    here's the scenario. it is a hypothetical, but that's all we have these days.
    Anyway, here it is:

    "Stunning news from the world of rock n roll today-guitarist Edward Van Halen broke his self-imposed, 6 year hiatus and released the following statement during a live news conference from his studio,5150, in some valley in Cali.
    The statement reads: " First, i'd like to thank all the fans who have supported Al and I over the years. You really are important to us...even though we may not have shown it the last few years.
    Anyway, the reason i'm here today is to give you some news on the band and what our future is. As you know, i'm not a very good politician, so i'll just dispense with courtesies and get to the meat of the matter.
    As you all know, Dave is suing us in court and that pretty much precludes us ever working together again. Just put yourself in my shoes and think about it--would you want to work with someone who sued you over bullshit?
    As for Mike, yes it bothered me that he would tour with Sammy, but for selfish reasons..and i'm over it. Speaking of Sammy, here is the deal i've just offered him and here's the deal i'm offering our fans:
    We will make ONE, and only one, final album from VH and then we will retire from rock n roll. It's just too much a pain in the ass anymore to deal w/ all the execs,mgrs,producers,etc.It's not a pain to play and the fans are awesome and we love all of you. If it was as easy as recording music and releasing it and going on tour, i'd release an album every 3 months. But it's not that easy, and so, i am going to leave it up to our fans. Here is the choice:
    We,and i mean AL,myself and mikey, will put out one final album-a double album ,no less, and then that is it. Now the choice is whether we release an instrumental double album as the finale or if we release a double album w/ Sammy on vocals, which he hasn't agreed to yet. Either way, it's the very last album by us. The choice boils down to either releasing a double-album, instrumental, NOW or WAITING for the CHANCE that Sammy might, and i mean might, accept and make an album with us..or he may decide to decline and then that is it.
    So, as i said, the choice is yours. whatever the majority decides, we will do.
    Oh, the other thing is, if you choose the instrumental version, there will be no tour. If you take the chance on Sammy saying yes, and he agree's, there will be a tour."

    It's either a definite album now, with no singer and no tour, or take your chances on a deal with Sammy and a potential album and tour in the future.

    So what will it be?
    the choice is yours.... [img]graemlins/wtf.gif[/img]

    Yeah, I'll sign up for the VH tour too. Maybe EVH should think about starting his own label to release his own stuff, I mean since they're not on Warner anymore, at least they could easily get a distribution deal with a major. That would be the ideal home for his instrumental works. Of course, this would involve a business sense, which the VH boys don't have, but they could hire someone they trusted to do it. (Ray need not apply.) Boy, am I getting ahead of things or what?

    I would say the hell with making a instrumental album. One or two songs maybe, but an entire album or a double album would fail greatly. Why can't they put together a "all star" band with various vocalists taking turns on a double album? If Carlos Santana can do it, I know Eddie certaintly can.

    Or how about (Eddie) playing on a few songs for other singers on their albums? Just do something to get yourself and your name out there. I'm sure the fans aren't the only ones confused as to what you want to do with your career anymore. More offers will come forward once they get a chance to hear your awesome playing.

    Niether, go retire. Van Halen died in 85,96 and 2000. Just release the stuff from 2000 with Dave on it and call it a day. Put out a career spanning box-set of unreleased material after that.

    don't forget, if you choose sammy and a tour, and sammy says "no", then you get nothing!

    First of all.Sammy would do it. He has always said that his best years musically was in VH. Remember, he didn't quit! I would love to see EVH play live at least once more...so I'd bet on Sammy & the tour!
    Said this many times before ..how sad that Eddie & Dave have allowed there to be so much bad blood between them

    Van Halen never died in 85,96 and 2000.
    There seems to be a bit of confusion between who and what died.
    What died was Daves career and he has nobody to blame but himself.
    I guess we could call it Rock'n'Roll suicide.
    However to compensate for this tragic loss we had the birth of twisted and bitter Lee Roth fans who are to blind to see how there hero fucked up.
    Bring back The Red Rocker who will make VH as alive as ever.

    Yep. Sam and a Tour. And the summer off so I can follow the band.
    Man, all I can do is make music and put it out, and if people like it, they like it, and if they don't, they will sooner or later.- EVH
