Sorry Steve the Clone doesn't impress me. They're as much of a joke as Judas Priest hiring a sound-alike.

No, the embarrassment was that piece of @!#$ that was erroneously labeled "Van Halen" in 1998. A new album by the ACTUAL Van HALEN wouldn't embarrass the legend, because they ARE the legend.

BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH. Once again, the sheep fail to realize that it requires chemistry to make the music. Van HALEN had chemistry. Van Hagar had a different chemistry, but one that worked none the less. Van Danniels had no chemistry and that's the main reason the album was a joke.

But Sammy has no interest in coming back. And even if he did, they haven't played Van Hagar on the radio in years. You can't make a comeback with cheese ballads in 2001. A 4th singer is impossible, especially after the colossal failure of VD III. It is quite literally Dave or the Grave for them now.

Can anybody remember anything Foreigner recorded with their second singer? I don't think I ever even heard it, or for that matter, remember the guy's name. As for the generic hair band incarnation of Bad Company, if I heard one of their songs on the radio tomorrow, I wouldn'tbe able to tellit apart from Slaughter, Firehouse, or a half a dozen other whiny transvestite bands. I never thought Lou Gramm's voice was all that great, especially live, but Paul Rodgers, even in his 50's still has one of the best singing voices in rock n roll history. I can't understand how trading that voice in on some generic dipshit who sounds like all the other generic dipshits could possibly amount to "the cure to the blahs".

Or is this some reverse psychology cure where you blah yourself to the point of numbness till you can't feel blah anymore?
