    the great music machine of van halen is over
    the years have gone buy. and have given the fans lots of music and memories and reason to celebrate.
    van halen has given us 3 diffrent styles of van halen and often left us wondering whos on first and whos driveing and are they on drugs are drunk. are just crazy.

    im a big fan of van halen i dont know a thing about whats up with my band.
    ive backed them, ive gotten on this computer day after day for months since november of 1999 and hoped that news would come.
    no news has came speculation of all of the band members health has been tossed around and nothing concrete.
    no news from van halen, eddie van halen himself. leaveing fans like us left out.

    i do feel lost. i had such big dreams of what it was gonna be like going to see the greatest band in the world. show up with david lee roth and give a lot of us fans what we want.
    new music and a tour we wouldnt forget about.

    but know time has passed by and all is so bleak.
    sure id jump up in pure fuckin joy to hear news.
    but i have a awful feeling. all the good times have gone.
    i dont know if its cause eddie is in bad health. i hope to god he is healthy.
    i dont know if its cause van halen or eddie feels like shit cause he failed with van halen 3 and just doesnt feel like carrying on with it anymore and isnt ready to let people know about it.
    eddies true thoughts on david lee and sammy who knows really.
    what is eddie thinking i often wonder.

    is eddie really sick of them both or is it he wants to deal there faith. of there future.

    i dont know, but im definetly takeing a break from here.
    cause van halen has nothing for me.
    showing nothing and no reason for me to stick around. until i hear something that either startles me or has me jumping up and down.

    p.s van halen i loves you all.
    i hope you guys are all healthy and do come out again atleast once more before. its to late.

    van halen the greatest band in my mind.
    david. r , a true fan for ever!!!!!

    I can certainly respect and understand someone who says they're taking a break from all of this. It's not like it's real life, it's just entertainment.

    True artists don't create their art on a schedule.

    man, some people need to relax and put things into perspective. van halen are a rock band..albeit the best rock band inhabiting the blue planet....but they are just four people who play great music together and thats it. they pretend to be nothing else and owe nothing to noone, let alone people who frequent a web site on a daily basics demanding answers. just be thankful that you wake up in the morning, have the ability to smell things around you and see all the colours of the world. there are alot of people in this world that live under the rule of a gun, or there is not enough food to feed them and their family. these people would love the chance to sit here and complain about how long it is taking a rock band to release an album. reality check people........it will happen when it happens, just enjoy what music we already have and appreciate it...the rest will happen when it happens.

    Kinda makes ya think. Dave said in his book not to sit around with your dick in one hand, the other hand trying to retune the clock, not to screw around with time, etc. But if this reunion stuff is all true, then that's exactly what he's been doing. And we've been hanging around on a keyboard for over a year waiting for it.

    Let's put some things in perspective:

    VH3 - Present = 2 years
    ---------------------------
    5150 - OU812 = 2 years
    OU812 - For UCK = 3 years
    For UCK - Balance = 4 years
    BoV1 - VH3 = 2 years

    In none of the above three times was the internet a viable source, which means you had to wait to hear something from print media or tv/radio programs. The fourth time was the only time the internet really played into news on the band.

    I'd say 2 years with the ability to get rumor updates is better than 4 with no word.

    Stuff, mi amigo, there's a few HUGE difference, between those years, and now.

    a) Between each of those albums, VH toured. Between F.U.C.K and Balance, they toured twice!

    b) There was somethings going on between albums, such as between 5150 and OU812, Sammy and Ed collaborated on "I Never Said Goodbye"

    c) Van Halen was always in the news. Even before the Internet, someone would be at this event or the other. Interviews were a plenty. Every rock magazine had an article or pictures. One of the members or a pair of the members were always doing interviews. One or more were calling radio stations giving updates on the new cd or their plans for the future...
    I recall hearing about R.H.R.N.:LIVE, WELL ahead before it was released. They also said they would tour to celebrate their 15 years in the studio. They had the near-riot, when they did the "Whiskey A Go Go" appearence...

    For me, that is why this is so frustrating. Part of Van Halen's appeal, was their appeciation for their fans. They always kept us involved and up-to-date.

    Now, for well over a year, we have heard absolute NOTHING! That is so hard to swallow.

    The last thing from Van Halen was they cancelled their last shows. A few trinkets of information about the upcoming cd W/Gary, the Gary is no longer w/VH, and that's it!

    No rumor confirmed, no interviews, no call ins, no nothing!

    I know, it's only rock and roll...but....

    Well, true, I'll give you that, MARD. Of course, not all of us made it to every (or any) tour in those years, and then there are those people who have waited 15 years already, what's a few months more?

    But seriously, I think the problem now is we're all online and plugged into the situation. Hell, if we all had lives to live instead of hanging on every word the band (doesn't) utter, maybe we'd all be a bit more adjusted.

    Nah

    On the contrary, no my friend, the journey has just began. Eddie's been through A LOT in the last year. Give him a break. He needs it. He's smoked and drank since he was 10. And now it's all over. Not an easy step. And for those of you bugging about it. His other hip is fine for the time being.
