    I remember hearing Roth tried committing suicide by jumping out a window in the early '80s.

    I guess whoever said that didn't get his "bet with Al" joke on that TV interview.

    Given all of the animosity after Dave left the band in 1985, one might be inclined to believe that Al pushed him out that window ...

    When I moved to Victoria, BC in 81 I was told the band was banned from the city. Rumour was they destroyed a dressing room at the arena, and that Dave had uprooted a sapling at the Empress Hotel and carried it through the lobby up to their room...

    In the 90's sometime there was a newspaper article here in Australia that Eddie had been stung by a Stonefish on a Qld beach and was hospitalised. Stonefish is bad news, will usually kill you. When I told that story on the old VHML days Val persoanlly emailed me to tell me it was BS and they had never been to Aus yet.

    Probably the craziest story I've ever heard about Van Halen is that they had a chance to reunite with David Lee Roth in 1996, but instead decided to hire Gary Cherone. I know, I know. Insane ...

    The only part I don't believe is that they were banned.

    Default Craziest things you've heard or said about Van Halen?

    Once I heard pretty crazy story that these 60-something semi-retired dudes were planning everything. New tour and music w DLR. Bringing back Mike for a tour, remastering the Sam/Halen records, planning a VH box set AND Sam could be part of the plans too.

    Not such a crazy story but they then added Ed was going to go on tour and record an album with Tiffany.
    Brossies Boppers was the name of the music news programme.

    Say, I wonder if any Roth-only fans will say, "Was going to? They already were!"

    It gets weirder... Years later, when they actually did reunite with Dave, a key original member had been replaced by an adolescent who was unheard/unproven to the fans.

    That VH was Kiss without makeup, back in 78'. Doesnt make much sense, but I remember reading that back in the day. Maybe because of the Gene mention in the liner notes.
