    Default "Van Halen: WTF?"

    Does anybody have the new issue of Classic Rock yet? There's a scan of the Rush article online but not the whole mag and I noticed on the cover in the lower right corner it says "Van Halen: WTF?" and I was curious. Probably just speculating about when they'll tour again but I'd still like to see it.

    I don't know how to post a picture but here's the cover if someone else wants to:

    Almost seems like something that coulda been photoshopped in there, because all of those statements would've been relevant in 2002.

    2002: Van Halen has done literally nothing for 4 years.
    2002: Queensryche sucks.
    2002: Townshend gets accused of having child porn.

    Not much happening on the classic rock fronts anymore these days. I wouldn't doubt this is real.

    Well, it could be like "how could a band be away for this long and put out an album that great?" kind of WTF. Or it could be talking about how they cancelled dates in Australia, Japan, and the US. Who knows...
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    I'm sure it must have to do with the cancellation of the tour and no official announcements since. From what I remember they were very positive about ADKOT but that Rush cover above is only one of 5 for this month. That's why there's a question mark at the end of "Band of the Year?" They picked 5 bands for the different covers and each one has that tag on it: Rush, Led Zeppelin, Black Country Communion, The Rolling Stones, and Rival Sons. You'd think Van Halen would have been one of them if the "WTF?" was about how shockingly great they were this year.

    It must be about the sudden stoppage of the momentum they had from February through the summer. It's probably nothing we don't already know but given that there's not much else going on I'd like to read it.

    WTF=Worlds Top Fans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    Ah screw them. We all know the dates got cancelled because of Ed's health. If they can't understand that then I pity them.

    I agree, that seems obvious to us. But I doubt it's the people at the magazine themselves going "WTF?", they probably just assume that a lot of the more casual fans are wondering "WTF?" and that's what the update is about. In other words, it's probably more of an explanation than it is a question. And remember, this is a British magazine and I'd assume VH doesn't get near the coverage in Europe as in the U.S. There probably are a lot of fans who don't hang out on fan sites like us that are wondering why they seemed to simply vanish when things were going so well.

    I love how people have no idea what it actually refers to, yet they are already getting defensive.

    Indeed.

    Maybe it's a new Van Halen song. Dave's all hip singing about Facebook pages and whatnot, some slang wouldn't hurt.
