    Ed has gone on the record as saying that he "fuckin loves DLR". But you never hear that from Al. In fact - Al always seems to be an instigator of shit; fueling his brothers rage..... Didn't Sam mention something along those lines as well? Maybe Al hates DLR and has put the bug in Ed's ear that it wouldn't be best for the band.

    Then of course there is Mikey---Lord knows he is a difficult bastard to get along with...I don't see how he could work with anyone [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img] [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    Well Dave did nail Alex's first wife to be not long before they got married.

    I, myself would have a problem forgiving someone for that.

I've never read it, but I think the book says that this alleged incident is what lead to Eddie breaking his hand on the Diver Down tour, because he got pissed off and punched a wall after learning about Dave's having done this.

    Anybody got that book?

    I have the "said" book. It relates the story to being after the 1984 tour, and before the European Monsters of rock dates,Basically Alex was marrying Valerie Kendal,his parents didn`t approve and hired a private investigator, who discovered DLR doing the dirty.Not only with Valerie but with her mother also!!!!The rumours/story made it into the british press, with Valerie Kendal being referred to as Valerie Van Halen.OOps.
    Eddie naturally saw this and assumed the obvious confusion, was livid, and decided to confront Dave, hence the broken wrist.Who knows if this is true???Only AVH,EVH,DLR, and VK.But that is what is written in the book, which IMHO is very pro-Dave.

    I've got that book - Its good for photos buts pretty lightweight in its texts. I dont think it was reasearched all that well, just some words to fill it out between band shots

    Hmm, interesting...

    It seems to me like there must be more friction events between the two of them down the line than we know about. Being abandoned in '85 would piss me off, but not to the extent Ed has been all along. It had to have been the proverbial "straw that stroked the camel's sack."

    I think it's pretty safe to say that Ed and Dave have never really gotten along. Alex used to buddy around with Dave to save the band but ever since the split Alex has been pretty adamant that he is not a Diamond Dave fan.
    I have always gotten the impression that Ed and Dave can't stand each other, I tend to think this is true and that's why we will never see a reunion. It's like water and oil, they just don't mix.
    Now if Ed does hate Dave we can pretty much assume that Al does too, Al always sides with Eddie.
    I remember Mike saying he was the last person that wanted to work with Dave back in 96. I also have an issue of the inside where Mike says he can't see them working with DLR again because of all the bad blood.
    That means it's 3 for 3 againts a DLR reunion.
    Sorry I just don't see a reunion with Dave happening.
