    why doesn't van halen come out with their own record label? since they are not sign to any major record label company. it would save them money & put what they want to play on the record label. just call it 5150. alos they can sign new up and comming bands that we will be hearing in the future .

    You have to have a work ethic to run a label.

    I think one should have product to distribute before one forms a record label. Just my thoughts.

    Check with Sammy! He's probably selling somethin' like that! Between his Tequila endorsements, Cabo Wabo bar endorsements, non-violence drivvel, I'm sure he'll get his hands in their somewhere!

    Anyone seen Sammy at the end of the Molson Amphithatre concert in Toronto (pay-per-view concert) where he wouldn't stop talking about fucken gun control, no violence....etc. Embarrassing for the entire band in my humble opinion. Just my 2 cents though.

    Your idea is one that I've thought of since the day they split with Warner Bros. Why don't they? Maybe their legal problems are stopping them or maybe they just don't want to deal with the business side of it. Who knows?

    that's a great idea, and one they could make work. if anything, it would appeal to ed's control freak attitude that's surfaced since he's sobered up. but i can think of three reasons it might not fly:

    1) ed just wants to stay home and play.
    2) do-it yourself is more the punk attitude. that's not how the band came up.
    3) the brothers might consider it a loss of face that some giant label doesn't come throwing money at them, paying for the producers and so on.

    but i'll keep my fingers crossed!

    Keep in mind that the Legendary Led Zeppelin created their own label after they did "IV" (granted they only made one more awesome album with the new label). So its not unheard of. Unfortunately, you have to remember that EVH did most of the producing and engineering on VH3 himself which would probably be the case on the next album should they make their own label. Hence, it might not be such a great idea. Jimmy Page produced all the albums for Led Zeppelin, but unlike EVH, he was really really good at it.

    Let's see...

    Reunite with Sammy. Adopt his Cabo Wabo Records. Negotiate distribution rights with a major label. Sign other acts to CWR. Make crapload of money.

    Sounds like a plan to me!

    While it wouldn't bother me, I just want new music - a label of the kind you suggest would almost certainly mean VH never regain "the big time" again. I'm afraid you need the big bucks of the "majors" to promote and distribute the product in in order to stand any chance. I'd love to be proven wrong though, anyone got any examples of an "indie" label selling shedloads?
