    Default Melodic Rock update...They're kidding right?

    Just saw this at Melodicrock.com...if anyone has any doubts as to Ed's meth habit, this should prove it once and for all (lol)!:

    Right now Van Halen is contemplating going on tour in 2007.
    And in an interesting twist it is neither Sammy Hagar nor David Lee Roth that's got fans buzzing about the potential outing but Eddie Van Halen's 15-year-old son Wolfgang.
    It seems that Michael Anthony is out on bass and Wolfgang is in, according to VH's spokesperson. The band is also reportedly passing on Sammy, Dave, and presumably homeboy Gary Cherone, and considering using another family member, a nephew, in the lead vocal spot. (It's unclear if the nephew is drummer Alex Van Halen's son, but if he is, then it would truly be Van Halen, no?)
    One way or another the original VH will undoubtedly be back in the news soon when the 2007 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees are announced. The seminal Cali metallers should be shoo-in.

    What do I think of this? Baloney really. Sure, something like this might be contemplated, but I can absolutely confirm without any doubt whatsoever that a Van Halen 2007 tour continues to be pitched to promoters and that tour includes frontman David Lee Roth.
    The asking price per show is not something that anyone is going to pay if it ain't Roth up front. There are already issues getting around that fact that it is not a true re-union of the original band now that Michael Anthony is confirmed as a non-starter. If EVH wants to do a club tour sometime, then the above idea might fly.
    Where are things currently in regards to this 2007 tour with Roth? Still early days...

    Andrew is a stand up guy and reports what he hears but he doesn't believe this shit.(baloney etc)

    Whoever started this rumour needs to step back from the pipe and go and get some vit-c.

    (Not sure who I'm addressing with that last comment actually)
    A man could lose himself in a country like this.

    melodicrock.com is all real news no bs at all. whoever runs the site basically never posts about gossip. the rumours he does post all come out true in the end all the time which is odd. its like the guy is severely in the know with a few music industry people.
    and also the title of the site is in eddies stripes right? it was like that for almost two weeks before this thing with roth was reported and mikey was out, and i think but im not 100% that melodicrock was the first site to report it.

    Wow, a family band.

    Maybe they'll tour with the Osmonds.

    Man

    Around and around we go, where it must stop nobody knows

    I don't get it. NO DAVE NO SAM

    A nephew?

    Alex's son?

    This indeed is a looney ride, cause I can't make heads nor tails of this.

    What's there to gain if any of this flies with a fourth singer?

    I mean, promoters can't be entertaining a family affair? can they?
    All songs written and performed by:

    Edward Van Halen: Lead Guitars, Backround vocals
    Sammy Hagar: Lead Vocals, Acoustic/Guitars
    Michael Anthony: Bass/ Backround Vocals
    Alex Van Halen: Drums/Percussions/Back Vocals
    Sammy Hagars solos available on Geffen
    Special Thanks to: Valerie, Wolfie, Sue, Kari,Claudio for introducing the RedRocker to us Al's Harem and kids, Elisha, Taylor, Kama/ all the fans past and present: all recordings done at "5150" where else! A nod and wink to Ed Leffler.
    Irving Azoff/ All the staff at Warner Bros. past and present/ Gary Cherone for giving his all/ David Lee Roth for getting us there and oh yea Ray Daniels, for keeping the bathrooms clean during all the performances. Oh yea, your fucking check is in the mail and next time you whip your bullshit on us again, where taking your ass to Cabo and pounding mud up your ass till you cough up sand for the loss of 8 years. nuff said, IT"S 5150 TIME

    Melodic rock says it came from the Boston Globe. Couldn't find it there, it must have been removed?

    I guess that they don't have to pay royalties to anyone else.

I can see it now, the lights get low for the bass solo and here come Wolfie out with a Smoking Loon Bass with a bottle in hand chugging it down... How could daddy Ed get upset over this display over public drunkeness and excess??? Eddie said himself he was drinking at ages in the single digits and we know that he has been known to be in the public eye sorta buzzed once or twice. *cough* Dimebag funeral *cough* Wolfie would be the ultimate bass player "Yes Man" that Mikey couldn't completely fulfill... If Wolfie bitches, either Dad sends him to his room or Uncle Al slaps him in the back of the head with a drumstick... Now that we're talking more about family, is there any other Van Halens out there??? I believe the boys need a singer too. They could really be Van Halen in the fullest sense of the word with a relative who is singing. If shit goes south, what's gonna happen? No invitation to the family reunion? They're Van Halens, no need for them to wear a cup... I hope you guys like my ideas and I believe us at this forum have the power of prayer and the dedication to get a grassroots effort going to see that Van Halen is all family and has no outsiders.
