    This sounds like a song that would be nicely suited for the current version of VH. Eddie and Dave, time to bring it out of moth balls.

    knowing eddie, he just might make it 6 minutes long and very uninteresting. But... maybe hes changed.

    He could make a little longer though, maybe around 4:20 or something.
    The guy must have so much material new and old laying around that if he sat with a good lyricist that they could really make 10 albums if they weren't lazy.

    I would love it if they would work up one of these classic demos one day. A straight ahead simple "rocker" of a tune. Nothing fancy such as MWM.
