    Default Why are you STILL a fan?

    honestly. Why do you still come here? I'm not ragging anyone, I'm just curious as to why everyone is sticking it out. Let's face a simple fact, we as VH fans have been pretty well screwed for the last 12 years or so. So why do some of us still seem to go nuts at every little hint of activity? Is it more out of habit, which it is in my case or do you still really believe in the band at this point.

    again, I'm not bashing anyone who still loves the band, I'm just wondering.....

    Are you kidding me? Well, the reason I love them so much is because there is no other music in the entire world that gives me the wonderful feeling I get when I hear Van Halen. Just listening to Eddie play is the most amazing thing I've ever heard in my life, and when you put Al's drums with Ed's guitar, OMG! It's nothing short of INCREDIBLE! There's just nothing like it! I really believe in them, and I always will!

    Well their really just is not much else to do. I don’t smoke, so cigarette brakes don’t apply. Every so often I have to pull myself out of my work, or I start getting frustrated and mite make a mistake. I enjoy reading what others think about the band and other topics. I guess manly for the entertainment, and if or when a tour happens it mite be leaked here first.

    Yea I am just still a fan, of one of the greatest rock bands in the history of rock. I mite even make a friend or two. lol

    Well I continue to be a fan for a lot of reasons. The primary one is that I have two favorite guitarists. Eddie Van Halen and Randy Rhoads. One does not have the ability to make porn music, go into rehab, wear shitty shoes, kick out lead singers, kick out bass players, or claim to have cured cancer. You can't when you're dead.

    I would give my left nut to be able to bitch about Randy Rhoads in the same manner as we do about Eddie. At least he would be living and creating some music.

    So I guess I am thankful that we still have Eddie to kick around after all these years.

    The secondary reason is that I am a Cleveland sports fan. You think Van Halen fans got it bad? You obviously never rooted for a Cleveland sports team. This shit is easy.

    No one has come along that musicly does it for me like VH. It's like that "Brokeback Mountain" line. I wish I could quit them but I can't.

    Because Van Halen is better with Dave then Sam it sucks without Mikey, Eddie is a kook, Alex looks like Lerch and Wolfie can't sing


    p.s. Gary is gay.

    I just like to reconfirm that daily!!!

    Because Van Halen has always been able to entertain me, either musically, through their soap opera bs and even through their fans.

    There are few songs in this world that can make my arm hair stand up like Drop Dead Legs. When someone else writes a song that can do that to me....this question might have merit.
