    Default Pete Angelus/DLR falling out

    I read in the book Access all Areas that Angelus severed ties with DLR because he hated the YFLM album. Does anyone have any more information than that? Dave didn't even mention him in his book, so it would seem there is some bad blood between them. Did they ever reconcile?

    My very general understanding is that when DLR's star began to falter, he began blaming everyone around him, and most of the people that stood by him after the split with VH either went back to working with VH or found other avenues of work.

    Just a general concensus from multiple reads over the years. I could be 100% wrong.
    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!

    Maybe a Black Crows/David Lee Roth tour would have fared better than DLR with Cinderella.

    I can address this subject for you. I used to work for Angelus Entertainment at the time that Pete parted ways with Dave. Pete brought his staff into his office and was very sincere in explaining his decision to resign from managing DLR. It had nothing at all to do with Pete's like or dislike of DLR's "A Little Ain't Enough" as is suggested in one of the posts.
    Pete explained to us that he did not feel he could stand by DLR's increasingly erratic behavior and dubious decisions. Dave had demanded the firing of both Steve Vai and Billy Sheehan and Pete was in compete disagreement. Dave also had some run ins with some of his crew (throwing mic stands at them) that Pete felt was completely inappropriate and very disrespectful to the people who were working hard on DLR's behalf.
    We understood because by 1989, DLR was pretty rude to most of us who worked for Angelus Entertainment.
    There was one night where Pete was rehearsing The Black Crowes at SIR in Hollywood for their American Recordings showcase. DLR showed up, uninvited and unannounced, and in a rage was yelling at the band that he was their manager too. When Pete arrived, he had to remove Dave from their rehearsal room. It was a really unpleasant scene that we would later hear The Crowes talk about when they came to the office. That was followed by a day when Pete was on the set with The Black Crowes directing their first video and Dave showed up again, uninvited, and started saying he was the video director too. Pete had to talk him down and get him off the set. I was there to witness that insanity, it wasn't pretty and Dave really embarrassed himself.
    A week later, Pete resigned as Dave's manager.
    DLR didn't mention him in his book because 1) he took all the credit for so many of the ideas Pete had and video's Pete directed and 2) he was upset with Pete for resigning.
    It was inaccurate for someone to suggest that Dave felt that Pete was a fair weather friend.
    Dave knew exactly how creative and loyal Pete was to his artist's and he was upset when Pete called him out on his behavior and moved in another direction.
    We all saw what Pete went through with Dave and we were surprised that he tried to keep things moving forward for as long as he did considering how crazy Dave was getting.
    DLR just acted like a little child when he omitted Pete from his book but everyone who played or worked with DLR, everyone at the record label, publicity company and everyone who did any work for DLR knew of Pete's involvement and contributions.

    Sounds like the height of his cocaine usage. Drugs are bad, kids.

    Steve Marshall, thanks for the information. This was new information from a source close to the action - very valuable. This is the kind of info that would be key to a sequel to "Van Halen:Rising." "Van Halen: Ascending" or Van Halen: Dominating" ?

    Yeah, that was very interesting. Thanks for posting, man.

    But I thought EVH was deemed the "bad guy" in '96 and Dave and Sammy got their pardons?

    Anyways, love Pete Picasso. Seems like such a cool dude.

    The "truth" usually "lies" somewhere in the middle ...
