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


.
Van Halen Can Return To Platinum Glory With Stryper Singer's Help? was a top story on Tuesday. Here is our week in review recap: (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.
