John 5 on Van Halen: "THEY are writing right now at 5150. EDDIE is on fire."
Friday, 28 May 2010

Shredding mastermind John 5 (http://www.john-5.com) recently joined the Hard Rock Nights (http://hardrocknights.wordpress.com) radio program to talk about his new solo record, The Art Of Malice, and working with Rob Zombie, David Lee Roth, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Rob Halford, Lita Ford, etc.
John talks about working with David Lee Roth on his DLR Band CD at 1:59 into the interview. Then at 5:06 they ask him about Eddie…
Q: “Now Dave, of course, is back in Van Halen, last we heard…”
A: “Yes.”
Q: “Have you met Eddie? Have you gotten to sit down and talk with him any?”
A: “Oh yeah me and Eddie are good friends. He’s a great guy, you know, he’s doing great, playing great and looks great. He’s on fire right now. They’re writing right now, at Eddie’s place - at 5150 - and he is on fire right now.”
Hard Rock Nights is a weekly syndicated radio program broadcast on a number of rock and metal stations across the internet and the FM dial.

However, this is good news.

he said this too about his album
"Ya Dig" comes from working with the master or frontmen David Lee Roth and also features Billy Sheehan on bass. "That is Dave's saying and it fits the music," says John 5.

This was too funny, by edwardv:

Here's the recording.......Hello this is Van Halen. Thanks for calling. Please listen carefully because some of the prompts have changed. Press 1 for info on new EVH guitars and amps. Press 2 for tee shirts and guitar picks, press 3 for coffee mugs and hats, press 4 to cuss out Ed, press 5 to hear Up For Breakfast, press 6 to hear some of the thousands of riffs in the vault, if you still need assistance press 0 because that's exactly what Van Halen does 0

:D

ftr, John 5 said months ago that Dave was on his new album, then, he wasn't. Or, at least not vocally. These musicians give a tidbit here and there and it ends up on the internet and spreads like wildfire. OMG! Van Halen has new music! Immediately fans start clamoring. Well some of you do anyway, not me. I'd take it with a grain of salt just yet. Nothing is for sure.

Nope, not buying it...Even if it happens, I'm not buying it.

Van Halen was the best rock band of all time, but now they are a mere punch line to a joke that hasn't been written yet.

I'll listen to it, but i'm not dropping a penny on Van Anything ever again.

Now for my encore, I'll take a whiz on the electric fence... :)

Ouch! That might smart a little bit Cat. lol

easy there pardner!

I'm with ya about not spending another dime on anything Halen.

Wonder if the reason why John 5 felt the need to tell us that Ed is playing again is because he's been teaching him?:D

So what, he's writing again. He's supposedly been doing that everyday for umpteen years. For all we know, he could be writing a grocery list.

yeah ed could learn a thing or two from John. No his music might not be the best or most appealing ever, but he does come across as genuinely loving making music. it's been said that he'll do sessions for a sandwich. probably an exaggeration, but nonetheless his enthusiasm for music is awesome.

The scam that Ed's realised that not many people are holding their breathe anymore and that he needs word to get out that something's on the horizon, even though it isn't.
He's talked to much crap that never ended up materializing so he knows that he won't be taken seriously. Hello John5.

Sorry to say, but I don't get your point there. You're one of the guys that do not believe VH 4.0 will release new music this or in the next few years - maybe never you'd add there. So why keep saying that EVH is just talking "crap"? You, among many others here, can't control his mouth or acts, can you (singular and plural)?

And I ask; why worry with Edward and his band in the current days? Sadly, you're all off! ;)

Simon, I don't get your reply to my point... I'm confused.:confused:

Humberto, being a real fan doesn't mean that you need to blindly worship the band and kid yourself with severe denial. I'm a huge Classic Black Sabbath fan... Doesn't mean that I think that they'll record a new album... It won't happen.
I'm a huge Led Zeppelin fan, but I don't have the false hope that they'll record a new album, even thought that word got out that they would.
You can't laugh at our faces, because so far Van Halen has put out nothing, which kind of goes along with what we've been saying the whole time.

