    It's Been Just Over Two Weeks Now...

    ...since Van Halen went into the studio.

    I wonder how many songs are completed?
    I wonder if Eddie is letting Wolfie play all the bass?
    I wonder if Dave has run outta material yet?
    I wonder if they're still getting along?
    I wonder if John Shanks is pulling his hair out?
    "Keep honking buddy. I'm reloading..." -The Mard

    "......HEY!.............alright............." -BIG FOOT

    " I know what you're thinking: "Do I want to watch Mard? We know that horses were very strong and could actually stop airplanes from flying away. The ones made out of stone called "statues" -- occasionally came to life and rode off is a colonial cliche. How many more times do we need to hear about how the oppressive Raj's wore villainous black capes, crafted cunning plastic masks to impersonate people, and drained all the blood from their slaves so they could keep the fluid in bottles in their dungeons? I mean, YAWN!

    But if you're willing to sit through this dry sort of historical drama one more time -- or even just this dry historical review -- you will not be disappointed. In fact, some of you might just learn something they didn't teach you in school!-

    My guess:
    No songs completed
    Wolfie is not in the same zip code as the recording studio. Eddie is recording the bass for the album. Wolfie is probably playing call of duty or something.
    Dave will never run out of material.....patience.... another story.
    Getting along?....probably not but who knows.
    My guess on Shanks; he will be completetly bald and have the "1000 yard stare" by the time it's over.

    Back in the day, these guys would have already cranked out an entire album, no?

    But that's not the way the cookie crumbles today. Patience is a virtue, and Van Halen is Van Halen.

    I don't want this to be taken the wrong way, but its been awhile since VH cranked out albums in record pace like they did in the Classic VH era...

    Even if it was 1986, the band would have accomplished pretty much nothing in two weeks outside of finishing a few eight balls and cases of beer. They haven't worked at a fast pace since 1983 or something.

    They possibly have dialed in Eddie's tone so it doesn't sound like a chainsaw running on ethanol. Maybe adjusted Al's headband and gave Wolfgang another Lloyd Christmas haircut.

    Seriously if they are working, they are probably laying down rough ideas and getting a decent sound.

    I'm wondering how many threads like this will pop up every 2-3 weeks.


    Seriously. When the album is done, it will be released (at least that's how it's supposed to happen). I'd really be shocked if they had one song done in two weeks and for those who actually believe they will release an album this year, think about this: The only way that happens is if they have pretty much every song mapped out and structured and their just jumping in the studio to record them. If they need to jam, come up with riffs and ideas, write new songs, structure them and record them, I think it's safe to say, short of a miracle, we won't be seeing this album until next year.

    AC/DC started working on Black Ice in 2005, I believe. Many songs were done by 2006 as Brian Johnson stated in fall 2005 that the album would probably be out by 2006. The album didn't get released until Fall 2008. Just saying. Let's be patient here. This is the equivalent of a kid in the back-seat saying, "Are we there yet are we there yet?".


    My prediction of what is happening after two weeks: Shanks is discovering his first grey hair and Ed is chasing a tone.

    My comment was in reference to VH1 and Diver Down, I guess. The way they recorded their debut has always impressed me.

    I hope no one thinks I expect that out of them now. That is definitely not the case!
