    Given their history, it's not a stretch to assume ego clashes. The probabilities favor such an assumption, as well as the notion of Ed falling off the wagon.

    Maybe it's nothing. Maybe it's everything. Who knows

    Yes. Now I see that it might just be nothing. In one way I think folks might want them to fail. Sad huh. Not me but I wanna see them do another cd of new songs before I will belive it is a "band".

    I dont get it. You can see a bunch of old farts stumble through Van Halen riffs at any random guitar store on a Saturday.

    There is literally no rig more rock-n-roll than that.

    I read that last night. That's great news. I knew everyone would be jumping the gun and just waiting for them to fail.

    Isn't this the expected results when hooking up with Roth again?

    Not saying it's his fault or Eddie's but either way, what did they expect?

    It still begs the question, especially since none of these guys are new to the spotlight nor the paparazzi: Why didn't they prepare a press release?

    Maybe Dave will go solo again. Just show up randomly onstage at a Vai concert, scoop up Steve & Billy, and off to work on a new record.

    Thanks for posting that Jolly. Many will call it BS and then start saying "Van Halens gonna have a monster truck rally"

    I wonder how long it's been since they've performed that live. Did they play that last on the tour?
