    What happened to this site?

    What happened? Did everyone keel over?

    There are more people listening to the Tokyo live album than are on this site...and THAT is difficult to do!

    Good point.

    I've come back and have been posting recently. But really it does seem like a ghost town.

    Maybe some of us got old and don't have time to sit here and chat anymore. LOL

    Even Disc One? Whoa.

    No news, nothing to talk about, and when there is news, it just more than likely is annoying disappointing or brings out the annoying people. When the John 5 collaboration drops, Maybe it'll get noisier here.

    When Ed's dead, people will come over, posting how gutted they are and how EVH is going to be missed. All bullshit, of course.
    I say he won't see 2020, so things are looking good for Rotharmy.com!!
    Unless, of course, nobody gives a shit anymore for this message board. Which wouldn't surprise me in the least, with social media and all that...

    The site represents what the artist has been delivering... not a lot. There's that direct effect in play... artist sits around on his lazy ass, fans find other ways to amuse themselves. Dave and the Van Halen boys missed a key concept in the 21st century. People aren't patient or forgiving enough to bother with waiting 3-5 years for something new. They don't even remember what happened 3 months ago...

    A few notable former members have passed on but the rest of the jackasses and amazing personalities are still making life interesting wherever they are.

    You get out of it what you put into it... I challenge anyone reading this... Step it up while it's still here!!

    When you consider that this site has been up since...what, 2004?

    And what have Van Halen from 2004 to today?

    A tour with Hagar.

    Another Best Of with some new Hagar tracks.

    A tour with Roth.

    A studio album, half of which was reworked 35 year old demos.

    A tour with Roth.

    A live album.

    Another tour with Roth.

    For Dave, you can add on the stint as Stern's terrestrial radio replacement, some solo shows and...Van Strummin' (?)

    For 15 years, that's a meager output, and most of THAT output was concentrated on performing the back catalog (and I have as yet to hear ANYONE claim that any of the tours with Roth were anywhere near as good as when CVH was killing it). As Zoo says, people have lives to lead (one has to do SOMETHING to fill in the years waiting for the Van Halens and Dave to do...anything).

    Indifference breeds apathy. Personally, I still enjoy coming here more to read what the longtime site members are up to than out of any Van Halen-inspired reason: that band has - let's be honest - pretty much over since they blew the Roth reunion in 1996. Roth went on to do some interesting stuff after 1996 - mostly between 1996 and 2003 - but Van Halen...yeah, they finally got their shit together and got it up for a few decent-to-good tours with Dave, but I'm not mistaking what that actually means.

    I think I haven’t posted as much here in recent years because I think I’ve completely run out of ways to voice my disappointment in my favorite band. When Ed gave that interview around 2015, claiming the original 25 song demo was lost and no one in the band wanted to go through their live recordings and choose best performances, so they went with the lackluster Tokyo show, I pretty much gave up hope on them ever bringing me joy again. I do look forward to the release of the John 5 project. That’ll most definitely spark some up some decent discussions.

    This site should be approaching it's 20 year anniversary... the 2004 dates on user accounts are due the site requiring a full rebuild after a notable night of coke, ho's and excessive drinking™... the hosting server didn't make it to sunrise...

    2004 was just a (second?) rebuild if I remember right it started in 1999.

    I'd be interested in hearing the John 5 stuff.

    Far, far more interested in that than Dave's upcoming Vegas stint.

    I'm cognizant that, in terms of selling tickets, Roth needs to do the Classic Van Halen Experience featuring David Lee Roth, because CVH is what the general public (or the non diehard Roth fans) are willing to pay to see and hear.

    I was hopeful that Roth being back with the band would result in the band trying to hunt down, clean up and restore whatever CVH footage has been floating around in bootlegged form for decades and put out an official release of THAT stuff, where they could have put out a multi-dvd set and had the Tokyo Dome show as a bonus disc. Far whatever reason(s), the band opted not to do that and now even dvds are pretty much obsolete, anyway. Because, realistically, how hard would it have been to have sifted through that old CVH footage in terms of time? It wasn't as if the band were working at a furious, breakneck pace since Roth rejoined.

    That would be correct. I remember doing the graphics for the old site. (I cringe at them now.)
