    I've been browsing here for awhile and have come to the conclusion that this place isn't much different than the PD (no offense meant). Nothing but rumors and speculation, people who clam to know about the band, same old bullshit! So let me just adress a few issues that I am personally sick of hearing about!

    1) Does Brad Starks actually have contact with the band?

    Yes he does, quite frequently too!

    2) Did Michael Anthony say anything to this Rols guy???

    NO! Mike NEVER said any of that bullshit, I know this from a Very Trusted source!

    3) Why hasn't VH made any announcement?

    Because there really is NOTHING TO ANNOUNCE! If there was, Brad Starks would have posted it at www.van-halen.com But unfortunatly there is nothing to post!

    4) What's the holdup with VH???

    The ONLY one who can answer that would be Edward Van Halen himself. I don't even think Brad knows the answer to that one!

    5)Why is the PD closed?

    I dont have a clue! I didn't ask!

    And finally let me add this: I am just as anxious, frustrated, and wanting for some sort of New VH music or some kind of tour as the rest of you, and like the rest of you I have to wait too. I sometimes wish the band would post at the PD or here or anywhere for that matter! Some little tidbit of info for the fans, but honestly, I have been following this band for many years, and my advice is "Don't hold your breath!!!" In perspective though, I also understand that they value their private lives, and would like to continue to keep them private! As "big" or "famous" a band as Van Halen is, this is a fine line to walk! I wouldn't want to do it! Keep your fans reasonably happy, and have a private life! I think they balance the act pretty well myself! So in closing I would just like to say, hang in there just a little while longer, or maybe just take a break from the boards, cause you never know what tomorrow will have in store for you! Peace!

    What message board doesn't have rumors?

    What message board doesn't have people claiming to know the band?

    Oh yeah... And the different "bullshit" here is that your thread would already be closed there. "Attacking the official VH website is not permitted."

    Uh, isn't the use of your supposed "Very Trusted" source a dreaded rumor on your part?

    Why, yes, yes it is.

    It's hypocritical to slam rumors and speculation and then jump in...

    On the contrary I don't think they are keeping the fans reasonably happy. Of course they are entitled to their private lives but if the band are a going concern then they are not doing anything at all to keep the fans even interested, let alone happy.

    Thanks for the 'great' words of wisdom. When there is no news from the band, speculation arises. And if you check out the rumor mill, there hasn't been too many in a long time. The Pleasure Dome had a lot more rumors floating around. Remember the infamous 'Michael Jackson'? Anyway, I've always enjoyed posting at VHForums a little more than the PD. The mods at the PD have to weed out some of the bad eggs more.

    Which totally and completely discredits your entire post. The only people that really know what happened were the two people that Mike talked to and Mike himself. Those two people, who other than the Van Halen connection, don't really know each other both told the same story. Mike, through Brad, told the opposite. Given what little evidence we have, two unique testimonies that conclude the same information are more powerful than one dissenting opinion.

    This should be easy enough to see, unless of course you're someone that thinks the members of Van Halen are infallible gods and Brad is their prophet.

    Out of curiosity... was Kevin present in AZ with Mike when the alleged conversation didn't occur?

    Is it possible he's towing the company line by his employer Mr Anthony?

    Oh, I am in such awe of you now. Who gives a fuck? If you are so in the know, if you are so important and hate the speculation and frustration that occurs on this forum, do you really need to put forth a pathetic "let's clear everything up" post as if you're working for the band or something and then get extremely defensive because we doubt you and YOU hung out with Kevin Dugan? I could give a flying fuck. Good for you. Doesn't mean I take your opinion any more seriously. Your post should be in the rumor mill...where everyone else's stories from a "trusted" source go. Right now, Eddie Van Halen himself could make an announcement on what's going on and I wouldn't believe it.

    Go away.

    Pumpkinhead, I believe you when you say Kevin told you that, but my opinion is that that is just the company line right now. I'm pretty sure Kevin wasn't at the event with Mike, so his saying Mike didn't say it, is the equivalent of Brad saying Mike didn't say it. They are both just telling people what Mike has told them. That doesn't make anyone a liar in my book if Mike was under orders not to talk and was just throwing those guys a bone.
    Now for the tough love part of the deal.

    1. If Brad outright lied to us at the Dome without even talking to Mike, that is BULLSHIT! I doubt it.

    2. If Kevin lied to you about what he knows, then he is just looking out for his job. Who knows?

    3. If Rols lied about what Mike said, then he is a piece of shit that that was looking for some free publicity to drum up some biz. I hope not!

    4. If FULLBUGAZ is lying, well, that thought doesn't enter the process.

    5.If Mike told Brad and Kevin that he didn't say this stuff, for whatever reason, then how are Brad and Kevin to know anything different to tell people. They both work for and are friends of VH, so they probably have a trust in what they are told by members of the band.

    6. If Mike said all this stuff just for the sake of fucking with the fans, that is the rankest form of BULLSHIT that I know of. If this winds up being the case, which I doubt, I will not support the band in any way in the future.

    7. I think Mike told both Rols and FULLBUGZ what they've reported. I think when this news made it to the Dome, that Brad called Mike when he saw it wanting to put either a fact or fiction stamp on it, Mike told him for whatever reasons that he didn't say it and for Brad to post to that effect on the Dome so as to avoid any confusion, at least on the point of what the band was reporting through its webmaster on its official site. Brad posts that it is BULLSHIT, that Mike didn't say it. I choose to believe that this is what is going on, as it allows for a reunion to be happening shortly. The DJ character over at the Army says everything becomes offical 1/1/02. I'll latch onto any info that gives the reunion a chance of happening. I just don't think Mike would lie to a fan to his face. The denial on the official site is hopefully for legal reasons. If not, we have some sick people who have gained our trust and abused it for their own reasons. I choose to believe ROls, FULLBUGAZ and Brad. If Mike told Brad a little lie to keep everything cool, and also took a little heat from the VH bros. for throwing us a bone, then I raise my glass and toast his ass! If people could put their distrust and hatred for Brad aside for minute to look at it this way, it can provide an outlook with a very positive outcome, one alot of us have been waiting 15 years for. Just my opinion, slam it if you choose, but at least be openminded enough to see it as a real possibility.
