    Well looks like VH is down for the count.
    Will they make new music again?

    YES

    Wil it bee soon?

    NO

    Why do I think this you may ask?

    It seems to me that the yearly summer concert/tour business is very, very competitive for the music fans dollar. It cost's a ton-o-dough to hit the road and actaully turn a profit when all is said and done. No matter what Sammy and Dave wanted to do, the suit dweeb-bean counters behind the scenes had to take a good look at this tour(investment) and see if it had a
    chance to return a profit when all was said and done.

    I would bet my VH autographed copy of "Fair Warning" that one of the things they needed to figure out was if VH was going to have anything new released or go on tour themselves. With promoters fighting over concert go-er's money it would not make sense to put on a tour of VH "used to bee's" thats would directly compete with the real deal.

    Sammy and Dave know that there is a huge die hard VH fan base that is chompin at the bit for the band. If the Real VH wont or can't (as to why would be boring, rehashed speculation) give the fans what they want they would be fools to pass up this chance to make some heavy duty cash.

    AS you can see money is mentioned quite a bit on this topic. Thats becuase no matter what you would like to believe these cats are IN IT for the $. Its their "job" and no one works a job for free. If they did they would be a volounteer. Its called "Show Business" for a reason. Without the business there would be no show.

    So bottom line. Sam and Dave hit the road for the summer. VH does whatever they are going to do forthe time being but from a business stand point nothing new from them for at least another year.The wait continues but life goes on without them. Peace I&SS

    Real VH???

    Meaning what?

    Eddie, his registered trademarks and his MIA brother?

    The only "real" that is would be REAL pathetic.

    REAL VH was, and will always remain Dave, Eddie, Mikey, and Alex.

    Dave, Sammy, and possibly Mikey will be more "real" than the current state of the Lying Dutchmen.

    Come on FORD give Eddie a break already. I know he's done some crappy things in the past, but all signs are pointing towards him being very sick. If he's still sick with cancer can you really blame him for the silence or not wanting to go out on a huge tour?

    We don't know the facts. If this cancer thing is not gone and has in fact spread, you, me and everyone else here that has been hammering him should feel pretty stupid.

    Lets give the man some slack.

    Real meaning the VH brothers with whatever line-up. Don't confuse "Real" with The Best possible lineup. I to am an old school VH fan BUT Van Halen owns the name and can tour as such, Thats what I meant. I&SS

    Given that summer concerts are always announced in the late winter/early spring...

    Who the hell was still expecting the invisible men to go on tour this year?

    Just got this mental picture in my mind of Dave, Sammy, and Mikey harmonizing on "Happy Trails" at the end of the show......

    "I tell you what!! Fuck the concert, let's all walk across the river and get a drink, whattya say?? "

    (Of course, across the river from The Gorge is basically nothing but sand, sage, and snakes, but that's beside the point.)

    Now he's just such a real Van Halen fan. He thinks of Van Halen, and the first thing that comes to mind is a lame cover tune...priceless. [img]redface.gif[/img]

    Are you also going to say that "Dancing in The Streets" is a great cover? Cause that's some REAL devotion. Clueless.

    I'll give him lots of slack. But it would be nice if him or Valarie would at least make some sort of statement to the fact that he is concerned about his health and won't be performing any time too soon. Just throw us a scrap. Hell if that happens, we'll all be on his side. Until then, he going to get hit a bit in the forums and in general.

    I hear ya. I don't know why Eddie is giving us the silent treatment.

    If he wants to retire, then why not tell us?
