EDDIE VAN HALEN Was Considering Reunion Tour Featuring DAVID LEE ROTH, SAMMY HAGAR And MICHAEL ANTHONY
November 16, 2020

During an appearance this morning (Monday, November 16) on SiriusXM’s “The Howard Stern Show”, Wolfgang Van Halen revealed that his father, Eddie Van Halen, had contemplated a “kitchen-sink tour” that would have included bassist Michael Anthony, as well as vocal turns from both Sammy Hagar and David Lee Roth. There was even talk about bringing back Gary Cherone, who sang with the band on one poorly received album, 1998′s “Van Halen III”.

Unfortunately, Eddie’s health setbacks, which included injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident as well as a brain tumor diagnosis, prevented the tour from ever taking place. “If only things had been better, it would have been amazing,” Wolfgang said.

Wolfgang also said that his father left “a shit-ton of tapes” of unreleased material that “will take a very long time to go through” and decide if there is anything there that could eventually see the light of day. He added: “That’s not the priority right now. I can’t put a timeline on it. There will be a time we go through it. Not for the foreseeable future.”

Wolfgang said that some of his father’s unreleased material is “ideas that probably aren’t out there for good reason,” but added that “I’m sure there’s amazing shit in there.”
