    if you want, copy and paste it and send her out to as many people as you can. if you don't like it or think it's worthless, go back to saying how drunk eddie looks and not contributing anything worthwhile to the vh discussions here. if you think vh is a dead issue, don't post anywhere but the non music forum then
    ----------------------------------------

    Please Help Bring Back Van Halen

    All of you at one time or another have heard the thundering sounds and musical prowess of the mighty Van Halen. From Runnin’ With the Devil to Jump, and 5150 to Without You, Eddie Van Halen, his brother Alex, bass player Michael Anthony, and lead vocalists David Lee Roth, Sammy Hagar, and Gary Cherone have captivated audiences all over the world.

    After Cherone had departed the band in November 1999, Van Halen has been somewhat quiet as to what their future plans are. As many of you may know, Eddie was diagnosed with tongue cancer and after a relapse of the cancer, has been given a clean bill of health according to a news update from Eddie on the band’s official website at www.van-halen.com

    Since then, former lead singers David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar embarked on a summer tour together to reach out and touch the fans of Van Halen with the music that has never left the rock and music industry the same.

    Our attempt here is to get this letter to as many people as possible around the world and show Eddie just how much we miss both his music and him. While we realize he is battling some personal problems now and is trying to take things slow, the only thing we want to do is let him know how much we think about him and that we’re rooting for him to come back and kick our butts one more time be it with, Dave, Sam, or both of the guys.

    Please forward this to everyone you know and call your local rock stations and request some Van Halen.

    Hope you are ok Eddie, we love ya man

    The only thing I'd suggest is to detatch the VHForums.com url from that letter.

    Not to be a downer or anything, but this is pointless. Nobody wants to get spam about a dead band from a bunch of overly optimistic fans that really should know better. Imagine getting something like this in your email about Twisted Sister.

    EVH is only going to do something when EVH is ready to do something. How clear can the man make it? Van Halen is a dead band. Maybe someday they'll play some benefits or a few one-off shows, but it's over people. Love the music, love your memories, but don't expect anything from this.

    wtf was i thinking mike? shit i dunno.

    van halen has now been relegated to a hair band wannabe like twisted sister. well heck, shit if i knew that

    since van halen is over and done with as you put it, i guess i won't be seeing you post in anymore van halen related topics.

    heck, thought it'd be a lil fun maybe ta send out a message about ed and the boys, laugh a little if a few thousand people received the darn thing. it's a heck of a lot better than getting the usual chain letter of send this to 15 people or you will die tonight bullshit.

    excuse me for trying to brighten the mood around here. no one ever wants to try anything or do anything fun because people are such fucking downers.

    people wanna bitch and moan but they come back to the board everyday looking for news and bashing the way ed looks, what he wears, how sam looks, the dvd's dave is making. gee, no one cares about vh anymore and they're a dead issue but there's almost 5,000 poeple here who constantly have something to say about them.

    did i think this would get a response from van halen? obviously not. but shit i'd be fun. no wait a second, it's pointless. van halen is like twisted sister for crying out loud. eddie is about as talented as dee snyder. god what was i thinking?!

    excuse the fuck outta me for being a fan of ed's and the band and trying to do something positive.

    van halen fans huh? shit i don't know what the fuck i was thinking. guess i'll toss my vh collection and sell my striped wolfie cuz vh is dead right? see ya on ebay

    I guess I missed the original letter JMJ suggested while I was out having a life... damn!!

    JMJ you crazy bastard!!! What the hell were you thinking... have some fun!!! HA!!! [img]graemlins/scared.gif[/img]

    Now you've gone and upset the in-depth Oncology discussions by all of our cancer specialists!!!

    How are going to diagnose and perform Substance Abuse Counseling on-line, if we're having fun...?

    Whose gonna analyze Ed and Val's marriage using our vast expertise as Marriage Counselors...?

    How the hell are we gonna perfect our art of internet put-downs based on Lead Singer preferences from past Van Halen eras...? This is really gonna upset the Guerilla Leftist Jihadi's for the LSD Liberation Front!!!

    WTF...? Have some fun and make a little noise since obviously the band is silent... What were you thinking...??

    What's with all the cynicism and seriousness, kids...?

    Van Halen is about fun... have we forgotten that?

    Right, my bad. Spamming people with desperate pleas for them to call radio stations is wonderful fun. That's what the band is all about.

    Nobody'll ever care or notice, but we should do it anyway because it's fun!

    You're not bad Mike... but hey how about joining us in finding something more constructive to do than putting down the past/present band members and bickering amongst ourselves... The wait sucks... but heck from what I've seen round here we're a pretty fun loving bunch of knuckleheads... if not something to smoke out the band... what would you suggest? Practical jokes? Wet t-shirts contests? Come on... help us out?

    Trying is great, but the effort would be better spent on something more realistic. The idea that Eddie would take notice and act because of people calling into radio stations to request songs is a little silly. If hundreds of thousands turning out to see Sam and Dave this summer didn't send a message, a minute bump in radio airplay certainly won't.

    A couple of years ago a large effort was made to get a VH video played on MTV's request show. People spent hours submitting the info over and over. We didn't even come close, although a poster who worked for MTV (Georgie) said some notice was taken.

    That was a directed effort with a specific and possible goal. There aren't a whole lot of us active VH fans left, and we'd have to do something that accepts that fact.

    On a side note, Dee Snider & his shit-ass band should not even be mentioned in the same breath as the Mighty VH. I'm starting to loose faith too these days, but it's still fun to dream, right?

    E-mails, Internet polls, and message boards are mostly ignored, except for the people participating in them.

    If you want to get Edward's attention I suggest you sit down and write (hand write) a letter. THousands, or hundreds of thousands of hand written letters to some legitimate address MIGHT get some sort of notice.
