    Default The band has got something to prove...

    According to the *latest rumors* on VH-LINKS and VHND:

    1) To prove they can still write... the band will put out an "all new material" album 2015.
    (Re-doing the old demos never bothered me to begin with.)

    2) To prove that Roth can sing live... the band will put out a live DVD/CD set this summer 2014.

    (Sure, there will be some vocal retakes... but even Steve Perry did the same for the live Journey albums.)


    Nothing like a little pride to motivate these guys. Bring it on!


    Again, only rumors... Let's hope there's some truth there... (although I'd settle for truth of a different kind haha.)!

    Ahhhhhh... Johnny B. Good.

    A new album would be great! It would be even better if they came to my area again and played a show.

    I don't mind the old reworked demos on the last album, because they sound awesome.

    Based on the personality of the band, if they put out a new studio album and a live album it’s because that’s what they want to do. I doubt they feel they the need to prove anything. I certainly don’t think they do either.

    Where are these rumours posted? A new live album? New music in 2015? Where has that been rumoured?

    IMHO , the band has nothing to prove to anyone . Yet , I'm also curious , where have these rumors been posted ?

    You'd prefer a live show in your area to a full album of new Van Halen?

    I love a concert, but I'll take ONE NEW SONG first and forever.

    1) There is a rumor that VH will release a live album this year, followed by a full album early next year. But it doesn't matter, because it's not true.

    2) The band has NOTHING to prove. (But of course it would be great if they wanted to blow us away some day—with something).

    3) The band has never released a CD of only freshly-written material, and I sure don't think they are about to start doing that now. (If they release any new music in the future, I would make an educated guess that some of the material would be a mixture of newly written stuff, some of the material would be incredibly good old stuff that they would be crazy not to release).

    Whatever is next on their plate, I'm looking forward to it.
    I'm hoping for a new CD next year and tour.

    You mean there's zero evidence to support the rumor?

    Or you mean that it's definitely NOT happening?

    The have zero to prove. But it would be a damn shame if we didn't get a follow up to ADKOT. There's no good reason not to.

    The way Ed was playing on the last tour Id take a new tour over an album. Not saying I wouldn't want a new album, but I wouldn't be disappointed if they decided to just hit the road. Throw in some deep cuts (LUTS, DDL, Push Comes To Shove) and Ill be happy.


    Ed was in the best form he had been in, in DECADES. Even better than he was in 1998, IMO and probably on par with his level of ability in 93/95. Watch his solo from RockUSA and it's easily the fastest, most mind-blowing he's played in 20 years.

    I can deal with no new tunes if it means I get to see The King in top form again considering Ive seen then 5 times (2x 2004, 2x 2007, 1x 2012) and he was only in true TOP FORM in 2012.

    I can understand how you older geezers would want new music though cause you've already seen the band live so many times. .

    But seeing Ed, in the form he was in in 2012, live from the 2nd row was about as close to a religious experience as Im ever going to get.

    The solo from the last show of the tour in Paso Robles was even better

    They were both incendiary. Unreal how far the man has come since 2004 when we all thought his skill was gone for good.

    as you are one in the know about these things ... Number 1 seems quite disappointing if true, if I read correct there is NO live or Studio recordings coming out this year or next ... 2016 is way to far away ... 2015 is too far ...
