    Scorpio, your topic is fine. It gives me a chance to vent a little bit. For the first time, I'm feeling doubtful about this reunion with Dave. I know I should keep the faith but the band's silence is ridiculous. It really makes it difficult to come into this forum along with the official site and be disappointed every single day. Yeah I know what Mike said at NAMM but he did say they would make some announcements shortly (or soon). I'm tired of all the rumors because there never is any evidence to support it. I've been guilty of passing along some reports from DJ's but they are never right.
    Even if they are, no one wants to give up their sources because they're afraid of losing their jobs. If that's the case, then don't talk to anyone.

    I'm sorry to take up time but I'm reaching my limit in all this shit. Van Halen to me is the greatest Rock and Roll band ever. Their music has inspired me, helped me thru difficult times, and has gotten me pumped for workouts and games. I'm not asking for much but just a word or two from them. If the reunion doesn't happen, so be it. I just want to know for my own piece of mind.

    this is the downside to living in the information age.
    think for a moment what it would be like if this was happening 20 or 30 years ago.
    we wouldn't be killing ourselves and being disappointed every single day because we would not have had any avenue where we thought we could get any serious information.

    VH is doing the right thing. If it works out, we'll find out. If it doesn't work out, we'll find out just the same. But at least they aren't the ones hyping up an album and tour.

    We are becoming the victims of our own expectations.

    Im gonna have to agree with ya Edge. Living in a world of seemingly unending knowledge, its hard to deal with the fact that we cannot know anything about what VH is doing right now. It WOULD be alot easier just to be left ignorant to it all, and just be so damn surprised when the eventual outcome does happen. Its the same in life overall, knowledge may be power, but the more you know the more apt it is to hurt or confuse you. I know the boys are doing something cool right now and Im sure we'll hear about it soon. Until then, pop in something from 78-98, sit back, relax, have a cool one and just bask in the glory that NO MATTER WHAT, Van Halen was is and will forever be the greatest rock and roll band on the planet.
    WHOAOH! Hey you! Who said that? Baby how you been?

    Yeah, we've all got to remember that the lack of news today does NOT make Van Halen any less great.

    No news does not deminish what Van Halen has accomplished (brilliant music) - you can't take away a given. Lack of news creates resentment amoung the fans (even the die hards) - that will eventually limit sales / tours.

    If and when Van Halen does something (i.e. within 6 months) - they at least have the luxury of not having any new / worthy competition.

    What's really amazing here is the fact VH has kept everything so quiet in the age of information and technology . This really makes them look powerful . I don't think the CIA could even crack VH . Kudos to our boys for their spirit . I'm still sick of waiting though [img]smilies/sleep.gif[/img]

    Funny that when VH was making an album (the follow-up to III) that not many people were excited about, they had some updates about it on their site. Now that it seems that they are working on material with Dave, which is a lot more exciting to more people than another Gary effort, they turn off the information tap.

    Bottom line for me, I understand why they are silent, but I do think they are missing a great opportunity to build up some solid goodwill with their loyal fans.

    Throwing some information the way of the fans, releasing some rare audio and video stuff on their website, these are things that would be so easy for them to do and they'd reap the benefits ten fold. But they stink at P.R., sorry to say.

    The Official site claimed they were going to have some kind of weekly question thing where the band would answer fan questions. It hasn't happened to my knowledge, and that would have taken very little time out of the band's schedule. Also, there was supposed to be Official VH radio, and I don't believe that ever came out did it?

    You know, in reality, not many bands actually give us information. And unless you hang out at a lot of record stores or have some job related to the industry, most of the time you only know something new is coming when the single hits or you see the album advertised as coming on the following Tuesday.

    It's interesting that when a band gains some measure of fame and fortune, the people that like their music suddenly feel that they should be welcomed into the record company's inner circle and given updates as soon as the label (in this case, WB) learns about it.

    Perhaps the best way to think about all this for us is along these lines:

    Always assume a band is working on another album unless they announce they have broken up or retired. They need to make a living, and this is the only way they can.

    Never assume anything is due soon until you hear a single on the radio. Don't concern yourself with the details before then. Otherwise you're bound to be caught up in the situation and suffer undue (and unnecessary) emotional strain.

    Honestly, to tell you the truth, I haven't lost interest in the situation, per se. But I'd have to say I'm desensitized to all of this. It's been three years since the last album, and if I don't hear anything tomorrow, big whoop. It's just one more day to throw on top of the pile - more important things (work, school, parents, girlfriend, niece) to worry myself over.
