I'm surprised that they have 4 new songs off the album in the set. Not that they don't deserve to be there, it's just that most bands usually only have 1 or 2 new songs and just play the old stuff to fill out the set. So, I give this Set List an A+.

Well, they ended up cancelling their remaining tour dates for 2012, which was a while ago. Supposedly they have a tour lined up for Japan in June, but even that is in doubt as Eddie recovers from surgery.

I never heard of him being close to death. Was this reported at the time? All I heard was he was in and out of surgery. Nothing more to the story. So that is news to me. Yikes.

Yo, I tried watching the Live In Pittsburgh show and all I was getting was nothing but deep bass. So much so that Eddie, Dave and everything else was drowned out by it. It might be my receiver. Not sure. I was playing with the settings, but it wasn't doing anything to improve the sound. Is it Bass-heavy on your end?

will have to check.

yeah Eddie was very lucky he got to the doctor when he did....or the tour would have been over permanently.

Here's what happened.  Normally this diet wouldn't kill you but because he had a undiagnosed condition...the results were nearly catastrophic.

"the 57-year-old guitarist was rushed to hospital for emergency surgery prompting the cancellation of Van Halen's remaining tour dates while he takes six month to recover.

Now details of his injury have emerged, suggesting he was on the brink of death after trying a cayenne-based detox diet which caused his intestines to "explode".

The controversial diet replaces food with a liquid mix of fruit, maple syrup and cayenne pepper. It promises fast weight loss, but almost killed Eddie instead. "

Wolfgang Van Halen on Life in the Spotlight: ‘There Will Always Be the Haters’



Quote
Growing up in one of rock’s preeminent musical families with a classical composer’s first name, Wolfgang Van Halen was probably destined to be a musician before he was big enough to pick up a bass — but as he pointed out during a recent interview, he says that was still able to find his own path.

“My dad introduced me to AC/DC before I could even talk,” Van Halen recalled to Noisecreep. “But the band that I found on my own that I truly fell in love with was Blink-182.”

The draw, he explained, was the power trio format. “I loved the idea that they had two lead singers, and the vocal harmonies they use. I also started playing drums first, and Travis Barker is amazing,” he enthused. “I would play along to all of the Blink-182 records. The other thing I loved about the band was that it was a trio like Muse or the Police. Three people getting it done. I love it.”

After switching from drums to guitar, Wolfgang joined a power trio of his own: Van Halen, which found itself without a lead singer after Sammy Hagar‘s second departure following their 2004 tour. “I switched to bass because it was the only position open in Van Halen,” he laughed. “I didn’t really get into the bass until we started messing around in the studio for about a year before the 2007 Van Halen tour. We rehearsed for a long time and at first it was just fun, and then when we got Dave [Lee Roth] involved, it got really serious.”

That tour ended up forging a musical bond that’s gone on to become an important part of his career outside Van Halen, too. “I’ve always been a huge Alter Bridge fan, and on the 2007 Van Halen tour we happened to be in the same city, so I went to go see them play and we met for the first time. We got along really well and kept in touch after that,” Wolfgang explained. And after guitarist Mark Tremonti found himself without bassist Brian Marshall for a tour in late 2012, he knew who to call.

“I was flattered that Mark thought of me for the gig, but he asked me out of nowhere,” Van Halen recalled. “I called my dad and asked him what he thought. He said, ‘F— yeah! It would be awesome.’ That’s all I needed to hear. So I called Mark back and told him I was in. My first show as a member of Tremonti was in New Jersey the day after I joined.”

Joining a band with a pre-existing fanbase can be tough for a musician, but it’s something Wolfgang is accustomed to. “At first they were all surprised, but they’ve been so nice to me on Twitter and Facebook,” he said when asked about how Tremonti’s fans have treated him. “There are always the haters, but that’s the way the Internet is anyway. I’m sure people will complain about our interview here. What can you do?”

I find it hugely hypocritical of Eddie to go "F --- yeah" when Wolfie asked his father for his blessing to tour with Alter Bridge, and yet Eddie more or less fired Michael Anthony for doing side projects on his own. It has nothing to do with him playing with Sammy, but everything to do with Mikey seeking creative output outside the VH camp. How is that fair?

Yea, I was surprised to see that too. Then again, I’m pretty sure Eddie is batshit crazy. Anything out of his mouth should be responded with a head tilted to the side. Why oh why does Roth continue to hold onto a thread?

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