    If I'm not mistaken it's Eddie who says "I told you I was coming back" Then Dave responds "Say you missed me. Say it like you mean it" And Eddie responds witha guitar solo.

    Are you sure? Because it sure sounds like Eddie's voice that says I told you I was coming back.

    If it was Eddie, he'd have said "It could be that I said something cryptic once that may have led you to believe there was the possibility that I might return, in some form, with music you have not heard before. But the rumors are rumors and it's true that there will always be rumors."
    I'm glad they decided to let Dave say it instead. Because he's been saying for years he'd be back.

    The last 2 reunions, both Sammy and Dave wrote songs about being back in the band. I'm not a big fan of that concept because it's kind of like seeing the wizard behind the curtain. I'd rather keep the illusion that Van Halen is an ass-kicking entity instead of a collection of volatile people with a history of not getting along that may explode with disastrous results at any time. The first time I heard the song, I cringed when Dave started talking because all I could think about were the VMAs in '96.

    But the song still kicks ass!

    Some of us didn't necessarily want Roth back in VH during the time he was out. Particularly when he was doing YFLM - you couldnt imagine him doing any better than Sam was doing, IMO - at least by listening to his solo stuff.
