    Default A cool idea for new album if Eddie wont record again!!!

    This is just an idea, thats all. If VH wont record an album anytime soon, they could release a compilation of their hard rockers/heavy stuff, like what Queen did with "Queen rocks!!" back in 97. ....and if a tour comes up, they can tour in support of it. Call it "VH Rocks!!!" Its not a best of, its just VH's straight ahead rockers from the Dave years.....AND.....if Eddie wanted to throw in some old rarities like "Babe dont leave me alone" or "Put out the lights" that would be cool too.
    It wont happen. But it would be something from VH to put back on the shelves.

    Heres just an idea..

    VH Rocks!!!

    I liked what Queen did with their...Rocks! album. It was a great way to reintroduce themselves to a new generation. I'm sure Van Halen would benefit from doing the same thing.

    One problem, there is some laziness in the VH camp.

    It's caused by an abundance of cash.

    Or it could be contentment, which is cool. Being happy and taking it slow is a great thing, if you can pull it off (without shitting all over the folks who are interested in knowing how things are going. A simple "life's good, see ya much later" would suffice, whereas the Iommi interview was just another trainwreck).

    But yeah, one would think that releasing multiple compilations would serve to bankroll a life of happy solitude. I bet Warner's would find a way to put it in the hands of the public, if they could.

    In the meantime, let them eat nothingness.

    The word "love", followed by a buncha "woo-woo's", wouldn't be dripping like syrup on a compilation of the heavy stuff.

    But really, this is what mix CD's are for.

    I made plenty of those on cassette tape in the 90's. Van Halen Love Songs (every song with love in the title... there's a lot.), Sammy Van Roth (solo Sam and Dave stuff with selected VH songs.) Sammy -vs- Dave (a good ten years before Best Of Both Worlds.), Van Halen meets Drivin-N-Cryin, etc., etc., etc.

    IMO there is just no way to repackage anything that the fans haven't already tried.

    New music please... when ever you're ready. Dave being back means absolutely nothing at this point.

    Unreleased stuff would be the only way I'd ever buy a CD. I have the albums already and two greatest hit packages. I can easily burn a CD, or make a playlist on my Ipod. I got to believe a kid who is 13-18 feels the same way. I don't see Greatest Hits packages selling like they used to when you can go onto Itunes or illegal sharing site of choice and just pick and chose what songs they like.
