    Default Do VH members visit these or other forums?

    Hey Guys

    I havent been here for quite a while, so forgive me if this is asked before.
    I would like to know if any of the VH members visit these or other VH related forums. If your that VH member and reading this..... why don't you sign up and post a little tidbit every now and then.
    Your hardcore fans are on these forums as well as on other VH related forums.
    It would be nice for us hardcore fans to ask a question once a week/month.
    That question would be music related.
    I know a couple of artist who signed up at simular forums saying hello every now and then and share some updates.
    It doesnt take much of your time and you keep the core of your fans happy.
    Maybe its an idea for the new van-halen.com website.
    Anyway i wish ALL VH (ex)members the best

    Peace
    Dirq
    Dutch VH fan with a lot of patience

    ps
    Ill try to get more active overhere, love these forums

    Yeah Dirq's about a day late and a dollar short on that question. I think we may be better off without band interaction. Just new music and a tour please.

    Yeah, they do. That is why most people here never say anything bad about the group. They have this dream that Eddie is going to call them and say "thanks for the kind words, why don't you come out to California and jam with me!"
    Right here I say....

    The sad part is, you're probably right.

    i don't know that they come on here directly, but if someone they know comes across something of interest, it seems to get passed back to them...

    to be honest, i'm surprised that any artist would pay any attention to forums, unless it was a group that hasn't broken big yet and is trying to build the fanbase through a grass-roots approach... all they're going to get is one extreme (no pun intended) or the other half (pun intended): total fanboys or total trolls... those that post sentiments somewhere in the middle don't get as much attention and their comments are lost in the shuffle...
    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...

    I don't think Ed's going to ask me to come to California and jam but after seeing the cover of the new GW magazine, he did say "Thank you". I try to treat others the way I want to be treated regardless if I will ever meet them or not. It's called respect for another human being and follows a lesson I learned a long time ago, "don't say anything you wouldn't say to someone's face". That stops many a hurtful comment and gossip in life.

    What we know:


    Don't monkey with another monkey's monkey.

    That is all.

    The answer is no. Probably. For the most part.

    Incorrect, but thanks for playing. That's all I'll really say about all that.

    The communication between this band and the fans has sucked since about 1999.

    I don't think the fans here need to communicate to these guys anymore than they already have.

    Ed's divoce, cancer, hip, etc. The fans were there, and are still here. It'd be nice if the band would throw them a bone here and there, but they choose not too. Nothing really we can do about it.

    Honestly, I've been told by someone with a pretty good track record that they do visit, and at least one member (?) is here quite often....but it is probably best that they do not acknowledge it, or get involved here, because I don't think it would go very well at all.

    So I guess what I'm saying is, we'll all be better off pretending that they just don't have the time. But we should all try to be a little more decent, because ya just never know who's reading, or posting, for that matter....

    Yes. But you can still be respectful and critical at the same time.

    I think if Ed (or any of the other bandmembers) were posting here, and it could be confirmed, you'd see a bunch of disgruntled hardasses go giddy like school girls. Most of the negative attitudes here are generated due to the fact that VH fans are rabid and the lack of info / music is killing them /us.
