Is that a stripey driveway? Cool! Looking good Ed!
That guitar is so wicked in black!
Incredible how happy/outgoing he has recently become with myspace, twitter, and what not. Remember just a couple of years ago? It sure is a welcome change.
We’re gonna have a tour next year, that’s for sure!
FYI, the official Van Halen site is now on facebook.
I mean the official Van Halen facebook page is up and running. Just had to correct my last post. Peace to all.
AM I DREAMING???????????
Cool striped bascketball court!

He’s the King!
I think this is going to happen!

You can see the reflex of basket on the water!
So nice to see Eddie with a smile on his face. He looks healthy, happy and content. Good to finally see the old Eddie back.
What they need to do is to play what the TRUE LIFELONG FANS WANT TO HEAR…..PAH-LEASE WE’VE ALL SEEN THEM 30,40,50+ times, it’s enough with the same old schtick!!! LONG LIVE the machine that is the MIGHTY VAN HALEN!!!!!!!!!
i am gonna write some thought that come to mind at random:
were gonna finally get alot of van halen publicity now that eddie married a publicist! she builds her new company..and van halen finally connects with the fans!
plus…wolfie is in touch with the younger generation. thats gonna boost it.
but if there is no mystery in van halen…it may backfire and make the band too accessible. oh well…better more than less at this point.
roth is younger than sammy…and i like sammy..sometimes more than roth…but roth is gonna be a better younger payoff.
chickenfoot makes sense.
chad smith playing with a single bass and a simplistic style makes chickenfoot less likely to sound like van halen and less progressive. but, sounding great and classic..like led zep.
mikey can have freedom in the chickenfoot band. its a band that doesnt bear the name of two members or half of a band.
sammy has alot of money. you know he is doing chickenfoot for mike.
plus…its a slight slap in the face to eddie. satriani is a guitar god..and he is more diverse than eddie..and hasnt abused himself like eddie has. of course eddie invented the style that satriani took and turned into his own thing. eddie will always get the credit for that. he has forever cemented his mark as THE guitar god.
but, i think sam and mike know that in a slight way, they are putting pressure on eddie to straighten up..and find himself again. people will make comparisons of eddie and the new van halen to satriani…and eddie isnt the loser type.
its a win win every direction.
but i miss mike in van halen. and ill miss those background vocals!
we will get music from chickenfoot, and music from van halen!
music from sammy! but probably no more music from van hagar for a while.
but i bet you…one day…as eddie realizes his drunken past..and confused anger towards mike and sam(whatever that is!)….he will apologize. wolfy will split off after he makes a name for himself in van halen…and wolfie will tell his dad…”hey dad…get mike back..i dont wanna be the reason the fans cant get that and you should apologize to mike..and i want to go off on my own and be my own man…and i want the respect of not making it off my fathers legacy”.
but you know…i like the progressive style eddie and alex played after hooking up with hagar.
with roth, it was more bee bop 50’s sounding. of course it was a gem…it lacked the ballsy recording the evolved in the late 80’s too. 1984 with roth…was radical! and then roth left! the drums..finally came through in the mix! wow. good for alex!
but mikey only got to show off his pipes..his bass was hidden till f.u.c.k. album.
as usual with van halen, we never get the whole thing that we want. only a partial. never satisfied. never the full thing. never….
and by the way, i thought vh3 was a great album. it just wasnt the expected van halen. but its great. put it back in the big stereo and turn it up loud. van cherone was different, but good. just think of it as a different band youll love it!
Great pics. Now let’s see some with The Diamond One in the pics!!! EVH looks as well as ever. I’ll keep fingers crossed.
He looks well and happy.
Nice work Ed, keep it up.
To see a legend in the studio is a good thing! Need some new tunes, but I still love all the old (no matter who is singing), since I was born I liked guitar music, since I heard eruption (live), I LOVE GUITAR!
Sammyvanroth: If your wife is in labor, it would behoove you to get your ass in there and let her break a few of your fingers or something. That is, unless she doesn’t want you in there.
Anything stupid you do during a woman’s pregnancy is never forgotten.
Oh yeah, and Ed looks good. The man’s come a long way from 2004. I don’t care what you think about him, you have to give him his due on that…..
He looks great. I’m looking forward to the new tour.
I like the new modern look, though someone should tell him that the jeans with knee-holes style is about 20 years off now. 🙂
Whoa I say momma living ain’t a luxury
Whoa I say momma Ain’t A Little Ain’t Enough For me………..
Might could be worked in the next tour setlist somewhere?
There’s a wooden wall next to his mixing console with a lot of “black rectangular objects” on it. Anybody know what those are?
This just keeps getting and better……awesome !!
Hehe, 80’s style dimmer switches for all the lights in the studio! =)
I think those are the decibel scales throughout the studio?
Ben, you see a basket in the puddle ? I see branches, and water
Thanks for posting these. Now I won’t have to log in to that gawd awful social networking monstrosity they call “Myspace.”
Ed is smiling a good bit these days kind of like he is up to something. Could Janie be pregnant????
Kool. Nice to see him smiling again.
Great pictures, I see some of that old fun loving Eddie in both of them. Maybe with thie money they make off the next tour he can buy some jeans without holes in them 😉
Bluesbro, I guarantee he bought those jeans on Rodeo Ave with the holes already there. Probably $400 a pair. LOL
this whole thing is a publicity stunt!!!!!!! Eddie doesnt care about the fans or the music anymore, he lost it years agoooooooooo. IT’S all about the almighty dollar to him!
brad, my wife is a hardcore VH fan. she asked me to go in the lobby and check up on the VHND for new updates. she’s a warrior! and it was her idea to name our baby edward alexander! born 2:25am sept 12……
Andy i’d say those are DAT tapes. Probably with alot of material he’s written and possibly a new hit.
They are freaking pictures, people calm down! I think it’s funny how people try to “read” something into the pictures. It is what it is. Glad to hear VH is touring next year, will be more excited if there is actually new music to go along with it. I agree w/ Kenny, this is a money grab, Ed does not give a damn about the fans.
PUT OUT A NEW DISC AND TOUR… WHO CARES ABOUT THE REST!
name withheld says chad smith is less progressive? alex is just another drummer, nothing special. chad smith has far more feel and flare to his style. sammy doing chickenfoot for mike? chad smith was the guy pushing for a band with sam and mike. new pictures and recent comments from eddie… whatever! vh really is just about the money. dave doesn’t really sing in a live show, he talks his way through the songs when he remembers the words. satch is by far a more diverse player then eddie. ed is the same riff in different keys everythings sounds the same when it comes to the solo
thank god for chickenfoot
roll up onto the sidewalk and take a better look
chickenfoot at least put forth new material……..still waiting for the new VH material..(cricket sounds)…..(more cricket sounds)……..(even more cricket sounds)…..
I SEE THE SAME OLD FACES&HEAR THAT SAME OLD TALK.
THIS IS HOME,
THIS IS MEAN ST.
Welcome to the “club”;)
“Hope you don`t mind sleeping for the next18yrs”LOL
Bob : Yeah, the ones under the guitars are probably DAT tapes. I was thinkin’ about the ones in the upper-right part of the image. The big black rectangles with a “bright round thingy” sorta in the middle. There’s about 5-10 of these, and I can’t see what they are on my monitor. Any guess?
ED you loook great man, really looking healthy! Wolf is the MAN! His bass playing really kicks ass! Peace!
First pic was good.
All the publicity in the world isn’t worth a damn without new music. Over and out.
