    I'm hearing all this reunion rumors and everyone swears DLR is back in the band. That may be true however one thing bothers me. You would think that this story and total lack of concrete information would be a great scoop for the tabloids. Now I'm no big fan of those rags however you would think that a picture of Roth heading into a studio or 5150 would bring one of those news hounds big bucks. It is strange to me that no pictures surfaced like that if infact the rumors are true. It would not take much for them to follow Roth. It's a little suspicious to me.

    I'm am obviously a HUGE Van Halen fan, but let's face it, currently these guys aren't exactly A list artists to the tabloids. I've never even seen 5150, so they could show a picture of Dave walking into any house and say it's 5150, and I'd never know the difference.

    I think it just shows that the mainstream doesn't really give a sh*t about Van Halen. I mean, they'll care once the album comes out, but those rags are more likely to get excited if Ginger Spice is seen entering the studios with the other four (then again, they might even be old news for the tabloids - unless one of 'em is naked somewhere!)

    Yeah but its been pretty quiet lately regarding entertainment news as is usually the case in the summer months.
    But a small amount of curiosity still exists regarding this band, not enough to sell million of rags, but to get people to check it out at the cash register.

    The rags mentioned would more likely stir up sh** and lies! That's how they sell. I wouldn't believe anything that came from
    them... well.. maybe a few things...
    but the band probably avoids the tabloids as much as possible.
    As much as Brett drives by 5150, I'm surprised he doesn't see anyone coming and going!?!

    You guys really think it's because VH isn't big news anymore, I don't buy that. Look at all the magazines that ran articles on the rumors. I got to believe a picture of Roth going into a studio where VH is known to be would be worth 25K or more. Something isn't right here

    They'll sell more if they have pictures of one of them being unfaithful/or a beat up wife/ or going to jail!
    This is why "no news is good news".

    For what it's worth, the Globe or the Star was the first place I heard Sammy was booted. I was thumbing thru the magazine , like we always do when we're in line at the grocery store, when I came across an article saying Sammy was out, Dave was in. They stated the whole Father's Day phone call, the Greatest Hits cd, Ed & Dave working together again...It was dead on balls accurate!

    It wasn't until a week or so later until the rest of the media broke the news...

    Sometimes those magazines are right on the money!

    If the tabs think that a VH story would help sell their crap, they'd do a VH story.

    I do remember all those "Edward and Valerie, on the verge of divorce!!" peice-o-shit stories from the tabs, though.

    But think about it, the majority of tabloid readers care nothing about VH.

    Maybe AFTER the reunion becomes official they'll cover it, but I'd doubt before.

    OK, I know I'm probably gonna get shredded for this, but her goes:
    I'm starting to think that maybe the "rumours" and snippets of news regarding the RETURN of Diamond Dave is simply just not true at all. (I certainly don't wish this) but I gotta say I'm starting to doubt that anything is going on between DLR and VH.... Vince may be right, if they were recording somewhere don't you think at least ONE tabloid rag would grab onto that story???
