    We all know that it is Dave or the grave, for well at least one more tour, whether it is a farewell tour or whatever. But do you believe that deepdown in Ed and Alex's mind they want zero to do with DLR, but need to right now to facilitate their future exsistance. I believe that they would rather have Sammy back, as I believe they are would have been on a better comfort level with him. But with rumored that Sammy told them to basically f off, they were basically forced to go with Dave. Well I guess only time will tell before that story comes out, but do you believe they really want this guy back?

    I doubt this answers your question, but I just think that they want to have the most fun and give us the best possible albums they can dish out, whether it be Dave or a 4th singer. I just hope Dave is back. It'd be interesting to hear him with Ed and the gang again. I loved his voice on his last solo tour. It sounded better and more unique than in the past.

    My thoughts exactly. Ed always said It's for
    the fans not the money but obviously that's
    changed. One last hurrah.

    Here are Eddie's deep thoughts,

    "Hmmm, now if I could do a rock video,
    the chicks would love me,
    ya you in the red yes you."

    "I'm the one with THE big ego,
    and everywhere I go,
    people laugh & stare,
    they say from their lips,
    its not about my hips,
    but I know the pain is there,
    brother Al, Mike & I,
    had a meeting of our minds,
    and decided to give Dave another try,
    we got together with a shrink,
    but all I wanted was a drink,
    and Mike ordered a whiskey & rye,
    then my doctor told me to lay off the butts,
    or a young man I may die,
    then spring came,
    I lost a piece of my tongue,
    but now making music is so much fun,
    that Dave is back & we get along,
    I gave up the booze and butts,
    so please Dave,
    please pass the bong."

    ------------------
    ENOUGH IS ENOUGH EDDIE, ALEX, MIKE & DAVE.

    Pretty clever Eddymon

    Do I think deep down Ed doesnt want anything to do with DLR? Of course he doesnt. I think he is doing it for the benefit of us and his families future well being. I'm sure he will amass some amount of joy from the screaming fans that love them for it, and thats probably the only personal gratification he will get out of it. But he sure aint doing it because he thinks Dave is a swell fella.

    I guess I'll go against the masses with this one.

    I think that deep down, they do want things to work out with Dave (and I also think he was their first choice). The original four have history and chemistry that they can't deny.

    I don't think it's for the money or for the fans either. If it was only for the fans, they would have announced their intentions months ago.

    I think pride is a major factor...that they ALL want to go out on top. To me, that is why it's taking so damned long. They want to get back together as a band first - mend fences...then work on the music. I'm not saying they'll be best buds, but deep down, I really think they love each other...

    Maybe I'm looking through rose-colored glasses...

    I think Ed desperately wants things to work out with Dave.

    Like Dave said on Stern right before the bottom fell out of the 1996 reunion -- VH is like one big dysfunctional family. Ed and Dave are like 2 brothers that were always in competition and never really got along.

    But there is a famlial bond between them -- they've got history -- backyard parties, the bar band days, etc. -- Sammy joined an already successful band -- while he was part of the band he did not share the history Ed has with Dave.

    I think that Ed wants to make music that makes him happy. He also wants to make his fans happy...He's torn between forging ahead with new sounds and maintaining the old sound....He's in an exciting spot right now...

    I agree with Broken Combs. IMO:
    We all should take a reality check about the so-called hatred between DLR and Eddie/Alex.
    How many years ago did the last incident happen? 6 years....how many friends have you pissed off or they pissed you off and now you are friends again? We, including myself, dwell on the MTV thing and the BIG breakup after 1984....we read and re-read and read it again that they hate each other!!! SOOOO..we think (since we read about the bitterness a lot) that they are constantly arguing with each other etc...I think they are making mends and will make more albums than a lot of us think...IT's a GOOD thing that is gonna happen!!!

    amen, guitarsolos...

    or Ed is thinking, "If I'd only joined KISS all those years ago, I'd be on a stage right now with Paul, Gene, Ace, and a guy who dresses like Peter Criss..."*L*

    I would liken it to a fighter not wanting to retire. Ed is not ready to lay the axe down yet.
    Does he want to have either Dave or Sammy be lead singer NO.
    Would he rather have someone who will just let Ed be the leader YES.
    Will that work anymore NO.
    Does Ed have any other choice NO.
    Will he swallow his pride in order to keep the Van Halen machine going YES.
    Does he like it NO
    Is Ed doing it for the fans ?
    Will there be someone on here that no matter what, will say Ed is doing it for the fans and we should be patient YES
    Is there going to be a new VH CD out with Roth as singer YES
    Will it be great YES
    Will it sell millions of copys NO
    Will Ed care YES
    Will he admit he cares NO
    Will VH then split up again YES
    Will they make more than one Cd together start reading from the top again
