    Default Why won't Dave release the John 5 album?

    What is the delay?

    Because the 25,000 units that DLR might move by releasing a concept album at this point in his career will take attention away from all the product that VH is trying to move.

    Duh.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    I know you're joking, but I do wonder if it's a contractual term of Dave's current tenure in VH.

    I am sure it is. When you are in VH, that's it, no side projects, unless your last name is Van Halen...then it's ok.

    We are all eagerly awaiting Kody to allow Dave to release it

    You don't need a contract term tonkniw what pissed off people you have know since teenage years.

    Plus it's not as complete in terms of a finished product as John states. That said it will get out while we are still alive. When in Pasadena Dave records a lot. Henson is for finishing but his basement studio is where he essentially thinks out loud with friends. Both vh and Dave control leaks so well because 5150 and his studio are at home so it is a closed loop. Dave is every bit the control freak ed is artistically , which is why making music together is such a challenge. One of the reasons adkot process was so managed was Dave showed up with 2 9in 3 ring binders filled with ideas he wanted to review with the band each one. Oh hells no that would not work with ed. Dave overload. I think shank has discussed it in interviews.

    Anyway, having a record recorded is different than a finished product.

    What side project is anyone in Van Halen doing? Wolf's album is no closer to my turntable than Dave's John 5 album.

    That might also be why we don't have a Wolfgang album yet. Man, Eddie really is protective over the band
