    Default what's the deal with van-halen.com

    It's great we're getting videos, and the band is feeding tidbits to the various fan site..but I don't understand why they can't do anything good with their site!

    They have the videos..but must be hosting the server out of someone's basement because it's SLOW..I have to go to other sites to see the videos because it takes so long to load.

    At this point in the PR campaign, surely they should have a site that's worth visiting.

    As far as I can see from a really quick glance the page's source code, the videos are hosted by Vimeo, not VH. I recall Tattoo being slow when I watched it on the Vimeo page. That it's slow on the VH page is therefore no surprise...

    What's the deal with fans who keep bitching and starting useless threads?

    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    You could just insert certain things about Van Halen, and you would have this site.

    I'm pretty sure what we see at the moment is only a temporary thing.
    I'm sure the actual updated website (with graphics from the CD like the train, Tour infos, previews of the songs and so on) is already finished and they are just waiting for the release of the record to relaunch the site.
    That's common usage. Wait until the product is officially released before you launch your website with the corporate design.
    Stay tuned!

    Official band websites are often the worst ones out there, with very little information, no forums, nothing except for a few broken links.

    I get the feeling that Brad doesn't do much with the site because the band has been adrift for so long. Or he's just incompetent and they don't want to get another webmaster. He's been their webbie since at least 1996.
