    If anyone's as bored as me waiting for some new music from the master, I thought you might enjoy this thread and a chance to play Six Degrees of VH.

    The object is simple, connect a member of the extended VH family to any other notable figure including yourself in six steps or less. I'll start things off by connecting David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar in a roundabout sort of way:

    1) David Lee Roth was formerly in a band with Edward VanHalen.

    2) EVH is/was? married to Valerie Bertinelli

    3) Valerie Bertinelli co-starred with Mackenzie Phillips on the TV Sitcom, "One Day at a Time."

    4) According to Mackenzie Phillip's unauthorized biography, she once slept with Mick Jagger.

    5) Mick Jagger presented Sammy Hagar and the rest of VanHalen with an MTV best video award for their song "Right Now."

    Here's one connecting two guys cut from the same cloth, Ray Daniels and Osama Bin Laden.

    1) Ray Daniels once managed Van Halen.

    2) Producer Ted Templeman worked with VanHalen on numerous albums

    3) Ted Templeman also produced the Doobie Bros.

    4)The Doobie Brothers performed along with Bruce Springsteen in 1979 for the famous "No Nukes" concerts.

    5) Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band recently released "The Rising," an album largely inspired by the tragic events of 911

    6) The attack on 911 was carried out by Al Quaida, a global terrorist organization financed and led by religious zealot and part-time sociopath, Osama Bin Laden.

    (1) Michael Anthony used to play bass for a band called Van Halen.

    (2) I used to work with Michael Anthony's cousin.

    BTW, this cousin doesn't know WTF is going on with Van Halen either. God knows I've tried to find out.

    I'll give this a shot.

    1.) Eddie Van Halen once (twice) had a lead singer in his band named David Lee Roth.

    2.) In the '80s, Dave was seen with Madonna at one of the music award's shows.

    3.) Madonna was once married to Sean Penn.

    4.) Sean Penn played a character called 'Jeff Spicoli' in 'Fast Times at Ridgemont High'.

    5.) Jeff Spicoli had Van Halen play at his birthday party.

    I know some of this is fiction but hey, it was worth a try.

    Yes, I guess we'll have to tackle this one sooner or later Here's my stab at it.

    1) Eddie was/is married to Valerie Bertinelli

    2) Val starred on the TV sitcom "One Day at a Time" at one point dating fellow actor Scott Colomby who appeared on the show.

    3) Scott Colomby had a minor role in the movie Caddyshack.

    4) Caddyshack was written by Canadian comedic actor Harold Ramis who also co-wrote the movie "Animal House."

    5) Animal House featured Kevin Bacon in his first movie role as the tightass, 'Chip Diller.'

    Six steps huh... okay:

    1. VH I featured the song Jamie's Cryin'

    2. Jamie's Cryin was sampled for Tone Loc's hit "Wild Thing"

    3. Tone Loc portrayed a police officer in the movie "Ace Ventura"

    4. In a hilarious scene in the film, Jim Carrey appeared to talk from his asshole.

    5. Ray Danniels is an asshole.

    6. Ray Danniels collected a larger percentage in royalties from VH I than Michael Anthony.
