David Lee Roth.
I really don't know anything else about it except an old friend is now teching for Eddie. He told me on Friday that he was heading down to LA in the new year to start rehearsals for a new tour. I guess it could all fall apart before then. Given the volatile nature of EVH and DLR this could already be history.
So there you go all you EVH fans. Let the sharks assemble and the cynics start to muse on how lame/great this will be.

cheers
Pete

Wolfie on bass?

I didn't ask and he didn't say. I was mostly asking about Eddie's setups/gear/etc. Not that I really care as I've never really been a VH fan. Not because Eddie is not a great rock guitarist :rockon2: but because of their inane songs. And very pedestrian rhythm section. (IMHO)
I would still go see them to see the trainwreck however.

If youre gonna go, go to the first show, because it could very well be the last one as well............

I would hope that no-one goes expecting to see the "high-energy" Van Halen from the early 80's.

But DO expect to pay huge bucks for tickets.

Speaking of trainwrecks, did everyone see DLR doing a bluegrass version of "Jump" on the Tonight Show? :confused-smiley-010

It WAS on YouTube.
May still be.

I was watching a bootleg tape the other night of the show in Toronto that I went to several years ago. Eddie was rocking that night.

Wolfgang has been confirmed as the replacement bass player for Michael Anthony who is the touring bass player for Sammy Hagar now.

I hope Wolfie doesn't hang out with dad too much - be a shame to wreck yourself at 15.


As for DLR - the bluegrass tribute album to VanHalen is absolutely brilliant. DLR only sings 2 songs on it, and Jamie's Cryin' sounds like it should have originally been a bluegrass tune - way better than the original version IMO.

If its the one I'm thinking, it was the "Balance" tour at Molson Amphetheater.
It was by far, the best I had ever seen Eddie play! He may have peaked that night?

It was the Van Halen III tour that I seen. Had nver seen EVH before, but I was blown away that night. I could have done without Gary Cherone though.

Well......Eddie was always good.....but from my avatar you might say I'm biased!

That was a great concert as well, but Gary Cherone....:zzz:

YouTube has some great videos of the concert I was thinking of, that are worth checking out!

Gary was good for Extreme but definitly was not a match for Van Hagar..
