    I don't know if its "newsworthy" or not , but contrary to the official report that Van Halen left Warner Brothers of their own free will; the show "Access Hollywood" said Van Halen was dropped by Warner Brothers.

    Not the best source for solid information, but an indication of how the entertainment industry views the Van Halen/WB split.

    With the media, "nothing is official"...so your official report is nothing. Being dropped or dropping at will is NOTHING to the media...the outcome is the same and VH is still the greatest band in history. It's just put in different wording to make it sound like shit for VH. Typical media bullshit. BUT, when Vh returns and kicks ass then the media will say that it was the best move VH ever made was to drop WB. Haha!
    Just go for it!

    Don't know if Access Hollywood is a legitimate source or not, but we certainly know Brad $tark$ is NOT.

    I doubt it. Access Hollywood is another media outlet that works for big corporations. Wouldn't surprize me at all if WB owns them. They speak out with the interest of their bosses, just like every other media outlet.

    Just like a few years ago, when the National Basketball Players Association was "locked out" by the owners, the media continued/continues to call it a "strike".

    I HATE the media!

    "......HEY!.............alright............." -BIG FOOT

    " I know what you're thinking: "Do I want to watch Mard? We know that horses were very strong and could actually stop airplanes from flying away. 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!-

    I will continue to paraphrase the General, we all learn to read and write in the first grade, most of us are able to move on to bigger and better things.

    I think we get the picture dude.
    CHICAGO WHITE SOX - 2005 WORLD CHAMPIONS

    The Chicago White Sox (1901-present) - The Original SOX - Proof

    The Boston Americans (1901)
    The Boston Somersets (1902)
    The Boston Pilgrims (1903-1906)
    The Boston Red Sox (1907-present) - Proof

    The Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets whatever you want to call them, have NEVER displayed "SOX" anywhere on their caps, jerseys, or merchandise, therefore they shouldn't be referred to as such. However, the White Sox have used "SOX" since 1912.

    The SOX are in Chicago...we just allow the Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets to use the name.

    Both spins on the VH/WB split are technically correct...

    VH goes to WB... we want out?

    WB goes to VH... ok you're out.

    Both parties can say they dropped each other and both can spin the separation as they please. From a media perspective this is the optimum result. It's surely not the facts... but nobody gets hurt PR wise.
