It was rumored again today that concert promoters really are talking to Van Halen about reuniting for a "handful" of concert dates this summer.

The money would have to be crazy-big to get this band back together, but one can imagine the likelihood to still be possible.

Everyone knows the clock is ticking for Eddie and the boys to do it one last time. No one is  getting any younger. With Elton John, Bob Seger, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and KISS selling out on their Farewell Tours, the time is certainly right.

We all know that reunions are tricky business. Big egos walk the tightrope with big paychecks.

But when guys like Mitch Lafon from Westwood One and Eddie trunk speculating that it could happen...well, it's just too hard to not spread the juicy gossip.

Even David Lee Roth danced around the possibility in an interview with Vulture just last month as reported again today in Alternative Nation:

“When we come back through town in the summertime and do the original thing, maybe somewhere sportin’, maybe with somebody famous,” Roth says, “I’ll make sure we get you all tickets so you can see what we do for gainful employment. My mom still wonders.”

So do we Dave.

Until then, we'll just keep our ear to the ground...
