    don't alot of bands do a "Behind the Music" when they're getting ready to make their comback?

    IF they ever return they'll probably do some kind of special but I wouldn't hold your breath for "BTM"

    I think if Van Halen did something like VH-1 Behind The Music they would cash in and make a documentary of their career and release it on DVD..One with Dave and one with Sammy

    p.s. remember Eddie recorded his hip surgery and who knows they might make a documentary of their 3 1/2 years absence recording at 5150

    Van Halen on behind the music would be outstanding. I personally would like to hear more from Mike and Alex regarding what happened with Dave and Sammy's departures. VH1 seems to ask the right questions that causes a stir with bands. I would be asking "Why the silence for so long?" and "Do you think that the silence was disrespectful to fans?"

    If they ever really covered the VH soap opera properly, it could never be done in one hour.
    The VH story could take up a whole season of BTM.

    VH will probably never consent to the show, though. Not now, anyway. Currently, there's no music to be "behind."

    I really doubt that Ed would permit it. He's way too private, and I don't think he'd let someone else in like that without control over how it comes out.

    Tommy Shaw on the Styx website wrote quite a bit about the experience they had with it, and he said it was interesting how it came out. They definitely can play a side and make you look a certain way. He said that when he spoke to REO Speedwagon (they were on tour together when REO's came out) they felt the same way. The bands were fairly pleased with the results overall, (I'm guessing Gary Ricrath and Dennis DeYoung might think differently), but they were surprised and somewhat concerned at first with how it was cut and edited.

    With all that's gone on, don't expect one while Eddie is alive.

    Eddie's lawyers can stop a guy from striping a guitar, but they can't prevent Pepsi from stealing a copyrighted song? Sorry, I'm not buying that one. (I didn't buy Crystal Pepsi either, and the song had nothing to do with it)

    'Selling Out' is a term used mostly by college students who have no understanding of the business world and they think, for some misguided reason, that some of these guys are in it for the art of creating music. The art goes out the door as soon as someone signs a contract. When a pen and paper comes out you know you have moved from art to business. If you are trying to create an 'art' form to make a profit you are creating art you're selling product. This isn't to say your business can't be art but it is still your business first and your art second.

    Anyone who creates art for a living and isn't accused of 'selling out' doesn't create very good art because ain't no one buying (see DLR 1992-present).
