    Okay,I mentioned this in another thread about 2 months ago.But I think I need to re-itterate.
    Let me just predicate this thread with some background on my Peavey connection.
    Back in 1996 when "ME WISE MAGIC" came out,I was doing backflips and was just waiting for Van Halen to pick up where they left off in 1984.Don't get me wrong,VH with Sammy was awesome,but....... anyway.
    So,VH does the MTv walk on that nite with Dave and I'm just losin my mind(you should have seen me,really)The next day I am celebrating,cranking Halen at my music store,showing people nothing but Wolfgangs and 5150's and just ready for the new complete album and tour schedule,right?
    Well,that same day,our Peavey rep by the name of John Howeren paid us a visit.
    Well I'm mentioning the bump in Wolf/5150 sales that they are gonna get with DLR back in the fold.
    He then dropped the bomb.
    He said that the Dave reunion was not permanent and that VH was deciding between an unknown(whom I'm assuming was Mitch Malloy)
    and someone a little bit better known witha few hits under his belt.Mr.Cherone I assume.
    Well,I made an ass out of myself telling hime that he was full of shit, because we all know what happened with VH a few days later.
    Well,obviously,Mr. Howeren was correct.
    So,to make a short story long,I saw John again at the Nashville NAMM show 2 months ago and of course asked him,with extreme respect of his answer no doubt,"What the fuck is going on with my favorite band?Who is the singer?" and he said and I quote"who do you think it is?"of course I said DLR and he confirmed.He then offered the information that the record is FINISHED and that all legalities are being finalized and that we WILL have a new VH record with Dave in 2001.He did not know when an announcement would be made however.
    I've gotta believe that this source is pretty damn good.John has 3 times hooked me up in the past to hang with Eddie and knows that I am a VH fanatic.And he knew shit back in 96 before anything about the non reunion became public.
    So,in regard to Sammy's quote,I am writing it off.
    Van Halen is back with Dave and that's it until Eddie or Dave says otherwise.
    Sorry about the length but I felt it was called for.

    Sounds good, Tone. Now, tell us about hanging with Ed! Did you really get to do that?

    Yeah,I've been fortunate enough to hang with the Edman a few times.Acouple of meet and greets and one or two other times on a non concert backstage level,more of a NAMM show invite only thing.In fact,The Inside used some of my pictures of one of them because Jeff(i think thats his name)the editor wasn't even able to get into one of the little get togethers.
    One backstage memory that is the coolest is OU812 Monster of Rock at RFK in Wash.D.C.
    I was 18 and the Meet and Greet was really like a fuckin party.Everybody hangin and drinkin.The guys would sign whatever you want.
    I rode a suped up golf cart doing donuts with Alex.
    Alltogether very awesome.It did not suck.
    Too many details on the other times for to waste posting space here.
    But I will say I've seen Ed jam outside of the band with other people just as nuch as I've seen Van Halen.Ed smokes in every situation!!

    Great stories Fat Tone.

    (And you KNOW you wouldn't be boring us with the details. LOL. )

    As to your buddy John's statement concerning VH, it's just another drop in the bucket of circumstantial evidence that Dave's back.

    Pretty cool story, Fat.

    But what I want to know, as do very many of us here, is if the album is indeed completed, why do we (the general public, not just VH fans) have to wait until February 2001 (tentatively) for the new release? By then the "new" material will be nearly a year old.

    I mean, obviously I love this band like no other, but it's shit like this that has me, as well as many other VH fanatics, frustrated beyond comprehension.

    If nothing else, for once, it's nice to hear someone actually naming their source. I don't recognize the guys name, but I know nothing about Peavey or any of their reps. Sounds good Fat Tone, thanks for the post.

    I hear you, Fur Elise.

    To quote a line from a Tom Petty song, "The waiting is the hardest part."

    I think that there might be a legal problem with Daniels, which is holding things up. That guy was an ungodly, lame-ass scumbag.

    It wouldn't surprise me in the least if he had a hand in all this.

    But don't worry about the sound being a year older.

    VH's sound is timeless.
