    I got this off of the DLRML. I know this has to be complete bullshit but I had to share.......


    >All right people, I just got this off the >Van Halen Mailing List! I almost
    >had a shit fit, but told myself that this >new rumor was just someone blowing
    smoke up my ass (God I hope it's all Bullshit). Here it is folks, read it
    and weep. TK, can you finally shed some light on this? Say it isn't so! I'm
    playing Frisbee with all the Van Hagar disks in my collection!

    From: ???? radiosucks@my-deja.com Group: ???? alt.music.van-halen
    Subject: ???? news... sorry it can't be official yet. Date: ???? Fri,
    Aug 18, 2000, 8:38pm

    There is a very big secret that none of you know??? I could lose my job
    if word got out that I broke the news, so I'm using a deja account.
    For the past ten months Van Halen have been working with DLR, they have
    produced 12 quality songs working closely with producer Ted Templeman in
    various studios across the US. All of us in-the-know at Warner Bros.
    Records were very excited when we got our first listen, this was about
    four months ago. We began to prepare for a double disc-album release
    (one of classic VH live and the other of new material) and tour when
    last minute details got in the way. DLR would not sing songs from any of
    the post-1984 Van Halen albums (including the two best of songs he
    performed). Dave made this known upfront, but everyone figured it would
    work its self out; it didn't.
    Now here's the big secret: To resolve this issue Warner Bros. contacted
    and began negotiating with Sammy Hagar to join the tour. At first we
    were going to let Sammy's band work as the opening act and then let
    Sammy come back out to sing his VH songs. This idea didn't set well.
    Hagar wasn't happy with the deal and said he couldn't do two sets for an
    entire tour. We finally worked it so that Sammy could bring his new
    material to VH. It wasn't easy but we got the band to agree to this on
    the notion of breaking all the rules and doing something completely
    different.
    What you will get (on October 3rd) is a double-CD set of new Roth and
    Hagar Van Halen. The Roth material has been produced by Ted Templeman,
    most of the Hagar songs have been produced by Andy Johns and Ted. The
    results are really fantastic, the music and lyrics are on par with the
    best material Van Halen has created in the past.
    What will follow next year is a double header tour with Hagar opening
    the show and Roth closing. We're planning on three hours and twenty
    minutes of Van Halen music, played to a stadium crowd.
    Warner Bros. is aware of the status Van Halen holds in rock music, and
    they want to help them make history. And we're going to do it!

    Not to be negative, but that sounds like an old rumor that's been rehashed.

    Although this would be wonderful, it is too good to be true. It won't happen.

    I think it would be a blast, too - Unfortunately, it's been shot down more times than whatti has tried to sneak into this place and irritate people.

    Brad Starks was quick to shoot this down. He said it was so far fetched that it was funny.

    Here's what Brad had to say about it. Notice what he says about Sammy being onstage with VH. :

    ...although I'm sure we all are still regretting that that Mother Theresa/Mettalica project never got off the ground.

    Seams as though we have run into some what of a lull in new info, so people are going to make up stuff and some of us will buy into it because of VH's silence.

    This could all be solved with a simple statement by VH.
