Here we go again. It seems that Van Halen is gearing up for a summer tour in 2007. I know, I know, we have heard this before. I don’t care, I love Van Halen and I am ready to listen to any and all rumors about the band, especially if it includes the rumored return of David Lee Roth to sing lead on the tour. That is the other rumor going around. Apparently the VH boys and DLR are negotiating and DLR will tour with Van Halen. There will be no new album or any future albums. This appears to be a pure money making venture and once again, I don’t care.
Unfortunately, it seems that bassist Michael Anthony has left the band or at least will not be on the tour. It has been confirmed, however, that Eddie Van Halen’s son, Wolfgang, has been rehearsing and writing with his dad and Uncle Alex and will play the bass on the upcoming tour.
Now, I love Michael Anthony, but if anyone is replaceable in Van Halen, it is him. We have already seen that DLR is only somewhat replaceable and Eddie and Alex are irreplaceable. It would be very interesting and cool to see the traveling Van Halen family with David Lee Roth at an arena near you.
So there is your Van Halen getting back together with DLR rumor of the month. Stay tuned to Incongruent-Affect for further updates as well as your Guns ‘n’ Roses Chinese Democracy release date speculation.
