    Was just on Melodicrock.com and they posted Sammy's message about his live CD, DVD and upcoming tour. But, the site states that the situation w/ Planet Us maybe more permanent than reported. There maybe another reason than given by Sammy. What could it be??? Could it be that Sammy may be in fact working w/ VH?? Could it be that VH has a new lead singer and Sammy isn't talking w/ Mikey again because the band doesn't want him to??? Who knows???

    Maybe Journey's busy, and Sam is working on his DVD and upcoming tour with Lynyrd Skynyrd?

    It could be any number of reasons. Who knows? We might never. [img]graemlins/brickwall.gif[/img]

    Sam's pretty good at letting his fans know what he's doing. And it sounds like he'll be pretty busy in 2003. Sam will let us know what's up..

    Two possible explanations:

    1. The aliens that Sam has said visit him now and again were not happy with the turbulent galactic vibe that emanated from this cosmic marriage of Journey, Van Halen and Jimmy Buffett, so Sam has put it on hold while he waits for the next download from K-PAX.

    2. Planet Us was not allowing Sam to devote enough time to hawking booze and shampoo.

    I think Planet Us is Dead. It started a year ago and nothing has happened since. To speculate, It just didn't happen. Schedule conflicts and no label didn't help. I'm guessing by the end of the next Wabo summer tour, MA should be working on a new VH project. If not, VH is dead and you may see some MA-SH project. I think after 3 studio albums and many tours and a live CD Sammy has done about all he can do with the Wabo's.

    Sammy has already said he doens't want to do another solo album and I agree with the above comment that this looks like a final payday tour for the band. I just don't see Hagar being able to sell another Wabo tour in '04.

    I don't see Michael involved if it's postponed yet again. He was left off of his leash... I mean, he was allowed to take some time in 2002 to "tour" with Sammy and develop the Planet Us "with Eddie's blessing", but I'm sure (hoping,at least) that VH now has plans of their own.
    BTW, does anybody ever know what info Andrew from Melodicrock supposedly was going to post if he knew some more details a couple of weeks ago regarding VH?

    That's a good question, I was wondering it myself. I'm guessing its the same thing that Grant at VHND mentioned. The whole "Sammy's back" thing. I doubt that rumours true. I'm more sure that VH is doing absolutely nothing, with absolutely no plans. [img]graemlins/cry.gif[/img]

    But because Andrew hasn't gotten back to us on the VH rumour, this leads me to think that it is the same reason that Planet Us is finished. Sammy is back (on some level) with Van Halen.

    Once again, I don't buy the rumour. VH has shown absolutely no sign of life in well over 2 years, and I see nothing on the horizon to support any resurection in the near future. Mike said just last week "The band is on hiatus while Ed takes care of some personal issues". [img]graemlins/cry.gif[/img]

    I am starting to buy into Grant's posting of the "Sam's at 5150" rumor.

    I think there has been some contact between Ed, Al and Sam by way of Mike. We can speculate all we want and its fun and until we get disapointed, its all we have right now.

    Grant stated that his source that told him that info was "very reliable" Which also helps lead me to believing that something is finally going on inside 5150. Things that the band probably wants to keep as quiet as possible until they have patched up all the wounds and the time is right for them to make an annoucement.

    So heres to the possibilities. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Hi,
    Just to add to the speculation...
    I have heard nothing to suggest Sammy is or will be working with VH again.
    Update on Planet Us this week - as soon as I can get anyone to talk ON the record [img]smile.gif[/img]
    It's nothing big though, just points the finger a little...

    I thought the word was that they would release the album via Journey's independent label. If so, then I don't think finding a label is the problem. Like Sammy said, they're just busy with their respective bands.

    The VH news I hinted at was unable to be confirmed by any source, so I dropped chasing it.
    But the upshot of the info was that the band were still waiting out a certain contract and that was due to expire end of 03, early 04...sorry, can't confirm that one at all.

    I don't believe there will ever be a Planet Us album now
