    Default If VH returns, they should do it like AC/DC is doing

    I've been thinking...

    AC/DC has just done a massive blitz in regards to their new album and tour. You hear clips of the new tunes during the MLB playoffs, the tour has gotten a lot of press...

    If VH does return with a new album and tour, they need to do it like AC/DC is doing.

    This attitude of shunning the press and not being accesible will not help them if they do come out with a new album and tour.

    Any thoughts???

    I agree!

    The new ACDC cd ROCKS.

    VAN HALEN, it's your turn...

    New music, new tour, media blitz.

    HELL YEAH.

    I'll take it anyway. Promotion or no promotion. I want NEW music. Thats all. Not asking much. It's been over 10 years since the last full length album. WTF! Get on with it. Dave, Sammy, Wolf, Mike, I don't care what combo they come up with, just do it already.

    Van Halen will not be making another album. Why does everyone think this is going to happen?

    If I made $93 million on tour I would not be doing shit either.

    The last 12 years of EVH output has gotten ripped to shreds by the media and the fanbase.

    I doubt he wants to go thru that again.

    Eddie Van Halen in 2012:

    "ESQ: What are you going to do with all the material that you wrote with Sammy Hagar?

    EVH: Oh, I hadn't thought about that. That's some great music. They're just on vacation, maybe. They're off to college and they're going their own way. Who knows?"

    What's the motivation with new music? It's going to suck anyway. They know it and they know that they can keep suckering in our cash by playing the hits with any combination of bass and singer.

    I don't recall AC/DC ever getting dumped by their record label.

    It'll either be over or under produced and the songs will be sub par. No more signature harmonies (well maybe some thanks to Pro Tools).

    I have very low expectations for any new music from this "band."

    Well hopefully you'll be very surprised and it will be amazing.


    We shall see...

    I expect some KILLER new tunes, a fast boogie like Hot for Teacher that Eddie previewed at NAMM a few yrs back, some fun songs like Jump, and some smokin' instrumentals with Ed, Al, and Wolf.

    Can't wait.

    The cash cow has left the pasture... they've milked the nostalgia gravy train as far as it can go.

    If and when VH decides to shit or get off the pot... they will go the way AC/DC is going. Azoff has both bands as well as the Eagles and others who are locked into these Wal-Mart super sales.
