Tourin’ With The Devil?

by

van halen.jpgHere’s a bit of news that’s sure to make your 42-year-old uncle (the one with the bald spot and ponytail) Jump for joy. For a record setting 20th year in a row there’s an unsubstantiated rumor floating around that David Lee Roth is FINALLY reuniting with Van Halen. From MelodicRock.com:

No more teasing. Never tease where Van Halen is concerned…I have information from a highly placed source that Van Halen will likely tour in 2007 with David Lee Roth as frontman.

Negotiations are currently underway to re-unite Van Halen with their original frontman for a tour in 2007 that will take in Amercia and possibly other territories. While nothing in the world of Van Halen is set until the band walk out on stage, I can confirm that negotiations between all parties have been underway for some time, trying to put together a big 2007 re-union tour.

So there you have it, it’s “official.” We’re skeptical, and we wonder what’s going to come first: a Van Halen reunion tour or GnR’s Chinese Democracy? Or peace in the middle east? We’re going with C.

Christian Reviews Christian

There’s an old saying: You can’t please all the people all the time. Well, apparently Christian Finnegan can’t even please himself. Christian’s inner monologue took a break from its busy day to review his new comedy album, Two For Flinching. Let’s just say it wasn’t a fan:

I recently had the supreme misfortune of receiving an advance copy of Two For Flinching, the debut CD by purported humorist Christian Finnegan. You may recognize Finnegan as the least funny person on VH1′s Best Week Ever. Or you might recognize him as the white guy from the “Mad Real World” on Chappelle’s Show, a credit I’m guessing Mr. Finnegan will try to coast on until there are no longer any frat boys left who think shouting “You stabbed my dad!” is hilarious.

Read the rest of Christian’s inner monologue’s review here. Then go buy his damn album already.

SIZZLER: Gollum Leto Hates Hobbitses

From our live-blogging perch in a dark corner at last night’s mtvU Woodie awards, we couldn’t see much more than a bunch of drunken college kids screaming “Woooooo!”, which is why we missed this delicious little morsel of celebrity interaction, first reported to us by BWE reader Pee Dee, and now corroborated by another eyewitness report over at Dlisted. Apparently, in between his pretentious acceptance speeches and constant eyeliner application, Jared Leto found the time to saunter over to Elijah Wood’s table and harass Frodo nearly to the point of blows. Here’s what we know so far:

Jared starts whispering stuff in his ear and and occasionally pulling back to look him in the face. Jared then walks away and Elijah turns to his date…and says something. Well something about this must have pissed Jared off because he comes running back to the table, grabs Elijah by the neck and starts screaming at him. All I could catch was Jared calling him a “f*cking asshole”. He then shoves Elijah and storms off. Bodyguards come up and Elijah assures everyone he’s fine.

I’m not sure what Leto could have against the Hobbits, but it probably has something with their peaceful, friendly way of life being at odds with his own agonized, angst-ridden emo existence. Also, if anyone knows more about this, be sure to let us know!

Live-Blogging the mtvU Woodies

mtvu.jpg[Please excuse the shady wireless connection these pot-head college kids at mtvU have provided us with for the night.]

9:46- It’s over! Lights blare, teenagers “mill about.” Fun is had by all! I’m going to run to the open bar before it’s completely dead and gone, but thanks for joining us in the merriment!

9:44 – The band continues performing, and the guitarist whips windchimes out of his pants and begins jangling them in front of the microphone. I find it sweet, though I gather the effect is meant to be “alternative.” Alternatively charming.

9:35Fred Armisen presents the final performence. TV on the Radio! Pleasant enough, the crowd seems very trashed and very happy.

9:32Ghostface Killah presents the Woodie of the Year Award. Angels & Airwaves, Atmosphere, Gym Class Heroes, Panic? at the Disco, and The Academy Is… are up for it. Angels & Airwaves wins. The crowd goes moderately wild, though I do see one woman passionately boo. Tom DeLonge hijacks the acceptance speech, and does not thank Jesus once. What has happened to kids these days?
