    A friend of mine who owns a record store has given me a new peice of info regarding the VH singer situation.

    A freind of his is the manager of the L.A. Guitar Center who also leaked him info about the seriousness of EVH's medical condition. Apparently, Eddie was diagnosed early with a form of TERMINAL cancer. This had been after VH's contention that EVH did not have cancer, but was mearly going in for tests.

    It wasn't until months later that VH verified that EVH DID have cancer and was getting treatments every day. EVH has been beating it, and is starting to go into remission for the most part.

    Here is the latest word from this "source":

    EVH and DLR wanted to go forward with a reunion, but representatives for DLR want certian clauses in his contract which give DLR an equal footing in the band, creatively and financially. VH's representatives want DLR to start out as a "salaried" player with no creative control (outside of the music) and to gradually work his way back into his original place in the band. This is obviously what's causing the stalemate.

    This is what caused DLR to take his own "VH show" on the road. VH is understandably befuddled by DLR's recent moves and is currently entertaining the idea of a 4th vocalist. This vocalist is none other than DAMON JOHNSON of Brother Cane, which also is in a state of flux, member-wise. Damon had some connection with VH while opening for them on tour and writing songs with Sammy Hagar.

    This is by no means FACT. But it's feasible nonetheless. I just wanted to pass it along!

    First, nearly every form of cancer is TERMINAL if caught too late or untreated. So, I wouldn't worry much about that rumor. In general, oral cancer is particularly nasty because it right near many lymph nodes -- so hopefully Ed dodged the bullet.

    I wouldn't doubt that "creative control" is the key sticking point with a DLR reunion. And I really wouldn't blame Dave for demanding equal creative and financial participation. Ed & Alex still do not understand that it takes a team (i.e. band)to be successful not only individual contributions or cool riffs.

    If this were the late 80's with Van Halen continuing to be wildly successful, I could see Van Halen negotiating from a position of strength. Unfortunately, VH album sales have been in decline for the last 10 years and their latest effort stiffed. They have only hurt themselves over the past several years by perpetuating a public relations clown-show.

    If Van Halen releases material with a 4th singer, they had better rename the band to something else. That's the only way it will have a chance for public acceptance. Period.

    I think it's cool mentioning Damon Johnson, since he's from Birmingham, but....c'mon....I think the creative control scenario is entirely plausible, though. Thanks for the rumour, though.

    Please, no 4th singer for VH!

    As for what caused/causing the reunion holdup, who knows. It could be contractual or it could be something that is out of their control. I'm sure we will find out when the time is right.

    I agree. A fourth singer would mean the death of Van Halen. [img]smilies/cry.gif[/img]

    You will see a 4th singer for VH.

    (I had to say that because with my "sources" always giving me the opposite info, I needed to post something negative about Dave coming back)


    But seriously, it ain't gonna be the singer from Brother Cane, because its gonna be DAVE Brotha!!
    By late August theyt will ALL be back at 5150.

    The Boston Pilgrims (1903-1906)
    The Boston Red Sox (1907-present) - Proof

    The Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets whatever you want to call them, have NEVER displayed "SOX" anywhere on their caps, jerseys, or merchandise, therefore they shouldn't be referred to as such. However, the White Sox have used "SOX" since 1912.

    The SOX are in Chicago...we just allow the Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets to use the name.
