    I'm sitting here reading all the threads and finally have come up with what (in my humblest of opinions) will probably happen with Van Halen.

    1) Dave won't be back. Which is too bad, because I never got to see VH with him. But lets face facts on this one - how many failed reunion attempts have there been? The reality is those three guys don't get along when Dave is with them.
    2) Sammy will return. Micheal will be the patch between Sammy and the brothers. It will happen around the time of the Rock and Roll Hall of fame. They will kiss, make up and things will be 1986 all over again..for 2 records. Then things will fall to shit for whatever reasons. Sammy got greedy, Eddie was drinking, Al was bitter, Mike didn't want to get pizza anymore.
    3) Ed and Al will release a greatest hits of never released material. Some Dave, some Sammy and yes, a couple from Gary. This will be followed by a follow up greatest hits package - remastered in perfect VH glory.
    4) Over the course of this stuff, Ed will get back together with Val. At some point, he will really give up drinking and smoking.
    5) Van Halen officially announces retirement - but not before they put on one show with Dave.
    Winners come and go; legends are forever.

    Scott,
    I agree with all except your last two points.
    "Eddie will give up smoking" ...when he drops dead with a butt firmly ensconced between his lips.

    "They will perform one more show with Dave"
    I don't think so, too much bad blood.

    I do think a short series of gigs with Sammy may be in the offering some years in the future to support a last gasp attempt at supporting some kind of box set, rarities outtakes etc. My only question is, at that point who will actually give a shit anymore?

    "3) Ed and Al will release a greatest hits of never released material. Some Dave, some Sammy and yes, a couple from Gary. This will be followed by a follow up greatest hits package - remastered in perfect VH glory."

    if it's never been released, it can't be a hit... that's a good idea, though...

    Some of that could very well happen and I've been pretty optimistic throughout all of this. With Dave, at least they tried recording together. With Sammy, they don't want any part of him. Mike would have to be a real good peacekeeper to get them together.

    I think You will see Val do a Bukaki Film with Groucho Marx before Ed quits smoking!
