    Sometime around early June of this year, an old high school friend that I haven't heard from in years, tracked down my e-mail address and mailed me. After mailing each other back and forth a few times, Van Halen came up as a topic. My friend was always a big VH fan, and he told me that one of the guys he served with in the Navy claimed to know Alex Van Halen. The guy told my friend that R.D. had been fired after the band found out that he had somehow arranged things so that he (R.D.) actually owned a piece of the band name "Van Halen". This guy told my buddy that VH was suing R.D. over this and that the band couldn't legally release an album (without paying R.D. big bucks) until things were settled. My friend told me that the guy he heard this from was known as a big bullshitter and we both agreed it sounded like a load of crap. I never thought much of it, but the Ray Danniels topic started by "Buddy" in the main forum, made me recall my friend e-mailing me about this. I still think it sounds like bullshit, but I thought I'd throw it out there anyway. Remember guys, I'm not saying this is true." A friend of a friend of a friend said..." get's on my nerves just as much as anyone else's, but I guess this ones no worse than many of the other crappy rumours out there.

    Whether this is bullshit or not, it's actually a story which would explain the whole silence/lack of info saga pretty well.
    Even down to the lack of publicity for the remasters - though WB releasing in the first place them suggests there would be tension between band and label. Which there probably is....or something

    Will we ever know what happened with Ray ?
    I cannott wait to see who is the bands' manager. I know that Sammy did not like Ray ...... I thought Dave had fired BIG ED ?
    I still think that this has been the "sticking" point all along, finding a good manager could take some time !

    IMO ONLY !!!

    I swear to god, we'll know what the hell really happened to Jimmy Hoffa before we learn what really happened between Ray Daniels and VH.

    Who knows? Wouldn't surprize me one bit though.

    Might explain the whole "Van Halen with David Lee Roth" thing...

    The CD will not be finalized and printed until it is known if 'Van Halen with David Lee Roth' is necessary or not.
    SRO is no longer managing VH, regardless of their answering machine.

    Hey AllSoup, you shoulda stuck with your first instinct....the guy was full of shit. The one thing Ray Danniels got a piece of that he had absolutely no right to was a percentage of the sales of albums 1 - 6. He wasn't even around when they were recorded, but he put himself in a position to make money off them anyways. Hopefully, that situation has been cured by the release of the remasters. Makes the old catalog worthless to him. Paybacks are a bitch

    I hear you, MichelleWms. My biggest problem with this rumour is that if anyone had been sued, the court documents would be up for grabs to the general public and someone would have grabbed them by now.

    You know what? I never thought of that! You're absolutely right!

    Now I'm wondering if Ray has been fired?

    Just a legal matter: if two parties SETTLE OUT OF COURT, there would be no court documents available to the public. Just a thought, not sure of its relevance, if any.

    One way or another, he's out.

    If you look at the liner notes on the remasters, there's NO management listed at all. "No news is good news"? I don't know about that but "No manager is better than THAT manager" for sure.

    That could be a slight possibility. Slight, but possible.

    RD is/was Alex's brother-in-law right. I am assuming everyone knows this.

    Well Alex and his 3rd wife (RD's sister) are no more. They are on the outs. Divorcing/divorced....

    That could be causing some issues somewhere.....

    you never know...........
