    We've discussed EVH's ego, health, greed, etc.

    I too, am very disappointed with the band, but let's move forward for a second:

    In spite of all that has happened, and in spite of the fact that Van Halen is no longer affiliated with Warner Brothers, they still are relevant. They still have the ability to make headlines.

    If the band no longer held it's place in the hearts of everyone, than why are people still discussing the band? Why does Eddie keep appearing on the covers of guitar magazines?

    Bottom line:

    Van Halen has kept everything locked up tighter than a virgin's, eh, you know what.

    I guarentee you that reporters are dogging the band. Think about it; if the Enquirer broke out with some new information, they'd sell hundreds of thousands of copies - and they know that.

    If Eddie were very ill, then why no story? You mean to tell me that it has been almost a year, and absolutely nothing has leaked? Not a thing? Not an "Eddie Van Halen was spoted at so and so clinic"?

    No. For the past year, it has been absolutely nothing. But it has been conspicuously quiet.

    I think that the master manipulator of the media is at work: DLR. Think about it, at around this time last year, it was, what seemed like a daily volley between DLR and EVH.

    I bet the band is gonna do something big, remaining silent, and is making the band a daily topic with the finer details (WB split, copyright, etc).

    What do you guys think? Does what I say make sense with regard to Ed?s health?

    Even someone with celebrity status, if they?re ill, can?t keep things this quiet.

    Makes sense to me. Not saying I think that's the way it is, but it's definitely a possibility.

    The reason there's been nothing in the Enquirer or anywhere else is that they would not sell hundreds of thousands of copies with a VH story. No one cares. If it would sell that many copies, they'd make something up if they couldn't come up with real news. The media and the general population could care less about VH right now. Even the possibilty of a DLR/Hagar tour is minor news. I've mentioned it to friends/co-workers, and they hadn't heard about it at all. A reunion with DLR or Hagar might generate some excitement, but I doubt the general public will care too much.

    At this point, anything is possible and if it did happen, it would be unbelievable. IMO, I don't think it will happen because things keep getting worse and worse. If the master plan is to keep quiet then explode, I sure would be fooled.

    Sounds like you're either overly optimistic or slightly delusional. I can't see Dave behind this mess. It's EVH. He's got nothing else to do.

    The reason nothing goes public is because the media doesn't really need to know what's up every time Eddie picks his nose. That's about all that has been going on.
