    hiya folkes. i've been a fan all my adult life here in little ol england and when i took all the albums i didn't listen to anymore to the store, you know, crue, skid row, ratt jesus the list is embarrasing and long (femme fuckin fatal, why i bought that i'll have no idea. i was young. impressionable) anyways i hung onto vh1 to 1984 and sorry hagar fans 5150 onwards went the same way as ratt. i can just hear you hagar fans cursing me already. anyways, i moved on onto other musical tastes and so on but i still can not resist coming back to, say, fair warning for it's shear wonderful darkness and the summer pop tunes, dance the night away, simple rhyme, when we're lucky to get some good weather around here. but my point is (i'm getting there) what with no studio album from the vh backing band and no label, the inevitable on set of age and the further inevitable quest into AOR.... is this it, the end of VH. these boys had a good innings, but i don't see how they can move forward in any progressive or meaningful way. when rock stars get old they get boring. it is an unfortunate musical axim that few, if any, have broken. i'd like to hear your feelings about this cause the only other VH fan i know is my mate, who i've known for some 20 years and when you've been talking VH for that amount of time i already know what he thinks before we even enter into a discussion. you don't get many VH fans over here. it's a pitty. but the truth. so come on, let's hear what you got to say....

    I think the Van Halen brothers have retired and that the closest thing you'll get to VH now days is the Sam and Dave show. Unfortunately for you I doubt they'll ever tour England.

    I doubt this is the end... damn long hiatus though!!!

    Here's my take... throw out the 2 dimensional thinking... ie. reuniting with either Dave or Sam. There now we have the whole rest of the universe of options. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Look at some of our other great rock musicians from the 60's, 70's and many of them have taken long breaks and also ventured off into other musical directions. In many cases their output and touring was reduced significantly but still manage to produce some great music.

    For example... Eric Clapton, Carlos Santana, Paul McCartney, George Harrison (RIP), Jimmy Page, Brian May, Jeff Beck, etc... All have ventured off at varing times from their original groups but eventually came back at time with some great contributions. I look at it from this perspective for Eddie, Alex and Michael...

    Eddie has stated on the official site he is cancer free and its time to focus on whats important...the music. So, VH is far from retired.

    Right. They just need a singer, manager, road manager, and record label.

    Hell, the album's practically out!

    Singer: Biggest problem, if they wanna retro
    Manager: Not a problem
    Road Manager: Also not a problem
    Record Label: Hmmm, not sure on this one

    Don't kid yourself, folks... if Edward Van Halen wants to release a record, he won't have to look long for a label, a manager or a singer.

    I'd just hope that he'd have the business sense not to call it "Van Halen" if it doesn't feature either Dave or Sam on vocals, not because it would personally offend me or anything, but because it would be doomed to a quick and painful commercial death long before it ever made it to the shelves of a record store... even if it kicked ass like no other record has before, it simply wouldn't be given a chance.

    I really believe Ed, Al, Mike and whoever will be back sometime soon. Van Halen aren't going to end things on a sour note. Once we get them back they will be back for a very long fucking time. Rock ON!!!!!!!!!!
