TALAS will reunite with their original line-up - bass legend Billy Sheehan, guitarist Dave Constantino and drummer Paul Varga - on July 28th in Niagara Falls at the Hard Rock Cafe Hotel & Casino.
About the reunion show Sheehan told Mitch Lafon from BraveWords.com recently: "We’ll do it primarily to play, of course, but also to hang out. We’ve had so many dear friends asking us. We’re really looking forward to having a reunion, but not only of us - of all our old timer friends that have been in the audience for decades. It should be a great great time.”
The classic Talas song ‘Shy Boy’ was covered by VAN HALEN singer David Lee Roth on 1986's Eat 'Em And Smile album. When asked if he's followed Van Halen’s current tour and new album and if he still speaks to Roth, Sheehan added:
"I haven’t spoken to him in a while, but we’re certainly on friendly excellent terms. I’m glad for him that he’s in Van Halen. I wish it were the original line-up. I miss not seeing Michael Anthony, but good for Eddie; he’s got his son in there and that’s cool. I’m a fan and it really would have been great to... Everybody is in good health and it would have been great. There’s no excuse... Mr. Big ended on a negative. We pulled it all together and are having a great time. I just wish other people could do the same, but unfortunately it didn’t work out that way. I wish them well just the same, but I haven’t followed. I saw a snippet of ‘Tattoo’. They looked good and seemed happy. So, I’m glad for them. I love all those guys. Their music and that band is a great part of my life in a lot of ways, so I hope they do great.”
