    After listening to Diamond Dave's audio comments on Davidleeroth.com, I am afraid that Dave's been booted again. There has been enough activity circling around that Van Halen is working on a new album based on Mike Anthony's recent comments and others about Ed's new/old guitar.

    However, if Dave hasn't worked with the band since July 2000, that means the band is recording with another singer. I have no clue who it could be, but we know its not Dave.

    Whoever it is, I'm done with VH. They dragged this thing on way too long.

    Pick another band.

    Dave can't be out of something he was never back in.

    Allied Forces you are right on the money!!!!
    VH has dragged this on way too long, [img]smilies/sleep.gif[/img] this is bullshit.

    But, I do have a question. If DLR is notback with VH, why would we have not heard this news from DLR himself? There would be no reason for him to remain silent? [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img]

    I'm sure he's hoping something can be worked out. The reunion ain't dead, sounds to me like money is the main issue at this point.

    I don't know. If they were getting along great and thought they were creating good music, I think they'd lead with their hearts and just go for it. They wouldn't let petty money squabbles stop them. I know that sounds naive, but I just think that if they thought there was a long term future, they'd be more likely to overlook the money now, knowing in the future it would be pouring in (say from a second album and a second tour).

    To me, Dave's comments indicate that they aren't getting along. Which I guess is fine, but this just strengthens my belief that it will be one album, one tour, and that's it for this lineup. Of course, days like today make me wonder if we'll even get that much.

    You know, I'm at the point now where I wish they'd just tell the truth. If it's over, it's over, no hard feelings from me. They don't owe me an album or a tour or anything. And they certainly don't owe it to me to stay together if they can't stand each other. It's getting to the point where it seems like they are just staying together (or trying to get together) to get one last chunk of cash out of me to pad the retirement party.

    I don't think it's about money. Dave's personality seems to be motivated by something he can't buy, fame.

    I agree, Glenn. It's time for them to tell us what's going on. If there's nothing to say, just say that.

    This is a big turn around for me. I really hadn't cared if they didn't say anything before. Now that Dave has spoken about his involvement with Ed last year directly, I think the time for silence is over.

    To a degree, absolutely it's about money. Dave wants to get paid, and rightly so.

    I think VH will definitely have to talk now.

    Again, the idea that they would be argueing so hard over money leads me to believe that even they know that this is probably a one time only thing. I agree that Dave deserves to be paid equally, but if he believed that they were going to get 3 albums and 3 tours out of this, I'm sure he'd do the first one without fighting too hard over money. Dave's solo career is dead, this is his last shot a real money, so if he's holding out for more, I'm inclined to believe that he's aware that this is probably going to be his last kick at it.

    Now, if the brothers are trying to dick Dave out of money, it's just another example of how they seem to think that the singers aren't very important to the band.

    nah, this ain't just a money thing, i just hope EVH health is okay.

    what if DLR makes the same mistake again like in 1985?

    obviously patience ain't his thing.

    we'll see what happens or what won't happen?

    in the meantime, just listen to:
    "vanhalenradio.com"

    i like the heartbeat in the menu-bar! would be a nice intro for a VH song

    cheers,

    Or maybe change the sound to that of water rushing in the hull of a ship! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I hate to sound so negative, but good gawd almighty! This is ridiculous! Nearly 3 years and all we know is Ed has a new haircut and he's trying to get his music "bulletproof" before they release it. I think it's about time for all of us to wake up and realize that it's 2001, not 1981, the classic VH we all knew and loved is NOT coming back and if we want to revisit our youth, get some boots or whip out Fair Warning. Heck, I'm so disgusted with all this waiting that I'm starting to consider dumping out my live shows just because they are a reminder to me of how I've been wasting my time for the past 2 years collecting these things.

    (CLANG!!) Common sense gets knocked into CK's head...

    Alright, whatever. I'm off the soapbox, but I think I'm going to look forward to the Aerosmith tour this summer. At least I can look forward to SOMETHING this year.

    It's over, if they haev'nt really talked since July, then there is no reason to think it is still a go. Game Over. Now it's time for VH to make a statement.

    Well, realistically there are only two possible truths behind this.

    1. Dave's comments are nothing but smokescreen to get us talking and confused.

    2. Dave is telling the truth and trying to force his hand back into VH.

    Now, ASSUMING Dave isn't really back... anyone want to guess who the name we all know is?

    Billy Idol?
    Steve Perry?
    David Coverdale?
    DAVID HASSELHOFF?
