    If I recall correctly, that email that we received a few months back said it would come in December or January. I guess that's one month down and one to go.

    Frankly, I have no confidence we'll be seeing this thing on time. July 2000 was the last time we received an issue. Sadly, I've run out of ways to make fun of the fact that they still advertise themselves as being a quarterly publication. [img]redface.gif[/img]

    If you've paid in advance for 4 quarterly magazines and the INSIDE hasn't held up their end of the contract, can't you contact the BBB?

    Really strange that an organized publication like THE INSIDE (or what was once an organized publication) would act like this. They didn't ever let their subscribers know. I remember calling them and giving them my change of address in January when I moved and asking them to call or e-mail me to confirm. No such luck. Then I received nothing. I called them again and told them that I'm worried they sent the new issue to my old address. Finally, after three tries, they let me know that it was a double-issue coming soon. This was a few months ago. Then I heard about the December/January thing. Here! Fine, after all that work, I finally hear why I haven't received anything. What about all the other customers who didn't do all that? I wonder how much repeat business they're going to attract after all this?

    The only way it would be worth the wait for me is if the band has a reunion album/tour press conference at the end of January and a few days later I receive a double-issue with all four original members talking about the reunion and a big cover of Dave doing his air-splits...the cover proclaiming, "They're back!!!"

    Ah, yes. Dreams.

    I thought things would get better for the INSIDE, after they announced they were not the OFFICIAL magazine for Van Halen anymore.

    I dont subscribe anymore, but will if they ever get their shit togethor.

    Another part of the mystery is this magazine. I think VH wants them to be the official mag, but cant give them any info. yet. (IMO)

    The Inside did really play up the advantages to not being official when they went unofficial...

    I understand they don't want extra costs, but a POSTCARD UPDATE to those of us who PAID FOR THE MAG ALREADY seems like a reasonable expense... [img]graemlins/irked.gif[/img]

    Just found that old email from the Inside. Here it is with the important part in BOLD.

    "The next issue of ''The Inside'' Van Halen magazine will be a double issue,
    #17/18, combined. The entire issue will focus on the 1979 and 1980 Van
    Halen World Tours. It is undoubtedly one of our best issues! The double
    issue will be mailed to all subscribers in late December and will arrive in
    early January.
    Thanks for your patience!"

    The clock is ticking!!!!!!!!!

    Not to piss in anybody's Wheaties but...

    Unless the publishers of the Inside are underwritten (funded) either through advertising or an interested party... it's highly doubtful that the subscription revenue would sustain production. Think about it....

    If they are no longer "official" then Van Halen Inc, LTD or whatever isn't kicking in money. If Inside isn't publishing what company in their right mind would pay for advertising...???

    So with what money would they be publishing this non-existent magazine??

    I hate to say it but those of you who have paid a subscription most likely are not going to see any product. If these folks are still selling subscriptions then they are potentially engaging in fraud depending on their intentions to deliver... and with nothing out in a year and half... I would think it pretty slim your subscription money is being held to cover production costs...
