    well, i don't know how much credibility this holds but here it goes....take it all as you will..

    i was at the gym yesterday with one of my clients and he introduced me to a friend of his. this guy works for atlantic records and we started to chat about van halen.

    when we did, he got all stoked and his eyes lit up. "you mean you like classic vh?" yeah, i'm thinking...who doesn't?

    to make a long story short, here is what i found out.....

    as far as everyone can tell, ed is healthy and doing well. but being the private person that ed is, we would not know if something was drastically wrong because his family and private life comes first.

    dave has been with the band since february and they have been doing well.

    the tour will begin sometime next may/june but they do not know where exactly they will start.

    the album is done and has been for some time, but no news on how many songs, etc.

    he also said the delay is because of legal reasons and that it is imperative everyone is quiet right now. they want to come out and say something, but they cannot.

    he also said if things "go well", whatever that means, we should be getting a single as early as new years and the album by feb 1st. he said it's highly unlikely for us to hear anything at all the rest of this year.

    as long as we hear something soon, i'm all for it.

    Sounds great to me JMJ. My insider has also said the same thing in regards to legal reasons. Thanks for the scoop!

    This is uplifting news, I hope its true. Hope Vh gets all the legal mumbo jumbo worked out soon and that Ray(dickhead)Danniels doesnt get a CENT!!!


    The only people that talk with me at the gym are middle aged chubby house wifes.

    This makes me feel bad. Even the opportunity to get information about Van Halen can't motivate me to go to the gym.

    It's strange you should say this, I visited the DLRarmy today for the first time and There is a thread started by someone called "let the truth be known" It is an older thread from a few months ago But this Guy/Girl said basically the same exact thing, Legal reasons are why it is taking so long and that an album will be released in Feb 2000 with a tour to follow. Interesting but It looks as if this person was run out of the army so I guess we will have to wait and see.

    i see a lot of peeps at the gym...i am a personal trainer.

    but the guy was cool, but i dunno. it does go along with what we have heard though, nothing new. the thing i was happy about was that he said ed is doing well.

    ciao..

    I've been told the viper room is crap. After a lengthy summer break the guys are in good spirits and getting along fine.

    this is the way i see it...

    aside from the band, ther may only be like 5 people who actually know everything that has gone down. everyone else probably knows bits and pieces...like what i was told a few days ago.

    but this guy said february like sherman said when he was still here so i will bet on february then. however, it would be nice to hear something by thanksgiving

    btw....rothtober is almost over....c'mon tk....give us a break!!

    I belive this to be one of the more creditble rumors for the following reasons:

    1. Val indicated in the TV guide interview that Ed stopped smoking and had a pre-cancerous growth removed from his tounge. Referring that it didn't effect his speech. I remember an Ed siting recently that said he smiled and nodded, but did not say anything.

    2. If Ed were ill, Val would not do anything in the form of self promotion. Family matters come first. The fact the she is promoting is an positive indication of Ed's health.

    Val promoting and in public= Ed's fine.

    3. Dave continues to stay quite. The rumor that he is out and is paid to stay quiet is B.S. What is the return on equity for a company with this strategy? If VH brings in Lennon, Morrison, heck even Cat Stephens to front- maybe. NO BUSINESS would pay DLR for his silence about another singer.

    However, Sammy is the trump card with this theory. If VH were together with Sammy, I would believe this. IN this case, Sammy would be silent, and I presume would not talk Dave.

    Dave is quite because he is a professional. Dave is compelled to be quite because he has too much to lose not doing so.

    Van Halen is a business. Businesses face legal and strategic decisions. I am confident that Ed, Al and Mike want to share the news, any news, but sometimes "No News is Good News". I am confident DLR is back because "silence means security- silence means approval"- M. Stipe

    My "source" still says a possible Thanksgiving single release is a good bet.
    I will believe when I hear it. Oh man if it does happen I'll be in Aruba and I'll have to wait longer and not be here at links.
    Oh well, "bartender, I'll take another banana daquiri please"

    well, this is getting interesting now...

    i was with my client at the gym again and he said he spoke with his buddy from atlantic records in los angeles this past week. he e-mailed my client with the following message to send to me...

    Bob,

    Tell your friend Joe, that I have some news although I am not sure if it is on the level. Word has it that the damn on the VH front is about to break and that a major announcement/leak will be coming soon because of "goings-on" within the band. It looks like the public will hear something on or before December 1st. The band supposedly is getting along well and Edward is recovering from his preventive treatment nicely. Yes, unfortunately Edward had some work done but everyone wanted to keep it quiet for reasons that are understandable.

    From what I gather, there are legalities that need to be settled but I am not sure what they entail. Rumors insist they have to do with Ray Daniels and SRO but I really have no idea about that. Everything is still a go for next year, but we should get something by December 1st like I said. If I get anything else, I'll give you an e-mail to send to Joe.

    Please let him know I enjoyed the time and his help at the gym last week. My best to your wife.

    Paul
