    That's what the tour should be called.

    I guess it's nice something vaguely Van Halen is happening, but this is just for the $$. Sam and Dave are just out to make a buck.

    Sammy has stated that it would be nice to reunite VH just for fun at Cobo or something.

    But this isn't just for fun this is about the money.

    Ed said he wouldn't do it for the money.
    This might be as close to Van Halen as you can get, but it's still not Van Halen.

    Van Halen with Sam and Dave is over. Which Ed has simply stated many times.

    It's time to move on and look forward to new Van Halen endeavors.

    Yeah sure......

    Let's see what Eddie, who cannot write a song without the presence of Roth or Hagar, and sure as FUCK cannot sing, and his brother, who was apparently abducted by aliens 3 years ago, can produce on their own.

    Maybe they'll hook up with the German industrial noise band Einstuerzende Neubauten and use the recordings of Eddie's hip surgery for "songs"

    Van Halen is dead. Get used to it.

    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

    At this point I see the 4th singer scenario happening more than anything else, now that Eddie supposedly has his own label. Hey, as long as Ed doesn't mind only selling 50,000 copies, go for it!

    And needless to say, it will be "Van Halen" in name only.

    Ed can write great songs without Dave or Sammy.

    Maybe not songs that people who live in the past will like, but still great songs.

    Let's see:

    1. Sammy is a businessman.
    2. Sammy makes a living playing music.
    3. Dave makes a living playing music.
    4. Dave just blew $1 mil on a pathetic DVD.

    Well DUH they're in it for the money. What's wrong with that? [img]smile.gif[/img]

    This is gonna be the biggest LAUGHING STOCK in Rock-n-Roll.

    It's funny how they are playing VAN HALEN songs, and not Sammy Hagar, or DLR songs. Because they are nothing compared to ANYTHING Ed has written.

    Yes it's true and sad to say..

    I guess Dave owes some bills...and Sam can see the success as the past.

    Sounds like they are both spoiled little kids who can't get their way with the REAL DEAL. LOFLMFAO

    At first I thought how cool... but Dave has exploited enough... and Sammy has been a whinning Bitch since 96'

    Ed wrote all the music on all Van Halen albums. Listen to Dave's solo stuff & Sammy's -then it will be soo obviously clear [img]graemlins/sleep.gif[/img]

    Maybe he can, but he hasn't.

    It's pretty obvious it's for the money - it's the music business, the bottom line is money just as in any other business. But you only make money if people are prepared to pay for the product.

    Other than that, I don't see why anyone would get pissy and whiney about this tour. Dave and Sam are out there playing, the brothers aren't - end of story.

    It's for the money, it's for redemption, revenge, publicity, blah blah blah. Jesus Christ, we rag on these guys for not doing shit and now we've got dickheads raggin' on em' for touring?? Anyway you slice it, this tour is generating interest in the music that we all love so much, and if the guys can win a few NEW (young, old whatever) FANS well, wouldn't that be cool????

    Uhh, where did you get the idea they were playing ONLY Van Halen songs? That's not even close to being correct.

    Perhaps DAVE will be doing VH ONLY, but Sam has got a bunch of other tunes, VH included, that he can and will be performing.

    And so what if they decide to do strictly their own respective VH era songs? They each helped write them (lyrically and musically) so why not perform them? The Brothers sure aren't getting too much use out of them these days.

    I'm not seeing why there is a small contingent out there BITCHING about this! "VAN HALEN" as a band are done!! So why are you complaining that the 2 active former lead singers, who Ed and Al apparently want nothing to do with, are deciding to go out and make a living by performing songs from each of their own musical legacy?
