    Why now, DLR? The rumor mill has been hot since Gary left. You recorded 3 songs in July... Why tell us now? No mention of your activities? It seems like the "smokescreen" is in motion. Think about this:

    Dave is/was silent... The last time he confronted the VH brothers, he wrote "an open letter." Fired the touring band.

    Within the web comments, Dave did not promote his stuff. No album sessions, no tour prospects. Dave spoke of others and "quashed" a rumor. Nothing about Dave. Wouldn't one take the opportunity to promote his new gig? I mean, it hit the MTV, VH-1, ABC and Rolling Stone web site.. common this IS a business.

    VH didn't really put up a fight on this one. When Dave wrote the open letter, VH went on MTV, I think, the next day with Kurt Loder.. Remember the "cup" comment?

    I just read a great debate on why Ed wants to do this his way. The argument centered on the 80's nostalgia cheese. Well, there is a lot of money in nostalgia. Van Halen resulted to marketing the "3" tour by playing a set list heavy with DLR era songs. Gary had the range for Sammy stuff. They really seemed to center on DLR stuff. Hell, even Mikey sang a DLR tune.

    The band has no problem with nostagalia. It sells. It sells albums, concert tickets and merchandise. BOV1 is a great example of the nostaglia selling power.

    I think DLR with Vh is as big, maybe bigger than the KISS reunion. They know it, the American people know it and Bob Dole knows it. Make it happen guys.

    I think it will.

    A fan, and happy to be back at the forum,

    One thing I'd point out though, Dave didn't say that he recorded three songs with Eddie, he said they wrote three songs.

    Gip! Good seeing you back, man. [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]

    I'm not as doubtful as I was last week. I still think the guys will pull this out. Dave's statement was obviously a message to the guys to get in touch, to get the ball rolling again.

    VH's response, while truly lame [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] , said they were still working. Hopefully, they'll have some songs ready for Dave to chew on when he ventures back up to 5150 this evening.

    (OK, I made that last line up... but it sounds good to me. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] )

    You know whats another strange thing...i don't think Dave would just sit and wait and not do anything or talk to anyone for almost a year

    if something was not cooking with VH and him he would probably be making music with members of the DLRband or someone else...he said he is ready to go go go...so why would he just be sitting there waiting for VH...if he wants to go on tour he can.
    i don't know maybe im just grasping at straws..but every freaking Behind The Music i have seen these past few months seems to just have some VH comment or picture or symbol or something about the band...i'm really starting to feel nostalgic

    Come on guys...your good...release something

    DLR working with the band? To quote the philosopher:

    "Some only see what they wanna see
    Claiming victory, oh but that's not me
    Gimme truth, gimme somethin' real"
    "Just once I'd like to do the right thing and not get punished for it."

    First of all...why did my post appear twice?
    probably because it was so good

    Secondly calling Sammy Hagar a philospher is like calling Dee Snider an Apostle
