    I really can't understand why the mighty VH can allow this bogus website to continue.Not only do we get zero new news on what the band is doing right now,we get endless bullshit questions about the past.I really want VAN HALEN to be about the present and the future not what they were doing on the 10 of november 1981!!!!!

    Word, pkjr.

    I'm with you on this. But don't expect a change anytime soon.

    The "official" site is "officially" AFU.

    Don't know if anyone's said it to you, but...

    Welcome to VHForums.

    Glad to have you.

    The official site seems more like the Peavey official site--not as much band info as you would like, and instead "The Wolfgang Report" is the main feature.

    van-halen.com definitely doesn't seem like much of a Van Halen site anymore; instead, it's more of a marketing tool so Peavey can sell more Wolfgangs.

    And while that does have something to do with Van Halen, I would much rather see more actual band news, you know?

    Oh well. Welcome to the Links, pkjr. You'll be glad you dropped in.

    by calling the site "official" means it only puts up "official" news from the band... the band hasnt said a word in a year or whatever, so the site doesnt change much... it's van halen's fault why "their" site sucks... if you don't have any news, there's no news to report...

    it only sucks if it doesn't have what you think should be there.

    there are fans out there who'd want a webcam in eddie's toilet, so to them the site will always suck for not having that.

    i agree that the site is rather stale presently, but what should we expect?

    we aren't going to find out jack shit until VH is comfortable with the situation.

    Some people seem to think that the word "official" means better. We all know where we go for our VH news. We go to the Van Halen News Desk(www.vhnd.com). And we all know where we discuss the news that is posted there.

    Finally I think it's true ! Official doesn't mean that is better !

    I prefer the VHND site .. .every week updates , caring of us fans !
    Last week , for example , on VHND I was reading the concert reviews of teh VHIII tour , on the old stuff on the site !

    The official message board is cool , but too confused ... it's difficult knowing well a guy or a poster ... the threads disappear in 2 days !
    Don't know what outa think !

    I finally prefer the Links , for the simple fact that all here are friendly and confortable ... all the guys knows each others ... It's like a family !

    I'll not be surprised if one day this site will came the Official one !

    Ya know ... I have found all I need about Van Halen here ... and not only this ! ...
    I got about 3000 posts here ... maybe this mean my preferences !

    The official site is a waiste of my fucking time. I wanna go somewhere and get some good dirt and gossip. If you wanna get absolutely fucking nothing than go to the official site. Or should I call it the Peavey site. Is all Eddie Van Halen cares about is promoting his Wolfgangs? It sure as fuck looks like it to me. Eddie should stop worrying about lining his fucking pockets and more about his die-hard fans. That greedy fucking bastard better start showing me and you guys some respect. We deserve it. We are the reason that Eddie is so fucking rich and is able to sit on his ass and drive his expensive cars. He should have the RESPECT to keep us informed. Eddie Van Halen has no respect for anyone but himself. He makes me fucking sick. "Hey Eddie! Wake up and smell my foot up your ass buddy!"Peace out Eddie no respect Van greedy Peavey fucker Halen.
