    Interview with Eddie. Check out # 5. I just don't get this guy. He has absolutely no clue what the fans want.

    I can't remember which comedian said it, about the current state of Van Halen, but he said right now, Van Halen is like a really hot playboy playmate with a prosthetic leg.

    BRING BACK THE CLASSIC LINEUP!

    I think he believes that. Whatever. "The band people know" certainly never included Wolfgang. Obviously Wolf is why dad is still doing this but notwithstanding that.

    5. He Doesn't Remember His Own Band's Lyrics
    Aside from not being able to read music, Eddie admits he's also forgotten many of the lyrics to Van Halen's songs. And though he barely has a relationship with David Lee Roth, he soldiers on for the fans: "I think it's now built into people's DNA, that it just won't be Van Halen if it's not Roth's voice," he explains. "You make music for people. Otherwise, just play in your closet. And how do you reach the most people? By giving them the band that they know. To do it any other way would be selfish.”

    Disgusting...

    It's all about context.
    'Old Van Halen, when I was in it-classic Van Halen-makes you wanna drink, dance and screw, right? And the new Van Halen encourages you to drink milk, drive a Nissan and have a relationship.' - David Lee Roth.

    Cool pics funny the way his jacket collar is up kinda reminds me of Fonzie.

    Looking forward to the full interview sounds like another good one a little more candid than previous years.

    "And he definitely didn't bond with former Van Halen singer Gary Cherone over clothing choices: "We were getting ready to go on tour, and all of a sudden I see this John Travolta outfit -- these big lapels and a crazy jacket. He's like, 'This is my stage outfit.' That's when I realized it wasn't going to work."

    So he knew that Van Halen with Cherone wasn't going to work before he had even played one show with the guy because of his stage wardrobe?

    His comment about Gary Cherone's stage attire is hilarious.

    As for the rest, I don't think he gives a flying fuck who is singing anymore. He enjoys going out and playing with his son, then its on to the next city. He's done enough in my book, so I don't care. He is living the American Dream. Take your victory laps, Eddie.

    Whatever. I can't believe how far this band has fallen. They're terrible now. I can't believe I'm saying that. Lol. The new live album sucks. Any boot from the old days sounds better than that thing on so many levels. Dave can't sing for shit, Eddie can't solo like he used to live, Mike ain't there. Still love Alex though.

    This is such a load of bullshit. Yeah, Dave has some rough spots - just like anyone his age would. I think Ed's playing is better than it's been since 1998.

    But hey, whatever. If they're so bad then why are you even wasting your time on it?

    That was a major shot fired at Sam.

    Stop drinking Dave's Kool-Aid, Ed.

    Some rough spots??? lolololol You obviously haven't listened to Tokyo Dome, the countless boots from their last tour,or the tour before that.
    Im a fan of the early years, but still check out the current stuff from time to time, that's why i waste my time...lol

    I actually own it and listen to it pretty much daily.

    Yep, if you have an axe to grind you'll exaggerate and tell people that every song sounds like Panama. An objective observer knows better. 85 to 90 percent of the vocals are good and Ed's playing is fantastic.

    It is amusing how some alleged "fans" just love to rip these guys at every opportunity.

    I'm not going to engage in this further as it's a waste of my time.

    Dave sounds like complete crap live. End of story. Not sure what the heck you're talking about with the Panama reference. Who says every song sounds like Panama? That's the first I've heard of it.
