    I have sent e-mails and get no response. I realize that he must get a shitload of them but I was wondering if he has ever come straight out and said NO.

    I think that if this band continues with this "no news is good news" approach, then they will be looking at a "no fans to buy our new album"

    This silence BS is getting very fucking old, they owe us an explanation. Thats all, I'm not saying that they should take out a 1 hour primetime slot on VH1 or something, but just come out and say "we are trying to work things out with one of our past singers" or "we have decided to hire a 4th singer" or "its time to hang em up folks".

    If they are looking for a 4th singer, come on, its been 3 years since Gary left.
    If they felt alot of pressure from WB about Gary's place in the band, who else would sign them without Dave or Sammy? They had a 24 year or so relationship with WB, they must have seen something in VH to make them uneasy.

    Come on guys, give US a break this time and just make your intentions known. So we can continue our wait or move on to a band that cares.

    I asked him at the PD if Sammy was coming back and he replied "Nope..."

    That was along time ago and he can be a real dork about your questions.

    Case in point.
    Someone at the PD started a thread saying that Mike is in Hawaii and is staying at Sammy's house.

    Brad chimes in and says "No he isn't..."

    Then the guy darts back with some very graphic details about the "who, what, when, and where" and says he knows for a FACT that Mike was staying at Sam's house last week!

    Brad chimes in again with "The key word being "was"."

    This was just before the whole "Rolsguitar incident" and the Dome being shut down.

    I can understand Brad's point of view but he's taken the "Webmaster" to whole new level. It's almost like he thinks he's part of the band or something...

    Nevertheless I've learned not to believe everything he says.

How many more times do we need to hear about how the oppressive Raj's wore villainous black capes, crafted cunning plastic masks to impersonate people, and drained all the blood from their slaves so they could keep the fluid in bottles in their dungeons? I mean, YAWN!

    But if you're willing to sit through this dry sort of historical drama one more time -- or even just this dry historical review -- you will not be disappointed. In fact, some of you might just learn something they didn't teach you in school!-

    I don't remember who posted it, but I have seen someone posting responses from Brad that Sam wasn't in the band...

    Sammy is not part of the original Van Halen.
    When Van Halen returns, it will be Van Halen.

    Van Halen's Webmaster has recently stated
    that Sammy is not the man. Ask your friends
    here that view the VH Mailing lists....

    Sorry to break this to you but it was "Van Halen" with either Dave,Sammy or Gary singing.You are right about if or when they return they will still be "Van Halen" .No matter who sings for them they will always be "Van Halen" As for Brad saying Sammy is not the man doesn't mean anything.He probably doesn't know Van Halen's future any more then we do.Maybe Sammy isn't the man but I'd bet Dave isn't the man either since they have tried 3 times with him and it never has worked out and never will.But by all means "Keep Hope Alive"

    Sorry to break this news to you, if that scenario
    is not your wish.

    It is Ed's intention to bring "Van Halen" back.
    The 2000 sessions of the original band were
    uplifting for all involved. Once the legalities
    kicked in, much of the amicable feelings
    and "magic" were severely overshadowed.

    This process continued into 2001. As fans of
    Van Halen, you would all know about Ed's health,
    his mother's health, his seperation from his wife,
    Warner Bro's not wishing to give Ed the time
    he needed, etc etc..

    Add to this the fact that neither the Van Halen's
    or Roth's legal people wish to give any sort of
    ground to the other side.

    However, it is and was and always will be Ed's
    intention to bring the band back. Unfortunately
    for some, this does not include Sammy.

    Van Halen will return, when Edward is ready.

    Dont let Michael's intensely good friendship
    with Sammy give you false hope.
    You dont need me to tell you that MA doesnt
    call the shots.

    So... you speak with such authority about Ed's intentions on what basis?

    If you want any shred of credibility then validate your intimate knowledge of Ed's intentions through fact or otherwise move to the back of the line with the rest of us couple of thousand fans with an opinion!! It's only a mile and half back around the corner and 15 blocks north of here...

    Rolsguitars and FullBugAZ (I think those were the usernames) both were at a show that Michael Anthony was a guest at. When asked they claim he told them he was working with Sammy on his next solo album. The two heard the same tale (they weren't together at the event).

    Brad flat out called Rols a liar. It exploded into a shitstorm. A few days later, the Dome closed indefinitely. Since then, much of what Rols heard has played out in the form of Mike on the Sam & Dave tour and the Planet Us project.

    Help us newbies understand! </font>[/QUOTE]Brad Starks is the webmaster for the "official" Van-Halen.com website.

    A year or two ago he opened a forum very similar to this one and called it the "Pleasure Dome". There's a few of his mods here, SoCalChelle or just Chelle now, Guitar Shark, Zahzoo...

    Every so often he would answer questions about the band or reply to statements and ALWAYS his comments were very brief and very vague.

    This was right around the time when The Dave/Van Halen rumors were in full force, and no matter how many times he was asked he would never give a straight answer. For the most part, he would deny Dave was back, but he never gave a definate "No". Like I said he was always vague.

    Many times he would deny rumors and say that his site would bring you the news first, only to get scooped by the VHND or VHLinks. (I think it was the 'Links that scooped the Golf magazine article)

    Anywho! The "Dave's back" rumors started to fade
    and a long time, respected person in the VH community, Rolsguitar, a guy who builds imitation Van Halen guitars, was a the NAMM Convention where Mike Anthony was at and, among other things, asked him about the band and Mike said that DLR was, in fact, back in the band. That plans were made to do an album and tour. He also said he (MA) was going to work with Sammy on side project, and maybe tour with Sam.
    Rolsguitar brought this up at The Dome and Brad denied it. Brad said he called MA and he said he didn't say those things. Brad all but called Rol a lyer and many folks who know Rol, stepped and defended him. They really started drilling Brad bringing up a lot of the facts that Brad denied, that turned out to be true. It got pretty ugly and from that point on, Brad creditability was shot.

    It wasn't long after that Brad closed the Dome down. Many believe that was the real reason.

    I for one, thought maybe Rol misunderstood Mike, or took what he said out of context. But to be fair, Mike did do Planet Us, and toured with Sam.

    Brad definately handle the whole situation wrong. Thats for sure...
