    Looks like things are finally falling into place. I don't make up the rumors.... I just repeat 'em. So here I go:

    1. VH plans to make a brief appearance at the Grammy Awards on February 21, 2001. No interviews, no Q&A. Just a quick in-and-out appearance for the press. VH rejected a request to present an award.

    2. This will be followed by a Press Conference in Los Angeles and 2-hour Live Chat on America Online on February 22 at 9:00 PM EST.

    3. New single will be released exclusively to AOL subscribers on Friday, February 23. Radio release will be on March 1.

    4. Album release is tentatively scheduled for April 3. Advanced purchase for AOL members will be available. This may move up or back a week or two -- depending on the circumstances.

    5. Tour sponsored by AOL to begin on July 4. Launch will take place in the mid-West -- Indianapolis, Cleveland and Auburn Hills are likely candidates.

    Warner execs want to make a very big splash with this album... so they have a series of joint promotional activities planned with AOL. The AOL/TW merger -- not EVH's health or acrimony within the band -- was the main reason for the delay for the past 3 months.

    Now that the FCC has given the green light to the merger, VH plans are moving forward.

    That's all I know.

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>This makes no sense to me at all. Why release something that can't be accessed by anyone who wants it?

    Can't you just see the AOL commercials on TV? Images of happy family members keeping in contact from all around the country, while ATBL blares in the background. Everybody gets to do a "hey! hey! hey!"

    Alright lions...down, down...back in your dens!

    Have we all become so damn skeptical that nothing, NOTHING is believable anymore? For Christ sakes, if EVH himself came out and said, "yes, it's true, Dave's back, we have an album, we're going on tour in the middle of 2001", I don't think half of you would believe him!

    I'm going out on a limb here (holiday season, the theme is "hope" here peeps), I'll be the first to say...

    "...IT'S ABOUT F*@#&%G TIME!" Woo Hoo!! WE ARE FINALLY GOING TO GET WHAT WE'VE BEEN WAITING FOR!!!

    VAN HALEN IS BACK!

    Forget the rumors, forget the insiders and just look at the facts.....more airplay, remasters, VH camp silent, RD out of the picture at the end of 2000....IT'S BEEN IN FRONT OF OUR FACES!

    NOW IS THE TIME TO BRING DOWN THOSE WALLS AND START TO BELIEVE! (Can you FEEEEEEEL the Power!!)

    Come on! Everything is pointing to it coming down in the next couple of months!!! Why NOT believe? (don't answer that

    ..."LOOK AT ALL THE PEOPLE HERE TONIGHT!!!"

    (i'm getting goose bumps)

    (If I'm wrong...I'll be eating crow by Easter )

    I can totally see the Time Warner/AOL connection. What a great way for them to celebrate the merge (and increase stock interest) with this kind of sponsorship. In this day in age, it wouldn't shock me at all to see AOL as a sponsor - and with WB, their record label?

    Didn't someone mention something about "the announcement will reach fans from the age of 15 to 50"? Sounds like AOL would be a perfect place for that market.

    I just cant see them 'limiting' the reunion in any way.

    And quite frankly I'll be mad as hell if I cant access reunion info and tunes until 'later', simply because I'm not an AOL subscriber.

    Do you really think Van "hey man, I'll fuck your girlfriend!" Halen fits the image AOL project? Back Street Boys and their ilk are much more suited for AOL. Companies like Anheuser-Busch are much more likely as tour sponsors, if there are to be any.

    Yeah Goo, that part WOULD suck (marketing can be a bitch - but it just MIGHT entice some to become subscribers).

    In any event, I'm jumping on this band wagon (even though I'm the only player ) I really like the sound of February...I've waited this long, I'll be thrilled to wait only two more months
