Stryper’s Michael Sweet wants to help Van Halen write the best album. He said:
“Chances are in this lifetime it’ll never happen, but if it ever did, and we co-produced [the LP] together, and I was able, as a fan, a singer, a guitar player, a writer, to pull that out of them, I guarantee you it would be the best VAN HALEN album since [‘Van Halen’], ‘II’ and [‘Women And Children First’],”.
He further added:
“I can say that without even any hesitation at all, because, in a perfect world again, if they agreed to it, and we all worked together and went for that, I guarantee you it would happen and the world would be going, ‘What the eff just happened?'”
According to Sweet, the VAN HALEN album should remain true to the band’s classic sound. He added:
“We don’t wanna hear VAN HALEN doing a modern song with no guitar solos. You wanna hear VAN HALEN like you heard it on ‘Van Halen’ and ‘II’ and ‘Women And Children First’. That’s the VAN HALEN we all know and love, and that was the fire — a burning, ignited, raging fire.”
