...is that you pretty much hit the nail on the head, Kieran.

I would love for VH to release an album of killer new music, either with Dave or Sammy. Geez, if it was killer new music, I woudn't even care if it was with another new singer. I wouldn't even care what they called it. But I am sick and tired of the waiting (in the dark) and the speculation. If there's no news, there's no news. It just means that we have the right to be disgusted with the band's treatment and lack of respect for their fans.

On an interesting side-note: I was just reading the Sept. '01 edition of Metal Edge the other day. In it, there's an article on Quiet Riot. Here's a quote from it...

"[Frankie] Banalli remains realistic about Quiet Riot's chances of equaling past glory (no sh*t!, LOL!), but he's more optimistic than most that, with or without him, the scene he helped inspire will make a comeback. 'I think radio is waiting for somebody to come up with that one song that will open it up for everybody again,' he says. I would think that Van Halen with Dave Roth - if they ever release a record - have a chance of turning it around, because the radio will not turn their back on Van Halen. Then, what's gonna happen is, they can only go so many cuts deep into a Van Halen record before they have to start playing somebody else's new songs..."

If nothing else, it's an interesting take on the whole "future of the scene" speculation. Any thoughts?

Cheers,
Don
