    I'm sittin' here tryin' to imagine a press conference announcing that Dave IS back as Van Halen's lead singer. I'm tryin' to imagine Ed, Al and Mike standin' next to Dave smilin'. As much as I want to, I can't. I got to thinkin' what if the guys were able to put up with one another long enough to do an album but no tour because they just can't stand one another?

    Gang, how would you feel if they announced a new album but decided not to tour. This is just a hypothetical scenario, so don't tear my head off.

    It wouldn't bother me too much. I just need some new music!

    As much as I would love to see the original line up put on a kick ass tour, I would rather have something than nothing.

    I would feel like it was 1996 all over again, but I would be glad to have new music.
    Not satisfied, but pacified.

    I guess it's a matter of taking whatever they are prepared to give. It seems crazy that they would release an album but not tour at all, but of course crazier things have happened on Planet Van Halen.

    It seems to me that if it doesn't work out with Dave, Van Halens' career may very well be over. Given that, and the hypothetical notion of them not being able to stimulate record sales with a tour, maybe they should just release the album as part of a career spanning box set.

    Bet ya didn't see that coming, did ya?

    That would never happen. Both Ed and Dave seem hellbent on touring behind anything they put out. But if it did happen, like Wolfman said, I'd be pacified, but not satisfied.

    I would take the new music without a tour - I wouldnt be happy about it and I dont think it would sell as well as it would with a tour to spark sales.

    I would feel somewhat shorted but I would take it.

    I do feel VH might be shooting off another toe by doing this.

    EUX4Life, I agree that both Ed and Dave would wanna go out and tour in support of a new record. However, the reality is that there is the little business of 16 years of yellin', screamin', name callin' and fist waving. To tell ya the truth I think Dave could do it, but somehow I can't see Ed puttin' up with it.

    Getting an album would be great, but getting some new tunes and a tour would be the "best of both worlds."

    Any of us would bitch and moan and talk about the death of Van Halen if they did that. Touring is what musicians do. Flash in the pan rock stars make albums and don't tour and Ed has said it enough.....he's a musician not a rock star.

    Come to think of it, The Beatles put out some of their best stuff after they stopped touring in 1966. The next year they put out Sgt. Pepper. HMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!

    Can't see that happening. If they put out an album, they'd have to tour. It's what rock stars do!

    They can release the new album with Dave and tour with Sammy.
