Is That Really Van Halen?

Van Halen ComebackGreat news: Van Halen is making a comeback.

Bad news: Yahoo makes the announcement with a picture of David Lee Roth and guitarist Steve Vai, not Eddie Van Halen. Vai was Roth’s guitar player when he left Van Halen and went solo. And he was great in the movie Crossroads.

Tip to Yahoo – I’d like to say it’s a simple mistake to make, but it’s really not. Try to have the guy (Eddie Van Halen) who’s responsible for the name of the band (Van Halen) in the picture.

But it’s still good news, even though I think David Lee Roth is an idiot.

  2. Seriously, who doesn’t know what eddie van halen looks like?! Goog googally moogally!

  3. Dan – you would think . . . . What has this culture come to?

    Of course, these days, Eddie’s gonna look really old and feeble.

  4. ummm. 16 year old wolfgang is going to play bass. yeah, that has disaster written all over it. Just imagine what that kid is going to experience on that tour. I predict he and Roth will end up on their own tour in the next two years.

  5. Moth1 – Of course it’s gonna be disastrous. For one, Michael Anthony (the old bass player) is actually the only one in the band that can actually sing. The kid is way too young to be cool (although it is pretty swell that there are now 3 Van Halens in Van Halen – Eddie, Alex and Wolfgang). And there’s no possible way they finish a tour without Dave walking out or Eddie needing to go back to rehab.

    But if they came to Dallas, I would get tickets.
