    Default If the REAL Van Halen still existed...

    If the REAL Van Halen still existed... you know, the one that first made is name by outshining and upstaging Black Sabbath back in '78... the one that "parachuted" into a stadium show... the one who rented a Sherman tank in a plan to upstage Aerosmith... we would get the single on September 27th.

    That Van Halen would have delighted in turning the Chickenfoot release into a footnote. Imagine it... New Van Halen With David Lee Roth!!!!! and in other news, Chickenfoot releases III. That Van Halen would have relished in reminding Sammy that, notwithstanding his revisionist history in his book, without his stint in VH, he would be opening for Loverboy at state fairs all over the US and the only drinks he would be mixing would be Mike Reno's Slimfast Shakes.

    But alas, September 27 will come and go without a sound from Van Halen. We will continue to enjoy the band's well-wishes for a healthy 2009 and "get ready" for, well, probably, nothing more than Dave's next Shutterfly photobook of his vacation...

    Oh Brother here we go again

    but ok, if the REAL Van Halen existed today there would be no Chickenfoot because Mike would be in Van Halen.
    '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.

    Without getting into cf vs. vh or samuel vs. david, yes...what would this release be like if Van Halen was the old Van Halen from the 80's? What type of promotion would be going on you guys think?

    Would it still be secret leading up but then explode? Or you think it would be a massive media staging leading up to it? Remember, this is the old VH we'd be talking about.

    Somehow, I doubt that Mike Anthony -- while I love him too -- was the driving force behind any of the great Van Halen promotions of long ago.

    Back in the day, no one made a bigger splash than VH. I know the music biz has changed alot since then, but still...

    I guess it is the apathy that that VH shows its fans that hurts most.

    And we'd hear "average" bass playing? Per your earlier thoughts on Mike.

    That Van Halen couldn't exist today, not only because faking a parachute entrance would be considered stupid and lame by today's internet masses, but because Classic VH was totally dependant on lightning in a bottle. They came along at just the right time, in just the right set of circumstances.....circumstances that simply no longer exist.
