    ...Mike was seen leaving the backstage area.

    Nice to hear that their friendship survived the debacle. Gives a little credence to the "Sammy talks to the band" rumors too.

    I just can't understand why Mike stayed in with Van Halen when he could have joined Sammy's band. After all the chaos and no artistic freedom with VH it makes me wonder.
    I wonder if he got a major boost in pay to stay and not leave with his friend Sammy. Van Halen wouldn't have survived DLR, Sammy and Mike getting shafted in the same year.

    Well,

    This is both believable and probable.

    I concur, even if this is nothing VH-related, its good to see they can still be friends. I really don't think any of them have ever claimed that they couldn't get along just outside of the band. If Eddie and Sammy meet at a party or something I guarantee you there won't be any brawl.

    Let the Sammy w/VH rumors begin!

    Just kidding. That probably won't ever happen again. My only request is and has always been:

    The final show on the final tour must be with both lead singers. I'm not asking for an entire tour, I know that is extremely improbable, but just the last show. I want the Dave with VH and Sammy with VH sets. All the favorites: one night. And the finale has to be both of them on "Best of Both Worlds" (because this would be clever) and "Jump" (because even Gary did a good job on this).

    Just my two cents.

    I was at that show. Didn't see Mikey. But, then again, I wasn't anywhere near the backstage area.....

    You probobly won't get that but a few peeps will.

    This type of thing makes me nervous.

    I wonder if Mike agreed to stay on and do one album with Dave - then was going to leave.

    If this is true I am very sad. Mike going behind Eddie's back to see the enemy. Mike is a trader. Kind of like that fucker Benedict Arnold. What a shame. I sure hope Eddie doesn't find out. Otherwise Mike could be out of a fucking job. Maybe he could join Sammy in loserville.Peace out.

    If Eddie has a problem with Mike going to see Sammy (a friend) perform then he needs a reality check. I doubt very highly that Mike is planning on leaving VH to go with Sammy, if this was the case he would have done it atleast a year ago.

    According to Dave, they were going to kick Mikey out in '96.

    What was Mikes relationship with Dave? Maybe Mikey just said fuck it - because he didn't want to work with him.

    Or - - - - it could be that the other rumours we have heard about things with Dave not working out were/are true; and Ed sent Mike in to talk with Sammy. Oh gawd . . . if that were the case we would have to wait for another @$#@ year for new stuff.

    I really wish VH would say something... As much as all the rumours are leading down the same road (Dave in VH; new CD/tour in Q1 01)- we still haven't heard shit from them.
