    My cousin made a good point that really is the truth about Van Halen in 2002 going into 2003...there is none.

    In truth, VH ceased being an actual band since November of 1999 when Gary Cherone made his surprise exit.

    We've been teased a bit by rumors (eventually confirmed) that DLR did do some work on new material in the summer of 2000 at the 5150 studio, but other than that, we've gotten pretty much nothing from an official standpoint.

    In fact, the best way to approach VH is to look at them as a thing of the past, which is essence what they are..."right now (pun intended)."

    Should VH regroup somehow, someway, then we can all look on it as a bonus or a special thing - if they don't, then we've already dealt with it and we can just keep the spirit alive through the albums, videos and our own view of what made VH so great.

    Getting all worked up into a frenzy over a band that's done nothing for over three years and shows no signs of making an effort to regroup or revitalize is a waste of effort and emotional energy.

    Enjoy what was and revel in it...but don't put your life on hold pending some magical word from Eddie that may or may not happen this coming year.

    Let's all focus on the good that was VH, whether you prefer Mark I, II, or III. I personally like both the Roth and Hagar eras with a nod towards the Roth era over Van Hagar. Even the Gary Cherone era was good from a live standpoint, so it wasn't a total-write off like the album was. And even "Van Halen III" had a couple of tracks that aren't a total waste, but anyway.

    Hey, I hope everyone here has a safe and Happy New Years and let's just have some fun on these BBs and not worry so much about something we have no power over.

    Peace,
    ACK!!

    Like I said, I think it's better to think of VH is over - that way, if they do get back together, it's special. But I'll believe VH is back when I'm holding the new CD in hand as I load it into my player.