As for the picture... So what that Ed's sitting by a mixing board with a guitar? I can do that too, doesn't mean that I'm realising a new album. He needed pictures for his myspace, and that's what he got. That photo proves nothing of him writing new material... He's not even playing the guitar.

i1sum2!
June 3rd, 2010, 07:35 AM
Threads like these, I'm always reminded of Ed's comment of "Having ten albums in the can". One would think that with having that much material, that they would have already put vocals to at least one of 'em by now!:tounge:

Never fear, sum's here to rain on your parade!

From the files:

Dave's not even allowed on the premises. Hasn't been since shortly before the wedding.

They did try to work on new music, but Ed simply thinks Dave does not have it anymore. Thinks dude CANNOT sing. No live DVD from the "successful" reunion tour? Ed won't release it. Why? Again - according to Ed - Dude cannot sing and the performances were insulting to the legacy of VH. I saw three of the shows and live, it was awesome in the moment...playback was indeed a different story. Gotta side with Ed on this one. You can't replace primal screams with inhaled yelps and Liza Minelli vibrato.

ED is indeed writing at his place, does it every day....but Dave AIN'T singing on any of it.

The next time you hear VH live - it will be on another cash-grab nostalgia tour, and no - there ain't gonna be any new tunes.
Sorry kids, that's just the way it is.

Humberto, we don't several threads a day linking to your blog. everyone understands how enthusiastic you are about VH, you don't have to go around asserting that. I'm not going to critique you on your english, I'll just say take your time typing it out. there's never a reason to rush these things.

Punk, you're a mod so i'm hardly one to critique you. You've been good. Just relax man. You've been around here long enough to know we go through these phases. Life's too short to get upset over what people say on the internet.

Is it a big deal? Yes and No. However, if you are going to start yapping on and on like you know what your talking about, PLEASE, do me a favor. Get your bias right.

Van Halen isn't selling anything. Isn't that the problem?

Oh wait, I spaced. Mike eagerly giving Sammy a hardy reach around and NOT singing back up vocals and playing mediocre bass for a band he gave up on, is your problem. My bad ;)

and coming soon...EVH D2H

This isn't about Van Halen per say. It's all about Eddie Van Halen. You hate the guy! That hate and rage for him has you all twisted up, blinded and talking gibberish.

Somehow, I'm being led around by the nose? Led where and why me?

Dave is Eddie's Bitch! That was the argument not that long ago. BUT WAIT, now Eddie's bitch is banned from 5150. Which is it? Eddie's bitch or in exile? He can't be both..... or can he? :57:

Somehow a reputable source told you that Dave's been kicked to the curb at another VH site. Was this one of those "friend of a friend had told his cousin during some sweet pillow talk with his other cousin, a 40 something unemployed mama's boy living in mama's basement using mama's bandwidth" reputable sources?

AND DWEEZIL and JOHN 5 are the liars? Hmmmm, Gee, I don't know? People that actually know Eddie Van Halen or some people, that hate Eddie Van Halen as much as you do, typing away on a sticky keyboard in their stained "Watcha Talkn' 'Bout Willis T-Shirt.

But as of now they have nothing, and could care less and as soon as Ed has shit to "road test" or sell they will be back on the road. So what? Are you a dictator ? And just want one side exsposed?

Hi jacked ? I don't see it that way. Its called an opinion!NO, it's called Hijacked. When this thread, like many others on the board, becomes Humberto5150 vs (fill in the blank) cat fight. I call it hijacked. This thread is about what John 5 said in an interview. Believe what he says? It's up tp you to decide, but enough of the pissing contests. I did what I said, I deleted posts that I believe have nothing to do with this thread, period.


...So what if we are not a bunch of VH fools that believe everything they say OR do not say? Your gonna delete one side of the argument just to suit your feelings?.. What argument did I delete? None of the posts I deleted had anything to with the topic of this thread. If someone wants to start a thread from some tid bit of info from a "reputable source," from another VH site. Please do. NO one is stopping anyone. Just don't post a rumor here and tell me it has something to do with what John 5 said, when it doesn't, and expect me to do nothing.

