    Check out slawterhouse and go to the Wazzup news area. Dave's latest statement regarding the theater in Pasedena can be found there. Note the line about greed and his former guitarist. Enough said.

    I don't know what to make of that? All I have to say is just enjoy the first six albums or CD's and sit back and relax. It's all there.

    Dave's statement

    Maybe he was talking about Jason Becker?

    At least he's right about needing more Krispy Kremes--much more safer and sanitary than Dunkin' Donuts! [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    Wouldn't surprise me to see some of this in a song of his--what parts, I don't know. Guess it depends on where he winds up.

    he's being so open-ended there with the "former guitarist" comment.

    After some serious consideration, I would have to say that Dave is referring to Becker here. Becker was indeed ravaged by the forces of nature but has maintained his dignity. He brought none of it upon himself. To see a monument fall down after standing for years and weathering many a storm, to see it fall naturally one could say it is dying a dignified death. If the monument is being torn down just so some greed-fly businessman can build yet another superconvenience store, then the death is anything but dignified. You dig?

    I have to agree with cyclonus 7. I don't think that's it's a referral to Ed by the way it's worded.

    I think all the answers are and have been out there in front of everyone. Daves's statement pretty much says it all I think. Why he hasn't said anything up to now is anyone's guess other than free publicity, unless it has just fallen apart very recently if it (reunion) ever took place to begin with.

    Why not say anything? Free publicity, let the pot stir, good way to advertise for remasters don't ya think? Free advertising!

    As for a tour, would backing a tour by any investor or promotor be a wise decision to make with a band who has not played together in what, 15/16 years and can't stand each other? The risk of it falling apart are too great, and this would be big time dollars to be lost as well as made. About as risky as betting the farm on some stocks in the tech industry I would say.

    Until there is an official announcement as to what the status of the band is Van Halen for now is just a CD collection that will forever provide listening pleasure, provided it's at high volumes. Van Halen as a band doesn't exist, they don't exist because they vanished without a word, and, they have no singer as far as any *official* information is concerned. No singer = no band. No news is simply that, no news.null

    When initially reading this I was sure that he was referring to Eddie, but after reading it a few more times I can definitely see how he was referring to Jason Becker. In fact, it is a very nice analogy if that's who he is talking about.

    The other thing I thought about was that I don't think Dave would refer to Eddie as being greedy. If anything Eddie was not greedy in 1996 when he chose to go with Gary instead of Dave, when everyone knew a reunion would have been the biggest financial windfall that the band would have seen. Prideful maybe, but not greedy. Although we don't know what is going on now with the band, I don't think greed on the part of Eddie would be the reason for a break-up. But who knows for sure, I'm just going on what they've given us, which isn't jack squat! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    After reading through the message, I believe that Dave is speaking about how the greed of a former producer or record company ravaged Jason Becker. Dave's no dummy though. I loved how he went out of his way to be vague and not just say Jason Becker. Anybody else starting to think that it'd be easier to find Jimmy Hoffa's body than figure out what's really going on with VH?

    Nah it's not a reference to Ed, Dave would never refer to Ed as greedy, that's just ludicrous. He also has more respect than you think for Ed as a musician, he would not refer to him as "my former guitarist." No worries guys.
