While Van Halen is on the road in Japan, those in the know say the boys in the band are lonely.

Unlike a U.S. tour, the families tend to stay at home while the band plays the Far East.

This can make for some lonely nights, and it's not 1984, so the good old groupies are not as plentiful as before.

If we know Diamond Dave, he's doing just fine. He sleeps with his one true love every night -- himself!

Look for Van Halen on the road in the U.S. next summer...if we are lucky.
