    You guys are thinking of Ed Leffler, their manager before the hell that became Ray Danniels.

    Far as I know, Landee is still alive and well, still engineering but I think he and Eddie had a falling out of sorts...

    I'm pretty sure Donn helped Ed with the porn soundtrack, so I don't think they could have had that much of a falling out.

    I don't think Ed & Donn have worked together since F.U.C.K. but I may be wrong. I think the porn thing, Ed did all by himself.

    I believe the last album Landee was involved with was OU812. I remember that Ed complained that he couldn't hear Mike's bass in the final mix, so they parted ways. Kind of ironic isn't it??

    There's a link here:http://www.discogs.com/artist/Donn+Landee
    I have not dug into this page, so no little about it, but it was posted on another forum asking the same question.

    For a time though before the economic collapse, I believe he was doing some software/consultation work. I seem to remember that.
    There have been rumors that he's done engineering here and there for other artists, but not VH, but is retired, or at least semi retired from that.
    On the falling out with VH...I do know there was some friction after OU812. The idea was bounced around to get a fresh perspective so Andy among many others were suggested to replace Donn. I don't think it was a pure falling out, but their sound on OU812 was a real letdown and it seemed they were in a rut production wise. I'm sure there were hurt feelings as he was instrumental in the conception and outfitting of 5150, but shit happens.

    I believe OU812 was the last for Donn Landee. Andy Johns (Led Zeppelin and Rolling Stones) produced on F.U.C.K. Then they parted ways with Andy saying he was too drunk all the time...LOL Eddie and Sammy... Look who's calling the kettle black.

    Donn was the engineer on the six pack, correct?

    Maybe that better suited his talents, as I think both 5150 and especially OU812 from a production point are shit. Some of that is due to the time period, but a lot of it isn't.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!
