    Default Lawyers

    In 1985-86, Sammy said that when he first met Ed, Alex and Mike, they were surrounded by a bunch of lawyers at a stuffy roundtable meeting. After a while, Sam rolled his eyes and said something to the effect of, "This is ridiculous. Lets just jam."

    In 1996, Dave recounted that when he met up with Ed, Alex and Mike to discuss a reunion, he went to a meeting with no agenda, unarmed and alone, but Ed, Alex and Mike made a statement by bringing a whole slew of lawyers in tow.

    In 2000-2001, when Dave tried to reconvene once again with VH, my guess is he decided to play hardball- as payback for getting unceremoniously dumped in '96. Dave came prepared by hiring Darth Vader lawyers to sic on the boys. Dave's hardball approach backfired. His financial demands were too steep and the deal fell through.

    In 2006-2007, could the same thing be happening again? The cut-throat legal wrangling and behind-the-scenes power plays, on both sides, never end. Nobody wants to get screwed and everybody wants a piece of the cash grab.

    a good point that could have fit into any of the other 12 threads going about this same subject......you might want to copy and paste your thoughts into the main thread about this subject before this gets locked down.....
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    I suppose it's possible, but I would think its Eddie's fault. No one elses. Don't ask me how I know that, it's just a hunch based on the last 29 years of bullshit the band has pulled. Every time something like this happens, Eddie stands in front of the camera and points to someone else. As GWB once said:
    "Fool me once, shame on you........foo.......fool me twice..........you can't fool me again....."
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    good point, but i'll ask once again, why doesn't all this happen before the deal is signed, and announced? and before you get band photos taken and then sent out to rolling stone? and before you do an interview with rolling stone?
    SOME VH LINKS CLASSICS


    "Sammy is fat, Dave is bald, Mike is next in line to be the Pope, Eddie is a drunk, Wolfie is fat, Gary is gay, CVH is VH, Mike is VH, Sammy can outsing Dave on a tequilla hangover, Eddie is a meth head, How Many Say I is the worst VH song ever, Up for Breakfast is a close second, Dave was horrible at radio and everybody hates the assless chaps.
    Ok I think that covers everything." Ziggysmalls

    "I sense that some of our newer passengers may be nervous due to the sudden turbulence. Please be seated, this is simply a normal part of the periodic ride.
    I didn't say we'll get to the destination, but until Alex comes out a says what a complete waste of carbon DLR is, we're still climbing, so strap yourselves in.
    Those of you who have been on this ride before, the hottie in the mini will be around shortly with your drinks......." Red

    Anything is possible. This is what we know:

    We don't know shit about what's going on with VH.

    GWB is a terrible mouthpiece.

    Some of us are old enough to remember The Dukes of Hazzard.

    Anything is possible with this band. They could be arguing over the size of the Jack Daniels bottle Dave will use, or something stupid like that.
