    Default The Band's Silence

    Could it be possible, that following the lengthy tour last year, the band took some time off, and then met earlier this year to discuss their future. And at this meeting with lawyers present, and contracts signed they agreed to the following:

    1) no one was up for anything VH related this year nor was Sammy doing anything major- full tour, record, etc. So they decide to go on hiatus for a couple of years. They want to spend time with their families, Ed gets his act together more, etc

    2)2006-Sammy comes out with a new album and full tour. - which was agreed on by all 4 of them. The latter part of the year is spent writing and recording new music- Sammy and Ed sharing ideas by phone, Ed and Al arranging a bit in the studio.

    3) 2007- they release a full length studio album, and then tour behind it.

    In other words, the events of the past year and the near future were all part of their plan, or pre-arranged agreement. This is all certainly possible. As far as all the negativity by Sammy in the media- this was somewhat true, but more importantly, a way to keep the Band's name in the press until the hiatus is over

    the only things for sure are:

    ed getting hammered.

    al eating a shit-load of chinese

    sam plugging his shit

    mikey being cool as fuck.

    other than that, we are waisting our time speculating.

    The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.

    This next part could really confuse things. Let's stay focused. #asis

    No, but those three songs they recorded with Sammy in 2004 would have been right at home on Van Halen III.

    IMO, it must be nice to sit an a room ( with or without attorneys ) and Say " let's take a year or so off and see how we feel then " We put too much money in ALL artists hands...I'm in the wrong gig....

    But happy holidays, fellow linkers...
    Sam, Dave,Gary... who cares. its all about what makes you feel good.

    True.

    But that's because they will need fucking wheelchairs when they decide to get their shit together.

    I was almost wondering who dragged an old thread from 1999 up but then I realized that I'm at a Van Halen message board and it's the same conversation year after year

    3) 2007- they release a full length studio album, and then tour behind it.


    I hope we don't have to wait until 2007 for a new album and tour.

    Come on dude I want to belive what your theory is but.Sam and Mike have both said they have not talked to the brothers since basicly the tour ended!
    So that tells me its your typical 3-5 yr layoff! Besides Eds the boss and he dont need the $$.and he sure as hell really dont care about the fans! If they did care (Al & Ed) they would have atleast put a statement out saying the status of the band or Happy holidays or you guys are the best fans etc but NO....NOTTA- NOTHING!!!!!!!! NOT A WORD! As they always do.
    Peace
