    I spoke with Warner Brothers again...there is nothing earth-shattering here, but I hope it helps shed light on what is going with our favorite band.

    I called WB, they answered some questions for me. They had no answers for some others. They seem to know about as much of what is going on with VH as the rest of us here at the Links. They were not evasive or saying "no comment" at all. They honestly seem to be as much in the dark as the rest of us.

    The first time any publicist associated with VH heard of their splitting with Warner Brothers was LAST WEEK.

    Karen Moss WAS the publicist for VH, but Liz Rosenberg assumed those responsibilities because she is a personal friend of Eddie. Liz Rosenberg said she has been "trying to contact Eddie..." regarding a press release, but NO official press release has been issued by WB at this time. She reiterated that VH leaving Warner Brothers happened on a totally amicable basis.

    Upon further conversations with others at WB, I learned that no one at Warner Brothers EVER heard any of the three songs recorded with Dave. Other persons I spoke with agreed that a VH album with David Lee Roth at the helm would be a big seller...but it was implied that VH were the ones who initiated the exit from WB...one other person noted that since they have been working at Warner Brothers, they noticed that VH was a band "who fight alot and can't decide what they want..."

    Not one of the various persons I spoke with had a CLUE what VH will do next. None of them had heard ANY new music, they had NO IDEA who was singing for the band, and no knowledge at all of their immediate plans.

    I don't have a friend who sweeps the floor of the Boston Civic Center or anything like that. I am not some super sleuth. I made a PHONE CALL. This is all 100% straight from the WB mouth. Some of you could very easily do the same. I promise they know NO MORE than we VH-Internet junkies.

    I'd make a wager that IF jimmy page's info is correct (It sounds like he knows Mikey's gardener or something), VH might be planning on telling us they are working with their own label in 2 to 3 weeks. We'll get a "yes, we're working on a new album. No, we won't tell you who the singer is, no we won't tell you just yet when we're touring". WB probably just stopped asking VH inc. what their plans were.

    Now, this I believe. Good post. It sounds like VH is closing up shop.

    My source is not one of VH,but a family member of VH.I was told a announcement would include announcing who the vocalist was.MIKEYS statements at that car show a few months ago are true.I was told the failed 1996 reunion,that dave was still very demanding and this is why its taking so long.I was told its different now and everyone really wants it to work out.

    Thanks for taking the time out to give WB a call. As for the comments by 'Jimmy Page', I hope they are true because I'm tired of waiting and tired of all the 'bullshit' posts.

    And from a different post...

    As we speak,there are plans being drawn out.A offer will be made to vocalist #1.If its not accepted,then choice #2 it will be.#4 vocalist is not a choice.
    So, according to you, Mikey's comments were true, Dave is in. GREAT.

    And according to you, Dave was reluctant because of the 1996 fiasco, and he has been very demanding so that's why it was taking so long, but know everything is different and they want to work it out, but they haven't even made an offer?

    And they're ready as soon as Dave says no, to ask Sammy or Gary back? Right.

    And according to you, Mike's statements were true, meaning Dave is in, yet you refer to him as vocalist #1?

    Why didn't you just say if Dave says no, they will ask either Sammy or Gary to join again?

    I smell bullshit.

    Bullshit.

    All you rumor mongering liars always have to protect your contacts. Why? Because they don't fucking exist, that's why.

    This isn't Enron. George Bush isn't gonna put a contract out on somebody's head because they tell the fucking truth about what a fucking band is doing.

    Get over yourself. No matter how many rock star names you use to spread your shit (Michael Jackson/JimmyPage/Timothy BullSchitt) NOBODY'S BUYING IT.

    Is there any chance you met this client on the road to Dushambe?

    Are you a REAL GLG-20, or one of the decoys?

    Perhaps Agent 99 will be kind enough to share her info with us.

    By any chance did Q supply you with your car?

    But why would you say Mike's comments are true, that Dave is in, but say that they haven't made him an offer?

    And who's their second choice, Gary or Sam?

    I was told a offer was made to DAVE.A forth vocalist is not a option.
