    After reading a recent post by hain23x, I visited ye old slawterhouse site and saw a pop-up ad for what appears to be an upcoming book on DLR. While nowhere in the ad does it state that the book is about Dave, it's pretty clear to anyone who's been following the DLR/VH saga that Dave is the subject. Here's the ad and my humble analysis of what the not so subtle headlines may imply:

    Myself, I think we are entering "the Sting" phase that "a fan's" post referred to. In real life, the enquirer is a trash rag, so I think if it's on, we are to see the connection between the email Hain referred to, as well as other rumors we've heard about Dave and how they do relate as you say to this slawterhouse.com enquirer book cover. The smoke is clearing and the sting is in full operation.

    Call me crazy, but I always go back to Dave's book and the we ain't sayin' shit part, and they have played that part of the script to a T. To me, it would make all the wait worth while if they went to trouble to wrangle all of this out, in a sick demented Seinfeld on acid kind of way.
    It takes no more energy to look at it from my point of view, it allows me to keep hope of a reunion, and it would mean not only a return of the original Van Halen, but the spirit of the whole prank would wreak of the the old school attitude. Kind of funny how we didn't get any news for a while, then we hear Dave is splitting with the Keepers, and wham bam, there's Dave mentioned in the news services, yeah for being sued, but as he always said, there's no such thing as bad publicity. Then we get some pics of Mike Anthony at NAMM, and what the fuck is he doing, he is giving the middle finger, and well, hey what's the word over at Slawterhouse, the return of the middle finger.

    Sorry to go all Barnaby Jones on you cats, but I know if these guys have made up and are getting along, and I feel things can work out, especially when you add a very life changing and threatening
    illness to the equation, they may very well be having a little fun at our expense. I know 100% damn sure if computer website technology had existed in the early days of VH, they would have fucked with us all the time with shit like what I'm saying is possible. If I'm out of mind, say so, and don't hold back, I welcome the abuse, because if my theory were to come true, it would be the sweetest consolation.

    I'm just skeptical that TK would know what's going on now. They were clueless about 75% of the time when they WERE the webmasters (and ignored their own site about as much too)

    Anybody remember their blanket denials that Lowery was jumping ship to go with the no talent wonder??

    FORD, I've only had one dealing with the keepers and outright lied to me in an email telling me Dave was leaving town right after his KC show and there was not going to be a club Dave that night, and it was bullshit, they were totally out of the loop. Also, you know more of their web history than I could even read about and take in, so I understand what you are saying. Then again, and this would have required a hell of a lot of forethought, but what if making them look inept and as if they had fallen out of favor with DLR was all part of the ruse. It's never been beyond question for Dave to spend his own money on anything he thought was worth while and he was getting a kick out of. I imagine an internet wide practical joke on the fans, leading to what we and Dave have dreamed for years, would be something that he would kick a little cash into. You know as well as I do, if by some crazy stroke of luck, I'm close to right, that it would be a full return of the Mighty Van Halen, not just the music, but the fun and everything else that went with it. Everyone wants to jump ship over this keepers biz, while I choose to roll down the road with "a fan's" somewhat dated post, that has had as much stuff come to fruition as this keeper's post has. Remember that post is almost 2 years old, and it alluded to the WB situation being the key. I know everyone thinks I'm crazy, but I just want it to happen, and will maintain it can until they tear down my sails.

    Warhead - I've gotta admire your optimism. I wish I still had some. Unfortunately I don't think the present convoluted PR nightmare that VH and DLR have created for themselves constitues any sort of "practical joke" or "smokescreen". A joke, certainly. But not intentional.

    Even when dealing with these guys, you've gotta apply Occam's Razor to this situation and assume that the simplest explanation is the correct one. The truth, my long-suffering friends, is that while Dave may have joined Eddie on the kookoo express to Loopy Town, he's not gonna be joining him in the studio or on stage any time soon.

    I see dead careers. I am very sad.

