    Okay, time to play Devil's Advocate. What if what the fans want, isn't what Ed and Alex want?

    Bezek, do you work for the money or for the love of your job?

    All they seem to be doing is pissing of and losinf fand by the day. And not just people who post on message boards on the web. Alex Van Halen once said that "we do this for music and the people that love and listen to us, we are not in it for the money" AVH get fucked!!!

    Edward dedicated VH3 to the fans and said that Van Halen has no settled with Gary Cherone and the future looks great. EVH get fucked!!!

    What has happen to Edward and Alex!!!

    Have you forgotten about the people that REALLY made you??

    We are the ones that made you KINGS OF THE GAME for a long time!!!

    Why do you return the favour and give us THE FANS what we want!!!!!!!!!

    i agree give the fans a bone ed and al, of course vh worked to make money, to compare their job to our jobs is dumb we dont make 500,000 g's or more for 2 or 3 hours of work eihter, i dont know about your job but when i'm gone nobody is gonna say hey remember joe he was a damn good tree man, compared to hey remember eddie van halen. so t think they owe us something to.
    van halen shall return. what you think is nothing might be something after all.

    Not sure 'calling out' VH on a fansite is a really effective way of going about things, but anyway.

    Basically this is a personal opinion on the band, so I'm going to send it to the Opinions forum. Feel free to continue it there. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    The fact is that on that day in 1977 when Eddie & Alex, along with Dave & Mikey, signed their names on a dotted line in a Warner Brothers office, they ceased to be playing music just for the sake of music and started doing it as a business. To be specific, they are now under contract to one of the biggest business empires on this planet.

    This means, if you do not give your customer base (meaning us) what they want, they cease to buy your product, which was never illustrated any better than the failures of the Van Danniels III album and tour. A brand name that had never sold less than 3 million copies of each new product suddenly could only do 15% of that total. To any businessman, that is failure and a sure sign that a reevaluation of your business policies is overdue.

    Let's be real here.

    NO ONE is going to tell Van Halen what to do. No fanbase, no message board and apparently no record label.

    No one knows the specifics to what their "current" contract status is as of 2002, so for anyone to pretend they know that "they are now under contract to one of the biggest business empires on this planet" is not just an ignorant statement, but an arrogant one as well. How do YOU know what the facts are, FORD? Do you have a current contract in regards to the VH3 era? Have you been to 5150 and discussed these things with Ed?

    As is the case in SO many recording artists' contracts, there are ALWAYS loopholes and buyouts. Ed could "buy" his way out if he wanted. From what I've heard, he already had to "pay back" a bunch of money due to the lack of performance of "3".

    Plain and simple, if Ed is tired of doing what he's done for 20+ years, then so be it. People change jobs all the time. People lose their interests and certain drives. People change...period.
