    I read here a lot, and at the Dome before its closure. Rarely post. In fact, I think this is the first time I've started a new topic either place.

    Anyway, what happened to the rumors? Did the people who wrote'em burn out? Were they all true and nothing has happened in a year?

    Some of my favorites: EVH is working with numerous artists including Terrance Trent Darby, and several variations on "I wound up at 5150 one way or another, and Ed is such a darn nice guy we keep in touch, and here is what I heard".

    I'm not saying anything was or wasn't true, I'm not passing any judgement(my feelings on some of them probably bleed through into sarcasm though).

    All I'm saying is that it seems that either A) the rumors were all false, which we knew was a good possibility, and the writers of said rumors used up all their "A" material early, and we still aren't hearing anything real, and its getting boring, or B) they were true, and EVH has turned into a complete recluse and isn't making for interesting rumors anymore. Obviously, they weren't all true or all false, but you see what I am getting at.

    I'm not trying to piss anybody off, all I'm really saying is, I miss the rumors. Maybe I'm the only one who misses them, I guess they gave me a shred of hope. I just want to see EVH on stage again. When my son(due 1/03) is old enough, I want to be able to take him to a concert and say "See, that's why your middle name is Edward, and that is why I play guitar".

    ... I guess I can always show him the Live w/o a Net video...

    There's still plenty of rumours - the latest one about Mike being sacked even got denial statement from Mike himself.

    Besides the lack of rumors, there is also the lack of discussion (besides the Dave vs. Sammy stuff). Eddymon, have you heard anything lately?

    only 2 things I have heard recently and neither one meshes with the other.
    1. The rumor I allready posted and said is likely BS about The Waboritas splitting up. ( I also heard they are on "hiatus" as well).
    2. And this comes from someone fairly close to Gary, "that don't be surprised if Dave comes back again."
    The second one I don't know if it was said as a rumor or if it were just an opinion.

    Like Raldo said, its been quiet from all aspects, VH, Dave & Sammy as far as rumors go. Even though Sammy has been either seen or heard publicly the most.

    I really hope you're not lumping me in with that comment Zahzoo. I simply stopped posting here because I was tired of sharing information with people that they simply refused to believe.....

    Why waste the life of my keyboard??

    Willy... I wasn't directing this at anyone in particular... although it does come across as an excercise of shootin all the dogs cause a few of em gots fleas... You're cool... and I was just poking some fun at Eddymon...

    I think the real reason we don't get much in the rumor department is because after so many years we've gotten pretty good at smoking them out. I'm surprised that we haven't seen the likes of any more "insider" lengthy reports like we did about 2 years ago... guess we've exhausted the creative writers guild...

    Rumors can be fun to read but most of it is just horse crap so why bother sifting through it?
    The only credible info. we had was from a guy named Sherman a while back. He was able to confirm the possibility of Mitch Malloy actually fronting Van Halen before Gary was given the gig. Sherman seemed to know his stuff but either we showed him the door by doubting the guy or he just stopped posting.

    It seems to me that most rumors are the fictional creation of people that try and connect the dots along their hopes and preferences. Since this means they're not much better than straight-up guesses, most are wrong.

    The CORRECT rumors, however, come out of someone seeing, hearing, or finding something they probably shouldn't have. Like the cancer rumor (that Ed later confirmed) that got out over a case of being in the right place at the right time. The hitch with these, however, is you have to have activity for these kind of rumors to develop. I'd say the lack of rumors is indicative of a lack of activity on the band's part. There's just nothing to report or speculate about anymore.
