    Well, here we go again...
    Just read the latest in the contradictory world of Van Halen and especially, Edward Van Halen! Edward stated last weekend "Whether we have a singer or not is a different story...depends what we do."
    And contrary to that comment, not so long ago Valarie said, Eddie and the band are waiting for him to contact them ( Dave that is)
    So now, the latest sign that there will be NO release or tour this year is the worst news, if true, to come out !
    I guess Mike Anthony meant the Fall of 2002 for a release??? [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img]
    Could the end of Van Halen be near? [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img]
    What does everyone think? [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img] [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

    I guess I am not suprised that we wont hear any new music in 2001. I was very hopeful of a springtime announcement. Especially in light of Mikes comments regarding the tour and expected announcements "soon".

    I like Andrews approach of a challenge to the band. However, I would never expect the band VH (whoever that is) to respond to this.

    I dont know when we will ever hear what the plans are. I dont think they plan to retire as a band, YET. The only way that happens is if health becomes the reason. IMO !!

    Roth is still quiet as far as a reunion goes. Ed claims no singer and that it depends on what they do. Sounds to me like he isnt sure what he plans to do.

    IMO, it's been over for quite some time. I don't think Eddie wants to rock anymore. If he wants to quit, then fine, he has that right. I just wish he would tell us what the hell he is going to do, instead of giving us the silent treatment. As far as what Mike said about a tour this Fall, I don't think he knows anymore of what is going on than we do. He has to be as sick of all this waiting around shit as we all are. Eddie knows all of us fans have been waiting forever to hear some info. We recently find out that him and Dave worked on 3 songs LAST July, and he just now decides to tell us. It was nice of him to tell us this nearly a year later. So much for letting the fans know what is going on.

    A little off topic, but I wonder what effect this will have on the sales of Mike Anthony's new bass line, as well as Peavey Wolfgang guitars. The people at Yamaha probably aren't too happy.

    In my opinion.....it's over. I can't beleive I'm saying this. I have always been very optimistic but now I think it's futile to hold on to any strings that might support a new album/tour with dave. They have been to secretive with the inner workings of the band for too long. I respect the fact that Ed has some health issues, and that they take priority.

    "No news, is good news"...to me no longer.

    The only thing I'm wondering is IF it is over what is DLR doing? Just because EVH may want to call it a career I doubt Dave does. You can be damn sure Dave would be spilling his guts if VH was over and done.

    Supposedly he was working on a new album at the time Cherone left so would he pick it back up? Although many have considered him a relic of the past, the past 18 months have given him more publicity than he had received over the past 10 years.

    Although things may be extremely slow, I feel wheels are still moving.......although barely.

    They are done.

    They have to start all over again or call it quits.

    I don't think it's over for sure....

    BUT

    Sometimes I get the feeling it's 1978, and we're standing outside the gates of Graceland waiting for Elvis to appear!

    I think Dave is in a tough spot right now. He is probably pretty anxious to make some music - cause it has been a while for him now as well. BUT - if he makes a solo CD - Van Halen will say to the public; we wanted Dave - but he decided to make his own music - making him look like the shit.

    What a bunch of children. These guys are supposedly grown adults!?! "We are waiting for Dave to call" ; " I haven't heard from the sinse July"; "It's not my decision." Ok you morons - each of ya need to pick up the phone and call - stop dropping cyber hints and fucking make it happen. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    If you think Dave is in a hard spot, what about Alex and Mike? They're slaves to Eddie's whims about their livelyhood.

    Speaking of Al, is he dead? Have there been any reports of him being seen since '99?
