    Default Gary Dell'Abate Says Dave Fired Mgr, Turned Down Rolling Stone Cover

    I've been meaning to post this for a few days and did a search and couldn't find this mentioned anywhere here at the links.

    I was listening to Howard Stern this week when Gary Dell'Abate (a.k.a Fa Fa Fooey Bababooey) said that they tried getting Van Halen on the show but all members turned down the offer. Booey added that he heard Dave fired his manager recently and even turned down a chance to be on the cover of Rolling Stone.

    I'll believe it when I hear it from a bit more reliable source.

    The Sass Jordan version of Van Halen was the best...

    Has any artist ever turned down a RS cover? Highly doubt that one. Not doing a 'dig up the dirt' Stern interview is believable, however.

    Gary and the Howard Stern show are very reliable sources. Gary deals with all the talent and he knows his shit.

    If Gary said it...I tend to believe it.

    id be willing to bet that the band turned down Rolling stone...NO so much as DLR himself...I think he's really into the whole band thing mantra now... knows this is a good thing and doesnt want to mess it by just "himself" on the Cover of RS...just a thought

    Frank Zappa turned down Rolling Stone cover back in the early 80's.

    No way Dave was offered a RS cover without the band. This is 2012 not 1984

    The band may have turned down RS.

    The band may have turned down RS.
    I remember thinking that maybe he meant the band as a whole turned it down. If it was, in fact, just Dave then I'm guessing Dave knew better than to go down that road and fuck things up.

    Yeah and the Howard Stern show is in good with Eddie and Dave, so I don't doubt Gary tried to get them. He does book the talent, so I don't doubt he heard some inside scoop from VH's people or people connected in some way when he tried to book them.


    I heard when he said this on the air, they didn't make a big deal about it, he just mentioned it in passing if I remember correctly. Howard has been very complimentary with the new record especially Tattoo.

    I don't believe it but even it was true the guy has the right to do whatever he wants.
    Janie Liszewski did the IMPOSSIBLE she helped Eddie Van Halen get better. Deal with it.

    The day is dunzo lets have some funzo- DLR AS IS

    Somedays you're the dog Somedays you're the hydrant- DLR Bullethead

    It's not who you squeeze but who returns to squeeze you, no doubt, love em all I says let cupid sort em out!
