    Default Swing and a miss

    guess we were wrong...

    Although it was strongly hinted that VAN HALEN would make a "special announcement" on November 30 at the Grammy Awards nominations concert, the event came and went without the band making an appearance.

    Grammy organizers had been promising for weeks that Wednesday's televised concert would feature "a special live announcement from a truly iconic group regarding their historic reunion set to take place on the Grammy stage on February 12, 2012."

    The official Grammy Twitter feed followed the announcement in early November with a message saying "Does this hint make u wanna 'Jump' and 'Dance the Night Away'?" — the titles of two of VAN HALEN's biggest hits.

    According to Reuters.com, The Recording Academy president Neil Portnow declined to confirm speculation that VAN HALEN was the band in question but told reporters on Wednesday that those concerned were not ready to go public.

    “In the world of creativity, everything is fluid," he said. "In the process of discussions that we had been having with an expectation that perhaps we would be at a point tonight where the artist involved and we, moving forward, would be ready to announce [a reunion], they weren't quite at that point. So it's live television, we go on to the next act. It's rock and roll and so on. That being said, we were genuine about the intention and we are genuine about the discussion."

    VAN HALEN recently inked a deal with the Interscope label for the release of the band's new album, tentatively due in early 2012. The deal was finalized two weeks ago and marks the first time VAN HALEN has recorded away from Warner Bros. Records, which signed the group in 1977.

    The new VAN HALEN album will be its first with singer David Lee Roth since "1984" was released on the last day of 1983.

    I don't really understand why any of us like or care about Van Halen anymore. They obviously do not give a f*ck about their fans. They do not deserve our loyalty, nor our time and money. Eddie and Alex Van Halen must be vying for the title of biggest asshole on the face of the planet. The only two members of Van Halen who ever cared about the fans are no longer members of Van Halen. If that is not evident by now, I do not know what it will take. What are we masochists? This is pathetic.

    Because for many of us, their music is the soundtrack of our youth/lives. It's kind of like Santa Claus (stop reading kiddies)... You want to believe even after you know the truth. You don't want to miss any of the magic.

    This is being talked about already in the "What'll happen on Nov 30th" thread...Didn't you guys know that a discussion can't take place in two threads? How long have you been Van Halen fans?

    So you're just here, of all of the pumpkin patch sites in the world, for the camaraderie? You weren't checking to see if they showed up last night? You weren't trying to kick the football, too? As much as I get irritated when this band does what they always do (basically nothing), I still expect them to do something more. Especially now with things supposedly moving in the right direction. I don't waste my days pining for a VH scrap but when it really seems to be around the corner, I start paying closer attention. I just hope the music makes the wait worthwhile.
    A lot of us are pathetic but here we are anyway. I was just throwing out a reason for why we continue to care.
