    It seems pretty clear to me now. I'm not saying it's definite, but Van Halen left WB because the band has broken up and they still want to keep quiet about it for a while. This has gotta be it. Mikey said "fine" and went to play with Sammy. I mean, do you honestly think the band would be happy about Mikey playing with Sammy if they were still together?

    It's over. It's gotta be over. I hope I eat my words, but Dave ain't back, there's no singer, Alex hasn't been heard from, Ed hasn't made a positive statement in years and Mike is off playing with "the traitor." No label, no singer, no bass player...come on, guys. We should all wake up. If they don't want to tell us the truth, they can go fuck themselves.

    Don't forget The Eagles waited two years before they told anyone that they had broken up. The Beatles waited almost a year.

    I hope it ain't true.

    It may look that way but I think it just shows that nothing new is in the near future.

    Hell Ed and Al do the movie thing all the time so Mikey stepped out to do his own thing.

    If they were definitely retiring VH Mikey would've said he left the band. He wouldn't announce the end of the band but he would say he left.

    All IMHO of course because when it comes to VH...WHO THE FUCK KNOWS? [img]tongue.gif[/img]

    Rikk I agree, and what I really resent is not so much that they're done, but that they're not officially saying so, teasing their fans and jerking us around.

    I still can't believe Eddie doesn't want to go out on top, if only for personal pride. Then again, he probably thinks that VDIII is going out on top

    Bands don't necessarily have to announce break-ups...The Police never did...

    Yeah but with this bands history of revolving band members and the allowance of rampant speculation, you'd think they would announce a breakup.
    Soundgarden is a recent example.

    Yeah at least Soundgarden had the dignity to come clean and announce it fairly quickly. When they announced the breakup, it had only been a couple of months since their last show.

    With Van Halen, it's been over three fucking years since the last show, and over two years without a singer. What a joke. And yet they continue to act like they're still together. Makes me sick.

    The thing is VH doesn't even know if they're broken up or not.

    Mass chaos in VH land. And who truly suffers but the fans.

    No I sure do not think that the band would be happy about MA playing with Sammy if they were still together. I remember reading that EVH was pretty pissed about Sammy's unboxed!

    Eddie the bitter old liar has always bitched and whined when anyone else in the band did any side projects, but he's done several himself (Beat It, Starfleet, Wild Life, Lost Boys, etc). Just more Van Hypocrisy.

    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

    Once again, exactly.

    Maybe MA finally said fuck you and did it anyway. It doesn't neccessarily mean the band is kaput. They could be just idle. And Ed could be doing something else also.

    As usual...You never know.
