In the video, Diamond Dave tells us those rumors of tension amongst Van Halen are bullshit.
An unnamed insider close to the band told Rolling Stone that the band’s members “hate each other” and that “the band is arguing like mad. They are fighting.”
Not so, says Dave.
“The band is getting along famously, better than we have in quite some time,” he says. “We’ve bit off way more than we could chew when it came to scheduling. The band is winning but our schedule has been sidelined for unnecessary roughness. If we continue past July 4 and all the way into Australia and Japan, then we’re asking for the robot-zombie tour when you start getting a lot of ‘yes’ questions.
“You don’t wanna get to that point. And we’re nowhere near that point. But we’re gonna take a break and we’re gonna come all the way back around, because this tour is gonna take us about two years.”
