    I have been very critical of this whole situation as late and been angry about it.

    Now after hearing that Dave and Van Halen are still not talking, I say that the TRUE Van Halen fans unite and offer our support to them.

    Eddie said in the golf magazine that Dave knows where he lives.
    response: Dave and Van Halen are still not talking.

    Dave is working on his dvd with Lars "I'll sue you" Ulrich, Kirk "I'll do what Lars tell me to" Hammett, Joe "I'm older than dirt" Cocker, and Niles "disco fever" Rogers.
    response Dave and Van Halen are still not talking.

    Eddie Van Halen "we have 3 albums worth of songs, but short on singers".
    response You guessed it, Dave and Van Halen are still not talking.

    Most of us have been blaming EVH and not DLR for the holdup of the reunion.

    I say FUCK the reunion EDDIE, go get yourself a singer that wants to be a part of the Van Halen musical machine.
    To be in a band of Van Halen's stature is an honor and should be treated as such.

    Let the reunoin take place at the Hall of Fame like most bands do, and then continue to make music with someone that actually wants to make music and not be in it for self promotion.

    I'll throw my hat into the ring for singer, I can't sing, but I would sure give it a try and cherish every moment of it.

    No offense, but didn't they try this back in 98 and it bombed? I personally liked the album and was glad van Halen was doing just that, but the masses thought differently. They want Roth.
    Your favorite band sucks.

    Eddymon, you kill me bro!

    one minute your meeting deep throat(the informant not the actress ) in parking garages getting the florida crop report(see Eddie Murphey) and the next minute your on top of the tower on some college campus in Texas!

    I think Dave wants in Van Halen but it's Eddie who is putting the kibosh on it. my reasoning is that Dave's lawyers appear to be trying to get Dave "all the way in the band" while Ed's camps are wanting to keep him an employee(see Ace and Peter's deal during the KISS reunion)--my faith in this comes from the fact that Eddie himself confirmed the "coming together" to write the 'hands fell off the clock' music---both camps have said that the session went great--then it appears Dave went and put the lawyers into motion to seal the deal.

    so we take the complicated task of working out the contratcs and other money arrangements that give more people that deserve it a slice of the reunion pie and add Ed's cancer problems then remember Dave's "while our clothes are still in fashion" comments and there's a good chance that things are still moving ahead

    I still think the whole "Metallica thing" is blown out of proportion(a buddy of mine was working on something in a studio one time and ran into Garth Brooks there but that doesn't mean he was working with Garth Brooks) and was just a chance meeting one day.

    but it's money in the bank that Roth will be back in the VH fold providing Eddie is healthy! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    and I refuse to fall into the "if we don't comment on it or just hold out long enough they'll forget about the reunion" school of thought!!

    I will never settle for anything other than a reunion! NEVER!!! NEVER!!!!!!!! [img]graemlins/devil.gif[/img]

    hell they can go sell girl scout cookies in 5 years for all I care--just give me and the rest of the fans who have been waiting for 16 years for the return of the greatest American rock and roll band ever at least one album and tour!!

    No but he did find out that Garth was doing that Chris Gaines thing about a year before everyone else did!-Garth came into the room where my buddy's band was working on their CD and he showed them some pictures and told them about the concept!

    You flip flop worse than a stack of flap jacks at the local IHOP.
    One bandwagon one week the other the next. Show some solid proof with either side being the holdup......and I'm not talking from that "inside" connection either.
    Truth is no one knows the truth except those directly involved.

    Support Van Halen? Absolutely.

    Support Eddie hammering the final nail in his coffin? Absolutely not.

    It really is as simple as that.

    I say, 'do something/anything', then I'll make a decision about whether or not I want to support it.

    Gonna send this to the Opinions Forum. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    I don't understand why this had to be moved to opinions/speculations, but whatever....

    Now if VH does nothing by midnight December 31, 2002. I want Brett to forever ban me from this place because I will no longer be a Van Halen fan of anything they do from that day forward.

    Do you think it has anything to do with the fact that this thread is your OPINION of what should happen? It's not called the OPINIONS Forum by accident!

    Look at the main page of the Links, here's the parameters of the Opinions/Speculation Forum;

    If you want to share your personal feelings on issues with regards to the band, this is the place to do it. Please keep discussions of this nature in this forum only!
    Thank you!! [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Yes, a 4th singer would potentially kill any remaining commercial appeal for Van Halen, but honestly, suppose that's the only way anyone will ever hear new Van Halen material?

    Damn, you have to be masochistic or one hell of a Roth trooper to say, "I'd rather hear nothing than something new with someone else!"

    I guess a little of both, Stuffy.

    I was "masochistic" to keep buying Van Hagar albums, in hope that they would give up the cheese ballads. As far as me being a "Roth trooper", I think that's obvious. Roth paratrooper even.

    But I prefer a CD that I can put on and listen all the way through to one where I have to skip half the songs because of cheese content.

    And as far as "nothing rather than something with a new singer" - VDIII proved beyond a reasonable doubt why that is the reality. This is why it is literally Dave or the Grave.

    No way I'm getting on this horse. Eddymons just as likely to change bandwagons later today and I won't have a fearless leader to guide me! :lost:

    Plus I think if I hear the term 'true fan' one more time I'll throw up. Who the hell are you to judge my fandom by wether or not I get on your damn cart?
    A little zen....... Headed your way.......
