    Default Ultimate Van Halen : A fans Dream

    ..I remember hearing somebody say " to say you like Van Halen is like saying you like Pro Football "...I was thinking how could they make the fan base double ..heres my Idea

    1. Mike Anthony should be back in the saddle..his dismiss from the band is bigger then both of the singers Drama..( no dis-respect towards Wolfgang..I love the kid )

    2. A new record with both Roth and Hagar singing the same songs !!!..one side roth one side hagar..but musically note for note the same songs ...a roth version and hagar version.
    ..In 1984 Van Halen Jumped Panama
    Topped Jimmy & Dropped Dead Legs
    ..Ill Wait in this House of Pain with the
    Girl Gone Bad while I am really Hot for Teacher..


    ..Think it was easy ?..you stare at an album
    Cover that long..

    Roth and Hagar on Van Halen at the same time:
    dream another dream, this dream is over...

    But seriously, if they do that I'd buy 50 copies of this album to give everybody I meet that doesn't know Van Halen yet.

    I would like to see something like a Van Halen style Temple of the Dog. Both Sam and Dave singing the songs together. As a bonus track - Sam, Dave, and Gary singing How Many Say I

    That's a great fantasy and would probably be the coolest thing of all time. It would settle some of the debate on how DLR and Sammy impacted the music that Eddie made - example would be if Hagar was really the driving force behind VH getting more wussy.

    I'd take #2 a step further and have the same song done differently musically for each singer. Play to their strengths.

    Hopefully that new record will be Steve Miller Band - Greatest Hits

    A lot of artists have special editions. So it would be cool to see this original idea, plus an online special edition with two extra cds - one with the "different musical style/same song" idea, and my personal preference - "same song, different lyrics" idea.

    For the die hards, you could pick up the same special album in a four LP set.

    And after a few months, host a poll. Lets see what songs the fan's would want the lyrics rewritten to. I'd like to see DLR's take on "Spanked", and SH make a fair whack at Atomic Punk.

    It would NEVER happen. EVER. In the history of ANYTHING.

    I think this is a bad idea even if the band was functioning adequately.

    What the fuck is everyone smoking in this forum lately?

    A cover album of Steve Miller's Greatest Hits, a double album with Sam and DLR singing the same song?

    Dear God almighty I hope VH releases something soon.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Didn't Ed say that he began writing songs in a different key when Sammy joined the band?

    So the band would have to record different versions of the same songs for each singer.

    What about a double album of Sam and DLR singing the same Steve Miller songs?
