    This is just one guy's opinion, which doesn't really amount to anything. Nor do I mean to sound like a master of the obvious, but I think one of the reasons EVH ,or anyone else in the VH camp for that matter, hasn't released any kind of "official statement" about the status of the band is that Edward probably feels somewhat betrayed by VH fans.
    In '85, DLR left on his own accord, so there wasn't anything anybody could do about that, and Van Halen had to move on.
    With the '96 reunion debacle, I think that's where Ed's attitude started turning sour. EVH thought that VHIII was a shining moment, but clearly, consumer America did not agree since the album only went gold. Then pressure kicks in again from not only the fans, but the record label as well, to try to get back with DLR. And all the while, Ed's attitude was, and I quote, "Get over it".
    It seems like Ed is thinking, "How dare these people tell me who I am or am not going to work with". Consequently, we the fans feel frustrated at VH for not releasing any kind of statement except for the one about the cancer.
    My opinion is that Van Halen made their bones early on by doing what they wanted. And we all bought off on it cause it was the most happening thing around. It was a magic time. Now, Ed has to accept the fact that what he wants and what the fans want are 2 different things. Only time will tell how Ed chooses to react to it.
    Again, just a humble opinion, not meant to anger anybody. "...There's a little Van Halen in everybody..."

    I don't think Eddie cares that much about his fans. He doesn't update his fans on the future of the band and he never posts on any VH message board.
    Right Now you're reading my post!
