    Default Props to Janie

    I don't know if anyone has really brought this up and it may be overlooked with all the excitement, but I really gotta give Janie props on the PR job. I wasn't sure about the press conference, some of it seemed a little bit of a setup, but having these rehearsals where people are getting to see and report on them and allowing the pics and videos out and so forth, Janie is really utilizing the Internet and modern communication to get the word out about the show and the performance. Props to her. This has been something that has really erased a lot of my skepticism.

    Personally, I will be going to see Mike and Sam because I'm guaranteed a good show and a good time. But every report I read and video I see tells me that the VH show will be great. Who knows, perhaps I'll make it. If I don't, I hope everyone that does absolutely rocks their hearts out.

    Janie has been a scapegoat around here off and on. And truthfully, no one really knows exactly what she's doing. But one can sense the changes in VH's PR since she was brought on: a quality press conference presentation, regular email updates, the assembly and organization of the current VH lineup. We know very little about her personally, but it would appear she can and will have a positive impact on VH as an active band.

    Props to Janie?
    Uh, go to van-halen.com.
    What about any interviews or anything like that since the PR?
    VH playing well at rehearsals is NOT the PR person's responsibility, hence you can't give her credit for that.
    I do not think she deserves any props at this point. She's paid to do a job.

    Yeh I'm turning around a bit on her too. I was pretty damn sceptical at first but they do seem to be handling this reasonably well, up to this point at least. Be interesting to see what the relaunched website brings

    If she is the one running the VH PR machine, she is doing a 1000% better job than the last group.

    Dude, when I met you in 2001 I didn't think much of you then.. you wore a totally conrtived little get up and were so much of a young bullshit wannabe PR man, you incinuiated that Mike was the reason this band existed, blah blah blah!
    You were and have been such a Mike apologist since then I truly wonder if you have the rationale to decerne a very strong showing of support for the resurgence of a legend or a whine for something the true architects of the band itself recognizes that it is what it now is. Jeezus, Mike is gone because he chose Sammy over Al and Ed, whether you like that fact or not is your thing but quit shitting on every positive post about whats going on "Right Now" I am sure you're girlfriend says the same thing Ari Gold says " Look for the positive, you little midget"
    I don't know what PR firm you work for, but you seriously lack the talent to find the positive in anything.
    Dude, David Lee Roth and Eddie Van Halen are poised to fucking rule a 21st century concert market, deal with it and go buy your Mad Anthony Express tickets and stop being a fucking a fucking total downer.
    Van Halen lives. Mike is cool but this is what we got and from the boots...it sounds pretty fuckin cool. Let people be happy without your personal vendetta

    Props to Janie indeed. Seems to me she is doing a fine job so far. Sometimes people expect a bit much. Before the internet, people didn't hear shit about bands except on the radio or MTV or whatever. Now everyone wants to know everything as it happens, which just isn't possible. Especially if the band doesn't want it that way.

    Janie's done a good job getting this band "out there" again. People are talking about VH again. There's a buzz. Gotta give their management more than just a little credit for that.

    Well, she isn't doing anything that wasn't done for the '04 tour, except maybe the press conference. The '04 tour had full rehearsals with invited guests, and pics were taken. It's when we first saw Ed with his top knot thing and broken boots. So yeah, good for her for doing the exact same thing 3 years later I guess.

    people sneaking in better camera phones isn't necessarily her PR machine at work... but having the band not come down on the resulting videos that get posted is good free PR for them... don't forget that they did shoot down the first bunch of photos being available to the fans (they were taken down soon after they got posted), like they were protecting the big concert mystery... one thing i'll give her/VH credit for is reacting quickly to any negative backlash for bad moves, like the cover art changes... they are trying more, like the e-mail updates, etc.

    nice job, junior!
