    Default Dave says CBS will give him 3 months off to tour with VH

    According to The New York Daily News, former VAN HALEN singer David Lee Roth once again called for a reunion of the band's original lineup during his "Roth Radio" show on Tuesday (Feb. 14).

    "People want the reunion," said Roth. "No one will pay respect to what any of us do [musically] until we get the reunion out of the way.

    "Once Eddie [Van Halen] does that, everything else he does can be seen with a fresh eye."

    Roth made no secret of his own enthusiasm for a reunion tour, indicating he'd already gotten the okay from CBS Radio executives to take a leave of absence if such a tour happened.

    "VAN HALEN would go out for three months," he said. "That's all Eddie could handle. And then the next morning, I'd be back at this mic at 6 a.m."

    A tour would also pay well. Roth said the band already has offers on the table for $1 million a show.

    However much Roth may want the band to reunite, however, he wasn't using sweet talk yesterday to make it happen.

    He compared Eddie Van Halen to Sly Stone, whose brief and ragged appearance on last week's Grammy telecast rekindled reports of substance abuse.

    What's happened with Van Halen "may be on a par with what's happened with Sly Stone," said Roth.

    Roth also dismissed recent VAN HALEN shows as "lite rock" and said touring with a singer hired from a TV search would make the band "a novelty act."

    He said the situation was different with INXS, the first band on "Rock Star", "because their original lead singer was dead."

    He suggested the main reason anyone would watch VAN HALEN on "Rock Star" would be "the Gong Show factor ... seeing who screws up the most."

    I'll say it again, he is digging his own grave. He needs to shut the fuck up. I guess he is desperate for ratings or is a complete bitter asshole. What does he think he is accomplishing by talking like this? I would hate to be his manager.

    This is the most level headed comment Dave has made in awhile. A reunion would be nice, it probably wouldn't last though. A quick money grab and then we are left right back here scratching our heads and talking about another reunion. I would love to see it happen, but 20+ years changes people, it would take a miracle to pull off. Relationships change and so do people and the comment about Sly Stone may have been too much and another push away from a reunion. Just my opinion.

    Shit I'll go on a fucking cruise anyday, who wouldn't! You guys are fucking crazy. If I can get away from the daily threads everywhere hearing about how Dave is whining about VH, it would be even better.

    Sorry!


    I should've said Dave is bald!

    Bro, listen to yesterday's podcasts of the Roth show. I've provided direct links in the thread in this forum.

    Awesome.
