    A brief welcome to all of the Van Halen fans out there around the world. Something here of interest most likely...

    Yesterday I was having a nice Saturday afternoon in the Los Angeles area, enjoying my tried and true routine of writing in the morning before hitting the streets in my 1976 Corvette (more on that in a later post).

    At 2:00 PM, I found myself pulling into the parking lot of the Pacific Dining Car restaurant for a well deserved Porterhouse or NY Strip, I still hadn't decided which to run with that day. After being seated in the long main 'car' dining area, I quickly glanced around at the other diners- this being LA, I often like to check out the possibility of seeing celebrities enjoying the day like myself. A table across the way piqued my attention and I recognized Alex Van Halen, an older gentlemen dressed in Fred Segal's finest, as well as an attractive 30ish blond woman sitting to the left of Al.

    I found it amusing that Alex was dining with sunglasses on; especially given the low natural light in the dining room. Seeing the threesome got me to thinking about what had become of one of my favorite bands, Van Halen? I don't really keep up with all of their travails of late but had took notice of DLR's recent string of live dates and checked out this very web site for concert reviews and pictures. Why aren't these guys together I thought as I perused the wine list for a '97 Cab or perhaps a grand cru classe bordeaux.

    At that point, the older gentlemen in the suit with Alex Van Halen got up to go to the restroom or somewhere and I heard Alex speaking to the foxy blond. This is what I heard and I have to tell you that I swear by this and sought out this site to post this news for the fans out there:

    Alex Van Halen: "He doesn't get it but Ed hates his guts, still. Same as before, same as today, same as tomorrow. I called him yesterday and told him we were ready to move on a schedule to lay down the tracks. Maybe it will come together but we can't be sure until we see how they act around each other and whether or not Dave takes things semi-seriously". The foxy blond chick kind of shook her head and looked at Alex with sad but serious eyes.

    Foxy chick: "Will he agree to the launch idea?"

    Alex Van Halen: "Fuck yeah, he doesn't have a choice unless he wants to keep playing dates with "Best of the 80's".

    My steak came (rare Porterhouse this time) and I enjoyed it while I chewed on the information and scraps of Van Halen business I had just heard. The older guy returned to their table and he asked the waiter for the check. Alex looked a bit dissheveled but not too bad I guess for a mid Saturday afternoon.

    The three of them shuffled out of the room and wondered if what I had heard was what the legions of Van Halen fans have been waiting for: confirmation that a reunion and full recording schedule with all four original members is about to proceed? Let's hope so and let's also hope for a World Tour this summer.

    Who am I and why do I offer up this information? As noted before, I am a writer and fan of the band and I thought what I heard may be important to other fans.

    Take care and cross your fingers. Pretzel Logic is never what it seems, huh?

    Well, first, you definitly are a writer. Nice style and attention to detail.

    I don't disbelieve you. I am sure Dave and Eddie still have issues with one another. Dave even said in November that they hated each other still.

    The other night, I was talking with my friends who are all in college about the hopeful VH reunion. We got exicited over being in Giants Stadium or Continental Arena or Madison Square Garden to see them. But my one friend joked that Dave would do something immature, and Eddie would blow up, and leave the stage. He was kidding, but now I am not so sure that his joke was far from reality.

    i think it is time for dave and eddie to grow up, the past is the past, life is to short to still be pissed about things in the past, it is time to move on. so dave and ed it seems like alex and mike want to get the show on the road, so why dont you and dave shake hands and make up, did'nt having cancer teach you ed that life is short and you should make amends with people, and you to dave get rid of the ego for christ sakes this could be your last hope for a great carrier.
    van halen shall return. what you think is nothing might be something after all.

    I think Aerosmith's Joe Perry said it best: "We'll be friends tomorrow. Let's be rock and roll musicians FIRST." [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Can You say:

    TIMOTHY BARBECUES SHIT?

    What I have noticed is that when someone comes on using a "real" name as their ID, then they are full of poop and need a new diaper.

    TBS, YOU are the weakest link, GOODBYE!
