    Sorry if this had been discussed in the past, but I was wondering if anyone knew anything about his departure?

    Did he did something wrong by the VH Bros? Or did they just know they weren't going to need him any time in the forseeable future?

    Since nothing was, and has been, happening with VH they saw no need to keep him around.

    Scotty was let go to pursue other interests, which he did. Who do you think was responsible for Sam and Dave getting together for this past tour?

    was that scotty's handiwork? i knew he left to pursue other stuff, but it looks like his heart is still close to VH and their fans then. he always seemed like a cool guy/ voice of sanity when he spoke out from inside the VH camp.

    Yes. He was the "silent partner". Even Sam spoke at one point and said how it was Scotty that brought them together.

    Basically what it amounted to is Van Halen doesn't need a tour manager if they aren't touring.

    Yep!
    And he was real cool about it. He said they paid him for a year when he didn't even do anything.
    I'm certain that when VH decide to start working again, they give Scotty a call...

    " 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?

    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!-

    They didn't "fire" him, they just gave him a lengthy, unpaid sabbatical.

    He'll be back.

    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.

    Scotty Ross shows up in the "Special Thanks To The Following" section of Sam's "Not For Sale" liner notes. After the last of the names, Sam adds, "cuz they believe."

    I wonder if Scotty has Ed or Al's ear in any of what might be going on behind the scenes these days...

    Sam's managed by (or at least was) by UberManager Irving Azoff. If you remember t5he Stern show where Dave was in studio, with Sam on the phone (ya know-the "coin toss") Dave said, when asked how it started: "I had my new assistant, Matt, call Irving Azoff, Sam's manager"

    Good point TJ#1. Sam thanks Azoff in the "Not 4 Sale" liner notes, and I've seen nothing that suggests the two aren't still working together. Here's hoping one or both make it to 5150 in '03.

    Maybe Scotty Ross will answer the door when they arrive or maybe let the whole group use his house as a neutral site.
