    Default VHLinks House Band?

    Iíve been trying to figure out a way to do something fun with the site, and I know we have a lot of musicians here. I know most of us play guitar so finding guitar players is not going to be a problem, but the other instruments may be. But I noticed some sites have member bands that play covers and they put those covers on YouTube. AC/DC has a fan site that does it and they get a ton of views and itís cool.

    Iím putting this here rather than the guitar room because I want everyone to see it not just people who play guitar. Just a couple caveats if weíre going to do this. I only want to do this the right way. So you have to be able to have access to good recording equipment in your house or wherever in order to do this. You canít just throw a microphone in a room and try to put this together, it has to be a quality recording. I know right off thatís going to eliminate a lot of peopleís ability to do this which is why I am just putting some feelers out for it. Secondly, you have to be willing to show yourself on video and record yourself. Now you donít have to show your face, but you at least have to show your body playing the instrument. Below is a link to one of the AC/DC videos that the fans put together to let you know what Iím looking to do.

    I havenít seen really any VH fan sites do this unless they were already a band or something, and I think it would be cool for all of us to collaborate together.

    So just post your thoughts. I realize this is probably going to take a long time to get together to find people who can and want to do this and then coordinate it. But I would like to just get an idea if itís even worth it, and if there is any sincere interest to do it. I have no problem coordinating it, I just want to see if itís going to be worth the trouble. I canít believe AC/DC fans can get something like this together for a site but we canít.

    I also donít care if anybody looks like anyone in Van Halen or sounds like them. Iím more interested in playing the songs well with a good quality recording. Thatís all that matters to me. Van Halen is a very difficult band to replicate and I donít expect that we can replicate it exactly. But I know we have enough good musicians here that can pull off a solid recording.

    Again I know itís a big undertaking but I would really like to try to put it together. I will probably put this on our Facebook page but I wanted to start here with people who post on the forum first.

    Also if you know anyone you think might want to do this check with them and see if theyíre interested. I would rather it be people that just post here, but if weíre struggling to find musicians Iím willing to look outside for anyone else who might be willing to take part.

    Edit: One more thing you have to have a thick skin because you know how people are assholes on YouTube. You have to be willing to accept that because Iím going to leave comments on for the videos. Thereís trolls everywhere. So just make sure you are cool with that as well. You know thereís going to be some haters.

    Haha wow. Uh yeah that wonít be happening. But Iíve seen far worse. A couple of the singers were decent and a couple of the guitar players were good too. I mean you canít really expect them to emulate guys like Halford and Dio, never mind the shredders on the original.

    I am definitely interested. I can play guitar and probably keyboard, and record direct audio (and also video). I play VH fairly often with a drummer friend of mine, and he has the means to record as well.

    There are two big anniversaries in the next couple of months, Fair Warning's 40th and FUCK's 20th. If the links could rerecord the entirety of one of those, that would be very cool!

    I'm currently quarantining with COVID for at least the next 7 days, so I have a lot of free time between now and then.

    I'd also offer to re-amp for anyone who can record a DI guitar but doesn't have the means to amplify it.


    I believe I've mentioned this idea to DRod too, I can't speak for him but I'm sure he'd be interested if he has time too!

    Dude love the idea of taking on FW and FUCK. That gives us something to shoot for.

    Send me a PM on the stuff that you are comfortable playing on any instrument on those two albums and letís see if we can flesh this out a little bit.

    It's going to be a little more difficult than playing AC/DC

    Thatís my point. Playing Van Halen isnít playing AC/DC. Thatís why I know itís going to take a little bit more work to find people. Iím not worried about the guitar players, we have plenty of good players that can pull off a lot of the songs. I mean Iíll play guitar on all of them if it comes down to not being able to find guitar players willing to do it, but Iím not worried about that. We already have a volunteer besides me anyway. I am more concerned with the other instruments.

    Cool idea, Brett! We've been watching all these "quarantine" vids for a year. Can't believe no one thought of it sooner. LOL.
