    Default Press Conference: Thoughts and Reactions...

    Well I for one am STOKED. I would like to really thank the guys for making this happen.

    Thoughts:

    Did Dave seem a little nervous at first?

    Thought they all looked great. Ed may be a little on the thin side though, but I guess that's him.

    Dave looks stellar. I think he was wearing the same shirt from the party with the graphic designer under his jacket though? I could be wrong.

    Wolf looked nervous, poor kid. But looks like he's ready to kick ass.

    Dave hugged Eddie!!!

    Later, Eddie kissed Dave!!!

    Alex didn't say much...

    What gave me goosebumps is the quote about listening to VH at a Burger King drive-through...that's exactly what I remember from high school!!!

    Welcome back, boys! It's been too long!!

    didn't he say the same thing when he went on tour with Sammy a few years ago?

    just my opinion but i sensed a few tense moments by watching eddie while roth was talking....

    when roth mentioned the police

    when roth mentioned U2 and bono

    when roth mentioned the porn guy

    when roth mentioned michael jackson

    when roth mentioned valerie

    Golly Gee,
    It is soo wonderful to see that they love each other and are back together. What a bunch of shit. Dave is biting his tongue on this. You can't believe the crap he's throwing, can you? Al's keeping quiet because he doesn;t want to fuck up he meal ticket. Watching the early vids before the press just made me again realize how importand Mike is to that band.
    Related note: Photo shopping Mike out of the past albums on the website is soo rediculous I can't believe it. Incedently, BRAD DID NOT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE NEW SITE...

    Yeah, I had goosebumps as soon as I saw Dave and Eddie walking into the room. Ed looks frail, but after all he's been through, I'm not surprised. Good to see them together and smiling. I liked the fact that the aren't calling it a reunion.

    Can't remember what he said, but Dave made some remark that I took as a little jab at Mike, but whatever. I'm sure the news conference will show up on Youtube soon and I can listen to it again.

    No, I can't believe people are buying into that shit about 'brotherhood like never before'. It's so controlled it's laughable. This is gonna blow up in their face, big time.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    Q: who was the biggest douche that you have worked with?

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Now the new David-Lee-Roth-Van Halen album, “Tokyo Dome In Concert,” is available for purchase, and it’s super, super, super, super, super, super, crazy bad. - Doug Elfman

    It seemed weird to me. Watching the old vids prior got me in a different mood that the confrence itself. Ed looked good, thin and old, but good. Al looked pretty much the same as he has since 89 or so. Wolf looked nervous, probably shitting his pants up there. Dave was like he seemed like... Dave lite if that makes sense. He seemed rapid fire, but not all that funny...like a cautious Dave, he even asked Ed if he was out of line to let him know, that makes me think hes on a short leash with Ed. No bashing of Mike, but they took care of that on the website. No mention of Sam, other than the passing "alumni" comment. Ed saying they havent learned Me wise magic or CGTSNM was funny.

    we'll see. Indianapolis is closest show to me so I'll monitor ticket prices.

    Color me cautious.

    They look great in that pic, best Dave has looked in a long time... but can he carry that mature look onto stage. Don't get me wrong, keep it Dave, its still rock and roll, but will he slip back into thinking its 1984 again.

    I thought the press conferene was great. They are a "new" band that will continue after the tour. Nice that there was no bashing. Dave was very positive and handled himself very well.

    They all looked great and I couldn't believe how tall Wolfie now is.
    He could kick his dad's ass, the kid is about the same height as Alex now.

    Eddie looked great, healthy and happy. He did seem uncomfortable with the rehab questions, the guy really seems shy about his personal life and I think he was embarassed by the whole thing and that it got that far.

    Dave was just the same old Dave yet toned down just a fraction but still quick with the wit, he maybe be what rock and roll needs right now. Even for being a bunch of "old" guys now.

    Alex looked the same with a llittle longer hair in the back but shorter in the front. He didn't say alot but was quick to jump in as well as was Dave when Wolfie could have been a little uncomfortable.

    Wolfie was fairly poised IMO, he answered a couple of questions I think one was about what he listens to besides VH and he quickly said AC/DC then Eddie quickly said "I turned him on to them" (VH & AC/DC Summer '08 Tour anyone?)

    All in all it was a good 15 minute press conference which came away with more answers and more coherent than one from our president.

    Its a "new band" as Dave called it, and said something like "we are looking forward and not to the pasture"
    'Old Van Halen, when I was in it-classic Van Halen-makes you wanna drink, dance and screw, right? And the new Van Halen encourages you to drink milk, drive a Nissan and have a relationship.' - David Lee Roth.
