    Oh yeah. They've got no choice. If they've abandoned the 'artistic' approach of VH3 after saying it was for life, then they must be going for the big bucks party rock direction right? And unless it's Dave, they're gonna have to take a pale imitation.

    Dave or the Grave, no question...

    Everyone seems to fail to mention that if Dave wants ANY sort of recognition, he needs them just as bad!!!

    It really depends on what you define "grave" as. Van Halen is never going to sell BIG numbers again without Dave or Sam. Sam is never going to sell BIG numbers again without VH. And Dave is never going to sell BIG numbers again without VH. However, any one of those combinations can continue to make music to satisfy their own artistic vision, if they're prepared to realize that their big sales days are behind them. If you're comparing it to VH's previous sales, then VH III, Red Voodoo, and DLR Band are all major failures.

    To say that it's the grave for VH without Dave ignores the fact that Dave's most recent album sold much less than the last VH album. Now I know that Dave isn't on a major label with promotion money etc, but there's nothing to suggest that Dave's next solo album (if he went that route) would sell any better than DLR Band did.

    Dave needs VH, VH needs Dave, Sammy is happy solo, and Gary is probably happy out of the VH spotlight. Sounds good to me.

    To be with David Lee Roth, or not to be a band at all - that is the question:
    Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
    The slings and arrows of outraged fandom
    Or to take the stage amongst a sea of Rothafarians,
    And by opposing end their hopes. To die- to sleep-
    No more; and by a sleep to say we end
    The history, and the thousand natural grooves
    That Wolfgang is heir to. 'Tis a consummation
    Dubiously to be wish'd. To die- to sleep.
    To sleep- perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub!
    For in that sleep of disbandment what music may come
    When we have shuffled off this massive stage,
    Must give us pause. There's the prospect
    for calamity of so short life.
    For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
    Th' critic's wrong, the Diamond man's commentary,
    The pangs of despis'd love, the lawyer's delay,
    The insolence of Warner Brothers, and the spurns
    That patient merit of th' unworthy takes,
    When he himself might his appearance make
    With bare buttocks? Who would these faithful bear,
    To grunt and sweat under a bright spotlight,
    But that the dread of something after death-
    The undiscover'd songs, from whose studio
    No listener returns- dazzles the mind,
    And makes us rather bear those singers we have
    Than fly to others that we know not of?
    Thus conscience does make cowards of us all,
    And thus the native hue of reverberation
    Is amplified o'er with the pale cast of thought,
    And enterprises of great music and movement
    With this regard their currents turn awry
    And lose the name of action.

    Van Hamlet, Act IV, scene 2000

    In other words - give us Dave already or go find something else to do!

    I hope (know) that Dave's back, but I'd hate to see everybody pack it in if he isn't. It'd be a crying shame if so much talent and skill just stopped doing what it does best.

    If they go with someone else, who will buy it? Ok, so maybe hardcore fans, but not bigtime sales. Dave is the only choice for Van Halen.