    Wolfman, I appreciate having a fellow poster who doesn't mind an occasional dish of crow. The main reason I am holding onto hope Lance is because of what Mike said to Rols and FullbugAZ. So what if I read to much into every little thing, and make shit connect that probably has no connection at all. That's what happens when you start each and every day with a round of fucking Matlock! All I can say, is I will come in a fine mist if this whacked out scenario of mine is even close.

    I prefer to think each of us has what it takes to get our shit together. Do I think Dave has taken a vicodin, hell yeah. I take em too when my back is kickin my ass. Do I think he's a washed up rock and roller who has kicked a crew that looked to be a pretty well oiled machine to the curb all for the sake of a busboy who can get him pills that Dave would have no trouble getting. Hell, no!
    Yeah, he's a crazy mother fucker, and let me tell everyone, not a one of us would have ever posted here if he weren't a part of all in the beginning
    because these sites wouldn't exist, the same as VH would not, at least as we know it
    But believe it or not, I saw him for just a few minutes, and for at least part of that time, he was Dave Roth, a tired guy wanting to catch his plane, who took time to sign some autographs for me and a couple of other fans. He didn't have it turned on,just as normal as any of us on our best day. But as soon as he walked out the front door of the hotel, he turned it right on when he got in the van with the band. I think he's got at least one more round left in the chamber.

    I think its kinda funny the progression at slawterhouse - starting as a fansite/1996/pro roth protest site.. progressed to official site... dumped as official site...seems to be morphing into some kinda anti-roth protest site..

    Click here to read about vicodin

    There was a rumor(or maybe true) that Dave had back surgery awhile back--sometime in the last two years, and if this was INDEED true then the vicodin could have been used to relieve the pain. Or he could have just been taking them to get off on it! who knows? but vicodin IS addictive and one of the side effects, according the posted article, is mental clouding and decreased mental and physical ability.

    Hmm, maybe that is EXACTLY what the new video is supposed to prove. That DLR is in great shape physically AND mentally and that TK are two losers who wouldn't know their asses from a hole in the ground. Martial Artists are usually VERY clear minded and have fantastic mental ability.
    ExpandedConsciousness:

    WOW!!! HOLYFUCKINGFUCK!!! What kind of Twilight Zone am I living in? What kind of Viagra-Testosterone mix are these 50 year old + guys on? I never thought I'd hear another Dave and Eddie album again. If I did, I thought it would be a mid-paced affair like the Rolling Stones or later day AC/DC. After the TATTOO single I was ready for a poppy album from old guys, with a few nods to harder rock (She's A Woman and Bullethead) and I would have been happy with that.

    I NEVER THOUGHT I'D BE GETTING A FULL-THROTTLE HARD ROCK, HEAVY METAL, BALLS TO THE WALL, FUCKING VAN HALEN THRASH METAL ALBUM!!!

    YEP!

    Dave had back surgery...Without a doubt.

    As far as if he was taking Vicodin...well...that might explain a few things...

    One thing is for sure though... The Keepers wouldn't know shit if they stepped in it!
    "Keep honking buddy. I'm reloading..." -The Mard

    "......HEY!.............alright............." -BIG FOOT

    " I know what you're thinking: "Do I want to watch Mard? We know that horses were very strong and could actually stop airplanes from flying away. The ones made out of stone called "statues" -- occasionally came to life and rode off is a colonial cliche. How many more times do we need to hear about how the oppressive Raj's wore villainous black capes, crafted cunning plastic masks to impersonate people, and drained all the blood from their slaves so they could keep the fluid in bottles in their dungeons? I mean, YAWN!

    But if you're willing to sit through this dry sort of historical drama one more time -- or even just this dry historical review -- you will not be disappointed. In fact, some of you might just learn something they didn't teach you in school!-

    Ford they were never clueless, anyone who says this is simply ignorant. They always knew what was going on, and stuck to the 'company line'. Just because you didn't get to hear what you wanted is no fucking excuse....

    How hard is it for you and others to understand that they could only say what they are allowed, and that while one day something may be true the next it may not be.....

    Sorry if this sounds like a slam, its not, but come on now they corrected the Lowery story the NEXT DAY.

    I understand everyone's optimism, but why would WB want to split from VH if Dave was in the picture?
