    I Got this "quote" from a thread on the Van Halen usenet group - BS or truth? And what is E?

    According to E, Alex Van Halen got tipsey at a New Years party and
    after a little pressure started talking... "We haven't done or said
    anything because my brother is healing and we have families to take
    care of. Maybe we'll put something (else) out, maybe we'll call it
    quits. We're still thinking about it. Right now, it's looking like
    we're calling it quits, does anyone have a problem with that? There's
    only so much of your life you can devote to this shit. That's why
    atheletes don't play for 20-30 years, after a while it starts to kill
    you, and that's all I have to say regarding Van Halen".

    Glenn - Just wondering what makes you think that. Personally I could see the members doing their own thing, solo. They're musicians and I don't see them stop making music. But Van Halen the band may not remain.

Alex got tipsy and said things like "does anyone have a problem with that?", and "that's all I have to say regarding Van Halen"??? Sounds pretty nonsensical to me.

    if alex was tipsy, then he's fallen off the wagon.
    and even if he said this, who knows in what context it was spoken.

    Its very possible Al fell off the wagon and said some things out of frustration (as well as being under the influence).

    out of all the rumors, I tend to think this one sounds the closest to the truth.

    but I guess I'm just being to pessimistic.

    I don't really believe this one. Both Eddie and Alex have said in previous interviews that music is their life. Maybe they could be done with 'Van Halen' but I don't think we've heard the last of these two. They both are too talented for that. Plus, music is in their blood. They will return someday...

    that they are musicians and they'll make
    music till the day they die, but I'm wondering if
    things haven't changed for them as they get older?

    Neither Alex or Ed is in very good physical form.
    They can't find a singer that will work out for
    them AND the fans, and let's face it, the music business has changed a lot since their glory days.
    I wonder if Van Halen has stopped being fun for them? Why do it if your not having a good time?
    At this point, VH seems to have problems beyond oo
    repair.I thave read interviews with EVH and Alex stating
