I’m not even going to post that Roth made recently appealing to the band to bring back Michael Anthony

Dude, Link!

And with that, without reading said link, THAT is NOT going to sit well with Eddie at all. "How dare you try to replace my son!"

David Lee Roth Wants Michael Anthony Back in Van Halen

Quote
There’s once again drama in the world of Van Halen, with singer David Lee Roth complaining about a recent lack of activity and communication within the band, and openly calling for a reunion with original bassist Michael Anthony.

In a wide-ranging (and frankly, downright inspiring) interview with Rolling Stone that primarily documents his recent adventures living in Japan, Roth declares that he’d love to make more music with Van Halen, but laments that it’s been over a year since their last tour and says that he’s “not sure what’s in (guitarist) Ed (Van Halen)’s mind at this point.”

(In fairness, it should be remembered that Eddie Van Halen underwent emergency surgery for diverticulitis at an unspecified point last year, a procedure that carries an estimated four to six month recovery period.)

Roth also goes on to explain that he and Eddie “haven’t written a new song in 20 years,” and suggests that the group’s 2012 album ‘A Different Kind of Truth‘ was comprised of even more reworked material than most originally suspected: “Almost all of the music that you hear on our most recent album was written and demoed before the first album.”

In the most eyebrow-raising part of the interview, “Diamond Dave” also calls it “a disappointment” that the group hasn’t reunited with Anthony, who wasn’t invited back — and in fact, was replaced by Eddie’s son Wolfgang — when the group reconfigured with Roth for a tour in 2007.

“What we have at our fingertips is arguably one of the greatest high tenor voices ever — that was in Michael Anthony,” Roth explains. “In our tiny little corner of the universe, that voice is as identifiable as the high voice in Earth, Wind & Fire, as identifiable as the high voice in the Beach Boys… so I would always look forward to that reunion.”

Anthony is currently a member of Chickenfoot alongside Van Halen’s second singer, Sammy Hagar. Wolfgang’s mother, actress Valerie Bertinelli, told Detroit’s WRIF back in March that the lure of playing with his son is what brought Eddie Van Halen out of his long break from touring and recording.

Why is Roth rocking a boat that has proven to be so easily capsized in the past? A sense that time is not exactly in his favor anymore seems to be his primary motive: “For me, 60 is the new 80. You oughta see my X-rays. So get going, start heading north. And whether we accomplish anything or not becomes beside the point. The goal is to get with somebody and get with a group or team or a squad and get going on something that everybody’s contributing to.”

Thanks for the link. Yeah, I can see Dave's tenure in the band ending sooner rather than later, especially after going on record wanting Mikey back in he band. Like I said a few post back, the guy that's gonna have to step up and get this done is Alex. I think Wolfie would actually step aside for this. I've never seen him as the problem, it's always been Eddie.

Someone needs to post a great version of A Different Kind of Truth tour concert. Most of the ones I've found on YouTube for whatever reason. Whether it's shaky cam footage or horrible audio (high trebles or lows bass), I haven't found one worth sitting through yet and I'd like to be able to watch and see how they performed on that tour more than anything else.

JOHN 5 AND THE CREATURES WITH MICHAEL ANTHONY - Somebody Get Me A Doctor WHISKY 2/11/2015


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d4hi-cEYiwk&list=PLp2e7UfInEgmB-5r4rtQOEsq-H-mNmQhk&index=21

Obviously this isn't VH live, but with Michael joining John 5 onstage, is there any more reason enough to get him back in Van Halen now? The dude's voice is just so f*cking good. Why Eddie wouldn't want to take him back and really bring back that vintage sound is beyond me. This clip alone should wake Eddie the f*ck up. Hopefully.

Well, just punch me in the head. I’m not sure why I ordered Van Halen live at Tokyo Dome after I heard the one horrible cut that was released a few weeks back. I might have because the library is really in a dry spell of late. Not much in my queue at all. So why not.

Well, recently I saw the band perform on the Jimmy Kimmel show and it was phenomenally appalling again. Like the sound bite, the visual performance was similar. Sounds like the musicians are awesome, but Diamond Dave completely shreds up any kind of singing talent in the band.

I see a few die hards fans that are trying in vain to defend what they are hearing. IMO, they come off as idiots. This is really a head scratcher on why this product is being put out.

I saw the performance yesterday and I thought Dave was horrible. Eddie, Alex and Wolfie were great. VH hasn't always been the best Live band out there when Dave is front and center. They were good in the 80s for sure. But since the Reunion Tour, I have found Dave to very lazy on stage. He makes no effort to even sing in key or even in the right spot. He's too preoccupied with prancing on stage to even give a f*ck. I haven't even been able to get through any bootleg concerts of theirs in the last few years. With that said, I really wish and hope that the original four (talkin' bout Michael Anthony) will reconvene and do another album together and go out tour. Mike covers up a lot of the vocal issues that Dave clearly has and has always had.

And David is still hard to listen too and watch. Good gawd his stage movements are just... weird.

Serious problems here. Eddie and the band can sound great, but if 50% of it sounds like a weasel getting stepped on, THAT can ruin the whole experience. I've said it before... I'm a sound (and video) snob. Even intermittent issues can ruin the whole experience.

I'll pick up the Tokyo CD soon. I have a sneaking suspicion I'll know very quickly on what to take from it.
