    Default What Kind Of Damage Would Mitch Malloy Have Done To Van Halen?

    Considering how awful Mitch Malloy is for a band like Van Halen and the fact that Eddie was in love with this guy's vocals - I really think that if this had actually gone through with the making of a new album and tour, the possibility is there that Van Halen wouldn't really recover from it.

    Of course people are still going to go see a reunion with Dave or Sammy, but with Cherone and now Mitch Malloy, I think the public view of Van Halen would be an all time low and I think even a reunion would take a bit of a hit with some people deciding that they are just done with the band.

    Mitch Malloy may be the greatest guy in the world, but I think he would have inadvertently "killed" Van Halen due to fan backlash and they would have to reunite with someone immediately. It would be a similar hate to Metallica and Lou Reed's Lulu.

    Do you agree that Van Halen would have taken a HUGE hit here or do you think the music would have been good enough to please fans enough even though Malloy is all kinds of wrong for Van Halen. Or maybe you like Malloy and were optimistic.

    It wouldn't have been good. Whereas Gary took a lot of heat for not being Dave or Sam, his voice AT LEAST had some variance and character. Mitch Malloy can sing in tune but sounds generic as hell. This would have been similar to the guy who sings in Journey now, Arnel Pineda. A complete ripoff. I'd have loved to hear the album as it would have been something fresh and new, and just maybe in 1996 they could have pulled it off. But, I doubt it. His finished version of TWILY is not great.
    WHOAOH! Hey you! Who said that? Baby how you been?

    This is so 1996 and a fucking dead horse.

    Use the search option as this subject has been there and done that and we all got Mitch T-shirts.

    Hope this one gets a lock down too.

    We're working up a pool on what the next alias will be. Early odds favor McDoogle and Tyrone Barkley.

    It wouldn't of been good from a fan perspective, but I think his voice fits VH better than Gary's did.
    He sounds like Sam sometimes, too.

    Honestly. I don't VH III would've sold any worse with Mitch singing. Probably better.

    People haven't ranked their favorite Van Halen albums in order - since 10 minutes ago, so they were getting restless because ranking isn't done enough here.

    You need not worry. There is ZERO chance even one person on this website is on his ignore list.

    He's far too narcissist to pass up any chance of a mention of his less than esteemed self by anyone.

    Probably wouldn't have sold any worse, yes.

    Might've been better live.

    A third singer no matter who it was, was never gonna work out.

    It was just asking too much of the fanbase.

    Yes - I did something that I have never done - put someone on my ignore list. HH posts are just too inane and life is too short to even have to scroll past his posts - even if it has nothing to do with me.

    yeah his voice is too generic like bigdaddy said, basically simple as that.

    DLR and Sammy are polar opposites in some ways but both have larger than life characters which they manage to project into the music 100% of the time.

    despite obviously having a good voice, MM is too beige. Cherone wasn't right either, but at least had some kind of bite to his vocals
