    I want nothing to do with news of a box set on the way this Christmas, or anytime soon, especially with everything so unstable right now.

    If Van Halen released a box set 1 album after a greatest hits, it would be a signal to the world that any version of VH before that day is DEAD.

    I for one do NOT want a box set of any kind.
    Maybe a disc of unreleased stuff or something at some point. Besides, they just re-released the orginal 6 albums. How many times do they expect us to buy songs we already have?

    At this point in time, I would have to agree. I'm not ready for a box set with a few new tunes. I would like to have a couple albums of new material. Eddie has enough music that the world is eagerly awaiting.

    I think we are just speculating, I mean nobody knows what is going to happen in the wacky world of Van Halen.

    Just to add though, I will not buy a box set either !

    Did not buy the first and will not buy a second.

    Wow, feeling a lil' assertive Today !! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Like 79th said, it's all speculation.
    But over the last few months I've seen plenty of posts here and there about the idea and I just wanted to see what everybody else thought.

    If they have so many songs and "3" new songs with Dave in the bag, instead of putting out a doomed box set, why don't they just release a single for a movie or something?

    But then again if Dave isn't in their plans, it sure would be hard to shoot a video for it and WB or whoever their label is would want a video for damn sure.

    But why not do some instrumentals?

    If that's the case, then I'd love to see them release a box set. If it's over, it's over, nothing we can do about that. And if so, it would be nice to get a package of cleaned up cd's from the 5150 vaults.

    Yeah....if it is all over (which I hope is not the case!!) I would love to see Ed start cleaning out 5150 studios and give us alot of unreleased stuff. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] There must be tons of stuff that never made it to the light of day. [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]
    Might as well......JUMP!!

    If it's over, its over, then the situation changes.
    I would assume Ed and Al would be recording music and instrumentals until they can't anymore (for album release, soundtracks, etc.). I think the fact that they haven't yet says to me that VH with a permenant singer is still in their plans.

    If they released some intrumental soundtrack work, they'd have to field a bunch of questions about their future that they are not prepared to address.

    In a way I hope it is over. If it's over then at least we'll get SOMETHING. Instead, these guys have been supposedly "sitting around and waiting to see what happens" for the past 4 years thinking something great is just gonna happen on it's own and appear out of nowhere - that's just not the case.

    Note to Eddie: If it's over, then call it a day - ACKNOWLEDGE the fact that the band is done instead of pretending about a future and put out some unreleased shit.
