    It has already been decided whether DLR is back with VH, there just has not been a formal announcement.

    Let me explain. If he is out he is not going to say anything. Eventually EVH will have to spill the beans and then he will have to take the heat.

    If he is in well (1)there is contractual obligations, (2)who would go see his mini-tour when they can just wait and see him with VH. And lastly, (3)VH would be bombarded with questions and I think that's the last thing they want.

    Please feel free to agree or disagree! [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img] Just leave my mother out of it! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Hey, I'm optimistic about a reunion with Dave.

    I never thought of Dave being quiet so that people will go see him on his mini tour that he is doing.

    Maybe they have done more than 3 songs ? That was maybe a smoke screen...........

    Only they know !

    I think your first comment is correct.

    Dave will let Ed end this.
    and I can't imagine this being a "tune-up" like some people are dreaming. Ed has got to hate that Dave is doing this.

    I give Dave credit for giving fans what he has control of and not losing his patients this time around. I think Ed has ended it and he SHOULD take the heat

    you know, that is a very good point.

    we always thought (because dave said so) that his silence speaks volumes. what if he is using that the other way right now? what if he knows he's not in, or that he will never be back in, and is just being quiet to make it look like ed and the boys want him back? sounds sad, but you never know, not with this band. maybe he is just being quiet and forcing vh's hand, making it look like it's ed's fault.

    i'm not totally convinced myself that this is a warmup either. i'm more sold on the fact that dave is going out to tour right now because that is what he loves to do; and that him and vh have no definite plans as of yet.

    I agree. I'm not convinced that this is a "Warm-Up" deal for DLR... I think he's just out on the road, performing these songs, because he wants to. End of story.

    Don't wanna sound cynical, but I doubt there is anything more here....

    I agree,

    First off, I don't believe Edward has ever "Hated" Dave. They are like a marriage....they have their ups and downs. Always have and always will! I truly believe Edward has a great deal of respect for Dave. That respect comes from the fact that Dave has always done what Dave has wanted to do. Artistically and personally! Lets not forget that Dave cowrote all these classic tunes with Edward, Michael and Alex. While I'm sure Dave is a real pain in the ass, I think the remaining members of VH all hold him i high regard on a professional level.... [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]

    I think that Dave is doing this because he loves to perform, period. I don't think that there is going to be any reunion simply because Eddie doesn't know what he wants to do, or he just doesn't give a shit about making music anymore. I think the reason for Eddie's silence is he knows the majority of the fans want a reunion with Dave, he also knows that the minute he says there is no reunion that it will be '96 all over again, maybe worse. If there is no reunion then he should have said so about a year ago, instead of stringing everyone along like he's still doing.

    Why should Dave talk? He said the whole story. They did three songs a year ago and haven't talked since.

    It should be pretty obvious that Dave isn't a part of the band.
