    Default Dave's Next Move

    If Venom Thrust is correct and VH is holding this tour off until next summer, Dave obviously won't be doing anything for awhile. I started a thread similar to this last year when he lost the radio gig, but now there's more going on. There's apparently still a reunion going on, its just a matter of what's going to happen in the meantime.

    Do you think Dave will play a few shows in the fall to keep busy or stay quiet until VH decides their next move, if they make a move? I'm curious as to what everyone thinks.

    Personally I hope he does a couple shows, I'd like to see him again before this "reunion," if it actually happens next year. But thats just me.

    It really depends on what Dave is up for and/or what he needs to do (the man does have bills to pay like everyone else). If the VH thing is still going to happen, that will probably be a major consideration in whatever he decides to do. Per the usual with all things VH and VH-related: wait and see.

    If the reunion is still on I see the guy lying low.
    He is his own worst enemy. If he goes out on tour, I can see him getting sauced up and opening his mouth and damaging what is going on.

    I think if there's a tour planned for next year, and you expect all VH members to just 'wait" a year before the tour happens, then you haven't paid attention to VH's history. There is no way the band can just "lay low" for a year and then tour. That's a recipe for disaster, I guarantee one of the guys involved will get frustrated and call off the whole thing. If they're touring in 08, then in the meantime they need to record an ALBUM (i.e. body of work of about 12 songs usually available in CD format) of new songs. If not I can promise you the whole thing will fall apart. These guys can't sit still for a year.

    Dave could very easily justify playing a few shows, while remaining in the band....

    He needs to keep his voice in shape. Vocal cords, like any other muscle, lose their strength if not used. This is why Dave's performance on the 1996 Van HALEN songs were less than they could have been.

    But then, if Van HALEN was in the studio working on the long awaited follow-up to 1984, that would also keep the pipes in shape.

    Welcome back, Van HALEN!!!!

    Ummmm....are you a regular fan of VH? ...I agree with you 100% about how they have to be out there with new music before a tour...but...this band has laid low for over 10 years...not including the 04 tour.....

    My guess is he will stay quiet. Hes gotten far enough and doesnt want to in anyway upset Eddie/alex. He wants this reunion to happen.

    His solo gigs werent exactly to big venues and im sure he will just lay low. BUT, Van halen needs to give the fans abit of news where things are. or at least when they return put out a cd.

    Heck, use the songs from the 2000 sessions and record 5-6 new songs and youve got a new cd

    I'm hoping that they are rehearsing a bit and maybe Dave is writing some lyrics.

    "Shutthefuckupity" - DIF on John Cusack.

    I just had a weird thought.....

    (DISCLAIMER: I am absolutely NOT starting a rumor here, god damn it)

    What if Van HALEN made a surprise appearance at Live Earth?

    20 minutes on stage just to let us know they're alive and (getting) well and stay tuned for next year.

    It would sure make up for .......uh you all know damn well what
