    I didn't listen to the actual interview but read the highlights.

    I remember a month or so ago, Dave was interviewed and said he was going to talk to the brothers very soon. Now he has Vegas lined up. Obviously no proof or anything but I believe his meeting was probably to ask the brothers what is going on. Can he do a show or shows as DLR without having what happened to Mike when he supposedly got blessing to play with Sammy but ended up getting fired. The two bands comment. He may have said "if we are not doing anything are you going to hold it against me doing something? I want to be the singer but don't want to tick you guys off" So maybe had a heart to heart and now he has Vegas because it was made known to him that VH isn't doing anything for whatever reason. That is the reason why he said he is still the singer from what he gathers.

    I imagine he knows Eddie's health but was simply talking around it

    It could also explain Wolf's delay in releasing his music and his virtual disappearance from social media. But as mentioned above, we may be reading way too much into this all because of that picture that was posted in May.

    I also pretty much doubt, if Eddie was in fact sick, that Janie would be out doing stuff instead of staying by her husband's side. Her Twitter account pretty much shows that she's happy and enjoying life, but I don't know...
    Sam & Dave are equally as good.

    If Ed wasn’t sick, would Dave really answer “you’ve heard the same rumors I have and it’s not my place to say”? (Honest question, I’m not making a statement)

    Ed not being to answer the bell seems like an inability to do so as opposed to a lack of desire.

    My sense is all is not well with EVH, as DLR sounded a little uncomfortable discussing it. Paul let Dave switch the subject when it became apparent. I am sure he is well aware of anything going on with Eddie. As VH and Dave have been working together again for over a decade now. That being said, VH is famous (or infamous) for keeping a lid on things. Take it for what itís worth, but again that is what I heard in the interview.

    I get you man. And I agree but I am attempting to convey that until VH or whoever confirms or denies this, letís just hope for the best.

    Yeah, especially “not my place to say”. He’s basically saying he’s not pulling a Sammy and going that route. If Ed was at death’s door (God forbid) , do you believe DAVE would be doing these shows in Vegas?

    Hell no.

    To me, thatís the biggest indicator. I think Dave has too much class and respect for Ed.

    That's twice now. Don't know why you need to play that game.

    He might not be at death's door but that doesn't mean he's not ill.

    Besides it's not like Vegas is a long way from LA. I don't think Dave would need to put his life on hold, nor do I think Edward would want him to if he is indeed sick.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    Iím wondering if Dave has no direct knowledge of Eddieís health but has suspicions that something is wrong. That thing about the rumors makes me think that has caught his attention. If Eddie really is sick, he may not want anyone outside of his very immediate family to know.

    But it would be in poor taste. I would think that DAVE would be showing much respect if such a thing were to happen, not setting up gigs.

    Perhaps.

    The bottom line is we really don't know.

    Something derailed a proposed reunion tour with Mike. Wolf's album has still yet to see the light of day. If Dave was planning a national tour with 50 dates across the country I'd agree with you. A nine show schedule in Vegas is a different animal and I don't think that's in poor taste if Ed is sick.

    I hope you're right, but Roth's comments are concerning about being the face of Van Halen for the foreseeable future and Ed not being able to answer the bell this time.

    Again, could very well be nothing but I think it would be shortsighted not to entertain the idea that something is wrong.
