    Except for DLR's attempt to stir things up with a reference to his "former guitarist" in a press release to save that theater in Pasadena, things have gotten really quiet.

    Some will undoubtedly say that this is the "quiet before the storm." But for the past 2 years it has been the "quiet before . . . well, more quiet."

    Sure, anticipation is great. Everyone loves those 30 seconds of silence after the house lights go down before a concert begins. But extend those 30 seconds for 2 years (punctuated only with asshole remarks like "It's somebody you'll all know" or "No news is good news") and the anticipation becomes annoyance. Don't believe me, I've got 3 words -- Axl "Dickhead" Rose. That dummy took so much time that he ruined a rock band.

    The bottom line is that VH needs to shit or get off the pot.

    But you are right, it MUST come soon.

    The interest level does seem to be dwindling down.

    It's funny how we always hold out hope, but sometimes the life support has got to be shut off. If something doesn't happen pretty quick it's over. They have to ride out into the sunset sometime. Are they saddling up? [img]smilies/cry.gif[/img]

    Why is everyone stressing patience with the band. For Christ Sakes it has been over 3 years since the last release, and not a peap out of them for 2 years. I don't give a crap who the singer is, they owe the fans an explanation, and status on what the band's future is, no questions asked. Ever since Sammy has left, he has produced 3 albums, three tours, and has been more than accessible to the media and his fans. This cannot be the same for VH. They are not above any other band out there. This is nothing but a kick in the crotch. Maybe there is someway we can beat it out of them, like having some radio station hold a 'burn VH album day' to get them to committ to making a statement. I wonder if any fans will be left when they do finally show their faces.

    It's only been almost a year and a half since the band announced something official.

    You know...I could take sides on this. There's silence...a year and a half worth of crap from Brad, mysteries from Mike and pretty much bullshit or nothing from everyone else.

    I've got my music. I've got my Roth albums...my Classic VH albums. If it dies...I'll be pissed. More pissed than most. But I still got what got me here...

    We do deserve something. How about, "We're trying it again with Dave. We don't know if it will work out because we still have personality clashes, but we realize the music we make is what brought us here, so we're going to try. This isn't baby steps, just a chance to bring it back to the fans. It may not work. If it doesn't we'll go from there. Until then, be patient, because if WE'RE not patient, it may not work out."

    What do we get? The concieted morons from v-h.com telling us bullshit after bullshit information.

    21 years of lovin' this band...and we get fucking nuthin'

    Patience is for people who have no jobs and too much time on their hands. Life is too short to be waiting around for something to happen. I don't want to be in the grave when something finally happens, I'd like to hear it while I'm still around. RHRN

    POJO - What's up, my man? [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    Look at it this way: If you read between the lines (no news IS good news), then your quote here IS what's being said. And loyal, intelligent fans could handle this sort of information. But not the general public. No way. They could say this to us and it would ease our minds and make us want to party, but the general public (the millions of people who will potentially buy this album), will HOLD THEM TO IT with no remorse, virtually GUARANTEEING a commercial flop should the reunion not work out. I can't imagine the public strongly latching on to an "almost was" VH reunion album, no matter who else sings.

    So, I think they're playing it smart. It's toughest on us die-hards for the time being - but we're gonna buy the album anyways, right? [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    Just some thoughts, carry on POJO! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Following the logic in my thread above -Allowing rumors of a DLR reunion to fly around while remaining silent is actually more potentially dangerous to the band's longevity than a quick dismissal or affirmation of said rumors. Therefore, Dave is back. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    Well, if VH's silence isn't your style you could always explore a latant interest in the great defunct rock bands of the past.

    Winger, Ratt, Twisted Sister, Cinderella, Firehouse, etc [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    BT, you a wise and patient man. Listen to him folks and have hope. Things will happen and I just have a feeling in the pit of my stomach that is VERY close. The CD will rock, and the tour will be the best. I get as tired of waiting as everyone else, but I would much rather the band take their time and get it right than put out something half ass and things fall apart again. Then we would be left with nothing. None of us want that do we?
