    Yes. They have had their share as well.

    I don't know if that's the general consensus or not. Some will agree,
    but
    others won't....

    Yes and again I have to say, we just have to be patient (I know it
    sounds
    cheesy, especially after all this time).....

    Points 1 and 3, yes I have. Two, I'm not sold either way. I'm sure
    they'll
    put out a box set one day, but it's not where they're coming from right
    now.

    I agree, 79th.

    Why do we need to care what Brad thinks at all as far as a VH boxset is concerned? Man, I tell you...the more I read from this guy, the more I think he's got an ego the size of Montana.

    And if Mr. Smarmy is SO in touch with the band, wouldn't you think he'd have conveyed these messages a long time before now?

    "Yes and again I have to say, we just have to be patient (I know it sounds cheesy, especially after all this time)....."

    How more patronizing can he / THEY be???

    [img]graemlins/irked.gif[/img]

    Patient for WHAT??? Sounds like someone or someones need to take a tumble off their collective pedastals.

    So it is gonna be Sammy then!

    At least they are kinda talking a bit now. First Mike says he is not leaving VH, now Brad is at least communicating, not saying a hell of alot (because I don't think that any of them can legally). But at least its something new to discuss instead of another Sam vs. Dave thread.

    That's it. If I ever become the president, Brad Starks is going to be my press secretary.

    The press: "Is President Eddie having sexual relations with any of the interns?"

    Brad Starks: "I don't know if that's the general consensus or not. Some will agree, but
    others won't...."

    I was just thinking that if I was in a band as big as VH I would want to let my fans know what was happening. But if my hands were tied legally and I couldn't comunicate what I wanted to I would probably keep communication at the level that VH has been to date which I know sucks but maybe it is out of their hands. I mean if Ray Daniels is tying them up legally, which has been suggested in the rumour mill, they don't exactly want to come out and say hey here is a new album and we are going to be touring blah, blah, blah. Why? Because our friend Mr Daniels would have his claws into that pie before you could scream "Eddie, Eddie, Eddie" with your fist in the air. We are talking about a much great Evil than we all realise.
    VH would not be the first band to be screwed over by a manager.

    Just a thought,
    Dodge.
    Opinions are like Assholes, everybody's got one.

    It gets more frustrating reading shit like this. I hope the real reason for this silence is a good one. If it's legal reasons, that's understandable. If it's personal reasons, that's understandable to a point. Would a statement on the official site once in awhile be too much to ask? Sorry but I get so wound up reading the same old crap from Mr. Starks (be it his fault or not).
