    Default Billboard Article: The real zinger fans are ignoring....

    Almost everyone missing the real meat of this article. The end could be near, and hard to see any new VH music coming again w Dave...

    Go see Van Halen this summer it could be your last chance. Stop being upset Eddie bashed Mike again, just like *many* times before this....

    ___

    Eddie would love to make another Van Halen album, but that plan has obstructions. “It’s hard, because there are four people in this band, and three of us like rock’n’roll. And one of us likes dance music,” he says. “And that used to kind of work, but now Dave doesn’t want to come to the table.”
    ___


    Maybe they find a way and Dave comes to the table? Someone hack Dave's beatport account please, it's causing trouble.

    All this negativity will just push Eddie further away from doing anything for public consumption.

    He will continue to play & enjoy jamming with his son & brother, and we will get nothing.

    Why are we shooting ourselves in the foot?

    The end may very well be near with Dave out front, but i'm still onboard if Ed decides
    to do a trio or make a solo album.
    I love the man & his music, and we may not hear another peep from him post 2015.

    Have some respect for the guy that wrote all that music that enhanced your lives.

    He's going to be VH Salinger.

    Guess I was wrong about an upcoming sammy/mike reunion after this tour.

    I think the implication that DAVE of all people is holding up an album is laughable ... I mean, this is Dave we are talking about.

    However, I think Ed may not want to collaborate with Dave like they used to ... only with his brother and son and have just write the music. I have a feeling that Stay Frosty being a Dave song almost completely kind of irked Eddie a bit. Remember Dave saying he hasn't "written" a song with Eddie since 1984? That's where the rub may be happening. Dave wont collaborate unless it's a true collaboration.

    There's some hyperbole going on. But I guess it's to be expected because Ed classlessly reopened fans' old wounds regarding Mike, and some fans just wait for anything negative on that front to pounce on.

    It is just very sad to me that Ed and Al seem more content to just jam in 5150 and not share their gift with the rest of the world.

    I guarantee that if Eddie just gave free reign to Dave to pull riffs from the vault he could piece together something everyone would agree on

    I think that knowing that Ed is so bitter toward so many people, maybe even including the fans, my enjoyment of anything new that he might do, whoever with, will likely be tempered.

    I really did. I mean, I was basing it strictly on the fact that NOBODY laid eddie out quite as much as sammy did in his book, yet Eddie really didn't say much of anything that bad about Sammy. I REALLY thought he was purposely leaving one foot in the door for the future. Guess not.

    EVH has been the main purveyor of negativity for a solid 20 years. So to blame it on the fans is a bit of a stretch. Blaming it on people who have spent thousands of their hard earned cash to support him...

    I hailed EVH as the best and greatest when I thought he deserved those accolades. I've met him and told him as much. But when he's being a prick, I'm calling it out as I see it.

    Ed the musician is untouchable. We all agree there. Ed the person just can't seem to understand what he should and shouldn't say...still after all these years.

    I don't think people are going to get anymore closure that what we got already.

    They made one last album with Roth and toured... Yeah, Mikey wasn't there, but that was as good as it was ever going to get at this point.

    If this is how Ed feels, I wished they would have just said that ADKOT as closure for the band and leave it at that.

    It's obvious that Ed cares nothing about his band mates, the band or the fans. He is only doing this for his kid and the money.
    Michael Caine on Jaws: The Revenge:

    "I have never seen it, but by all accounts it is terrible. However, I have seen the house that it built and it is terrific."
