    Can any of you guys seeing Warner Brothers settling for anything less than Dave? I strongly doubt WB would release a new VH CD without Dave (maybe Sammy).

    From a business standpoint, considering the sales of Three, im sure WB will say either Dave or Sam and thats it.

    warner bros. basically told van halen to get dave or (maybe) sammy. that's it.
    wb knows it's not going to make $$ off VH any other way.
    God forbid the band creates music for art's sake....

    Van Edge - yup...this is the music business alright - or as I like to call it - "the biz". If that sucker aint gonna sell - the major label aint interested. They got shareholders to look after. So would they drop VH?? If they don't get Dave possibly Sam back - I could see 'em doing one of two things.
    1)Releasing them from their contract
    2)Holding onto them preventing any other company getting them (just in case they decide to get Dave or Sam back at a later date) but not releasing any of their product.

    Good insight guys. I would say that WB is pushing for DLR, but willing to listen. WB must beleive in the product or they will not support it. I think these are both fair assesments.

    From a business standpoint, I really look at what WB does with VH's back catalog as an indication of what's up.

    Take the current remasters for example. They had to have made the conscious decision to ONLY remaster the first six albums, as anyone will say OU812 alone sounded worse than any of the ones that were remastered. Given the time the remasters were released, the decision to go ahead with it had to have been made when Dave was collaborating with the rest of the band.

    I would say that as far as the singer goes, if it was indeed someone like Sammy, they (WB) would move to give his albums with VH similar treatment, simply because logic says if the new album does well, the related back catalog will see a bump as well. If it doesn't come out that WB is doing that, then it would seem to imply that either DLR has patched things up (unlikely) or there is a 4th singer (equally unlikely).

    Essentially, any moves WB makes could tell the tale in the next month.

    stuff,
    you just reminded me of something.
    remember Alex was quoted as saying how pleased he and the band were at the sound of the remasters? he said in Billboard that they opted to have their own remastering engineer do the work as opposed to whoever WB wanted.
    well, who made this decision? dave had to have been consulted on this, whether or not he had any real say isn't the point. i'd trust ed's and alex's ears on this sort of thing any day, but i think it's a safe assumption to make that dave may have been in on the remasters. after all, he sang on all of 'em.

    VH has the right to chose whoever they want as a singer. WB contractually doesn't have a say.
    However, if they don't fully believe in the product, they won't promote the album and it will bomb. That's y VH is probably listening to what WB is saying. But remember that WB is going through a major shake-up. VH probably don't even have a point person to talk to anymore.
    If Halen didn't care about record sales or promotion, they could truly decide on anybody to be their singer...

    If this thing about VH owing WB money, then WB sure has done a good job in keeping it "in-house" they could easily come out and trash VH if it didn't look like they were reuniting with Dave (or Sam).

    I don't think WB would necessarily "trash" VH publicly. But they would just say something like "guys - if Dave aint back - we aint releasing it".

    This is why I think there is so much stalling right now. VH simply don't know what to do. They don't want to work with Dave IMO but warner is probably telling em "no 4th singer". So they are kinda stuck.
