Well, I see he's worked with Bon Jovi so VH won't be unfamiliar territory sound-wise. 


:o

Bon Jovi are filth.  Wash you're mouth out, sonny jim!

Great 1979 live footage... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QrfWzx8Tn4o&feature=player_embedded
Why on earth aren't there official DVDs of this line up of the band from back in the day?

HOORAH!   8)  Hooks, choruses, riffs, dive bombs and fancy tapping on its way.  Is it too much to hope for some synths?  ;)  ;D

You can feck off with yer mincing synths - look at the damage they did to Rush.  ;D

Gonna be interesting to see what they come up with. Dave in his 50s can't really do the parties and girls lyrics any more - or can he?
As for producer we'll have to wait and see I guess. Pity Bruce Fairburn's not still around as balance sounded fantastic - or even Glen Ballard as he did a great job on the two then new Dave tracks which appeared on the first 'best of' compilation.
Jeez - that last material they did together was 1996? How time flies....

I think even by the time he did Skyscraper he'd pretty much put that behind him, though his lyrics today might still have that self-aggrandizement of old.

Totally concur.  Clean and polished, just as radio rock albums should be.  :)

And I stand by my comments on synths.  And Bon Jovi.  :P  ;D

Looks up aggrandizement.... yup. Yeah - his lyrics have matured with him.

Indeed. 1984 attitude with Balance style producing would do me.

VH and Chickenfoot in the studio at the same time. I wonder who's album will surface first?

Was interested to read of the genesis of that record cover - an amazing piece of art.

If they're recording it now?  Fall.
