    No one knows for sure but it looks like he's the only one who is ever saying anything about the band. He's pretty much their spokesperson.

    I could be wrong, but from what I understand he's on the VH payroll. I heard Mike comment on it. That everything Brad does he expenses it. Well, logic would dictate that since VH isn't doing anything, there isn't any income for the band (except royalties from cd sales and radio play, and that goes directly to their homes.)
    No money for Brad and the Oficial VH Website. No updating.

    While on the other hand, Mike seems to enjoy his website, and Brad is his webmaster also, he does most of work at Mad Anthonies Cafe website...

    "......HEY!.............alright............." -BIG FOOT

    " I know what you're thinking: "Do I want to watch Mard? We know that horses were very strong and could actually stop airplanes from flying away. The ones made out of stone called "statues" -- occasionally came to life and rode off is a colonial cliche. How many more times do we need to hear about how the oppressive Raj's wore villainous black capes, crafted cunning plastic masks to impersonate people, and drained all the blood from their slaves so they could keep the fluid in bottles in their dungeons? I mean, YAWN!

    But if you're willing to sit through this dry sort of historical drama one more time -- or even just this dry historical review -- you will not be disappointed. In fact, some of you might just learn something they didn't teach you in school!-

    I have no first hand knowledge of the situation... but an educated guess is he's contracted to perform webmaster functions for the band's official web site. If his employers don't wish to make changes to their site it's their call... they own it. In simple terms he may just be performing the duties as instructed by his employers.

    You are assuming the webmaster job is a M-F 9-5er... that may not be an accurate assumption if you understand the nature of the business.

    I asked Brad the very question in the first post and what Zahz says is basically what Brad led me to believe.

    What are you guys talking about? Brad has an extremely important and difficult job! Once a week he has the laborious task of choosing the "photo of the week". Every month (and I mean EVERY month) he has to change the guitar picture for the giveaway. And about every six months to a year he posts a message from the band. WHEW! That is hard F#ckin' work, fellas.

    If the band won't let him post anything, what do you expect him to do? It is their web site after all.

    Brad is their internet spokesman, which is different than a standard spokesman/publicist.

    If the band doesn't give him any information whatsoever to post, then he can't really do anything except to update the site when it comes to photos, stats, artwork, etc. Mike is different. He obviously keeps everyone in the loop when it comes to what he is doing as much as possible. However, if Ed and Al aren't giving Brad any info, then he can't say anything, whether it's speculatory or official. In the meantime, he's like the rest of us; he just has to wait it out.
    "Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that."

    "This is a lttle prayer dedicated to the separation of church and state. I guess if they are going to force those kids to pray in schools they might as well have a nice prayer like this: Our Father who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation indivisible as in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail. Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."

    "I think it's the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is drawn and cross it deliberately."

    My guess is that Brad's work for the Halen bros. is only on an "as needed basis" at this point. That website suffers from severe neglect. I dont think it has been updated since August. [img]graemlins/wtf.gif[/img] You can thank the VH bros. for that.

    I'll bet they didnt tell Brad when he took the job that he was going to be the spokesperson for the band. [img]graemlins/sssh.gif[/img]
