    My sources tell me Edward is delaying the album until Napster goes away....

    He has always been very anti-bootleg, and he hates Napster with a passion.

    There you have it- something that simple.

    So are your sources the brother of the girl Mikey once dated in high school that's married to his former guitar tech cause Mikey referred him to her but she doesn't see him (Mikey) anymore. And the former guitar tech still talks to Ed's g.t. so he gets his info via him.

    It would be kind of crazy to try to outwait Napster, because it certainly doesn't look like it'll be gone anytime soon. Even if it does go, someone else will just fill the void.

    I heard that VH is anti bootleg, but at least they're smart enough to not bother complaining about it in public.

    If I was an artist, I wouldn't worry about bootlegs too much. Recording a concert is one thing, but it isn't the same as having the studio album.

    And as far as people just downloading them and being done with it, unless you piss the people off like Lars Ul-Rich did you're usually safe. The majority of people, based solely on human psychology, would rather have a fancy package and painted CD of the thing than something that just has the songs and is free. Plus I think releasing the single off an album in that format can cause a lot of excitement, since I know I'd never have heard Serious JuJu without it being on Napster, and since I avoid radio in this city picking up the singles from the upcoming Collective Soul album got me more excited about that one too.

    Honestly, I think the whole idea of MP3s costing the companies money is a myth. The moral and legal issues behind it, however, are a bit stickier.

    I still havent heard the record companys explain how CD sales have risen continuously over the last year, despite the evil of napster. 6% last quarter I think. Is it possible they are being a shade greedy?

    Ed was interviewed by the Inside and had "Dave is Back..." in his boom box--checkin' to see if three tunes were even Van Halen demos at all.
