    so some student who writes for the SDSU paper is an authority on music?

    He didn't really do his research about why there was just Mike and Sam, very vague stuff. And plenty of people cared in 2004, and they would again.
    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.

    Most people still care, it is just frutrating when it looks pretty obvious that VH doesn't. Granted, If Ed needed help, then people (in the general public) need to stop critizing the fact that it was a factor in VH not touring this year. It is better to have him sober with no tour planned rather than putting him through a huge tour and having his problems with alcohol get increasing worse to the point where it may indanger his life.

    I think the fact the article itself was even written is an indication that people do care. Why else would it be of interest or worth writing about?

    Good catch. I can't believe I didn't see that. He is obviously not among the "fans" otherwise he would have known that. Besides, it was in headlines everywhere this year. How could he F'up like that?

    Van Halen has been out of the rock and roll spotlight since TWISTER was in theaters.
    Glad this guy has finally caught on.

    Some facts are off, but the sentiment is dead on.

    Good article.

    We core fans are just hanging on for a hopeful dose of nostalgia. Maybe next year. Or not.
