    There wasn't one in 2004. The PR for the whole tour was piss poor. They only did one interview and that was all four of them on a national radio broadcast that was taped. Dave said this time it's not just a one shot deal. There is talk of the future. In 2004, all they would commit to was doing 80 shows. I could tell right then and there it was going to be one and done.

    I remember a little differently, Jeff, but I might be mistaken.

    Didn't they talk about the three songs and tour as the tip of the iceberg, or something? Or, it's only an ice cube compared to the ice berg they have in store? Something stupid like that.

    This is one of a handful of interviews given by Alex Van Halen and Sam Hagar for the 2004 tour/BOBW package.

    my god. everyone associated with this band outside of cherone and anthony positively exude bullshit from all orifices and their pores.

    That CNN interview was pretty random and conducted on the 3rd leg of the tour. The press conference yesterday already has done more good than that canned radio interview did (the only thing they did pre-tour) in 2004
    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.

    No, that is when CNN chose to run the interview, not when it was conducted. It is indeed the CNN announcer making reference to the 3rd leg of the tour, not Van Halen or Hagar. All "promotion" duties were set up and executed before the tour kicked off. These included a filmed "rehearsal", (footage of which appeared on "The TV Guide" channel) and some "taped interviews for radio stations.

    Eddie said in guitar world that it was the tip of the iceberg, that having Mike and Sammy back in his life was huge.

    Don't forget that Dave is his "new brother".

    It will be atleast interesting to see how this all shakes out.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Preferred pronouns: he/him/his

    Yup, definitely the kiss of death. I wish he would simply refer to folk as his "current" brother or soul-mate.

    It was funny hearing Alex says he feels sorry for Sammy going out on tour in 2002 with roth.....

    My question is does Alex feel sorry for Alex in 2007??

    Its a soap opera nothing more nothing less. Days of Van Halen. You know, I seem to remember the comment of, The Beatles will never get back together and David Lee Roth will never sing for Van Halen again. Its my honest opinion that since the 2004 reunion with Sammy only really created a small buzz, that their next step despite anything said was to get Roth. If this sucks, then it would be interesting to see the next step.

    That footage was from the second night in LA, that audio matches the audience recording to a T.
