    Just found a website saying, 'DAVID LEE ROTH IS DEAD', this must be wrong?

    I cannot believe what I am reading. I never wanted to read anything like this.

    I found the website on google.

    It reads:

    David Lee Roth is dead

    Death of David Lee Roth.

    David Lee Roth, born on October 10, 1954 in Bloomington, was an American singer. He died on August 3, 2012, at the age of 57.

    The news has left the world shocked and saddened.



    David Lee Roth
    1954 - 2012



    This sent me into a complete shock.

    Then I started to read over and noticed the date of death was August 3, 2012? That's tomorrow!

    So frantically scanning for other information I read that it says David Lee Roth "anticipated" obituary.

    Wtf is this, this is disgraceful, this must be wrong! so I read more:


    'What is an anticipated obituary?
    An anticipated obituary is, by definition, an obituary written BEFORE the death of a person. It is common for news agencies to keep pre-written obituary for public figures, famous and high-profile people who are still alive.

    It is by no means a death announcement nor an anticipation of death.'


    Fine I thought, it may be common to keep pre-written obituaries, but to publish them on the web is just not right.

    This is so outrageous, it's like an omen or premonition.

    Where is Dave right now? If I were him I would stay in bed on the 3 August, 2012.

    The webpage allows you to leave tributes.

    Do you think Van Halen have lots of pre-recorded demos with Dave singing his vocals?

    Theres probably loads of stuff Dave and the Van Halen's have got that hasn't seen the light of day yet.

    Good idea. Ha to think back then, nobody had heard of mobile phones.

    Shocks like that make you think though. Maybe I should talk to him now, you never know how long any of us have got.

    Well that's true.

    Well they've got Eddie's number too http://en.necropedia.org/obituary/Eddie_Van_Halen

    Seriously, this is just so wrong.

    I guess they make money from advertising or click throughs.

    I don't like how they are trying to profit from someone elses mortality.

    And these dates they put on it. They look like target dates.

    Eddie's is date is currently today, 2nd August, 2012.

    After he's had cancer I find that quite sick.

    So that explains all the silence again!

    Lol

    Guess Ed and Company are shit out of luck!

    That would mean they have to cancel their Japan dates too. No sake for you Joe!

    It's a celebrity death hoax and a poor one. DLR isn't dead but he did insure his sperm? What a character:
