    Default Leave them alone

    You know I"ve said this for the last year now. Van Halen is semi-retired. I'm a huge fan or I wouldnt be on this list, we all are, I would love to continually for the rest of my life love to hear new VH music, but you know Ed, Al, they've had the same damn job for over 30 years now, hell I had to recently get a new job last month after 7 years at my old one! Hey everytime they get a new singer it goes to shit, the fans just want, want, want, the record people want, want, want, Ed DID DO A SOLO PROJECT it's called 3!!! And well you all see the "fans" reaction to it, so I dont blame Ed for saying to hell with it.

    Basically I consider VH as retired and one off projects from now on. Honestly we've gotten a ton of good stuff from the band and they've earned the right to just sit at home and relax, hell that's what my dad does now that he's 65.

    We'll hear VH music someday, when Ed has the energy to suck up yet another singer problem in his eyes. He's been through a lot the last few years, let him be ok? Give VH a break, dont write them, dont open letter them begging for music, just let them enjoy their lives.

    Okay there was already a rant thread going and I see there's a couple of threads that were closed.

    Let's get a grip and move on shall we?

    I for one, don't ever wanna see the plug get pulled on this site.

    I don't agree with that post at all. Entertainment isn't like other jobs, Eddie records stuff everyday, and from what we've all heard Eddie is the only one who doesn't want to tour.

    You know, the basic premiss of this thread has a lot of merit. People should leave the band members alone to live the lives that they choose to. Van Halen has been a dead band for a long time. I'm not sure why people were at all surprised and upset by that interview--it's stuff that we've all known or suspected for a long time. To act as though it's new information is to have turned a blind eye to everything that has (or hasn't) gone on.

    So yeah, leave the guys in the band alone. Letters to Ed, Al, Sam, Mike, or Dave won't change a damn thing.

    Yeah there was really nothing surprising in Mike's interview, but I think some people just didn't want to hear it from a real source.
