    Default Gary Cherone comments on the controversy

    http://www.spreaker.com/user/talking...s-gary-cherone

    Some quotes (from melodicrock.com):

    On the second (yet unreleased) Gary Cherone - Van Halen album: "Patrick Leonard (Madonna's songwriter) came up to 5150 and we wrote a couple of songs with him, but most of the demos were just me and Eddie. The two songs were did with him (Patrick Leonard) were actually really good. There was some real good stuff."

    "The whole Sammy/Michael thing... I love Mike. He's an underrated bass player in a band with two virtuosos. Even Alex gets overshadowed by Eddie."

    On Michael Anthony needing to be shown how to play by Eddie Van Halen: "There was never a video camera and Michael played on VH III. Michael was a rock on the VH 3 tour."

    Speaking of Extreme's bassist Pat Badger: "We call Pat Badger the poor man's Michael Anthony."

    I'm taking bets on how many posts before someone dismisses this, saying we don't know the context of Gary's comments.

    I wonder if Gary regrets being in Van Halen just based purely on the fact that every time shit gets slung, he's going to be asked about it. Luckily, he's a nice guy.

    If you take what people say--everyone other than Eddie--Mike is a good player who was also a team player. In other words, there are things he can do that he just didn't do in order to leave room for Eddie and Alex to do their things.

    And if Eddie was telling Mike what to play, how can he be mad about what he was playing? Eddie's story just falls apart no matter how you look at it.

    Honestly, why not bring in outside songwriters? (Didn't Glen Ballard cowrite Me Wise Magic and CGTSNM, as well as the elusive Between Us Two?) It did wonders for Aerosmith. I'm not saying people love Nine Lives as much as they do Toys in the Attic, but it prolonged their careers and doubled or tripled the amount of hits songs they had. And did

    Gotta remember I was just starting high school when Get a Grip was huge. I mean, Aerosmith, like Van Halen and U2, survived grunge. Aerosmith was GIANT when I was in high school. Van Halen was popular too.

    But Aerosmith, while not as large, extended it with Nine Lives. Van Halen did not with III.

    Outside writers, on a limited basis, could be ok, but it's really not in the VH tradition. I'm not sure how well the Glenn Ballard stuff from the 90s stands up, 20 years later. Dave Matthews Band, Alanis... I donno.

    I like a lot of songs on DMB's Everyday album. I think they hold up and was a good change of direction at the time for him. His stuff sounded all the same at that point. Alanis stuff is pretty generic in hindsight. Aerosmith stuff from Nine Lives I actually like, but I would admit it doesn't hold up as well, though that's true of a lot of Get a Grip too.

    Ballard also worked on the BOBW new songs, and I only like one of those, really.

    That said, I think a song like "Cryin'" holds up very well and it used an outside writer. So I think it just depends.

    and once again, Ed's crappy story gets blown apart.....how much more evidence do we need to know he either constantly lies, or has no real perception of what really happened because he was so wasted all the time.

    This is misleading by being called unreleased. Gary clearly states that the production on the two Leonard tracks was really good, but there was also no other finished product, just rough demos and ideas.

    Ed brought in Desmond Child for the first attempted Roth reunion back in 1996. I'm betting the contributions from outside writers is mostly lyrical.
