and it didn’t last long again.

I asked only a little over two weeks ago how long the “pure magic” as Eddie described it after the first rehearsal would last for the reformed Van Halen.

At the same time Diamond Dave was telling Rolling Stone magazine…

God willin’, and the creek don’t run dry, just like Grandma Roth used to say…Barring any act of God or Ferrari … yeah. I have hope and faith, and that’s more than just the name of a couple of strippers from Albuquerque. David Lee Roth

It looks like the planned 40 date tour of the US scheduled for this later this year is off – or postponed indefinitely. And there’s talk that the band’s performance at next month’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony may not go ahead as planned.

Spent a bit of time since the reunion was announced listening to some classic old Van Halen shows – including Goldenwest Ballroom ’76, Magic Mountain ’77, Live In Largo ’82, Cow Palace ’84. But I really didn’t get my hopes up that we’d see the return of the glory years 🙁
