    Default First post, so cut me some slack...

    Hi people. I have been reading this site for a few months now, and I have to tell you. I am amazed @ the loyalty and hatred that goes on here.
    It's astonishing...
    And yes, I started a new thread, so sue me. You guys go ape shit over this, and I'm not sure why.? I saw no recent thread to tag this onto, sorry...@ any rate...


    I'm a long time VH fan since the first time I heard VH1 blasting out of a jambox on my street in 1979...
    I'm 38 and have seen them in 84, the first two Sammy tours and in 04 as well.

    I'm more of a DLR guy, but whatever...

    anyway, I think these rehearsal vids are pretty damn good, and I hope they come somewhere in state of Texas, so I can see them.

    I used to..like many, be under the impression the Ed could do no wrong and everything was all daves fault.. Now, I see different, but I still don't care. It's all about the music for me. I think what happened with Mike is a real shame, but shit happens and they all need to move on....like stated here before.. It's not 1984 anymore...

    I think Wolf will do great once he get the first few shows under his belt...( no jokes please)...

    Oh and a random thought here... that fucking photoshop thread, may be the funniest thing going on the www right now... I have to hand it to you guys.. some serious sick twisted funny humour going on there. thank you...

    This whole post is off the cuff just thinking out loud stuff, so please don't read it if I'm boring you...

    daves voice.... truth is.. I heard some carnival/parking lot gigs he did on youtube from a few years back and I was mortified... I am very surprised he sounds as good as he does. Very happy too. Hopefully it will stay strong.

    RRHOF... joke... Ed Al and Dave should have been there. hehab or not....( shame)

    I think if they pull this off and do a studio LP that it is vital for Wolf to be included. He is the only member in touch with what's hip IMO...
    They can't go in an make another outdated dud.. It will be a death sentance internally and to the world...

    When you sit in a studio for 6 years or play vegas, or sit on yer ass you loose touch. Wolf is 16 and hopefully can bring in a fresh sound and approach to recording as well as writing. I hope so for their sake.


    Sammy... 80 Mil..? Lucky bastard... thats all I have to say..

    When I saw Ed and Co. in 04..My wife and I had great seats on his side about 18 rows back. I had no idea
    what was going on during the tour but after reading here, now I see.. he looked ill and visibly buzzed. His solo was weak and I was a bit bummed about the whole show.
    As I see most of you were.

    I saw a thread here about VH reading this site...
    do you actually think they do???
    I doubt it, but who knows. Hopefully they have a good sense of humor... they'll need it... you guys can be vicious...

    that's it.. I'm done...
    thanks for letting me bend your ears...

    this is a great site...
    Brett??? runs this? Is that right? whoever you are, you are doing a great job...

    Hey, welcome to the Links man!

    You sure didn't waste anytime hitting on all the subjects!! I'll weigh in before this sucker gets locked:

    You're right about the passion. Unfortunately that passion goes both ways. As for VH reading this site, we assume so based on response from the backlash about Mikey being taken off the covers of the albums on the site and a few other things. Also one of our members got reamed by Eddie because of something they posted. Oh well, we will judge harshly afterall.

    You did make one mistake though, you picked a side. If you're "partial" to Dave, that means you hate Sam around these parts (at least that's what some people think).
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Hey, how are you doing?

    Honestly I don't find the loyalty or hatred all that amazing or astonishing, we're like that because we all share a burning passion for VH, whether it's the music, the era, Eddie, Alex, Mike, Dave, Sammy, or Gary (yes, Gary). Each person here has a passion for some part of VH, if not all of it.

    Well spend a few years, not few months, on here - you'll see it as something very obvious.


    From after the end of 'reunion' tour until about this time last year this site was more of an off-topic board, so please be welcome to check those forums too. This thread will probably be moved there anyway.

    He joined 8/20/07, fulfilling the "two week wait" part of the deal in order to post.
