    Well, lately I have just been kinda lurking around here, but after taking in some of the latest info to come out (some rumour) here is what I think.

    There was a post from someone saying that VH now has all rights to there catalouge and WB won't be releasing any music to radio stations or marketing it (Because they no longer have rights to it):

    This leads me to speculate this: It is obvious there are many business items on the agenda that have to be tied up before any move can be made by VH because it is becoming clear to me with this sort of information, reunion or not, VH wants the future to be theirs and theirs to determine. Many bands do this now. To break all ties with a company takes time and is tedius. They very well could have an entire album with DLR, Sammy, or #4 ready to go, but this stuff has to be sorted out first.

    Next: If there is a reunion everyone knows it will be a short term cash cow. Now, if I were in the position VH was, call it greedy if you want, but I would want as much of that money to myself as possible, and why not? They are the one's who earn it not WB. People have said here many times that WB may have dropped them cuz there is no DLR. Anyone here think that VH could have said let us out or there is no DLR? Is an expensive game of poker, but given the position VH is in what do they have to lose?

    As for Mike Anthony doing some side work, so what? Every other member of Van Halen has done some side projects. I don't see the big deal in this.

    Scotty Ross: Why keep someone on the payroll for a job that is not needed at this time? Is bad business sence, especially when it appears we are looking at a lot of legal work, and everyone knows the pace lawyer's work at. Better to let him go till everything is sorted out. He may have wanted to leave, who knows.

    I just think that it still may be premature to hit any panick buttons. Weather it is with DLR, Sammy, or dare I say #4, there is most likely another VH album to come yet, but is still going to be a bit more time. The cancer illness most likely put a lot of this off schedule as well.

    Just my thought and speculation.
    Life is something that happens when your planning something else.

    Some good arguments in there...

    But... hell... it's Van Halen.

    I personally wouldn't rule out anything at this time.

    But I wouldn't bet on a reunion or even some new releases myself.

    Welcome back, Van HALEN!!!!

    ...It's the BAND and Dave is really the cat that can front VH. He sang his ASS off and was really cool. No cheese here guys, this is filet Mignon! - Steve Lukather's comment after witnessing a Van HALEN 2007 rehearsal
