    OLD NEWS, but NEW to the VH Camp...



    Eddie Van Halen Launches EVH Brand Signature Striped Sneakers
    Available Online at EVHGear.com And In Stores Now

    (Los Angeles, CA - April 14, 2009) Legendary rock guitar icon Eddie Van Halen and partner FEA Merchandising are proud to announce the release of EVH Brand Signature Striped Sneakers.

    For nearly 2 decades, EVH fans have been attending Van Halen shows wearing homemade versions of the striped sneakers that Eddie wears onstage, modeled after his infamous red white and black striped Frankenstein guitar.

    “So many people would ask me, where can I get a pair of those? After hearing that for about 15 years, I figured they were something that people obviously wanted, so making them available and official seemed like a natural progression,” Eddie said.


    In addition to the red Frankenstein theme, the shoes are also available in White with Black stripe theme, which pays tribute to the guitar Eddie rewrote the rules with in 1978 and Black with Yellow stripes, which pays homage to the guitar that Eddie displays on the back cover of Van Halen II. All 3 color themes are available in high and low top versions, with the familiar “5150” tag adorning the spine.

    Available now online at www.EVHGear.com and at department and specialty stores worldwide, EVH signature striped sneakers follow in the footsteps of other EVH signature items like Wolfgang guitars, 5150 amplifiers, and EVH accessories. These classic canvas style sneakers have been “road tested” by Eddie over the course of several tours and were most recently seen on the sold out 2007 / 2008 North American arena tour with his band Van Halen.

    Yeah. And because shoes are of much higher demand than actual music

    Is the Van Halen PR machine blind or just fucking stupid? So what's his answer to the other question people have been asking for fifteen years: Where is the new music? His answer, "Ahh, I've got ten albums of material stashed away," or "He has bad work ethic," or "We needed to go our seperate ways," or "I didn't want to work with the Little Red Worm or Sauce Sobolewski," or "We'll do stuff in the summer after Wolf graduates and I get married."

    "I respect that youre passionate about this but what your saying is complete idiocy..." - MF5150 on McDonald's "preying" on young kids.

    The Main room at VH Links is a d-e-s-o-l-a-t-e place nowadays.

    But, hey, why not post the newsletter that every member of VH Links already gets to every email account each has? Anything that can ignite a Dave vs. Sam / Mike vs. Wolf / Shoes vs. Tequila / '04 vs. '07 argument (or any combination thereof).

    I don't get the newsletter. I signed up, but never have gotten it. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one. Exchanged a couple of emails about it way back when, but they never figured it out I guess.

    You know, anything that comes out in the news letter has always been discussed here for at least 2 weeks prior. They should start calling it the Van Halen Carrier Pigeon.

    Are you fucking kidding me????

    They've been off the road for almost a year - and we get a official announcement from Ed that they're making SNEAKERS?!?

    Here's an idea. How about you tools take time from your 'stressful lives' and record some fucking music?! I mean the only person who REMOTELY has an excuse to NOT record music is Wolfie cause he's in school.

    Ed has handlers that can plan the wedding. Dave is completely MIA - along with Al. And this is what we get??!? Pay more money into the Eddie Van Halen do nothing fund for a cliche product that will be overpriced?

    This band has officially reminded the fans that they have become a complete nostalgia act & joke.
    Winners come and go; legends are forever.

    WHA??? Are you shittin me?? HELL YES! But I don't think "smitten" would quite cover it......I'd go more along the lines of unconditional love/lust.

    Oh the irony. I'm loaded up and getting ready to desperately try and score some CF presale tickets, cranking out new CF music, looking at their website which has new updated info every so often, and the conspicuous silence from the VH camp is broken for a pair of kicks.

    When this "news"letter showed up in my inbox - I SWEAR TO GOD - for a moment, I thought it was a joke sent by one of you guys. I saw phrases like "road tested" and "natural progression" and thought it was a parody of the Fender guitar Press Release.

    It's really so silly that I feel soooo pissed off at Eddie... but... he just seems resigned to cashing in on his legacy rather than progressing it.
