    Well, guys, it seems the inevitable has occurred or at least is occurring right now.

    This is news from within the co. I'm trying to get details as we speak.

    I hope that maybe there is light at the end of the tunnel. Could be that VH wanted out, but who knows. This might just be the final nail in the coffin unless VH has something brewing that no one knows about.

    I don't think WB would let them go if the reunion was a reality..

    I know that WB has dropped a ton of people and employees since AOL took over. It's totally about money now.

    I'll be back with more if and when I hear anything.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

    Thanks for the information Van Edge,

    I'm speculating here, but if this is true, perhaps VH has indeed called it quites as a band. I would suspect that if any of the members want to continue on in any capacity they probably first must dissolve any contracts with WB. Maybe this opens the door for future projects for individual members. Regardless, I am sad but also hopefull for some continued presence from Edward. Lets face it, we all need to hear greatness from time to time. Peace [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    I agree with ya on "they wouldn't drop them if there was a reunion"

    It was obvious that WB didn't give a shit about them anymore... their VH page was like 50 years old.. hell, half the time you couldn't even find them listed anywhere on the WB site!

    however you could spin this another way--maybe VH knew that if they continued with Warner Brothers that they would have to pay everyone and their cousin money for future recordings and this way they no longer have to pay Ray, Sammy, and whoever else.

    who knows??

    I just keep thinking back to those famous words from Eddie all those years ago --"Van Halen is a million dollar company run by a bunch of Bozos"

    If they do get dropped by WB, and the reunion is on-somebody will pick em' up-Virgin maybe??

    if the reunion is OFF and they are getting a 4th singer then I can't imagine any reputable lable picking them up in this current market condition.

    and if there's no VH AT ALL, then I don't know how much longer Mikey could keep his endorsement deals

    oh well, break out the wiffleball bats, backyard grills, and gas up the soccermom vans! Van Halen has now become boring grownups that probably don't deserve all the attention we've been giving them the last couple of years.

    "blowing it" doesn't even BEGIN to describe the situation! [img]redface.gif[/img] [img]graemlins/sleep.gif[/img]

    If that where true, maybe Sony or Universal or a lot more would be interested in VH. I don't think they'll let them go that easy. Their records are still selling, just wait until a new album and the whole catalog will be flying of the shelves.
    It's just a matter of patience, they have to work a lot of things out.

    I would be surprised if VH would have a hard time finding someone to sign them to a record deal.

    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    Word.

    Way too much $$$ to be made.

    No WB = No reunion.

    Goddamn... It's come to this?

    VanEdge, thanks for the news, bad as it looks to be.

    If this happens, it means that WB has absolutely no confidence in a reunion, and it definitely means there were no real reunion plans for this year. If things change instantaneously and the reunion's back on, rest assured another major label (most likely Sony/Columbia) would pick up Van Halen in a heartbeat.
