    They report that Dave says soon he'll be touring with Sammy somewhere and Eddie Van Halen will do something stupid...

    And Val will blame Dave.

    And When they find out Dave didn't do it, Dave says all eyes will turn to the bass player...

    Mikey.

    Don't ask me what the fuck this means.

    Er, Dave...? What the hell are you talking about?

    Here's the "story":

    NEWS - David Lee Roth Says He's Still A Van Halen Scapegoat
    05/06/2002


    (5/6/02, 7 a.m. ET) -- Former Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth is preparing to hit the road with another ex-Van Halen vocalist, Sammy Hagar. Although Roth hasn't officially been part of Van Halen for years, he says he's still the band's occasional scapegoat.

    "I am certain that at some point in the next year I'll be on the other side of the planet touring with Sam Hagar, and (Eddie Van Halen's wife, actress) Valerie (Bertinelli) will blame me for some stupid thing Eddie did, and when they discover it wasn't me, they will all point to the bass player," Roth says.

    Van Halen's bassist--and scapegoat, according to Roth--is Michael Anthony. While Anthony, Alex Van Halen, and Eddie Van Halen continue to keep a low profile, their former vocalists kick off their joint tour May 29 at the Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio.

    "...Valerie will blame me for some stupid thing Eddie did, and when they discover it wasn't me, they will all point to the bass player."
    Hmmm. What the hell is Dave getting at? Val will blame Dave for something Eddie did. When they find out Dave didn't do it they'll blame Mike. To me this means that both Dave and Mike know something and aren't supposed to say anything about it. That something is a stupid action by Eddie Van Halen according to Dave anyway.

    Does this make sense?

    Sounds like Dave knows something we don't. Maybe the rumors about the divorce and EVH falling off the wagon have some substance...

    Didn't Dave say this at the press conference??? I am sure he did...

    [A question is asked about Michael Anthony]

    SAMMY: Well, Mike’s been working with me on a side project called Planet US -- that we’re going to do in the fall – so, Mike and I have actually been jamming and playing together, and if he wants to come out and play with me, he’s welcome, and if he wants to come out and play with Dave, he’s welcome. Mike’s a great guy and a great player.
    DAVE: Mike’s a neutral man -- he’s Switzerland in this thing. Once this afternoon is over, they’re gonna blame it all on him anyway. (laughs) Of course he’s gonna wind up out here -- he owns the tequila company -- how wrong is that?!

    Well, the way I see that is the failed reunion attempt as being what Dave would be blamed for. After that, I think it was Dave's sense of humor regarding Mikey being the easy scapegoat when there isn't another one, just like we all have kidded about it before as well knowing of course that Mike is the innocent bystander).

    I think it was just Davespeak for how things generally work on Howdy Doody mountain and he didn't mean any specific incident.

    Perhaps what Dave is getting at is the fact that Eddie has never taken responsibility for anything he has done to destroy the band, even though he's done nothing BUT, for the last 6 years.

    Dave did this. Sammy did that. God knows what he's blaming Cherone for, these days.

    And when all those guys are gone, who's left? Mikey.

    The Val reference is due to the fact that she, as well as some of the wool bearing creatures around here, believe Eddie's bullshit and go around repeating all of Eddie's crap.

    I take this to mean 2 things, possibly both. 1. The failed reunion (again) 2. And Eddie drinking (again).

    What is Dave doing? I don't understand his motivation for saying this stuff. Is he that bitter that they can't come to an agreement for a reunion? Hope he enjoys this tour with Sammy, because at the rate he is going, this will be his last hurrah. Or at least the last time anybody will care about him...

    Unfortunately this doesn't surprise me. It falls in line with what Mike was saying yesterday.
    This is a sad sad situation when you see your favorite band, which has sometimes even changed your life (I know it has changed mine), fall so low.

    I hope next year will bring better news. And I hope Planet Us is as good as Mike says it is.

    later.

    Seems like too much COCAINE Dave.

    Take it easy, enjoy the tour with Sam then do a kick ass album with Van Halen.

    "Van Halen is definitely a ladies band, and I´ve got the Polaroids to prove it". - David Lee Roth

    WOLFGANG did the IMPOSSIBLE, he brought back VAN HALEN, DEAL WITH IT.
