    50% Van Halen??

    You must be a graduate of the George W Bush Jr math program.

    Van Halen was 45% Dave, 45% Eddie, 7% Mikey and 3% Alex.

    Welcome back, Van HALEN!!!!

    ...It's the BAND and Dave is really the cat that can front VH. He sang his ASS off and was really cool. No cheese here guys, this is filet Mignon! - Steve Lukather's comment after witnessing a Van HALEN 2007 rehearsal

    Don't give me none of yo jibberjabber, fool! Alex is the main spirit of Van Halen. They named the band after him. [img]graemlins/devil.gif[/img]

    Get real. The sound, the songs, the chemistry, the show was all Dave & Eddie. Mikey's harmonies were the icing on the cake, which is why he gets more points than Alex.

    hey I'm a musician and I hear with my Eyes...and although Mike and Alex did contribute to the band....the reality is, if Ed and Dave had a different drummer and Bass PLayer they still would have been successful...

    now if Al and Mike had a different Lead Singer and Lead Guitar player, I seriously doubt it would be the same...and this is not a slam against them, because they are great at what they do....but VH was mostly Dave and Eddie...and Al and Mike filled in the gaps...

    My viewpoint would be much different if we had a years and years of interviews stating that Mike and Alex were serious writers in the band(example: Ed, "Oh yeah Mike actually wrote Ain't talking Bout' Love, he had these kool lyrics, and showed me this riff, and I just went with it")(example 2: Dave, "well All came up to me after a night of experimenting with four ladies from the local strip joint, two midgets, a mule, and 30 lbs of whip cream, then he showed me these lyrics he penned for tune called, "Take Your Whiskey Home", Al even plays a little guitar as you know ,ad nshowed this bad ass riff to Ed, and well what can I say but it was magic!!!!"), but that is not the case....the writers and creators of the SONGS were Ed and Dave...the main man behind the image and PR of VH was Dave...Al and Mike are important to the band, but the main guys were Ed and Dave...

    I know it says "written by Van Halen" on all the albums, but the reality is that Ed wrote almost all of the music and Dave wrote almost all of the lyrics. Mikey's harmonies and Alex's drumming put them over the top.

    BTW, Hagar and Cherone constituted a big fat 0% percent of Van HALEN.
