    Default Assuming the Reunion Tour Goes Off

    They do a 12 month world tour that is considered successful- release 3 new tunes of the MWM quality that do rather well and then call it quits. They have a press conference and say the band "Van Halen" is no more. Where does the band go down in history? I don't think one can argue they are the greatest rock band ever, although I'm sure some of you will. They are my favourite but in what class will history lump them in? Are they one of the top 10 rock groups ever? top 5?

    One of the top 10 according to who? It depends on who you are talking to. If it is up to people like Rolling Stone Magazine, who I think listed Eddie Van Halen as number 77 or something on their all time greatest guitaists list, then I am sure they would not put VH in the top 10. Who cares anyway? As long as you think they are the best then that is all that should matter to you. All of these lists and polls are a complete waste and mean nothing.

    Way too subjective a topic, some would have them top 5, others might not put them in the top 50. Besides, Van Halen would never be classy enough to officially quit, they'd rather torture their fans until they're dead.

    This is very redundant considering the other open threads. Closing.