The lovers spat between Sum, you, vhfanjack and Humbreto was dumped. You guys can get a room for that.

Also, like no one knows what your guys opinion of Eddie is. Come on man. You can do better then that.

First Dave is Eddie's bitch, now he is banned from Van Halen land. For all I know, Dave could be living under a bridge, stabbing needles into a EVH Premium Voodoo Doll ($29.99, BTW). Then again he might be writing lyrics for his currant band, Van Halen 4.0.


I think there track record speaks for its self! Rite?!?! Oh yeah, Van Halen's track record. It means nothing. Dave leaving in 1985? You saw that coming from their track record? How about Sammy leaving and then returning? Gary, the musical soul brother? What their track record tells me is "Don't look at their track record." It's Van Halen for God sakes!


YEa despite what i say in my heart i feel they are not done and will do something some time!...I guess we can agree on something.


But as of now they have nothing, and could care less and as soon as Ed has shit to "road test" or sell they will be back on the road. So what?...Yeah, so what?


Are you a dictator ? And just want one side exsposed? Yea go ahead and push your power Mr Mod!...Wow, kind of dramatic there. Yes? Damn, I clean up some riff raff and now I'm KIM JUNG IL. What the fuck?

But you know what? I like the Mr Mod thing. ;)

Lastly, how could one not believe that Dave is Ed's bitch right now? Dave allowed himself to be snipped with a non disclosure agreement most likely and that's why we don't hear a thing from the man. I think that should be pretty obvious to anybody whose following this strange situation of a band. What that person said about Dave not being allowed at 5150, maybe, then again maybe not. He rarely posts, but when he does, he's usually been on the money about things. He's around my age (not that that makes a damn) and has been deeply involved in the L.A. music scene his whole life. He plays a bass. He knows industry types and hears things we don't. I took it with a grain of salt just I do anything else from this band. The recent John 5 tidbit could be nothing more than name dropping for a guitarist with a fledgling career. Dweezil didn't hear an actual recording, but did get to hear Ed play some stuff backstage. Believe who ya want, and I believe who I want. Capiche?

Punk is making a lot of sense on certain aspects discussed, but so is Sum.
If i was an outsider or observer, just now reading this through, i would find this thread pretty damn interesting.

And, about labeling it EVH as opposed to Van Halen is nothing more than semantics, isn't it? We all know where those items are coming from.... uh, yeah, EDDIE VAN HALEN. What's your point? Eddie makes ALL the money for everything with a EVH trademark on it. Van Halen, LTD. is split up with it's members, WHO EVER THEY ARE. It's not a little thing. Again, Rage against Eddie all you, but at least get your "Sell Out" bitching right.


Lastly....THANK GOD!!!

I think that should be pretty obvious to anybody whose following this strange situation of a band.....In Dave's entire career, he did it his way. NOW, he is both Eddie bitch, exiled, shuns the media and is afraid of LAWYERS? That makes no sense.

I took it with a grain of salt just I do anything else from this band.....WHO CARES? What does it have to with John 5's interview? Nothing. Oh, maybe that it fits nicely in this template you have constructed. Start you own thread and you the "FELLAS" can sit around pat each other on the back and roast marshmallow. Also, another thing. Is this the same source that told you that Mikes vocals and bass line were piped in? Was he the one that said that the 2007/2008 VH tour would be canceled? When it comes to credibility about present day Van Halen, IMO, YOU HAVE NONE!


The recent John 5 tidbit could be nothing more than name dropping for a guitarist with a fledgling career. Dweezil didn't hear an actual recording, but did get to hear Ed play some stuff backstage. Believe who ya want, and I believe who I want. Capiche?.....Who slants their view a certain way. Dude, I don't know what Eddie Van Halen did to you personally. BUT damn, it fucked you up.

He molested Sum as a teenager.

Backstage.

At a concert in Kansas City.

The year was 1980.

He lured Sum with the offer of free guitar picks.

