Eddie Van Halen‘s wife Janie has revealed a new photo of her and Eddie’s dog Kody Van Halen in a ‘food coma’ after Thanksgiving. She wrote, “#FridayFeeling after #toomuchturkey #foodcoma.” She also wrote on Thanksgiving, “Laughter to cheer you. Those you love near you. And all that your heart might desire.”
Eddie Van Halen was reportedly hospitalized recently according to TMZ after a bad reaction to throat cancer medication with Motley Crue tweeting a sad photo, but right after getting out he jammed with his son Wolfgang Van Halen. With David Lee Roth’s status in Van Halen uncertain after a reunion tour fell apart, fans on the VHLinks.com forums have speculated on if Myles Kennedy would make a good singer for the band.
Japeape posted, “Myles seems like such a humble, nice dude, yet i can’t listen to his stuff with Slash or that Alter Bridge thing. It all just sounds so generic to my ears. The first two solo Snakepit albums that Slash did, were really good. But at some point, he just became this boring writer with boring songs. Just my opinion.”
EJC wrote, “Man, when are people going to accept the fact that Eddie Van Halen is a guy in his mid 60s battling cancer. VH is not coming back with another singer. I’d rather see Wolf go play with Myles Kennedy or Tremonti or whatever and Ed can just chill the rest of his life.”
Some fans want Sammy Hagar, who begged for prayers in a sad new video, back in Van Halen, but he is busy with his band The Circle promoting their album ‘Space Between.’ Hagar revealed why he produced the album at the Grammy Museum recently, “”Normally, I get criticized by a lot of producers, because I’ll go in and I’ll do three vocal takes. I know my lyrics when I go in. I’m not reading lyrics when I’m in the studio, because you’ve got to study your songs so when you sing it, you can mean it. You’ve got to be telling the story. I’ve got my stuff together when I walk into the studio… A lot of guys [will ask], ‘Just give me one more.’ I go, ‘Why? I’d rather be doing something else.’
This time, I didn’t do that. I tortured myself… I honestly didn’t feel like trying to explain what was in my head to anyone, so I went in and started doing it myself… I could see the vision. When you can see light at the end of the tunnel, when you have an idea that you can see to the end of it and you see the whole picture, you’ve got to go to work to do it, but I saw that, and I heard it in my head and I was ready. I’m really happy with it. I’m satisfied — the first time I’ve ever had a record that I don’t listen to now and go, ‘Oooh, I could’ve sang that one more time.'”
