View Full Version : DLR/Sammy Press Conference...

Well the thing wasn't on here but a reporter did report in to the radio station.

Basically the guys said they will be touring, how long could change. They will play in LA on June 24th at the Universal Amphiteater (considering neither ever plays in LA). They will not play together, but they will do a lot of VH material. They may even cross over and do each other's tunes.

They ragged on Ed and Al, called them the Howdy Doody Brothers. I'd say any reunion is history at this point.

Seemed to be getting along, joking and whatever. That's all of it in a nutshell.

I got this from The Velvet Rope on the web, from an obvious non-fan observer...


Well, just got back from the press conference announcing the Sam & Dave tour (which, by the way, has been deemed "Song For Song, The Heavyweight Champs Of Rock'n'Roll" tour...say that one three times fast!), held at the Sky Bar on the Sunset Strip. Dave and Sammy arrived together (30 minutes late, natch), along with the identical triplet(?)
"KittyKat Girls" and a midget who looked like nothing so much as Andy Warhol on a REALLY bad hair day. Total camp....

The best line from the press conference was courtesy of Dave, of course. When asked if
Gary Cherone had been in contact, he replied, "He's doing The Vagina Monologues!"
They say they'll be flippin' a coin to decide who headlines the first night (May 29 in
Cleveland), then flip-flopping slots thereafter. Oddly enough, the tour doesn't seem to be
hitting the East Coast...the dates they distributed end June 29 in George, WA--the
furthest East the tour goes is Ohio. Kinda odd....

Among those in attendance were Irving Azoff, John Kalodner and Peter Paterno, along
with film crews from CNN, VH1 and Access Hollywood, among others. I'm sure it will be plastered all over the small-screen tonight.

well, if they are raggin' on Eddie, I think it's safe to say he isn't sick.

Ok- The reception was horrible, but this is what I could make out...Correct me if I'm wrong.

DLR will not be reuntiting with VH

DLR and Sam reffered to the Ed and Al as the HOWDY DOODY brothers

There is only ONE show, in CA, at The Universal Ampitheather June 22. Tix on sale April 27th

They will NOT appear on stage together but will both be playing VH songs

Michael Anthony remains neutral and may appear as a special guest

They have not heard from ED but do not give a rats ass how he feels about their decision

They decided to do this because IT's TIME!!!

so would'nt make sence for eddie,alex. and mike to be part of this sence sammy and dave are going to do alot of vh songs?

or are they apart of this and no one is talking? it just may be wishful thinking on my part.

face it folks, Van Halen is either too sick and broken down or they're too busy chasing down sticker decals and playing wiffle ball or driving the kids to soccer practice to rock any more.

Be nice for Ed and Al to make some sort of public statement about things. It would also be nice to know the exact wording of what DLR said about not getting together with VH. And it would be really nice if Dave looked in the mirror, realized he's no longer on the 'a', 'b' or 'c' list anymore, and shut his fuckin' trap about other singers.

04.16.02, 01:03 PM
Ive remained quiet here for years but Ive got to post now. Eddie and Alex Van Halen are foolish to be uninvolved in this. If they love making music and playing as they consistently say, they would realize that the only chance they have to be well received is to be a part this. Because lets face it no one wants to hear anyone else front the band except Sam and or Dave. I guess the Van Halen Brothers were FOS about claims of making music for life. But hey as we grow older priorities change. I guess this shows they really cant stand either of the singers and would prefer not to play and do what they supposedly love.

van halen has officially bitten the dust folks, say goodbye.

after this tour, van halen will be but a memory. i'll get my tickets for the universal ampitheater show, get my rocks off and then say fuck it.

nice goin ed and al, way to fuck everything up...AGAIN.

think it's definitely time to add on to my vh tattoo and make it look like somethin else that has some FUCKING MEANING

The "Vagina Monologues" comment is funny, of course, but totally unwarranted. Same thing with his "baloney pony" comment last year. Gary has been NOTHING but totally respectful of both prior incarnations of the band.

But, realistically, I guess we shouldn't expect anything else from Dave. As Sammy said in his recent radio interview, Dave "isn't normal" and he's "a goofball." ;)

Ray Luzier's 20 questions is up at Metal Sludge (http://www.metal-sludge.com/20QuestionsRay.htm)

Not too much info, but says he has dates on his site, which I couldn't get into.

Looks like it may officially be over. If Dave's slammin the bros in public again, I don't think there will be any reunion at all. Guess the Universal Amphitheater date will be their last chance, but I won't be holding my breath.

