    no offense, but i could give a shit less about what val says. if ed is sick and not doing well, why would he want everyone to know about it? he's not gonna come out and say hey everybody, things are on hold while i battle this cancer.

    if he's truly healthy, then why no label, bass player, tour manager, manager, or lead singer? and...why no statement from the band? if things were cool, why not just say, hey look...we're on hold right now and we're gong over a bunch of different options??

    They'll do something when they are ready, not when we want them to. If there's one thing that we know about VH it is that they do things on their own schedule and nobody else's! Cancer is a fucker and even if Eddie has won his battle and is cancer free he may still be very weak from the treatment. Hopefully this is the case and he's just chilling out while he regains his strength. Nothing is more important than Ed's health in this whole situation. As long as he's ok that's what really matters. Fuck the reunion, can you imagine how you'd feel if he died?!?!? I don't want to think about that happening! Take your time Ed, we love you and respect the fact that you are dealing with some heavy shit. I want a new album as much as anybody, but nothing can happen if Eddie isn't around! Let's remember the big picture folks!!!! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Great to see that VH still demands a lot of attention on other bands message boards! Goes to show how important they still are and what a reunion would mean, not just to us diehards!!! Let's go Van Halen!!!!

    Is everyone on rocks or what? When we first heard that Ed had cancer and saw the pix, he really looked sick, spirited, but sick. In recent pictures, he looks completely healthy.

    Although the following quotes are conflicting, and by that I mean that if Ed and Dave got together in September of 2000, Dave knew Ed had cancer then. However, in April of 2001, Dave is quoted as saying that he was stunned to hear that Ed had cancer. Miscommunication? Maybe, but truth in the quotes is that Ed has had cancer since at least September of 2000, meaning that he has been fighting it for at least 2 years. Look at this picture from December 2001 (http://www.styxworld.com/mediapic.cfm?pictureid=1941) and tell me that Ed doesn't look healthy. Look at the pictures from Golf Digest Magazine and you will see a sickly man.

    "I was stunned this morning to learn Eddie Van Halen has cancer. My condolences. You can whip this, champ. See ya down the road."

    -David Lee Roth
    April 2001

    But in another quote in July of that same year, "The last time I spoke to or saw Dave was back in September of last year [2000]. I played him a few new tunes, we bullshitted a bit, had some laughs, and everything seemed cool. He was even kind enough to turn me onto his uncle, Jack Roth, a cancer surgeon and research specialist at..."

    -Edward Van Halen
    July 2001

    I believe that Ed is healthy and has beat cancer. It has been a LEAST 2 years since cancer and he looks stonger and more healthy every time I see him in a picture. I think that VH, as a group, is a completely different story. There are some internal issues going on with them. Maybe communication, maybe irritation or maybe 20+ years has taken its toll, but something inside the band is not working. What is a little concerning to me is that Mike is off working with another band, especially that this band is headed by Sammy. I don't know about you, but for me, it would be like my wife going to hang out with her old boyfriend. Ed and Al can't be too happy about that.

    I remember when Dave, Sammy and Gary left the band that there was denial by VH that their lead singer was leaving/fired. Here we are again, Mike is saying that he is not leaving, but I smell the smelly smell...

    A person's health is not a black/white, yes/no, on/off type of thing. Ed could be taking the necessary time to fully recover, even if he is "cancer-free".

    You can't say, "Ah ha! Val says Ed doesn't have cancer, so there's NO EXCUSE for him not to put out a record and go tour." But that seems like what a lot of people are trying to say. It's just not that simple, I'm afraid.
