    As a frequent visitor and long time Van Halen fan I have been as frustrated as everyone else regarding the current situation of the band. This is my first post so be kind.

    To me the solution to the problem seems so simple that somebody has probably already mentioned it before. I understand that the band would never accept this idea because it is too logical, however here is goes:

    The best way to solve disputes in any business is usually through arbitration. Within the Van Halen fan base you probably have all kinds of successful business people (even some of those lawyers that are being used as the current excuse). I say find 5 of these fans/business people, sit them in a room with Dave, Eddie, Alex and Mike and let them hear both sides of the story including facts and figures. Give them 1 week to work out a fair deal for all parties and let the band start making music.

    I know it's a fantasy world but I bet it would work. Anything is better than what the band is doing now. Keep up the great work in the forums.

    As a project manager, I'd love to sit in on that shit. I'd have no problem keeping minutes, setting milestones and making sure they are met, and just overall making sure its a success. I'm sure esquiretoo (vhlinks prosecuter) would be keen to the idea as well. Who else?

    Welcome to the discussion btw, glad to have ya. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] word up to :buck-nutty:

    I'd only charge 40 an hour, and I'd love the opportunity to get their shit together for them. They would need me to tackle the annoying little critical path details, but they would also need a boss man....I nominate Track 5. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] I feel confident he would keep the best interests of all parties in mind, but also drive the whip. He'd probably get along with em pretty well too, thats important.

    First off, sign me up.

    Second, are Sammy's interests going to be represented at this meeting?

    Third, I'm fighting for Mikey big time. Enough of this shit, it's time for Mikey to get a fair shake. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I am so in [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] Someone has to be able to use some behavior analysis on them and tell them why they're saying what they're saying, and what it is they really mean by it, and the appropriate way to say it [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    what exactly would Sammy's interests be at a round table with ed, mike, al, and Dave? I'm all about having a fair shake for all, but I'm afraid sammy's interests could throw a big wrench in the proceedings. The objectives would be simple. Album and Tour. I'd be leary of throwing too much color into the black and white. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

If Dave is the guy, let's roll. But there's WAY too much evidence from the past 15 years that points to Dave not being compatible with the boys. Therefore, in the interest of Van Halen, all options must be kept open.

    Ok, if we are going with a phase zero, or discovery session first, I'm charging $50 per. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] It would get ridiculous, but I'd be glad to try to hammer it out.

    Just so happens, I'm available too. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] (Hellooooooo Edward....that would be a hint [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img])

    Actually, with some assurances of a box set, I'm sure I could come down on that figure. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    Yep! I'd have the whole thing done in an hour or two, tops. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] Of course my fee would be a tad high, but the rest of the world wouldn't mind footing the bill for it in the long run. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    Btw, welcome vh2002. Out.

    Welcome VH2002! What about me??? I'm a respiratory therapist. I can administer oxygen if the yelling amongst the boys puts them out of breath [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] I know CPR just in case someone's heart stops during the arbitration hearing. I will also supply inhalers for an asthma attack. C'mon, you need medical personnel.

    Are you peeps suggesting that the head of AD security wouldn't have a place in that room?? [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img] For shame! [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

    I'll take the $50 an hour rate and have them out in twenty minutes. Guar-an-fucking-teed. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    Hell, that's only $12.50 apiece - how could they say no??? [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]
