few years later actually, when Gary was already out of the band.

    The following is a link to a list of bands with different lead singers:
    http://rateyourmusic.com/list/musicm..._lead_singers/

    On a curious note, read what it says regarding the band's status after 1996...

    "Van Halen

    David Lee Roth (1974 - 1985, 2006 - Present)
    Sammy Hagar (1985 - 1996, 2004 - 2006)
    Gary Cherone (1996 - 1999)
    Note: The band was inactive from 1996 to 2004.

    1996 was also the year Van Halen died.

    One noticeable difference between Judas Priest and Metallica...
    ...Judas Priest only has one gay guy in the band.

    Yeah, pretty much.

    1998 also wasn't a highlight either, but 1996 was the pinnacle of a band that did just everything wrong.

    The reunion with Dave should've happened then (we did ge the two songs....but everyone wanted the tour and it didn't happen).

    When DLR walked out on stage with VH at the '96 MTV Music Awards, that should've been the start of something huge!!

    Yeah, 1996 will go down in history as the turning point in Van Halen's legacy. Everything seemed to be in place for Dave's return to the band and then it just blew up.

    It was: An at times embarrassing period of misplaced blame, recrimination and bickering witnessed by the ever more disenchanted VH fan base, that has offered only occasional "cease-fire" periods over the past twelve years.

    It should have been, but we now know that Dave was used for nothing more than to help sell copies of Best Of Vol.1.

    Ed had no intention of reconciling with Dave, sadlly.

    At the time of the Awards appearance, Gary was already selected to be the singer.

    Gary confirmed in an interview when he met Eddie in July of 1996 -- right at the time, Dave and the band were working on the two songs for Best Of. At this same time, Mitch Malloy was brought in.

    It was a disaster of monumental proportions.

    I doubt Eddie can kick anyone in the nuts these days, let alone Dave. (he couldn't have done it back then either).

    And please, the cup joke is like 12 years old. Why some here still feel the need to use it I don't know.
