    Have not posted since I can't remember when. But, I was wondering what you guys thought. When Gary left in 99, and they said they were working on the next album, were they really doing that and got sidetracked, or did they just put out the politically correct statement.

    I would like to think that they (Van Halen) knew what their next move was going to be and that other shit just sidetracked it. Today, I'm not sure. I understand Cancer stopping everything in its tracks and doing a major railroad stopage on any future plans, but I have heard so many times that Eddie has got it under control.

    Is is Legal issues? Seems like Ray Daniels is out of the picture. Is it Label Pressure? Nope they have split with WB. Is it the fans? Hell no, we are still here.

    Not a day goes by that I don't hope that I will learn what the hell is going on with VH. It bothers the piss out of me to see U2 win awards while VH is just a memory to people who it is not their favorite band.

    My wife jokes with me often saying Van Who?? She desparetly wants news, for nothing other than for me to stop telling her rumors that I see or hear that she will say to me yeah right.

    Looking for your feedback.

    I see your point, but the U2 bash was completely unneccessary. It's good to see any BAND that plays instruments and writes their own songs actually win awards these days in an industry still dominated by boyband bullshit and sell out pussies like Aeroshit who don't even write songs anymore.

    Not to mention U2 has managed to be the same 4 guys for 24 years which is more than I can say for some bands no matter how great they once were. Furthermore, they deserved every award they were nominated for. They're one of the few truly great bands left.

    FORD -- you know it is interesting to me that you replied back using Aerosmith as an alternative that I could have used in my post. They were actually the first choice when I was writing the post, however, I chose to say U2 because of the Grammy's. I was never a U2 fan in the 80's, so I never thought very much of them. I do see your point about them being together and writing for so many years. My apologies to those of you who like U2.

    I won't apologize for Aerosmith - they suck today!!

    Seems the plan was to release another one with Cherone. But after the failure of the Cherone release, a pour tour, and a general lack of chemistry with Gary, the band got lost on what to do and here we wait..... [img]graemlins/sleep.gif[/img]

    Didnt they take some of the songs to Warner Bros., and Warner did not like them ? I guess we will never know for sure on that one.

    Don't apologize for that U2 remark. I totally agree with you! I wanted to throw up when I saw them winning awards! I hate all of the songs on their new album. I would have rather seen someone like Creed win.

    I didn't see it as a "bash" on U2 at all. I took it as U2, being around as long as Van Halen, and still getting it done. If those old farts can do it, then why can't VH?

    That was my conception.

    The Boston Pilgrims (1903-1906)
    The Boston Red Sox (1907-present) - Proof

    The Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets whatever you want to call them, have NEVER displayed "SOX" anywhere on their caps, jerseys, or merchandise, therefore they shouldn't be referred to as such. However, the White Sox have used "SOX" since 1912.

    The SOX are in Chicago...we just allow the Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets to use the name.

    here's the deal....

    gary felt the pressure and even told ed to get dave back...gary leaves.

    the band decides to get back with roth. they do 3 songs and then ed has cancer treatments, to what extent, we do not know for certain. at this point, and this point only, all informtaion on van halen ceases to exist to us the fans.

    occasionally we see pics on the web of ed, who does not look good at all, understandably so, but still not looking good

    dave proceeds to do his own deal and still no word from the vh camp. mike is off with sammy. vh in the meantimme has fired it's lawyer, left wb, and has not communicated with the fans. dave thusfar has been quiet.

    the way it looks, yeah, they were gonna jam with dave again. but since the cancer scare, there's been nada from the band.

    i'll say again and i could be wrong, ed's health is still a major factor. if ed was truly healthy, why wouldn't they be working with roth now if they were working with him before?? think about it.

    lemme add this as well. gary leaves in november, dave is there in july. for two guys who constantly talked shit about each other since 85, that's gettin abck pretty damn quick. i think vh wanted dave back all along after the III tour was over and i think that was even talked about but we'll never know that for certain. just my opinion of course.

    Hmmmm! I wonder what assumptions claims suggesting that older rock musicians lack appeal? (Perhaps maybe "sex appeal" since that is a tantalizing element of the music). It seems, however, with regards to the qaulity of music, those having been around for while have experienced a great deal of musical elements and can incorporate those elements into present efforts into creating music. Van Halen has expressed this ability over the years, and so has U2! I think the idea that trendy "young rock musicians" are the only viable, attractive and marketable mainstream music source of the day, may imply that those who purchase such are very narrow minded! This would be truly ironic! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Thank God there's a 'U2' out there!

    and I agree that Eddie's health has been the entire holdup.

    I do think that Van Halen's next move after Gary left was to get back with Dave. Ed's battle with caner definaltely put the brakes on that and we've been in a holding pattern ever since. I don't know how everything else falls into place ie-splitting with Warner, Mikey doing his thing with Sammy, Scotty Ross leaving. Maybe they gave Dave another shot but the same old BS came to the surface and put a halt to it before Ed's cancer, who fuckn knows? All we can do is continue to speculate and hope that at some point will get something new from the band. I ain't giving up.
