    New posting to the VHND site today from an interview Zappa gave a St.Louis radio station. He indicated that the band is currently in counseling to keep the amicable juices flowing. You have to be Sh**ing me, I can't stop laughing at the thought of these 4 bozo's sitting on a couch together to keep them from killing each other. Sammy has to be laughing his ass off at this one. Personally any band that has to go through counseling to make it work really should stop trying at the prospects of working at all. As some things just don't work period, meaning there is a reason that Dave and the rest spilt in 85', they were not meant to be together.

    I want to know more about this 'counseling', as what form of counseling is this? Anyway, if this is what it takes to finally get a new album in the Fall/Winter, god bless them and their efforts. But we have to admit the thought of this is really amusing.

    Obviously, if this is true, then the band is truly doing one just for the fans.

    It also reminds me of an old Al Bundy saying...went something like this:

    'Remember in the old days of cartoons, where cats bashed mice over the head with sledge hammers? Now they sit down together and TALK about their problems!' (or something to that effect)

    Kinda brings to mind the guy with the hammer from the 1984 tour---hmmm...interesting foreshadowing maybe?

    When you tour for any time, you lose sleep, move from place to place constantly, etc.. You've got 4 diff. personalities, except for Dave who has 3 or 4 personalities himself..lol
    Pressures increase, and if they need some counselling to make sure things go smoothly for all of them I'm all for it. Who wants them crashing in the middle of a tour. It could be your city who's gig gets cancelled cause they can't handle being around each other anymore. They're probably all great guys one on one, but put them together for any length of time and the fireworks start.
    I'm for whatever they think they need to keep performing as a tight unit.

    i doubt its a psychiatrist...more likely a manager or such so the band members can make comprimises and stuff, maybe a moderator or something?

    I'm sure Van Halen isn't the only band that's gone to counseling. Anyway, so what. They are adults and they've had problems/differences before. If this helps them become trustworthy friends again, let'em do it. Remember, they're just 'humans being'.

    May the Phoenix that is Van Halen rise again!

    although i don't subscribe to the "DAVE OR GRAVE" theory i think that whatever they have to do to stay together is fine with me.

    i don't think too many people would be happy if they decide to go without DAVE after two years of silence.

    no disrespect to DWEEZIL but i take what M.A. said to have more credibility.

    why is DWEEZIL trying to rain on our parade(unless he is producing the new record).

    i am not goin get my hopes up until i get the new record in my hands.

    Great points, I thinkther is a lot of us who don't want them to "fake it" just to say goodbye to the fans and make some money along the way.

    Might be financial councelling!

    Finance guy: So what ya gonna do with all this money??

    Ed:Im gonna put some money aside for wolfies education, and extend the studio a little. Might add a 'time out cage' to house singers. and a gimp closet to stash a SPARE singer

    Al: Uh. I always wanted a pair of REALLY dark sunglasses ya know?

    Mike: Im gonna buy the BIGGEST bottle of chilli sauce in the world. And I'm gonna SWIM in that thing till my asshole implodes!

    Dave: I'm considering a spread of investments, across several sectors. You know, property, overseas and local stocks. Spread the risks while maintaining a decent return. Oh yeh. And Im gonna get some drugs and chicks and live in a cave for a year in the andes!

    gotta learn to co-exist somehow. Lots of married couples do it. Not much dif with a band. You get alot more give and take I would think in therapy. Be more open to listening to each other rather than bullheaded like Al, Ed, and Dave are.

    ------------------
    Some eras may be better than others, but VH is VH to me!

    If they are indeed in counseling, its probably because of Eddie most likely quit smoking with the cancer scare and had been an asshole to everyone and put on weight ala Sammy.LOL

    ENOUGH IS ENOUGH EDDIE, ALEX, MIKE & DAVE.

    That doesn't make sense...so we weren't meant to have all this brilliant albums??

    However, Dweezil is clearly trying to fool us.. If he is a close friend of Eddie, he wouldn't all of the sudden reveal all the plans..
    so this is how it went:
    A couple of weeks ago,Eddie and Dweezil were having a beer together, and Ed Says:
    'Fucking hell Dweezil, the fans know it's going to be soon..this will ruin the whole surprise effect!!' so Dweezil goes:'No worries Ed, I will leak some misleading info to the press, and tell them they have to wait another 9 months' Ed: 'Thats a good one mate! the fans will be very surpired when we release the album on the 1st of March!'

    anyway, the Van Halen members are reading the forums and are laughing their arses off..
