    This is all from the upcoming issue:

    From Alan Mintz: "Van Halen is currently weighing all the options and seeing what the future brings, (but) it's still premature to say where the band will go" He says they will seriously consider major label offers, but that such a move isn't a given "These are interesting times"

    "Van Halen's contract was not up with the label, but the two parties negotiated a mutual release. While one source says Van Halen left because WB wanted the act to record a new album with former lead singer DLR (with whom EVH had written three songs in 2000, according to Roth), EVH had vetoed that prospect.

    "However, another source says the decision to split "was not a function of the where the band was musically. There were business reasons"

    and Warner keeps the masters...

    you can bet WB will cash in with box sets and all sorts of gift-type crap in the future.

    Well that makes sense. It's not the news I wanted to hear, but it fits perfectly into what's going on.

    Dave is doing solo stuff because Eddie just will not work with him.

    Eddie splits with WB because they want Dave.

    It's no secret that Eddie and Dave don't like each other. It's just too bad we have to find things out this way.

    Maybe Eddie is going to try to get in on Limp Biscuit's audition/contest! Come to think of it, I did see a guy look a lot like him in line outside of GuitarCenter last weekend!!!

    "These are interesting times." No kidding. It's been 'interesting' since November of 1999. At least some of what's been happening is now out in the open and it certainly helps to clarify SOME things.

    I agree that when a band says things like "we're considering several label offers" that really means "nobody will return our phone calls"

    but what label WOULD want to sign a singerless directionless band?

    nice translation ford,

    i too am more confident than ever about the box-set.

    one concern i do have is that it will be a glorified RE- package of stuff we already have, that is too typical of box-sets.

    on the other hand the recent stevie ray vaughn box-set was exceptional in that it was alomost entirely unreleased live and studio recordings. i HOPE that warner doesn't blow it.

    wonder if the set will cover all eras like the deep purple set or split eras like the genesis sets.
    UP FRONT FANATIC....!!!!
