    A MESSAGE FROM DAVID LEE ROTH.
    Taken from Slawterhouse...

    [27 APRIL 2001]

    The following is a message from David Lee Roth to you, the fans, and to Edward Van Halen, in response to last evening's statement released by Edward:


    "I was stunned this morning to
    learn Eddie Van Halen has cancer.

    My condolences.

    You can whip this champ.

    See ya down the road,

    D."

    Yeah, I just can't see how there's any possible way Dave didn't know about Ed's condition, but who knows? The part I like though is the "See ya down the road" line. Hopefully, he meant "See you and all the fans ON the road" and soooon ... [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    "One of the reasons I left Sabbath was because Van Halen was blowing us off the stage every night. It was embarrassing." -Ozzy Osbourne

    "When I first heard "Runnin' With The Devil" on the radio, I was stunned and found myself dizzy, walking through my high school hallways thinking, "What was THAT?!"
    Eddie Van Halen was so innovative and kicked so much ass, and David Lee Roth was for a time indisputably the Greatest Man in America.
    If aliens came down and challenged us to a Battle of the Bands to decide the fate of Planet Earth, I would feel very confident putting early Van Halen forward as our champion." -Tom Morello

    "A lot of bands mature, which means they get square; they start delivering messages. Hey, you got a message, use Western Union." -DLR

    I find it hard to believe that he didn't know that Eddie had cancer... plus didn't Dave say he was working with the band in 2000 and isn't that when we found out about Ed's cancer ordeal??

    I think that Dave probably thought Ed had had that pre-cancerous tumour thing removed last year and was ok. Clearly Ed wanted to keep this to himself which is natural and understandable. At least he knows how much support he has from fans. All the bullshyt aside, everyone loves this guy and wants to see him well [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    If Dave did'nt know about Eddie having cancer, then you have to wonder why not. If Dave was back in the loop then you know he would have known this for sometime. This just puts the iceing on the cake for me as to the question of Dave rejoining VH. I don't think it's gonna happen.

    I'm getting the distinct impression theres not a 'loop' for Dave (or Sammy, or Fred the singing warthog) to be in right at the moment.

    Excuse my cynicism but I think it highly unlikely that Dave didn't know. And I certainly doubt whether he was "stunned". If he was working with them in July- that was after we found out about Eddie's treatment program. Tracii Guns knew, Kip Winger knew, but Dave didn't know?

    I don't doubt that Eddie has cancer, and I wish him all the best for a full and speedy recovery. But WTF is with this information overload - 4 statements in a week and Val all over radio yesterday. I kinda wish they would shut up [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    If Sammy Hagar is a classy guy then I hope he will respond in some way of the news of Edward's health.

    Get well Edward we're all pulling for you.

    Yeah, what is with all the information ?

    Seriously though, this shows DLR is a class individual. I like the part about "you can whip this champ"

    Man, could Dave be that out of it?

    I'd expect a Sammy responce, but first Paula needs to fix the web page so it loads well enough for us to SEE IT! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Of course Dave knew -- as did nearly everyone who saw Eddie's cryptic statement last year. Reading between the lines, Dave is saying that even though DLR was good enough to collaborate with on "3 amazing tunes", Ed did not bother to clue him in directly. Basically, Dave is highlighting for us how dysfunctional this relationship really is.

    We all truly hope Edward is healthy. But I'm getting the distinct impression that Ed is using this as a crutch or a sympathy ploy.

    Q: Why after months of silence does Eddie choose to reveal more details on his health?

    A: Dave released an update statement last week with actual information and applied some pressure to the 5150 boys. The VH response was universally dismissed by fans as more "no news is good news". This is a second attempt at PR.

    Q: Ed looked pretty good on the NAMM video in January. Why no statement then?

    A: Because the only reason we get information out of VH is when they need to play catch up on PR.

    Q: Why the delay between when Ed received positive news ("Spring Break") and now?

    A: Because the only reason we get information out of VH is when they need to play catch up on PR.

    The bottom line -- as happy as we are to receive some clue these past few weeks, it's not a very good sign when Ed & DLR are communicating via press releases.

    Eddie's statement came at around 7pm Pacific time, Dave's response was up by 2am. Just as well Dave was having a quiet night in surfing the net to find out the info don't you think? [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

    My own reading between the lines suggests that each party had some advance warning of some of the statements we've read over the last week.
