    Sounds crazy, but late last year when Dave Grohl was doing the summer festivals in the UK with the Foo's, he made a flippant comment that the last time he was over here, was around the time David Lee Roth attempted suicide.
    Strange thing to say, unless it was a silly joke?

    Not sure if it was just a bad taste gag at something or another, hence why this is in the rumour mill.

    Well I'm pretty sure that would have made its way to the media if it was true. [img]graemlins/brickwall.gif[/img]

    It could be a also be a thinly veiled reference to Kurt Cobain. Didn't he try to kill himself when Nirvana was on tour in the UK?

    I thought Cobain nearly overdosed in Italy about six months before he finally blew his brains out. Where's FORD? I'm sure he knows.

    Cobain allegedly attempted suicide with a mix of barbituates and wine I believe around late feb. 1994. As for Grohl's comment, I don't know, but I don't think it was meant to be taken literally.

    Perhaps he meant Career Suicide (i.e. No Holds Barred BBQ)..

    WOW!!! HOLYFUCKINGFUCK!!! What kind of Twilight Zone am I living in? What kind of Viagra-Testosterone mix are these 50 year old + guys on? I never thought I'd hear another Dave and Eddie album again. If I did, I thought it would be a mid-paced affair like the Rolling Stones or later day AC/DC. After the TATTOO single I was ready for a poppy album from old guys, with a few nods to harder rock (She's A Woman and Bullethead) and I would have been happy with that.

    I NEVER THOUGHT I'D BE GETTING A FULL-THROTTLE HARD ROCK, HEAVY METAL, BALLS TO THE WALL, FUCKING VAN HALEN THRASH METAL ALBUM!!!

    Look....I dont think there is anything true about this. I am going to close this thread, if it turns out to be true I will re-open it.

    Please send all complaints to Glenn. [img]graemlins/wtf.gif[/img]
