    Dunno. I have no idea how involved Ed was in Wolfgang's album, in terms of if Ed was co-producing it or guesting on some tracks or how far along the album is regarding being mixed.

    No, even though it was sort of half-expected, it didn't make it any easier. About the only consolation one can take is that someone who was suffering isn't anymore.

    I would have thought Wolf would want to get it done and released before his Dad passed. Then again, Ed heard it so it's not like he didn't hear what Wolfgang did. Also, he'll probably get a lot of the "It's not Van Halen" comments and crap, so maybe it is better that it wasn't released yet.

    Ed's passing won't be good for Van Hagar's legacy.

    As more young people decide to go through the VH catalog, they will see how inferior that era was to the original.

    I was listening to that yesterday. Did they actually play the original LET'S GET ROCKIN'? Not OUTTA SPACE? Wow.

    ME WISE MAGIC shows just how much anger and rage Eddie was dealing with in 1996...to kick out both of his lead singers and make a big ass of himself that year...you can hear all that in ME WISE MAGIC.

    I hate to admit this, but I will anyway...JOSEPHINA, to me, is really the one thing I like from VHIII. I just like the chords. I don't really understand what the fucking idiot singing is going on about. But I like the music in it. It would, of course, have been a much better song if Dave had sung a slow blues over it.

    That song has sounded better and better to me every year the past 24 years...

    Cherone is good rock vocalist. But he didn't have that larger than life personality everyone seemed to be looking for.

    Speaking if which can't you fucking mods finally take down that retarded "Time since last VH Studio release" and replace it with a remembrance banner of Eddie? It's sort of redundant to keep it going at this point.


    Oh right, slave SESH is that retarded also.

    Depending on what's collecting dust in the closet at 5150 studios, we might get a posthumous release of some material. It's a long shot, but possible.

    If anyone is wondering why they’re having such a hard time dealing with the death of EVH, like I am, I thought this was a pretty good explanation.

    No, it's due to the constant laziness that is slave SESH You see, slave SESH lives in the past and believes even with Eddie's death there is going to be a new Van Halen record and tour. slave SESH has no bearing to objective reality anymore. A remembrance of Eddie would be nice for all the fans grieving but you see, slave SESH is no fan. He is an oppressive, censoring, hypocrite pseudo-left individual who hates humanity

    Irving Azoff confirmed today that they are already talking about looking in the 5150 vaults for possible material for a posthumous release. I thought it was kind of tasteless of that money-grubber to be already talking about posthumous releases with Ed still alive 72 hours ago...but yeah, if he's anything like Dhani Harrison, that's one way Wolfgang might deal with his grief. Of course, that just might be maddeningly difficult.

    Even worse...Sammy suggesting Vic Johnson, Bassplayer, and Alex back him up...

    I bet Alex is done. The catalog will constantly sell, just cash those checks.

    Wolfgang will be the keeper of the stripes.

    Taken from: https://www.pollstar.com/article/irv...ng-soul-146599

    (2nd to last paragraph):
    As for the possibility of unreleased recordings and future unheard music from the late musician, Azoff says it’s much too early to speculate. “Wolf and Alex will go up to 5150, the studio in Ed’s house, but there’s been a lot of recording over the years,” Azoff says. “I can’t predict that for sure there will be anything new, but for sure they’re going to look at it.”

    I haven't checked into this old hotel in years and years...
    The passing of the GRATEST Guitarist ever sent a clarion call that couldn't be ignored.
    Having read both Noel Monk's & Ted Templeman's book this summer have given me a peace of mind regarding The Mighty Van Halen.
    I hope that Ed reached out to all the important people in his life...and career...and made amends or at least buried the hatchet.
    Watching that youtube of Mike & Spam made me realize 2 things:
    1.) Damn...Mike looks old & frail
    2.) Spam is just a dunce. A money grubbing dunderhead. I'm sure he had a true concern for Ed...be he always gets in his own way.
    Regardless...now & until the end...."DAVID LEE ROTH IS VAN HALEN." I wish it wasn't so...but its the sad reality.
    Jay & I both came to the same awful realization after Ed's passing....we now live in a "Post Edward Van Halen World." I hate that fact. I hate that Ed is now a "deceased legend"...like Hendrix & Rhoads...and so many more.
    Farewell Edward Lodewijk Van Halen. Rest easy...you've more than earned it.

    That first album is so lush and full of interesting sounds...but that's Trevor Horn and ZTT. I play it all the time.

    Fun fact: the only show...ONLY...show EVER I wanted to see and wasn't able to get tickets for was Phil Collins No Jacket Required tour. We got to the Ticketmaster window just as they sold out. So we bought FGTH tickets instead. Weeks later we decided we didn't want to go. Flipped them for a profit.

