    the road test show in philly was phenomenal. one thing that will never leave me is when they were on the official tour in new york city, during one of the songs, a guy took off his prosthetic leg and started swaying it back and forth. a true concert first for me seeing that.

    Ha! That is a concert first!

    Those road test pre-tour runs really were the best CF ever was live, IMO. Caught the 2011 road test run with Aronoff at the Avalon in Weho, was a very intense gig, Satch was beyond belief. I saw CF over a half dozen times, and the LA road test shows in 09 and 11, plus the reunion Tahoe show in 16, were the best Iíd seen them.

    The recommendations I got for 'Marching to Mars were certainly on point!
    This cd is pretty rocking. On my second listen, and really digging it. I can't believe I didn't buy this stuff way back in the day.

    It really is. I believe Sam doesn't want to commit to it because of Chad not being able to commit to it 100%. Short of getting Frusciante back in the Peppers, I'd rather see Chad in the Foot now.

    Agreed. I do not think the paycheck will convince Smith to leave the peppers unfortunately.

    But in recent years, I got the feeling itís less about Chadís commitments and more about Joe only wanting to play CF songs, an occasional Sam solo track, but no VH songs.

    Has Sam changed his stance on that? I'm pretty sure I read(back in the beginning), that Sam wanted CF to stand on their own.

    I think in interviews he generally accepts that CF isn't going to play Van Halen but since Sam really wants to play those songs in concert........hello Circle, goodbye CF.

    I'm confused.

    So Sam wants to play them now and Joe doesn't?

    Since when? Am I wrong in my assertion that Sam said no VH when they first started out?

    In a recent interview, he implied he had been frustrated with CFís restrictiveness in only playing CF tunes in the set, and vaunted the Circle for playing anything from his career, including CF (to be accurate they usually play only one CF song if they play CF at all and itís usually Bigfoot). Maybe he was just hyping the Ďversatilityí of the Circle for the pending tour, but it sounded like he was implying that Joe didnít want to play any EVH songs while playing a CF proper gig, and Iíve heard that as well. Though i believe heís covered some evh at one offs like the Fillmore acoustic charity gig and such.

    Itíd be a shame to not fire up CF again only for that reason. Redheads do not care what CF plays. I never once saw a less than packed venue for them and nobody was crying about the lack of VH. Iím there to see half of VH play with Joe, but I donít need to see them play VH songs.

    The CF tracks hold up nicely live...better than studio, something they have in common with VH.

    I do remember him saying The Circle plays tunes from his whole career, I just don't recall reading where he says anything about Joe(specifically) not wanting to play VH tunes.

    If they did tour again, I don't see the point in adding that scrutiny now.

    He didnít say Joe specifically, but I doubt itís Chad, and itís def not Mike lol.

    I have heard from a number of industry folks that Joe tries not to showcase comparisons to his contemporaries, of which Eddie is one of course.

    I donít think he wants comparisons of how he plays EVH songs to EVH himself.

    Yeah, not sure what he has on his plate after The Circle tour is over, but he doesn't seem to want to sit still too long, even with saying he does, and all the miles on his body.

    Next year may bring a surprise, who knows.

    Would love another CF tour. No brainer. An album would be equally welcome.
