    What I mean is, many fans, including myself, are pissed off at Van Halen.

    What would it take for the band to get into good graces with their fans?

    Don't get me wrong. I'm not a person that thinks that Halen owes me anything, but, up until recently, I really bought into the "we (Van Halen) really give a shit about our fans".

    So what is it? For me, it would have to be stuff that record companies hate, like a double album, or a Metallica style "$5.98 Garage Days" cd.

    how about some new music for starters?!

    seriously though, i hope that the silence is because they're planning to announce something big but keep getting delayed e.g. lawyers and not that they either have little or no decency towards the fans or are unable to employ a decent spokesperson/webmaster. it doesn't take much to pay someone to write "van halen is still working towards a new album" every month. that kind of statement would at least please fans for a while as they'd know the band still existed.

    What would it take to get VH back in good graces with their fans? An album and a tour with either Dave or Sammy!

    A new album.

    A U.S. tour with Dave.

    An international tour with both Dave and Sammy.

    Any one of these would be a start.

    An interview on VH1. Just to let us FANS know what the bands plans are for the future. Is that asking too much?

    I agree. Definately issue some kind of statement and acknowledge that either its over or something will take place at some juncture. The more they delay, the more people the'll lose. I think its been pretty apparant lately. I saw them on the tour with Cherone and only 7,000 people attended(capacity was 21,000) I doubt that unless they tour with Roth again, they could even fill our tiny 2,000 seat theatre arena.

    It would make me happy to see Eddie and maybe Alex release some vocal-free music. Just some rock fusion, like Joe Satriani. It wouldn't be a commercial success, so they'll probably never do it. But I would sure dig that!
