    Do you think it will be a big splashy thing with a news conference with Dave at the front with a big grin on his face (Eddie in background with a grimice) or do you think it will just kinda slip through i.e. a new song just suddenly appears on the radio and then a low key type announcement?

    This topic probably has been brought up before, but what the hell with all the latest rumours popping up!

    Judging by the continued media silence of the band, I'd honestly expect them NOT to announce the singer but say, "Buy the album when it comes out. You'll see then."

    If they did take the suicidal route with a 4th singer and not announce it before the album's release there wouldn't BE an album release, because WB and the retail chains aren't going to take the huge losses of millions of CD's being returned for refunds.

    Also, if Dave (or to humor the ChedHeads, even Sammy) is the singer, there is no way in Hell they will be able to keep a lid on it, once the record is scheduled for release.

    So there's no way any album is hitting the stores without knowing whether or not the Lying Dutchmen screwed us again...

    I have no idea how it might be announced ?!

    However, it they wanted to do it up right, they should do something live from the 5150 studio on the net....that would be kool !!

    I don't have a clue.

    Dave would probably like it to be a huge extravaganza while Eddie would probably want it low-key.

    Big press conference? You mean the kind they break into regularly scheduled programming with? No. Nobody really gives a shit who the singer is, at least nobody beyond a small group of fans. People haven't given a shit about Van Halen since 1996.

    If they want attention (which they would) they'll have to tie it in with some big music awards show. Prior to that, they'll have to put out a press release to get people to watch the big awards show. And this time they'll have to do more than stand around like a bunch of clowns.

    Odds are you'll hear about it here and on VHND first. There'll be signs that something is up, the official site won't be able to acknowledge or discuss those signs for fear of screwing up the process. It'll show up on vh.com after it happens; not before.

    Well, obviously Van Halen has no clue that there is a fascinating medium out there called the Internet.

    So, your guess is as good as mine!
