    Update from Melodicrock.com

    MELODIC BRIEFS:
    95.5 KLOS radio in Los Angeles just announced that a Van Halen box set will be released sometime this fall. No official confirmation as yet, but perhaps something will come to light shortly.
    ------------------------------------------

    Has anybody heard about this yet?

    How about a tour to support the box set that contains new music from VH. Would be nice.

    I just saw this myself and came to post.

    I, too, wonder what material could be on it. I suspect that it's just going to be songs I already own.

    It has to be some mistake, for even KISS wouldn't pull something like this:

    In 1996, Van Halen put out a Greatest Hits CD, followed by a studio album, only to be followed by another Greatest Hits CD set.

    And now, a box set is to come out?

    Woof.

    For a band that has stood adamantly against "best of's" only to release 2 in the last 8 years-- if this box set thing is true, and there is no *new* music and/or one new song or stuff we've had all along, I ain't buying it. I'll boycott the thing.
    How open-minded do I have to be before my brains start spilling out?

    oh, they'll put just enough unreleased stuff to tempt you though..but we already have "Zero", etc..so i wouldnt buy just for that either.
    to me, this must mean the end, doesnt it?

    However, this would fit perfectly into a conversation that went something like this:

    WB " well Ed, sure you guys were a great band, but its been 9 yrs since you've done anything, why would a boxed set sell?"

    EVH: "hmm, you're probably right..we would sell to our hardcore, but probably nothing more.."

    WB: "i know you havent spoken w/ sam in yrs, but it might not be a bad idea to start trying to warm things up..you know, if you guys could somehow do a big tour, you would become relevant again and give us the platform to start the cashing-in-on-a-great-career machine rolling again and we would have the numbers we need to get the financial back for said machine..."

    EVH: "yeah, well that SOB was a waste of space and i dont go groveling to noone!"

    WB: "maybe so, maybe not..but you know DLR isnt going to be an easier path..maybe AL could break the ice first? wasnt he friendly with Sam back in the day? and if im not mistaken, the real riff was between you and sam, not al and sam..."

    EVH: "hmm, interesting idea..al was always good at the political side of things..do we have to include that other cat?"

    WB: "other cat?"

    EVH: "the bass player..."

    WB: "Ed, mike is harmless and is loved by the fans..he is a guarantee in this scenario and it'll be what the people want..unless you are going to try and become truly relevant again and form some entity other than VH.If that's the case, you and AL can do whatever you wish and we'd do some market testing to see the financial viability of it and if we'd be interested..."

    EVH: " i'm going to see Al later, I'll breach the Sam subject with him..you never know..it might work out..So what do you think? Major stadiums, worldwide?"

    WB: " Stadiu-hold it,..let's get a perspective here. ( yrs is a long time..not to say yopu couldnt do well, but i think we dont have to go to that extreme..i think just a n. american tour, 120 dates or something like that..no, i think we would be interested in doing arena's and maybe a cgreatest hits package to use as an excuse to get back out there..maybe a few new songs like you did w/ DLR.."

    EVH: "that's some good idea's to think about. i'll talk to Al and be in touch."

    WB: "And if the tour does ok and the BOBW sells decent, we may have the momentum we need for the boxed set..."

    EVH: " hey, im just a musician, ..you guys are the business people..."


    sounds plausible to me...

    Did anybody around here ever pick up this Japanese box set? I've thought about picking it up several times just for the live Mine all Mine track included within. But more importantly, are the albums inside remastered? (5150, OU812, and FUCK).

    And regarding this potential new box set...say it ain't so, Andrew. Geez. All I can say is, it better have a full disk of unreleased goodies.

    It will probably be the same old greatest hits.

    If they were smart they might throw in Believe me, Let's Get Rockin, Big Trouble, Put out the lights, Babe don't leave me alone. Maybe a few LIVE tracks from Oakland 81 & Brazil 83.

    A new song & tour with Dave wouldn't hurt either.

    Hmm....

    Well, a few days ago, a thread here was bumped, that was YEARS old...saying that a box set would be released. Maybe someone read that here, and reported it as news?

    Maybe they are re-mastering Best Of Volume 1 and Best Of Both Worlds.
