    Well...wheres this big double issue thats supposed to be here!? I've been a subscriber to The Inside Mag since the begining and even wore my Inside T shirt ( i bought!) to some shows (VH and non VH) to support the mag....
    I realize there hasn't been any new news, but the old stuff is what I get it for anyway!!
    At least a flyer letting the subscribers know theyre still alive would be nice!
    Its bad enough the band can't throw the loyal (and dwindling) fanbase a bone!
    Inside....whats up?

    Hey Chipper. Here's the reply I received from the mag when I sent that a rather dissatisfied e-mail the other day.

    Dear subscriber,
    We are still working on the double issue, issue #17/18, covering the 1979 World Tour. I know that it has been a LONG time since the last issue and I apologize for the delay. We are hoping to have the issue out in March. Please bear with us.

    If, however, you do not wish to wait for the next issue and would like to cancel your subscription, I would be happy to cancel your subscription and give you credit for Official Van Halen merchandise equal to the amount of money that you paid for unmailed issues of The Inside. We have over 120 items available, so hopefully you will find some things you would like.

    Once again, I'm sorry for the long delay.

    Okay, repeat after me, "WHAT THE FUCK!!!!!!"

    On October 9th I get an email (because I'm on the update list) from the Inside saying;

    The next issue of ''The Inside'' Van Halen magazine will be a double issue,
    #17/18, combined. The entire issue will focus on the 1979 and 1980 Van
    Halen World Tours. It is undoubtedly one of our best issues! The double
    issue will be mailed to all subscribers in late December and will arrive in
    early January.
    Then, on January 7th, Links member Mike Damone posts an email he received from the Inside saying;

    IN FEB. A DOUBLE ISSUE COMES OUT.
    Now, Rikk receives an email that states;

    WHAT THE FUCK!!!!!!!!!!

    January becomes February becomes March. Gotta say, though I'm FAR from surprised, I'm not liking the pattern here!! And it's funny how I'm on the Inside's email list, yet I have to come to the Links to find out about the date getting pushed back again and again.

    I know Glenn. I don't really believe I'll be getting an issue in March. I'd better, though.

    Isn't is annoying that we're not hearing from the band, and we can't even get our lousy fan magazines either?

    Glenn the reason is pretty simple: The Inside is a joke. It's been one for quite some time now I'm afraid....

    I am a subscriber also; have been since Issue #1. Re-upped for a two year subscription but have only received one issue (oh so long ago) since then. I am an MBA graduate, but it doesn't take an MBA to figure out that if they are offering merchandise (inventory on hand), instead of a cash refund to dis-satisfied customers, then they must be in a serious cash flow fix. I would say write off your losses and don't count on an issue anytime soon. If you are so inclined, I would suggest taking any legal means you deem necessary/worthy to teach these guys that it is not nice to take good people's money.

    I agree, what a joke The Inside has become. I'm lucky enough to have a friend who subscribed since the beginning so I never got a subscription myself. I would just read his. Hopefully, we will see something soon but I wouldn't bet on anything related to this band.

    They could mean March of 2003, or something. Pretty sad.

    I got that email too, exactly, word-for-word over the weekend. I never got a chance to post that Yesterday.

    I am glad I bailed when Cherone joined the band. I will buy and re-subscribe if they ever get their shit togethor.
