    Honestly it sounds to me like VH just kinda stopped talking to Dave and didn't tell
    him what is going on. And it also sounds like he's trying to force them to make some
    sort of a statement.
    ---
    So letīs sum it up...

    6-7 Songs recorded with Gary - LEFT
    3 Songs recorded with Dave - NOT IN
    18 Months passed by - "NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS"

    In the meantime another famous guitarist called SANTANA puts out one MAJOR record.

    Back in 1986 when the record 5150 was done Eddie tossed around the same idea...
    "doing an album with a different vocalist for each track. Singers considered included Phil Collins, Joe Cocker, Mike Rutherford and much more,
    but it would have been a scheduling nightmare, and Al convinced Ed that it worked only for one album..." [S.86 The Van Halen Encyclopedia]

    Maybe this is now the plan and the clue for everything ?

    To put out an album with different singers ! So dave has done his job last year, they payed him for and thats it.

    Since there is still no album out, dave wants to know what is going on, the VH camp
    refused any contact and dave is once more the man who uses the public ( remember the open letter in 1996) to stress a response ?

    I don't know. Realistically, if this was anything more than a work (which it could well be) you'd think DLR would have said something a few months back.

    Eighteen months seems like a long time to sit on your can waiting for someone to call you.

    If Eddie releases an album like this now, with the Van Halen name on it, he'll be finished. He'll get abused like a five foot center in the post. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    I doubt Warner Brothers would even allow this at this point anyway. I can't imagine it selling all that well, unless there were some really big singers on it.

    I agree but what left ?

    If the Dave audio is legit - due to the fact it has been edited - then DAVE IS OUT !

    Brad ad PD stated that Sammy is NOT IN !

    Read at http://www.van-halen.com/newsite/ubb...ML/010726.html

    So they got singer #4 now at 5150 or a they do a multiple singer album wich will explain the time they need to complete it!

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>I don't think it's that cut and dried. I don't think it's necessarily over between Dave and VH, even though I think that audio clip is 100% legit. My feeling is that the reunion is not on solid ground by any means, but it isn't over, if only because VH has to know that they are virtually out of options if they want to continue as a band.

    Sounds good to me.

    But

    Ed, AL & Mike are no idiots and I think they have realised like you said that they are virtually out of options.
    So if dave is not in contact with them since 3/4 year, what the hell they [Ed, AL & Mike]are doing ?
    Recording ?
    The past 9 months ?
    Without a singer ?
    Not trying to work things out with dave ?
    Still holding on with "NO NEWS"
    Sounds very strange to me [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img]
