If the music is good, does it matter who is singing? Nope...

While I agree that VH3 was piss poor, if the music and songs were good, I don't care if it was one of the Backstreet Boys singing it.

And just because they HAD chemistry doesn't mean they can recapture it. Those two crapola songs with Dave on Greatest Hits proved that.

I still think they could make a go with someone like Eric Martin or Jeff Soto.

Can you remember anything they have recorded since Lou came back?

That's sad because Bad Co never turned into a hair bad wanna be. They were AOR to the core with Brian Howe. Obviously you never listened to them.

Sorta like, if you keep telling yourself Dave is coming back you eventually believe it?

The majority of melodic rock music could be called "blah" (and has by many non-fans). I'm curious...do you actually listen to anything else other than those 6 VH w/DLR albums?
