Default Re: Van Halen Runion This Fall with David Lee Roth

FYI... here are some comments about their final rehearsal, which was recently posted on Van Halen's fansite:

David Lee Roth is 53 and Eddie and Alex Van Halen are 52 and 54, respectively. There was nothing 50ish about these guys. They looked and sounded just like they did in 1984, albeit missing their rocker hair. Laser show, wardrobe changes, giant remote controlled blimps with Van Halen logos cruising overhead, drum and guitar solos, NO recorded voice tracks -- this was **** I haven't seen in a long time. I didn't realize how much I missed it. It was one of the best shows I have ever seen, and I'm not even a Van Halen fan.

One note is that this truly isn't a reunion tour since the former bassist, Michael Anthony, was replaced with Eddie and Valerie Bertinelli's 16-year-old son, Wolfgang. Wolfie was nervous as hell, but he held his own on bass. His voice really stood out (not in a good way) - they would be wise in turning down his vocals. But you know, the kid is 16 years old with acne! His voice probably hasn't even finished changing.

Thumbs up Inside scoop on Van Halen tour

A friend of mine forwarded me an email from a MAJOR studio guitar player who has been to the VH rehersals and said they are OFF THE CHARTS good. Wolfie can sing the high parts and is good on bass and that DLR is signing like the old days.

It might be time to buy a concert ticket...

More Halen Than Halen?

So the surname is attached to 75% of the band now, what genius!

Michael Anthony got screwed; bad faith, end of story.

It seems bad faith has always been a part of Van Halen.
