    Default A Call to End Van Halen, Right Now

    I've been a lifelong fan, but after reading that disgusting Billboard interview, I call upon David Lee Roth and Alex Van Halen to end Van Halen this very day. They have the power to do it and protect the legacy from even more damage. Enough is enough.

    The reasons to keep Van Halen together are dead and gone. Previously known as a musician's band, the band is now a travesty of everything it stood for and only going on as a money-making machine. EVH spends his time destroying his own legacy, and has done considerable damage to the body of work by spewing half-truths, lies and slander.

    I also call upon all fans to vote with their feet and wallet and not attend the upcoming shows, which will be a mockery of what this once great band stood for.

    It is time to end Van Halen.

    It's a free country, people can disagree. But there are solid reasons to think this way. I've met the band one on one. I've talked to Alex at length. I cannot believe he would go along with this.

    Fuck you! I am going.
    I will also buy any hopeful new music they may create in the future. If Eddie means what he says about wanting to make a new album they will in some shape or form. If Dave is such a dance music guy, why does he make rock music albums still? ADKOT and that unreleased one with John 5? I think Dave needs to come down from his new Japanese ego trip and get back to basics. He was humbled a bit on the '07 tour, and his performances were pretty damn good. Started to get more carried away and full of himself once again on the last tour and tried to be more in charge of the band once again. The band could put out a rock album that had a little more Dave to it and not be an in your face album like the first 4, maybe a bit more 1984-ish.

    Well, no. I think that Dave once said "there's a little bit of Van Halen in everyone of us." He was talking about an attitude and a spirit. A certain type of optimism. You could feel it in the music. That Van Halen attitude is dead. I don't think Van Halen can exist as a unit just "going through the motion." But that's just, like, my opinion, man!

    I'll happily vote with my feet and wallet and have a great fuckin' time at the Red Rocks show on July 20th. I could really give a shit if Dave and Ed are friends or if EVH is a dick. As long as they play my favorite music for 2 hours and do it well on that Monday night I'll leave as a satisfied customer.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    I thoroughly enjoyed watching these two guys win three straight titles together in 2000, 2001 and 2002, and they were NEVER friends ...

    I'd rather call to end all bands that are great friends and play lousy music.

    Good point. Ed has always made things so miserable for whoever he wanted out that they left, somehow. Its passive agressive behavior, only this time he's taken it to the fans.

    If he wants it done, so be it, just fucking end it. Let Dave loose. He's gonna be just fine. As a matter of fact, Dave - why not just walk? Be free.

    Surely they are contractually bound for this tour, so nothing is happening until the tour is done. But for the love of God, its time to call it quits.

    Ed - get your head together and find something to do that makes you happy. Jam at home, whatever. Be free.
