    Everyone,

    Everyone on this board who is either a. in a band, or b. been in a band, knows that there are few things on earth more fun and therapeutic than turning on an electric guitar and wailing with your friends.

    My question is this...

    Don't they miss the simple pleasure of the jam? Christ, Mr. Van Halen has a sweet studio. How can they not be getting together and playing? It would kill me to not at least get a rehearsal in once or twice a week. (And for those about to say, they are practicing, writing etc. it's not the same without a singer, whoever that may be.)

    So, that leads to question two. Are they jamming? And if so, is Mikey singing?
    You know the best tone I ever had was with that little bandmaster cranked to 10. Edward Van Halen, 1980, Guitar Player Magazine.

    This here is a good point. I know I get withdrawls from not jamming at times, but I don't have a kid, an addiction, or cancer, so it's hard to tell how Eddie handles it.

    He could be for all we know jamming with Lukather, Holdsworth, or any assortment of studio junkies who love to noodle around. But speculation is best left to the professionals at CNN.

    well Ed said they have 3 albums worth of material, so I would think they've been jammin.

    Jamming is a special kind of thing that only musicians understand. There's something about locking into a groove with other people that can sometimes be magic

    Well Ed (or Val?) did say that Ed jams for hours a day nearly every day, with Mike and Al, and they have at least 3 albums worth of material (probably more). You don't need a singer to jam, especially when you are EVH.

    Yeah. Maybe that's the whole problem. They're having TOO much fun without a vocalist and pissing up a rope in the studio without taking care of business. I, personally don't think that is the case, but it's something to ponder.

    I'm going to send this over to the Speculation Forum for continued discussion. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    But before I do, I was checking out Judas Priest's website recently and they have (separate) video of KK Downing and Glenn Tipton doing a studio walkthrough which appears to have been done for some online magazine. The cool part is, there's another piece of video of Tipton jamming by himself, just in a room of the studio. Watching this, I couldn't help but wonder, why doesn't Eddie have a camera set up, film himself jamming (even for just 5 minutes), and throw that on the official site?

    It would be an amazing thing to see, it would take VH literally no time and cost almost nothing, and it really wouldn't fuel singer speculations one way or the other. A simple way to do some jamming, which I assume Eddie does anyway, and give a quick nod to the fans.

    That, Glenn, would take a considerate artist who appreciates his fans.

    The only time you'll see Eddie Van Halen make a move is when it involves making money or boosting his Pacific Ocean-sized ego. I didn't post this trying to start any shit, this is a fact and most of us know it by now.
