    This is probably total BS but a friend of mine who is an employee at WHJY in Providence told last night that he heard a rumor that The Waboritas as we know them will cease to exhist very soon.
    I hope Sammy keeps them together even if he does rejoin VH in the future. I remember him saying fairly recently that if he did rejoin VH, that he would find them a new singer and take them on the road as the opening act for VH.
    If he doesn't rejoin VH, I hope he still keeps them intact. They seem like a pretty tight unit.

    This could be true. The sales of his latest CD probably woke him up to the market potential of solo Sam in 2002. It doesn't make sense to have a full time band on the payroll when there isn't much demand for it to be heard. He can always hire one-off musicians in the future for his Cabo parties.

    Lay off the sales (or lack there of).

    I have said that I don't believe he intended for "not 4 sale" to be a huge hit. No single has been released and no video either.
    This latest rumor is most likely BS, but if there is any hint of truth to it, it might be because Sam is now doing something else with other people. (Van Halen or Planet Us)
    The Waboritas had nothing to do with the poor sales for the new album. How could they have when most people have never even heard a fucking song from it?

    eddymon- i am really not trying to be personally offensive to you (so don't read into this that way please) - but i have read every one of your posts in the rumor section in the last 6 months- and honestly, i cannot remember ONE of them panning out... if a couple ended up true- please remind me- and disregard this post-

    but honestly, when you have a bad track-record for un-substantiated rumors- you lose your credibility... to put it bluntly- you shouldn't post in the rumor section anymore- unless you ABSOLUTELY have credible evidence...

    we saw where the most recent MA rumor went to- and honestly- i felt embarrassed to be a fan because of it... how malicious is it to purposely create a false rumor just to get them to say something? people are fucking assholes... Mike shouldn't be wasting his time addressing stupid shit like that...

    so why perpetuate rumors that are most likely false?

    seriously- i don't mean this as a slam or bash against you personally... but with the proliferation of rumors due to lack of activity within VH in the last years- don't post unless there is some fact or real reason to suspect that a rumor may be true....

    again- not trying to piss you off- just wanted to speak my mind...

    just another frustrated VH fan- peace out...

    I understand your point, but this is not something that I came up with in my mind, Its just what a friend of mine heard. I stated in the initial post that it was most likely BS. But this is the Rumor Mill. I the slight chance that it is true, then this is the right place for it.

    The MA rumor started on VH1's message board that does not (to my knowledge) have a rumor mill. It was then posted here, in the rumor mill. I don't how far it went at other sites and just how far into the rock community it did go either. It must have generated alot of attention elsewhere for Mike to actually respond to it. Look what it took for Eddie to respond to the cancer story.

    They probably aren't disbanding but just on a hiatus (where have we heard that word before). Sammy is doing his Planet Us thing so without him, they're probably just going into hibernation.

    Well...For what it's worth I heard Jesse Harms is leaving. He's had enough. He and Sammy are still friends but he wants to retire to spend more time with his family.

    Actually, I heard he wanted to quit a while back, but Sammy talked him to staying a little longer. To do the Sam & Dave Tour.
    That's also why "Things h've Changed" was the first single. Why so much "keyboards" are on "Not 4 Sale" and why he released it so fast...It's kind of a tribute to Jesse from Sammy...

The ones made out of stone called "statues" -- occasionally came to life and rode off is a colonial cliche. How many more times do we need to hear about how the oppressive Raj's wore villainous black capes, crafted cunning plastic masks to impersonate people, and drained all the blood from their slaves so they could keep the fluid in bottles in their dungeons? I mean, YAWN!

    But if you're willing to sit through this dry sort of historical drama one more time -- or even just this dry historical review -- you will not be disappointed. In fact, some of you might just learn something they didn't teach you in school!-

    How's this for ironic.

    Here is yet again another rumor started by / heard from a "radio DJ". This isn't a slam on Eddymon...I'm just pointing out the irony here in that I used to be a radio DJ myself and found myself a bit upset by all the negativity toward radio people.

    HOWEVER, since I've left radio altogether, I can now see why everyone is so down on DJ's.

    Including myself.

    It's probably another BS rumor so it's gonna get itself shut down unless there is some actual PROOF that this has some merit.

    Eddymon, if this really needs to be reopened, PM me and I'll consider it (or OLO or Goo or Brett).

    However, for now, goodnight Linda.
