    Music Legend Says No To Joining Van Halen



    04/28/2010
    .
    Not many musicians would turn down a gig with Van Halen. But most musicians aren't Jeff Berlin. We received the following announcement about Berlin's new album, 'High Standards,' but the part about Van Halen was so compelling that we had to lead with it. So read on for that story and details about his new album! Jeff Berlin's resume reads like the who's who of the higher echelon of music artists. Jeff Berlin was even asked to join Van Halen, an invitation that he actually turned down.
    "Eddie Van Halen was a fan of the band that I played in with Bill Bruford," Berlin recalls. "We met and started to hang out and jam together. He was a sweet terrific guy. One day he saw me play a gig with my group and then asked me if I would like to join Van Halen. After this, we rehearsed at David Lee Roth's house a couple of times. Ultimately, I said no to his gracious offer because when you join a band, you join the entirety of it, the life philosophy of its members and also the habits that they may be involved with. I felt that, in terms of activities and attitudes, I didn't mesh with their vision of things. I didn't wish to be mercenary and just take the job for money because it wouldn't be fair to the band members. So, I just said no to the offer."

    Jeff Berlin is a legend of the electric bass, considered by many to be the finest electric bass player in the world. A true master of the bass, Jeff Berlin has played with the likes of Bill Bruford, George Benson, Allan Holdsworth, and even toured with original members of Yes (Anderson, Wakeman, Bruford, Howe) on only three days' notice. Much to the anticipation of his fans, Jeff is releasing a new jazz trio CD on his own MAJ Records label titled 'High Standards'.

    Um, we don't even know when this happened. So this could be weeks or decades old. We just don't know.

    I think it was in the Fair Warning days,
    around the same time they approached Sheehan (the first time)?

    Yeah, this is even listed in Jeff Berlin's Wiki page so it's old news.

    Wolfie Quit? I accept your apology Edward and I'm on my way over

    'Old Van Halen, when I was in it-classic Van Halen-makes you wanna drink, dance and screw, right? And the new Van Halen encourages you to drink milk, drive a Nissan and have a relationship.' - David Lee Roth.

    Haha! Even if this was new news, there's no Van Halen for Wolfy to quit! What have they done? He's probably having more exposure in his own band than anything VH related anytime soon. Pretty sure those "ten albums worth of material " Ed's been chirping about all these unproductive years are the ten released already. Pretty sure VH is just a memory now.
    She looks so $#@!'n good ,so sexy and so frail....Somethin's got the bite on me, I'm goin' straight to Hell.

    I think Van Halen quit life.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Not news. It's been around.
    However I'd caution taking what Jeff Berlin said to the bank. On his web site, he brags about a number of things, including all the women he supposedly slept with. Kinda immature for a guy in his late 50s.
    He might have jammed with them, and at the end of the jam, after a bottle of vodka Eddie asked him to join the band. Who knows.

    There is a question here that is more of an elephant in the room- What is Wolfie doing these days?
