    These guys couldn't manage a lemonade stand. They would still manage to find a way to piss off all their loyal customers. What gives? They call the fans liars...then close the dome? Give me a break. Alot of people have frequented that place for over a year. Members have made friends, people have put in an effort to make it a fun and enjoyable place to be, and then they just pull the plug on it without notice or explanation? Oh....but it will be back up, when the time is right? Sorry Ed and company, at this point you have no one left to point the finger of blame at, but yourselves. Not Dave, not Sammy (the lazy solo artist), not Gary (I can't write lyrics without a political message). No, you have had, and do have, LSD. Plain and simple!

    Closing the dome is just one more straw on the camel's back!!

    The way you've been treating us loyal fans, is complete bullshit...to quote someone else....

    Question : Can Van Halen Screw Things Up Any Worse?

    Answer: Yes, they could always attempt a 4th singer.

    Welcome back, Van HALEN!!!!

    ...It's the BAND and Dave is really the cat that can front VH. He sang his ASS off and was really cool. No cheese here guys, this is filet Mignon! - Steve Lukather's comment after witnessing a Van HALEN 2007 rehearsal

    I'm more interested in the reaction when we get some news. If you're a Dave fan, and Dave returns, will all be forgiven or will there be some residual bitterness about 1999-2001? Personally, I think that no matter how bent out of shape we get about their travels through steps 1 to 9, all VH has to do is do step 10 right and all will be forgiven and forgotten.

    Question is, can they do step 10 right? Probably not.

    <hr></blockquote>If Van Halen comes back with singer number 4, they're done. If
    Dave returns, he will bring back a lot of the fans with him. As much as Ed has tried to discredit Dave and Sam, it hasn't worked. By slinging mud all he has done is lost ground.

    The third singer resulted in the band being placed on life support, but luckily some brain activity was observed (reuniting with Dave to write a handful of songs).

    If a fourth singer is hired, I would be willing to pull the plug and let VH die with what little dignity it has left. And look back on the good days, not the last few painful years.

    I know that sounds harsh, but it really becomes a joke with the addition of another lead singer. Which opens the door for singers number five and six. And there is no way in hell I would support that.

    Can they screw up more? Well yeah, everyone can.

    But closing the Dome could be a blessing in desguise for you displaced people. The place was a clusterfuck anyway - this just gives Brad time to do some pruning and sorting (or what we know will happen - sitting around with his thumb up his butt ).

    <hr></blockquote>I don't think Dave or any singer will ever be considered the permanent singer. Just imagine, an announcement is made that Dave is indeed back. The "good karma" will last about a week, and then the speculation will begin on whether they make it through a tour. The rumours will start, that they aren't getting along, and before long the speculation will start that Dave won't last.

    This is the whole problem with Ed and Van Halen at this point. They're like a drunk that keeps falling off the wagon, promissing it was for the last time. This time things will be different, this time they're on the wagon for good. Eventually, you get to a point where you just don't believe it anymore. I'm at that point....
