    Patty Smith was approached to replace roth?

    I did not know this... how come it is NEVER mentioned?

    just read this on Patty Smith's wikipedia page.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patty_Smyth

    "In the mid 1980s, Smyth became friends with Valerie Bertinelli and her then husband, Eddie Van Halen. When David Lee Roth left the band Van Halen, Eddie Van Halen invited Smyth to replace Roth as the band's lead singer. Smyth declined the offer.[1]"

    Patti Smith and Patty Smyth are completely different people. Patty Smyth (y sounds like eye) is the one you mean. And yeah, it's pretty common knowledge at least here.

    Very common knowledge, and like someone said it wasn't Patti Smith, it was Patty Smythe, you know the chick from Scandal with that "Warrior" song.

    Pranksters 21 so give him a break. He was'nt even born around this time. We (The oldies) know it as common knowledge, but he does'nt. Prankster, have you got the "Everybody wants some" book, its great reading for more recent fans. I recomend it. "The VH encycolpedia" is essential too.

    Patty would have been really great to hear in VH. I've got a live recording of EVH playing with Scandal. Patty's greatest hits album is well worth picking up.

    "Maybe We Went Too Far"? .........Sappy pop tune that not even Ed's guitar work could save.

    I liked her at the time, but was WAY glad they picked Sammy.

    Somehow....I just don't envision a string of #1 records for a Patti Smyth led VH. I'm glad things worked out the way they did.

    If Sammy never joined, I'd never would of gotten into VH.

    But I remember loving "The Warrior" when it came out. I've still got the original single at my familys house. She could rock!!!

    This has not been mentioned thus far, yet the impact could have been far more profound. In her book "Losing It", Valerie Bertinelli intimated that Ed Van Halen may have pursued Smyth to be more than simply his lead singer. If Smyth had in fact joined the band (and things reached the conclusion that EVH may have intended), the marriage between Bertinelli and EVH may have gone in the tank.

    The net result? No Wolfgang Van Halen playing bass with his father in 2007-08. In fact, Wolfgang Van Halen would never have been born.

    Who's to say Smythe wouldn't have popped out a kid that would tour during '07/'08?

    I dunno. I was relieved this never came to fruition. If you ask me, that was
    the first of a long line of wtf moves Ed would make everefter. Everyone knew
    Scandal was crap even in the 80s. But then, I thought Sam was a bad choice.
    Not to rehash old arguments (redundant as this thread is) But he was
    Mr. Mediocrity at the time. I think that's what a lot of fans didn't like
    about Van Hagar.
