    Default Don Jamison, Jim Florentine Discuss a little VH

    Nothing new or earth shattering here, just small conversation. I know some of you guys hate morning radio; that's not why I posted this, just for the two Metal Show guys talking some VH.

    That's kinda funny...we were just talking about "gay lead singers" in another thread. Rumors...gotta love 'em. Both Dave and Paul Stanley are straight from everything I've heard though. I have a friend who met Stanley in person and he told me he was surprised at how "straight" he actually is in person. Stage persona probably doesn't mean much.

    I guess I was just totally out of the loop out the Paul Stanley rumor. As I said on the other thread, I don't care about who is or isn't gay anyway, but I just had no idea anyone even thought Stanley might be gay until very, very recently. Granted, I'm only a slightly more than casual Kiss fan so I don't follow along too closely.

    Mostly I'm just amazed by how quickly some rumors get started and how hard they are to dispel, even if there's nothing to them. Maybe only serious Rush fans would remember this but starting with the Presto tour in 1989 and continuing through the Roll the Bones tour in 1991 Neil Peart started wearing a bandana on his head simply to keep the sweat out of his eyes (the same reason you always see him with an African style hat on stage the last 20 years). But even in those pre-internet days the rumors spread like crazy that he was dying of cancer and going through chemotherapy. The rumor became so prevalent that even as private as he is he had to publicly announce that it was complete nonsense.

    People are just nuts.

    I don't think I've ever heard the Alex being the Mike hater rumor or the Mike not going to their father's funeral rumor. No one here's ever talked about that as far as I know, so where the hell else they getting these rumors from (haha)? They just making this shit up on the spot?

    And Florentine is usually pretty accurate, but he was a little off with the funeral thing being in '02-'03 as Jan died before OU812 came out. Obviously must have meant their mother. Didn't she pass in '05? Well they wanted Mike out before TBOBW, so that's irrelevant.

    It must be their mom's funeral. Their dad passed in 1988 I believe.

    I think it was a mind block from Florentine to say that it was the Dads funeral. There was a rumor that MA was shunned by the VH bros because he didn't show for their Mothers funeral. Plus, guys, there are a ton of rumors that MA was to be replaced even earlier. Those are all just unspoken from the band rumors. MA said that he learned he was out of VH when Wolfgang was the new bass player. It's actually pretty simple to understand. Rumors are rumors and Wolfie is in VH. Whether or not we all agree about that, it's only a band that has the ability to still play awesome music (past and present). For the record, I wish MA was still there playing bass and performing live with VH.
    Just go for it!

    You know, that does ring a bell somewhat, but it was always the "cheating on them" with Sammy for the most part you hear.

    Correct. On OU812 they dedicated that album to Jan in the liner notes. Eugenia Van Halen died in 2005 at age 89.
