    It's so short it's barely worth mentioning, but since nothing else is going on...

    "Van Halen with DLR was "my band," VH with Sam was a band I liked." - Dave's Dreidel

    I am not sure if you know, sometimes sarcasm doesn't come across well on the net, but you know that's a goof, right?
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    A man's rights rests in three boxes: the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box

    I appreciate the kind correction; I have had a lot on my mind lately, and I was paying half attention when I posted the link

    Speaking of horseshit articles, this came up on my Google feed today or whatever you call it. Sounds just like Ed lol!:

    Eddie Van Halen Says He Apologized Over And Over Again For His Condescending Statements About Bass Players

    Van Halen’s legendary guitarist Eddie Van Halen joined an interview with The Hard Times and talked about how he tried to make peace with his bass players after he made several unfortunate statements about them over the years.

    As you may know, Van Halen‘s founder and guitarist Eddie Van Halen has been struggling with various health problems for the last few years. Back in 2000, Eddie was diagnosed with tongue cancer and underwent surgery to remove roughly a third of his tongue.

    Although Eddie was declared cancer-free in 2002, it was revealed last year that he had been secretly battling throat cancer over the last five years. Apparently, Van Halen was traveling to Europe as a part of his throat cancer treatment and now he was in a stable condition.

    Since he had been dealing with serious health issues, Eddie did not appear on any interviews or shows for a long time now. However, recently, the Van Halen icon joined a conversation with The Hard Times and answered questions about his music career for the first time after his cancer treatment.

    The interviewer reminded Eddie about how he paid the bassists in his band less than the other musicians


    and asked what his son Wolfgang would say about that considering now he is the current bassist of Van Halen. As a response, Eddie claimed that paying less to the bass players was something every band did back then.
    However, he mentioned it was not fair and he regretted it. Eddie also opened up about his condescending statements about the bassists and revealed that he apologized for his discourse over and over again.

    Here’s what Eddie Van Halen stated about his attitude towards bass players:

    “Woah buddy, that stings. I want to state publicly that I’m no bassphobe, kay? I’ve welcomed bassists into all of my bands.

    Sure, in my younger years, I paid them peanuts compared to the other members and said things like, ‘Lemmy tell you this, I don’t care if you play bass as long as you stay away from me on stage,’ but I’ve apologized for those comments repeatedly. Besides, literally every band was paying bassists less! I regret it, but it was so commonplace back then.”

    Click here for the source.

    Yeah because he talks just like that! At least make an attempt and throw in a "so to speak." The "source" oddly enough is the same as the above one. Instead of excessively embellishing like they usually do, they just straight up made this one up. That's a little more than a misquote.

    Thought I blocked Metalhead Zone...

    Hard Times is a known satire site. Most of the time, they're pretty funny.

    Metalhead Zone and Alternative Nation are the National Enquirer of music websites. They are full of shit.

    I've seen this. Just goes to show the "not talking" strategy doesn't work anymore in 2020 - if you don't talk, they'll make shit up and pretend you said it!

    That’s can’t be legit. He trashed Wolfie? And it references multiple base players. Unless he’s including Stone, it makes no sense. Plus, Mike owned his share of the music, not just a hired player. When Sam re-joined Mike had to sell back his share of their catalog. I also recall Dave mentioning they had a 4 way split in the early years. Not only does it not sound like Eddie, it’s seems factually wrong? What am I missing?

    Probably this:

    The Hard Times is a very real punk news site that you should not question. Just absorb the information as truth and move on. The historic satire site was founded in December 1976. It’s made by a group of punk and hardcore kids from all the different sub-genres of the DIY hardcore scene. Any resemblance to actual persons or band names is coincidental.
    I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em. -

    I genuinely appreciate that; for awhile, threads were being closed prematurely. Even so, if you wanna close this thread, by all means...when I put this up, I had a million things on my mind, and I didn't realize that it was satire
