    From listening to Dave, he didn't sound pissed off. Now, if Ed just didn't get back with Dave or couldn't deal with him or was being lazy or playing with himself or whatever, don't you think Dave would be a little pissed, i.e. like '96? This makes me think that either 1)This statement was made to mislead the public (I don't see why Dave would do this) or 2)Something else is going on that we don't know about.
    If VH owed 10 million, which is very possible, I don't know, I think a logical way to pay it back would be to put Dave on the mic and sell out stadiums like a son-of-a-bitch. How else are they gonna pay it back? Ed sitting on his ass isn't gonna do it.
    Dave not being pissed off kinda makes me happy, but it also makes me worry. One possible reason things could be slow is that Ed could be having health problems. In addition, there could also be other crap happening that we haven't even thought about. Who knows.
    Just seems kinda funny to me that Dave wouldn't be mad about not being in touch with Ed since July. Thats a long time. You would figure he would have lashed out. If Ed hasn't talked to him since July, he isn't going to unless there is something we don't know that is going on. Why the hell would he not talk to the man for that long, then all of a sudden call him up and start back recording 9 months later? I'm telling you, if this thing is still gonna happenn, then something is going on that we haven't really considered. Just my 2 cents worth.

    I think Dave wants to nudge the brothers, but he doesn't want to punch them. Him being pissed off in his message would most likely piss Eddie off, and that would end things for sure. Dave is intelligent enough to know that his solo career has basically run its course, and his only realistic shot at fame and further fortune is under the Van Halen umbrella.

    Good point. I just kinda think that letting the cat out of the bag officially like he did would piss them off too. I mean, technically, there was no official evidence they were working together until now. Now that everybody knows that they were working together, we now have the potential for '96 all over again because everybody's gonna be pissed at Ed because he can't deal with Dave or whatever it is. Dave comes off as the good guy because he is "ready to go" and we hear nothing from Ed. Even makes me favor Dave a little. Who knows, Dave might be the asshole for all we know. I guess the pressure of the possibility of a '96 repeat could also make Ed "have" to work with Dave too. It's like you said, they need each other.

    And he's had 10 months to practice his "I'm not pissed" voice.

    What I don't get is when Dave said he is "positive for the future," does he mean with Van Halen or just himself?

Stick a microphone in Dave's face, and he'll tell you how great things are, even if he's riding in the back of an ambulance. That's just his style.

    Sounds to me like even Dave doesn't know where he'll be musically in six months.

    Stop and reflect back on every bit of "official" news we've gotten in light of the current announcement.

    Does any of this make any sense to you?

    None of it makes sense, but now Dave has put the band into a corner. Put up or shut up. I still think the reunion is going to happen, it's the only feasible alternative for the band at this point if they want to continue on as Van Halen.

    dave basically covered his ass and put ALL the attention on eddie now. everyone is waiting to see what van halen is going to say, and dave comes off as mr. olive branch.

    it's simple spin control no matter which way you slice it, and no matter what eventually happens (whether or not this whole thing turns to shit.)

    Brett, I like your post.

    However, there still lies the strong possibility that Ed might hang it up.
    Why?

    Because I think that in his mind, his greatest fear is to publicly admit (by issuing a reunion statement) that he DID NEED ROTH, after all.

    This is hardly the end of Van Halen. Mark my words.

    With or without Dave they'll find a way

    Dave trying to get some movement from the VH camp IMO. Hence he has to remain nice so as to make situation still possible.

    Dave is an optimistic guy. He looks at the good side of things most of the time. That is a good quality imo.
    I am awesome
