    Well, it seems that lately all I'm hearing about is how the reunion, if there ever was one, has fallen apart.

    First there were Sammy's comments. I'd be surprised if Sammy doesn't still have friends in the VH camp, maybe just not the band themselves.

    Then there's TK implying that there is no reunion. There's a thread about it at the Army. There's also some yo-yo over there who posted a "one-time-only" thread saying that the reunion fell apart and that WB paid-off Dave to keep quiet about it, and that right now VH is recording with another singer (who's identity wasn't revealed, of course).

    Then a local DJ told me that the reunion was just a rumor and that it would never happen, and that the band was in no hurry to go into the studio.

    Now HARDKNOCKZ posted here yesterday and said that Roth was out. He's supposedly going to have some news soon.

    Now, I'm not saying that any of these sources are credible AT ALL, but why are all these stories suddenly coming out of the woodwork, and why are they all negative?

    All I will say is that yes, it is Ed, Al, and Mike's band and they can do whatever the hell they want.

    BUT, if they do infact hire a 4th singer they should seriously consider calling it something besides Van Halen. Call it the fricken EVH Project or something, because if they call it Van Halen, they will have tarnished the name beyond repair (some will argue that it's too late for that)!

    Sorry for being negative, but this whole drama is getting absurd and I'm tired of it.

    I think we're all growing a bit weary of it...

    I for one could use some good news from the VH camp!

    I think it's just a combination of what's "en vouge" at the time and the fact the "there's a reunion, but they're just keeping it quiet" has gotten old.

    Most people want to drum up attention and get people to listen/watch/visit. You need breaking news to do something like that. "No news is good news," much as we may have been force-fed it since November, is not going to pack in the crowds.

    So, as a drastic step, you start saying Dave's out. You say if he was still in, they would have told the people by now since there's no use in keeping it silent. And you wait until one person here sees it, and bang, suddenly everyone goes to the site to read and exposure goes way up. It's the flavor of the month, and I doubt this is just something Sammy dreamt up to get sales for Ten13.

    And you know, I give the people who do this a lot of credit. They get the hits, and if they should be proven wrong, they just blame their "sources" for feeding them bad information. If they get it right, then they can claim you heard it there first.

    It's excellent media mind games.

    Don't fret. Dave could still catch on with the Atomic Punks. Maybe they could open for VH IV! Or Kyle Workman! Have you heard his new album, Tabula Rasa? You pathetic suckers.

    I'm listening to some live bootleg Van Halen right now, and I'm getting some great vibes.

    You know, I've only got a finite amount of time here on this great big spinning planet. I'm going to spend a ton of that time listening to Van Halen, but I'm not going to spend any time worrying about Van Halen.

    See, Glenn has the right attitude. No need to worry folks. We have never know Dave to be this quiet, it's not his nature. If he wasn't in, he'd be all over the place saying he's not. But he isn't so that leads me to one conclusion.

    Of course, VAN HALEN themselves COULD clear all this up if they wanted to. But obviously they don't care to.

    Dave is definitely not one to string the fans along. If it wasn't happening, we'd know. Hang in there guys.

    It's going to happen. Hell, it's probably happening now, and we just don't know it. Relax, and get ready!

    Van Halen camp must be close to rejoining the living because all the new "Dave is out" rumors have the familiar stentch of Brad Starks all over it.
    They're trying to throw us off the scent of DLR at 5150.imo
