    Way back when the band brought in Cherone, I remember Eddie saying in an interview that Gary was the last singer that he would work with. He said something to the effect that if it didn't work out then he would stick with movie/tv scores. Outside of the fact that he has since contradicted himself, I was just wondering if anyone remembers this?

    dear friends,
    what follows, it's a serious consideration about the vh status.


    eddie, talked very candidly about gary in the past,about he was his soulmate, and that, without him, the band could not go so deep musically.

    they didn't want to be too ecleptic...

    garylived with him, for more than a year, and all the songs came out naturally...

    without you was recorded the first day gary went in 5150.the first day.

    so, guys, eddie said these words. right.

    but that period, is over. and was over, with the last live performance.

    since then, eddie understood perfectly, that gary, never fitted with van halen. i do not want
    to offend. i respect everyone on the band, past and present.

    but gary, was just a singer, the third incarnation of van halen.

    and that's not true, that was the last singer.

    in fact, as i sad some days ago, eddie asked sammy to come back, and he declined, because he was still working with waboritas, and planned to tour.


    now, eddie, would like to play again with sammy, because, with him, had found the right balance.

    with sammy, a world tour could be possible.

    and sammy studio performances, can be shown live, without losing his voice, or whatever.

    everyone, knows that dave, on his last tour, lost a lot of words during the vh songs, and vocally, wasn't at his top, like 82 or 83.

    sammy instead, has exacly the same powerful voice.


    to me, sam or dave, could be the right singer for a new van halen period.

    but, eddie, has yet decided.

    and the tubes, at 5150 are burning again...

    the tubes have always burned along these years.


    i repeat, that over than 50 tracks are ready to be filled with good vocals.

    and some are already finished.

    remember, the 5150 tubes, are burning.


    and very soon, we'll know the truth.

    for sure, at 90 % dave will not be the singer.


    sammy is in at 95%

    so, go figure [img]tongue.gif[/img]

    I don't know if he said this , but christ don't take anything as gospel that any Rock star says, when it comes down to there fame and finances they conveinently change there minds and become one big happy family IE the Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Van Halen's 2nd and third attempt with Roth. Eddie also said that Sammy was his perfect singer and that Roth would never be back. Eddie always speaks in the moment.

    It's just another example of Eddie making broad statements without thinking about the later implications of them.

    Never say things like never or always, since usually they end up being proven wrong or broken.

    Dude, the day Eddie asks Sammy to come back is the exact same day the "Waboritas" find themselves being booted out of their hotel, with all their shit piled up where the tour bus used to be, asking one another: "Where the fuck is Sammy?!!"

    Dave would blow off his cover band even quicker.

    how many people in the world have stood in front of God and everybody and vowed "until death do us part."

    only to run off with the office ho when the bills stack up, the old lady puts on some pounds and the kids need more than just the car keys.

    fact is people talk SHIT all the time. they may think they believe it when they say it, but it's SHIT all the same.

    whenever i hear the words "soul mate" i wanna friggin' BARF. gary was eddie's SOUL MATE just until the album sales hit sucked. then it was CYA, DOUCHE BAG.

    eddie, like every other damn rock star, is an EGO maniac who wants to ride the glory til his grave.

    both roth and sambo are looking for another shot at the title and it AINT happenin' with their respective SOLOW careers.
