    Default not for nothing but

    i know how mad we all are that mike is out, i really wish eddie would change his mind and ask mike, but we will get wolfgang. you never know he may sound awesome we have to remember who his dad and uncle are, fuck if you can't play with teachers like that then give it up. why don't we see what this will sound like before we judge. just my thought.

    I think everyone will give it a listen and I don't doubt it will be good in some form, but it's the way that Ed and Al decide to present it to the public that is going to matter. The fact is that long suffering VH fans want new music, but not at the expense of the legacy and name that we hold so dear and true.

    Van Halen can't just throw together any said combination of talent anymore, slap their name on it and expect the fans to accept it as the real thing.

    I think many have already decided they don't like it. Don't think there's any way of Ed and Al saving face with them no matter how it's presented.

    The general public won't care, the diehards are gonna be pissed beyong belief.

    Ed's always played what he wants, with who he wants.......I don't think he cares much about how much it sells or whether it's accepted by the fans.
    Warner might be a different story, they care, but I think they have a different bottom line than Edward does...$$$$$.

    I think Ed caved to pressure from Warner to drop Gary...but if III had sold well, Ed would have had more leverage to keep Gary around, which is what I think he really wanted.

    the truth is, however, Ed should give some thought to his fans. There's no justice in any form whatsoever having DLR finally back and Mike out..even if its for a stated,finite period of time.

    For example, if Ed would say, from the get-go, that if they make and perform at the RRHOF, it will be CVH, through and through, and then follow that with a slelect 10-15 city tour as cvh, then hang it up,..i'd be fine.

    Then and only then should they announce a new configuration and they would then probably get the lion's share of the fans going full-bore in their support.

    Of course, one of the qualities that has made EVH so damn good and relevant anytime he write and plays is that he does do whatever the fuck he wants..and you have to respect that to some degree. I do.

    Ed has had fuck-you money since he was pretty much 18 or so...I imagine it's a tough comfort zone to want to break...

    Must be great to have enough money to be at the fuck-you level.

    Question: Who's going to pull of background vocals - especially on the earlier stuff? Is Wolfie going to sing 'Somebody Get Me A Doctor,' or will VH not play SGMAD on a Roth reunion tour?

    Well, of all the reviews I've seen over the years about Roth's solo work while playing VH tunes live, I've never heard anyone complain about the background vocals. So I say do whatever Dave did solo.

    Which ones ? If Ed tried to do things for the fans, he'd be more mentally screwed more than he is now.....take a read around this place. !

    Should he listen to Squal or me? You or Paw? Ford or Smith?
    If he starts listening to the fans.....he's done !
    No matter what, he's apt to piss a bunch of people off anyway, so he might as well do what makes HIM happy.

    I think people put too much meaning into the words "Van Halen".... it has different meaning for everyone but some have it up on some kind of pedestal higher than what the brothers feel it should be, and it's their name !

    Well I think anyone of us would be lying if we said we wouldn't listen; most of us downloaded those garbage songs Eddie did for the porno. It doesn't change the fact it can't be as good without Mike, it seriously can't. Wolfgang cannot replace those background vocals, and he should be in his own band, not to mention high school. Eddie is a seriously disturbed individual for even attempting this.

    Question?

    It is about seeing the origninal line up together. It has nothing to do with questioning Wolfie to me. Just because some of us would rather see Mikey does not mean were down on Wolfie. I dont blame the kid for wanting a shot. I just think he should be in school right now.
