Van Halen Aint Talkin Bout Breakup

Last July when VH finished the 75 date $93 million reunion tour we thought that it was the end for a while. The band had David Lee Roth whose ego after 75 concerts must have needed a tour bus by itself. The bass player was Eddie VH son the 17 year old Wolfgang. Who would want to party with their dad at 17? Well it turns Dave and Eddie got along well, Wolfgang’s dad is Eddie Van Halen. There was news today there will be a next step. Sometime this summer, Eddie and Dave are going to make new music as Van Halen, and they will tour again. This would be their first collaboration in around 25 years. We know that these guys probably seen the light flickering out on their careers and this reunion tour was the big payday and jolt needed to stay relevant. There were not alone as you don’t average over a million a show if there is no interest. The only wonder is if age had mellowed the individuals enough to stay as part of the team. When a band is formed it becomes this us against them mentality, then it turns to what do I need these guys for they are all here to see me. Twenty five years later we wonder if they look back and say we could have been respected like the Rolling Stones and U2. We will never know what could have been and can only hope that what is to come is a continuation of the magic from the beginning.
