Note to FORD on 'VDIII' Post

FORD, I really liked your posting on the days leading up to the decision to can Sammy, then Dave and then bring in both Cherone AND, unbelievably enough, Mike Post. I agree that Danniels was the driving influence but would be remiss in pointing out one other important factor from that era: the KISS reunion which was a tremendous cash cow for the boys during that time. I've heard repeatedly that the driving influence behind Eddie's 'Dear John' call to Sammy was to cash in on the reunion craze.

Admittedly pissed by a 'greatest hits' effort AND a strange tune for a movie soundtrack 'Humans Being', Sammy was at odds with the Van Halens about the immediate future. The answer was to get rid of the 'employee' and bring back an original to cash in on. Why Dave was kicked out is something you'd probably know better (was his brain really fried?).
