    I don't often post because so many other people eloquently post my views,but this is different.
    My wife and I went to Maggiano's Italian restaurant last nite to celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary.(Buckhead in Atlanta Ga.)
    At our wedding,the first dance for us was to "Wonderful Tonite" by Eric Clapton.
    So we are sitting there eating and having a ball and Eric Clapton walks in right by us and sits down about five to six feet from us.
    I shit.
    This is my hero's hero.
    The restaurant is packed and EC and his crew go unnoticed except for the wait staff.
    No one bothers him.
    So I sent a note to him thru our Waiter saying how it was our 8th anniversary and how we danced to his tune.I also thanked him for ALL of his music.I did not want to be the one that approached him and got shunned.That would have sucked,big time.
    As we got up to leave,Eric made a point to say "thanks" and waived with a really big smile and seemed very gracious.
    I waived back and said thanks and he winked and gave a thumbs up.
    Now I have met Edward Van Halen at least 10 times.I have never been nervous or starstruck.
    But meeting Clapton was like ridiculous.
    An encounter my wife and I will NEVER forget.

    By the way,we'll have a new VH album with Dave by 09/01.
    Don't ask me how I know.

    Glenn,
    How did you guess the correct release date?
    Man you are on it!! [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]
    I would be reticent to say anything else because I don't want to look like an idiot.
    But I will say it is NOT a hunch!!


    Did I mention that I met Clapton?

    Revision on that tag to my original post.
    Single release by 09/01.
    Album At Xmas.
    Video?.........My source didn't really know but anyone can pretty much assume nowadays that where there is new VH music,there will be new VH video.Everyone think positive. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    As far as my source is concerned,I have not been able to get up with him to see if it is OK to post his name,for he has a huge affiliation with Warner(although he is now in retirement)
    But who it is is not the issue as much as if this latest bit of info is at least close to the mark.
    I personally feel pretty good about it,
    We'll see.

    it does sound kinda odd. i've always thought that there was gonna be a new album, or reasonable facsiile (ie.single) by the fall, so nothing really out of the ordinary as far as rumors go.

    as for meeting clapton, that's sweet dude. [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img] i probably would have done the same thing (passing the note to the waiter). i don't have the balls to go up to some guy having dinner and disturbing him, much less eric clapton. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    Hey JMJ,
    I know you'r not doggin me,it's cool.
    Anyhoo,September in general is what was said,not specifically Sept first.
    Four months does seem like awhile,but lately with bigger artists(at least in country music)like say Tim Mcgraw for example.His single "Things Change" was out months ago,yet the record just came out a couple of weeks ago.It seems like a long wait from a single to release date but not outta the question.
    Anyway,I'm just passin'along the info from someone I consider to be reliable.
    Unfortunately there have been a ton of "reliable" sources on this subjct that have been slam wrong.

    Let's all keep up positive thoughts.

    Peace,
    MD [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]
