    Default HYPOTHETICAL: 30th anniversary of 1984

    This is utter speculation here, but it occurs to me that with the possibility of VH playing some European or (hopefully) other international dates after their US tour finishes, the 30th anniversary of the release of 1984 may roll around before their next official release, (knowing how long it took them to make ADKOT).

    Would you like to see an expanded re-release, (ala Michael Jackson, Queen and Pink Floyd's back catalogue releases)? Or would you prefer VH head right back into the studio and release new music before anything else?

    I know there are some potentially complicating circumstances, eg. Michael Anthony's involvement in the original album, but wasn't he forced to sign away his royalties for 1984? Also, the band is no longer on the WB label, so I'm not sure how that might impact things?

    Anyway, if we suspect that people inside or close to the VH camp do frequent these boards, what might you like to see included in a 30th anniversary re-release of 1984?

    why would the 30th anniversary be any more important than the 25th or the 20th? Nothing issue for me.

    I think we'll see a new album first. They won't do a 30th anniversary reissue IMHO

    It would be killer if they ever released anything never heard by fans from the vault of studio recordings with Dave or Sammy.

    Would obviously not be up to their standards though or else it would have been heard so possibly in the vein of the last 30 yrs of Hendrix albums - ie not likely until they're all dead but hardcores would love it.

    I noticed in the new Guitar World TAB for Hot For Teacher there is only 3 band members listed as song writers. I'm so used to seeing the four names that it really stuck out when MA was not listed.

    Hope, they'll come to Europe and go into the studio afterwards. I don't need a reissue of the old songs. I want some new stuff.

    Other than repackaging... doubt WB would put out anything from the VH catalog.

    With VH now signed to Interscope... doubt they have many options to work with WB. Sounds like a pipe dream unless Interscope can buy out WB or the band themselves... odds are no one has enough money and there's no ROI to support such a deal.

    I'd say we're stuck with what we got on the old VH catalog...
