    So to you musicians and songwriters, when Sam says he didn't know were the one was initially, and that he found out it was on the up, and not the down, what does he mean? Does this perhaps tie in with the thread a couple years back about singing on top of the notes, vs in between the notes?

    In his recent interview with the singer from Tool, he mentions the odd time signatures that he writes to. I know in the past he has mentioned Tool as a band he admires as far as song writing style. That he wished he could write like that.
    Utilize. Improvise. Adapt. Overcome.

    I think one of the more interesting points of the interview, that people don't talk about, is the fact that the VH brothers are blocking the use of "Van Hagar" songs for use in movies and commercials. That's probably millions of dollars that "Van Halen" (incl Sam and Mike) are not making. It's bound to upset Sam and Mike, that's easiest kind of money, you don't need to do any work for it. Nobody holds a grudge like the VH bros!

    And yet people still say that Ed's all about cash grabs...
    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney

    With albums titled OU812 and FUCK, I am not sure if that isn't revisionist history on his part. Just saying.

    I read about it back in 88, a guitar world interview with Ed (even though I didn't play guitar I wanted to read Ed's interview)

    Isn’t it?

    Does Ed do anything that isn’t purely a cash grab?

    Oh I bet you think they were bringing Mike back for us fans.

    Not for the increased revenue.

    And I'm sure Mike, if he comes back, will be working that tour for free.
