    Slightly different spin. What's with the Roth solo dates rumour, I've heard that one a couple of times now...one even named some venue called Stubbs in Austin, Texas for a March date

    It's hard to assume things are going soothly at Camp VH after this long.

    This seems to be a logical stab in the dark at the situation.

    I agree 100% with Hellohawk. How could things be going well for a year and a half with absolutely NO official word? Some of the best VH music created was done in 2-3 weeks! Obviously, i don't expect a reunion disc to be rushed THAT hastily, but c'mon.......pick it up a notch! NONE of us are getting any younger.

    Y'know, I have a boss who tells us this phrase a lot and in this situation (ie: the continual waiting for VH), it seems to hold true.

    My boss says "if you don't give people ANY feedback directly, they'll usually make up their own...which is usually negative"

    Just say SOMETHING for Pete's sake...the longer we wait, the more less likely I feel about things.

Y'know, usually Ed doesn't sing this part of the song and when he does tonight for the first time, you'll find out why!"

    They probably want this reunion to last more than just 1 album and tour.

    They did/do have alot of differences to work out as well as hurt feelings/egos.

    If they were/are working with a therapist/counselor, then these things do take time. Thats why we have a delay.

    F.U.C.K. was released in 1991, Balance was released in 1995. Thats 4 years folks, and they never changed singers during that time.
    Sure RH,RN came out, but that was a live album that didn't take much work to out out.

    Here's a timeline for you incase you forgot:

    November 5th, 1999 (I believe) Gary left the band.

    December 1999, Dave's tour ended.

    It is now March 2001. No word from either parties.

    Its been 15 months between Dave's tour ending and now.

    Time is needed to work out the above mentioned subjects, as well as write songs.
    The record them, Mix them.
    (not to mention, find a producer, take care of management issues,)

    I strongly believe that at this point in their careers and lives, that all 4 men want this to be the best it possibly can be.
    Lets try (as hard as it may be at times) to continue being patient and we will all be very happy with the results.
    Even the Sammy fans will be happy.

    ENOUGH IS ENOUGH EDDIE, ALEX, MIKE & DAVE.

    That's not quite true. VH recorded the first albums very quickly, but there was a reason for that. They'd been playing and polishing those songs for years in the clubs. Many of them went through more than one re-write.

    It's been less than 15 months since Dave's tour ended, Eddymon. He played a couple of dates into mid-Jan 2000.

    Well,
    I hope there's a college course out there waiting to do a case study on our favorite band and the events/issues they're working through. It could be long enough for 101 and 102 sessions.

    Dave and Ed = Oil and vinegar...may not mix, but sure are good together
    Peace

    Other problems have surfaced in the business arena. Negotiations involving Roth/Van Halen deals are no picnic, and they've also had to unravel themselves from former manager Ray Danniels (who allegedly wrote himself into a situation where he gets paid whether he manages the band or not).

    Ray just won't go away, the asshole

    Did Stubb say his famous line? "I'm da cook." I always laugh at that. Cool that you were there. RIP Stubb. Out.

    An offline version of "Van Halen 101" would make it onto my course list in no time.
