    ... now is the perfect time for an announced reunion of the original band.

    I'm no marketing guy, but if I were them I would:
    (1) announce the reunion by the end of the month
    (2) market a boxed set of rarities from the classic VH days (perhaps, a higher quality version of Blueprint, the live Oakland tapes, etc.) for sale by Christmas with promises of more to come
    (3) release new CD by April and
    (4) headline a summer tour.

    Of course, if I were VH, I would never have hired Ray Danniels, screwed up the 1996 reunion, or picked anyone from Extreme to join the band.

    Perfect topic for the Opinions Forum, I'm going to send it over there for continued discussion. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    Personally, I would love to see this. The main problem I see is releasing the box set (no, that's not the problem, I LOVE that part) along with "promises of more to come". VH isn't made up of the type of personalities that should be promising product any earlier than about a week before its release. Just going on past behavior, they're too volatile to be promising projects six months in advance; that can only blow up in their faces.

    I'll take anything at this point. Some sort of band announcement is long overdue. I'm ready for a cd and tour to follow. After that they can do a Best Of V II and a boxed set. I hope they do a live cd as well.

    The linchpin of your dreams for the band is the original lineup reuniting.

    Since that's not about to happen anytime soon, it blows the entire thought.

    But hey, good idea anyway. They need to get their stuff in order STAT before we join the rest of the world in not caring.

    Pretty good idea but I'd change one thing. I wouldn't release a boxed set of rarities before the new album. Release the boxed set after the tour is done to keep the interest going. I would like to see them release a single or two soon.

    Don't you people know yet that Van Halen and the word smart don't belong in the same sentence, let along the same page?

    "If Van Halen was smart". Man, could you fill in THAT blank with about a million different things! [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]
    "One of the reasons I left Sabbath was because Van Halen was blowing us off the stage every night. It was embarrassing." -Ozzy Osbourne

    "When I first heard "Runnin' With The Devil" on the radio, I was stunned and found myself dizzy, walking through my high school hallways thinking, "What was THAT?!"
    Eddie Van Halen was so innovative and kicked so much ass, and David Lee Roth was for a time indisputably the Greatest Man in America.
    If aliens came down and challenged us to a Battle of the Bands to decide the fate of Planet Earth, I would feel very confident putting early Van Halen forward as our champion." -Tom Morello

    "A lot of bands mature, which means they get square; they start delivering messages. Hey, you got a message, use Western Union." -DLR

    That's the truth. Throw the word lazy in there and we've really summed everything up.
