    I think Ed is probably messing around in 5150, crying over spilt milk. It would seem, that he tried to come to financial terms with Dave and they got into a take it or leave it situation. Dave has obviously decided to leave it. At this point Ed really doesn't have many good options, so he is probably examining the remaining ones.

    Right now the Van Halen contingent is doing a couple of things. Eddie is in his studio, laying down basic tracks that he will use on the next Van Halen studio recording. He has had time to get over the shock of Sammy and Dave touring the country together. Having said that, I think, I hope, Eddie is smart enough to be monitoring the tour in an attempt to reunite with the public's true favorite from the tour. From all indications, and I did see the show in St. Louis on 6/7, that would be none other than the Red Rocker himself Sammy Hagar. "Having said that", Eddie has an even bigger obstacle to overcome and that is convincing Sammy to rejoin Van Halen. Sammy's current situation is sweet. He is back to being a solo artist. He calls the shots at will, and so far his shots have been bullseyes. He is consistently the crowd favorite on the current tour, his Cabo Wabo franchise is more popular than ever, his Tequila is a huge cash cow, he basically does what he wants and to hell with democracy. We all know that Van Halen in Eddie's baby. If Sammy gets back with Eddie, it will be Sammy singing lead in Eddie's band and I don't think Sammy is at a place in his life right now where he is ready to do that. I wouldn't if I were him. Eddie is definitely not going to take a back seat to Sammy or anyone for that matter. So getting Sammy back in the band is going to take some huge negotiating. As far as Dave getting back with VH. I think that would be a huge mistake. After seeing Dave in St. Louis, Eddie would be making a huge mistake bringing him back in. I was set to give Dave back the lead singing reigns and was bucking for Eddie to bite the bullet and reunite with DLR. Give the fans what they've been foaming at the mouth for so long. But Dave's performance completely laid any hopes of that happening to rest as far as I'm concerned. Without a doubt, Eddie is a one in a million musician. But he is in no way capable of carrying that band on his shoulders alone and if he brings Dave back into the fold that is exactly what he will be doing. I don't think Eddie would want to carry Dave anyway. If you have any hopes of seeing a Van Halen reuion. As remote as it is, put your "Dreams" on a Sammy reuion and keep listening to you DLR Van Halen version CDs.

    Harris my friend. For you to assume Sammy is the winner in this whole.....tour thing, is just nuts. You know there are just as many Dave fans that feel he is the "winner". THe only "winners" are, Dave and Sammy's bank accounts. CHA-CHING!$!$!$!$!$!$!$!$!$!

    You're being far too "vague" for some people around here.

    You need to define "Van Halen", as it's an entity that has many different aspects and sub-topics... do you mean "Van Halen" as in Eddie and Alex, does Mike still factor into the equation? "Van Halen" with Sammy, Dave or a 4th singer, or if it contained anyone other than Dave would it still be "Van Halen"? What if it were an instrumental project, for crissakes?!

    You see, you can't just go throwing all these "vague" terms around, we need precise, intricately-detailed, compiled and alphabetized definitions... LOTS of 'em, covering any and every possible context of the term "Van Halen". (and don't forget the sub-topics!)

    We, the Hyperbole Police DEMAND definitions dammit! DEFINE OR DIE, you've been warned...

    Wow, someone is really having a bad day. Let it go big guy. I just asked you to define what you were trying to say, that's all.

    It's no great shakes to come onto a Van Halen board and say something like "Van Halen was extremely Influential". Well DUH! What do you expect people to say?? DAVE R00LZ!

    I said a helluva lot more than that, and I would've told you anything you wanted to know, but for some strange reason, after badgering me for details, you didn't want to provide your own.

    Says an awful lot about the strength of your convictions, doesn't it?

    The offer still stands, you want definitions, ask for them specifically and you'll get them, that is after all, what you insisted from me, right?

    Just practice what ya preach, man... it's all I ask for.

    #1 Diamond Dave completely stole the show in ol' St. Lou!!!!!! Sam the sham should be opening every show for the mighty David Lee Roth!!!!!!
    #2 Did Eddie moniter the fan's 'favourite' in '97??????
    #3 I, for one, will continue to follow the world's greates' entertainer(that's Diamond Dave)--I don't really give a damn 'bout Sam(tired of his Van Hagar pop, screechin' and preachin', solo junk, an' tempo killin' ballads) or Van Halen if DLR ain't the quarterback.

    Deaf Jerry Lewis or whatever your name is. At least Sammy has still got all his own hair. Now let's hear a snappy come back on that one. Yez, Yez, Yez! Lawdy Lawd!

    Here is what I think.

    Ed is experimenting with different singers. If they have enough good stuff they will release a whole album with various vocalists. If they don't have enough good material, they will release a boxed set that includes the good stuff from the guest singers that they have.

    After that I predict Sammy will reunite with VH. Ed and Sammy are both searching for that old magic in different ways. Sammy is doing things like Planet Us and playing with the guys from Metallica, but he will not find it. He will become bored, his urge to create great music will overpower his stubbornness. Mike will convince them both to get back together. Not for the money, but I think musically they miss each other.
    I don't think anyone in the VH camp gives a rat's ass about Dave.
    Better use it up before it gets old!
