This topic has certainly been addressed by now given the time we've all had to debate the fate of Van Halen but I think it bears repeating. I believe that the fact the band parted ways with Cherone is proof positive that they intend to move forward in some fashion. I bring this up as a counterpoint to those that believe the band will not continue. Of course, the question is how they will proceed (i.e. with Roth, Hagar, or a fourth) but that topic is being addressed in just about every other thread so I won't go into that here. In light of the lack of information from howdy doody mountain, I think this is a positive thing that is being overlooked due to the ridiculous amount of time that has gone by since Cherone's departure. Call it a "glass half-full" topic I guess.
