    I'm posting this in here in The Rumour Mill because I'm not about to go and give out "my
    source" details. I have to respect the fact that people's jobs are involved. Out of a long standing respect for all the members of VH I am not even going to spill the long and gory details tthat have left me with this conclusion, but it's time we faced some very real facts.

    Van Halen, as a band, is dead.

    Neither Sammy or Dave will be joining the band for anything other than an incredibly
    uncomfortable R&R Hall of Fame night show, whatever year that will be (let's not fool ourselves that the rest of the industry truly give a shit enough about the band to cram them into the Hall of Fame the first year they're eligible...). For our sake I hope that night comes sooner than later. I hope we all get another chance to see Eddie on stage, whenever and wherever, but I have my doubts at this point. There are people on this board who know that these things are true. There are also a bunch of bullshit non-artists with too much time on their hands sitting in their trailer parks ,laid off from their Burger King day jobs, bored of figuring out that "one wicked Dokken riff" who feel an incessant need to keep posting " It's gonna happen!!!! My brother who knows the guy who folds chairs at the local amphitheatre told me so!!!"

    I do not doubt that Dave, a complete whack job but a mild case in comparison to what the Van Halen Brothers have become, gave it his best shot for a chance at a reunion while still covering his own ass financially. I have no doubt as well that Sammy, an awe inspiring oppurtunist and a hell of a buisnessman at the least, is trying to milk some cash out the VH name and fulfill his dream of being inducted into the rock & roll hall of fame ( don't kid yourselves into thinking
    that this summer's tour was anything other than a disgruntled albeit hopeful warmup
    ) but I don't think anyone ,including myself, can fully grasp the magnitude of psychological and physical dysfunction fluent up on Howdy Doody Hill.

    I have been a consistent fixture here and at the Dome & I think everyone here can vouch for my lack of "hey guess what" bullshit. This is for real and sad.

    It's time to stop being angry because the band's not selling our youth back to us, and time to have some compassion for at least one seriously ill person.

    Plenty of non existent bands have BBS's to discuss their love of what once was. I suggest we embrace that model as our own and treasure the Cinco De Mayo's at Peppers, the No-Holds Barbi-Dvd's, the fluoride enriched Tequila ,and god willing, the occasional sit in jams at the Hollywood House of Blues.

    The bullshit rumors are truly becoming morbid at this point folks.

    But feel free to prove me wrong.

    Peace.

    If what you say is true why hasn't the band officially announced they're finished?

    Willyum,

    your story is worse than my "Jeff Scott Soto" rumor.

    Not you, not me or anyone else on this board knows for sure what the hell is up with the VH bro's.

    WILLYM = Bullshit non-artist with too much time on his hands sitting in his trailer park ,laid off from their Burger King day jobs, bored of figuring out that "one wicked Dokken riff" who feel an incessant need to keep posting " It's gonna happen!!!!

    dude, enough of the bs, i hate when people say they have a source and dont give it up.
    if jobs were at risk why the hell would they tell you knowing that you might say something to someone or post it here for us to see?
    no one knows for sure except ed, al, and mike on what they may or may not do. when they feel the time is right they will tells us whats up.
    van halen shall return. what you think is nothing might be something after all.

    Awright.

    I hope that everyone I know and everything I know is wrong.

    I don't think so though.

    If it's (VH) over, then it's over. Big deal! I look at sites like this as entertainment. Hell, you could say I'm still getting something out of them by coming here every few days. If something happens with the band, GREAT! If not, oh well.

    If these posts bother people and they can't understand why people post the shit that they do, GO SOMEWHERE ELSE! I think most members here can weed through the BS, don't you? (This applies to all fast food workers and people who live in trailers....wait a minute, I won't stoop to ripping on people because of where they work or live. Strike that last comment!) I have never been offended by any of the posts here. (I thought that whole "Bonn" thing was funnier than hell a few years back).

    Lets face it, this is the only VH I've had in a while. (Except for a few Dave and Sammy shows.) I like this place. Always have, always will. Kind of like my feelings for VH! Lets all nibble on the Prozac salt lick and have fun here.

    P.S., Sorry if I offended anyone. MO.

    You're right Mo. That was wrong of me to make fun of people's jobs and hovels.

    I apologize.

    I just wanted to share something with everyone who keep getting their hopes up time and time again.

    I'm sorry this was as ambiguous as it was, and it probably would have been better for me to not say anything. I just got tired of people getting their hopes up for no reason. I'm tired of getting my own hopes up.... I fucking love the band.....

    I'm sure the facts will eventually come out.

    Just remember Rex Jackson's post at Yahoo Groups.

    That's all I'm saying.

    & at least I didn't post it under a fucking pseudonym.

    I did like the part about "learning that wicked Dokken riff"

    .........because I'm hopeful for a return of the Mighty Van Halen.......I didn't care for the rest of the post......
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    So who do you know? Be vauge if you want but you could drop us a bit of an idea. Let me guess, the friend, of a cousin, who's biker bitch went down on a peanut vender during a Reds game, who spilt his beer on the seprated conjoined twin of the fold out chair guys home-room teachers aide right?
