    I'm asking simply because, apparently somebody at the PD, who has some sort of inside source, is basically saying something is about to go down. It's not Brad, but someone that goes by the name of, "Chris". I'm not a member of the PD, but I do lurk and it seems that there is some excitment happening. Now, this "Chris" must have some credit with the goats at the dome, because no one is flamming his ass at the moment. It seems this guy or gal has some pull, either with, 1. Brad, 2. WB or 3. Van Halen themselves.
    I'm not buying the hype yet and taking everything with a grain of salt, but just thought I'd bring it up. Can anyone here shed some kind of light on this guy and what's going on?

    The wait continues.......

    AJW, the thread is found at, "The Full Mugambi" and my bad on the guy's name. The guy making the post is, Shawn Michael and his thread opens as, "Big Al in Bocephus mode yet". This is prolly no big deal, just wondering if anyone here knows anything about this guy and what he's talking about. Some at the dome appear to know this guy and it seems he's not getting flammed....YET!!

    Happy Daze

    and sorry for the confusion.

    I saw this too, dont read into it too much. Until we hear someone from the band talking, I just take it all in, then laugh about it.

    Nothing wrong with some wishful thinking though.

    I peeped it out.

    BUT- I noticed a few posts down, that the same person was asking Brad if the band was aware of the fans frustrations etc. And he was asking seriously, like he didnt know...ya know?

    That tells this sluth that he knows neither Brad OR the band. That leaves warner bros. as the last main lead possibility, and we know that WB knows shit about the band so far.

    I say, dont let this get your panties bunched. The signs point to bullshit.

    Yeah, I was kinding of thinking Bullshit also, but as of lately, the Dome has been one large bowl angry soup. Can't say I blame em, but ppl have been cutting thoats over there. Anyways, thought it was cool read, and really happy to see some of the goats at the dome, laughing and happy again. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img] [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]
    We'll see.......

    Someone official posting on the PD, as a member of Van Halen, etc. Would Be known, and would want to be known. That's All I have to say. It would say something like "band member" underneath their username.

    Someone else claiming to be, 99.9% of the time isn't.

    The one thing I can say with confidence is that Van Halen's window of opportunity is closing quick.

    If they are going to either announce something or show up somewhere, the time must be pretty soon. Because people are really not starting to care anymore, thats the feeling I get here and everyone I talk to about them.

    I hope that something is about to break, but I can't hold my breath that long.

    It'll probably be that Warner Bros. has just released Van Halen from their roster due to laziness which equals lack of sales.

    Why is anybody even considering that this guy has an ounce of credibility? I'm surprised anybody bit on his thread. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    Having just checked out the Dome and more importantly the topic if the band realizes the fan's frustration.

    And Brad's reply was "yes, I keep them informed"

    That said, maybe the guys don't check out their own site for the fans. If Brad keeps them informed. What the hell else would they be doing?
    Its kind of a slap in the face that they have someone else stay in touch with their fans and not themselves.

    Exactly! That is what I tried to say over at the dome 6 months ago. Most other bands stay in some sort of constant touch with their fans. Not VH! So when I posted that at the dome I got all kinds of backlash from the sheep over their. So I haven't really gone over their since then.

    Probably because Brad hasn't shot anything down.

    That and we're dying to have any news - to the point that we still fall for "obvious" loads of crap.
