    Default Is there something up with Dave?

    To start -- I'm NOT talking about his voice. Plenty of threads on that. This is about his supercharged personality.

    I get it -- Dave's happy. He's back in the band he feels he belongs, back to being somewhat relevant again. It feels like 1984 for him, when he was on top of the world. He's all smiles. But isn't he also 60? Don't people slow down and not suddenly speed up?

    That's what I thought I saw in 07-08 -- a humbled, grounded Dave that was on his game. Yes, he was still Dave and had his blowers and forgetting lyrics schtick, and had his goofy smile and old man dance moves, and the voice was not the same... but it was just a 54 year old Dave.

    Now? His body looks thinner. His smiles are becoming more intense. I honestly can't imagine this Dave sitting still for 10 minutes to interview the brothers as he did for ADKOT videos. Is it just me? Am I reading too many of ECs posts? Does anyone else think something is different about Dave in the past year or so? Is he compensating for aging 6 years? Drugs? Disease? Sudden realization that he's officially back in VH?

    And again, I'm not talking about his voice or decisions to sing differently, though you can definitely add that to the discussion, as it seems related.

    I found all the new ink a little strange. I'm not anti ink, as I have a couple myself. I know he has always been into the Japanese culture, so maybe it's something he had always planned on doing.

    I didn't really think anything of his behavior on Kimmel other than it seemed like he was in a good mood. I mean, I don't expect him to just stand there and do nothing. He's Dave. Heh.

    He was pretty apologetic to the band and the crowd about whacking his nose... "sorry guys..."

    He's on his best behavior it seems. He's just happy as hell to be with the band. A little humility goes a long way.

    He seemed fine and very lucid on Kimmel. From the apology and how to handle it, he was totally fine.

    I believe he is eccentric as hell. Will only get worse.

    I watched the nose incident from a different angle in the audience and it really showed Eddie's expression of concern when he finally realized what was going on and saw Dave's nose. I think Dave has some good family genes with Uncle Manny living into his 90's.

    I hope nothing is wrong, it seems like Dave being Dave to me.
    I have held my tongue for awhile, however, I feel compelled to say something about the word schtick. It is shtick, NO C. Both are viable words, however, with the c means a little piece, without means the act.

    Dave is one of a kind. A true character. Fucking weirdo.

    Classy. This is the kind of horseshit we were just talking about.

    "But being number one doesn’t really mean jack fuck all. We sold twice as many records as other records that year (1984) that landed in the Number One position." ~Eddie Van Halen

    Hey , at least I didn't call him fat, or has no charisma, or his era sucks. or has a generic voice. You know, like all the classy people around here say about sammy
