    I still find it very amusing that the latest update is "FORE" back in May of 2002. Furthermore, that post was about Eddie being at a stupid golf tournament.

    Also funny is the Pleasuredome with the same statement "We're sorry, The Pleasure Dome, the band's official message boards will be temporarily closed until further notice. Update: The boards will re-open a little later down the road, bigger and better than ever. Thanks for your patience! ".

    I love Van Halen, but they sure treat their fans like shit!

    Nobody is treating anybody like shit. They probably don't update the news because there is nothing but rumors going on anyway and the dome isn't being finished because the the lack of VH activity- i'm guessing? We are all bored and anxious. Not much we can do, but at least VH isn't posting shit on a daily basis stating that nothing is going on right now. Because nothing probably is. Besides the Dave suit and Sammy/skynard tour- there is no news. Eddie and Val are just separated- NOT DIVORCED and are probably working shit out. Let's just sit tight and be positive people. It bites- but what can you do?? It's no ones fault.

    Hey! Listen here! Maybe fucking Alex can say something or maybe even Mike can but I don't buy it when they can't give the fans a glimmer of hope! I do think they treat the fans like shit! [img]graemlins/brickwall.gif[/img]

    If you followed the history of VH's official site youwould know that when there is official BAND activity... not to be confused with individual band member activity... then we would see more going on at the site.

    It's really a simple concept... Van Halen as a band is not presently doing anything that they want to post on their site. Think of it as a whole entity not the sum of it's individual members.

    With the exception of Edward's cancer updates... it's very apparent that the official site is not being used as a communication portal for the individual members... only for the band as a whole. Again for which there is nothing going on...

    Now I'll be the 1st to admit I'd be willing to settle for an indepth weekly report from the cleaning lady that dusts 5150... but that ain't newsworthy!!

    The only real consolation we have is Mike's madanthonycafe.com... there you actually have a very steady stream of info for the last year or so with pictures and even music downloads!!

    I suggest we count our blessings where Mike is concerned. Apparently Edward and Alex are not interested in communicating with their fans... it's a shame but it's our reality... so I suggest we cry a river, build a bridge and get over it!!!

    While I get the fact that nothing new has really happend (thus the lack of updates), I don't get why the site doesn't strive to be more informative. It is my understanding that VHND is not an official site but, it still manages to incorporate official news regarding current and former members of the band. What would be the harm in the official site doing the same thing? Dave, Sam, and Gary are all part of the legacy that is Van Halen and all have been active of late. I would think that generating traffic to that site in lieu of the lack of actual VH news would be a benefit to the site when the band finally decides what in the hell they're going to do. If nothing else, it would give us a friggin' reason to go there 'cause God knows there isn't a reason right now.

    Sean good point but remember Dave, Sam, & Gary are not presently members of Van Halen... a significant part of their past but the official site is for the current band...

    The reason fan sites exist is an interest in the former singers and the various permiations of VH... that's why we're here... But obviously VH is not interested in celebrating their past as much as we are...

    the only hope i have is: there must be something going on in the van halen camp, why should they keep their homepage on? i mean it costs alot of bucks (webspace, host etc...) to keep it up...

    and i think if van halen would be over, they would tell us that...

    I think that as the Official site it would be nice if and when any of the band members make a public appearance along the lines of Mike joining Sammy on stage or Ed joining Leslie West and the NAMM show, it would be nice if the site posted some news and a picture or two.

    Whether anyone in the VH camp likes it or not, Dave, Sammy, and Gary contributed to the band and should be mentioned in related news, especially when a current member does something with them.

    I think the band and its Webmaster have a misconception as to what interests the fans.
    Could this be magic?
