    i had an orientation at the gym this morning at 6:00 am with a guy who used to work in radio here in california. i'm obviously not going to give his name because everyone is going to try to hunt down the guy to get info. he doesn't do radio anymore. he did have his own show here for quite some time and used to work with mark and brian. here's what i heard...

    he wanted to make it a point that ed is a cool dude, no bones about it. he said ed is one of the nicest guys you will ever meet.

    he said a little over 10 years ago, van halen came into the studio to go on air with mark and brian. he walked in and went right up to ed, stuck out his hand and said, "hey eddie, how ya doin, how's val"? he said looked at him like who the fuck are you? then eddie shook his hand and said, "oh yeah, i know you! you're ------i have a bunch of pictures of you at home." believe it or not, this guy went to high school with valerie bertinelli at granada hills high. they were the king and queen of the senior prom. he's also played golf with ed before and caddied for him, he said ed sucks , but said is just the nicest guy.

    we talked about the current situation a bit. he said ed is in remission and is healthy right now and doing well. he said that things with roth didn't work out and probably never will. he gave this explanation...he said think of it as trying to get back together with your old girlfriend. you get back together, sit and talk, joke about the old days and say hey, we can get this done. but then when you try it again, you see why it stopped at some point in time. he left it at that. he said it's most likely that dave won't be back and that sammy will. he said mikey and sam are real close, but heck, we all know that.

    he also said that there was some feuding about mikey playing with dave on the tour, and that's why mikey didn't. he said ed wasn't too happy about that. ed didn't care however that he played with sam.

    he also said, now get this, that van halen are "in the studio", that's all he said. he also said alex is neutral and could care less what goes on. he says alex is just like, well, let me know when we're gonna play. supposedly he's willing to play with whoever, it's ed who is calling the shots right now.

    he also said that bringing in cherone wasn't a good idea and was just a bad move for them. he said the live shows were great though

    on a side note, he's also personal friends with chad krueter (SP?) of nickleback. i told him about the rumor we had heard about chad producing the next vh album and said who knows, but he hadn't heard anything about it.

    so that's all i heard, top to bottom. seems things are still at a standstill

    Hopefully positive news JMJ. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Buy they've been in the studio since the summer of 1999.

    The problem is getting them out.

    I am currently working on a little bit of info that I hope to be able to share soon. [img]graemlins/sssh.gif[/img]
    With my past track record and all, I just want to make sure before I post this. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Maybe they are still tinkering and noodling around in the studio and Sammy will throw his vocals on soon, who knows?

    I can't tell whether Sammy means that Eddie isn't ready to tour OR isn't ready to record/start a new project with him, Mike and Al.

    I hope he just isn't ready to tour, but is in 5150 like JMJ's guy says he is, with Sammy or someone singing.

    Hope them being in the studio working on something is true [img]smile.gif[/img] If Sammy's the singer again he is putting on one hell of a smokescreen.His comments on Rockline the other night sounded like he was just fine doing what he was doing and had no intention of leaving "The Waboritas".Then again maybe there is a singer #4??
    Van Halen....2003??? In television if your on hiatus this long it's means you have been cancelled and nobody told ya.Has VH Been Cancelled and no ones telling us?? C'mon Ed give us a break and give us an update...

    Thanks for the tidbits to keep our hope up. I think if VH EVER puts out another album, it should be called "In The Studio".

    I hope JMJ has some valid information here. Haven't we read/heard the same analogy about working with Dave as an ex-wife instead of an ex-girlfriend? Anyway I'm optimistic that Sammy will be back in the Van Halen fold (if he isn't already!).

    And with all going on in personal lives at this piont in their lives, who says Sammy can't do VH and still work the Waboritas?

    While I'll support the band no matter who the singer is, I would think that if Ed didn't want Sammy or Dave that he would have already found the fourth singer. However, my vote is for the Red Rocker!
