    SURPRISE SURPRISE SURPRISE


    M.A. admitted at that car show thingy that VH is on hiatus this summer.

    _____________________________________________

    How can one be on hiatus from doing nothing? Is it a vacation from a vacation?

    So we will be approaching the 4 year mark from the last release, nearing the RnR HOF eligibility time frame, and paying $4.00 a gallon for gas by the time we MIGHT hear a bit of good news from the band.

    No mentions of any boxed set, other remasters, any special releases to tide people over, no nothing. More national security bullshit. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    _____________________________________________

    He also added that the bass he auctioned off went for over $10,000. Yay. Wow. What exciting news.
    Don't bark at me...<b>I</b> didn't name ya.

    What article did this come from? As much as I like Mike, they've been in hiatus since Gary left. I think he's been sniffing too many mufflers. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    Yep Abe, it's spectacluar news what we heard from MA. The Dutch VH website also had heard news from MA, here it comes with special thanks to Corleen :June 16, 2001
    Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony has given us, Van Halen fans, some very encouraging news about Edward Van Halen and his health.

    Speaking at the celebrity Cars & Stars Gala at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles Thursday (June 14), Michael told LAUNCH that the guitarist is coming along fine in his battle with cancer.

    "Ed's doing great. The cancer, the tongue thing, stems from a little problem that he had over a year ago," Anthony said. "He was pretty much over it and had it all licked, and then he decided to put something on our
    website to let people know what he had been going through -- because everybody wanted to know -- and we kind of kept it quiet when it was happening. He's doing great, and we're ready to rock. He's got a new hip. He's like The Six Million Dollar Man -- he's better than before."

    Well it's seems like old news to me Abe. Better keep our eyes and ears open before we all start to miss something [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    More strange comments from Mike ? Curious they are taking a hiatus and they are ready to rock ?

    I just dont think the boys know what they want to do.

    I am glad to hear that Ed is doing well. I still beleive this (Ed's and or Alex) is the hold up.

    WTF? Mike said last January that they're going to be making some announcements "very soon." Now he says they're on a hiatus. I'm getting so tired of this shit. [img]smilies/mad.gif[/img]

    Shit, Mike made up that shit about rocking soon and tour plans just so someone would talk to him at NAMM adn sell guitars. Fuckin Weasel!! All of them are full of SHIT. I agree with Rick, if you ain't doing shit then you are broken up, whether you realize it or not.

    Wombat, I understand your frustration, but calling Mike a "fuckin weasel" is pretty unnecessary...He wasn't just selling guitars at NAMM...He tried to talk and has clearly been told to chill...Not what I'd call a weasel by any stretch...

    just my opinion thats all........look at it this way what does the general music public think? they would say "oh yeah vh s broke up right?" no lead singer or plans of finding a lead singer or making music is broken up to me that s all...i think mikes trying to be a good diplomat here and skirt the issue....imagine the upheivil at the pd if mike said "we ve broken up for now who knows about the future". im not all furious about it i was mad at first it but got over it quick [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] if someone asks me i say "yeah they ve broken up " ..what am i gonna say "they re on hiatus kinda with no singer" someone would say "you mean they broke up?".....the boys dont have time to play with and getting a fourth singer is just not gonna do it...i dont see it winding up the boys at 50 touring with a 4th singer(although id go anyway [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img])but it would look bad. im not starting a flame war here its just my opinion thats all but im defenitly not one of the guys at the pd sayin "daves still back you ll see its gonna happen soon " and im not bringin eddies health into this but mike said "edwards just fine" didnt he?
