    Default Roth solo tracks you'd like to hear Halen re-record

    Suppose the decision was made to remake a few Roth solo tracks for a new VH compilation. I say "compliation" because I know nobody wants anything less than an all-new CD. So let's just say they decide to put out an EP or something just for shits and giggles.


    I wouldn't mind hearing the Halenized versions of......

    She's My Machine
    Yankee Rose
    Drop in the Bucket
    ALAE
    LowLifeFlatHeadScum

    Just Like Paradise - A newer version with more of an edge and less of an 80's sound would be a welcome upgrade.

    Tell The Truth - Great tune that is screaming for Ed to be the one squealing and improvising the fills. Great song as it is, but even better with the VH sound.

    Drop In The Bucket - Another tune that could really stand out as a Halen song.

    It's Showtime - A song that has serious potential but for me didn't work as well as it should have. Rework it a bit and let Ed perform the chops and it could be a great VH tune.

    VH with Dave ('78-'84) - The best years....the "real" VH.
    VH with Sam ('86-'96) - Incredible era....."We have renamed this town 'New Halen!'.
    VH with Gary ('98) - Fucking disaster. WTF was that??
    VH with Wolf/Dave ('12-'15) - Amazing comeback. Smokin' album and tours.

    It's practically "Get Up" as it is.

    Funny you make that comparison because I've always felt the same about Get Up. Something ain't right about it. Same as Showtime.

    Goin Crazy, I'd love to hear that song with Al on drums.

    Little Texas, I think it's perfect for VH.

    Thought I was alone with She's My Machine. I'd love to hear their take on it. Throw in Experience for me as well.

    They did do solo Sammy tracks live, but those were tracks from before Sam was asked to join VH. They would've never done solo Sam post VH, coz anytime post VH, you're basically a traitor to the VH family, wallowing in a musical purgatory before making amends to rejoin VH. Solo Roth was when he was a renegade, from the VH standpoint. They could do solo Roth from the Redball Jets. That would be authorized.

    I don't know that I'd like them to rework and Roth solo tunes but I've always wondered what it would be like if they reworked some of the VH tunes with Sammy. I'd love to hear what Roth would have done with Source of Infection, Big Fat Money, Amsterdam, Sucka in 3 piece, & some of the other "guitar heavy" songs that Van Hagar put out.

    I'll never forget the time I told a friend back in 97 that DLR was putting out a greatest hits album of his solo work. His comment was "Oh, is it a single?"

    I like Dave's solo stuff just as much as VH. So i wouldn't want them redone. I have always felt many of his songs would have been bigger if they had the VH brand on them. If I had to pick 2, Relentless & Tell the Truth.

    I don't know if the powers that be would let edward play a song called 'tell the truth".....it'd be like a vampire trying to wear a crusifix or something..his hands would just be repelled from the guitar.

    Bingo. I'd love to hear those two sing Damn Good.

    Black sand is a great track as well...likely my fav off DLR Band.

    I'd also add going crazy to this one....it really should have been on 1984.
    Winners come and go; legends are forever.
