    I hate to be the bearer of bad news folks, but I have just gotten word from my WB insider that Dave sadly won't be part of the next Van Halen record.
    "Van Halen is currently wrapping up the final few songs for their next album with various singers."
    Only 2 names were given to me and they were Marq Torien and Bret Michaels.
    Its a sad day for me and now my Christmas will be blue. Sorry [img]graemlins/cry.gif[/img] [img]graemlins/cry.gif[/img] [img]graemlins/yell.gif[/img] [img]graemlins/santa.gif[/img]

    Brett Michaels? Didn't he do some kinda porn movie with Pam Anderson?

    Also, I don't think we should take this too seriously; everyone seems to have their sources inside Warner Brothers(David Lee Roth News Desk posted a huge Pro-Dave Insider thing a while back), and there's been mixed hearings of "Dave's back" and "new guys are in". We've heard too much about Insiders recently, I just wish Van Halen would, to put it like Hannibal, "Break the Silence".

    If true (which I seriously doubt with alot of confidence), Who would sing all these songs live?

    I think Ed is that stupid...but I don't think he's stupid enough to use Roth-clones. And a multiple singer album would be completely impossible to keep quiet.

    I remember Ed mentioning in an old interview that he seriously considered the possibility of having a album with multiple singers after Dave's first departure form the band. His brother talked him out of the idea simply because of the logistics of it all in terms of touring and the fact that fans identify themselves with a band and the 4 or 5 personalities involved. A band should be recognized not only sonically but vocally and that's why it made sense to go the one singer-enter Sammy Hagar.

    "MARQ TORIEN"?!?!?!? [img]graemlins/scared.gif[/img] [img]graemlins/yell.gif[/img]

    He used to, or still does, sing for the L.A.-based band, "BULLETBOYS". Their VH connection was having Ted Templeman produce all of their albums. Marq used to have an awesome voice, and in fact, he was often referred to as the "Hispanic David Lee Roth" (his real last name is "Maytorena"), due to his stage mannerisms and general attitude.

    But, I bought a "new" CD by the Bulletboys not too long ago, a "Greatest Hits" compilation where they re-recorded their popular songs ("Smooth Up!", "Hard As A Rock", "Hang On St. Christopher", etc.), and his voice is completely and totally shot. No thanks due to all his alcohol and cocaine abuse.

    I hope whoever did the engineering and final mastering, should this be true, had a degree in magic because any track(s) with him singing will definitely need it.

    Yeah, I remember that guy. He had the long hair and sang "Smooth Opinion", at least that's some of the wrong lyrics I've heard to that one before.

    I don't believe this is true. If it was, surely there would be leaks. I believe the only thing going on in the world of Van Halen, is Wolfie is hanging his stocking with care, in hopes that St. Nicolas, soon will be there.

    Warners would have no interest in this if it were true. It's a well-known industry joke that Warner Bros. refused to back Van Halen unless they kicked out Cherone and got in an original singer. I don't think this would be a solution they are happy with. You can't promote an album with various singers, and you certainly can't tour behind it. And c'mon, Bret Michaels? Gimme a fucking break. This is the lamest rumor so far. You haven't ruined my Christmas. I'd rather have no band than an all-"star" Van Halen album.

    Bring back Dave and get it over with. Ed's acting like someone who's avoiding going to the dentist even though he knows he's going to have to in the end.
