    To my VH brothas and sistas, be on the lookout for a fake WB press release from our favorite rumor starter, TBS. Remember you heard it here first.

    Yep definitely looks fake to me, I just had it sent to me and it definitely reads of our friend TBS. Poor grammar, and just the fact that Warner Bros. would even address rumors makes it obvious it is fake.

    I'm sure there are a handfull of us that will remember the "Other" fake press release. Man that was fun reading around here. The "triad" had a blast with it. I forget which three it was, but they all changed their names and shit, total fun back then. Hey Brett and Timmy, does it look as real as that one? Out.

    That was pretty good. had me pretty hooked at the time, even though the whole thing kinda seemed stupid.. I was young, and gullible, when she led me to the barn...

    oops, scratch the barn thing

    Hmmmm..... This re-incarnation of the fake WB press release makes me wonder if TBS,CinimaticSoul and AdamAnce are all the same person.

    I wouldnt doubt if CinimaticSoul and TBS are the same, they seem to have the same writting style.

    Here is my question for them why go to so much effort, whats to gain?

    whats to gain is easy: amusement. amusement at watching ppl debate and argue and postulate and wring their hands at anything that gets passed their way about the band, and amusement that the band in question hasn't recorded anything up to it's original standards in about 15 years now, nor has it even had the decency to keep it's fans posted regarding anything it's doing (IF anything at all), even if it was only a simple statement saying "sorry about the wait, but we're working things out, can't tell you a lot now, but we appreciate your patience"...

    yes, i tell you this - for those who create the fake press releases and rumors just for their own amusement, when the band/management itself tells you jack shit for all your patience (and all your money over the years), i can almost sympathize.

    while we're on the subject...

    does anyone really still think that the whole "reunion" thing (IF it happens, and i've seen nothing conclusive yet except for a bunch of hand-wringing and postulating by one person after another) will actually work? be reasonable. be realistic. david lee roth and van halen do not like each other, and i doubt any amount of money will make that change. they might THINK it can, but it can't. on top of that, there's been so many damn original lineup reunions lately, it's nothing spectacular or original any longer, more like a desperate ploy for money (e.g. black sabbath/ozzy osboure, iron maiden, etc. etc.), and i think people are beginning to understand that. more original lineup reunions are failing than succeeding, by the numbers. it sure as hell won't last any longer than one tour, if it gets even that far, before the four biggest egos in the rock and roll industry clash and the whole thing self-implodes.

    but hey, van halen's no stranger to self-implosion, hmm? just like living in paradise, indeed.

    Magic Eight Ball would like to see a copy of this fake press release posted somewhere. Is this possible? Looking deep into myself, I see only one answer: "All signs point to yes"

    BrownSound1, this one was horrible. Bad grammar, bad pics, bad WB logo. Not anywhere close to the one that came out around Feburary, March. Brett still has it I think. Maybe we can convince him to post it here.

    I think that first fake press release was made by Adamance/CinimaticSoul.

    I remember that first press release well, and I'm not sure that brownie any y'all are talking about the same one.

    Christ, back in March or so I was e-mailed a WB press release that was so fucking professional looking that I thought it was real. I sat on it for a couple of days, waiting for something else to be posted about it here at the links. When it wasn't, I started posting shit all over the place, and linked it.

    It was actually in February, linking VH to the Grammy's I believe...the date was February 23rd.

    The e-mail was sent to me by a gentleman named CARMONAO on AOL. Of course the press release proved to be false.

    I do know that CARMONAO and a poster named VH2K on the links here are one and the same. VH2K started posting a set list that was also sent to me from the same address, and would always support my statements.

    I don't think my release is the same as what's being talked about though.

    I could be wrong.

    That's the same guy who sent the latest one
    to me. It was so poorly done, it may as well have had HOAX printed on it in large red letters.
