    Look at it this way folks, they have no lead singer, no manager, no tour manager, no record label and probably don't have half a dozen other things they need I'm sure.
    So my point is we will know something is up when they pick up any one of the above mentioned positions it's that plain and simple, first and foremost is the singer then manager, the label can and probably will be last so until then I'm going with what the same guy who told me about the Ed\Val split months ago said, Van Halen has retired and didn't bother to tell anyone and until they change their mind we will hear nothing.

    If its all over then fair enough - but why havent they got the decency to come out and say so instead of leaving their fans in limbo?

    Why has Eddie put a message out saying he's getting back to making music? Mike has also said recently that VH will be back.

    Good points Rols.

    But with that said<

    A) No singer? How sure are we about this? They kept something as big as a marriage separation a secret for 9 months.
    B) No management? Starting over perhaps, why have a manager when their is nothing tour manage? ie: tour, record deal.
    C) No label? If they are starting over, and they record an album with any singer, then shop it around. Do you not think that somebody will sign them in a hearbeat? If its really good in their opinion, they will push the hell out of it.
    D) No tour manager? Are they on tour? and are they planning one in the next few moths?

    So we can speculate all we want about their future, but until they officially come out and say they are going to the aging rock star home, then Van halen is still alive, its just in a coma right now. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    I really feel now that since eddie got his clean bill of health that he has some positive energey behind him and is currently creating some killer music in his studio while Val has Wolfie for the summer before heading off to shoot her tv show.
    I strongly doubt that he and Alex are sitting behind a computer all day looking at Porn.
    They are 2 musicians, and music is in their blood. Its what they were put on this planet to do.

    Eddymon. any functioning band would get 4 outta your 4 points there as a 'yeh'. Van halen have NONE.

    -No singer. We know this from the lack of...songs. It's been like.. 4 years y'know!

    -No tour manager. No. They are not touring. so they dont need a tour manager this is true. But theres no positives here dude. Its a bad thing

    -No record contract. This isnt actually a plus either.

    -No management. No. would indicate uh... what do you reckon?

    Ever worked in politics dude? all that spinning and your going backwards quick.

    The situations grim for VH right now.
    A little zen....... Headed your way.......

    Maybe I am being a little too positive and hopeful.
    But, what is being negative going to get me?

    All we have is words from Eddie saying that we will be hearing from the band "vary soon".
    And in his National Enquierer interveiw he states that he is keeping very busy these days in creating music in his studio.

    I think that maybe we should just take the man at his word. HE is the one that holds the fate of Van Halen.
    So we can hear what Sammy has to say, what Dave has to say, what Chelle has to say, what Glenn has to say, what Goo has to say, and what Eddymon has to say. It doesn't do us jack shit until we hear what Edward Van Halen has to say. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    I hope that ALL Australians aren't so negative.
    Just go and see the new Croc Hunter movie and have a laugh.

    Not true, there were several people that knew about it before it leaked out, the fact that nobody wanted to believe it doesn't mean it was a secret.
    there was someone who also posted something a long time ago about VH being retired and no one wants to believe that either and honestly I'm one of them but that is exactly what the facts lead to
    and as I said the same person that told me about the seperation\divorce told me they were done and didn't bother telling anyone.
    I hope it's not true I don't know what I would do without hearing some new VH (at this point with *any* singer) but I'm afraid I have to believe it.

    We have to remember, these guys have been doing this for well over... Well all their lives really.
    Maybe they have decided it's time to live. Maybe they don't want to hang it up for good by announcing a retirement, they just don't want to put something out every year( or whatever) We wait years for the Stones, or whoever, to come out of mothball. There comes a time when you have to start thinking about yourself ( and please don't say, all they have been thinking about is themselves. I would say the same to anyone who says that). If they don't want to make an album for four or five years, to bad for us.

    We are now hearing that Eddie will be looking after his son while his wife(ex) is away. He's not going to have time to do much of anything, but be a dad. We will have to see.

    If Eddie and Alex have a brain in their head they will forget the major label.....create 5150 records and put out the un released Gary Cherone album on their own.

    Just like Dave did awhile back. I would bet Dave made more money putting it out himself, and keeping all the money, than he did on most Vanhalen albums he was on.

    Thats the smart move....it would also shut alot of people here up for awhile....except me, I need attention.

    It would buy them some time, and let them do what they really want to do, without people bugging them about new music, everytime they are taking a piss at the local Jack in the box.

    It would also give them some needed cash flow, and make them look like geniuses......instead of a bunch of old farts waiting for their medication to be delivered. [img]graemlins/yell.gif[/img]

    If the album is already done, thats the smart move. If they are lying and nothing is done, then release an old live album of Dave and sammy and gary stuff.....

    I guess what i'm saying is.......

    I'll be waiting in the bathroom at Jack in the box, to ask them these questions......let the annoyance begin!

    PS.

    The Wolfgang issue.......

    He's 11.....give him an X box and Ed can record for days without the kid knowing he left the room.
