    Sammy did a call in interview on 107.7 the bone this afternoon. Some of the things he talked about were his upcoming tour here in SF, his work with Planet Us, and even touring with David Lee Roth. He said that for these shows in SF, don't be surprised if Neil Schon, Michael Anthony, and Deen Castronovo make a "surprise" visit. He talked about their collaboration and said that they will hit the studio this fall to record their album together. (I know this is pretty much common knowledge already). He went on to emphasize that this will be different from HSAS and will definately have a VH/hard Journey edge to it. Now, when DLR came up in the conversation, he confirmed that yes, they did talk , and that a tour was in that conversation. Sammy stated that he wouldn't want to reunite with VH on a permanent basis, but only to co-tour with Roth. He said that he is ready to do this but that there is SOMETHING HOLDING DLR UP. What this exactly, he did not say. He also went on to say that the brothers were like a dysfunctional family who can't get it together. Well there it is...Finally words straight from the horses mouth, not just a website. Hopefully all of this will come to fruitation and we will see this in the flesh!

    Thanks for sharing !!

    It would be kool to see Mikey and Sammy on the same stage playing some tunes. I am looking forward to hearing some tunes with Sam, Mike, and Neil Schon.

    As far as the brothers being "disfunctional", well I would say that is fairly accurate. We hear bits and pieces from everyone except the VH brothers.

    Oh yeah, "something is holding Dave up" ? That seems strange to me. Maybe he wants to release some music, or find a deal for his DVD ?

    Thanks for posting the info about the interview. Looks like Sammy will be VERY busy this year. I do wonder what is holding up Mr. Roth. Whatever it is, I hope it gets done quickly so these guys can hit the road (especially here in New England).

    If anyone wants to see what dysfunctional looks like, go look in the mirror. I'm pretty sure it's part of everyone's life in some shape or form. We just don't have everything we say and do, or don't say and do, put under the microscope for others to pick apart. Once again, I smell smoke.

    Does the meaning of sentence 3 go with sentence 1?
    Or sentence 2?

    I think what sux balls the most is that everyone here is quickly and desparately grasping at ANYTHING Van Halen. Everyone is saying that they would like to see Dave and Sam and Al on stage and so on, but without Ed and Al, it just doesn't mean much to me. Sure, it is intriguing when you think about Sam and Dave on stage together, but it is too bad how this whole thing is turning out. Van Halen, with Roth or Hagar is truly Van Halen and without all of them together, fuck it. We keep hashing over it time and time again, but if you look hard and closely, even logical speculation suggests that Van Halen is at their end. Mike has his own Web site, is working with Sammy, Dave is out there touring and looking dorky and Van Halen is without a record company and a manager, and to top it off, we have heard zippo from Ed or Al. Whatever happened to, "We'll stay in touch"???? I should either take more of a liking to the new bands that are out there or listen to previously released VH material cuz the future of VH is nowhere to be found. Dysfunctional? Hell yeah, we are all dysfunctional, but come on, Ed, on the surface, seems very stubborn and like he could be a major prick to work with.
