  1. Will a 16 year old work better than the Daniels-drinking Chili Pepper King?

    While I'm not a big Van Halen fan, I always thought Michael Anthony's backing vocals were a big part of the Van Halen sound.

    VH has been coming back for years, I'll believe it when I see them on stage.

    Michael Anthony backing vocals will be sorely missed if they tour with out him.
  4. Van Halflin what's a who's it?

    Good luck to the Van Halen brothers, I'm not going. Eddie will probably throw a hissy fit on stage and fire someone.

    It saddens me so, to see such heroic icons of rock n roll faded to such foolishness and disrespect.

    Think about it... Motorhead is still chugging along. Ozzy could manage to regroup Black Sabbath. Even the Eagles.. THE FRIGGIN EAGLES... can tour again after all their drama!

    Hell will truly freeze over when Alex and Eddie bury their egos and realise what the world is really like out there. HATING them so much for being such babies.

    Better? Somehow I doubt it. Good enough? Eh, maybe... I hope so.
    One thing: Eddie can't fire Alex, he can't fire Wolfie... who does that leave?

    Lookout, Dave! :p

    Also, this will not happen. I bet the tour will be cancelled just like the last one.

    I did see Roth last spring and he and his band were great. I love Eddie but the guitar player had Ed's licks nailed perfectly and then some. Also, it was a small venue and we had 4th row and the intimacy and Dave's humor were great. It was 90% Van Halen tunes and with about 10% David's solo stuff.

    If they do a low-profile club tour, will it be billed "Van Hauling"?
    Or if they do the golf club circuit it could be "Hal-en-Van"

  9. Man, I made the mistake of posting this thread a couple of months ago, and even then it had already been posted.

    It is still as ridiculous as it was then.

    I wonder if they've been misquoted. Maybe all they said was "We're combing our backs"? I mean, the whole setup is rather hairy, wouldn't you say?

    I just read that Valerie Bertinelli is coming along on the tour to keep an eye on Wolfie!!

    All I can say to that is :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: !!!

    Groupie: "Wolfie, you rock! You really turned me on!"
    Wolfie: "Have you met my mom?"

    Poor kid! :rollno:

    Is Eddie out of Rehab? Roth will probably get fired before the first concert.

    I don't think I'd care to see them without Michael. He is a big part of who they were. Who's going to do those trademark background vocals? I also think that his playing style fit the band perfectly.
