    Hello all:

    I've been trying to get clarification on this, I don't know if it belongs in the rumor mill or not, but here goes.

    Talben Meyers is the drive-time jock at 97.9 KUPD here in Phoenix, he plays a lot of hard, heavy music, mostly by new bands, with the occassional classic thrown in, with VH (with DLR) getting a lot of play lately.

    Anyway, he made a statement yesterday to the effect that Valerie Bertinelli had, "Let the cat out of the bag", saying that Van Halen will be touring in 2001 with DLR. I've attempted to contact him at the station, and have sent him an email asking him to clarify where/what was said and in what context and if he was able to confirm the sources. I have yet to hear from him, but he does have a lot of connections in the business and seems to have some credibility. I'll keep everybody posted if I get a response from him.

    If anybody else would like to email him, his address is:

    talben@98kupd.com

    I think all systems are go with just the legalites, details still being sorted out. Val was not the only person to let the cat out of the bag. Just see the quotes attributed to Gary and his new band-mate. As noted in my earlier post, Roth is busy finalising all details with lawyertypes etc as we speak.

    It is only a matter of time before an anncmt is made IMO

    Don't take it personally dude.

    I think at this point of the game, until Eddie himself says something, nobodies to intrested in anybodies statements.

    Shit I'll bet some people won't believe it until they have a brand new VH cd in hands!

    That sounds like one of my topics.....

    Everyone looks, but nobody responds.... I guess that is part of being the FNG...

    HA HA HA HA HA
    I am always curious to hear a VH rumour though....Here is to hoping that Dave is really back....

    Hey VHDOF, you gotta love the Big Red Radio, eh? I'm a big fan of the Mayor of Palookaville. Haven't lived in AZ for about 13 years now, but I've got lots of fond memories (Freeway Mooner, my Red Card, Curtiss Johnson, the Heavy Metal Maiden, etc.)

    I'm curious to find out if he responds to you. Would be cool if he had some solid info.

    Keep us informed.

    Rockin' the red block,

    TJ

    I'm gonna move this to rumors dude... general rule of thumb we use is if its something everyone can read and discuss (ie a web report or newspaper/magazine article) it stays in main (at least till its discredited) , if its just something one guys seen/heard and cant really be verified by anyone else, we move to the rumor mill.

    Goo:

    Thanks for the clarification on things, no problem.

    My job: Lurk a lot and post when appropriate.

    Your job: Monitor, banish idiots, post when appropriate, and move things around as you see fit.

    It's a pretty simple relationship, though I've seen emails from people who think it's amazingly complex...

    I live in Phoenix...and remember the above rumor. Talben enjoys fucking with other DJ's in town, the whole "Dave is at the airport thing" from what I can gather was to make fun of another Phoenix DJ Carol Springer. When I talked to him that day I asked why her name kept coming up, he laughed really hard and told me to keep listening. If anyone knows in Phoenix, it is him.

    Well, everyone, I got a response from Talben, and apparently he did identify this as a rumor only, and I missed him saying that. Sorry for the confusion.

    Here is the chain of emails. The GC, KX, and Geddy Lee referred to in the Subject was a pathetic attempt on my part to get radio play for Galactic Cowboys, King's X, and Geddy Lee, respectively.

    From: "Talben Meyers" <talben@98kupd.com>
    To: vhdof@yahoo.com
    Subject: RE: Valerie VH, GC, KX, Geddy Lee...
    Date: Thu, 19 Oct 2000 18:53:01 -0700

    I've recieved a ton of mail on this subject.

    Valerie made statements but they're not documented, so, she could've said anything. I was just spreading a roumor (ed-sic). AND I SAID THAT ON THE AIR! Not that anyone cares if I try to disclaim myself. However it does seem safe to say Van Halen NEEDS Dave.

    So, yeah.

    etc....

    Talben:

    Yesterday you said that Valerie Bertinelli had 'let the cat out of the bag', or something to that effect in saying that VH would tour next year with DLR. Where did you hear/read this, and were you able to confirm that she said it?

    etc...
