    Los Angeles CA: Following the public lunacy and recent mixed messages coming from both Edward Van Halen and his wife, insiders are saying that a major shakedown may have already occurred concerning the actual lineup of VAN HALEN, the rock band that has faded from public view and consciousness.

    Yes, according to two well placed industry icons, including Don Was, the well known and liked producer, Edward Van Halen will most likely never appear or record again in the current Van Halen outfit. Both Alex and Michael have stepped around EVH and are now finalising details for a reunion tour and EP with David Lee Roth. Steve Vai has been approached to step in for EVH as well as the maligned Buckethead of recent GnR fame. All depends on availability of either guitarist and it is known that both have current commitments but according to our sources, these are the only two guitarists that the three remaining members could agree on. As for EVH, the truth appears to lie in his public comments and pictures. Edward is seriously ill and has returned to alcohol as a numbing agent for the much more invasive cancer he has than was previously acknowledged.

    Now I know this post will most likely go over like a led balloon but I want to ensure everyone out there that I only wish EVH the best and am simply reporting the truth.

    Best regards,

    No way Alex goes on with Van Halen without Eddie!

    Though Vai is great (I've never heard Buckethead), where is the interest for Van Halen without Eddie? In my opinion, there isn't any.

    Glenn, I have to admit I found it hard to believe but apparently the guys feel and their advisors, that an audience is out there. It has simply been too long for many fans to wait.

    It's no reunion tour if it's not the original lineup.
    I'm one of those crazies on your block.

    It's been debated around these parts before about is it VH without Dave, is it VH with Sammy, is it VH with Gary?

    Forget all that, it isn't VH without Eddie!!

    VH would truly be a joke with this move. I'll believe you heard this DD, but I don't believe it will happen.

    yeah, i don't want to shoot the messenger, but that's utter crap! That's insane. IMO, that would do worse than a 4th singer.

    But, I don't think it's asking too much to ask the "messenger" to substantiate that crap.

    Man, who the heck knows at this point...

    Though this reminds me of those rumor posts we used to get here a while back by someone who posted under Steely Dan tune names...Midnight Cruiser, Kid Charlemagne, etc. Their tune Cousin Dupree would work for this one.

    But like I said...in the VH world...who in the heck knows...and some of us are to the point of who the heck cares.

    Fans waiting for what? DLR? Fuck that shit. Fans want DLR, Ed, Al, and Mike. VH!

    Steve Vai, get the fuck outta here.

    The Chicago White Sox (1901-present) - The Original SOX - Proof

    The Boston Americans (1901)
    The Boston Somersets (1902)
    The Boston Pilgrims (1903-1906)
    The Boston Red Sox (1907-present) - Proof

    The Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets whatever you want to call them, have NEVER displayed "SOX" anywhere on their caps, jerseys, or merchandise, therefore they shouldn't be referred to as such. However, the White Sox have used "SOX" since 1912.

    The SOX are in Chicago...we just allow the Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets to use the name.
