    Just found this at DLRND. Don't know how reliable these guys are, but interesting anyway.

    More positive DLR/VH reunion news
    Posted By: [Mike B] on Thursday, October 18th, 2001 @ 5:25 PM
    The DLRND staff has conducted an interview with a respected member of the Music Industry who gave us his "inside" information about the long awaited reunion:

    Thanks for taking the time to get in touch with us.
    So you have a “source” that has given you information about the state of Van Halen and the anticipated reunion with David Lee Roth. Let me first ask you this, do you honestly trust your “source”?


    quote:
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Yes, I trust my source implicitly... This source has been right on about much stranger information in regards to the band. So YES, I do trust my source.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------


    So how do you know this contact? Are you in the business as well?


    quote:
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Look I began to work as a DJ well over 16 years and have worked my way up through the radio business since then. I have enough credibility and enough contacts to know when to "put my job on the line" so to speak when it comes to this kind of information. This is gonna happen. Having worked at several of the top rated classic rock stations in the country, it is a fact that the record company's take good care of you. Over the years you build certain "special" relationships...like my contact that works for Warner Brothers.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    All right, so what do you have for us?


    quote:
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    It's a fact Ed and Dave have been “noodling” around and that the lawyers have been talking. Especially since Dave’s tour ended this summer. My source says the real problem lies with the lawyers making sure Dave wont get screwed again like he did in 1996. But they are recording and Warner is pushing for a late march release date. From what I hear the band hasn't been recording at 5150 to avoid speculation...the goal is to allow rumors and innuendoes to build so that the anticipation will be high and they will get a lot of airplay from us (radio) and Mtv/VH1.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    So why give this information out to us here at the DLRND and not announce it over the airwaves?


    quote:
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Obviously the big drawback to being a respected radio personality is that the "suits" at Van Halen Inc. are not going to give out any info until the ink is dry and lawyers are happy. So for me to announce anything over the airwaves makes me liable.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------


    You do realize that everyone who reads this is going to question your credibility and mine about this information.


    quote:
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I guarantee I’ve been through worse and I am use to having people doubt me when I get a "Scoop." All that we can do is put it out there and let people do what they will with any information that we provide. Just keep this in mind: we are the ones who can smile politely when we are proven right. Another thing to take note of though...the Official Site of Van Halen has been noticeably silent on this matter. That should steel any resolve, if it wasn't true that negotiations with Dave are not still on going, that rumor would have been denounced by now. Their webmaster did comment that Sammy Hagar was NOT rejoining the band on more than one occasion already.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Got anymore information for us?


    quote:
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The grapevine is spreading fast, I've had a few phone calls at the studio this morning regarding this... I should have a few of the song titles by next week if things work out properly over the weekend. so stay tuned.... I will keep in touch!
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------


    As soon as we get more, we promise to get this out to all of you ASAP!

    Gosh... that's just like most every other 'credible' rumor we've heard. They even have the part about working somewhere other than 5150 so as not to draw attention. Lord knows we all know what's been going on at 5150 lately. Those of us with webcam access, anyway. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    Yeah, this is a little 2000-ish, isn't it seen? Not nearly as sophisicated and polished as our upcoming 2002 rumors.
