    Default ma speaks out edie van halen and tour

    Launch Radio Networks reports: Last year's VAN HALEN reunion tour thrilled fans around North America, but things were not quite as euphoric inside the band. Bassist Michael Anthony told Launch that guitarist Eddie Van Halen's continued drinking made things a bit erratic and seems to have halted plans for future touring. "I hate to talk smack about anyone in the band or whatever, but, y'know, Eddie, you know, he's still doing a bit of drinking and everything," he said. "There were nights where it was kind of like a rollercoaster, up or down, and myself, I would have liked to have seen him totally clean up if we were gonna take this further and, like, 'cause, gosh, we could've gone all around the world with it."

    I think Mike saying what Eddie should do is none of his business.

    Sure he's concerned, but to go out in public to say that Ed needs help does nothing for the state of the band and so on.

    I think Mikey owes it to Eddie to not make a statement like that to the public, unless he feels he has some axe to grind with EVH. I surely wouldn't throw my bandmates under the bus to the press like that. I'm kind of surprised Mike would make that comment.

    VV and Brett are bang on, that shit should stay within the band, there is no reason to speak to the press with it or take it on stage, it`s just cowardly and low, and I am not saying it just becasue they are speaking of Ed, the same should apply with Ed and Al towards them as well, the shit is just not call for.

    You people beg and whine and wimper for news from the band.Then you get it and you say "they should keep quiet".
    This is what everyone in these forums has been talking about since the tour ended, now two members have pretty much said out loud what everyone sits in front of their computer and thinks, and you don't like it.
    Before long, somebody will no doubt say "It wouldn't have been like this if Dave was still in the band" and it can deteriorate into another one of those discussions.

    What is this Blabbermouth.net???? Are they legit??
    If they are, it wasn't too cool of Mikey to say something like that. Where would he be without the mighty VH????
    Not Cool.

    I would say Sam put Mike up to saying something like that.

    When you hang out with someone for a while that's constantly pissing on someone else, that kinda rubs off and you end up doing the same thing.

    Wait a second guys. Maybe, just maybe, this is the only way to get through to Eddie. If Ed wont listen to them when they are around, maybe he'll get it through his head if it's thrown into the public eye?

    Propbably not. The only way Ed is going to stop is if Ed wants too. And, apparently, Ed doesn't. :-(

    All I'm askin is if this blabbermouth.net is or is not legit.
    I'm taking this "news" with a grain of salt as with everything about VH at this point.
    Nobody said they didn't like it, at least I didn't. I said it wasn't cool, and it's not, to diss on somebody like that.
    This really isn't news anyways, it's just a comment/statement supposedly from a band (?) member. It's not a collective release about the state of the band at this time. IMO, of course.
