    Default Toto's Lukather Says Van Halen Is Dealing With 'Some Health Issues,' Recalls Meeting/Dave says VH is finished

    This is in the random shit thread - but probably needs its own thread!

    Summer tour cancelled a number of times.
    Thinks Van Halen is finished
    Van Halen not coming back in the fashion as we know
    Eddie has a story to tell

    It's essentially exactly what Leroy posted, but here's a transcript of the relevant portion - 8:10 in the interview.

    “People want to know: what happened to the Van Halen thing? Were you bummed out you couldn’t play with those guys this summer or what?”

    “It’s been cancelled a number of times and I think Van Halen is finished and this is the next phase. I’ve inherited the band de facto, whatever that means. I think it means ‘you’ve inherited it, carry this proudly.’ Van Halen isn’t going to be coming back in the fashion that you know. And that being said Eddie’s got his own story to tell - not mine to tell it.”
    And another tangentially relevant excerpt. Reinforces the fact that he's no longer acting as if he's in Van Halen.

    “John 5 is one of my friends. Supposedly you guys recorded a record. Will that ever see the light of day?”

    “Now it will. Now there’s been a revision of things and I can start making real plans. And start marching into the future. And of course you’ll start hearing that material. This is material that we wrote both for me solo and for Van Halen. And it’s quite a bank of stuff.”

    And the sky is blue.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    Q: who was the biggest douche that you have worked with?

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Now the new David-Lee-Roth-Van Halen album, “Tokyo Dome In Concert,” is available for purchase, and it’s super, super, super, super, super, super, crazy bad. - Doug Elfman

    At least someone in the band has somewhat confirmed what was suspected for a long time. I'm hoping that DLR/John 5 acoustic album really does get released!

    Who woulda thought the “Mighty” Van Halen would end with a whimper instead of a Bang! What a waste.

    I'll be honest, I never expected the 2015 tour to happen. When it did, it was the icing on the cake. Yeah maybe the vocals weren't the best, but they were on stage! (Charlotte 2015) Looks like for the last time unfortunately.

    I felt like the band was done in 2015, which is why I’m glad I went to see them one more time.

    And knowing all this Wolfgang still hasn’t released his record. Very strange.

    This is confusing. Dave says VH is done and that we won't hear from them again in the "fashion that we know" but he has "inherited the band" Also that Ed has a story to tell. I have a hard time reading anything into this besides Ed is not well. Could also be official retirement. Either way I think we now have a legit "right" to here something official from the brothers.

    Yep. That last show at the Hollywood Bowl did seem somewhat final, but none of us quite wanted to believe it.

    Dave tried to fire it up a couple more times, but to no avail.

    There won't be any Sam Halen revival either. This isn't another case of singer shuffle.

    Eddie is retired.

    Well now he can, because a few days ago our boy Eddie Trunk said that the reason that Wolf hasn't released it is probably because he would have to answer questions about the status of Van Halen. That's off his plate now!

    My money is still on DLR/J5 album seeing the light of day 1st!

    Couldn't care less about a DLR John 5 record. But I've never been big on Dave outside of VH.
