    I am so frustrated by the internet, inlcuding bogus rumours, webmaster smugness and all the rest of it, so I posted the following letter to DLR himself at his house. Pathetic I know but it made me feel better. For those who might claim it is an invasion of privacy, well I receive mail all the time from people who acquire my address some how. It is just a letter. He can throw it in the bin...no hassle


    "Dear Mr Roth,

    Normally I would start by saying I am your greatest fan and yadda yadda yadda, but I know you’d have a yawn, toss the letter aside, or get one of the quirky PR fellows to send me a nice reply saying how you love the fans and appreciate my support.

    However, the very fact that I’m writing you a letter confirms my worthiness of fan status and I already know you appreciate my support because all of the albums I’ve bought probably just equates to enough money to pay for the cigar you’re probably smoking as you are reading this letter.

    What I’m wanting to know Mr Roth is, are you reconvening that little side-show that would be Van Halen? The internet is full of colourful rumour, hear-say and “concrete insider” facts like: “The guy at the Peavey guitar shop said he saw a photocopied picture of EVH the other day standing outside of the 5150 studio with a new hair cut that resembled that which he wore during the Hide your Sheep tour of 81 therefore the reunion is on!!”

    Quite frankly, I respect the band’s decision to keep quiet on things and to let the rumours spread to build rabid fan anticipation. However, there’s something inside of me that just possesses me to directly ask the source himself so that I might have some inner peace in knowing that I can actually look forward to visiting my local record store later this year to buy some new kick-arse music instead of avoiding the sad, sad scene of confronting boy band posters, rap thumps and metallica wannabes.

    Granted, I could have emailed your web site, or I could have contacted your management office, or I could just sit on my arse and wait like everyone else. But the fact that I have written to you personally, asking this very question of reunion and whether there will be a new VH album this year, gives hope to the notion that you might reciprocate the directness and respond with an accurate answer.

    Yours sincerely


    Adam Stevenson

    Way to go adam! And what the hell? It can't hurt, right? You never know, you might actually get some kind of response. I mean hey, at least you did something, right? I commend your effort.

    Great letter, though, Adam.

    Great letter Adam. Although it's probably just more fuel for the fire...Dave has to be laughing his ass off with all of these rumours on the internet. I would be...

    Dave's probably thinking, "wasn't the Hide Your Sheep tour the one in 1982 for Diver Down". I, too, liked the cigar reference, because the last thing a star wants to hear is a fan saying "I made you a millionaire".

    I'm sure Dave will have a good laugh at that cigar reference.

    But, that was indeed a great letter.

    Who knows? Maybe Dave will respond. I always hear how approachable Dave is and how he loves the fans so much.

    This could be our ticket!
