    Default If this is true...

    ...then good for Dave! IF #2 is accurate I think that's awesome. Someone posted this over at blabbermouth.net

    I was listening to "Friday Night Rocks! with Eddie Trunk" and He talked about this whole VAN HALEN fiasco.

    According to Eddie Trunk, He says from what he has heard from people close to the band some of the reasons why this "Reunion" fell apart is because after they rehearsed a few times David Lee Roth started pushing for Michael Anthony to be part of this tour for a few reasons (1) Mike sings alot of the background vocals and ALL of the high harmonies, Which Wolfgang can't do. (2) Roth thinks if they're going to do this reunion tour, they should do it right and have all four original members on tour. Not bill it as a reunion tour and only have 3/4 of the band performing. (3) The balance of power would be against him. It would be the Van Halens and Roth. At least, Having Mike would balance the power a little bit.

    He mentions a little bit about this in his blog:
    http://www.eddietrunk.com/blog.php
    I can't remember which comedian said it, about the current state of Van Halen, but he said right now, Van Halen is like a really hot playboy playmate with a prosthetic leg.

    BRING BACK THE CLASSIC LINEUP!

    I can't even have an opinion on ANYTHING anymore unless it's exactly what everyone else thinks...oh and if I do it means I HATE this album, and hope it fails. Man some of you can fuck off...seriously. - BRETT

    Mike can't be in two bands.

    Eddie Trunk is also the guy who had that fake 'Eddie Van Halen/Hit Parader interview" that was made up by Rikk at the Roth Army on his website for 2 weeks.

    that's bullshit. There hasn't been any evidence of this from any source whatsoever.
    Wolfie is not Mike, but he's more than ok.
    Mike is gone, but not forgotten. They played some amazing shows from 2007-2015; some people are in denial about it.

    Yeah, half of that info was posted on here (Roth wanting the balance of power to be equal, not him vs. Van Halens). It's all pure speculation. No one, except for Eddie, knows the future for this tour. Even then, he'll probably forget what he decided yesterday and come up with something new tomorrow.

    Besides, I doubt it's true based on what Dave said in interviews, the contract was already signed, and they did a photo shoot. Sounds like Dave pretty much made up his mind he would do it. And he's been waiting so long to play with Ed on stage again, he could probably care less at this point.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    I don't see how this could be true. Dave would've mentioned something about it in that LA Times piece. Even if he didn't, it wouldn't explain why Dave would hint that maybe Ed wouldn't be traveling to the RRHOF induction. That indicates Ed has an issue. The fragile politcs thing fits, but nothing else.
    We also have solid evidence from Andrew that it's an Ed issue.
    Dave wouldn't have gone down the publicity road with Wolf if this hadn't been hashed out already.

    IF this is true, then good for Dave. The only way he can redeem himself - in my eyes - is to pull Mike in. Otherwise, he's just desperate for attention and a paycheck.

    How can you all bash him so much? He interviews a lot of legends, He doesn't claim to be the authority and you know...you take everything with a grain of salt until its confirmed by the parties invloved anyways.


    IMO this is awesome news for VH despite the tragic unfolding of it. Maybe this is the begining of ED getting healthier and mending some fences. Maybe the original VH lineup can emrge with a new tour and new music in the future.

    It's funny I used to look at the rock news on Eddie Trunk, until I started noticing that all his news was stuff that was all over the net usually a couple of weeks earlier. The other thing I noticed was that instead of real legitimate stories, usually 75% of the shit he claims is rock news are really just rumors he picked up from somewhere else.
    Keep looking at his site, in a week or two he'll have the Ace Frehley commits suicide story on there. ( not true by the way! )
    He or his cronies that pick up this stuff are totally full of shit!

    i listened to trunk's show... he was speculating about what he thought the issue was... "the things he heard" could very well be him debating among his interns and/or co-workers... i like eddie trunk, but he's not the best in the rumor mill business at all... he often refers to stuff that was on blabbermouth (without naming it) a week or two later as "news and rumors" floating on the internet...

    when he was speculating about vh, he even qualified it by saying something to the effect, "now i'm definitely no insider"... i was very close to calling in or even e-mailing him, but it would've been a lost cause because who cares what he says... yes, he does get a lot of great interviews, and he doesn't pull punches when he's conducting them, so you at least know that you're getting factual info at those times... but as far as eddie's "news" and "rumors" reporting goes, his stuff often doesn't pan out...
