    I'm tired of whatever game Van Halen is playing with us. In the past, I've always been supportive of the band, even when I knew they were lying (misleading, leaving out some critical fact, or whatever you wish to call it). This all started with the crap that went on in '96, and now it's come full circle again.

    I've never believed the band owed us anything, or that we could demand that they explain what they are doing. I've waited patiently for over a year, under the pressumption that the band was working with DLR. The rumors were impossible to ignore, and the band knows how strongly most of their fan bass believed the rumors. Both Ed and Mike made comments that encouraged the rumors, while doing nothing to dispell them if they were false.

    Van Halen will lose any respect that I have left for them if they don't issue a statement soon. Like many fans, I've spent hours upon hours talking about the band. Now that Dave has spoken, is it too much for VH to clarify what has been said? If DLR can talk about it, legal issues aren't holding VH back from talking about it.

    All I'm saying is that the band is alienating some very loyal fans by not saying anything. They should have said something yesterday, because being honest doesn't take much time to spin through a publicist.

    MikeL, I agree with a lot of what you say. I guess if we dont want to be a part of it anymore, we can ignore them all together. But hell, I cant leave now, I want to see how it all turns out. LOL!

    It is and has been pretty ridiculous at this point....I am very frustrated by the whole situation too. I think I speak for the whole VH fan base.

    Agreed. My positive outlook has turned into boredom. The silence went from interesting to ridiculous to a big fuck you to the fan base. Now that Dave has spoken, something big will happen or the ship will sink....either way, I almost don't really care [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]
    Here's to your thin red line....MMMMMM I'm stepping over!

    First of all MikeL. That is the best fuck'n post you have ever typed bro. I agree with you 100%! Enough is enough and I too am sick of getting shit on. Today my hat is off to DLR for showing class and a true appreciation for us fans. Oh Eddie. Oh Eddie. KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK. ANYbody home! You can run but you can't hide. Right now Eddie is in a corner with wet paint all around him. I may be pissed at VH like a lot of you, but I find myself laughing out loud.ha ha ha O.K. Now I'm gonna talk about what VH could do. They could release a statement today, but what the fuck they gonna say?"Yes, we worked with DLR, but we still fuck'n hate each other so it's over. Still looking for singer#4 or Sammy?" Yeah fuck'n right! I like this explanation a little better. "Yes it's true. We were working with DLR again and things were going great, but due to Eddie's cancer, things had to be put on hold. EVH is now doing great cancer free and we hope to get back with DLR and make this thing happen. We love you guys." It's up to VH. Are they gonna shit or get off the pot. Or quit smoking the pot.Peace out Eddie.

    The money part is debatable, given information about the $10 million advance.

    Does Eddie care? He's always said he has, but perhaps he didn't mean it.

    Is DLR using us by issuing this statement? You bet he is. But at least what he wants and what most of us want is in alignment. DLR is pressuring the band to do something and I'd sure like them to do that too.

    Ok wait a second...I do care and would be all over the tour if they did it soon and DLR was messin with us with this statement. But, if they haven't worked or spoken to eachother in almost a year, things are fucked and at least we know.....but the least VH could have done is said this 6 months ago. Eddie and Alex always like to say how Van Halen is a business(which sucks cuz I always thought it was about the music [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img] ) and the silence has to be the worst business decision I have ever seen.

    Does Eddie care about us? I don't know.

    But let's not fool ourselves into believing Dave's statement was done because he cares about us. He did it to further his own cause, which is fair enough, but let's not act like Dave is out there fighting on our behalf.

    Does it really matter what his motivations were? Probably none of them care about us as individuals or whether our feelings are hurt [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    The point is that Dave has given us something that we all wanted - information, as well as him appearing to still want a reunion. Of course we have to at least give Eddie the chance to give his side. But so far he hasn't.

    This continued silence from the band IS unnerving. I for one am certainly growing impatient. But what am I gonna do? I've been a fan since 1985 and I'm not about to turn my back on my favorite group....!

    Surely I'm not the only one out there that looks at this thing as a POSITIVE step?

    Okay, maybe 95% of the posters on this board are disappointed as hell, but at least we know something now, right?

    I'm telling you people, be patient, have faith. All will be resolved in the end.

    Stuff No More, thanks for the advice bro."be patient, have faith" First of all I lost my patience and faith along time ago bro. My temper controls my decision making and the only god I worship is the one between my legs. Yeah I pray at least 3 times a day. Back in my prime it was a dozen times a day. I will agree with you bro. that it is good news that DLR said something yesterday. But what he had to say sure as hell sounded like he got slighted again. Unless EVH gives a response soon, I and 95% of everyone else are gonna fuck'n assume that EVH is evil and DLR is the true hero.Peace out Stuff No More.

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>It doesn't matter at all. I just don't want to get caught up in thanking Dave like he's some fan friendly guy trying to help us. Like I said the first time, fair enough on his part, his priority has to be himself, I was just pointing that out.
