    Default Question about singers

    I was always curious about this...
    After VH split with Sammy, does anybody know how many different singers were approached for the job before the band settled on Gary Cherone?
    I've heard several thoughts on this... but have never heard a definitive list of who they were.
    (if such a list exists...)
    Anybody have the inside scoop?

    Mitch Malloy is the only "for sure" singer that I know of after Hagar left. Sass Jordan perhaps. David Coverdale was rumored to have been approached.

    I believe Jimmy Barnes and John Parr were mentioned as well, but I'm uncertain as to where they show up in the overall timeline.

    Le Car aka The Player aka Hey Man aka whatever he's using this week said that Ed was in love with Eric Martin from Mr. Big and wanted him to not only be in the band but to be his boyfriend.

    Yeah, but he got the name wrong. It was really that chick from Scandal. It's a common enough mistake.

    That was Scandal FEATURING Patty Smythe. I always wondered why she was featured, too...

    There are so many rumours over the Coverdale thing. The one I know of came from a guy who was the first I had heard mention such a thing, but he said that they had actually jammed some in Vancouver at LMS. Coverdale had recorded some stuff here with Page around that era, but seems to me it would be a bit early in the timeline as far as a replacement for Sam, but who knows with that lot! Maybe the wheels were already in motion.
    She looks so $#@!'n good ,so sexy and so frail....Somethin's got the bite on me, I'm goin' straight to Hell.

    Ed sure did have a thing for Patty Smythe. Sass Jordan too. Patty never auditioned as far as I know but Sass did for sure. It's funny. Ed first mentioned these two back just before the release of OU812 on rockline (at least Patty Smythe). Don't know how that made Sam feel, but my guess is he just wanted to do a side deal or something.

    If you read Valerie Bertinelli's book, you'll know exactly what kind of "side deal" Ed had in mind for Smyth.
