    Default Let's Play Webmaster!

    If you were hired as the Webmaster for the Official Van Halen Web site, what changes would you make?

    I'd make it more interactive and have it almost be like a sneak peak into 5150 studios, but with each band member having their own "room". And there'd be a vault with downloads of "B" sides and outtakes. I know Ed would probably never agree to it, but I'm sure Dave would love to do a blog. I was out on Weezer's site and thought it was very fan friendly. It would be cool to be able to look at old music videos and interviews.

    The only thing I wouldn't have would be message boards because VH Links will always have top billing for that.
    Could this be magic?

    I think definitely behind the scenes stuff.... I've always wanted to see how Van Halen goes through the process of making a record...that'd be awesome! ...really though, basically anything that gives you another look at the band (i.e. NOT those crappy Guitar World interviews)

    I'd say "Why are you paying a webmaster to run a promotional site that isn't offering any product?"

    I think this is truly one of the best thread Ideas I have ever seen at the links.

    I'm sure this will be an entertaining thread.

    I'd create a "Latest, Breaking News" section, which would automatically redirect you to VH Links.

    Start streaming soundboard quality recordings of archived shows dating back to the band's inception. Of course, it would probably be a good idea to hire someone to actually create such an archive in the first place.

    An image gallery would be nice, along with a multi-media section featuring some wallpapers and icons.

    Oh, and have someone remind Ed that a few people are still waiting to hear that "Exclusive Audio" regarding the "5150 III Amp".

    Things I'd like to see...

    Pictures/8mm video of the Broken Combs

    Pictures or video of the young Ed and Al making any kind of music.

    Sammy counting his Tequila money....j/k!

    Video of Mike in the studio doing the backing vocals for Feel your love...and all the classics.

    Video of the guys hangin out at the VanHalen household in the backyard/high school party days.

    All the DLR stripper/groupie video....minus the midgets.

    Sammy vids/audio in the first few weeks/months arriving at 5150.

    Any vids of Sam, Ed, Mike, Dave, Al getting along and being friendly behind the scenes....to the point you actually believed they all enjoyed this ride as much as the rest of us.
