    VHND reports that Mikey said in an interview with Yamaha All Access: "we're saving the announcement for the right time." OK, I can understand that timing is important for making an announcement. However, I am wondering when that announcement will be made and why? What strategy do you suppose the band will be using when making an announcement? Any of you in the music or marketing (or both) business have any idea as to what Mikey could possibly be talking about?

    I can understand being quiet for a short period of time to build suspense, but IMO I think they are getting dangerously close to pissing people off by not giving any info at all.

    Here's a good example of why they will wait:

    XXXXXXX XXXX is the new singer
    We'll be putting out an album in 2 months
    and touring in about four months.

    Now we have 6 months of fans that wanted XXXX XXX to sing. They haven't heard
    XXXXXXX XXXX sing yet, but they already have a opinion of him.
    Timing is very important! They have old, new and future fans to gain or lose. So, they may move quickly after they make the announcement as to not lose a lot of fans.

    There are enough threads that basically say "if Dave's not in, I'm outta here".

    I really think Dave's back, but this is just a little scenario that could make or break VH.

    My other scenario, just legalities holding everything up

    Pissing off what people? A couple of hundred fans on the internet? I've not heard anyone at bars or out and about bitching about the lack of a VH announcement. When you talk to people, and mention that DLR might be back, they say that'll be cool. It's only time. Nothing to get upset over, that's for sure.

    i'm also not sure what they are basing the right time on, but it's is frustrating. i agree with mikeL saying that if normal people at bars and stuff will say "that'll be cool", but if daves not in then they'll be saying something along the lines of "who cares?"
    i'm hoping it's dave, though. i'm on an all dave, all the time thing with my stereo. vh1 cranked right now

    Going along with Angel's comments, the "right" time for this band to announce something is when they have hung out and recorded the album, rehearsed together, laughed together, cried together, got in fights with each other, made up, planned, strategized, smoke a spliff here and there, had a few beers, try to resolve all those issues that have been issues for decades, and decide to do what makes them happy and that's make music, which in turn, will make the fans happy. After the way things turned out at the MVA (regardless of whether or not Gary was already in the fold and DLR was never really considered as full-time back in), the band realizes how they can lose control of a PR situation. The waiting can't go on forever, and I expect some sort of announcement by year's end, if not, and album release.

    I was just stating that anywhere on any of these VH boards people show frustration with the lack of news. Some to the point of losing interest completely which counter acts the idea that the silence is supposed pump up excitement. I'm not saying they should tell us who the singer is right now but throw us a bone as to when we might be able to hear some new VH without sifting through rumors.
