    I have never been so disgusted by a group of people in my life. Many of you folks truly don't understand what Van Halen is all about.

    Van Halen is about good times, living fast, damn the torpedo's, and damn the consequences as well!!!

    All of you old ladies in here crying over Eddie's possibly having a few too many to drink should ask yourself, "What is Running With The Devil all about?" You remember, the first song off of their first album? True, I no longer Take My Whiskey Home, but I don't throw stones at folks that do.

    Van Halen NEVER could have made all that great music if they were clean and sober throughout their life. Eddie and Dave are still living the life. Something that you folks might want to consider doing yourselves. And it isn't about drinking either. It's about doing what YOU want to do, not worrying about what other small minded folks are thinking of you.

    Something all of you armchair Van Halen critics might want to remember, NOBODY has ever built a statue for a critic. Get off your judgemental asses and do something more constructive than worrying like a bunch of old crows about other peoples issues.

    Eddie, Dave, Alex, Mike, Sammy, and Gary have ALL contributed more art and happiness to this world than what most of us ever will.

    To which they have earned my eternal respect and gratitude.

    Yeah.There have been goodtimes with VH,but now I want back all the money I spent on them to help get them where they are money wise.All the money I spent on their merch.All the money I spent on tickets,gas and motels traveling all those miles to see them many of times.All the breath I have wasted in the last 4 years saying how great VH is.It may not mean much to VH,but it alot to me.
    Are we going to have to wait for Wolfie to start his own band before we get another Van Halen CD?

    You probally voted for Gore and think Johnny Walker is a patriot for fighting for the Taliban! Grow up and fuck off! We're just fans that are disgrunteled with the way we have been neglected the last 5 years. All we want is music, or a simple, " How are you, We're fine" We haven't got that. In America we're allowed to bitch about simple minded things like that! This forumn is harmless, just a place where us VH fans can get together and talk about our faviorate band. If you don't like it, don't come back! I think I speak for most here.

    VH means different things to different people. Like all great art, there's many different interpretations of it. Get used to it.

    I understand what VH is all about just fine thanks! Right Now VH is INACTIVE.

    Hey Eddie if you are reading this call Dave or Sam and have it out with them or call Gary or Ralph. We can't wait around forever.

    and with that being said, you'd think that if "VH spirit lives on" is all about getting drunk and questionable philosophy, he'd have voted bush

    oh wait, i forgot - bush's favorite philosopher is jesus christ. that explains why bush kills so many people. [img]graemlins/wtf.gif[/img]

    and i'll just throw this in because i haven't used it yet. [img]graemlins/brickwall.gif[/img]

    I can`t believe that you call yourself a fan of music in general. Don`t wait around at all. Every time I listen to any of the records in the catalog I get the same feeling. Someone who likes music will be there when there is more music to listen to. This isn`t a professional sports team that happens to be on a losing streak. It`s a rock band that`s hasn`t released product in a while. The guys in the band don`t owe you nothing and if you think that you`re kidding yourself. Ask yourself this. Are you the kind of guy who would pay for the new record or will you pirate it off the net? If you are willing to pay for it and contribute to the artists pocket then you are probably a fan. Core fans don`t leave and never return, they hang around and wait for more stuff.

    So what your saying is that drinking and smoking yourself to death is a non-issue as long as the music is good

    Something all of you armchair Van Halen critics might want to remember, NOBODY has ever built a statue for a critic. Get off your judgemental asses and do something more constructive than worrying like a bunch of old crows about other peoples issues.

    We worry because we care. Unlike you, we want more than just more nusic. We feel greatful for what the band has given us and we take concern when we hear that a member of the band is not doing too well. Remember this... No Eddie = No Music... PERIOD

    Eddie, Dave, Alex, Mike, Sammy, and Gary have ALL contributed more art and happiness to this world than what most of us ever will.

    True, so why the fuck um let um die attitude?

    To which they have earned my eternal respect and gratitude.

    Oh respect and gratitude? Is that what you call this? Seems more like selfishness and greed to me

    this is all very weird for me. I have been listening to vh music for at least 16 years and i was in a record store and couldn't find any new stuff and thought..oh, did they break up. I didn't even know about vh3. So what. I've never even looked into a fan site before but I thought, it might be nice to hear what is happening, is the band still together?
    The sheer amount of bullshit I ( compulsively I admit ) read was to me astonshing.
    Where was it hidden that eddie was in trouble?As for all this namm stuff...I am a fan and what the hell, maybe I am just not obsessive enough about making comment on other peoples lives. I justliked the music and it is probably finished. Yes it is a shame but I pose one simple question,
    Would you prefer to hear your favourite band at their best and then end or would you pressure them into making more and more music until the law of diminishing returns really takes hold?
    There are not very many people on this planet who can make what is called "rock" music much beyond their early thirties.(VH did) Anybody who makes a list will find that it numbers around thirty "famous" people. I for one look forward to hearing what one of that elite club of wonderful guitar players has done in the film score field and if there is no more of that truly wonderful band, fuck it, they did more than most.
    Shame but, move on.....etc
    A man could lose himself in a country like this.
