    Hi all,
    Spoke at length yesterday with Eric Martin and he let me know that there is no truth in the recent rumors he has been working with Eddie VH.

    We all know Eric was a possible canidate to take over from Dave and he filled me in on what happened there.
    Really funny stuff, but I'll let you know the details when I get the interview typed up and ready.

    Super nice guy and one of the best interviews I have ever done, with a bit in there of general interest to VH fans.

    So, Eric is not working with, nor has he heard from Eddie. And from what he told me he isn't likely to ever hear from him either!!

    Best regards,
    Andrew.

    You are right there! And the feeling is mutual, believe me! This interview won't help matters either.

    Thanks Top Timmy, appreciate the post.

    Eric spoke for a few minutes on the VH thing - you all should get a good laugh from it.
    Gonna take a while to get typed though!

    Best regards,
    Andrew.

    Thanks for sharing the info, Andrew.

    Can't wait to check it out in it's entirety! And if I might echo what Double T said, keep up the great work on the site!

    Do you have Michael Sweet's number? I'd love to hear what he's got cookin' for us next.

    Keep rockin'!

    It's about time for a Stryper reunion, isn't it?

    And thank God Eric Martin isn't going anywhere near the pathetic remains of "Van Halen"......

    Welcome back, Van HALEN!!!!

    FORD, last I heard about Mike Sweet is that he's not really into a full-fledged Stryper reunion. They've done a few shows as a band within the past year or 2 but it's not supposed to be anything permanent. Too bad I guess...

    As far as Eric Martin goes with Van Halen, I look at it this way. It couldn't get much worse than what we have now. I just wonder if Sam & Dave know more than they're letting on and are once again, using this as an "audition" tour. Maybe a big warm-up for the "VH Farewell Tour" with both guys at the helm.

    Then again...maybe not.

    The thread over in "Sam & Dave Forum" said Dave alluded to a reunion this morning on Mark & Brian. Something like "he'd do it if they could get it all together."

    I believe Andrew is refering to 1985. Rumors were that Eric was one of singers Ed auditioned after Dave left in '85. It would be interesting to hear that story. Thanks for the info Andrew. Your website rocks!

    FORD's a Stryper fan? I would have never guessed that. Maybe I'll have to break out "Against the Law" later. That had some good tunes on it.

    Wow! I did not hear that in 1985 and when I saw this thread, I kind of got excited about this rumor pertaining to the present. I thought Eric Martin was great with Mr. Big and has a great voice.

    I can't wait to read the interview!
    Could this be magic?

    Hmmmm...makes me wonder what his alter ego thinks of the tune "To Hell With The Devil".
    "Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that."

    "This is a lttle prayer dedicated to the separation of church and state. I guess if they are going to force those kids to pray in schools they might as well have a nice prayer like this: Our Father who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation indivisible as in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail. Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."

    "I think it's the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is drawn and cross it deliberately."

    -George Carlin 1937 - 2008
