    Well, it's a wee bit premature but I think it's safe to say it's been over a year sence we heard Jack Squat what's going on at camp Van Halen. I don't think we'll be hearing anything, anytime soon. The last thing we heard was Gary left. That announcement came right about the time I registered. Prior to that, all we were getting, for the most part was, the band is working on new material and it's their "best ever!"...Must not have been..

    It's been over 4 years sence Sammy was shit-canned.
    It's been over 4 years sence the (now affectionately called) '96 Fiasco.
    It's been over 2 years sence we've had anything new.
    It's been over 2 years sence they've toured.

    I think my patience has worn thin.

    I've decided to make my personal aniversary, here at good ole VHLinks, Nov. 16, Van Halen's deadline.

    I need some news.

    I'm sick of the silence. I'm sick of rumors.
    I need something solid. Trust me. If Dave is back, and they decide to kick him out, I can handle it. I know we all can. We might be pissed, but we'll get over it.

    There's nothing to gain by alienating your fans. Do they owe us anything? No. But deafining silence is downright mean. For a band that has always included their fans, in every aspect of their careers, complete shutout is more than I can bare!

    I'm begining to lose interest. I'm starting to not care anymore. I'm starting to get resentful. Almost to the point that when they finally release something, I'll take the attitude "Fuck 'em. They can shove that new cd up their ass."

    So, I'm just about ready to move on. Sammy's new cd is almost here. New tour. New updates. Think I'll indulge in that.

    I'm a huge Beatle fan. Think I'll start checking into BeatleLinks...

    There's alot more going on than "No News, is Good news"...

    I hear ya MARD. I'm starting to just not give a shit anymore too. I used to check on VHLinks and MTV every day, first thing in the morning, waiting for an announcement. Now it's oh well, they ain't gonna say anything, anyways. Of course I'll still buy the new CD, the remasters, and see them on tour a couple times, but it's really getting old guys. They should've made an announcement by this summer, at least.

    You know, I'm about to that point myself, as far as the losing interest goes. I'm finding myself not checking in for days at a time where I used to check every hour or so. The rumor mill is just about empty and I don't forsee anything happening anytime soon. I really don't like the Sammy quote and will be extremely pissed if it were to be true. I think Dave is okay solo, but far more superior with Van Halen. So....I ain't going anywhere unless they tell me that Dave's gone. I'm just sitting put for now, nothing more to discuss. No news sucks fucking ass.

    Ditto that Mard! I find myself visiting this board and VHND less and less. Until some official announcement is made, I'll probably not be posting much here (Looking at my number of posts, I really haven't posted all that much compare to some). If and when an announcement is made, I hope I'm more excited than I am right now. Let's hope for the best.

    wow, i can't believe it, people out there that feel the same way i do... it's like this, i used to come in here like everyday, about 10-15 times a day... no doubt... but after a while, you start to realize that it's a waste of time... all that time devoted to coming in here can definately be devoted to doing something more constructive... and WHEN van halen announces something, we'll find out, for crying outloud... what good is it gonna do to be the FIRST one to find out, and first one to go in there and give your 2 cents worth... i mean, i'm not on an anti-links campaign, but i mean, it's a waste of time to live your life in here... if you have www.vhnd.com as your home page (which a lot of us probably do), you'll see it everytime you get online... and you'll find out when the news hits... just my HO though...

    I am speaking only of myself.

    However, if and when Dave comes out and says I've been kicked out, again, blah, blah,blah.
    What are you gonna do? Kill yourself? Throw all your VH cd away? Turn the station when VH comes on? No. Life will go on.

    Besides, as long as they're alive a reunion is possible.

    I'm just sick of waiting for it. Hell, give me the new songs they did with Gary. Anything!

    What would it hurt if someone from the VH camp said. "I've talked to Alex the other day. They're not sure if this reunion will work." Or "Ed's taking some time off for awhile." or whatever!

    We don't HAVE to hear from the band themselves per se, but ANYBODY!
    Christ! Even their website silent!

    I'm just about sick of it. That's all...

    i know how you all feel.
    i'm just as passionate about the band as eddie himself (well, almost.)
    i agree it would be nice if they would let us know what the F is going on, but their silence can only mean one of two things:
    1. they can't say anything
    2. they won't say anything

    mix these scenarios with the all the legal bullshit they are dealing with AND the health issues (which everyone selfishly forgets) and it seems to me that there HAS TO BE some logical reason(s)why VH is silent.

    i, for one, trust they are doing the right thing - perhaps for reasons we don't understand or will never know. it's not our band, and not our lives.

    and when the album comes out, all of this waiting will be forgotten in an instant.
    everyone (MTV, radio) will be kissing their asses once again, and we'll just be regular fans like years ago - only we won't be considered crazy for being obsessed.

    Ever the disgusting optimist, I have this to say:

    Well damnit, we're 323 days closer to the announcement than we were on 11/16/99!

    THE MARD and I both registered on the Links the same day. I'd love to see an announcement by November 16, but I wouldn't put that as a deadline because I honestly don't believe they'll announce by then. Hang in there MARD.

    i just meant MARD that if they do the "dave is in, dave is out" thing again then i'd be ticked. i'd still buy and go see whatever they put out, i always will. but ti'll agree, this silence stuff is rotten

    Ya know what I think !
    I think that Van Halen is the first band in the History of music that don't give news to the fans for a year !
    I mailed Brad several times and he never reply me ! ( maybe he don't understand my English ! ) !
    It's strange ... too strange , maybe Eddie healt is not good for real ! If so , we wanna know about him too ! Then , ok ... every one will got his privacy ! I understand healt things !

    But if not ... why they don't say anything to the fans ... I understand contracts problems , new singers , the 1996 fiasco , all that I can immagine !
    But now please stop ! ... We are fan ... and as fans we gotta know !
    One year with no news , no words ... Brad don't speak !
    Please .. we wanna know what's happening !

    I can only understand healts problems for someone in the band ,,, but now , not teh rest ! ...
    If they are tired of playing , just let us know !
    But if not ... remember about the fans please !
