    I am convinced that this is the guy who's responsible for what happened to the once mightiest band on the planet. If Ed Leffler was still with us, Van Halen would still be on top and Sammy would've never left the band. Danniels was feeding bullshit to Ed and Al about Sam wanting to be a solo artist, stabbing the band in the back, etc. I know that SRO, Danniels company, also manages several other acts. I hope these other bands are paying attention, as the contract that VH signed with him is probably what's holding things up now.

    I also agree 100% that it was Danniel's that fucked up Van Halen.
    Sure Eddie may have some of his own issues, but it was RD's negative input toward the band that eventually led to the nightmarish phone call between Ed & Sam that had Ed calling Sam's work ethic into question and telling him to be a solo artist again. Alot of negative shit must have been fed to the brothers (particulary Eddie) and oneday in an argument something was regretful was going to be said.

    I also believe that RD wanted Dave back in the band because he knew that there would be all sorts of money flowing for a tour that would probably (given their past history and all) a one and done thing and then where would VH go after that? They pushed Sammy out, they couldn't make it last forever with Dave, we all saw what a commercial disaster VH3 was. (I do believe the follow up would have done much better)

    So RD got his wish, VH did part ways with Sammy, they did work with Dave again. And it didn't even make it past recording 2 songs (which according to Ed & Al, were very painstaking seeions), forget about an entire new album and tour. Then they brought in Ray's guy in Gary Cherone, now he is gone. Van Halen has been out of commission for 3 years with no new singer, no plans (that we know of) of putting out anything new in the future. And their bass player just completed a guest starring role on one of this past summers most successful tours with the same singer that Danniels wanted out in the first place.

    Yes Ray 'fucking' Danniels did fuck up the greatest rock & roll band to ever come from the United States of America. And at a time when this country could have used some uplifting kick ass rock & roll after we were KAMAKAZEED by a bunch of cowards and were left in an emotional wreck.

    Whether if it was Dave or Sammy singing, they were still the "Greatest Rock Band to ever come from this GREAT LAND of Ours" and as the world mourned with us, we all could have enjoyed our VH. Instead we got "NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS".

    The Van Halen Brothers are lost it seems, they need a manager to straighten their asses out RIGHT NOW and tell them just how good they were, and how good they still can be.
    There is only one person out there with the experience to do just that.

    Right on about Irving Azoff! Any man who can get Glenn Frey and Don Henley to make nice can surely bring Van Halen back together again. Well Irving, how about it?

    I have no doubts that Danniels hold over Van Halen is *THE* main reason for the holdup. Could it be that Ed and Al are effectively "gagged" by this lawsuit ? That would explain a lot.

    There's a thread about this possible lawsuit over at the Yahoo VH Group - Brad has not denied it and has even hinted at its existence.

    I have to agree with the sentiment of this thread. Maybe Ed and Al are so quiet is becasue they don't have a choice legally. You would think that Michael Anthony would have been angry with them if they were just sitting around doing nothing. Maybe this is what was meant about "lawyers getting involved" in regards to the 2000 DLR/VH get together?

    Also how do I find the Yahoo Vh group????????
