    Not sure if it's rumor or fact... move as appropariate... Pulled this off of VH groups on Yahoo... Interesting but opens up for more questions than answers...??

    Well...

    It's been over a year since I've been on a VH related list, and I swore I'd
    stay away until something relevant happened.

    We all now know about the band getting dropped and the new SH/MA/Slash
    thingie...

    Something you may not be aware of:

    Warner Brothers Records is no longer servicing radio stations with any VH
    catalog product. Any warehoused CDs are apparently off-limits. Which would lead
    us to believe that the band now owns it's catalog as a provision of its
    severance with WB.

    What this means is either; The VH CDs will all be re-released on the band's own
    label, possibly with bonus tracks (not unlike Iron Maiden did years ago when
    they got the rights to their Capitol library), or some third party label
    (Sanctuary, Spitfire etc) will purchase the rights the VH's catalog and
    re-release them. Again, with possible bonus materials included.

    And...Scotty Ross is gone too? Heard that yesterday. Probably old news though
    eh?

    In any event, VH are going to be on the shelf for a while, if not forever, and
    new material is most likely to come in the way of "remastered with bonus tracks
    re-releases".

    You know where to find me...

    pd...shut down
    mikey...playing with sam
    ed.....as paul marshall stated...bought back the rights to the vh music
    ed.... trademarking everything in sight
    dave....says reunion inevitable
    ed....says dave knows where he lives and doesn't know what goes on in other's realities

    Looks like Ed and Al are working out the business end of things right now, with the rights, and the legal stuff.
    Maybe good, maybe bad.
    But it looks like there's is no new, original VH music in sight for this year. Maybe unreleased material, but nothing really new...
    It's a good thing Mike keeps his hands occupied...

    Music directors work directely with the record labels to get product (music) to play.

    It's very common for Music directors for ask for back catalog stuff......maybe filling out their music library at the station.....doing a "Complete Library Giveaway".....or just asking for someone at the station who's trying to score a classic.

    I wouldn't place this in the "DJ Rumour file".....I'll call a buddy who's a music director.....and get the latest tomorrow.
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    There's no way we'regonna get a box set from the
    VH bros. I doubt Ed has changed his mind on the "nostalgia act." True they put out BOV1 and were working towards BOV2, but I just don't see it being anything that they may make into a song someday. (someday ) Besides, if it wasn't good enough in the form it was then, Ed surely isn't going to think it's good enough now. Not without some kinda changes (i.e. lyrics, music, vocals, etc.)

    The music BUSINESS is changing very quickly, big companies are not interested in their "catalog" groups because they won't sell as much as bandboys, internet and bootlegs are finishing the business.
    In my personal opinion what Ed and Al are doing is protecting their music, yesterday I read an interview from 1999 and Eddie said that the delay for a new VH album (Gary was still in the band, there was no cancer news) is "it's been like musical chairs over at Warner Bros.; it's like who's in charge?" so things are different in the music business, they are taking charge of their things, when they finish doing that, they'll hire a new Road Manager or maybe even Scotty and they'll be back, meanwhile why pay a person to be your road manager if your not on the road?
    They have a lot of work to do, when they are done, they'll produce new music.
    PEACE

    Oh, by the way Motley Crue did the same thing with their Motley/Beyond Records.
