    Last time I looked, it still says Van Halen Forums at the top. I'm sick of seeing supposed fans flaming out on Eddie. So he protects his interests in shit he created. Everyone of you would do the same. Maybe he has his reasons for not speaking publically about what he is up to. You act like Eddie has nothing better to do other than piss on your Van Halen fantasies. We can't even get a Sammy/Dave consensus going in here. How the hell can they possibly make everyone of you whiny pukes happy? He has said many times that he would rather speak with his guitar. Many of you supposed fans were down on the band with Gary before you even heard a note. If they would have made the most incredible album out of the gate you would have denied it. 3 wasn't the best effort but who's to say the next one wouldn't have been? Just back off and give him a break. If he is indeed sick, how would you feel about the posts you leave here if he died? Sammy has a board and so does Dave. If you really hate Van Halen why not move over there and post something you can feel good about. Maybe the moderators should start a I hate Van Halen room. You can all spew your hatred of the band there.

    Sorry, but something needed to be said. Flame me all you want.

    Yeah, we almost went a week without one of these. Thanks for taking the time to give Ed the benefit of the doubt. I'm sure he appreciates it greatly.

    NON of the MODS hate ED (Do you guys???)

    I still love ED and welcome anything he cares to contribute to the Sammy/DLR DLR/Sammy tour or to any other band as well as VH with a 4th singer...

    A 4th singer would be great. Since NSync is breaking up soon, it'd be wise to recruit one of them right now.

    BTW, MikeL's post was funny as hell!

    Hates a strong word. Ed's been a dick to his fans the last few years. Some people obviously like that. I don't. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Just what did he personally do to you? Everyone I have ever talked to that has met him talks about how friendly and gracious he was to them. Everytime I have seen Roth in person he has had at least one bodyguard with him and as many as 6 and won't let anyone near him. Who's a dick to their fans? Don't get me wrong, the first four Van Halen albums are the best. But that horse is dead.

    If by horse you mean the band, you're right.

    Do I really need to explain how Ed's been a dick to his fans? It's easy to be nice in person. He's got an image to keep up. Apparently he doesn't feel it would be gracious to give fans a heads up when he isn't directly confronted. That's just great.

    And you think just because he isn't ready to talk (when you have no idea what he is going through) makes him a dick? Get a life man! Why don't you find another band to like while we wait for him to decide what he's gonna do? I'm not happy about it either but just because were fans dosn't mean he owes us anything. We pay for the albums and gigs and that's exactly what we get. Until he starts selling tickets to his personal life, it's really none of our buisness. I hope he's in good health. Everything after that is frosting on the cake. The down side to having a message board is we all just stir up shit that may just need to settle for awhile. As you can see I was here back in the day. (Wheeze) But just hanging out here waiting for news is like watching water boil. That's not Ed's fault. That's ours!

    What you appoligists don't understand is that it is about respect. I don't expect you to understand it, and you don't need to understand it. It simply wouldn't change the way you bitch and moan if you did.

    Dude, I could understand this sort of sentiment from someone who just tripped across the whole sordid VH scenario this week.

    But Etrigan, a Links lifer like you? You've GOT to have seen how desperately overplayed this topic is. Surely you haven't missed the historical context behind the simmering bitterness that you see. Surely you haven't missed how long it's taken to build. Surely the utter multiplicity of factors over the years inviting rancor among the VH body fanatic hasn't escaped you.

    It's all too easy to see why some drooling short-timer - like another newbie self-styled hotshot looking to make his bones with some of the more heavyweight skeptics around here - would come swooping to Eddie's defense as if he were making some kind of original point. But you've been watching this whole thing well nigh unto three years at least! Probably more, right?

    Sorry, I'm just a little

    How long does it take him to be ready to talk? We're going on 3 years now. The only time we get quotes from the man is from golf magazines. He has a website. He should use it. A simple "Van Halen is on hiatus right now, but we'll be back as soon as possible" would be a start. For all we know they've retired. Is it really asking that much to have him make a statement regarding the band through his website?

    [img]graemlins/sleep.gif[/img] Same old clichés. Get a life. , find another band to like (aka you're not a true fan), he doesn't owe us anything, yada yada yada. You're right. We're not true fans because we want any information at all regarding our favorite band. We not true fans because we want to know if Eddie's still sick. Whatever.
    But just hanging out here waiting for news is like watching water boil. That's not Ed's fault. That's ours!
    No it is Eddie's fault we have no news. It's his band and therefore it's his fault he has no PR sense. It's unbelievable how people like you will excuse anything Eddie does no matter what.

    Listen, if he's sick and/or dieing then I can understand most of what he's done. That doesn't mean he shouldn't show his fans some common courtesy and tell us what is up with his band. If it's over then just fucking say so. If it's not, then please give us a timetable.

    Oh, and it would be nice to know if he's ok. But if that's too personal then so be it. Heaven forbid he actually addresses his fans about ANYTHING.

    I took a serious break from this board for just that reason. The only reason I'm here now is because I hope to hear good news as far as Eddie's health. I was here when some a-hole had everyone, including the media, was convinced that the new singer was going to be David Coverdale! You have to realize that if Ed has really beaten cancer that's the kind of thing that makes you prioritize. He has family. Everything else takes a backseat to that. Rush is just now putting out an album after 5 years due to the fact of what Neil Peart went through. It just stuns me that everyone is grabbing the torches and pitchforks because they havn't made an official anouncement yet. God forbid Eddie come in here and reads this shit. If it were me I'd say screw these people. I'm gonna go play with my kids and enjoy life instead of touring and having to deal with "Fuck Eddie" sign's in my own crowd.
