    Default I need some info on Van Halen...please.

    First of all I just wanna say that it's a major thrill to see Van Halen together again with David Lee Roth on vocals and with Wolfgang on bass.The show in Cleveland was a dream come true and I hope that they make their way back to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame city really soon.

    I do have a couple questions that I haven't had any luck getting answers from. Who exactly had the idea to get VH and DLR together again? Also,I've heard Sammy and Michael's take on VH's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction,but I've heard absolutely nothing from Eddie,Alex,or Dave on the subject. How do they feel about the honor? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help.

    Good luck getting answers....VH doesnt give up any info and you'll be waiting a long time to hear their persepcitve.

    The reason they got back together is a mystery but most here feel it was Wolfie who got Eddie to make a move in the right direction.

    The reason is pretty clear. At this point, if VH wanted to make any money and have a shred of relevancy, the only choice was to reunite with Dave. It was an inevitabilty. Dave was pretty vocal about being ready to do it, so it all boiled down to Ed and Al just finally giving the go ahead.

    Van Halen is a mystery wrapped in a riddle inside an enigma.

    It was a marketing decision strictly all the way....Dave wouldn't be back here if Mikey was still a member of the band...that's what I believe anyways....

    ...buried deep in a steaming pile of fresh bullshit.
    We train dogs for cattle and sheep herding. They're very different. Sheep are a lot like supermodels - they bunch together, they rattle very easily. Cattle are like drunks at a hockey game - two will want to fight: "Who are you and what's with your badge?"

    Two of them will be like: "Leave them alone, let's go see the game." Another one is lost: "Where'd you guys go?" The dog has to deal with all of that. You work them off a whistle. It's the original video game.

    Van Halen reminded us last night of why we loved them in the first place. They helped us to get past all the bullshit around us and remind us to have a little fucking fun in the midst of it all. - Reckless Fable

    Let's not get ahead of ourselves... Eddie & Al weren't doin too hot on their own either... they need DLR as much as he needs them.

    I'm sure all of Sam Halen's fans would disagree with that.

    Because Ed, Al and Dave made up and are buds again. It's pretty simple when it comes to music.

    Well your welcome and let me shed some light.
    First off let me clear it up for you as I do have the answers.
    It was my idea, yes my idea. I wrote a letter to EVH and DLR and asked them to get thier shit together. It was only after this letter that both sides agreed to make it work.
    As for the Hall of Fame. The real VH would request that they totally erase the abortion that happened this year with the award so that the real VH can accept the award in a more appropriate manner by people whos real name ends with, Van Halen.
    In the meantime the band has expressed its opinion without actually commenting by having 4 cases of Official Hall of Fame Award Toilet Paper printed for thier tour buses.
    It is currently in use.

    That should be the final word on this thread as all questions have been addressed in detail.
    While I cannot confirm my sources on the toilet paper issue, I can tell you In a high level management position for Charman Inc.
