    Why isn't Van Halen making a new album right now?

    Why isn't Van Halen making a new album right now? Sammy is back in the band. They have a singer. Eddie is cancer free! So what is their problem now?

    Why is Sammy Hagar touring with the Waboritas this year? Didn't he have enough years to do that? I saw Van Halen with Sammy live last year, I am not interested in seeing Sammy with the Wabos right now.They don't have half the talent that Van Halen does.

    The last full Van Hagar album was in 1995! Ten years ago! It's about time for a new one!!!!!
    Right Now you're reading my post!

    One of life's great mysteries (& scandals) I'm afraid. Time is ticking for these guys too!

    Because Van Halen are cockteases...

    "We have 9 albums worth of material..."

    The question is not, "Does love exist?"
    But when she leaves, where she goes?
    I got the feelin' she don't know either
    Wait like the wind, watch where she blows

    Maybe because Ed is falling-down drunk half the time (or more?). I think a lot of us heard about Sammy saying they could give him a call when Ed gets out of rehab. If only he'd GO to rehab...

    If they put out an album similar to the three new songs, it'd be best if they stayed inactive. If things were really great with the band and they were feeling a creative vibe together, they'd probably be working together. Their past accomplishments give them the right and ability to basically do whatever they feel like doing, and being Van Halen hasn't been a priority for a long, long time.

    I think there are a couple of reasons...the first, and most obvious to me, is the state that Ed is in. As a lifelong fan of Ed, I was alarmed by what i saw (and heard) on last years tour. Second, there does not seem to be the potential to make alot of money with records at this stage...there is no record contract, and when is the last time a "classic rock" artist recorded a new cd, got a decent amount of airplay, and sold a decent amount of records? And third is management...Azoff has managed the Eagles for the past decade if I am not mistaken, and how many new cd's have they released in the past decade? Zero...all they do is tour...that is where the money is.

    Where is Mike playing?

    Sammy isn't playinga "normal" every night tour, only a select few dates. The guy does have a business to promote you know. Plus he comes in after the music has been pretty much arranged and writes lyrics.

    Mike's playing with Sam on his short tour.

    I don't know about ALL of them, but he is on the bill for Chicago's date.

    Before Van Halen can ever record another good song, let alone a whole album, they need a few things they've been lacking for too long.

    1. A quality producer that they trust. Trust being the most important part. Actually even more important than that, this producer should not be named Eddie, Edward, or Ed. Ted is acceptable!

    2. A manager they trust, who cares about music and Van Halen's legacy!

    3. Ears and balls that actually function! These ears need to be attached to band members, producers, engineers, managers, techs, the paper boy. These ears will know when things suck. As important are the balls to stand up and admit when things suck. As in, "Sammy, those lyrics completely fucking suck, they sound like you wrote them during story time at the Neverland Ranch!"

    Hey, have you heard about the new double sided CD's? They are saying this will help to "save" the industry and promote new CD sales and would be perfect for VH. Basically, the first side has the new music and the second side is a DVD of the recording, concert footage or interviews, etc!! How cool would that be? They are already seeing an increase in CD sales that are featuring the DVD on the back.

    Just reading this thread is making me want to scream "What is your problem?" Why oh why can't they just get along to make new music and tour? My god, I don't like everyone I work with but I'm grown up enough to get my job done. VH, GET THE JOB DONE!!!
