    VAN FAN-TASIC NEWS!?!

    Hey all... I had to add the "5150" onto my user name since my old account somehow got squashed after this site went through all of those technical changes awhile ago. Anyway, those of you who remember me from the time that the rumors started flowing about the 2004 Sammy/VH reunion know that I was pretty much on point with all of the info that I wrote here (i.e. first to tell you all that the 2004 kickoff tour date was in Greensboro NC, first person to post the audio link to "It's About Time," etc), so hopefully you'll believe me this time around as well. Now onto business...

    Things are looking pretty good for the Dave reunion. It's really just a matter of how much of a money split that Dave would get for the tour (most likely to happen this coming summer if all comes together). We already know that Ed is down with Dave rejoining the band, and Dave has been quoted positively numerous times about a reunion as well, so that's definitely not the problem. If both sides (read: lawyers) can come up with a fair agreement, all systems should be a go. And what about Mikey you ask? Unless Mikey has changed his name to "Wolfie" and cut down his age down to 15 years old, don't count on him to be on stage with Ed, Dave, and Al if this tour does happen. Mike nearly wasn't a part of the 2004 reunion tour because Ed didn't approve of his continuing relationship with Sammy ever since Sam was booted in 1996 (not to mention not wanting to give Mike the money cut he deserved for that tour), so now with Sam out of the VH picture completely, Mike can officially be considered a Wabo.

    As far as the Hall Of Fame induction goes, you should plan on celebrating soon. It will be THE highlight of the night obviously. Not sure if they would actually perform together, it's probably a little too early for that, but they (Dave, Ed, Al) would be there in person to accept the induction for sure. Remember that Sammy would not be a part of this induction anyway since his first album with VH was released in 1986, and you all know that a "band" can't be inducted until 25 years after their debut album (hmm, maybe the academy was confused and thought that "Fair Warning" was their debut? ). And sadly enough, Mike probably wouldn't attend for obvious reasons.

    This will probably go into the Rumor Mill, but I figured that since it was my first post in awhile, I'd give it a shot in Main Discussion.


    More info to come when I get it...

    I don't think that's how it works. It officially was not a different band and Sammy was a part of that band. What if the band was able to get along during and following the 2004 tour and actually created an album or went on another tour and was still together. Would it make any sense whatsoever to say he wouldn't be inducted because he joined in 86? So I think you're wrong there.

    I did read something, somewhere that the official ballot for VH included Sam but not Gary.

    I was speaking from a technical point (25 year rule) and the fact that Sammy is again no longer with the band, but you are correct in what you stated. If Sammy was still with the band, he would be there for the induction. Sorry for the confusion (and for making me look bad in my "big return" ).

    I hope Wolfie works in some licks from 'Big Bottom' during his bass solo/exploration...

    Hmm.

    No, I think Sam and Mike will be there at the ceremony.

    Are you certain that's really you, Van Fan? You sound different.

    If VH is in, Sammy is in with them. It's not even a debate, and I don't mean as to whether he deserves to be in or not....the HOF has said basically that it's Dave, Sammy, Eddie, Alex, and Mike. Gary won't be in.
    I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em. -

    How stupid and yet so "Fatal Attraction". Did EVH feel that MA was his boyfriend or possession or something?

    I guess The Golden Rule was absent during EVH's upbringing. What goes around comes around.
    DLR, circa 2001:

    "Hey this is David Lee Roth and I promised you the news and here's the news.

    About a year ago myself and the great Van Halen band played together once or twice and it sounded amazing!

    In the following several months Edward and I, Edward Van Halen and me, David Lee Roth, created some of the most amazing, phenomenal - the hands fell off the clock ladies and gentleman and we wrote three astonishing tunes.

    That was last July (2000) and since then I haven't been up to the studio, we haven't really been in touch and we haven't made any music, but I am holding forth, I'm in the shape of my life and I got the high note - I'm ready to go.

    And I am positive for the future ladies and gentleman.

    Stay tuned and I'll tell you what the future brings..."

    I don't think this is anything that we haven't heard before.

    I agree. They would probably feel too odd standing up there with a bunch of guys who hate them.
