Roth says Van Halen reunion 'inevitable'

NEW YORK (Billboard) - Reuniting the original Van Halen lineup is just a matter of time, according to former vocalist David Lee Roth.

"I talked to the drummer (Alex Van Halen) about a week ago," the band's former lead singer told the Pittsburgh Tribune Review. "And I think, eventually, the inevitable will happen."

"It definitely won't be rockers with walkers," he added, seemingly indicating that a reunion is in the near, as opposed to distant, future. "Getting onstage and singing 'Dance the Night Away' -- let me tell you how difficult that isn't going to be."

Of course, if Eddie does let his punk arse back in, it begs the question: "Who is more foolish, the fool or the fool who follows him?"

I'm just waiting for the follow-up album with Gary. :p

I don't know, Michael Anthony was out promoting his barbaque sauce, but maybe Eddie has to raise some more money because of his divorce, and his wife getting 1/2 of what he had.

Yeah Dave is a pompous ***, like most lead singers that I know. But it's showbiz ya know. I would go see them, just to see Eddie back in action. It would be interesting to observe any tension on the stage if any. Most Van Halen fans I know want to see the original line-up again. Some rumors I have heard say they kicked out Gary Sharron for being gay? (not that there's anything wrong with it) I thought it was poor record sales. Funny how rumors have a life of their own.

Van Halen III is actually my favorite VH album. That's partly because Gary kept a low profile and let Eddie do his thang and the album's got some of the best guitar work he's done in years. And it's partly because those songs don't get played ad nauseum until you're sick of them.

I've never heard that rumor about Gary; I wonder if it's p***ed-off mullet-wearin' fanboys spreading that because they're homophobes? I don't know or care who (or what) he prefers, but I can see a lot of VH fans making an issue of it.

I used to prefer the older Roth stuff, but the Hagar songs sound better every time I hear them. And Sammy hasn't been making an arse out of his fat arse for several years now, either. ;)

Every two or three years VH needs the publicity, so they draw straws to see if it's gonna be Dave or Sammy this time around. Like times past, nothing will come of this because DLR is an a**hole and Eddie, Alex and Micheal won't put up with it (again). Way to further yourself (again) from being the best rock group ever.



This thread got me laughing because I thought of the "Family Guy" where Peter referred to Eddie's ex-wife as "Valerie Bertandernie".

I'd said there is little chance of this happening. Every interview I ever with Eddie it seem like his got just as big an ego as Dave does (but lacks Dave's flamboyant personality). As to how they stuck together as a band as long as they is beyond me. And like a number of other folk have said Dave is an *** and a lunatic on top everything.

Plus if Eddie boots Sammy again there's no way Sammy will ever play with Van Halen again. Sammy seemed pretty hurt about being kicked out in '96 (or was it '95?). I'm surprised he agreed to come back at all.

there was an issue of classic rock magazine sometime last year here in the uk which ran two interviews, one with roth and one with hagar. roth said some pretty harsh things about the members of van halen and hager and hagar seemed to hint that certain membeer or members of van halen would see hell freeze over before working and/or touring with roth again.

given what was aid then i can't see this happening, unless there are some very big changes of heart in the van halen camp.

Yeah just listen to the song "Without You", how many freaking solo's does Eddie take is it two or three? :rolleyes:

True but did you ever think Sammy would have rejoined before he did???

They should infuse some youth into the band...maybe kick out Mike Tony and hire Wolfgang Van Something.
