Van Halen Can Return To Platinum Glory With Stryper Singer's Help?

(Classic Rock) Stryper frontman Michael Sweet says he'd love to hit the studio with Van Halen to help them emulate past successes. Sweet feels 2012's A Different Kind Of Truth - their first with David Lee Roth on vocals since 1984 - was a let down. He thinks they have it in them to produce material of a similar quality to their first two albums - and he wants to be the one to help.

Sweet tells The Metal Voice: "I'm a huge Van Halen fan - about as big as they come. You know when you feel a band is just going through the motions and just not giving it their best? That's what I felt with that album.

"It got some really good reviews and I'm sitting reading them thinking, 'I'm hearing something completely different.' I just didn't get it." He continues: "I'd love to get a hold of those guys and take them in the studio and take them back to the old school days and help them make an album that's comparable with Van Halen I and Van Halen II. They'd probably have a platinum-selling album if they did that." Read more and watch the full interview here.
