    This was received a few minutes ago from vh@yahoogroups. Pretty interesting, and there's some hopeful stuff in there for fans overseas! Read on......

    All,

    Dave was on KQRC 98.9 in Kansas City this morning to explain the
    cancellation/postponement of a couple of the tour dates, specifically the
    one here in KC. All morning long the DJ was saying that it was due to an
    injury, but Dave immediately said that no one was hurt, and that it was
    due to the fact that the tour was put together so quickly and that they
    had too many shows in a row scheduled. He said that he and Sammy wanted
    to give everyone their money's worth and that they didn't want to "walk
    through" shows just because the promoters and agents wanted them to.
    Dave equated it to an episode of "The Osbourne's" when Sharon had
    Ozzy set up for two or three back-to-back dates in a row in different
    cities, and how Ozzy didn't want to do it because he would be exhausted,
    his voice wouldn't be up to snuff, and he didn't want to cheat the fans
    from a great show. Dave didn't flat out say that he and/or Sammy were
    tired, but he indicated that the schedule has been wearing on them. He
    said that the tour has really blown up, and that they're setting up dates
    well past Labor Day so they can hit Japan and Australia and "go around
    the World." On the subject of "The Osbourne's" Dave said that VH1 want's
    to film a 13-episode show following the Tour, to which Dave's comment was
    that "they'll have to edit out more than just dog poop for us."

    Dave mentioned that he and Sammy are getting along great, and that
    they're having a hard time trying to keep up the perception that they
    don't like each other. The DJ brought up the fact that they had Mike
    come up on-stage in Indy, and Dave said that he met up with him backstage.
    He also mentioned the appearance of Kid Rock and Ted Nugent in Detroit,
    and the (potential?) appearance of Dr. Dre and Snoop Dog in LA. Finally,
    his only shot of the interview came when he said the only person who
    hasn't shown up backstage is "Eddie Van Heineken."

    All in all, Dave sounded up-beat, and excited about how the tour has been
    going so far. He said no one really knew, except for himself in his
    "Christ-like humility", that the tour was going to be so big and
    successful. He said the shows have been going well and that the fans have
    been great.
    "Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that."

    "This is a lttle prayer dedicated to the separation of church and state. I guess if they are going to force those kids to pray in schools they might as well have a nice prayer like this: Our Father who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation indivisible as in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail. Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."

    "I think it's the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is drawn and cross it deliberately."

    -George Carlin 1937 - 2008

    Cool interview.

    I'm sure that both the singers are getting a little worn out. Dave's voice isn't the greatest live so a couple extra days of rest won't hurt him. As for Sammy, the first few dates of his/Van Halen's tours, he usually ends up sick.

    i hate rock dj's. they're all so afraid to dig deeper with questions. if i had dave sitting in front of me and he mentioned that he ran into mike backstage i'd follow it up by asking him how that went. or why didnt mike come out with you? etc etc etc.

    dj's.....
