    There was a guy called Stanhalen over at the PD saying there was new VH on napster. It was there when I was at work. Now the whole post is gone. Any answers out there?

    I know that some users have a song called Independent's Day which is really Here's Just What You Wanted from the club days, but I'm not aware of anything else that might be new.

    Sounds like another hoax. It's happened before when people simply change the name of an MP3 that they have to make you think it's new. I'll move this to the rumor mill.

    Probably a hoax, yeah. But it was pretty weird that the thread got pulled rather than closed, or at least I can't find it now. He claimed it wasn't listed as Van Halen but under a name you can find on the VH3 sleeve

    Weird kind of hoax if you ask me which you probably didn't

    I caught that as well. What you may have missed was the guy mentioning he has a band. My guess is that it was his attempt to get some free publicity for his band. I would guess he's posted the same thing at every band's website he can find, posting his song(s) under others' names.

    It should be interesting if we get word of a new VH single before it's released to radio or before a new album comes out. Wasn't Sammy basically complaining that his whole album was available for download even before the thing was released. We should all keep are eyes open for anything new that may pop up on Napster. How does this stuff get leaked anyways?

    Yeah, I d/l it. Not vh. Neither is blood from a stone(at least the one on Napster nowadays), or Mr. T's Gold.

    I contacted "StanHalen" before that thread was mysteriously deleted from the PD. He emailed me the name of the Napster server and the name to search for.

    Unfortunately, the Napster server was an invalid hostname (he didn't give an IP address, just a hostname), so I couldn't check it out.

    I've asked him for the proper address and await his reply!

    This goes out to Mario VH-

    (As per the question of how stuff gets leaked)-

    Anybody with any sort of credentials can end up with a promo copy of a single of album long before it is released. I work for a school newspaper at a relatively small university, and I've had my hands on several albums/singles that were not out at the time for the general public.

    Why does this matter? It matters because.....if and when a single comes out it means that the press has to get promo copies first (assuming its not some sort of huge surprise). This case might be an exception.

    However, this also means that, if a single is given to the press first, it very well would probably show up on Napster before you can buy it. This is because obviously some of the people who get the promo copies aren't big-name journlists and just want to let the fans hear the songs early.

    you just know that in this day and age, it will get leaked in whole or in part somewhere on the net. I had Without You two months before it was released.
