    this is the first time i enter the rumor mill, never visited this one before... what happen is that i live i brasil and it has something growing around here...

    we have here a huge festival called Rock in Rio... in January 2001, it'll be its 3rd version... (1st 1984 and 2nd 1992 i guess)

    this festival is known to present the top rock artists (queen, scorpions, whitesnake, acdc, ozzy and many others have played on its earlier versions)

    AOL will be the sponsor for this next event... they are saying that the names of the bands will be anounced in october... and van halen is one of the top picks.

    as far as i remember AOL bought warner some months ago...

    it's really something i wish and believe could happen.

    Hmmmm....
    Quite possible for VH to rock in Rio.
    Thats right Time Warner did merge with AOL so there very well could be a connection.
    Where can we see this from AOL?

    Uncle Ted:

    For those of us unable to understand Portugeuse (did I spell that right?), can you put the actual specific link that mentions VH?

    there is no links leading to vh... there are rumors spreading around radio stations and from local tvs that are saying that vh is one of the artists that will possibly join the list of performers.

    i'll see if i can find a link to an english version.

    Hey Eddymon, try this bro:

    - go to http://babelfish.altavista.digital.com/translate.dyn

    -Click the dot for 'URL' and paste the URL of the page in there

    -Select 'portugese to English'

    -away ya go

    Should translate the page into english - it won't be perfect, but should be able to make some sense outta it!It wont translate graphics either, so any 'buttons' will stay the same

    A little zen... Headed your way...

    Goo:

    Cool link. Basically, it looks like there is a on-line pole for people to vote for the bands they'd like to see. Obviously, this is no indication they will play. Betcha any money the band with the most votes is Queen, whether defunct or not. What say you, Uncle Ted?

    i say what i said before...

    this is a rumor... it's going around radio stations and some local tv networks... i never said it would have anything on the official site of the event...

    it's just a rumor that's around rock fans in brazil... nothing has been said from AOL/warner... nothing, just a rumor...

    I had a dream last night that I was watching MTV News and they interviewed Ed and he looked like he did in 1996. He said next Monday at 3:30 and they showed him in the new video! Pisser!

    This may be the only good thing to come out of AOL!

    Yay for huge media conglomerates!

    I remember the Rockin Rio from back in the early 90's. MTV made it a big weekend special and Megadeth kicked ass. Just my 2 cents.
