    What I'm saying is eventually the rumors that he is sick are going to either have to be confirmed or denied. And a no comment is as good as a confirmation.

    I know I have zero control over it, but I would suggest we all just take a moment and sort of not turn this into a 45 page thread theorizing about Ed's health. Yeah he's Eddie Van Halen and all, but he's also someone's father, someone's husband, someone's brother, etc...

    They know how to reach us if it's anything they want to disclose...

    That's all I'll say about it. ~Peace~

    The one thing that seems bizarre about DLR’s statement is that would you really go through a residency playing the VH catalog if the founder member was that ill—if he is even ill at all? Personally, I don’t know other than what has been speculated. Maybe it’s more of a decision not to play with DLR picking up the VH reigns? If that’s the case, I’m fine with it.

    "He won't be rising to meet the bell this time." Makes me think of a Tyler Childers song: "Out on a Drunk."

    Amazing Dave says, "I hear all the same rumors you do." Why do I think Dave only knows about as much about Van Halen as we do?

    It was nice to hear Dave being normal, though! Sounded a lot more like the guy I idolized at 14.

    "When you're home, who are your famous neighbors?" What a fucking stupid question! "Do you remember your first beer?" I would expect a high school newspaper to have better questions!

    I agree 100 percent EJC.

    I've defended Ed's and VHs radio silence plenty on here.

    This is one area where refusing to give any sort of update to your fan base becomes problematic because it sets up a breeding ground for all sorts of speculation.

    To me the biggest question isn't really Ed's health, it's why would he, Al, and Wolf not go with Dave and play Vegas if Dave is doing an all VH set? Just seems odd to me. Especially when it is just a limited number of shows.

    We had Van Halen frontman, David Lee Roth on the show today (9/12/19).

    During the conversation (as Dave is wont to do), he proclaimed, “I’m the face of Van Halen from this point on…most likely.”

    It was what he said immediately *after* that is probably going to garner a ton of attention. There’s been a *lot* of speculation as to why Van Halen didn’t reunite & tour with Michael Anthony as had been originally planned for this year. Turns out it wasn’t why you think…

    I believe we may have inadvertently uncovered confirmation of a rumor that had been bubbling for a while now: Edward Van Halen is *very* sick. Dave was fairly coy overall, but he’s not stupid. In his own way, I think he’s preparing us.

    As I said in the closed thread, if Ed or Alex is sick, let Janie or whoever cue us in on it. We don’t need to let a rumor run wild and paint a picture that is wrong. Dave has his own language and no translator so let’s just see what’s what. Janie or someone knows how to get a hold of Brett should something public need to be said.

    Jeff’s VHND DLR interview seemed a lot less ominous:

    And now, the Van Halen question. I know that they’re on their regularly scheduled hiatus…

    Four summers have gone by. And for a singer, that’s paralyzing. Like a boxer, or a tap dancer, I am dependent upon my whole rig. My whole body. Perhaps playing a guitar, or piano, for example, with your hands, is a bit more forgiving over the years. If you come watch me now, I’m 65 going on 23. If you saw my X-rays, I’m 65 going on 80. [Laughs]

    I’ve paid a price for the time off, frankly. Enough said there. I hope the best for the fellas. But I don’t know what’s coming up with Van Halen. It’s time for me to use whatever talents and skills that I have. I’m bettin’ the rent on it. You’re going to have a ball. This is the smile that launched a thousand hips.

    Not to change the subject off of Ed’s health, but did anybody notice Dave’s comment about being a music fan. And something to the effect of “I know how every note of every song should go, and I expect it to be perfect”.

    Seemed an odd statement to me, just based on his own performances. Maybe he was just talking about the band playing the music?
    SOME VH LINKS CLASSICS


    "Sammy is fat, Dave is bald, Mike is next in line to be the Pope, Eddie is a drunk, Wolfie is fat, Gary is gay, CVH is VH, Mike is VH, Sammy can outsing Dave on a tequilla hangover, Eddie is a meth head, How Many Say I is the worst VH song ever, Up for Breakfast is a close second, Dave was horrible at radio and everybody hates the assless chaps.
    Ok I think that covers everything." Ziggysmalls

    "I sense that some of our newer passengers may be nervous due to the sudden turbulence. Please be seated, this is simply a normal part of the periodic ride.
    I didn't say we'll get to the destination, but until Alex comes out a says what a complete waste of carbon DLR is, we're still climbing, so strap yourselves in.
    Those of you who have been on this ride before, the hottie in the mini will be around shortly with your drinks......." Red

    I used to get sympathy posts on FB etc. when one of those "EVH is dead" hoaxes made the rounds. What is the latest one, and obviously I hope it's another bunk rumor!?!?

    Roth basically said that Ed "wasn't going to be able to answer the bell this time" and when asked about Ed's health refused to unequivocally say that he was fine.

    Could mean something, could mean nothing. A simple statement from Ed's camp could put a stop to this, the longer they refuse to issue a statement the more likely it us that there's something to it IMO.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.
