David Lee Roth explains why Van Halen postponed their tour
May 20th, 2012 under Van Halen. [ Comments: none ]

On Thursday it was announced that Van Halen was postponing their tour, but didn’t say why. So everyone started thinking that the reunited band couldn’t handle being around each other any more. Well David Lee Roth posted a message on Vimeo and explained that they are postponing the tour dates so they can learn Australian for when they go to a land down under. Actually he said that the “schedule has been sidelined for unnecessary roughness.” because the old guys bit off more than they can chew. So basically he is saying they need some rest.

We need to laser remove Van Halen’s Tattoo!
January 10th, 2012 under Van Halen. [ Comments: none ]

Van Halen has premiered their first new single with David Lee Roth in 27 years and they should’ve waited a little longer until they had better song. Some things get better with age, and David Lee Roth with Van Halen is not one of them.


Van Halen is going to tour in 2012 like it’s 1984
December 26th, 2011 under Van Halen. [ Comments: none ]

For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge yeah! Van Halen is hitting the road with David Lee Roth in 2012 and you better Jump at the tickets when they start to go on sale January 10th because they will go fast. You know this tour is gonna be Hot For Teachers and everyone else who spent a big part of their teen years listening to their albums.
Back the ’90s I saw Van Halen with Sammy Hagar and he did Roth’s songs, so I wonder if the Gigalo will do the same Right Here? He would be 5150 if he didn’t. And on that note, what is up with Roth stealing Justin Bieber’s moves???


Sammy Hagar think all the big bands want him

As we all know Sammy Hagar replaced David Lee Roth in Van Halen for a few years and now he is saying that they weren’t the only band who wanted him to replace their lead singer. He told Forbes, “I was asked at one time to be in Mötley Crüe. I was asked at one time to be in Pantera by their mangers. I was asked to be in Velvet Revolver when Scott Weiland quit and went back to the Stone Temple Pilots. I was waiting to be asked to be in Led Zeppelin to say no, since they were the greatest band on earth and no could replace Robert Plant. I was asked to be in Aerosmith and I said no. Certain bands and certain front man singers are more difficult to replace than others. Steven Tyler and that band have stayed together for forty years and you don’t want to walk into something like that. They had one moment years ago, when they replaced Joe Smith, but it’s still always been Steven at the front of Aerosmith. You don’t replace that. When I came into Van Halen, it was easy because Dave wasn’t a great singer, but he was a good front man. We were all lucky that the fans accepted it and it got bigger. I would avoid bands that are going to break up pretty soon.”
I think he has a better chance replacing Tommy Shaw in The Styx (no offense Tommy) than Vince Neil in Motley Crue, don’t you agree?
My reaction when he told the world that he was abducted by aliens is the same to what he shared with Forbes…he has been drinking way too much of his Cabo Wabo.
I am not saying that he is a bad singer, he just isn’t all that. I saw him live with Van Halen and a solo Vince Neil was the opening act and let me tell you I was left unimpressed.
