    I'd like to know why I keep coming back here...?

    I don't think I'm alone with this feeling. Why do we come back? Why do we care? Why can't we move on and just forget VH? They've proven to me that they couldn't care less about us? Why can't we stop caring about them?

    Going on four years now and our best info comes from golf magazines... It's absolutely disgraceful how they continue to treat their dwindling fan base, yet we keep coming back and asking for more.

    Why?

    Is it because we grew up listening to VH and that reminds us of when we were young (Nostalgia)? It can't be just that. We grew up listening to lots of different music; the reason must be deeper...

    Maybe it's because we've been waiting all of these years for Dave to reunite with VH and it just makes sense for that to happen now? After all, if the Eagles could reunite, certainly VH could right? The money is there, the fans want it, there's an opening in the band for a lead singer... It just makes perfect sense for it to happen right?

    Maybe we’re gluttons for punishment? Maybe we actually like being toyed with by their Webmaster, and enjoy the ups and downs we get from the VH saga. After all, can you name one band out there that can produce this much drama without actually doing anything?

    I liken this situation to losing your first true love. You’d do anything to get her back, but she won’t have anything to do with you. This doesn’t prevent you from trying to get her back though because you’ve never loved anyone as much as you love her. Then one day you see her with another guy and you realize she’s gone. That’s when you start to grieve and that’s when you finally start to move on.

    I can’t move on knowing that Dave wants a reunion, but Eddie wants…? I need to know what Eddie wants. All he has to say is “I’m not going to work with Dave”, and I’m gone! My grieving process can officially begin. But until that day comes, I guess I’m stuck with playing games with their Webmaster and every other Azcardinal, Sea Hag and jimmy page out there...

    No, my handle actually comes from Dale Jarrett who drives the #88 car in NASCAR.

    As for answers.. lets just say I'm not going to hold my breath.

    I'm here to witness the carnage of this self-induced Van Halen train wreck. The way these guys communicate is a crying shame. I swear, college kids studying P.R. could use Van Halen as a lesson in what not to do.


    Members of Congress. What the fuck is Van Halen doing to their fans??

    Listen...

    I'm new here and I don't know Brad, Brett or anybody else but one thing seems very clear to me.

    Millions of fans are EAGERLY awaiting some scrap of real news about Van Halen, in whatever form they take. If anybody holding an official position with VH, posts a message with a "wink" and it's a joke, then you suck.

    And if EVH, AVH, MA, DLR, SH, GC, WBros. or anybody else connected with them knows that it's being done intentionally, then I've had it!

    If this is just more bullshit, you can keep the band and you can have the discs back. I'll be glad to send you my old ticket stubs & t-shirts as well, just send me the friggin address.

    This is ridiculous!

    Well, the reason lots of us are here is because we have nothing else better to do. The claim that millions are anxious fans await the return of the formerly mighty Van Halen may possibly be grossly overstated... I suspect that there may be 5-10 thousand fans who really give a shit!

    You ask why we are here? You know the answer!

    This band has always been what we all want to hear. Who gives a shit about cryptic messages and who's pissed off? We are waiting for more news. We have been waiting for 3 years! What is the difference if we wait 5 days or 5 months? Just crank up BOV1 and relax. When they are ready, they will do something. I don't care if it's Dave, Sammy or even Patty Smythe, as long as they are playing. My sig line says it all! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    The answer to this post is very simple. Why do we care? This band has touched the lives of millions of people with their music and entertainment. This band is one if not the greatest Rock N Roll band ever. To see them make the mistakes that they made recently (or far back as 6 years ago) and then slowly fade out is a heartbreaker to many fans.
    Why are we here? That's easy as well. There is something inside of us that thinks that maybe, just maybe, this band isn't done. That they may actually have some music for their LOYAL fans to hear. That something inside is hope.

    So the answer to some is that they've made friends here over the years so they come here to chat. I can understand that.

    For others they have nothing better to do anyway, so why not come here and see if any progress has been made? I can understand this too, although I'd like to think there would be something better to do than to come here and try to figure out Brad's riddles.

    Then there's the group that comes here because they just hope VH isn't done. I'm one of those people, but you know what? We're living in denial. This band is done. Eddie's living in denial too. He says he doesn't want to become a nostalgia act, but you know what? That's all there is left for VH. Dave has seen the writing on the wall. His last tour was all old school VH (and it rocked my ass off I might add). All good things must come to an end and that time has arrived for VH.

    VH has a couple options left for them on how they want to go out though. They can get a 4th singer, sell even less records than VHIII and go out with a whimper. Not much of an option if you ask me. Or, they could get Dave back; make a record with him and then do a world tour. This makes the most sense to me. Doing this could even prolong their careers if they could just somehow manage to get along. They could even get Sammy back, make a record, and then tour with him. It wouldn't pull in anywhere near the money a Dave reunion would, but from what I can tell Eddie would prefer to work with anyone BUT Dave, so this is a real option. Their last option is to do what they have been doing over the past four years and just fade away into oblivion. This is the worst way I can imagine them going out, and the most painful for the fans to endure.

    We don't know all of the facts because Eddie chooses to keep everyone in the dark. We're forced to speculate on why VH would do the things they do. My guess is that Dave would tell us what's going on, but he's afraid that would burn down the last bridge to 5150.

    I just don't understand why Eddie can't come out and say something to his loyal fans. I'm not asking for a press conference. All I'm asking for is a message sent through Brad to the fans. If he wants to take some time off, then please just tell us. If cancer is the problem then again, just tell us. But, if negotiations with Dave have reached a stalemate (my guess) then do something about it. The window of opportunity for VH is now. Who knows what could happen tomorrow that might close this window. Someone could get hit by a bus for Christs’s sake! Get an arbitrator to tell you both what's fair. Do something before it’s too late.

    Ultimately this whole situation is in Eddie’s hands. It’s his band with or without Dave. I just hope he does the right thing. The fans want an encore Edward. But more than that, they just want to be treated like people.
