Just spilling out the truth!

OK, giving you my straight (for what it’s worth!) opinion here. Rumour are all over the place about a Van Halen reunion in 2019, involving all of the original guys…which would include Michael Anthony on base. I’m not going to go into a long story about this…it’s all just speculation…or in one of my favorite terms “premature evaluation”! But here is the bare fact…even IF it’s true, I WOULDN’T GO SEE THEM AGAIN!! I absolutely LOVE(D) the original Van Halen, but there comes a time when you just HAVE to realize that you don’t have it anymore, PERIOD! And after hearing David Lee Roth’s vocals in the 2015 tour…the last time the band toured, it WAS NOT pleasant, period! Now, prior to Guns N’ Roses HIGHLY successful “Not In This Lifetime” tour, I went on-air a number of times and said I didn’t think Axl Rose could hold up, between the AC/DC “Rock or Bust” tour, then the GnR tour. Well, I ate crow, BIG TIME! But in this case, I’m damn near willing to bet money on it (maybe not my house, lol) that even IF Van Halen gets back together in their original form…it won’t be any kind of success, and David Lee Roth’s vocals will NOT be good. NOW, on that note…here’s a interesting video, featuring the man himself back in the day, when he could belt it out! And a very unique audio of the actual recording in-studio of some of his vocals…”Runnin’ With The Devil”…stick with the pauses, that’s how it is done.  ~ Ron
