So Van Halen is touring again and will have almost the original lineup. Original bassist Michael Anthony will not be with them, but aren’t David Lee Roth and Eddie Van Halen really the faces of Van Halen back when anyone cared?
Anyway, all the news stories, print and TV, have featured 23+ year-old photos of the band. I guess because that’s the last time Roth was with them. But still, given things like this and this, it’s a bit misleading to have the still youthful pics of the band in the mid ‘80s displayed in stories about their alleged 2007 tour. I don’t think the pictures of this tour will be quite so glamorous.
And by the way, the 1979 VH show the band put on here may have been the worst concert I ever attended. (It was also the last one I ever saw at the Armory before the PCCC was built.) So excuse me if I miss them this time around.
