    Default Eddie Van Halen: No More Tours

    So I know a guy. That's all I can say about his cred, so take it for what it's worth, just another rumor, no biggie, but I thought I'd post it anyway in the rumor mill. I'm not saying the guy's word is gospel, 'cause it sure ain't, and even if it was said in the moment, we all know how Ed runs off at the mouth and changes his mind at the drop of a hat. But I do know for a fact this guy does hang out with the Van Halen bros. once or twice a year.

    He brought up last year's tour, whereupon Ed firmly maintained he was DONE with touring live. Said he'd tag along with Wolfie should his son ever form a band, but that's it.

    Asked about Dave, said he'd love to cut another album with either Dave or Sam, doesn't really care which one, 'has tons of music needing lyrics', [LOL, we've never heard that one before], but that Al wouldn't step foot in a studio with Dave, so it'll probably be Sam, late summer or fall he thought.

    Then asked about the support for a new album, if the record co. would even let him "not tour." Ed hemmed and hawed, said "maybe a mini West Coast tour, if that. But I'm done getting ripped apart on my live performance.''

    I laughed about that last bit, and my associate did too, then added, "Sure, they all say that, until they need their next McMansion renovated."

    Anyway, nothing majorly new here, just some more gristle for the grapevine.

    I guess that contradicts what he told the two dorks- he said he wants to make a new album, then tour behind it.

    Here's the thing. I know this dude, he has little reason to bullshit about this stuff. So I kinda think it was in fact 'said.'

    Whether Ed in fact MEANT what he said, is another issue altogether.

    Well, I'll ALWAYS care, just difficult to believe ANYTHING surrounding this band.

    When did Ed suddenly start admitting that he cares what people think, especially those who discuss it on the internet? He's done enough in his career that he shouldn't have to worry about what anybody says now.

    Well...rumor has it Dave might've fooled around with one of Al's wives.

    And possibly Al might not have been as into the whole midgets-Dave TV-Napoleon circus as Dave was.

    BTW, you guys who think Ed doesn't care about public perceptions are fooling yourselves. One only had to see his reactions onstage last year to adoring crowds to witness proof of this. Don't matter much what he says in interviews, in the end he's just like us, fallible, subject to validation by others as much as anybody else.

    I would venture to guess dorkier than most.

    But that would explain Edward's "I'm done with that" statement mentioned in these parts.

    But again like everyone's saying, who knows what to believe anymore???

    Nobody can tell if you're a guy or a girl. You must be a young'un, methinks. Enlighten us, so we know how to respond to your occasional slags.

    BTW, I'm as cool as an iceberg, babe. Dude. Whatever.

    LOL! Didn't they all? Eagles, Cher, Stones, doesn't matter.

    Still, last year's outing was not touted as a Farewell Tour. Not that I believe Ed or Al would dare define anything in the VH world.
