    Default Another VH Rumor

    If anyone lives in Ohio and can listen to WIOT 104.7 fm, you might know a guy by the name of Grizzley Brown. I'm pretty sure that's his name. Anyway, he was taking requests and I called in. I asked him if he could play some VH with Dave. He started joking around and asked me if something from OU812 was fine. But anyway, we settled on Eruption/You Really Got Me. But anyway, this guy asked me if I saw VH on their last tour. I told him I went to the Cleveland show last July. He said that this past tour was VH's last because Sammy quit and Dave won't come back because he won't sing Sam's stuff.

    I know this is just another rumor. But if Sammy would have quit, don't you think either side would have said something by now?

    Complete Monkey crap!!

    1rst of all, if Dave came back, there is no reason he even has to song Sammy songs. They have enough of the Dave era catalog to keep everyone happy.
    If you think for 1 minute Dave would not jump right back in the saddle for that cash cow, someone need's to put down the funny glass pipe.

    Rumors are entertaining for certain, but I wish just once there would be a rumor that make's us all go...hmmm , could it be?
    Most of us understand how this band operates and the personalities involved so it's pretty easy for us distinguish the crap from the real possibilities.

    Some get me a good rumor!!!!!!

    yeah....this is totally bogus....Sam has talked about how terrible his relationship is with ed and stuff but he hasn't said "I'm out of the band".....i'm sure he would do that if it happened....which it might....who knows.

    Unlikely that the one hangup in the inevitable Dave reunion is Dave refusing to sing Sam's tunes.

    I can think of, oh, about a billion other reasons.

    For some reason I don't think Eddie would mind playing only DLR songs.

    I think he is tired of playing the same set list.

    The VH catalog from the DLR years is enough for them to tour on especially if they add a few cover tunes and maybe a couple of new ones.

    The reason people want to see Dave back with VH is to hear songs that haven't been done in over 20 years performed again. Beautiful Girls, Everybody Wants Some,So This is Love, Little Guitars, Hot For Teacher, Ice Cream Man, etc. Not to mention all the gems most people missed on the III tour--Mean Street, Jamie's Cryin, Feel Your Love Tonight, Romeo Delight,Dance the Night Away, etc. Toss in some less obvious songs for the die-hards, Light Up the Sky, DOA, In a Simple Rhyme, Hear About It Later, Girl Gone Bad, etc. Nobody wants Dave back so they can hear his interpretation of Runaround.

    I, for one, have a hard time believing Dave wouldn't jump at the chance for a reunion tour--even if he had to sing a few Sammy songs. I just don't think anyone would make him, not on the first tour in twenty years. If other tours followed in later years, maybe then. Of course, I tend to believe that if there was a VH reunion tour with Dave that would be the end of things, not a new beginning.

    I listen to that station and highly doubt that a dj from Toledo,Ohio has any idea whats going on in Van Halen.

    It sure seems that way these days .... I think thats where the problems with van halen start. Eds stuck with Sammy and Sammy won;y budge on the Dave tunes, so Ed goes out plays what he has to and drinks maybe to get through it ?

    Playing the snipets of Dave tunes at sound checks and shit is not enough for Ed these days, I think he really wants to rip into so very old classic Van Halen.

    It used to be, back in the day, that DJ's (or radio station ----> DJ) had the inside scoop. But nowadays it's all about media hype....you can't really trust too much of any form of media unless it's coming from the horses mouth.

    On topic - I like to think that Dave could be coerced into doing a reunion tour, under the right circumstances. But then again, I might be biased.

    As far as Sammy leaving....I'd say an announcement will be forthcoming.

    If DLR were to ever return not only would he never do any Sammy era songs but nobody would want him to. At this point with all of Sammy's childish mudslinging at Edward I really wouldn't mind to see the band come full circle release the three tracks they worked on with DLR in 2000 and do a "Farewell Tour".
