    I was wondering...Not much has been said on this subject. What's Dave's opinion of Mr.Dickhead. I mean, Mr. Daniels?

    I know Ray got dave a load of cash for that Nissan comercial...

    Dave has always given the impression that his work with Van Halen was unfinished. And considering that most people blame Ray for breaking up the Sammy era of VH, Dave is probably a big fan of Ray.

    Yeah, but Ray also brought Dave in (God only knows what he promised him) and then replaced him with Gary...

    Maybe I'm being naive about a situation that involved Ray, but I thought Dave entrance and exit all came down to Dave and Eddie. Granted the impetus for that was the Greatest Hits package which was Rays' idea. I thought Dave came back because he believed he and Ed could get along, not because Ray promised him anything. I'm pretty sure it wasn't hard to get Dave back in 1996. He was at a career low, and he clearly loves and respects everything that VH and he can achieve together musically. Of course, it's hard to know exactly how things were manipulated, because all of the key players seem to have conflicting timelines for what happened.

    Right. I also heard Dave say on the radio ,here in Detroit, that there was alot of outside forces controling the band. "That when a band meeting was called there'd be 15 people in the room. Last time I checked, there was only 4 members in the band."

    The feeling I get from interviews and Dave's book is that him and Danniels did not get along. I thought that it was Dave calling Eddie about how he would be represented on the Best Of album, that eventually got the two together. I don't think Danniels had a thing to do with that in the beginning. We also don't know for a fact that Danniels is out of the picture. Has that ever been officially confirmed?

    DLR made some derogatory comments in his book bout Daniells if I remember rightly - I dont think Ray 'boyght Dave In' so to speak.. DLR contacted Ed re the GH package and they went from there.. no doubt once RD got wind of it, a little mental cash register iin his head went 'ca-ching' though

    How much of a power trip was Ray on? Even though he must have thought he could control Gary more that Dave, he must have been aware that there was a hell of a lot more money to be made with Dave at the helm than Gary. Was Ray instrumental in the departure of Dave in favor of Gary?; the only way that really makes sense is if he (Ray) was on a major power trip.

    From Dave's book it's clear that he didn't have much use for "Pillsbury" Danniels. Ray on the other hand probably would have been fine with a Van HALEN reunion, or at least the money from a Van HALEN reunion, if it weren't for one little problem.....

    If he couldn't control Sammy Hagar, he didn't stand a snowball's chance in Hell of controlling David Lee Roth

    Van HALEN is: Dave, Eddie, Mikey, Alex. Any questions?
