    What would your "Van Halen.com" look like? With a few exceptions, I don't think the current official site is too bad, but it could use a little bit more

    Under the albums - have some more facts about the albums, not just what we can read off the liner notes - maybe talk about songs that were left off or other things of note that happened during the recording of the album.
    Under tours - would set lists for each show help? Some times I think they would, but then I think about you guys talking about how they rarely vary the setlist, so maybe it's not as necessary. But tour specific pictures would be nice
    Some audio would be good - classic interviews and radio promos and such. I don't know if video is worth it 'cause usually when I see video on a site it's clippy anyway, but that may just be the limitations of my own pc.

    And not making people have to dig for clues as to whether or not this band ever had more than three members at any one time!

    Yeah, that's been mentioned before. Only the "Pic of the week" might show Sammy, Dave or Gary.

    I guess it all hinges on how much cooperation you would get from the band themselves. Personally, I'd like to see literally hundreds of rare photos of the band, with alot of ones from the early club era and even prior to that. How cool would it be to see live shots of VH from before Mikey was in the band? Or shots of Mikey fronting his old band Snake? I'd love to see Van Halen put together a Beatles Anthology style book of their own with all this, but since that isn't likely to happen, how about putting them on the website.

    With all do respect to VH, I wish they did all the other cool things other bands do like official books and unreleased stuff. There's tons of books, etc, but not like other bands have.

    I think I'd probably end up begging Eddie until he agreed to open the vault and let me put some of that unreleased stuff up - not all of it, just enough to make Glenn want a boxed set even more

    I believe the current news there is still from October 10th.

    I would update that with something, anything. Even announcing what certain people in the biz are saying, even if it is a rumor, is still a report. What would it hurt to stir that pot a bit?

    Yeah, if you don't stir the pot, everything sinks to the bottom. Kinda what's happening to us.

    I'd have a big sign out front:

    "AIN'T NOTHIN' TO SEE HERE"

    And I think that would be it for a while.

    As a start they should have it so the Links is the official discussion forum and have VHND give the all the updates and news. Maybe they could learn something from how these sites are run.
    For a band the stature of VH the current official site is far to sparse with material.
    I checked out the U2 site and man that does rule.
