    I'm a huge fan of those pieces of artwork that have many past references in them. The Somewhere In Time album by Iron Maiden is a perfect example of that. I'd love to see Van Halen do this, but without the Iron Maiden references.

    Any photograph of the four of them together would be the best! Black and white would be cool.

    I was just thinking about starting a topic like this. Anyway, I think having the 1984 baby grown up would be kind of cool since that was their last album together. I'm sure they could think of something creative involving that idea.

    I really think a grown up "1984" baby would be cool. There's all sorts of visual possibilities.

    How 'bout Gary Cherone getting a cannonball in the stomach ala VH3, and a toothy-grinned Dave with a match to the cannon's fuse? Actually, I suspect the next cover won't be that rock n' roll. It'll be something that makes you scratch your head and go "the hell?" like the egg on the guitar inside the Balance booklet, or the empty studio from the best of. it just seems that as far as VH packaging goes, VH is headed away from traditonal rock cliches, and more towards the feel of arty French films.

    They should do a parody of the Beatles Abbey Road cover, and instead of having normal markings on the crosswalk, have it striped like Ed's guitar. Also have a new VW beetle (also striped) in the place where the old bug is on the original cover.

    I like really love 1984 Baby/olive branch concept. Although, I think Ed & Al would nix that idea cuz they probably wouldn't wanna make any reference to the obvious "bullshit" that's went on the past 16 years. Plus, that 1984 baby has come to represent David Lee roth. Again, I don't think the other members would want a cover that thrust dave above and beyond the other band members.

    Another concept might be to have the 1984 baby, Ed and Al (see inside last page of "The Inside" issue 13) and Mike as kids playin' by the swing (see Balance cover). In the background we can have the 1984 hammer guy, waitin' to whack! the first kid to step outta line. For good measure and humor, we can have baby sized Sammy and gary way outside a barb wired fence lookin' in.

    Is this the place to wax on what new cover tunes Van Rothin' should consider playing on the next world extravaganza?

    I'd love to hear a Van Rothinized version of "It's Your Thing" by the Isley Brothers. I think it would be so gawd DAMN funky!

    I thought the grown up baby sounded cool, but this one is AWESOME!! Maybe back-mask a track to say "Dave is alive" too.
