    Why bother for them to continue with that farse of a web-site?
    They have nothing new to add anymore.

    They are finished, Eddie thanks for the memories, Alex where did you go?
    Mike, Run away from them now and don't look back.

    Now that Sam & Dave are touring and are trying to build a possible friendship, no reunion is gonna happen. I am not wasting my time with Eddie anymore.
    To me VHLINKS is now called Sam & Dave Links.

    If Scotty Ross is really responsible for the Dave-Sammy pairing, $tark$ is probably trying to con him into being the webmaster of the new www.daveandsammy.com website.

    Does everyone here really think they are trying to build a friendship?

The baseball player says his cup is definitely full. MacGuyver says he can build a powerful explosive with it. The psychoanalyst says the cup is your mother. The punk sitting next to you also says the cup is your mother. The romance novelist says the cup is a willing receptacle to the wild gushing torrents of pure passion from the hard chiseled urn.

    Why bother? Are you kidding me? What kind of a fan are you? It is a website that's just chock full of info. For example, did you know that the numbers on the blackboard in the "Hot For Teacher" video correspond to "Holy Shit" backwards? Or what the painting looks like that made up the cover of Fair Warning? Or that "Top Jimmy" was written about an L.A. based rock group called Top Jimmy and the Rhythm Pigs?

    And of course, the Pleasure Dome is coming back a little later down the road, bigger and better than ever. Therefore you just have to check every day to make sure you don't miss the grand reopening!

    You said it best, Lou. The website should just be a splash screen that says, "No news is good news". That's it.

    Although this does make one ponder if the DLRarmy site will need to be re-missioned... As a historically anti-Sammy:Hold the Cheese site this new found business relationship/public friendship act somewhat undermines their their gig... Kinda a shame given the unique personality the place has built for itself...

    I like your idea [img]smile.gif[/img]

    I maintain that the ONLY reason they have that website anymore is so that no one else takes the domain name. It may have been a great promotional tool 4 years ago, but there's no purpose for it now.

    You're a mod there, right? Does Brad $tark$ or the band honestly have any intention of reopening the place? Everyone here's assuming that they're not opening it until they become a band again, which is most likely never at this point.

    How is van-halen.com different from any other corporate website? It's all slick packaging and no substance.

    Go to www.x-files.com once and tell me they have a lot of useful information there compared to the content of v-h.com.
