    Default 86 - 93. Were VH too "close" and could it of been the cause of the split.

    We all know VH is in a mess.......period!!!! But can we go back to the 86 to 93 period when everything was "perfect". These are my fave VH years, not just for the music, for the shows or the look, it was cause they were SMILING!!! Real Happy days. The interviews they did during these years were the best ever. They were laughin, funny and enjoyed each others company and had little animosity and no ego.
    There was a interview here in Australia with Bert Newton in 1998 when Sammy was touring here solo. Sammy said those years were "perfect".
    But my question is, was "Perfect" a bit too much. I know they were happy days, but did they see too much of each other, and hang out too much. I remember Ed and Sam lived near each other at one point and would "always" hang out. I say this on the fact of me and my girlfriend, we were "perfect" too for 12 months then after a while it got stale. We split on dec. 16th, just before xmas but are now starting to go out together again.

    We would see each other "too much" too and had little space for ourselves, and thats what was going to spoilt it for us in the end. We just got too cozy and comfy.
    We split on "bitter" terms just like VH before xmas. I bought her a new dress just for xmas, and have yet to see her in it. I had'nt seen her for 3 months until 2 times in the last cuppla weeks.
    On sunday night we are going out, she is wearing the new dress I bought her, and it give me goosebumps seeing her in it. I love her dearly, and she knows it. I hope I'm not boring you, but VH and Sammy/Mike should be borrowing a leaf out of this and should be doing the same route as me and my girlfriend is.

    To make our friendship and relationship work, we choose "not to talk about why we split or how we must get it back". We are just starting again.

    I hope you all agree with what I've said. You may not of been in my position, but I just wish those VH days would come back, but in a different way. They were too close.....too close, and I think that was the start of everything, and when Ed Leffler died......the safety net had gone.

    I actually posted a sensible subject, and was after some sensible feedback. I think its a shame how this band has come a joke, and some fans joke about it. I think its very bloody sad. I was giving my thoughts on a subject that I have'nt yet seen discussed here. If my girlfriend and I can get back after bitter circumstances, they can. Even if the guitarist is having probs.

    what is this, the rikki lake show? next, on oprah...

    hey, dude, it's great you're getting back with your girl and all, but without putting gross images in my head, a hetero buddy relationship is absolutely NOTHING like being in a romantic relationship... two very, very different dynamics at work... with totally different issues...
    Runaround... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around...

    No offense, dude, but using an analogy about your reconciliation with your gal isn't quite a sensible subject in terms of comparing it to Van Halen.

    If you and your girlfriend are millionaire rock stars bogged down with alcoholism, trust issues, co-dependency, paranoia, and megalomaniacal bouts of mania and depression...okay, then maybe it warranted semi-sensible feedback.

    If you can't joke a take about this band yet, you're in for a world of dissapointment in these here halls.

    well i think Dr. Phill, would say that in this type of relationship where two sides cant get along, best thing for them to do is just each side to call each other liers and crooks and blame everything on the first and third singer. then when everything is out in the open then and only then come together and kiss and make up only to do it all over again. then after a while they will forget why they broke up in the first place and getalong just fine for 6 months at a time. just long enough to get mad at each other.
    Kickin' back, ain't kickin' you
