    Default Time for a change!

    Hey Brett isn't it time to change the Van Halen Links News page? I know Van Halen hasn't put out any new music and Eddie has pissed most everyone off here for hawking his EVH gear but there has been plenty of things happening between Chickenfoot and a little with Van Halen since March 25, 2009.

    Even my 10 year old son asked why the same picture of Chickenfoot has been up for so long. I know how you feel about Van Halen but there has to be something positive you can put up isn't there?

    Big bad moderator here. Moving to feedback where it will get the appropriate attention it deserves.

    It could have been any news since March 2009, Van Halen Guitar Hero, Chickenfoot concert reviews, Chickenfoot DVD release or any of the new EVH products ect. The page says Van Halen Links news and good or bad there has been news since March 2009.

    I have actually mentioned this in the past and while I don't remember what Bretts comments were it seems to me that the dislike and almost hatred for what Van Halen has done since 1998 has kept him from wanting to change the main page.

    If most people here are getting their Van Halen/Chickenfoot news from the Van Halen News Desk and don't care that the main page sits idle for months and months at a time maybe there shouldn't be a news page?

    Does anyone else have ideas for this page?

    I'm bookmarked to come straight into the forum page. Never see the news page anymore. Change can be good though, for those that come in that way.

    Maybe he should put up a big fat page that says "No news is...bullshit. Click here for the links". Maybe all in black with "Van Halen 1974-1985 R.I.P."

    Same here. No reason to even see the Home page. My guess is Brett hasn't seen the home page in about 2 years.
    .
    .
    .
    VH with Dave ('78-'84) - The best years....the "real" VH.
    VH with Sam ('86-'96) - Incredible era....."We have renamed this town 'New Halen!'.
    VH with Gary ('98) - Fucking disaster. WTF was that??
    VH with Wolf/Dave ('12-'15) - Amazing comeback. Smokin' album and tours.

    I don't know. I mean there's been little snippets of news here and there, in Ed's case his gear, in Dave's case, his art, and recording with John 5 and Bissonette. There was the disaster of an article with Ed and Tony that pretty much dashed any hopes that they were at the very least, working (Ed's hand aside) which Ed stated they were, and in fact also stated that they were rehearsing outside a restaurant, so that proved to be BS. There's really nothing that you could put down as "news" on the lead page that would appeal to the masses. As a band, there's been no news at all. Independently, just bits.
    I know the CF thing is old, but what could replace it? Probably just an updated pic of CF, with DVD details! lol.
    She looks so $#@!'n good ,so sexy and so frail....Somethin's got the bite on me, I'm goin' straight to Hell.
