    Wow, I'm surprised nobody has posted this hear yet. New rumor (long) up on the official site. Worth a read I suppose. Even if it is complete shit at least it's an interesting story. http://www.van-halen.com/newsite/ubb...ML/006179.html

    The guy comes across as very forthwright, and his assumptions are all very plausible if not right on the money. I believe I'll believe him.

    Sounds good to me, I just hope it's true.

    It sounds more believable than most rumours but i'm not sure that I believe it.

    I'm moving this topic to the Rumour Mill.

    As with all rumors I will take this with a grain of salt. It is well written however and seems plossible.

    "Not just yet because it all could change".


    This sounds like a definite Edism...

    Well, the guy is a pretty good writer and he covered all the prominent rumor bases. His explanation for "MagicCarpetRide" was plausible. It was well-written and literate...Sounds credible to me...for all that is worth...

    I dunno about this one. Definitely plausible and definitely logical, but I don't think VH and Dave would want to get back together at all if it wasn't going to be amicable and full go. I mean, I'm as big of a reunion fanatic as anybody here, but I honestly don't think I'd want to see VH with Dave if it wasn't done for the right reasons. Separate traveling arrangements? Dave laying down vocals without the boys there? Nope. I'm sorry folks I don't want that, even if it's the only way to get a new song with Dave in there. Another thing that bothers me. Rough versions of 3 new tracks? No way those are getting out to anyone. And honestly, I don't know if Van Halen would try another VH3 type album (non-traditional). Didn't Michael Anthony say that they were going to return to a traditional album? I don't know. I think it's bullshit. Creative bullshit, but bullshit none the less...

    i don't know what to make of it...

    the magic carpet ride thing makes sense, but that could have come from anywhere.

    no way would they have separate traveling arrangements and dave do tracks by himself..how the fuck are they gonna tour together?

    and i hate this fucking vh with dlr moniker bullshit. that is the dumbest thing i have ever heard of.

    deep down, don't believe it

    The setup has holes in it, and the rest is too detailed. First he says VH isn't sure about anything, then he tells us Dave'll be travelling with the band on flights, but not on the busses. Buy it if you want, but let's not pretend it's real.

    One thing I found in the post was that just about every rumor was mentioned. He also had an answer for them to. From 'Tabula Rasa' to
    'Magic Carpet Ride', this guys seemed to know it all. If anything, it's a nice story.
    One grain of salt, coming up!

    Bullshit! Well written but still bullshit.
    He says things are still tentative but then goes into their tour plans for the next year and a half. Doesn't sound tentative to me. He says he's not real close to the band yet he knows exactly the little rules that some counselor/therapists sets down for these guys to get along? Bullshit. He's says he has to come foward with this info. because his son threatened to go ahead and tell it himself if he didn't? ????!!?? That made no sense to me. Thus I declare it to be Bullshit. Everything he said are either old rumors or what Mikey and Dweezil have recently said in interviews with them. Like I said, very well written but it has the overwhelming stench of bullshit.

    I'm not saying that I don't believe this guy. At first I did but when I read the post a couple of more times I found some information that was contradicting. Here are the 2 statements.

    1st statement:

    "They spent the whole of May-Sept. working out issues amongst themselves. Only in the early part of Oct. 2000 did they completely agree to try and recapture the magic. There were some get-togethers during this period (I believe in July and August) where the whole band got together (and from my info, it was not at 5150, but possibly a soundstage on the Warner Bros. lot they had rented) and jammed."

    2nd statement:

    Edwards "Tounge Cancer" scare was not life threatening, but was more serious than has been reported. He is in fine health now, and his haircut is not the result of Chemotherapy or radiation treatements.

    OK guys/gals correct me if I'm wrong here but wasn't Edward's surgery sometime in May or June? As he stated above in statement #2: Edwards "Tounge Cancer" scare was not life threatening, but was more serious than has been reported.

    If that was the case I seriously doubt Edward was out jamming with Dave, Alex, & Mikey in July and August. Then again he could be the type of person that is not held back from an illness to do certain things for his career.

    Like I said I just don't know but this stuck out while I was reading this for a 3rd time.

    I am sure I will get a lot of different opinions on my claim. Whether they are good are bad I want to hear them.

    ------------------
    Al and I are the real Van Halen. There could always be Van Halen as long as it's me and Al. But if there was no Dave, this place would be pretty empty tonight. - EVH during a 1984 pre-concert interview before that night's sold out show

    And there's only one David Lee. I'm the fun in Van Halen, always will be. - David Lee Roth

    When classic Van Halen is together it's like one person. When I say 'I' in this respect, I mean my whole cadre that I am part of. I'm the tear boss, and I'm a fuckin' lifer. - David Lee Roth

    "In America, we believe big time in publicizing the shit out of 'we ain't talkin'.' First we make goddamn sure that everybody knows we ain't saying anything..." - David Lee Roth

    It all sounds very plausible,

    BUT,

    Remember how we were all sucked in with Bonn?

    A pinch of salt over my shoulder.
