    Default Inc. Magazine article; Alex Van Halen's hearing aids

    This is a pretty cool article I just read in the new issue of Inc. Magazine.

    HA! Great read! Had NO idea Alex and Van Halen had a MAJOR hand in developing in-ears. You learn something new everyday!

    Plus, nice little bit here:

    "The music still bounces off the laboratory walls; it's just that now it's played closer to a doctor's office level, per Mindy's request. Growing up happens to the best of us. Sammy Hagar turns 60 this October. But don't think for a second that Mindy and Jerry aren't enjoying their second act. For starters, they both had love come walking in. Jerry got married for a third time, moved back home to St. Louis, and has a young daughter, Katie. It's only a temporary domestication, he says, because if the rumors are true, Van Halen will be going out on tour this fall after Eddie gets out of rehab."

    "20 minutes (late to work)? Shit. Last year I woke up three weeks too late.
    My advice is to go for the alien abduction story. Look bemused, dishevelled and on the verge of tears as you recount your story of intrusive and degrading medical tests.
    Worked for me anyway. I still have colleagues asking me what it is like to fuck a green womanoid with seventeen breasts.
    Alternatively just walk in and inform everyone that alcoholism is indeed a disease and that they should be less judgemental and perhaps a little more supportive."

    Yes - great article. It's weird seeing the name Van Halen on the cover of Inc. magazine.

    Alex Van Halen GAVE AN INTERVIEW ALONE????

    That's a major development. Ok it's only about ear pieces, but nonetheless it's pretty amazing.

    Now about Van Halen going on tour in the fall, they didn't say which Van Halen...

    it's a good magazine; not a lot of fluff; I've gotten it for years. It's funny, because I don't usually rip it open and read it right away. But in the upper right hand corner it said 'How to profit from Bubbles, and Flat screen TVs, Harry Potter and Van Halen';
    This time I did. i figured it was a real small non-relevant tidbit on VH....
    There's a great two page color photo of Mike, Dave & Eddie from the 1982 tour in the beginning of the article. It was cool seeing that in this magazine.

    Apparently, the people charged with "monitoring" AVH dozed off and AVH wandered off and gave an interview. Protocol has been broken; security has been breached. I'm sure Camp VH is in crisis lockdown at the moment.

    Viva La Halen!!

    Great article. Thanks for the link!
    DLR, circa 2001:

    "Hey this is David Lee Roth and I promised you the news and here's the news.

    About a year ago myself and the great Van Halen band played together once or twice and it sounded amazing!

    In the following several months Edward and I, Edward Van Halen and me, David Lee Roth, created some of the most amazing, phenomenal - the hands fell off the clock ladies and gentleman and we wrote three astonishing tunes.

    That was last July (2000) and since then I haven't been up to the studio, we haven't really been in touch and we haven't made any music, but I am holding forth, I'm in the shape of my life and I got the high note - I'm ready to go.

    And I am positive for the future ladies and gentleman.

    Stay tuned and I'll tell you what the future brings..."
