    Default Interesting article...

    I can't remember which comedian said it, about the current state of Van Halen, but he said right now, Van Halen is like a really hot playboy playmate with a prosthetic leg.

    BRING BACK THE CLASSIC LINEUP!

    I can't even have an opinion on ANYTHING anymore unless it's exactly what everyone else thinks...oh and if I do it means I HATE this album, and hope it fails. Man some of you can fuck off...seriously. - BRETT

    An interesting article,and it has many points worthy of merit and consideration.Van Halen certainly has'nt treated the fans like we want,but I will still support as I always have for the last 30 years.Album may not be very good at all,but I will hope for the best,"3"was'nt very good either,but bless them for giving us something.The "3" tour was awesome and this one can be too.One thing i noticed in that article was Warner Bros. and VH had no agreement.I thought that was rectified a year or so ago,so I wouldnt read too much into that article,as it is more of an opinion, and everyone has one.Bring on the first single,and we can go from there.

    I hadn't heard of any of the shows where Ed was a drunken mess? Are they thinking of the 2004 concert?

    My thoughts exactly, the guy doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground of what he is talking about. Another article written by FORD.

    Sammy needs to shut the hell up.

    He did some horribly drunken shows in 2007 before they stalled the tour so he could go back to rehab. Watching some of the drunkenness and lack of playability by Ed, I'm surprised Al and Dave put up with it for so long before they pulled the plug so he could rehab it again. In 2008 after he finished rehab he was on point and on fire though.

You'd think he'd want to set a good example. I don't know how Al and Dave put up with that either. He was off in his own drunken stupor, probably also on pain meds or pills for anxiety/relaxation. Some of his drunk playing on the 2007 leg seemed worse than 2004. Thank goodness he went to rehab before the last part of the 2008 leg because he tore it up and seemed totally refreshed and back to his sharp form.
