    Hi folks,
    Just want to say something...as far as what I have heard, there will be nothing profound announced by Sammy in the coming days.

    I hope I am wrong, but I have not heard one ounce of any possible VH action.

    My sources are expecting (for whatever it's worth) another long and blank year of VH inactivity.

    The only thing I have heard Sammy is working on, that could be part of an announcemnt, is Planet Us (and apparently less enthusiastic about that after Sony lost interest), and a new 6-week summer tour schedule.

    Hope this helps...

    Best regards,
    Andrew.

    As long as his announcement doesn't involve Van Halen it's fine with me!

    Andrew,

    What do your "sources" think is going on? Ed came out in May and intimated that we would hear from them. Yet, there seemingly is nothing going on. Is it a case of they tried with Dave and it didn't work out and don't want Sam so don't know what the heck to do next?

    Any clues as to what is going on?

    I really hope that the band lets us know something soon, I agree with all that it has been a long time coming. Im sure the reasons will all make sense when it does happen.

    Interesting.

    Hope it's Planet Us. I'm jacked to hear the sound of that band.
    Q: Recording the album took so long your Australian tour last year was cancelled. What was it like in the studio? There's a history of tension between you and Eddie Van Halen...

    Yeah. I have to admit that I am.

    I've always been a Schon fan, especially with his days in Santana & the early pre-Perry Journey. His latest stuff sounds like he's got more of an edge now & I think that Mike Anthony can bring a little more of that out of him since he's been more entrenched in the hard rock than Schon.
    Hagar's a good singer, and HSAS' Through the Fire had some great stuff on it. I'm sure they'll all gel when it comes to the vocals.

    I think it's the nature of the beast now. A lot of the musicians from bands that have been around awhile & have had pieces of them split apart, a la Soundgarden/RATM, are coming up with some good stuff. It's cool to see how some of these guys are meshing with one another. Makes for some interesting tuneage.

    I really doubt that Sammys' big announcement is VH related at all.

    Sam is still waiting on an apology .... [img]tongue.gif[/img]

    Andrew, you mean that there will be no VH whatsoever this year, as well as Planet US not even being signed and releasing their disc?

    You not only killed the day, but the whole month...

    What have we fans done to deserve this... I bought VHIII !

    Hi folks,
    Just heard (in confidence) what the Sammy announcement is.
    It is on NO WAY related to VH...just Sammy himself as a solo artist. That's all I can say.

    No Planet Us updates - I think they are just working on the album casually over the next month and seeing how it shapes up...
    And no, there is no label lined up for the album at this point.

    Best regards,
    Andrew.