Michael Anthony stood idly by.

[QUOTE=punkatomic;247793]NO, it's called Hijacked. When this thread, like many others on the board, becomes Humberto5150 vs (fill in the blank) cat fight. I call it hijacked. This thread is about what John 5 said in an interview. Believe what he says? It's up tp you to decide, but enough of the pissing contests. I did what I said, I deleted posts that I believe have nothing to do with this thread, period.

Some times Humberto needs to be set straight, and if you look back on some past posts all guys like me or Sum, or Jack are doing is just that! And he is the one that starts the shit with us, just because he for some reason feels he knows it all!

I dunno...

Was watching the Ace Frehley video, guess who's in it?
John 5.

"Ace was the guy, the one that made me wanna play...
He's a legend, sounds as good today as he did in 1977."

"Eddie Van Halen was the guy, the one that made me wanna play...
He's a legend, sounds as good today as he did in 1978."

"George Lynch was the guy..."

John 5 is like the Dave Grohl of guitar virtuosos.

You keep saying VAN HALEN is selling this and that. When it's not. IT'S THE EVH brand.

Is it a big deal? Yes and No. However, if you are going to start yapping on and on like you know what your talking about, PLEASE, do me a favor. Get your bias right.

Van Halen isn't selling anything. Isn't that the problem?

Oh wait, I spaced. Mike eagerly giving Sammy a hardy reach around and NOT singing back up vocals and playing mediocre bass for a band he gave up on, is your problem. My bad ;)

Let's get our sell outs straight shall we....

EVH Stripe shoes
EVH Fender Wolfgang guitars
EVH Charvel/Fender "Replica Guitars"
EVH Wah pedal
EVH MXR Flanger
EVH MXR Phase Pedal
EVH Premium Stool
EVH Premium Guitar Strings
EVH Premium Guitar Picks
EVH Premium Guitar Straps
EVH Premium Guitar Sables
EVH Premium Door Stop
EVH 5150 III Amps
EVH 5150 III Amp Head Covers
EVH 5150 III Amp Cabinet Covers
EVH Bourn Low Friction Controls
EVH Wolfgang Bridge Picks Ups
EVH Wolfgang Neck Pick Ups
EVH Frankstein humbucker Pick Ups
EVH D-tuna System
and coming soon...EVH D2H

This isn't about Van Halen per say. It's all about Eddie Van Halen. You hate the guy! That hate and rage for him has you all twisted up, blinded and talking gibberish.

Somehow, I'm being led around by the nose? Led where and why me?

Dave is Eddie's Bitch! That was the argument not that long ago. BUT WAIT, now Eddie's bitch is banned from 5150. Which is it? Eddie's bitch or in exile? He can't be both..... or can he? :57:

Somehow a reputable source told you that Dave's been kicked to the curb at another VH site. Was this one of those "friend of a friend had told his cousin during some sweet pillow talk with his other cousin, a 40 something unemployed mama's boy living in mama's basement using mama's bandwidth" reputable sources?

AND DWEEZIL and JOHN 5 are the liars? Hmmmm, Gee, I don't know? People that actually know Eddie Van Halen or some people, that hate Eddie Van Halen as much as you do, typing away on a sticky keyboard in their stained "Watcha Talkn' 'Bout Willis T-Shirt.

Spanishfly, it's all good!

A-fuckin'-men to that entire post...

I'm still not buying any new releases or concert tickets though, lol.
But I can say honestly that I don't hate the guy (Edward) or find him to be a jerk just because he has gone into the gear biz.

On that note, personal attacks will NOT be tolerated on this board any longer.
We have been very lax in the past and that has created a situation where everyone feels they can be as big an asshole as they want to be...Um, NO, not happening anymore.
You may have been a member of this site for years, but I can assure you, THAT does not give you the right to bully newbies or anyone else around.
Nobody has the right to post here, it's a priveledge, but that is also the priveledge of those who are new to the site as well.
Yeah, you may have been a long time member and you may be well known in these forums. But if you get out of line and start attacking people, including Edward or anyone else in the band...You'll be launched from here, period.
We expect you all to act like an adult and show people the same respect they will show you.
Disagreements are one thing, getting personal and attacking other members with vulgar and rude responses is just plain wrong, AND it's a violation of forum rules.

