    I was just pondering over VH while having lunch, the recent things being said here in various topic areas about the silence, this singer/that singer. I started to think that if you were in their position right now, and forget what you want, what would you do? Right now I think VH, and Eddie are in a real shitty situation that has been in some respects created by themselves, the record company, but more importantly their so called fans. The goal of any artist is to mature and grow while exploring creativity. Van Halen is not allowed to do this as proven by the fan reaction to III. The bashing that went on over that, and the derogatory remarks on Gary even got under his skin. In effect, I suggest that it is the fans who also have played a role in the destruction of Van Halen because they will not allow Van Halen to continue and grow. I just think it is a real shame, and if I were them I wouldn't be too quick to do anything right now either, and no matter what they do or say their 'fans' are gonna tear them to shreds. If they get Dave their taking major steps backwards as he is stuck in the past and they become just another nostalgia show...get Sammy and suffer the flack of not getting Dave, go with number 4 and again, flack about no Dave and accusations of being a cover band or whatever the 'fans' conjure up. Hell at this point I too would say '@#$% all of ya' and sit at home collecting my royalty cheques. I will even go as far to say that even if Eddie did a solo thing he would get rediculed over that cause it isn't Van Halen, or it sounds like Van Halen. My point is, judging from everything that has been said over the last three years there is nothing this band can do to ever please it's fans, even when everyone says 'we want new music' they will still come under fire no matter what. Hey, I admit, if it is with Dave I'll be the first to say it is just a short term cash cow for nostalgia purposes only.

    Another thing too, whenever a band gets it real first big 'hit' or album that takes off and puts them to the top their fans always turn on them. 'They sold out' they say, a good example would be Metallica with the Black Album, I even remember AC?DC being acused of that when Back in Black came out, Def Leppard with Hysteria was another....what do people expect? A band to continuously make the same album over and over with the same guitar riff with just an extra note in it? I like bands that experiment and change direction, especially U2, because if they don't they could end up in the same situation as Van Halen, stereotyped forever.

    Oh well, there is another post for ya to bash folks! The horrible arshole Zadian has written again.

    Go over to VH's house and join Ed for a meal. I think they're serving humble pie.

    Mmmmmmm, hot pockets.

    Say, didn't this thread take a right turn into off topic silliness? [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]
