    Default Eddie talks to Guitar World (dated 12/11)!

    According to Blabbermouth...

    EDDIE VAN HALEN: The Ball Is In DAVE LEE ROTH's Court - Dec. 11, 2006

    Eddie Van Halen spoke to Guitar World magazine about the current status of VAN HALEN following the departures of vocalist Sammy Hagar and bassist Michael Anthony.

    Rumors continue to swirl that original singer David Lee Roth, who was replaced by Hagar in the mid-1980s, will return to the fold, despite years of enmity. Roth, who has recently worked as a radio DJ and a paramedic, told Billboard.com in May that he saw it "absolutely as an inevitability."

    "I'm telling Dave, 'Dude, get your ass up here and sing, bitch! Come on!'" Eddie told Guitar World. "As it stands right now, the ball is in Dave's court. Whether he wants to rise to the ocassion is entirely up to him, but we're ready to go."

    Eddie has brought his 15-year-old son, Wolfgang, into VAN HALEN as the veteran rock band's new bass player. Father and son, along with Eddie's drummer brother Alex, have been rehearsing for a 2007 tour.

    "Wolfgang breathes new life into what we're doing," said Eddie. "He brings youthfulness to something that's inherently youthful. He's only been playing bass for three months, but it's spooky. He's locked tight and puts an incredible spin on our shit. The kid is kicking my ass! He's spanking me now, even though I never spanked him. To have my son follow in my footsteps on his own, without me pushing him into it, is the greatest feeling in the world."

    Nah, let's continue opening new threads on the same information.

    Isn't anyone capable of reading anymore?

    One would think the other giant thread would be kinda hard to miss.

    i guess im in the minority.

    I think its great what Ed is feeling and saying. Nothing greater than the love for a child and for his son to be doing this, i'd be proud too!

    the only person that can breath new life into the music in this band is the lead singer...and we all know what has happend in the past. Fuck the singers. Since Wolfie is so great on the bass, go out as a trio and perform rock instrumental music. That way all three members can shine, and they don't have to complain about LSD, shitty lyrics, and shitty vocals.

    Peace out.

    Mixed feelings about this, but something tells me that Wolfgang is the reason Ed is open to having Dave back...I think Wolfie is doing the pushing to do something with his dad, and that father-son connecting is probably erasing the hostility towards Dave on Eddie's part

    The bad thing is, I don't know how objectively Ed can evaluate Wolfie being ready to do this...I'll bet Ed will record back up bass tracks for good measure
