    Default Music Business 101

    One of the FIRST things this Mngt team should have done is get VH listed correctly on all the music sites. I keep seeing old pictures incorrect information etc. This is the biggest one. I still cant watch Tattoo on youtube via my blu ray internet connection. Also the single does not seem to being worked by promo teams

    You know that you are talking about a band that didn't update their website for like two years, right?

    Van Halen has completed a new cd of new material. Let's just be happy for that much. Baby steps.

    One of the FIRST things this management team should have done is get VH connected with its fanbase again. It should have done that though releasing snippets of information though the larger fansites, piquing fan interest by showing photos, videos, audio snippets etc.

    The NEXT thing the team should have done was announce a small, intimate gig at a club, press only, to announce that VH is BACK (bitches). They could also go one step further and bring in one or two die-hard fans to said performance to 1)show the fanbase that the band still cares and 2) generate more interest in said fanbase.

    They could have then gone one step further by debuting a new song at the gig, but not the new single, because that would spoil the impact the new single would have on radio.

    Then, after that, release said single and video in support. Let it run for a while. Maybe send some pictures to the fansites again, and if any videos that were recorded for a deluxe cd couldn't be packaged in because of time constraints, realase it as a freebie to the public.

    Indeed, thats one of the FIRST thing management should have done.

    Oh.... Wait....

    Yeah, I am not sure how anyone who has followed this band for any length of time can really be complaining about anything.

    They are hitting all the right notes for this release, they are doing everything asked of them by their fanbase.

    Reunite with either DLR or Sam. Done.

    Release a new album of originals. Done.

    Redo and update a few songs leftover from the Blueprint demos. Done.

    Make a video. Done.

    Throw in a bonus DVD with the release. Done.

    Do some acoustic songs. Done.

    Release some exclusive content to the fan sites. Done.

    Give us some free content. Done.

    Play a small club gig. Done.

    For me, this is a Van Halen dream come true, as I never thought, and I mean NEVER thought they would even release another album of original music ever again.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    You know, you are right, but I am over it.

    I have nothing personally invested in it. If they release a great album with this incarnation of the band, I won't disregard it just because of a missing original member. Just as I didn't disregard 5150.

    I didn't disregard VHIII until I heard it. Then (shudder) ewww.

    Oh I'm w/ you very much. At the end on the day they're a rock band. They make music. If I like it, I buy it, if not, I don't.

    Not complaining- ya gonna do something do it right- I have always hated those details not looked out for its so basic and can have an impact. As far as a campaign it is unique. Seems they are going for an organic approach and let it grow. Just happy we have something to bitch about that is worth discussing!
