Van Halen (Roth) Tour Back On

Wonder how long it'll go before Roth's ego shuts the tour down?

I'll give it 5 performances and I'm being pretty generous with that.

David Lee Roth is more or less the same way he has always been. The Van Halen brothers knew how he was from the moment they met him; if anything, he has calmed down a bit over the years.

Eddie Van Halen, on the other hand, has gone from celebrated prodigy to bitter (albeit still very talented) has-been. If anyone's ego shuts down the tour, it will be Eddie's and not David's.

Yeah what a pair. David has been nuts for years. But the tour was most recently called off due to Eddie's substance abuse problems. He promised to clean up. It sounds like he is keeping his promise. Let's hope they put on a really good tour. We know they can do it.

But wasn't it a feud between Michael Anthony and DLR that really created the band's problems? I understand Anthony is not part of this tour.

Agreed, while I did like Sammy Hagar, Van Halen was never really the same without Roth, Eddie's guitar notwithstanding.

Possibly, although I don't recall having heard that Michael and David had any problems. As is common with bassists in rock bands, Michael always seemed content to play a supporting role to the more extroverted personalities in the group.

I do seem to remember reading that he had left the band permanently some time ago, and if I recall correctly his reason for doing so was that after twenty-some-odd years of touring he had grown tired of the rock & roll lifestyle and wanted to settle down.

Wonder what Valarie thinks of Wolfie, at 15, touring with a band?

Anthony was sacked from the band because he used a name for a sauce he sells and Eddie did not like him using his "idea" (the name)...

Poor Eddie he plays like crap today, I think the tour will be cancelled after 2 or 3 "performances"....

Some bands should never reunite

He's not part of the band at all, anymore. EVH's son, Wolfgang, has taken up bass duties.

I seem to remember us commenting on this in another thread awhile back. I mean, you take a guy who has documented substance abuse problems while out on tour, and then he takes his son with him out on the next tour??? Come on.

As much as I've wanted to see Van Halen in the past, I will not waste my money on this tour. I have no interest in supporting them anymore.
I'm watching Jeopardy. The category is worst Madonna songs. "This one from 1987 is terrible".

I saw them several times in the early 80s while DLR was still with them. They didn't have much of a stage show from a theatrical point of view, but they did sound good...not much different in person than they sounded on their albums.

Off-Topic: At the last concert of theirs I went to, I worked my way all the way down front,close enough to rest my arms on the stage (this was before concert security was as tight as it is today). The girl standing next to me kept asking her boyfriend something and he kept shaking his head "No". About the time I noticed them I heard her say "Can I ask somebody else, then?" to which he replied "I don't care". She turned to me and said "Can I get on your shoulders?". I said "Sure" and she clambered on up. Shortly after this the band started playing She Got Rhythm and DLR kneeled on the stage right in front of me and sang most of the song to the girl sitting on my shoulders.

Up close, DLR looked rough back then...25 years ago.
