    ....hey , dont take me wrong , this is not a shit on dave topic . Somthing happened between these guys - i think this is a slap in the face - or a desperate retreat for coin - on daves part . I think these guys were jamin , and sombody looked at another wrong , or dave needs a certain amount of coin to get back in halen - maybe ED is charging him !!

    I suspect Dave is currently touring because he is bored. I doubt that the small venues and audiences he is playing to will earn him significant coin. Dave probably just wanted to get back out on the road...

    Yeah it's sounds like Dave just got tired of waiting for Van Halen so he decided to go on the road.

    Dave is touring on no new material because he thinks his audiences don't care about any of his solo work.

    Talked to him the other day did you, Stuff? [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    I think it's more a situation where he knows people have heard about this reunion, and are ready to hear some Van Halen.

    As for why there's no new material... well, that seems obvious to me. Why write with DLR Band if you intend to record with VH? That's just wasted material.

    Where in the Rule Book does it say you have to have an album to tour? I don't see it anywhere in the Rule Book--do you know why????

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>Glenn-"Your Honor I would like to submit into evidence a single bootleg concert from each tour Van Halen did with Mr. Roth. I would also like to submit one bootleg concert from each of the first four tours that Mr. Roth did upon leaving Van Halen."

    Jackie Chiles-"Objection your honor, this is an egregious waste of the courts time. The tour in question here is Mr. Roths' current one, these past tours are of no relevance. This line of questioning is unprecedented, unnecessary, unbelievable!"

    Glenn-"Your Honor, Mr. Chiles brought in "The Rules", I did not. His mentioning of them clearly opens them up to scrutiny as noted in the VHLinks Moral Code of Rock and Roll Touring. Mr. Chiles opened the door your honor, I'm merely walking through it."

    Judge-"Over-ruled, you may continue."

    Glenn-"Thank you your Honor. Ladies and Gentlemen of the jury, Mr. Chiles has put forth the notion that no set of 'Rules' exist for the releasing of an album prior to a tour in the rock and roll field. My question is, if there's no rule that states an artist must put out an album to tour, and Mr. Roth is such a rule breaker to begin with that even if there was one he'd probably not have heeded it, why did he release an album prior to each of his six tours with Van Halen? And why did he release an album prior to each of his first 4 tours as a solo artist? In each of these 10 tours I mentioned, an album was released prior to their starting. And new material from these albums was played on the subsequent tours, which the concerts I've booked into evidence will show."

    Jackie Chiles-"Objection, irrelevant. This line of questioning tends to meander, show slander, and shows no previous standard!!"

    Glenn-"Goes to show a pattern your Honor. If there's no rule that states that 'an album needs to be released for a tour', why has Mr. Roth released an album before touring virtually every previous time in the past?"

    This tour that DLR is doing is a win-win situation for him. Possible reasons:

    Reason #1: His fans want to see him live.

    Reason #2: Warming his voice to do a new DLR Band album

    Reason #3: Warming his voice to do a new VAN HALEN album

    Reason #4: Certain venues/tour packages don't want to hear his solo material

    I'm sure there are more reasons. We should stop reading so much into things. Just enjoy the music.

    Open your eyes. He's BROKE!
    CHICAGO WHITE SOX - 2005 WORLD CHAMPIONS

    The Chicago White Sox (1901-present) - The Original SOX - Proof

    The Boston Americans (1901)
    The Boston Somersets (1902)
    The Boston Pilgrims (1903-1906)
    The Boston Red Sox (1907-present) - Proof

    The Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets whatever you want to call them, have NEVER displayed "SOX" anywhere on their caps, jerseys, or merchandise, therefore they shouldn't be referred to as such. However, the White Sox have used "SOX" since 1912.

    The SOX are in Chicago...we just allow the Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets to use the name.

    Who cares why he's out there? Just enjoy the fact that he is even out there! He's doing just what the fans want: performing songs live. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    I wish I was as broke as Dave [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    Dave isn't warming up his voice for an album. Who ever heard of a singer doing that before? Touring is more likely to put strain on your voice.

    I think he's doing it for PR. Any negotiations with VH probably broke down around the time they started make web announcements. Dave has had a higher profile this past year than for a while - I think he just wanted to get out and show he was the "good" guy. And he barely had any time to put anything together - Bart Walsh said something about 2 weeks notice I think.

    I kind of agree with Jonathan here (sorry Jonathan).

    But if his voice is in as good of shape, like any other muscle the more you use it the stronger its gets. But you cannot overuse it or you will cause a strain.

    Dave's likely thinking is that he will do a limited number of shows while the lawyers work out the legal differences and while Eddie keeps getting stronger while recovering from cancer to just keep his voice "in shape" not overdoing it.

    And he is also keeping the Van Halen music alive so people don't forget about them.

    Eddie will probably present him many new songs for vocals and they will go on from there.

    2002 will be the year of the geezer bands,
    Van Halen will tour, as well as the Stones and there seems to be a big resurgence of 80's rock bands of late and look for them to keep it going in 2002 as well.

    People are getting tried of the same old "loser rock" as I like to call and now bands like Fuel and Creed have stepped up and make some pretty killer music.
    Those 2 bands in particular are great example of arena rock, much like we got from the mid 70's to late 80's.

    And it couldn't come soon enough. IMO
