    >However, the III tour concert attendance overshadows the writings of
    the

    >Leondas aunt via Leondas deceased mother Debra whom died of kidney
    failure
    >in 1979. While facing his computer screen, Chris told me that I (as
    in me)
    >wrote Van Halen III. I do not recall "writing" III. However, there
    was a
    >time and place in the late eighties that I recall being in well a
    bubble of
    >time where every note of every song past, present and future was
    performed.
    >This memory remains with me daily. I am sure there are others whom
    >experienced the same reality. I did write of the preceding via the
    Van
    >Halen Mailing List and alt.music.van-halen around the time III was in
    >production. Quickly, fact turned to fiction and I was and still to
    this
    day

    with
    >that bubble, you three individualistic musicians and Gary Cherone did
    the

    there is
    >no dispute over that fact.
    >
    >2. While using the Van Halen Mailing List and alt.music.van-halen, I
    found
    >there were far too many expletives arriving daily into my email box.
    Not

    months
    >after leaving the VHML, I was in my fathers office and about to use
    his
    >computer. I removed some papers and to my astonishment, I found a
    dozen or
    >so names that were identical to names from the VHML and
    alt.music.van-halen.
    >Same persons? I honestly to this day know very little. My father
    left the
    >company he was with and likewise, Gary Cherone left Van Halen too.
    >
    >3. I was writing about red hair in alt.music.van-halen and about a
    now
    >disbanded band named "Stillwater" led by bassist-vocalist Sheri Lynn
    and
    >where the band was to perform (Cousins of West Yarmouth, MA). That
    night,

    >
    >4. Around the same time period, an individual of the same size and

    man
    >had white splotches all over his neck. Alex, with you in a neck brace
    on

    >
    >5. While using alt.music.van-halen and the Van Halen Yahoogroups
    mailing
    >list, I can say I was for the most part, insightful and polite. I
    believe
    >for that reason I was allowed the opportunity to record the Fleet
    Center
    >show during the III tour. During the search just beyond the
    entrance, a
    >guard said I could go in even with my recording device. In plain
    sight my
    >wife and I sat while I hooked up the microphone to the recorder while
    an
    >usher explained to at least two other people that they could not
    record and
    >I was allowed the opportunity. Unfortunately I left the radio on and
    all I
    >had was a blank cassette at the end of the excellent performance.
    >
    >6. During that same summer I wrote either alt.music.van-halen or the
    >yahoogroups Van Halen mailing list a letter about a life long friend
    of
    mine
    >and his rental property located in West Yarmouth, MA. There had been
    word

    one

    >distance with the aromatic smell of marsh drifting into the area
    sometimes.
    >I wrote in the email/post that I enjoy watermelon and asked that
    should we
    >meet that you bring along some watermelon for my efforts. I never
    asked
    >about whom rented the vacation home and never showed up at my friends
    rental
    >property until a little bit after checkout time on a Saturday. In the
    >refrigerator was two nicely sized slices of watermelon.

    >So, I ask you to ask yourselves, what do you make of this
    "phenomenon"
    >called the internet and its simple yet complex relationship with the
    >individual. I have read that some of you frequent the internet so I
    surmise
    >that there will be a definitive reaction to this post. In light of
    that, I
    >must say that I am a singer and I am part of the "germination" process
    of
    >creating original material with some very talented local musicians.
    We
    plan
    >on performing "Mean Street", "Right Now" and "Dreams" in the rehearsal
    >studio. Most likely one of those three will be performed on the stage
    for
    a
    >freely admitted audience, hopefully sometime soon. There are four
    original
    >MP3's and five sets of lyrics located at my site,
    >www.mahlers.com/musicality.htm. Copy write protected of course.
    Please
    >feel free to do as you will with them should you choose to. It would
    be a
    >tremendous impact should you choose to communicate with me.
