    Default If Van Halen Have One Last Album In Them, Do You Want It With Sammy Or Dave?

    Since it appears that Eddie and Alex are not even talking to Dave anymore per reports - if Van Halen have one album left in them, would you prefer another one with DLR or would you like to hear Sammy and Ed together one last time?

    I gotta go with Sammy. I admit that I am more of a Van Hagar fan, but even beyond that - I think Van Halen would make a better album with Sammy over Dave at this point if they were able to get past their personal problems and work together again with Michael Anthony as well obviously.

    Plus I have been really disappointed with Sammy's solo material for the last few years - I just think he can't really get inspired unless he is working with Ed again. They should have never rushed those songs on the Best Of Both Worlds compilation - it's really too bad that they didn't take their time and do a proper album first - hopefully without Up For Breakfast.

    Ultimately we have gotten new stuff from the DLR version of Van Halen, so it would be great to cap it off with a Sammy album now.

    What would you want?

    Jeff has said that Dave has met with them "countless times" in the past year and talks to them several times a week.

    Truly, ADKOT is a great album to (dare I write) end a storied career on, but a final release with Sammy would be my choice.

    ...and a glazed donut for me too, please!
    Give me ambiguity or give me something else!

    There have been reports that have stated otherwise and even DLR seemed to indicate this in some interviews this year, but if that isn't the case - why haven't they been writing and recording a new album in all this time?

    +1 for Sammy. I'd love to see the tour that would follow. Sammy still sounds good and Ed's playing his ass off. Even better if they could get Mikey to hop on the train for that.

    Here is what I would want as a farewell,
    Mike back
    Sam and Ed write the album
    The original Van Halen lineup records the album
    And in order to portray all of Van Halens music live, they tour with Gary Cherone.

    Here's why, the writing and quality of music with Sammy is the greatest it ever was with this band
    But Dave is Van Halen and that's who they have to record with.
    Sammy is a great singer but can't do the Dave sings justice. Dave is a lousy singer that can only sing Dave songs.
    Gary does justice to both in a live setting.
    Listen to the Van Halen 98 Australia show
    He does well with classics like unchained and mean street
    And also does well on Right Now and Why Can't this Love

    Then an ultimate Box set and head for the sunset
