    Default why no press/interviews?

    It's pretty eerie that "the tour of the century" isn't generating multiple interviews in various cities, not to mention interviews in Rolling Stone, Spin, etc. Since this is "a new band" of "brothers" you wouldn't think there would be any problem with a few interviews that would help sell out those nosebleed seats. What gives? I'm sure the answer is, Dave's walking on eggshells around Ed. That's too bad, the behind the scenes tour tales would have made some hellafied reading.

    The band is not granting any interviews. Press is shuffled in, can watch the show but the band is sequestered heavier than a rag-head at Gitmo!!

    It's probably because Eddie is still a little wack-o in the head-o. Besides that, they will inevitably get asked about Sam and Mike (mostly Mike), and these uncomfortable questions have uncomfortable answers. It's best for them not to continue to feed BS to everyone and just let the music do the talking.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Caution: Here comes some rambling thoughts!

    There's always hope with this bunch, but this is just one more thing that to me at least, doesn't look good for anything beyond this tour. No new songs, no interviews, and in true VH-style: No website. The current website is merely pushing tour dates. No more pretense of a pending "full" site anymore.

    I wonder what is really happening behind the scenes. Is there any non-show interaction between these "brothers"?

    I'd like to think this fall tour is just to shake the dust off, generate a little buzz and enthusiasm, crank out the classic tunes, and then hit the studio after the first of the year. As good as Dave has been sounding at these shows, he'd sound great on an album!

    Then, hit the road for a new major tour starting late summer to push their new album. All the regular PR stuff comes after that. Seems like maybe doing interviews, late-night shows, etc. is more to drive sales for an album anyway.

    They've definitely left major areas of the country untouched, not to mention the world, with this current tour. I wonder if there will be a second leg.

    Sorry if this sounds rambling. I have a cold and I'm all medicated... *ah-choo*

    Too many difficult questions that they don't want to address.

    They are not doing interviews becausse of all the bullshit they have done and they dont even want to open up that can of worms.

    They dont need to do interviews anymore.

    Everybody knows everything about them already.

    Do u really need to have ed lie to you about his "new" brother?

    With sold out venues nationwide and nothing but great press, they have nothing to gain and everything to lose if they open their mouths at this point.

    "Sure" doesn't necessarily imply "know." I'm hoping to read some interviews so I can reasonably doubt that it's the same ol' song and dance behind the scenes.

    no kidding, go back and read the interview the band did in Guitar World before the 2004 tour. What a load a of bs Eddie spewed. Mike and Sam were his brothers and they were closer and tighter than ever blah blah blah...

    just sounds like hypocritical bs given what we know now went down.

    Better they just keep their heads down and play.

    I am just amazed Dave hasn't said something that pisses Eddie off and killed the whole thing, no matter how inane the comment is.

    Of course in 1996 Dave was still trying to be the Dave of 1986. Now he at least seems to have come to grips with the fact he ain't THAT Dave anymore.

    You have to admit, though, that's it's really really weird to have all the guitar magazines keep completely mum about the tour. I guess they've finally had enough of the runaround VH has given them the last few years.

    the tickets are already selling, and they're not pushing new music... to put it into perspective, exactly how many interviews have the police and genesis given this year? how many do the stones, eagles and the who do when they tour? it's unnecessary for this group if the core audience is there and knows about the shows already...
    Runaround... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around...
