    22. How do you feel about the Van Halen reunion that is rumored to be going down, and if you could give any advice to Eddie Van Halen on reuniting with a singer, what would it be?

    If I could give any advice to Eddie Van Halen, I would tell him to make sure he finishes his chemo and take care of himself because if he doesn't he could be dead. It would be the saddest day in music for so long. I just want Eddie to be healthy, I don't care about him making another record. And the reunion thing, I now that it is a reality but I think that the state that Eddie's in, people don't even know about Eddie right now. He just has to make sure he's healthy. He's really sick and if he goes away it's going to be really fucked up. It'll fuck everybody up. Real bad timing for Eddie Van Halen to be sick. Everybody I know just wants him to be healthy and carry on with his life. Overall, that's the most important thing. Shit, he's the total package, the guy's got nothing to prove. If he doesn't play another note again, I don't care. But advice? Do what you did, if you can still do it.

    Thanks for posting that Jonathan. I hate to read that. YIKES ! Another reason for the possible hold up. Brad claims that Ed is okay, but, he is only saying what the boys tell him to say. I hope he is OKAY !!

    I hope it's not true. That would be the whole reason for the hold up. If it's true ED, my prayers are with you.

    Shit, if the holdup has something to do with Ed's help, aren't we all gonna feel like idiots. Especially the majority of the members of the PD. They were really quick to dump on VH. At least most of us here are still optimistic.

    Would Val be doing TV again if he were seriously ill?

    I seriously doubt it.

    From what I understand, Tracii Guns and Ed have been friends since the early days.

    The early days of what?

    If Ed does have cancer, which isn't beyond the realms of possibility given what happened last May, it doesn't mean he's dying. He could be seriously ill in the sense that he needs to be careful, have chemo, take it easy etc without being bedridden.

    That would go a long way to explaining everything including Dave not being pissed in his message, and the rumoured October release date seeming a long way off.

    I think this is really why things are taking so long. He doesn't have to be bed-ridden for things to be serious. Eddie probably is making damn sure that he's got this cancer thing whipped before he does anything else. This realy does explain Roth's upbeat attitude. . .if he sensed any bad-blood issues, he would have said as much in his statement (remember 1996). It also explains the "No News is Good News" mantra. When this is all over, we'll probaby hear about his sturggle and that as long as there was "No News" that it was "Good News" because too often with situations like this, the news can be very bad. As for Val doing TV and press, she's got a career, and with something like Cancer, it's important to continue with your life and learn to cope. Plus, like I said, Eddie more than likely isn't bedridden, but chemo takes it out of you and makes you weak before you get better. Let's all pray that he can rise above this and continue putting out the best music he possibly can. I don't hink Van Halen would leave their fans hanging like this unless there was a damn good reason, and this could be the reason. Keep your chins up.

    When did he take Wolfie to see Britney Spears? He did do that right? I don't know if he would've been able to do that if he was in too rough shape. Or maybe it got worse after that?

    God i hope thats not true...
    I would rather see a reunion between DLR and VH never take place then it be delayed because Eddie has cancer.
    This is absolutely the worst possible scenario.

    If Eddie is truly struggling with cancer, it makes no sense to me why Dave would release any statement at all, positive or negative. He knew that his statement was going to force Van Halen to gather the troops and make their own statement, so why force that issue if he knows Eddie has MUCH more important things on his plate?

    Does anyone know how old this interview is?

    Actually he took Wolfie to see N'Sync [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] I think that was back in the fall sometime.
