    our local rock station, "qfm96"/wlvq fm, has always supported van halen/sammy/dave/solo.lots of airplay, promoting shows etc.

    me and some friends have been calling the dj's buggin' 'em about vanhalen rumors. the other night we were talking to one and bugged him about "serious juju" - he loves the track and he has always been and "dave's the best guy"so we talked about what van hagar stuff we did like, any way we asked him for anything he heard from warner bros- not just industry rumors.we tried to think of all the right questions.

    here is the short version:

    "...there will be a new van halen single this fall."

    longversion:

    us: 'what have you heard from warner bros?'
    dj: "warner is definately telling us that they want us to make room in the fall programming schedule for new van halen"

    so then he had to get back on air and said to call back later,

    us: "when you say "NEW" vanhalen what do you mean..?
    dj: "it's buggin' you ain't it??!"
    us: "yeah- i think ALL vh fans are ate-up about it..is this new vh song with dave or.."
    dj: "it's dave."
    us: "you are sure..?"
    dj: "dude-it is dave"
    us: "well let me ask you this- are they really gong to do it or is this just going to do a single for a repackage..?"
    dj: " i don't know about THAT- but i do know we have a single to be released later this fall. that's all that is for-sure"
    us: " well i'm geussing it will be a few new tracks for a greatest hits2 or that box-set we heard about.."
    dj: " they haven't said anything about a box-set , but i've heard that too. they ARE asking us to play a lot of the old stuff to promote the remasters."

    ------then we talked about how lame it is that there are no liner notes or bonus tracks. we also talked about the abundance of pure-bs rumors

    dj:" how are the remasters?"
    us: " i only have fair warning- on my stereo i can only hear a little difference- i think it is an improvement..i will wait and see about this box-set before i buy more"
    dj:" me too."
    us; " my theory- and i do hope i'm wrong- is that we will get the new single, buy the box-set and then get singer four."
    dj: "possible.. i stopped trying to figure them out in '85. "

    ----------------then he did delve a bit into hearsay-


    us: " well i am sure you've heard that sammy said dave was out again-maybe he was talking to mike or tommy nast."

    dj: "yeah- i don't know about that. i have a close friend who works for "K-ROCK" and they were promoting some dave shows- were you at the dave- show at "al rossa villa" in cloumbus?"
    us;" yeah- we were in the front row" ( true my brother yelled at him for wearing a steelers shirt-anyway..)
    us: " well my friend at k-rock- he is totally on the level i swear- he said that when they were working with dave he mentioned ,when they asked, that he and ed were again on speaking terms and would talk on the phone a couple times a week,"
    us: " not to sound like a pessimist- just trying to cover every angle- itisn't JUST a matter of getting along- they have to work together, when they did "me wise magic" dave hated what ed was palying and ed didn't like dave's voice.
    dj:" me wise magic fuckin' rocks!!But yeah i know what you mean."
    us : "well i hope they can get an understanding long enough.."

    dj:" i think ed's cancer scare- which i don't believe is as simple as we've heard."
    us:" i agree"
    dj:" i think it scared these guys enough to reconsider things."
    us: " do you think if it doesn't last we'll get sammy or number four?"
    dj: " if they want to go out on top they'll get it together."

    that was pretty much all of it- he said they(warner bros.) don't pass along a lot of info because he is a fanboy and will blab it all- i said that maybe they don't say a lot becuase they are still haggling with eddie, which he thought was likely as well.

    he also said we should call again and check back on what the warner representative tells the station manager-WICH WE WILL!!- and that the new sammy album is quite good.

    so we are sure that we have a new release from van halen this fall-though that could change if anything happens to the band-

    as far as tours/box-sets/new albus go, we will have to wait and see.

    If there's a box set available by Christmas, I'm going to be mugging Santa Claus before he even gets out of the chimney.

    That would probably lend a little credence to The Keepers claim that we will hear new Dave, brand spanking new Dave, so new it ain't even finished yet Dave this fall in "Rothtober". They have promised this and really laid it out on the line like they never have before. Take it as you will.

    Hell yeah! The tour is what it's all about. If there is any way at all possible I plan on being at the opening show if its within 1000 miles from me. And several more. Something like this only comes along every 17-18 years.

    THAT could be a true statement. I already told my buddies to get ready for a couple road trips next year to see the boys. Once in a lifetime shit goin' on here.
