    Default David Lee Roth is the one who left us I limbo!

    If you think about it Dave is the one who back in April told us about a "Special Project" we spend a lot of time dumping on the brothers but Dave has just as much responsibility to the fans as they do especially when he gets us all excited and then falls off the face of the earth. "come on Dave gimme a break" what say you?

    Perhaps, but I would speculate that Roth would tell us something every week if he could. He is most likely "advised" not to by "the band" (Ed).

    I really believe that Dave is going to walk away at some point.

    Tbh, I don't know why he sticks around?

    He's had two successful tours with VH, upon his return, and a well-received album.

    The man is known for not being idle, music-wise, so is the addiction to the VH limelight so intoxicating at this point, that he's willing to just be kept on a leash?

    Maybe he's still holding out for a true CVH reunion.

    I think Dave knows which side his bread is buttered on. He doesn't want to piss off the brothers. Why? My guess is that he either really does need the money or he's an attention whore. Perhaps both. He only says what the brothers want him to say.

    Dave doesn't need the money and we're talking about a guy who took a job as an EMT in Brooklyn. 21st Century Dave is a different animal, "attention whore" is not on his agenda. In my opinion, all the delays are due to Eddie. Not because he's being a dick, but because of his health. I'm not saying something's wrong, I'm saying he can't go 100 miles an hour anymore.

    I think we all have to come to the unfortunate conclusion that releasing new music and touring is not the top priority of Ed, DLR, Al in Van Halen and Mike and Sam in Chickenfoot etc.

    They all seem to have other interests that are more important to them. God bless them. They all seem to be wealthy and happy.

    Something is obviously being worked on, everything in the VH world takes more time than almost any other band (outside of Boston of course!).

    I am sure he thought it would be out by now.

    But to go with what Cabo Chris said, I kind of am interested in hearing what DLR recorded with John 5. An acoustic concept album by DLR interests me. I don't think it will be average. It will either be great or a train wreck. But that's DLR.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    One way to get Dave to talk is to keep making threads like this. Blaming him and calling him out will get a response at some point. Most likey " Get Ready, Again". Eventually he'll throw us a bone.

    He's not quitting VH. They could throw him out. But leave of his own free will? Nah. He's too smart for that. And there's various reasons why. He's finally back in after trying for a very long time. Brand recognition. VH anything will sell better than DLR anything. That's just a fact. Musician ship. Ed and AL are unique and extremely talented. Try finding a drummer like Alex. It's very, very difficult. Not just chops. His feel and style. Same with Ed.

    It's like Randy Moss. He's in New England and highly successful. He starts squaking. He wants more money. He wants a contract extension. He's Randy Moss. They trade him cause he's starting to be a distraction. After practicing with another team he tells the media how much he loves the Patriots and Tom Brady. Loves the Craft Family. Loves Coach Belicheck. When you drive a Ferrari and get stuck driving a Ford. You want the Ferrari back. Randy still says he'd like to be back in New England. DLR doesn't want to have to play on the practice squad anymore. He's a starter in the bigs.

    I'll paraphrase Risky Business

    "The Van Halen brothers. There is no substitute".

    I might make that my sig. Pretty good.

    So, do you guys think we'll get an official announcement on the "project" before Christmas, shortly after Christmas, 3 or more months from now, 6 or more months from now, or next Christmas?

    Put me down for March. Not to get it, just to be told what it is.
