    what would Ed, Mike,Alex, and Dave get today ??? Just curious..
    Or Sammy with all the stuff after Dave?
    Peace

    I could be wrong, but I think it's about a dollar for one CD.

    If that's so, does it go to all 6 former members ($6) or just the 4 who made the CD ($4)?
    So you broke down, trying to leave town, I broke down crying on your return. You left me feeling hopeful, I'll never see your face again. You made for a bad lover's liver. You stole all the covers and busted my head. You made me such an asshole, I wish we'd never met. I'm tired of being bored. I'm through with the headaches.

    If the $1 is true, that would most likely be $1 for the whole band. It would also likely be for whoever is on the CD. So if you bought FW and VH1, that's $2 divided by 4 guys--50 cents per bandmate/ex-bandmate. But VH may have it set up so that the some members get more than others (Mikey). This is all speculation though.

    I had read over the years that Eddie and the singer get more than Alex and Mike. Eddie DEFINITELY gets more!! Without him, there is no Van Halen, and they all know it!

    I think the songwriters get more in royalties than the performers. We all know that Ed/Dave and Ed/Sam wrote the majority of all the songs, but I believe that VH lists all songs as written by the four current members equally, for example Anthony/Roth/Van Halen/Van Halen, so my guess would be that they share royalties pretty evenly, at least they did until they re-did their contract. According to Sam that is when Mike got the screw job, on the second contract.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Preferred pronouns: he/him/his

    What pisses me off is that piece of total shit Ray Danniels.

    He wanted to get royalties for albums he never took part of, and even worse for wanting more money than Michael Anthony.

    If i ever see that asshole i'll knock his fucking teeth off !

    Roth has mentioned the "bass player" makes more in royalties than him.

    In the Dave vs. VH lawsuit of a year or two ago, wasn't Dave's contention that the brothers and Mike renegotiated their WB contract without him, and the numbers were somenthing like 30 cents for Dave (original contract) vs significantly more for the others? Forget the specific amounts now.
