    The Great Silence is upon us again!

    So the tour is over and we enter the VH zone, a place in time where days pass like hours and even minutes, information is scant and often conflicting, rumours abound and, most worrying of all, silence descends over 5150.

    Now we have lived through the first Great Silence of 2000 to 2004, however it was a trialling period for all fans of the mighty Van Halen. Though we could take some solace in the fact that the band and Eddie in particular needed to re-think after Van Halen 3. This time worries me more. We are coming off the back of a successful tour and the successful release of another greatest hits package. The fans have shown they are still eager to hear more so why put us through this again????

    One thing I often think of is the fans that were lost during the first Great Silence. We dont hear their voices anymore and some may say that for giving up on Van Halen that they were not real fans....I disagree. The treatment of Van Halen fans has been poor, at times down right rude, and everybody has their breaking point. Does Eddie think people will tolerate another one, two, three or four years of absolute silence???

    Now I am not a traitor to Van Halen and I have defended them against music fascists mockeries for years but I do have my limits and I want it known that I wont tolerate what happened after Gary left all over again.

    If the band is over then just tell us. If Sammy is back just tell us. If the band intends to carry on working but is undecided on who is fronting them....just tell us!

    In some ways it reminds me (and in NO WAY is it ANYWHERE NEAR) of the plight of families in wars past when soldiers used to go Missing In Action (a rare occurance these days) Van Halen is like a soldier missing in action and the family (us, the loyal, loving fans) awaits information....days pass, then months and then years and eventually the family just wants the comfirmation of what we all know has happened so we can mourn the loss and move on in life.

    Just tell us what is happening and dont put us through it all again, please Eddie.

    My god....are we starting this again? The tour just ended. I say give them all the time in the world to regroup, work on other things (like getting sober) and come back refreshed and ready to kick our asses.

    To be honest I think eddie and alex should do a solo record of just intrumental music or music with a bunch of guest on it and I mean a bunch of different people old and new. I think eddie should get together with some cool vocalists and cool keyboard and piano players and see what happens. This is just until sammy gets his own thing done. I have also thought that they need to get out of that studio and try recording in a different setting. you know how Led Zep used to do it. Rent a fucking castle and then all of a sudden you have the biggest drum sound anyone has ever heard! cool reverbs, just an overall different vibe!

    good lord it has been 3 freaking months since they played their last concert! 90 dates lasted June-November and we have bitchers about silence, jesus let them rest up a bit, I mean it has to be grueling after 5 years of nothing to just hit the road again and go at it full force... Just relax!

    When you start paying Eddie's rent, then you'll be informed on what's going on. Until then play BOBW over and over and over..

    The VH camp silence means one of two things:

    A.) They have no fucking clue as to what to do next and are trying to avoid the ridiculous permanence of their past statements (I.E. [to paraphrase] "if things don't workout with Gary Cherone, I'm gonna' take up the accordian"--Eddie VH)

    B.) They are buliding "annnnn.....ticiPATION!" for an upcoming announcement.

    Yea, but to some degree, Yo!Edward is right.

    How about a simple message on the web site -

    "Hey all you Van Halen freaks...thanks for supporting us this past summer. We recognize that we had to shake off some cob webs before we really started rolling, but being on the road did us all some good. We are taking a break right now...hopefully it won't be too long. Thanks again!"