It is a shame, but what were you people expecting? Ed to walk out from behind the curtain and give Dave and Sam a group hug? :rolleyes:

Van Halen will release a new album. But not with Sam or Dave at the helm.
VH isn't over. Ed and Al's pride is on the line, and they'll come back, guaranteed.
This thing is guaranteed to make them react.

The Dave or Sam reunion won't happen. But even with a new singer, it'll still be VH. The quality of this future release remains to be seen...

I agree with Little Dreamer. Van Halen will be back in some form but it should be obvious to everyone by now that it won't be with Roth or Sam.
I wish all parties involved would quit insulting each other. All this crap thrown back and forth is really dumb. You would think that a bunch of grown ups could show each other a tiny bit of respect.

Now their singer and bassist "leave". The band has been giving their fans the silent treatment for the last 4 years. They fire their manager, tour manager, and guitar tech and you expect things to be better than last time?

That's besides the point. I really wish Ed and Al would bury the hatchet with those fuckin guys man, but I and we, sure as shit ain't going to influence them. If we did, they would already be pressing albums at the fucking plant.

While Eddie has done alot of shit to make me think twice about what in the hell he's doin, I still can't rule out that he still might be sick.

Therefore, I guess all of us hardcore fans can hope that Eddie will release some of those relic tapes sitting at 5150. Wishful thinking, but if not that, release some solo shit.

From what Sam and Dave used to say about each other, in the open, and who knows what behind their backs, that they are buryin the fuckin hatchet. I will not be amazed however, if they get into a rumble at some point in their tour.

Hats off to VAN HALEN with your "NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS"...Thanks for leaving us with your last words so far in the form of Brad Starks...

Both singers said they plan to include a heavy dose of Van Halen in their sets.

"I'm going to do almost exclusively the Van Halen catalog," Roth said. "It's about time that we show up and not just do renditions. I have a hot band that will serve it large."

"He's going to do some of the Van Halen songs I did," Hagar joked.

"Since Dave actually wrote those songs," Roth shot back.

"What you have is quintessential Americana, and you couldn't pick a more appropriate time for that," explained Roth, who described the vibe of the tour as a cross between Jimmy Buffett and Limp Bizkit. "Between the two of us there is probably something between 80 to 100 million albums sold. And whether you've owned it or not, you've heard Sammy or my voice blaring out of a pickup truck in front of you at the drive-thru at the local Burger King for how many summers?"

As for the chances of Eddie and Alex Van Halen joining either singer for a reunion, it doesn't appear likely. Although Hagar and Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony are working together on a side project and both Hagar and Roth said Anthony is welcome to perform with them, they did not sound interested in the Van Halen brothers.

"I'm not sure what the brothers think and I'm not sure I really care," Roth said.

When asked why Gary Cherone, the other former Van Halen singer, is not on the bill, Roth joked that the former Extreme frontman was busy doing "The Vagina Monologues."

Can't wait especially if Mike does come aboard.

I think this was a shrewd business decision by Sammy and David. They see the opportunity and are going for it. Good for them. I hope they come to Atlanta, that will be an incredible show, I'm sure! Imagine the antics!

I can't help but feel disappointed in the rest of Van Halen, though. :( With their silence, it only can be perceived by us (the fans) as indifference. I think they'll do something again eventually, but I wish they'd say something now. If Dave and Sam are crackin' wise about the brothers, it's not good.

One thing's for sure - this trip just took a massive LEFT TURN that no one was expecting! At least we can enjoy the moment if Sam and Dave are!
:D Maybe VH1 will strike back at MTV's "The Osbournes" with a reality show about the Sam and Dave tour... graemlins/sssh.gif

I'm not going to start bashing him for that and throw away all my van halen records.Jesus Christ I thought I was a lurker. 6 posts and regestered in 99? However I totally agree w/ your statement. Eddie has bizarre behavior but I don't care anymore I still have my albums and always will.

Well it's now officially time to get over whatever hope we had for Van Halen to get back together. The only thing left is for Ed and Alex to come forward like MEN for once and tell the fans they're retiring. But they're such assholes, they won't even do that.

Oh well, at least Rush will be playing near me this summer, so I'll go see a band that treats their fans right.

I'm still pissed there aren't any East coast dates... one of those 20 other unannounced dates better be D.C. or Baltimore. Hell I'll even take Philly or Pitt!

Maybe Eddie could grow as a musician even more than with Gary Cherone. I mean "Once," "Josephina," and "How Many Say I" just rocked so much, I can't wait to hear what a 4th singer would have to offer :rolleyes:

And BTW, at this stage, sadly that's what's most likely, other than retirement. Eddie has his own label, so he has complete control and can do whatever he wants. I hope he doesn't expect to sell more than 50,000 copies, for his sake.