    Yeah! But the song/artist ID wasn't there, I think it still said Van Halen Tribute or something. Today on the way home I heard Loss Of Control, and the song ID wasn't on that one, either. So they must not EVER play it.

    I had the top down (I bought a Gladiator Rubicon ) and heard Let's Get Rockin'. Had to turn it up, I thought it was Outta Space too. But then Bassplayer's vocals hit and I knew what it was.

    Amazing! How was the quality? Did it sound like it came from the bootleg we all have or did it sound like they were actually given a master tape?

    Hell, I remember driving with my buddies with the top down (yes, I also had the top down listening to LET'S GET ROCKIN' in my buddy's Mustang) almost 20 years ago, blaring that on the highway. When it finished, my friend said, "That was awesome." He'd never heard it. I said simply: "Yup. They should get back together and put it on a real album." I remember thinking that for years. There's just something top down about that song.

    One thing that helped me when my Mom died was that I had to renovate the family house in order to get it in shape to sell. It took me 18 months, and I was glad to have something to keep my mind occupied.

    Wolfy will have a lot to deal with, and keeping busy is good therapy at a time like this. Better than massive alcohol and drugs.

    Mike did lose a grandchild...and guess who donated to the charitable organization Mike was raising money for? Yup...our man DIAMOND DAVID LEE ROTH ponied up 10K! I remember Mike saying how touched he was & he even contacted Dave to thank him.

    As more young people decide to go through the VH catalog, they will see how inferior that era was to the original.
    The terrestrial classic rock radio stations down here commenting on Ed's passing would invariably play several tunes of CVH material as a rock block tribute. Which is pretty much reflective of what they had been doing prior, anyway: very heavy on the CVH, with very little Van Hagar being played.

    Ed's legend was pretty much cemented by the time 1984 rolled around, anyway. Van Hagar had several hits, but far as guitar work goes, Ed had already done all he ever needed to before Hagar joined the band in terms of establishing himself as one of the all time greats of rock guitar.

    Dunno if it's necessarily money grubbing that would be the motivation, or the sole or primary motivation. It may be. I don't know any of the people involved. They could all be a greedy bunch.

    Could be that the Van Halens had already been looking at whatever archived, previously unreleased material was kicking around 5150 before Eddie passed, in terms of a hypothetical vault release.

    As a fan, honestly I can't say I'd care much one way or the other what motivations were behind that type of project, long as it was released. Sort of along the lines of my not really caring if, say, Ed and Dave were getting along or not: I just wanted to see and hear them play, and the state of their friendship - or lack thereof - mattered not to me.

    Van Halen Album & Song Sales Spike by More Than 6,000% After Eddie Van Halen's Death
    By Keith Caulfield
    After the death of Eddie Van Halen on Oct. 6, the band Van Halen, which he co-founded, saw its catalog of albums and songs post a 6,198% sales increase in the U.S. that same day.

    According to initial sales reports to Nielsen Music/MRC Data, Van Halen’s collected albums and songs sold 40,000 copies on Oct. 6 -- up 6,198% compared to just under 1,000 sold on Oct. 5.

    Looking just at the band’s album sales, the act’s catalog sold 9,000 copies on Oct. 6 (up by 5,835% compared to a negligible sum on Oct. 5). The act’s top-selling album on Oct. 6 was its self-titled 1978 debut, with 2,000 sold.

    Forever No. 1: Van Halen's 'Jump'
    In terms of songs, the group sold 31,000 tracks on Oct. 6 -- up 6,317% compared to less than 1,000 sold on Oct. 5.

    Van Halen’s top 10 biggest-selling songs on Oct. 6 were: “Jump” (3,000), “Panama” (2,000), “Eruption” (2,000), “Runnin’ With the Devil” (2,000), “You Really Got Me” (2,000), “Dance the Night Away” (1,000), “Why Can’t This Be Love” (1,000), “Hot for Teacher” (1,000), “Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love” (1,000) and “Jamie’s Cryin’” (1,000). (Figures are rounded to the nearest thousand.)

    “Jump” was Van Halen’s only No. 1 hit, among 16 top 40 hits, on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, spending five weeks atop the list in 1984.

    News on any further sales gains, as well as significant streaming increases, will be reported in the coming days. It’s expected that Van Halen may impact a number of Billboard’s charts (dated Oct. 17) next week.

    I dunno.

    Look at what the Prince Estate has done. Some of the releases are very, very good, and some are just meh. The Versace Experience comes to mind. Sounds like a fucking cassette. The Sign O' the Times set, though...fucking brilliant.

    Does Wolfgang or whoever decide to just roll out new colors for the guitars every year?

    Speaking of which...I have a Slime Green Wolfgang on the way...figured I'd pull the trigger before I can't find one.
