    I've been lurking on this site ever since the day I was listening to KLOS 95.5 FM here in Los Angeles and I heard that Gary was out. My first reaction was "Please bring back Dave!"

    The first time I remember hearing the Mighty VH was back in 1978 when I was a freshman in High School. I remember being totally blown away by the sheer power and energy of their music, especially EVH's guitar playing. Beginning with Van Halen II, I've purchased every VH album the day they've come out. I've seen them in concert 15 times, 7 times with Dave and 8 times with Sammy.

    I skipped the VH III tour because frankly I was severly disappointed with the CD. I have the first 2 Extreme CDs and I think they're excellent. Gary was a perfect fit with Nuno in that band. However, Gary didn't fit with Eddie and the boys at all. To me, VH III is full of long and meandering songs that are devoid of the classic riffs, melodies and swagger of Classic VH. (Especially from the Dave Era). Although I feel that the Gary Era of VH was an abysmal failure, I do give the guy credit for bowing out gracefully and taking the high road.

    I enjoyed the Sammy years, but I must admit, when I thought Dave was back for good in '96 I was totally pumped! I've read Dave's book cover to cover, and although EVH is my hero, I think Dave totally got the shaft.

    I am totally convinced that they are back with Dave and we will hear something definitive within 30 days. I can't wait to hear the new CD and see the original VH on stage once again! Hang in there everybody, it will be more than worth the wait.

    Sorry for the long post. I'll keep them shorter in the future.

    Peace.

    I gotta agree with Top Timmy on this one (and that hurts after his very public disagreement with a post I made not 30 minutes ago), I Coulda Hada VH is one of the coolest names I've seen.

    Mr. I Coulda Hada VH:

    As an observer of many Van Halen related discussion boards, may I also comment that your first post is highly meritable in terms of content and first-person expressions of fandom.

    Please continue to post your thoughts exponentially. I commend you on a job well done, and wish you peace and long life.

    Spock out.

    I have heard rumors that he has resurfaced on Earth under the alias "Bradley Starks".

    That information has not been confirmed by Starfleet command. In any event, Mr. Coulda Hada VH, WELCOME ABOARD.

    I know what happens to the alternate Mr. Spock! There's a book about it!

    And right now there's a Trek marathon on Sci-Fi!

    yeah, MIKEL!!!!

    when i found out what happened, i was shocked!
    my bro gave me The Star Trek Encyclopedia for Christmas. you MUST get this thing. it's the most comprehensive Trek book on the planet. every little piss and shit is mentioned, including ships, characters, and items that may have only appeared once or twice for a split second. it covers all the series and all the movies.

    Everread any of the novels, VE? I've read quite a few over the years. If you want a fast, easy read where you already know the characters you can't go wrong with a Star Trek book. Shatner's are actually decent reads. Maybe that's because of his co-authors?

    This is making me want to dig out that "what'cha reading" thread...

    I was waiting for someone to take this name (ICHHAVH) for a while. My feeling was that whoever was clever enough to take it would also be clever enough to make insightful posts.

    Guess I just can't stop being right...
