    This was pulled from the vh@yahoogroups list, and should do for a good laugh...or at least have you shaking your head in disbelief:

    Hello Edward, Alex & Mike,

    Perhaps you do, perhaps you do not know of me. I am writing to tell you
    that due to your presence within the rock and roll community, albeit a very
    nonpublic presence as of late and due to the internets powerful nature, good
    times have come and gone and most likely will rise again. It seems that I
    am only part of a small number of people whom appreciate Van Halen III.
    That is according to the emails and newsposts I have read since III.
    However, the III tour concert attendance overshadows the writings of the
    many. Some brief detailed history.

    1. Chris Morris, a CIA trained non-lethal advocate, owner of is my wife's uncle. His wife, Janet is my wife
    Leondas aunt via Leondas deceased mother Debra whom died of kidney failure
    in 1979. While facing his computer screen, Chris told me that I (as in me)
    wrote Van Halen III. I do not recall "writing" III. However, there was a
    time and place in the late eighties that I recall being in well a bubble of
    time where every note of every song past, present and future was performed.
    This memory remains with me daily. I am sure there are others whom
    experienced the same reality. I did write of the preceding via the Van
    Halen Mailing List and around the time III was in
    production. Quickly, fact turned to fiction and I was and still to this day
    referred to as the author of III. I state for the record, that even with
    that bubble, you three individualistic musicians and Gary Cherone did the
    hands on work based on your creativity as a newly formed unit and there is
    no dispute over that fact.

    2. While using the Van Halen Mailing List and, I found
    there were far too many expletives arriving daily into my email box. Not
    necessarily directed at me yet before my eyes and into my brain. Not once
    did I ever mention my family or friends personal and professional lives. I
    left the Van Halen Mailing List for in my opinion there was absolutely no
    creativity and room to expand and grow there. Approximately six months
    after leaving the VHML, I was in my fathers office and about to use his
    computer. I removed some papers and to my astonishment, I found a dozen or
    so names that were identical to names from the VHML and
    Same persons? I honestly to this day know very little. My father left the
    company he was with and likewise, Gary Cherone left Van Halen too.

    3. I was writing about red hair in and about a now
    disbanded band named "Stillwater" led by bassist-vocalist Sheri Lynn and
    where the band was to perform (Cousins of West Yarmouth, MA). That night,
    six red headed woman arrived at Cousins...

    4. Around the same time period, an individual of the same size and facial
    make up of you Alex arrived at Cousins. Silently he played pool. The man
    had white splotches all over his neck. Alex, with you in a neck brace on
    stage, I wonder exactly why there is a coincidence.

    5. While using and the Van Halen Yahoogroups mailing
    list, I can say I was for the most part, insightful and polite. I believe
    for that reason I was allowed the opportunity to record the Fleet Center
    show during the III tour. During the search just beyond the entrance, a
    guard said I could go in even with my recording device. In plain sight my
    wife and I sat while I hooked up the microphone to the recorder while an
    usher explained to at least two other people that they could not record and
    I was allowed the opportunity. Unfortunately I left the radio on and all I
    had was a blank cassette at the end of the excellent performance.

    6. During that same summer I wrote either or the
    yahoogroups Van Halen mailing list a letter about a life long friend of mine
    and his rental property located in West Yarmouth, MA. There had been word
    that a vacation was planned for the then, four of you and your families, a
    break from the routine. My friend, mentor and the man I can call my father
    even though we are not related was trying to fill a week in August on one
    side of his duplex located very close to the ocean. 10 minute walking
    distance with the aromatic smell of marsh drifting into the area sometimes.
    I wrote in the email/post that I enjoy watermelon and asked that should we
    meet that you bring along some watermelon for my efforts. I never asked
    about whom rented the vacation home and never showed up at my friends rental
    property until a little bit after checkout time on a Saturday. In the
    refrigerator was two nicely sized slices of watermelon.

    So, I ask you to ask yourselves, what do you make of this "phenomenon"
    called the internet and its simple yet complex relationship with the
    individual. I have read that some of you frequent the internet so I surmise
    that there will be a definitive reaction to this post. In light of that, I
    must say that I am a singer and I am part of the "germination" process of
    creating original material with some very talented local musicians. We plan
    on performing "Mean Street", "Right Now" and "Dreams" in the rehearsal
    studio. Most likely one of those three will be performed on the stage for a
    freely admitted audience, hopefully sometime soon. There are four original
    MP3's and five sets of lyrics located at my site, Copy write protected of course. Please
    feel free to do as you will with them should you choose to. It would be a
    tremendous impact should you choose to communicate with me.

    Catch a magic moment and do it right here and now,
    It means everything.

    "This is a lttle prayer dedicated to the separation of church and state. I guess if they are going to force those kids to pray in schools they might as well have a nice prayer like this: Our Father who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation indivisible as in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail. Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."

    I read in the news that Creed's singer had a protective order put on some girl. I wonder if Van Halen has had or will ever have to do the same type of thing.
    Your favorite band sucks.

    Hello Edward, Alex & Mike,

    Yea that guy is a nut, anyone who was on the old VHML 95' or 96' will remember him he finally got banned and went into hiding for a while, a few of us that know of him knew who posted that in the first few lines, the guy is a nutcase but harmless.

    After reading this thing a couple times I think that Hannibal Lecter wrote this.

    Could this be part of the forth installment of the Hannibal series called "DRUMSTICKS" how Hannibal ate the Van Halen brothers while in hiding at 5150 studio? [img]graemlins/scared.gif[/img]

    Well, Mr. Mahler clearly suffers from a classic case of schizophrenia. Hope he realizes that Eddie packs heat...
