    Van Halen is fading away to nothing

    Look around. Even the number of people visiting this site seems to be getting lower; this is the hardcore that stuck around for six long years of nothing- even they are sick of it all and just drifting away, no one has the appetite for another period of silence. Look at all the topics on the board, most of them are tidbits of maybe/possibly/could happen but probably never will pieces of information or (usually) speculation and everyone seizes on them like a starved bunch of wild animals on a morsel of food. It's not our fault and it's a testament to the dedication of the people that run this site that it's still going. It's just sad that Van Halen is slowly but surely disintegrating into nothing and oblivion. :-(

    Hopefully, they will not fade away into obscurity. But, if they do, life will go on.

    I understand the frustration man, believe me.

    Van Halen should go out the same way they came in. With a thunderous boom that turned everything on it's ear.

    As far as the boards go, I don't really come here so much for my VH update (Lord knows there never really is any). I come here because there's a bunch of really cool mo-fo's here and we all share at least one thing in common. If people start dwindling away from here, that's cool. But for me, when I'm on the internet, this place is home.

    Don't give up hope yet. No news is good news (in theory)

    You know, I can understand people being bummed out by what Sammy said. (I assume it was confirmed.) However, it occurred to me today as I was driving, "how many times did it seem like Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones were never going to work together again?" Seriously, there were numerous times where it appeared the Stones were dead in the water and yet every few years, they would put out something that would be huge.

    Let's be honest, the band has reached a stage in its maturity where it will never be as prolific as it was in the past. Like a great athlete who starts to slow down, the band can't or won't satisfy our insatiable need for the right kind of music. So be it. I'd rather have Van Halen every few years than not at all. In the meantime, I'll listen to my CDs and do my best to stay positive.

    Yeah it totally sucks. Last summer was so much fun talking about the new songs,and the shows. Especially the shows. I couldn't wait to come in to work the next day and read everyone's review of the previous nights show. Seeing the pics and seeing everyone here who had stuck in there and waited having a good time at the show. Maybe some day it will happen again!

    It's a little too early to be so down, buddy! I know they've been quiet, but what's new there? It was just last summer that they were on the road, not 10 years ago.

    Maybe they're done, maybe they're not. As long as you love to listen to VH, the rest is bonus. Many of us will be here no matter what.

    well.....1st off Van Halen will never die. It's literally impossible. They never have to play another show or record another song and will still be the most kick ass band in the world.

    2ndly, they are not done!!! Trust me goddammit!! I knew in 96 Sam would be back and I know in '05 he'll be back. he's got the Van Halen disease just like all of us musicians out there, as hard as it gets, as much as we say we quit, we still keep tryn' to make it. We never quit. In fact I wish I did quit, it would be easier. Anyways, don't count Van Halen out yet...

    ...wtf, strike this thread to the trash. Regardless of what the members of VH plan to do...retire, carry on or even die....they'll never fade away to nothing. You a real VH fan?

    ...sorry, i just hate this $hit.

    My sentiments exactly, couldn't have put it better.
    I tend to spend a bit more time here than doing actual work sometimes but heck, it's VH. What else can I say??? Sometimes you just need that fix of VH to get thru the day. This is the best place around to get that other than a seriously cranked up session with the six-pack and headphones (for fear of blowing people's hearing).
    But don't worry man, some of us are just as frustrated but what can you do? It is VH after all and an added "bonus" to us diehards.

    I still visit here often enough. You have a good chance of seeing me either in the Arcade or Map57's spank bank thread a.k.a. "Ah Yeah, Beautiful Girls" over in Non...

    Oh yeah, I'm frustrated as hell too, but I think it's a little too early to throw the towel in for me.
