    Default Thank You Brett

    I'm not throwing in the towel just yet. But, I wanna take the time to tell you thank you for this place. It is an awesome site. I have learned so much history of Van Halen that I never knew before by reading various threads and posts from VHLinks. Although, I haven't been a member here quite 4 years, I feel like I'm losing a best friend. I know we could be losing a great wealth of information. Quite often I sit on the sidelines and witness the friendship and comradery of many longtime members. That in itself is a hell of an exprience. I got to be a member of this site and experience the tension, anticipation, and thrill of a new VH album release. Then, experience everyones reaction to the album. I was amazed how the set list was tracked for every show on VHLinks. I even got to relay the set list as it went down for the two shows I attended. I cannot imagine another album and tour without this place.

    Anyhow,
    In case we close down,
    Thank you for the killer ride man. It has really been badass !!!
    EVH is GOD

    I think I put this in the wrong spot--move if needed.

    Very cool thread and opening post ! A lot of us feel the same way .

    This the THE best VH site around IMO - although the VHND and Halen.com are both fantastic too . I've learned so much here and have been lucky enough to be a part of the action . The huge amount of VH pedigree is astounding , as well as the fact that many of our posters/members are amazing musicians and luthiers in their own right .

    The fact that the site owner and mods are active and engaging is just another added bonus !!! Certain threads/topics get heated briefly , yet there's very little of the goofball mentality of "let's drag this out and harass someone for months on end ... " Refreshing to say the least

    The fact that ALL eras of VH get their due is also a breath of fresh air .
    I've seen/heard/learned a lot about my favorite band that I didn't know before . The insight and guitar advise from some of our esteemed players has been invaluable . I truly hope this great forum continues for years to come .

    A heartfelt CHEERS to all who are here for the right reasons , and a special nod and high-five to Brett - for running this premiere Van Halen fan page . Major kudos all around

    My nine year tenure on this site was interrupted for a year, but Brett gave me a second chance and I want to thank him publicly for that. Thank you, Brett. This is the best Van Halen site on the Internet and I am thrilled to be a daily part of the celebration of our favorite band, in all of it's versions.

    Many thanks to Brett and the moderators.

    I've got faith will make the goal by Wednesday. But even so, I too want to extend my thanks and gratitude to Brett and all the moderators here. This site has been part of my life for the past 10 years, I check it daily because it's the best group of VH fans, and people in general, on the net! So again, thanks to Brett and all who've been involved in making this place churn for all these years. Looking forward to a few more.

    It ain't quite over yet. Loosely quoting Gary from the TOJ album: Obesity has (not!) taken her bow (just yet)...

    Too early for a swan song - but anyhow thanks to Brett and the other crew members / mods for enabling the ride we've had so far

    Yes, thank you, Brett. But also thank you for the upcoming year starting October 1st!

    Because we are DEFINITELY meeting the goal in the homestretch. And if you see people who haven't donated and are posting, ask them why they haven't.

    Dude, just send an e-mail to Janie, I'm sure one of the guys will save this place...it's more a part of the band now than their own fucking site is. We are like a shit stain on their favorite underwear, we ain't going no where. If it does come to pass that we don't make it, thanks for hosting the party for 15 years...it has been a study of anthropology to say the least. FORD is still a fag.

    Thanks to Brett

    Thanks to all of the Linkers, some of whom are the best virtual friends a guy could ever ask for.

    Hope to see everyone tomorrow. Oh, and let's figure out a way (legally) to raise some funds for this place next year.
