    So what DLR has a receding hairline. He isn't the same person from 18 years ago. Is Sammy the same person from 6 years ago? I'm sure he's gained a few pounds and downed plenty of tequila.

    Hasn't Edward lived the last 18 years or is he preserved or something? Imagine how many cigs he's smoked since then and how much alchol (sp?) he's consumed.

    Nobody is the same, everyone changes. If Classic VH reunites it would be awesome. [img]graemlins/bounce.gif[/img] If they reunite with Sam I'm sure they would be a very good band. My point is time takes it toll on everyone. It'll never be the same for VH.

    Would Gretzky be the same if he returned to the NHL? I doubt he could score 20 goals. But, he would still be incredible to watch.

    Sorry, for the rant. I would just like to purchase the fountain of youth stuff that you guys have.

    This is good point that many seem to forget. If this thing was to happen I hope people aren't expecting it to be just like they were in 1984 or 1996 in sammy's case. This is why I don't know why Dave insist on doing this 80's retro thing, hair, clothes & all. If these guys get back together they need to reinvent themselves. Sure. they can have some elements of the past, but generally speaking I'd like to see a progression (not as in progressive rock) but Van Halen rock 'n roll with a new millenium twist. Dave's an intelligent guy, I'm sure he can write clever contemporary lyrics that have nothing to do with partying, cars & chicks.

    Your post doesn't make sense to me. You can't compare a musician to an athlete. Every athlete knows that they probably can't compete at a high level when they are in their forties or fifties. They usually peak in their twenties or early thirties.

    Musicians are a different story though. Musicians like artists get better with age! Eddie Van Halen will still be an incredible guitar player when he is 60!
    </font>[/QUOTE]Yes YR! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] EVH is and always will be an incredible guitar player. I never said that he wouldn't be. My point in a nutshell is that the members of VH are getting older everday, just like us. Let's not worry about Roth's receding hairline. Let's not woory about Sammy's weight. I hear people mention how they think if Roth comes back it will be 1984 all over again. Wrong! 1984 is gone. Accept these men for how they are now [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Would Van Halen be the same if they reunited with Dave or Sammy? No, of course not. So why expose this fact? What happened when Micheal Jordan came back? Not a damn thing. He used to be a human scoring machine. Now he's just a regular old player. Same thing would happen to Wayne Gretzky. Ever heard of aging gracefully? Stopping while you're ahead? Leaving at the top?If the old lineup got back together, Dave (or Sammy) would try to make it some flashback to 1982 (or 1995) or something. And it would suck. It took major balls to do what Eddie did in 1998. Sure, he could've got Roth back and raked in the cash. He'd rather bomb doing what he believed in instead of making an ass out of himself with Dave by not having his heart in it. I really hate Roth and Sammy. For the record, I didn't think VH3 was nearly as bad as everyone says.

    Do I think Eddie is some old geezer that should give up? Hell no! Did Clapton quit in his 50s? Nope, he's 57 and doing just fine. But Eddie's party days with Roth and Sammy are over. I think Eddie should do his own thing without Dave and Sammy. He is more talented than those two clowns combined. I want to hear him play without those idiots screaming on top of it.
