    Default Excellent Alex quote

    From last summer, I think pretty much sums up the future of Van Halen.

    Quote:

    We've matured," Alex Van Halen, 54, says. "It's a bad word that I don't allow in my household, but there's
    truth to it. The creative tension is still there, which is great. As for other stuff, I'll speak for myself. We
    made a mistake. The whole thing unraveled. We were buddies for 11 years, and all of a sudden it stopped.
    We were rash, things blew apart very fast and uncontrollably, and it ain't going to happen again.

    "We're all grown-ups," he says, "and we'll take full responsibility for what happened, but there were outside
    forces that tried to drive wedges between people, and you don't always get the full picture. Before you know it,
    decisions are being made for you and you look back and say, 'How the hell did that happen?' "
    'Old Van Halen, when I was in it-classic Van Halen-makes you wanna drink, dance and screw, right? And the new Van Halen encourages you to drink milk, drive a Nissan and have a relationship.' - David Lee Roth.

    Awesome quote! Talk about how mature Al is to fess up and take responsibility for his actions! He also did blame outside forces, but with guys like Ray Danniels, Bruce Fairbarn, and Glen Ballard, can you blame Al?

    "I could call it anything, but the only word I can think of is Brown. It's just a warm sound. Warm, big, majestic" - Eddie Van Halen on his Tone

    "Van Halen is definitely a ladies band, and I´ve got the Polaroids to prove it". - David Lee Roth

    WOLFGANG did the IMPOSSIBLE, he brought back VAN HALEN, DEAL WITH IT.

    Van Halen LET Ray Danniels destroy Van Halen. It's their band, it's their fault they are where they are now.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    I don't think Bruce and Glen should share any blame for the demise of the Sammy led Van Halen back then. There was already mass amounts of tension...it was probably very difficult for them to work with Van Halen. Now, as for Ray Daniels..yea, the guy is the yoko of Van Halen.

    I'm not here to defend Ray Daniels, other than to say this simply.

    Ray Daniels manages another band, Rush, and has for a number of years. While Rush has never received the accolades they are due, they have been very well managed, they all have a ton of money, they just played an absolutely brilliant tour, every few years they make a new record, their website absolutely kills Van Halens' site, they send out frequent and pertinent email to their fan base, etc. Their base isn't alienated in any way.

    Van Halen killed itself...Ray may well have been the wrong prescription for them at the time, but he really shouldn't be blamed for it either.
    You know the best tone I ever had was with that little bandmaster cranked to 10. Edward Van Halen, 1980, Guitar Player Magazine.

    The Rush show I saw last summer is one of the best rock shows I have ever been to. Easily the best show I saw last year.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.
