    LD, you guys say that every 2-3 years...and then we say Dave is in the band...and then you guys say how do you know....then we quote Dave saying they're on the James Bond movie schedule...and then VAN HALEN resurfaces.

    Then you guys, after the tour, repeat it again. Every three years.

    I say what I'm saying now every few years.

    It's a pattern.
    Think back.

    True, but the time gap gets longer each time. At some point the gap is going to be permanent.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Van Halen projects are a bit like James Bond movies. They come around about once every three-and-a-half years.

    Any sooner and it’s like, 'Weren’t you just here?' It’s like that third Johnny Depp pirate movie (Pirates Of The Caribbean). Weren’t you guys just here?

    Leave before the sun sets, quit just before the party begins to disintegrate, don’t be the first one back in next week. We’ve been around for so long that that is a deft kind of a tactic.

    James, I like your optimism, I'm optimistic too when it comes to many things in life. Van Halen is not one of them, though. I'm not yet at that level, I haven't meditated enough. Hopefully, one day I will reach your level of wisdom.

    I like your Bond analogy. But when it comes to long term professionalism and organization, my money is on the Broccoli family rather than the Van Halen family.

    I'll try to tick off some of the more silly shit that has been said in the multiple threads on this.

    Dave gets paid for these appearances - uh WTF no in the 24 years I have knowledge of Dave has never ever received compensation for any charity work or appearances, to be honest I would be stunned if anyone under the VH tribe ever has - this is one of those comments that says more about the person making it


    His hair - it is indeed cut and bleached, I know a shock a front man changes his hair. I assume it will be back to his usual in 2019.


    His clothes - did he not get busted on for 2 years for not wearing a different suit by the same people ripping on a new one now? WTF it was a black tie event he wore a black suit seriously get over it


    Sam this and that - whether you hate Dave or love him the guy who founded and named it is going be the front man who eventually pulls the curtain on VH a last time so everyone get over it. Ripping each other or the other guy does not elevate yourself or your guy and no because Sam does not own a time machine it is not a slag or makes what he did in the band less relevant



    He looks pale and sick - he is the healthiest he has been since 2010 but yes he is lacking his usual tan of late

    His voice OMG - his voice is actually stronger now than it was in 2017, his vocals were a stronger version of what they were in the end of 2015. He was sloppy a bit as it was a loose charity event and yes still missed that middle gear and went high. That said his control needs to improve and as FALCO posted yes why he does not put more reverb on his mic is indeed a mystery as it would help him.


    His style, totally different guy - yes he is not a pissed off 20 something anymore, he is a happy guy in his 60s at a charity event, not it is not opening night of the Fair Warning tour check your expectations


    New talks - yes but as always with Van Halen what comes to fruition and what is talked about often have a gap but no not dead yet so put the shovel away

    A ton of great stuff in that post but what stood out to me was: " - he is the healthiest he has been since 2010 "

    Great to hear. Whatever was trying to kick his ass had no idea it was fucking with David Lee Roth.

    I sense an authoritative tone in your post... there's been no discussion of David Lee Roth's health other than fans questioning various public appearances dressed for winter during summer heat and whatever the hell was going on with Dave and blowers during live performances.

    Just curious... what alleged health issue are you specifically referring to that has affected Dave since 2010..?
