    ....came my way. Rumour of course but my "source" has no reason to lie to me. Don't shoot the messenger [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    - Eddie was declared cancer free by Cedars Sinai a while ago.

    -Right now there are no plans for Van Halen whatsoever, they don't even have any management. Eddie is not interested in the band , wants to walk away and he hasn't jammed with Mike or Alex for ages, let alone Roth or any other singer.

    -The collaboration with Roth didn't work on any level as far as EVH is concerned.

    -There is intense pressure from WB and everyone else for a reunion. But money is not an issue, so there is a stalemate.

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>That makes sense, given that according to Dave they wrote 3 amazing songs yet stopped working together at that point, and never got back together. Obviously the songs weren't amazing as far as Eddie was concerned.

    HUH????????

    Where does that fit into this topic?

    And maybe you should say 'Eddie ruined Van Halen 3' if you didn't like it. Maybe, just maybe, Eddie learned a lot while making it and will take his new knowledge and put it to more accessible use.

    Very true. No member of Van Halen has ever lied [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    Eddie didn't say anything about Van Halen at NAMM. Mike said the same thing last July and we're still waiting.

    He did say that he had to take his new Wolfgang models out on tour to test before they would be released. And I think if I recall correctly he might have mentioned that the tour might be late this year??

    I'm not sure you remember the second part correctly. But anyway, here's what I think:

    1. Not everyone has told the truth about everything. I'm not suggesting that we "deserve" any/all info and I'm certainly not referring to the gaps in information. I'm saying what we have been told doesn't add up.

    2. Whatever the "truth" is, I very much doubt whether it has stayed consistent in the last 18 months are even the last 18 days.

    3. Dave fired the first shot in what is either an internet battle and/or conspiracy. It's no accident that Eddie made his statement when he did.

    3. Van Halen is Eddie, Alex and Mike according to the official website. IMO that is not a Van Halen which will go on tour.

    4. Despite what I learnt yesterday, I still believe a VH reunion will take place in some form. But I think that is a very long way off right now and compromises will have to be made which haven't been made yet.

    5. Consequently there have been a lot of delaying tactics.

    6. Eddie has three options:

    a. VH w/Dave which he doesn't really want
    b. VH w/o Dave which no one else really wants.
    c. No Van Halen.

    I'm sure he's leaned towards option c. at some point over the last 18 months especially in light of his illness. I don't suppose anyone really knows which option will happen in the end.

    i personally would like to see option c if dave isnt returning to the band. if eddies heart isnt in to it to pursue a reunion with dave and wb is pressuring him to do something he doesnt want to do whats the point in continuing? he can live comfortably with val doing angel stuff and the occasional tv mini series. mikey can make some cash off of hot sauce and alex well i dont know what he can do...that way there we can listen to the old vh and reminice about the good ol days and not have to onder when an announcement is due or if dave and eddie are getting along the soap opera ends and everyone is happy.....except for the fns but thats what memories are for to remember the good ol days.........

    This actually makes a lot of sense. First of all, as Glenn said, the stoppage of work. Secondly, if you assume DLR's statement was only made publicly, it makes you wonder what made him feel like he couldn't call Ed.

    There's probably some truth buried in this rumor. Whether or not ALL of it makes sense, it's at least partially plausible.
