    Default Why does this website suck so bad?

    http://www.van-halen.com/news.html

    Come on, for an "official" website, it's got to be the biggest, most useless piece of crap in the history of websites?

    Forget the fact that half the catalog is wiped out, there is no news, cool photos, stories, etc. Even the merchandise sucks. You'd think this would be a great avenue for him to sell all of that crap he's been putting his name on. You can't even buy the music on the site.

    How freakin' lame.

    Oh, come now!... since it's resurrection, it's been nothing more than a marketing tool. Links to 'I Love All Access', EVH Gear, High Profile media.

    If you want something for the hardcore fan, pick up the recent Guitar World where we were told to "Get a life".

    Van Halen was at one time the best Rock band in the world.The brothers were never Fan Friendly once they made it big, never.I went to the second show of the Van Wolfgang tour in 07. I got the VIP backstage thing Roth was the only one who showed up to say hello.We were told that we were not allowed at the soundcheck because after the first gig in Charlotte Ed was pissed off about fans being there. Their own website reflects that always has. It would have been that way even if electronic media existed in the 70s or early 80s too. Thank god for Guitar Magazine,early MTV, Arseno Hall, and Letterman.

    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    Their website could be great but just isn't. No surprise there. At least Chickenfoot has taken to using the web as a great fan-friendly tool.

    The explaination for this is actually quite logical... we "the fans" are still sitting in an Edweird imposed "time-out" for our childish, selfish behavior exhibited on the band's web-site and discussion board the Pleasure Dome back in 2002...

    We dared to ask for information, new music even just a simple "Hi, how ya doin?" from the emporer and his court. Then some even had the nerve to point out some of the less than stellar moments and dumbass decisions the Van Halen's brought on themselves...

    So we sit in time-out... told to get a life... but be sure and stop by the EVH store or your local musical instruments dealer and purchase some of our highly sought-after, over-priced striped crap from the icons and unparalleled professionals.

    LOL at the title of this thread. Well you will get no arguments over this.

    You know back when Brad took over as their web guy and moved all his Encyclopedia site stuff there plus other things it truly was an amazing site for VH. Too bad they don't want to go in that direction. What's there now almost isn't better than nothing. lol

    It actually gets updated constantly, the only problem is it gets updated in VHtime, so to the rest of the world it seems like it never gets updated. You should see how quickly they release new albums on VHtime.
