    I COMPLETELY understand the fact that Van Halen and their management do not want to say a peep about who the singer is until ALL systems are go, i.e. the album is done and waiting to be shipped, the tour is all planned out, and all 4 members are getting along so well that there's NO CHANCE whatsoever of gunfights breaking out on the road. They DO NOT want another fiasco like they had in '96, where everyone THOUGHT they were getting together, but then felt FISTFUCKED and just threw up their hands when they found out it was going to be singer #3. In this respect the band is absolutely taking the right tack, and I would think they were INSANE if they were to have any OTHER strategy.

    HOWEVER, the fact that Michael has publicly acknowledged the fact that they're working on a record, and at least HOPE to go on tour starting later this year (and this IS an OFFICIALLY VERIFIED statement, by the way, since Brad posted it in that wonderful Dome) leaves ABSOLUTELY NO REASON why the guys can't send a simple message to their fans, most conveniently by way of their Website, just saying, "Hi, how are you doin'? We're currently working on a new record, it should kick major ass, we hope to see you on the road sometime soon. We'll keep you posted. -- Eddie, Alex, Mike." THAT'S ALL I'VE EVER, EVER, EVER BEEN ASKING FOR IN ALL MY DAYS ON THE FRIGGIN' PD!!!! AND IT WOULDN'T GIVE AWAY A DAMN THING REGARDING THE SINGER SITUATION, OR EVEN NAIL THEM DOWN TO ANY SPECIFIC DATES!!! EVERY OTHER BAND IN THE WORLD PAYS AT LEAST THIS MUCH COURTESY TO THEIR FANS -- LOOK AT THE WEB PAGES OF METALLICA, U2, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, ETC., ETC.!!! This is NOT asking too much, it takes almost ZERO time out of their busy schedules, and it earns them ENORMOUS points in the minds and hearts of those who have loved their work and paid their bills for 23 YEARS!!! GET A CLUE, GUYS! I LOVE YOU GUYS BUT YOU'RE REALLY SHOOTING YOURSELVES IN THE BALLS HERE!!! And Brad, this included YOU -- DON'T BE A YES-MAN!!! Tell them the truth about what they must do -- it ain't much!!!

    (Thank you).

    FISTFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCCCCCCCCKKK!!!

    You won't find anyone defending the PD here.

    Months ago I would have told you to chill out, it'll all come together soon. But now I am agreeing with you. It wouldn't kill them to at least tell us "Hey we are working on a new record and it should be out soon." That's IT, no info on who's singing would even be needed for me to be happier. Jsut SOME acknowedgment "Officiall" from the band that "All systems are go" on a new album that is sometime on the way.


    Is that too much to ask??? I don't wanna sound like a dick here, I love VH, but as Dr. Evil would say "Throw me a freakin' bone here, people..."

    You know, realisitcally it doesn't take much effort to get their toadie Brad to write a line in the updates that says, "Hi all, we're hard at work on the new album and you'll hear something definite when we finish it."

    I guess, for whatever enlightened reason, the powers that be in the band either don't want to say that, don't think they need to, or still have totally missed the boat on the whole internet thing and don't realize how many fans they have on here.
