    Apologies if this topic has been covered here before, but has anyone ever wondered if any celebrities near and dear to our hearts actually post here?

    What would stop Ed, Alex, Sammy, Dave, Mikey, etc., etc. from signing up annonymously and participating? Wouldn't it be wild to find out that a regular here was actually one of the band members, peeking in at us fans to keep tabs on the pulse of the fan base?

    Curious if anyone has any insight as to whether this does in fact go on...

    If there are VH members (past or present) or people close to the band lurking here and there has still been no official response from Ed and Al, that's truly a shame.

    To be honest, I wonder if the fans that are represented here are viewed as dictionary.com defines the word fan itself: 'An ardent devotee; an enthusiast.' [short for fanatic] Maybe we're not the 'base' they are concerned about pleasing.

    It seems to me that they are either after the causual MTV/Pop Radio fan that has contributed to the success of bands like Aerosmith knowing we'll be in tow anyway OR they don't care at all and Van Halen as we knew it is dead.

    Not going to turn this into a bash thread, but VH changed musically when Sam came on board, as well as Gary. VH rocketed to fame with their heavy metal incarnation, and many of us didn't mind the change with Sam to more mellow tunage. I think it reqally is pretty simple. They are people just like you and me, and they don't feel like talking right now. You're not going to go talk to your past employer about accepting a crappy job and then ask to be rehired with a promotion, right? That's kind of how I see VHIII. They don't owe us anything more. Hell yea, it would be nice, but they really don't... Like I said before. If there is no news by the time the anniversary hits, I will consider the band a wash. I know I'll here about it later if they do release something. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    A couple years ago, I had a hunch that val was posting here. I forget the user name now, but I havn't seen her/him post for a really long time.

    I heard when Scotty Ross was hangin out with them that they would read up on the boards a little bit for kicks and to keep the pulse a little. Al is pretty internet savvy. Mike has his own site so I wouldn't be suprised at all if he were in the shadows lurkin around. I heard Ed wasn't to in to computers to say the least, so I'd doubt he would frequent. I can only hope he has his fingers busy with something else. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    I'd love to think they would drop a line in here or there but really, I don't think we would ever know about it. Don't you think it would be crazy for them to come in and declare that they are actually who they say they are? Posting here? They would get beat down by people here. There would be a lot of and fun making. Nobody would believe them anyways. If they made contact with brett and proved to him it was them, that may be convincing, but then the place would be a circus. It would be a media attraction too. It would become wayyyy to busy here. They wouldn't be able to just "hang out" and say whats on their mind about things, because media would be picking up things they say and putting it in print.

    I'd like to think they do lurk, but if they post, I hope they keep their true identity concealed even though I'd really enjoy having the opp to rap with any one of those guys just about regular every day shit. This place would be a fuckin zoo if they were to officially drop in. That wouldn't be fun.

    What do you think would happen if they actually did post here and made the claim that they were members of the band Van Halen?

    Y'all seem to be dancing around the original subject of this thread... Here's what I think...

    Yes... there are people directly associated with Van Halen that visit links. It's possible that even Mike, Ed, or Al may have peeked in here at some time but I doubt they have an ID and have actively posted much, if at all...

    It's hard to say cause there's not much evidence of any sort of VH inner circle beyond Brad & "the attorneys" so it's doubtful that they have a publicist or some organization out keeping a finger on the pulse of the fan base. I'm pretty sure someone lurks here from time to time...

    For all we know... Ed, Al & Mike's kids may play on the internet and every once in a while one of them yells across the house...

    "Hey Dad, come check out this weird stuff those internet geeks are saying...?!!!"

    Dad... "What are those losers saying now?"

    Kid... "Some pretty funny stuff about Uncle Dave and Uncle Sammy..." "Why do they think Uncle Al lives in a cave? Are those people all on drugs or something... dad?"

    Dad... "I don't know what goes on in other people's realities."

    Kid... "Now I know why you guys have Body-Guards!!!!"

    If Ed and Al can't even communicate through their own wesite, I doubt they'd be here. At least Mike and Sam regularly update their fans through their websites. Even Dave kind of communicates with his new videos on his website.

    It's not like there are a million VH forums. there are only about 2 or 3 popular ones.

    I would say that they've been here and posted here and probably STILL post here from time to time(under an alias of course)

    I mean think about it, if you were a famous person and were aware of a popular website in your honor wouldn't you check it out?

    and then you get there and read some threads and SOMETHING has to be said at some point that makes you go "that's it! I'm registering and chiming in"

    I agree that they've probably been sitting around and someone has said "oh man! you guys gotta see what they said about Dave! it's funny as hell!"

    so I say, "yes, they have and do visit this board, and they are probably registered and they do probably stir up shit on here from time to time." [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    I know better, E.J. You spend too much time in the Guitar Room to be a drummer. Then again, Al did start playing the guitar before the drums. Hmmmm....
