    Kujo, it's pretty obvious what went down:

    1) Warner Bros. were not going to let the VH franchise die a slow death without forcing their hand on VH to bring back David Lee Roth in order to gross huge number$ on a reunion tour.

    2) Gary saw the writing on the wall and realized he was out of his league. Best of luck to him though

    Over and out..

    IMO, Gary realized that no matter how well he or the band thought he did, there was just too much to live up to. I may offend some for sayin' this but replacin' Dave and Sammy to a lesser degree, is almost like a new guitarist tryin' to replace Edward Van Halen.

    Gary got the boot after a very embarrassing interview on Fox News last fall. I believe it was on the O'Reilly Factor regarding abortion and his open letter to Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam(I believe this is right, but I'm not sure).

    Cherone was incoherent. I think you can say he was either under the influence or he ate too many lead paint chips as a kid.

    He was gone less than a month later.

    Interesting thought about that interview.

    It would pain me to think Ed would let him quit or let WB boot him for the lack of record sales. If he believed in the work they were doing the way he talked about.

    Oh well, life goes on......

    peace,

    Kujo,

    Again, even though I didn't state it clearly, this is just my opinion.

    Gary didn't have time to mature with the band. DLR and VH played the club circuit for years before hitting the jackpot. Sammy had supported himself as a solo artist and side projects such as HSAS. Gary was a neophyte compared to Dave and Sammy. With a little more maturity, who knows what he could accomplish.

    Didn't want to sound like I was bashing Cherone, other than not being able to put together a complete sentence on national TV.

    P.S. Liked your guitar pictures!

    Van waiting,

    No problem dude. I didn't think you were bashing. Just stating the obvious.

    Thanks for the pics comment. I am trying to broker a deal for a Red one (EBMM) now too.

    Hope we can work it out too.....
