    From what is being heard on the street, it seems like it is going to be a while before an album is released and a subsequent tour. Also, no time frame on when an announcement will even be made, though we are pretty sure what the announcement will be. In the meantime why wouldn't WB want to release a single from the upcoming project to tide the fans over, it also can garner what quick feedback from the fans on what and how they feel about Roth's return. Plus it would be a quick money maker.

    I wonder if this has been thought of. I seem to recall that "Pretty Women" was released as a single before Diver Down came out in 82' to tide the fans over before the new album. I would think if they really cared about the fans as they say they do, this would be a great way of showing it.

    Well, I think it would be great of course, but I doubt it would happen. They are expecting to have sales ride the wave of a single. Releasing a single early would kind of be like premature ejaculation for sales. I think they are well aware of what folks think about DLR being back anyways. Doubt if they really are all that curious about that. And I dont think they are looking for a quick money maker with any of this. One big whopping kahuna is what they will be after.

    I would love it, but I dont think it would be the best thing for them right now. Shock the industry with everything when its all in place and ready to go, then let each piece fall into play according to some big master plan. Nothin half ass this time. Planning planning ,planning.

    Has anybody seen what Aeroshit is doing? They are releasing all these singles for their sub-par pussy song "Jizzed" or whatever it's called. There's like a Best Buy edition, a five song one and these other ones. Talk about greed. That's something N Sync would do! Yes, good old Aerosmith, fifty-year old Backstreet Boys with guitars. Please Van Halen, NEVER do that!!!! It looks stupid and greedy.

    Putting out a single right now or in the near future probably won't sell very well.
    Sure it will get plenty of radio play, but with sites like Napster, (which I love btw) sales won't be all that high.
    Just look at the average cd single sale reprots over last year, even though they are trying to blame it all on Napster, when there really wasn't alot of good music last year.
    But I am in favor of this, but it most likely won't.
    But who knows?
    Maybe we will hear a song for an upcoming major movie before we get the new album?
    That seems more likely.

    I would love to hear a single, but at this point I want a whole album...VH will make it worth the considerable wait and that's what I'd just as soon do...

    Why ruin the surprise?

    I want a whole album. Not just one or two songs for six months, then the full album.
