Rumors are rumors, this we know. But is all of this so-called buzz on the web simply satire by some 2nd & 3rd level bloggers?


It's easy and fun to speculate, but most of the time it's just not true.
Honestly, I'd prefer to be 100% accurate every time I open the mic to speak on-air. (my boss would prefer that, too!)

Radio jocks like me love this sh** because it gives us something to talk about while on-air, coming out of 'Panama', or while talking-up the ramp into 'Eruption/You really Got Me', or even within our own little circles of friends and admirer's (tee hee) who think we're suppose to KNOW everything in the world of ROCK & Roll.

Well, I'll tell you this.... I certainly don't know everything about the world of Rock & Roll. But, these same type of rumor-mill rumblings started months before GnR rumors started to make some noise on-line a couple years ago. So, we're all compelled to sift thru the BS we hear, and just sit back , listen to our favorite Van Halen tracks, and hope for the best. I think that will be my plan going forward.

In the meantime, here are some photo's I shot from the 4th row at the Xcel in May 2012. Let's enjoy the ride! -'Train Wreck' ~ Z-Rock Weekends
