    I talked with Eddie.

    He said Alex is fine. He sees him every day. They jam together.

    I asked him about the singer situation. He said they have a lot of singers. Frankly, I don't know what he meant by this: if he was avoiding the question, or what.

    He kinda complained about Roth and Hagar touring and playing "his music." I then asked him if there were any chance of joining Sam and/or Dave at Universal Amphitheatre. He replied, "are you kidding me, after both of those guys left the band?!

    I asked him about the supposed radio report that Mike is no longer with Van Halen. He told me that I'm listening to too many people. He said that he's easy, that he'll jam with anybody.

    With regard to a time frame for releasing new music, he said, "In God's time."

    I asked him about a Warner Bros box set. His reply, "you think they would ask us," ie, Warners hasn't approached him about a box set.

    Gosh, I wish I could regale you guys with what Eddie said or how he looked. Instead, I can tell you about

    1. The paparazzi photographer who stalked Joe Pesci all day;

    2. The French woman photographer, dressed head to toe in haute couture leather, who kept saying "I am going to sell zeese pictures" although she hadn't a clue who anyone was;

    3 The mentally challenged man who kept honing in on me like radar to report who he'd seen ("I saw Bobby Sherman, he's my FAVORITE!!!")

    4. The couple whose conversation consisted only of: WOMAN: I want to go NOW. MAN: I'm not leaving until I see Eddie Van Halen, you know how many years I've loved him;"

    and my personal favorite:
    5. The incident in which Meat Loaf suddenly swerved his golf cart and almost hit the In and Out Burger Truck.

    I don't know how many times I walked up and down that course, with nary a spotting!

    P.S. The picture of him in the program was taken sometim during the Roth years. He's wearing red and white (I think, it's a b/w pic) wave pattenred overalls.

    Certainly not where you are standing. I kept walking up and down from the 9th hole to the back refreshment tent.

    Wow... good job, Joe!

    Just a question: was it easy to approach Eddie and get him to asnwer those questions? Did he seem to mind that a fan would ask him that?

    As far as the box set, did he confirm its existence, or just said it won't happen altogether?

    So you have a feeling Ed thinks Mike's still in the band? Coz he sure ain't jamming with them these days...

    Joe, thanks man, thats great to hear a report. Let me ask you this though... GET WORDY! Let us live vicariously through you for a while, none of us will probably ever get the chance to do what you just did. Tell us every detail. How did you approach him? How long did you talk? What was the atmosphere like? Was he loose or wirey? Did he look pretty healthy? Happy? Pissed? Did any other fans ask anything else about him? Was he a main attraction? Did he give any indication whatsoever that something is on the horizon? What does your gut tell you after today?

    I think you get the point.

    I've been waiting for a chance to ask somebody all this shit! Thanks Joe!! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    I was surprised that he talked with me the way he did. He was more personable at this year's tournament (compared to last year). I used the approach to ask him about Alex first. It seemed to work. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    He definitely did not confirm the existance of a box set. He gave me the impression that it is not happening.

    Yes, I got the feeling that Mike is still in the band.
