And it looks like they might. Billboard.com reports that the band is on the brink of signing a deal that would have them touring for forty dates on an amphitheater tour. And, the ever quotable frontman of the group, David Lee Roth, had this to say about the prospect of a reunion, according to E! News Online:
Roth, who unceremoniously parted ways with Van Halen in 1985, told the music magazine’s Website eight months ago that getting him and his former hair-band brothers back together would not be “rocket surgery.”
“It’s very simple to put together,” Roth said. “And as far as hurt feelings and water under the dam, like what’s-her-name at the end of the movie Chicago–’So what? It’s showbiz!’ So I definitely see it happening.”
Oh yay. My parents will be so thrilled.
