    OK, I was seriously intiqued after the conversation I had with Bucky Baxter this past Sunday. (please read previous post "Info from Munich", if you need to get up to speed) I spoke to Bucky again about 30 minutes ago. He is in Milan following the last European Ryan Adams date and is preparing to fly to Los Angeles tomorrow with the rest of the band.

    I wanted to thank Bucky for the good interview and excellent info he gave me for another topic (not VH related) and also wanted to see if I could squeeze any additional info based on what he said about EVH & Steve Miller on Sunday.

    Bucky told me that he last spoke with Steve Miller just after Christmas and that Miller told him that the recording work with Edward Van Halen had been started in early November (two separate sessions that took place at 5150 followed by an additional 3 sessions that took place at Cherokee Studios in Los Angeles).

    I asked if Bucky knew any other info on the tone or vibe or if Steve Miller mentioned any other people that were around during those sessions.

    "Yeah, he said Rick Rubin was there and that their bass player, Anthony, was also there for part of the time, just hanging out though and not putting anything to tape".

    I don't know if I have uncovered the holy grail here or what, but I think this is true information based on someone I trust would not be 'smoking my pipe', so to speak. Why would this guy have any reason to make this stuff up?

    Like I said in a different post, he is an accomplished musician with a long recording history with some serious names in the business. It all seemed so nonchalant for him also which makes me think he has no ulterior motives.

    But why did he tell me this? I'm just a free lance journalist and semi-attached to the outskirts of the music business through my work. I can only guess it must have been the comfort level and rapport that we had during the interview? I really don't know but I am happy to hear this interesting stuff.

    I am going to continue to pursue this through more contacts as they come through Munich. I am sure I can ask (in a roundabout way) other people in the business soon.

    Just curious dj88, if you think Van Halen is dead, why do you come here so much?
    Most topics are about future speculations and rumors and things related to NOW.
    Not flaming ya, just a little curious.
