    Things will remain quiet in the VH camp 'till 2002. I think we all were starting to think that anyway. It also mentions of Eddie looking for a 4th singer. Oh well, this topic pales in comparison to what our country is going through.

    It also notes that the possible sticking point was the % split among DLR and the rest of the band - with DLR requesting 50% and the band countering with 35%.
    To be honest, 50% is ridiculous - but 35% seems more than fair to me!

    C'mon Dave, gimme a break!!!
    Be glad that they are willing to give up 35%!!

    If, in fact, Eddie is looking for a forth singer; BIG MISTAKE!

    Melodicrock also stuck by a ridiculous batch of rumors (including the Covercheeseball thing) until Scotty Ross himself had to call Andrew and kill the story.

    I don't believe there's an ounce of truth to this 50% crap. Dave has maintained all along that "Eddie Van Halen is nobody's back up guitar player" and that the 2 of them are equally responsible for the band's success.

    If there were any discussions over percentages at all, it would be because Alex was trying to get a cut equal to or higher than Dave. This would be completely unacceptable as Alex is not a primary songwriter. If there is to be a split of anything other than 25% each, then it is only fair that Dave AND Eddie, as the songwriters, get the higher cuts, and an equal number for each of them.

    It should be 25% per band member. That's the magic combination.

    I am sorry, I just dont believe that Dave thinks he should get 50%

    We need something factual. 50% of what ?

    Sorry, I dont believe this one.

    I do believe Dave wants 50% because Dave knows just as well as all of us knows it would never last more than one cd, and 'most' of a tour. Better to get all you can while there!

    Dave is a middleaged bald fool stuck in the 80's and unable to get out!

    Hey all, and hey Ford...
    I am afraid that the info is correct - at least the part that you have most trouble with here.

    The Split % is correct, I have 3 or 4 different confirmations from all over...
    One record exec, one producer (Andy Johns), and a couple of other industry guys that were privvy to the info.

    What I didn't print was the amount of ill feeling there is out there towards Ed from within the industry. People seem to have generally lost their patience with him. Not good stuff.

    As for the split - I believe it was for a % of what ever deals the band signed for - tour, album, advances, merchendise etc.

    I will continue to keep an eye out for any info that could possibly be confirmed, but that's it for rumours for now.

    Regards,
    Andrew.

    I read this post and your post of "I hate DLR." You're a fuckin' retard. All you are trying to do is stir up some shit. Go to the Pasture Dump if that's what you want to do. There's plenty of DLR haters there. None of them have ever seen him and VH together in concert, just like you.

    Hey jackoff, Van Halen can't continue without Dave at the helm, so take your bullshit elsewhere and take Sammy with ya...

    Dave deserves every penny he gets including and up to 50% for the rest of VH ever thinking they can continue without him in 2001 and beyond!

    I've seen VH with DLR and believe me, he just didn't do it for me. In concert all he wanted to do was talk. That might have been ok if he would have stuck to doing it between songs instead of during. As for the PD, it's been my experience from reading posts that most people over there are pro-Roth. A few seem to prefer Sammy, as i do myself. However, just because someone prefers sammy, you should not assume they have never seen VH in concert with Roth. I'm sure most posters at the PD have. Some of you people need to get over your general attitude that DLR is God.
