Van Halen - Van Halen III mp3 flac download
Van Halen III is the eleventh studio album by American rock band Van Halen, released on March 17, 1998 by Warner Bros. Produced by Mike Post and Eddie Van Halen, it is the band's only studio album to feature Extreme lead vocalist Gary Cherone, and the last to feature bassist Michael Anthony before he was replaced in the band by Eddie's son Wolfgang in 2006. Work on a follow-up album with Cherone commenced in 1999, but never advanced past a few demos.
The "III" in the title of Van Halen III refers to the unveiling of the third incarnation of Van Halen, the post-Sammy Hagar lineup featuring former Extreme vocalist Gary Cherone as lead singer. According to the party line, Van Halen ditched Sammy because they wanted to try new musical and lyrical approaches that Hagar was reluctant to pursue. And it is true that Van Halen III makes a slight break from his dunderheaded party rock, but that's a difference that only hardcore fans will be able to hear.
But when a band takes that chance-the chance to stretch and grow-, many fans don't handle it too well (to put it mildly). I however do, Van Halen 3 just doesn't appeal to me. Cherone's vocals don't do anything for me, they don't have the energy of David Lee Roth. That is exactly what makes VH so good, it's FUN to listen to.
Could Van Halen III, and Cherone’s time in Van Halen, have been saved? Gallucci: The album should have been billed as an Eddie Van Halen solo album with Cherone as the featured singer. Expectations would have been lowered, and it wouldn't have been perceived as such a disaster. Releasing it as another Van Halen album with yet another singer was just asking for trouble. Wilkening: They needed somebody with a stop sign or a police whistle. In a 2011 interview, Hagar said that Eddie Van Halen wrote great guitar parts, but not songs. What are the three best songs on this album? Gallucci: Trim a couple minutes from "Without You" and you've something sorta close to what the classic lineup may have done. Fire in the Hole" sounds like something from the Sammy Hagar era, but like so many tracks on the album, it goes on way too long.
