    Default Van Halen Box Set Cancelled

    Classic. Dave is right. Van Halen is run by idiots.

    http://www.antimusic.com/news/13/Mar...Canceled.shtml
    I can't remember which comedian said it, about the current state of Van Halen, but he said right now, Van Halen is like a really hot playboy playmate with a prosthetic leg.

    BRING BACK THE CLASSIC LINEUP!

    This sucks, but not sure we can lay the blame at the feet of the band and it's management.

    Warner Brothers has all control over the catalog - licensing to Rhino, doing it themselves, etc...

    Oh no! I can't get all the albums I already own in multiple formats several times over again? Ruined my day.

    Seriously though. As far as box sets go, this was a lame release. Yawn.

    Same here. Don't know what the point of releasing this was.

    This is already being discussed in the thread about the box set. Jeff posted the cancellation news on 3/26/13 at like 2 in the morning EST.

    Default Time to bring back the bag set idea

    The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.

    This next part could really confuse things. Let's stay focused. #asis

    I was going to get it only because I didn't own any of the remasters and was looking to make a purchase. The timing of the new packaging which I like would have been perfect.

    You know, everything is not always about the hardcore fans. Every fanbase seems to get up at arms whenever a new compilation or greatest hits package is released for their favorite band. "These are all just the same songs all of us already have!", etc.

    Don't you think it would be a good time in light of VH's renewed visibility over the last year to make a package available for people who haven't been hardcore fans for decades? That's what these things are for.

    I don't care about anyone else. Other people aren't me, so they don't matter. Give me what I want and I'll buy it. If not, pffffffft.

    In the age of Spotify, Pandora, and iTunes, I find it admirable that compact disks are still out there. That set would have made a nice display piece, though.

    Was this just going to be a collection of the '78-'84 albums in a box?... Boring!

    This is a good point, maybe some of the young'uns could discover some good music, if they could only figure out what a CD is and how to play it...
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.
