    Default Michael Sweet guarantees he could make best VH album since WACF

    I think we'll be able to all unite on this one...

    http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/mic...hildren-first/

    Michael Sweet says that he would love to help VAN HALEN make another classic album in the vein of the band's earliest efforts. "Chances are in this lifetime it'll never happen, but if it ever did, and we co-produced [the LP] together, and I was able, as a fan, a singer, a guitar player, a writer, to pull that out of them, I guarantee you it would be the best VAN HALEN album since ['Van Halen'], 'II' and ['Women And Children First']," the STRYPER frontman told "10 Questions With The Musical Mind" in a new interview (hear audio below). "I can say that without even any hesitation at all, because, in a perfect world again, if they agreed to it, and we all worked together and went for that, I guarantee you it would happen and the world would be going, 'What the eff just happened?'"

    According to Sweet, the ideal VAN HALEN album should remain true to the band's classic sound without attempting to incorporate any of the newer sonical influences which could dilute the group's original songwriting magic.

    "We don't wanna hear VAN HALEN doing a modern song with no guitar solos," Michael said. "You wanna hear VAN HALEN like you heard it on 'Van Halen' and 'II' and 'Women And Children First'. That's the VAN HALEN we all know and love, and that was the fire — a burning, ignited, raging fire."

    Hey, I like his enthusiasm! And it's nice to hear someone outside of VH Links is interested in some new Van Halen tunes! And if they actually did do it, think of the fun we'd all have complaining about it!

    I remember him saying the same thing a few years ago.

    Ed is not giving up that wah pedal...so, good luck.

    Ed could do this himself if he wanted too. He wouldn't need your help, Mike.

    Eh, I'll take an internet beatdown for Michael Sweet. I had the honor of meeting him twice. Once way back in HS, and then a few years ago (26 years between and he remembered our exact conversation). Huge VH fan.



    I always liked Stryper growing up, so feel free to tell me how they suck, are gay, dumb, etc... I've heard it forever Plus we can all sing like him, play guitar like him and have sold millions of records, etc.

    Not a Stryper fan, BUT MICHAEL SWEET GET'S IT.

    He's a huge CVH head, and i respect his impeccable taste, especially when he
    drops reference to WACF.

    Not sure why he's getting trashed for being enthusiastic & a lover of that original BROWN.

    Not without someone pushing him he couldn't. That goes for all of them actually.

    Sure he could. He could say "I'm going back to the old sound" all by himself. But, he left that behind decades ago, so, unlikely he would ever want to go back.
    On his own or with anyone's help.

    I think he handled 'On Fire' quite well.

    "I don't think he owes us, and I think few if any do. What we would like is for him to release music, since he is our favorite musician. It's a wish and a hope, not a critique." - Dave's Dreidel

    Because some people just aren't happy unless they are trashing anything and everything that has to do with VH. A new VH album produced by him would be better than having no new album at all.
