Wonder if Mike and Sam will ever record again? Just the two of them? B/C as far as VH, it's probably over. Can't see Sam ever rcd'g with EVH again. And DLR probably will never get a chance, either. Another post discusses Ed and his cancer out of remission. That is terrible if that's the case. Hopefully, he's doing the things necessary to keep his health afloat.

BTW, I've lately been listening to VH3. Anyone have an opinion on it, other than "it sucks"? Dunno, it is starting to grow on me, as far as, well, it's neither Dave nor Sam, but for what it is, different, not terribly bad. Like Fair Warning was different from the VH 1 and 2. W/C/F; that was a dark album as well. Actually, if one listens closely, there is a dark thread in some of the music, starting with VH1, moving on to 2, Women, and comes full circle with F/W. Eddie's doing? Then, Diver down comes out, all those covers, and it seems to pick up, the mood of the music. 1984, as well as D/D, slick, commercial. 5150-very slick. Uplifting, mood wise. One can hear it in the music/playing of Ed. DLR was out, and it improved his overall mood. Then it continued. But I digress...

Back to VH3. Overall, for what it is, good music. Different than what VH fans would expect from the old VH. Both Dave and Sam. More "serious", lyrics quite different. But not BAD. Mike A's bckgrd vox not as prominent as previous releases, but meshes decently with Cherone. I posted on the where is Eddie that I thought it was his solo with Mike, Al, and Cherone. Mmm, it's "VH". Wonder if Cherone had stuck around how the next cd would've came out?

To quote David Lee Roth " Its like when moons and suns mix it up and trees blow to the air and feel the cool heat of the water of the sand to be extremely augmented by fish and birds to when solar eruption is forgiven to be blatent running feverishley to pull at capitalism " hey he said it i didnt. :?

POST-VAN HALEN HAGAR IS 'LIVIN' IT UP':

April 18, 2006

Sammy Hagar is gearing up for summer with a new album and a tour about to begin. Two years removed from a Van Halen reunion tour, the Red Rocker says he realized the importance of performing the band's classic material, so he's bringing VH bassist Michael Anthony out on the road for a nightly mid-set digression, billed as "The Other Half," into all things Van Hagar.

"We're really having fun with stuff and after the last Van Halen reunion, it doesn't feel much like that may ever happen again for all kinds of reasons," Hagar says. "But I just think I need to play those songs, the fans need to hear those songs and it's just unfair to let it sit and die."

Current plans call for Anthony to arrive on stage about an hour into the Hagar and Wabos (recently shortened from Waboritas) set with his legendary bass solo extravaganza, before the two Van Halen members jam for 60 minutes in a retrospective filled with hits and even a few obscure tunes. Hagar says the idea for "The Other Half" stems from last year's annual Cabo Wabo Cantina birthday party in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, when Anthony showed up onstage unannounced.

As for his next studio album, dubbed "Livin' It Up," the 58-year-old artist says he's shopping it to labels. However, fans will hear about a half-dozen of the songs on the 36-date tour, which begins May 5 in Lake Tahoe, Nev.

"Livin' it Up" is really a lifestyle record," Hagar says. "It's not a metal record at all. I would say it's more American country rock than heavy metal rock, which is the type of music I've always played from Montrose through Van Halen. My intention was to just make a real honest record."

Written over the past year at his home in Cabo San Lucas, the album features original songs such as "One Sip and You'll Surrender" and "The Way We Live," as well as a rocking honky-tonk cover of Toby Keith's "I Love This Bar" and his version of the Staple Singers' "I'll Take You There."

While Hagar's solo prospects appear bright, that's not the case with Van Halen.

"There were some real problems in the band," Hagar says, referring to the reunion tour. "I have to tell you, there were nights I didn't know what song Eddie [Van Halen] was playing. There were times I wanted to kill that guy for what he was playing. I would have left that tour in the middle of it if it wasn't for the professional aspect. He's never going to see my ass again unless he goes and gets himself some help."

Eddie killed Van Halen, bottom line. Plus Roth is an idiot too, at least Hagar can form coherent sentences.

Sad, for us VH fans. I will still listen to my VH cd's. I bought pretty much all of them thru BMG online. And since the 1st 5 or so aren't long, will listen while in the garage, around the home, etc. And will remember the musical magic that was VH. And Van Hagar as well. But now, forget it. Ed is probably content to living out his days like he is. Alex should moonlight with other musicians. Sam and Mike sound like this could be a more permannent thing. Weren't they supposed to be starting a band with Neal Schon and Dean Cassanova? 4 years ago? B/F the Roth and Hagar tour? The Sam and Dave tour? Hmm.

Yep, Alex should play music with others, Roth will always be a bumbling, ranting goof ball, and Ed stuck up in his mansion/studio creating the masterpiece ppl will never hear. Or it'll be too late, and no one will care.

I read an interview with Mike recently and he said that Eddie wanted to sing the background more and was pushing him away, also Mike didn't even play bass on It's About Time, he just came in and sang the background vocals on it, that's it. What the hell has happened to Eddie? I picture him turning into Howard Hughes and sitting in his mansion 24/7 without shaving, bathing etc.

I think alot of it has to do with when he and Val split up! yah gotta remember she was there for alot of ups and downs and all three singers and all the BAD SH%T as well. and now its really just him and Alex thats it hell they havent been on Warner Bros for years . they dont even have a record deal anymore unless Varney wnats to Gamble on them!!

Well, if you read on the Jake Forum, under "this doesn't look good", you'll see a pic of Ed and a female at the Oscars 2 months ago. He looks like Dungberry, and others have said so as well. So, sure, he's probably envisioned himself some sort of musical maestro or whatever, and seems happy to be in his mansion/recording studio, un clean, and playing music. Alex is married (still?), and probably has other interests. Maybe he golfs. But the great VH will probably never resurface. The Van Hagar reunion bombed, the 1st, 2nd, 3rd attempts with Roth bombed, and that's that. Maybe Ed should get Gary Cherone back with Alex, Ed plays bass, and they go for VH IV!!! :roll: Just kidding.... :lol:

I agree but my opinion is he brought this all on himself, but you know that's life, some people are like that, rich or not. It sucks cause I think if they got their act together VH would still be a major force. A lot of people think their decline is cause they won't reunite with Roth, but read an interview with that guy and you'll see why it will never happen, throw Eddie's problems in there and, well, it doesn't look good. I prefered Sammy anyway.
