    Your talking about a band who shut down the forum on their own web site . They don't care what we think even though we are the diehards who love and support this band since 1978. Its too late to rectify most of the shit that has happened since 1995 anyway.

    A broad "thank you" to everyone for their participation on this thread.

    I guess that my optimism was baseless; my imagination got the best of me.

    Again, I am not faulting anyone, but it seems to me that if the band checked in on the board from time to time, and saw everyone's comments, it could well explain why they haven't ventured out.
    LOL, you're presuming we were ever given the option to review alternatives. As if.

    Dude...you are attributing way too much to the significance of being a VH fan lol. Fans are not a litmus test for the band, never have been. If they were, VH3 and '98 never would've happened.

    The rumor of the VH trio was fan musing only, always was.

    You put too much stock into what is said around here lol. You'd be wise to take it all with heaping grains of salt. It's the internet, man. Presume 99.9% of it is horseshit.

    I think Dave is the reason why the band rarely does anything, I just don't think Ed and Al can tolerate him but just use him when they feel like actually doing some shows just to play. Take Queen, they bring in Adam Lambert to sing and tour just about every summer. I would welcome a scenario of VH doing something similar with a good singer (maybe Gary or Mitch) and occasionally putting out a song or two whether as singles or for movie soundtracks.

    Default To What Extent Does VHLinks Have Upon The Band's Actions?

    Is there a number lower than zero?

    If there is it’s that number.

    You are out of your mind. Ed has released one album, ONE, in the last 21 years. He could have Sam, Dave, a 22 year old Robert Plant, or Lucifer himself on the mic and he ain't doing shit besides tinkering in his garage and warming up the hits every few years for the "replenish the bank account" tour.

    I bet Lucifer himself would kill it on Runnin' With The Devil.

    Here's another great example of VH not giving a fuck about its fanbase.

    Why not offer something for Record Store Day?

    So many artists, even dead ones' legacy companies, offer one-offs for RSD each year. Prince, the Doors, Rush, the Police, you name it. Easy thing to do, requires no effort from the band itself, minimal expenses, and gives the diehards a little somethin somethin to collect or perhaps even listen to, a rare unreleased B side, a live recording 7" EP, whatever.

    Nope. Can't be bothered.
