    I don't believe we will see Mike join Roth onstage in any way, shape, or form. Why? Because it would take the wind out of a possible reunion, and piss off one Edward Van Halen, that's why!!!

    Mike is no dumbass - he knows that Eddie doesn't give two shits about him jamming with Sammy. Even for studio recording, Eddie doesn't seem to care at all... No plans to reunite with Sam, period. But if Mike were to do the same with Roth, well, there's half of a Classic Van Halen reunion right there! You can bet that Eddie knows that even if he hates Roth, that reuniting with Dave is what everyone wants to see. He's not about to let Mike water that down, or take it away as a future option. Van Hagar, no problem, but not Classic Van Halen!

    i dunno...i think you're searching for some sorta "reason" when in fact it might just come down to the classic case of Mike and Dave were never friends. Mike's joining hagar on stage like an old friend dropping in on his bud, doing him a favor, having some fun.

    Mike and Dave were never like this. Read Dave's book. He mentions mike maybe twice. And in passing.

    that's why you won't see mike joining dave on stage...

    That's what I chalk it up to, as well.

    I think Mike won't join Dave on stage because he doesn't like Dave.

    Isn't it established fact that Mike hasn't liked Dave at all for at least the past decade?

    Its absolutely true that Mike can't stand Roth. In fact, I read an interview where Mike told the Brothers that he would never tour with Roth again. A reporter asked Mike about this statement when talk of a second reunion began to surface. He claimed that while he couldn't stand Roth, he wouldn't want to be the reason for holding up a reunion tour. I've always found it interesting that Edward always gets bashed for his personal dislike of Roth while Mike never receives the same shitstorm. Its just more evidence that Dave is a real asshole to work with. If Mike can't get along with him, it must be true!

    You know, everyone always talks about Van Halen going through 3 singers, and yet no one mentions how many musicians Roth has been through over the years. He's never had the same lineup through two albums in his whole solo career. And he's totally revamped his lineup several times. That says something to me as far as how easy he must be to work with...

    I would venture to say Mike and Dave don't get along. [img]graemlins/scared.gif[/img] Let's face it. Dave lives in a completely different world of reality. I love Dave for what he did in VH, but one can only live with his type of reality. [img]graemlins/devil.gif[/img] I personally can not blame Edward, Alex, and Mike from not wanting to work with him again. He's embarrassing eventhough he thinks he's great. The MTV Award proved that. Dave's time has come and gone. I read in the VH news group a father that took his daughters to the show. They were repulsed about a 47 year old man simulating masterbation with a JD bottle. I believe his daughters concluded Sammy is about the music and David is about himself.

    If I had to reconcile with someone I'd reconcile with Sammy. Sammy's a proven leader, business man, and musician. I think Sammy is far more trustworthy than David. Plus I can't see it being that terribly hard to resolve their issues.

    I'm not saying I'm pro Sammy and not pro Dave. I love the music both of them did, but if I had to pick a guy to represent me and my band I'd pick Sammy.

    Who knows. Maybe Dave is alergic to cats and Michael Anthony's weave is made out of cathair. Who knows?