If this "rains on your parade", tough fucking shit...follow the rules or win a free permanant vacation.

Oh, and if I ban your ass, it will definately be permanant.

And yes, I am on a power trip here because I am sick and tired of the immature bullshit that takes place on this board, and I myself have been guilty.
Point is, nothing changes for the better until a stand is taken, and the mods of this site are ALL taking that stand together.

If you want No Holds Barred...go find the Roth Army, this site will be all about respect in the future. CVH.com is being restored to the standards it held when VHFreak built this place.

Y'all have a nice day!!!

Hey, if you want to abandone ship then be my guest.
But clearly you all have missed the point of the post.

Let me ask you, all of you...Do you remember when you registered here you were required to agree to the forum rules?

Ok, if so, what is so hard about conducting yourselves like an adult and showing the other members of the site some respect?

Nobody is talking about deleting or editing posts, THAT is a no no here, and if it has happened it shouldn't be unless the post was abusive, threatening, or vulgar towards another member.
You can disagree, even debate all you want, but it must be kept civil.

Seriously, does saying you can't attack people mean it'll be run by nazi's?
Is that what draws you to the site?
These are the things that are not going to be allowed to continue, but like I said, if that is a condition of why you come here...See Ya!!!

Van Halen is going to release something soon, believe it or not, and the site WILL gain new members. When that happens they will all know that their contributions, just like all of your contributions, will be appreciated and they will be treated with respect.
In MY personal opinion, this site has lost some very cool members because of the back biting and bitch slapping around here. Folks, that's just not cool.

So take it as far out of context as you choose, this will be a respectable site for VH fans of all ages come hell or high water.
I've gotten way too many PM's over the last few years by decent members that are no longer here simply because of the immature bullshit that goes on by a select few.
This site is not a democracy, the Bill of Right's do not apply, and if you care to review the rules, feel free to do so.

To those who think that enforcing the rules VHFreak set in place is a reason for you to bail...Well, that is your choice, have a great life, and Roth On!!!

By the way, the only amendment that was made by VHFreak was the "sexually-oriented" aspect...he allowed us to have nude threads.

Let's put it in an even simpler context...Write your posts, be them angry or disgruntled, with respect to the persons you are referring to.
Look, this isn't a hard thing to achieve here.

Just don't "word" things as a brutal, vulgar, personal attack.

I can tell you now that once they release new music, love it or hate it, people are going to respond by hitting the web, and they'll end up here.

If you have company coming to your house bringing under age kids do you leave porn mags laying out or create an atmosphere that is unsuitable for the average person?
Well, maybe some of you would, but not me, lol.

Well, this is our house, and I think it's best to represent a welcome atmosphere that says, "Hey, pull up a keyboard and let's celebrate a really cool band"...
Will everyone get along? Hell NO...But agreeing to disagree allowes each member to log out NOT feeling disrespected which will bring them back again.
This idea that we should all go at each others throats so at the end of the day we can be best bud's is bullshit.

The thing to avoid here is that when a good thread gets started, those who drop by to read them won't get bogged down in pages worth of posts that are two people ripping each other to shreds trying to one up each other...this isn't high school for crying out loud. Sometimes I can almost visualise a group of people chanting, "fight, fight, fight, fight"...Man, that's just rediculous, and juvenile to boot.

This is not only what runs good people off, it keeps the people I never see posting anything from posting because they don't want to be attacked or pulled into the stupid ass drama.
We all have enough drama in our real lives, do we really want to spend our online time creating or dealing with more?

Hell, being a Van Halen fan comes with enough drama of its own to add to it on this site.

:57: Something has to change, and I'd hope that you all could understand and see the point.
Everyone here is an individual, with their own personalities, very different and in some cases very difficult personalities...just think about your posts before you hit submit and ask yourself...is this how I'd like to be responded too?
