Think about it. If Dave and no one else is trying to squash these "we need a rest" rumors, it's all be sure to be the end for the band. Where is Eddie? Alex? Wolfie? Valerie? Anyone other than Dave to address this. I would think they know better than to tempt fate with the fans and they should have done a group PSA announcement,

if there truly is no in-fighting....then the travel is just to stressful and exhausting for the guys....I mean they are older...and touring is a GRIND.  It's just drive drive drive, sit around, play, and then do it again....you do that for a couple of months....sitting around the house sounds amazing.

I saw an interview with Joe Bonamassa at his house, and he goes "hey this Joe, and we are filming me at my house....(pause) this is so weird....not taping here....being actually in my house"

these guys from the outside seem like it's the greatest thing ever...the reality is.....it's 2 hours of fun 4 days a week...and the rest is awful and boring, and just not where I think a lot of them want to be anymore.

I think honestly...the reason so many of these young bands can do it...is because they are wasted most of the time...it makes it all fly by.

sober...it's a lot of bullshit

:)

hahahaha

you know back when this came out it was a nightly or near nightly ritual to get home from college around 10 PM (night classes baby!) but yeah I'd pop open a bottle of jack...suck down a few shots and watch this....I loved it then and still do....would it be as killer as maybe a pro-shot 1980 live VH show with Dave at their prime....no.  But we never got that so this was to me a prime example of how strong this band could be without Dave....and I know they even got better.

Mikey's bass solo is hysterical...and almost a waste of 5 minutes....same with the drum solo....for whatever reason Alex's solos have never done much for me....but the songs are so strong....it's great seeing Mike is CLEARLY buzzed by the end of the set!  he's having a blast and so am I  :)

and Eddie shreds throughout (he's at top form here for sure...he seems sober and very happy and healthy) , Sammy sings perfectly...and the songs are all really kick ass.

I'd give this a 4.5 out of 5.

I've NEVER been a fan of Alex's drum solos in concert. And what's worst is that it always happens right after the 2nd or 3rd song. Seriously, who signed off having the drum solo that soon into a concert?

As for Mikey, I loooooove his bass solo!! It's  f u c k i n g  entertaining as hell and a drunk Mikey, even more so!!

Why Can't This Be Love is what got me to pick up 5150 in the first place. It still holds up very well all these years later.

going for this next.

as for 5150

Van Halen got me to buy the album

:)

...I am sure I got it the day I came out...honestly I can't remember a single I'd heard before the record dropped...I am sure there was one....but it was a no brainer buying it....which I am sure was the same for you

:)

So what's the story on these guys. Split? Fighting? Tired?

No idea. I think there is some major infighting going on, but Dave put out a PSA saying they are "tired". With their history, "tired" can mean anything.

This is what Eddie should have done from the get go. They should have done a joint announcement and not leave it to Dave and only Dave, which is going to fan the flames of speculation..........................on my part.
