    According to eonline Dave is suing VH for damages in excess of $200,000, accusing them of failing to pay him royalties.

    So much for a reunion, bring on Hagar, I'm done with DLR.

    If true, of course the minute chance of Dave having a future with VH is gone. With that said, this is just an opinion now folks so don't go postal, I really don't want to see Sammy back either. I'd rather see someone new (I can't believe I'm saying this!). It's not rooted in some absurd hatred for Hagar "ruining" Van Halen, I just didn't like the music from OU812 on. And it seemed to get worse with every album. Maybe Eddie is just spent and needs to retire, I don't know. But this bullshit of not knowing is starting to piss me off! Excuse me; Anyway, to me there was absolutely no excitement to the new stuff with Sammy. Just the same old tired approach to songs and guitar solos. If Dave's out, I'd like to see someone who can give Eddie a kick in the ass fill the role of lead singer. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    What a sad, sad state of affairs. Wonder if this is related at all to the vhstore debacle. Or maybe from BOV1?

    Why would he be suing the band, wouldn't WB be the ones to pay him? I'm not sure how it works, maybe someone with some knowledge of it can say? But I just don't see VH getting money and cutting Sammy, Gary, and Dave checks every week.

    If true, the hopes of a reunion are done. [img]graemlins/irked.gif[/img] [img]graemlins/cry.gif[/img]

    Maybe Dave needs money for the lawsuit against him, but either way if he is really suing Van Halen then I'd say if there was ever a chance of him coming back its probably been flushed down the toilet.

    Why does chasing money that could be owed to him make him a sad case.

    If it is owed to him he has all rights to try
    to get the money!

    If this is indeed true, amid all the past talk of Dave saying "It's inevitable" (like Sam is doing now), then if there was anything left on that bridge of hope, I think Dave just burned it.

    Funny how this lawsuit from Dave comes at a time when Bart just brought one against Dave. I guess he has to find a way to pay Bart somehow.
    "Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that."

    "This is a lttle prayer dedicated to the separation of church and state. I guess if they are going to force those kids to pray in schools they might as well have a nice prayer like this: Our Father who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation indivisible as in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail. Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."

    Pay Bart? No, Vince, I'm sure Dave's lawyers wouldn't represent him against Bart unless they knew there was some remote chance of being paid, so why not sue Van Halen? [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Dave is willing to forgo any reasonable chance of a reunion for a relatively insignificant $200k. To me, this obviously means there was little to no chance of a reunion happening prior to Dave bringing suit. I wonder what went on recently to bring him to that realization?

    Dave always said the reunion was inevitable--who'd of thought it'd go down in a courtroom?

    welp, not that it matters, but i am now 100% convinced dave will never be back in van halen. guess i'll have to keep seeing the punks to hear the dave material.

    now if sam comes back i hope we don't hear the same old ballads and setlist shit. they need to write some fucking rocking tunes, they aren't bon jovi.

    so it's sammy, or #-4, what are the odds? anyone?

    The dream is over............. That's fine. We're not missing anything we haven't missed for 20 years. Just let Mike sing. W/o Dave, for me, they were a trio anyway. No offense to Sam OR his fans.........

    finally, people here might realise that dave is not apart of van halen's future. everything, and i mean everything, points to this fact and has been for the last year. people, let it go and move on with the 4th singer. if you don't like it, don't buy it. my personal opinion is van halen can not move forward with either of these clowns. instead of living in the past and bitchin about what era is better, look forward to hearing one of the greastest rhythm sections in the world crank it out with whoever at the helm.
