    The 1979 VH 30-Year Master Plan: How to make $$ from your fans ...twice!

    Marketing 101:
    How to make $$ from your fans ...twice!

    First... give them ALMOST everything they wished for...

    After everyone has bought it, update that 'product'

    Give them what they wanted in the first place
    ...but hold something else back.

    ....

    In the big picture of this tour (especially the MA issue)... VH has played this TOO well. I wouldn't be surprised if this was planned out way back when the VH band was rising to fame.

    This is thier version of Elvis/Jim Morrison/Eddie and the Cruisers ....return from the dead MASTER PLAN...

    Can't you imagine Dave proposing a grand master plan at a band meeting back in say late '79 or '80! (He was always a schemer... from the parachuting into a gig... to the US FEST pre-party video...to the feigned radio career which served well to bring back a lot of exposure to the band.)

    I believe IF they NOW gave us Van Halen with MA *and* Roth... I think that would be the end of any possible future climax to the whole story...

    Having MA go to Sammy's side (to hold out one missing piece of the puzzle while still letting ED and DLR play together) is sheer marketing brilliance!

    It keeps us wanting more.

    Have the DLR and ED "reunion... but save the final grand finaly for the big money maker:

    The FULL VH "Reunion" Tour ..Classic VH ...with Mike and Sammy.

    ...the only sad part is that the only way we'll get to see CVH again (complete with MA) is probably going to be with a half set of Sammy songs... not that that's a bad thing...

    Its kind of getting your cake... eating it too ... and then having your appetizer.


    Pure speculations... but that the BIG PICTURE as I see it ...


    What do you think? Do you believe this was all some master scheme?

    I dunno...compared with what actually passes as "clarity of thought" around here lately, in an effortless, carefree and yes, ultimately mindless way, it tends to be somewhat refreshing.

    Stupifying, yes. Then again, at this point in the evening, what else is on..."Will And Grace" reruns?

    They are no different from any other classic band reforming...Get as much cash out of it as you can...period. Don't trash VH cause they are doing what countless, less talented bands have done for years!!

    A Van Halen conspiracy theory. This has been one big plan all along. And we are all the suckers who subscribed to it unknowingly the whole time.

    Get Mulder and Scully on it; there's more than meets the eye in the mysterious world of X-Van X-Halen.

    I need to start smoking pot again.
