    This interview was a very strange read. So many different things have transpired since this interview. Interesting tid-bits -- "Not in it for the Money" -- Glenn Ballard -- Billy Squire -- Sebastion Bach -- Vince Neil -- Wow Mike sure was up front about things back then.

    I am surprised that Mike did not want Dave back.

    Here's the link -- http://www.van-halen.com/newsite/515096.html

    Mike said in the above linked interview that the music was done for a new album -- They were just waiting on a lead singer??? Didn't Ed say that Gary and he wrote all the songs together -- First the lyrics from Gary that inspired Ed to write the music?????

    <BLOCKQUOTE>quote:</font><HR>Update 10/21/97: Recently, it was broadcast on E! News that Gary Cherone has left the band and that Van Halen would be reuniting with former vocalist David Lee Roth to perform a benefit concert in January 1998.

    Rest assured, this report was completely FALSE. Van Halen have no plans to reunite with DLR and Gary is firmly in place as the band's lead singer.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>Whew, I'll bet everyone was on pins and needles hoping the story of Gary leaving and Dave returning wasn't true.

    "I don't think they've really decided what to call the swamp groove....it's had a few titles...but it could end up being called 'Dirty Water Dog'....which btw is a line Ed and Gary put in there for Wolf. They started writing the song last time we were in New York and Ed and Wolf would have dirty water dogs every day....but the song has nothing what so ever to do with hot dogs....go figure ....it's a REALLY cool song tho...." <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>That's cool! I love Dirty Water Dog, it's one of my all time favorite VH songs. [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]

    Eddie said that with the internet, the band is in direct contact with the fans.

    Alex said it's a rock and roll band, not international espionage.


    Ummmm...guys? Are you SURE you meant what you said there??


    At the time of the interview, Germany had long since reunited as one nation, and the GNP of East and West Germany combined at that point would be exactly $0, since those nations no longer existed.

    Well, it's nice to know that the band is in direct contact with the fans and that it is not international espionage. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    You know, Mike has been saying 'a singer everyone knows' since late '99. He first mentioned it in an interview with the Dutch VH fan club. I wonder if he mentioned it originally as an inside joke, suggesting himself?

    mike never wanted to work with roth again?

    i don't buy that one, i don't see that at all.

    he doesn't wanna work with dave, yet since gary left, he feels it's his business to tell us all of this stuff the band is supposedly doing and it's a name we'll all know and it's gonna be huge.

    i always thought mikey was a big suppoerter of original vh.

    Read what I just wrote again, JMJ. His statements make a bit more sense that way. [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

    and mike goes on record saying sammy left the band and that he then went on to badmouth the band, yet he still is friends with sam....

    these guys are confusing the shit outta me.
