    Default The 2007 Fall VH Tour (wink, wink)

    Since the last thread got derailed and then closed I decided to start a new thread with a "encore" of my last post in that thread (have fun folks and please let's stay on topic).

    Quick tirade...

    When Dave QUIT Van Halen, I for one fully embraced Sammy because I thought my favorite band would disappear forever. Sammy helped them move forward (like it or not, for better or worse) after Dave ABANDONED them. There is no disputing this FACT.

    When Sammy either quit or was kicked out (depending on who you believe) Dave was brought back for the TWO "BEST OF" TRACKS (He wasn't promised anything more than that at the time, and for good reason).

    Enter Gary Cherone, the unknowing poor pawn in the history of Van Halen. Was "3" a "Van Halen album"? Yes and no. I like it and most don't. Ed was trying to grow musically with Gary and he did that, for better or worse. Not to mention that Gary, IMO, performed the DLR era material better than Sammy ever did and with greater enthusiasm!

    2004: Sammy returns! This was obviously a huge cash grab for all parties involved. They never discussed their past problems or resolved any of the animosity towards each other. That paired with Ed's drinking and Ed not wanting Mike on the tour in the first place (according to Sammy) was a recipe for disaster. This is where the Michael Anthony issues with Ed really started escalate and fester.

    2007: We are on the verge of having EDWARD VAN HALEN & DAVID LEE ROTH share the same stage together, for what very well could be the last time. That event is Van Halen history alone should be celebrated and embraced!

    MICHAEL ANTHONY's contributions to this band cannot and never will be forgotten. But at this point in the game Mike is firmly in Sammy's corner. He is an "honorary" Wabo, a founding member of "Los Tres Gusanos", one half of "The Other Half" and now the leader of "The Mad Anthony Express".

    None of us really know what the issues are regarding Ed and Mike. We speculate, but none of us were there. So we speculate. Not to mention that according to Venom Thrust, one of the first people Ed called when he got out of rehab was Michael Anthony.

    At this stage of their respective careers can't we all at least agree that all members of this incredible band known as Van Halen have earned the right to play with whomever they want? The "six pack" will forever stand the test of time. The Sammy era music took the band to a whole new level. They all deserve to enjoy being musicians and playing music before they should be concerned with our selfish demands...no? (And maybe Michael is happy with where he is at in his life and is o.k. with not being a part of a reunion with Roth. I mean Dave ain't the easiest guy to deal with right?)

    Having Ed and Dave together again, is on par with, Osbourne & Iommi, Jagger & Richards, Plant & Page, Bon Jovi & Sambora, Tyler & Perry just to name a few outstanding vocalist / guitarist combos. If Michael is indeed out of the picture (which we officially no absolutely nothing at this point) and Wolfgang is in then we should give the kid a chance and his old man and uncle the benefit of the doubt. Maybe he is the spark that lit the fuse for Ed to want to play with Dave again. If he is I'm thankful for it, just like I'm thankful to still be debating about my favorite band all these years later as well as all for the great memories I have regarding Van Halen throughout the past (almost) 30 years.

    The Stones aren't the original Stones and Skynyrd isn't the "classic" Skynyrd line-up. But like those bands (and others) that have continued on, take the current VH situation in the spirit in which it is intended, in the name of good time, classic rock and roll and fun.

    Lighten up folks, it's only rock and roll...Enjoy it because someday it won't be here for us to argue over anymore, these musicians won't be here for us to debate about anymore, but the music will live forever. Peace.

    hmmm
    "People ask me 'Dave, what's it like to be a rock and roll star?" I tell them 'It's simple: in your mind, line up every woman you've ever been with. Got 'em there? well, I wouldn't fuck any of them.'" - DLR

    I was wondering, why DO they stamp a W on M&Ms? Is it for Wonka?

    Not to deflect this thread or anything but, since you're so interested:


    How Do They Put The Ms on the M &Ms

    First, the milk-chocolate centers are formed in a machine and tumbled into a rounded shape. The various flavored M&Ms get a nut or other center with chocolate added around it. Then, the centers are coated in a process known as "panning," where they're rotated in a revolving pan while a coating made of sugar and corn syrup is added.

    Finally, the delicate "m" imprinting happens. According to Mars Inc., maker of M&Ms, a specially designed machine stamps the "m" on each piece of candy. The machine is carefully calibrated so it won't crack the thin candy shells. The company calls the procedure "similar to offset printing."

    The ink used for the "m" is made of food-grade ingredients. You can even get M&Ms custom printed with your own text, although the "m" will appear on the other side.

    In 1940, the original M&Ms didn't have any printing on them. The "m" was introduced a decade later, in honor of creator Forrest Mars Sr.. Originally, the "m" was in black ink, but it switched to white in 1954.

    And no horseradish is spilled in the process...

    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
