he can't sing live anyways, so why pay the outrageous prices for tickets.
The guy from The Atomic Punks/Metal Skool, Ralph smokes Dave. Watch them and save your cash.

He seemed to do pretty well on the current VH rehearsal footage on YouTube.

DLR attempted a reunion of his original solo band a few years ago but Vai and Sheehan just aren't interested.

I think they really dug them music, both of them were suddenly playing to huge audiences. But why do you think it was so short lived?

It's probably more to do with the fact that Steve and Billy are still making a successful career in the industry and don't need to re-hash a has-been tour to get the money in

Steve i would certainly imagine is more concerned about the music he is going to write than dwelling on the music he has written!!

Roth became very controlling during the Skyscraper album. Billy and Steve aren't going to say anything bad about anyone. Whatever feelings they have for him, they know that they can't work with him.

I think they both made a choice to make the music that they want to make, and not concern themselves with being commercially successful.

Are you sure? I'm pretty sure I read/ saw an interview with Steve where he was asked about roth/ van halen and said he would be willing to do more work with roth...

Maybe I am wrong. At the same time, I hope that the Van Halen tour is successful enough to bring them all to Australia before it splits up. Once I have seen them, it can be time for a break up and then a Vai/ Sheenan/ Roth/ Bissonette super reunion!!!
