    Default VH mention on Letterman tonight!

    In the top ten list of ways President Bush can improve his approval rating --
    Use his weekly radio address for a Van Halen two-fer. (I forget which number this was). Then Paul and the band played a weird version of Jump out of the top ten!

    I caught it too. Very rarely do I watch Letterman anymore, but it was a nice surprise to see "VAN HALEN" in someway on TV. Maybe this was an invite to the boys.....

    Paul and the band used to play "Finish What Ya Started" as bumper music all the time, and sometimes "Panama", but I'm not sure if they do anymore. That was cool.

    It is the Dave reunion plan playing out. Letterman is creating the buzz, getting the casual fan to think about VH again. Ed will then sit in with the band for a few shows, etc.,etc,. Then there will be this huge show in which VH announce that they are back together. Something like Shwartznthhinger did on Leno announcing that he was running for governer. It only makes sense, why would VH announce it on radio or MTV...they don't play them anymore. Why do you think Ed was in New York with guitars? Rehearsing with the band! Who do you think that crazed fan was that Ed was chasing down to "autograph his glasses"? Letterman! I'm telling you, this is how it will happen...

    Paul is a pretty big EVH fan. He invited Ed to do that garage band thing a few years back, and Ed is one of the few guys Paul has allowed "in the pit" behind all his keyboards with him.

    I think it's Dave's corn ballish delivery that makes things so funny. Dave's actually did a little pause to get the full effect and a reaction from Paul. The most applause was for Bush to resign...

    It didn't go over well. People didn't get the Van Halen Two-Fer segue.
