You finally know you are starting to get old when:
Bands you used to love start doing re-union & comeback tours.
1.) Diamond Dave, who’s had his share of trials & tribulations during his career for sure, is going to back together with Van Halen for summer of 40 concerts. After 20 years of being on a solo career. I always reallyreallyreally hated Sammy Hagar so that’s cool in a way, but there’s more:
That strangely your-dad-like-looking-beardy-wierdy Michael Anthony is not playing bass in VH anymore but instead Eddie Van Halen’s 15-year old son Wolfgang will be on the bass. ‘Scuse me? And wasn’t Wolfgang actually also the name of Eddie’s guitar somewhere along the way? I am too disgusted to look that up now but who cares.
2.) I am not sure if this is even worse or not but apparently Zack de la Rocha is going back together with Rage Against The Machine for some gigs, or at least for the Coachella festival.
Audioslave sucked from beginning so it’s good if that stops them from existing but didn’t Zach leave RATM for some hard-core political agenda against commercial everything etc.? So what’s up with he joining them again? You ran out of money (and your political agenda) or what, dude?
Apparently Audioslave broke up today, February 16th! Hooray! But wait, does this mean that Soundgarden will reunite?
