    Default Apparently Dave is the reason we are getting a live album instead of a studio album

    This from Rolling Stone getting a couple of questions in to Ed last night:

    When Rolling Stone asks Van Halen after the show about the band's current plans, the guitarist is ambivalent, noting that the group has no immediate plans to record or tour. "Iíd love to make a studio record," he says. "Depends on everybodyís timing. I donít know what Dave [Lee Roth] is up to now. I donít know if heís living in New York or Japan or wherever he is."

    Asked how Van Halen, the band, adjusted to three different lead vocalists through the years — original singer David Lee Roth, Sammy Hagar and Gary Cherone— the guitarist says it was more a case of the singers adjusting to the group: "You sing this, or you’re out of the band," Van Halen says, laughing.

    No shit. This sets us all the way back to square one unless he's just purposely trying to mislead the media. If not, consider this maybe the first step towards Van Halen: The Trio. Don't be surprised if Wolf's album turns into a Van Halen album with him on bass and vox. I would not be surprised.

    WTF?!?!?!!?


    How does he not even know where Dave is living?

    We heard from Jeff that Dave was in contact with the band on a weekly basis for the last year and a half or more. I can't see Dave being the obstacle to making more music considering all of his angst about time slipping away.

    So good to see Eddie in public and seemingly happy, but the bullshit surrounding these guys is just neverending.

    In fairness, right after he said that, he went out of his way to say he was kidding.

    My guess is that it's more a matter of Eddie just being completely frustrated with Dave and all of his movement from place to place, continent to continent, being difficult to tie down for an extended period of time. Good job by Rolling Stone getting a bit of actual real insight, even if it is still a little fuzzy.

    nothing is ever as it seems in the whacky world that is van halen.

    everyone who sits on their high horse saying how Dave and Ed are such good friends these days and this and that make me laugh. No one knows what the heck is really going on behind the curtains

    I'm sure some idiot (I'm not naming names) will take Ed's comments to mean that Mike is back in the band...

    I'm going to be even more cynical and suggest that there's really not any "band" to be a part of. They've made one album in eight years since the reunion and they apparently didn't work on it together much at all, there's been all of one or two pictures of them together in 8 years, they completely ignore each other's public events, Dave has made several very critical comments about everything from Ed to their scheduling to their manager, and now Eddie apparently doesn't even know where Dave is or what his plans are.

    I've enjoyed ADKOT and I'm sure I'll enjoy the live album and I'm happy they've toured some, but the whole thing just comes across like a huge illusion of a functioning band when it's really not. At least in my opinion.

    Absolutely true but it is interesting that, despite whatever frustration Eddie is feeling and his supposed interest in recording and touring, they are obviously standing by DLR as there appears to be no ultimatums or anything. It seems like it's Dave or bust at this point. Time will tell I suppose.

    There's always some truth in all humor.

    But this doesn't slight Dave much. It slights Sam and Gary. When you adjust to the change of three different singers, you really are just adjusting twice. From Dave to Sammy and from Dave/Sammy to Gary.

    Tho I guess you could argue that Dave 2007-present is being told what to sing, as the third adjustment.

    No one ever said they were such good friends. It's mostly been argued that they don't hate each other as much as portrayed by reading into statements like this.

    I'm not saying it was a clear reflection of who they are or reality, but did you watch the VH Interviews from two years ago?
