    Good grief, lighten up, Francis.

    And as far as us "giving" them great lives, if they didnt become virtuosos who were extremely creative and wrote all time great tunes, there wouldn't be a band for us to be fans of.

    Yes, it would be a great gesture, don't think anyone says otherwise. It's just unlikely to ever happen, which is unfortunate.

    Given how close we are, if i legally married Squalen (cause why not my life is too simple as is) would i then be entitled as a spousal rite to also set opinions straight? I am not up on cali law.

    If not then forget it I will simply delete my posts.

    Van Halen doesn't owe us anything, but it sure would be nice if they cared about their own music and legacy as much as we do.

    Grohl is playing tonight on that iheart living room concert that Elton John put together, right? I mean we'd all love for Ed to play Eruption from 5150, smile and wave hello but that ain't happening for many reasons. He's no longer relevant for one but also like what someone said, there's nothing to promote.

    Dave would probably be more likely and willing to ask in. Stay Frosty, or Could This Be Magic acoustically from his home studio would be awesome.

    Trust me my friend, none of this bothers me. I speak fluent hyperbole.

    I didn’t say they didn’t deserve everything they earned. And I DO NOT believe they owe anyone anything.

    Again, it’d be awesome if they’d upload something never seen/heard for the fans during this Effin’ shutdown. I’m not “holding my breath” or waiting around, I promise.

    2. Release something from the archives that’s never been seen/heard. Something from 1981 if you need suggestions 😎

    3. Post something letting us know what you’ve been up to.

    4. Post a cover song that the three of you enjoy playing.

    5. Something/anything to show a little appreciation for those who’ve given you a great life.
    I mentioned something along these lines once we were all put on lockdown. There are a few musicians doing it.

    Van Halen wasn't doing anything pre end of the world though. The sky falling isn't going to suddenly make them want to do something.

    No snark.

    True motivation comes from within. The only way I suspect we’ll ever hear from Ed & Al again is if/when they need the money. Last I heard, they are both still happily married ...

    Or maybe if Wolf wants another pay day in a couple years maybe that'll get Ed off the couch. Probably a one in ten shot it happens

    The brothers have been essentially practicing social distancing and sheltering in place for the better part of 25 years. I don't see why hoping they could do a little something to put a smile on thousands of fans faces during this brutal time is a big ask.
