EDDIE’S fingers aren’t fingers they are muscle-powered pistons that hammer guitar strings to the fretboard with the force of a rivet gun”.

Sheehan, Vai and Bissonette only found out “five to seven days” before the Lucky Strike Live date that Roth had agreed to join them on stage for what was supposed to be two songs: “Yankee Rose” and “Shyboy”. “We hadn’t heard back from [Dave] yet, so we had Ralph in there [ready to go], in case we we didn’t hear,” Billy said. “‘Cause we didn’t know if he would wanna do it at all; we hadn’t talked about it for a long time. So sure enough, finally out of nowhere, Dave says, ‘Yeah, I’ll do it. I’m in.’ [We went], ‘Great!’ So we thought, ‘Should we tell Ralph now? Because we don’t wanna stiff him.’ So we thought, ‘We hope he’ll understand.’ We waited for the night before and then explained to Chuck [Wright, QUIET RIOT bassist and founder of the Ultimate Jam Night free weekly show at Lucky Strike Live] what was going on. Nobody knew; nobody from the club knew Dave [was gonna show up at the venue].”

Billy continued: “So then all panic ensued. And I had to speak to somebody about it, ’cause we had to figure where to put Dave in the meantime, to surprise [the crowd by getting] him on stage. So we had to eventually talk with the people there, and then things started to slip out a little bit. But we wanted to do it in true Lucky Strike fashion — we just walk up on stage and play. No rehearsal, no soundcheck, no nothing. Just go up, plug in and go.”

BILLY SHEEHAN ‘Hasn’t Heard Anything At All’ About Proposed Reunion Of DAVID LEE ROTH’s ‘Eat ‘Em And Smile’ Lineup
July 20, 2017

Bass legend Billy Sheehan says that he “hasn’t heard anything at all” about a proposed reunion of VAN HALEN singer David Lee Roth’s solo band following the cancelation of their November 2015 performance at the Lucky Strike Live in Hollywood.

Roth’s “Eat ‘Em And Smile” reunion at the Lucky Strike Live was called off at the last minute by the fire marshal. The show would have marked the first time in thirty years that Roth joined Sheehan, guitarist Stve Vai, drummer Greg Bissonette (RINGO STARR & HIS ALL-STARR BAND) and keyboardist Brett Tuggle to perform some of the hits from the classic LP. Also scheduled to join the band on stage was STEEL PANTHER vocalist Ralph Saenz (a.k.a. Michael Starr).

Asked in a new interview with Greg Prato of Songfacts if there are any updates about the possibility of a “Eat ‘Em And Smile”-era band reunion, Sheehan said: “Unfortunately, no. We haven’t heard from Dave in a while. I hope he’s doing well. If he changes his mind and decides to do some shows, I’m ready to go, and I think Steve and Gregg feel exactly the same way.
