    Pretty damn good if you ask me. # 9 in gross receipts for 2007 -- when the 2007 tour didn't even start until September 27th. 3 months and less than 40 dates and they still hit # 9.

    A very successful tour, at least money-wise.

    Hey, that's fucking wonderful! I am so pleased for them to be fortunate enough to literally rake in the cash!

    Jeeesus, that's swell! In the meantime, I have this tiny issue with the government regarding taxes, along with trying to ...you know, survive from week to week...

    Exactly why am I supposed to be genuinely over-joyed that the Van Halen Family retirement fund is so far better advanced than my own, when in fact I happened to finance both?

    and they were being honest. You would love playing too if you could gross 63.8 million in 3 months.

    63.8 in 3 months....wow...using that figure...

    Another 3 = 127.6
    Another 3 = 191.4
    After one year = 255.2

    They could break the Rolling Stones record, could they not, if they kept touring for 2 years solid?

    Yep, it would seem, even as much as we bitch about it here, (even with a 16 year old on bass) the fellas in this band are quaite a draw, not just to us, but even the common folk...so to speak.

    Just Imagine what a new album could bring! Maybe the revival of rock?

    Shows how much Dave really mattered I guess...the bros. marketing ploy actually worked out...

    I'm sure if Zeppelin tours they will do even better because Bonzo is dead and they have his son replacing him

    Zeppelin will do better because they are Zeppelin. I'm not exactly what you mean by *marketing ploy*...I'm certain it is some sort of sarcasm, but directed at who? Me? And the whole Bonzo is dead thing....WTF?? What does that have to do with anything?

    Stop speaking in parables E35.....you ain't Jesus. Just say what's on your mind!

    Sorry about that

    The marketing ploys was..."What are we supposed to do now that we kicked Mikey out of the band and now Wolfie is in?....The only singer we could get back to erase what happened to Mikey....is DAVE".

    ...you said...with a 16 year old in VH they are doing great.....I think I was trying to make a sarcastic comment regarding, maybe this is the new formula....kick out a long standing member...get a kid to play....and success will follow...

    It was a confusing post I made, believe me. I don't even understand it entirely now that I look at it. But I think I see what I was getting at.

    And I am well aware I am not Jesus...thank you very much
