    In case you haven't read this yet, you gotta:
    http://www.vhnd.com/articles/010131-01.shtml

    A little long, but definitely worth the look.

    Pretty well written and thought out if it's another hoax. A lot of it makes sense too: take it slow, don't spend too much time together, make sure everything's just right before making the big announcement.

    Whaddya think VH fans: On the level or is this guy the Devil?

    I agree J that it is pretty specific in alot of areas,definatly worth the read!I haven't posted in quite awhile because I thought we would've heard something by now.If this is true I find it a little unsettleling that it seems that they're not really together that much and seem to have some serious issues to work out,Dave on his own when/if they tour?But hopefully this is all just a BIG smokescreen and actually something will be announced soon.I recently called the inside mag to find out when the next issue is coming and they're pushing to March now.Obviously they're gonna time this in their favor as much as possible.Mikey did say some announcements soon and that is the only concrete stuff said by the band.My hopes still are that the album is done and they're waiting for the spring and kick this crazy fuckin' jugernaut off by summer.I can hope can't I? Later people

    Well... it's definitely a very well thought out rumor, to say the least.

    I'm not sure I'm convinced of any validity of it, but I guess late March and then June/July are the times to look for some proof of what they say.

    well, it's definitely well thought out and believeable, although i don't understand being transferred from LA to Portland.
    nevertheless, the letter makes a lot of sense and basically falls in line with what we know and what i've heard from WB.

    no one is going to say squat until VH is sure they can handle this...

    I am one who beleives until we hear something from VH (whoever that is these days) we take everything with a grain....

    But, I read all the rumours and the item I find interesting is that, according to this post, Dave turned them down initially. I have kinda' thought all along (IMO ONLY) that the whole DLR Band tour of 2000 was a warm up for a VH reunion, and he would JUMP (no pun intended) at the opportunity to join with VH again. I do realize though that the boys have issues to work out...and thats all fine and dandy...but I dont beleive DLR would turn down the chance to get back with them under the right circumstances.

    Does anyone concur that the writing style is curiously reminiscent of one Michael Jackson.

    If it's legit thanks for the info - the fans really do appreciate it.

    If it's B.S. that's okay too - I admire your imagination.

    Cheers.

    Sounds plausible, but frankly with all the rumors going around, I could make something like that up just as easily using all the info we've heard.

    I'm not saying that I don't believe this guy. At first I did but when I read the post a couple of more times I found some information that was contradicting. Here are the 2 statements.
    1st statement:
    "They spent the whole of May-Sept. working out issues amongst themselves. Only in the early part of Oct. 2000 did they completely agree to try and recapture the magic. There were some get-togethers during this period (I believe in July and August) where the whole band got together (and from my info, it was not at 5150, but possibly a soundstage on the Warner Bros. lot they had rented) and jammed."

    2nd statement:

    Edwards "Tounge Cancer" scare was not life threatening, but was more serious than has been reported. He is in fine health now, and his haircut is not the result of Chemotherapy or radiation treatements.

    OK guys/gals correct me if I'm wrong here but wasn't Edward's surgery sometime in May or June? As he stated above in statement #2: Edwards "Tounge Cancer" scare was not life threatening, but was more serious than has been reported.

    If that was the case I seriously doubt Edward was out jamming with Dave, Alex, & Mikey in July and August. Then again he could be the type of person that is not held back from an illness to do certain things for his career.

    Like I said I just don't know but this stuck out while I was reading this for a 3rd time.

    I am sure I will get a lot of different opinions on my claim. Whether they are good are bad I want to hear them.

    And there's only one David Lee. I'm the fun in Van Halen, always will be. - David Lee Roth

    When classic Van Halen is together it's like one person. When I say 'I' in this respect, I mean my whole cadre that I am part of. I'm the tear boss, and I'm a fuckin' lifer. - David Lee Roth

    It's definitely well-written and well thought out.

    If this dude is making it up, he's done his homework by using bits and pieces of various rumors and tying them together.

    The only problem I have with it is that I think it's TOO detailed.

    I mean, would anybody outside the band really know all these details? I find it hard to believe that the band supposedly is only half-finished with the album, yet they already know that Dave will "travel separately" initially on tour. I found it surprising that the guy knew the 4 or 5 mantras given to the band by their counselor. Again, would the band really share that kind of info with just anyone?

    I guess it COULD be legit. If it is, the dude sure has a better memory than I do. I don't think I'd be able to remember that much detail.

    It's funny. We bitch when an "insider" is too vague, then we pick them apart for being too detailed!

    If you read the second page of that initial post, you'll see that the guy gives out his full name.

    the whole band got together (and from my info, it was not at 5150, but possibly a soundstage on the Warner Bros. lot they had rented) and jammed.

    Wouldn't they have had a really hard time keeping this a secret? It seems like doing something outside of 5150 would be nearly impossible to hide.

    I enjoy the part when he indicates that VH contacted Sammy, and Sammy told them to stick you know where....That had to make him feel good!
