    My First Post.
    With the future of the band unclear, and so many fans disgruntled at the lack of any offical news from the band, I would like to drop in with my perspective.

    Van Halen is about the music. It has been and always will be. Bands, as people, change. Singers may come and go but if the music can connect with you on a spiritual level, then it is all good. I liked all of Roth's stuff and most of Sammy's and Gary's. The structure of the songs may have changed from VH1 to VH111, but the music can still make you close your eyes and feel every note. I would still like to have the body I had when I was 25, but just becuase I look diferent know, I'm still the same person.

    My point is, if the band calls it quits, hire's a fourth singer or get's back with one of the previous singers, I will still sit back, put on those headphones, close my eyes and get lost in the music.
    When you hear a song, it can make you remember what you felt, where you were and who you were with the first time you heard it. That's what music can do.<br /><br />When I get into you, get into me...

    Great sentiment and welcome!

    You know what the great thing is about Van Halen is that there's something for everyone and a track for every mood. I stopped listening to the Sammy era stuff for awhile and recently went back and pulled out Balance and was blown away by Ed on that CD. He is just the most amazing musician I've ever heard and they will always be my band.
    Could this be magic?

    Welcome to the board, Music Heals.

    I'm glad that you can see both sides of the situation. It's hard for us fans to not know what is going on but we still respect their privacy.

    Also my first post,
    That was a great post Music Heals, the thing about great music, especially Van Halen is that the music is timeless and acts like a soundtrack to our lives. Whenever we hear that special song, special for whatever reason is that we are taken back to that moment that made it special in the first place.
