    Contrary to my post on the "Sammy Back" topic about me "sticking my neck out".
    I may have chopped it off, there are too many conflicting reports/rumors that keep coming in that its getting hard to take them seriously.

    At the end of last week there was what seemed to be overwhelming amounts of Sammy is back stuff so I made the declaration, but like the fine Florida voters have shown us, don't declare too quickly.

    Why I say this?

    It is now known that contact between people from Van Halen have talked to Sammy about him returning. Sammy isn't committing but is still very hurt by what happen during the "Best Of" sessions with Dave. But he hasn't "officially" declined either, this is leading to the continuous speculation that something may indeed happen after all.


    Now as for Dave,

    Eddie still seems to want Dave on the next record because he feels a need to "re-invent" Van Halen. And the best way to do that is with Dave, but he may swallow his pride and apologize to Sammy and attempt to patch things up with him as well. He may still do that even if Dave comes back as well.

    People jumped too quickly about a EEAS band reunion because of Billy Sheehan's departure from Mr. Big.
    That is untrue.
    There will not be a EEAS reunion (according to sources), and Billy knew that. So now he has agreed to rejoin Mr. Big to finish out their tour and then disband the group and then they all will go their separate ways.
    One possible rumor has Billy wanting to go back to his jazz roots and do something on that line.

    So its not yet known as to what will be of Van Halen but one thing for sure is that Eddie isn't ready to call it quits just yet and that Alex is getting healthier from whatever he has been ailing from. Its quite likely that 2002 will see a return of the Mighty Van Halen in some form.


    Peace

    I personally think it will be Sammy, which is bonus because if either singer comes back I would much prefer Sammy. Dave would be to far a step backwards, and I really can't see how Dave could 'reinvent' Van Halen, he is too many years behind (stuck in the 80's). Sammy I think is a little more, well maybe not progressive, but look at his setlists, at least he is not a VH cover band, which btw he could just as easily have done...*lol* question is would he have still only done ATBL, Panama, Jump? *lol*

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>First off, there's only so much you can re-invent a rock and roll band. And even if this were true, I don't see Dave as being the guy to be likely to help re-invent them.

    <BLOCKQUOTE>quote:</font><HR>but he may swallow his pride and apologize to Sammy and attempt to patch things up with him as well. He may still do that even if Dave comes back as well.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>Someone would have to be pretty close to Eddie to make this declaration.

    I don't buy any of this beyond it being wild speculation. Bottom line, Eddie needs to call up the guy he wants to work with. Not the guy who the record company wants, or who he thinks will sell more records, or more concert tickets.

    I agree as to Eddie should be the one he wants to make music with because he must be happy first.
    Some of the other shit has been either info recieved by my source or read elsewhere.
    the contact between Sammy and the band is also found on the last melodicrock report.
    Alot of it is speculation and rumors.

    Without the rumors, we wouldn't have any speculations.

    Eddymon, you sure keep things interesting here at the ol' rumor mill. I'm sure folks from the VH camp have tried to contact Sammy since DLR has been doing his own thing. As usual, we just have to WAIT and see.

    "[...]So after the tour in Japan in January, no more Mr. Big. That's it in a nutshell. I'll be doing a more detailed explanation of all the events leading to this on my site when I get a chance.
    Yours, Billy Sheehan."
    [Source : Melodic Rock]

    Conclusions:
    1.) NO EEAS reunion (at least untill feb 2002)
    2.) Dave is on tour - so no VH reunion
    3.) VH keep up with : no news is good news - no new CD this year.
    4.) Im bored to the ground [img]smilies/sleep.gif[/img]

    I don't disbelieve anything Eddmon is saying here, as they say 'don't shoot the messenger'. I believe him 100% in what he says he heard, but weather his source is accurate is another matter. However this does seem very believable to me, especially about Sammy still feeling hurt and wanting an apology (I don't blame him). These guys were very close friends and I am sure Sammy was very hurt by this whole thing, and the fact that he was/is hurt just proves how good friends there were, otherwise why be hurt? I am anti Dave, but if they go that direction obviously I'll buy the CD and be greatfull for new VH music, but I just can't see it lasting long. And Eddie should call Sammy and apologize no matter who he chooses to work with, friendships are one of the most valuable things in life, and I am sure Eddie turns away from the mirror when the thought of Sammy comes to mind. Real shame that was, hope they one day renew that friendship with Sammy in or not.

    yes, solo Dave is anticlimactic compared to a VH reunion

    and will I support it?
    I'll do what I always have done in the past for both Dave and VH, tune in to see what it is and judge if it's worth supporting

    since all I want is a Van HALEN reunion-my only way to protest is to NOT buy anything that doesn't have Dave/Mike/Ed/Al on it

    most of the times both parties albums make it to some kind of westwood radio thing so I get a preview of what's on tap

    the only thing that works is the reunion with Roth
