    IMO irreplacable , I have seen alot of rumors in the past and even on MTV awhile back that Mike is out of the band . I think he is the key ingredient that holds Van Halen toghether .

    Then I've heard that Billy Sheehan will be his replacement . If Mike was ever fired or quit Van Halen I think I would loose interest in the band . One thing I always look forward to is Mike's harmonies and his sense of humor . Seems like a real cool guy , just a regular guy . If Van Halen disbanded in the future I would like to see the pint size whiskey sippin bass player hook up with Sam .

    one word,
    Never.

    He is 1/2 of Van Halen's rythym.
    It would be like losing one leg, try standing for more than a few seconds on one leg, you would fall all over yourself.

    whether its Dave, Sammy or Gary its still Van Halen because its really Eddie, Alex and Mike

    It wouldn't be Van Halen without Mike. Enough said.

    The latter part would probably happen, but Mikey will NEVER leave VH. NEVER. And he would be crazy to think about it. Well, not crazy to think about it, but very crazy to do it. He is VERY important to VH.

    Mike is the MVP. The VH sound would totally alter if Mike were removed. And Mike is cool enough to hang back; if Ed had a bass player competing with him for sound and space, it would totally clutter up the sound. Plus, nobody sings the harmonies like our man Mike.

    Right on. You lose Mike you lose the sound unmistakeable sound of VH, besides Eddies Guitar and Al's Drums, that is the background vocals. If they fire Mike, I would boycott the band

    He is the glue that holds that band together.
    Wouldn't be the same without him.

    I am glad to see MIKE get some credit here .
    I have heard Sammy say that Ray Daniels called Mike the luckiest guy in the world , like he should feel lucky to be in Van Halen , fuck Ray !

    Obviously Ray thinks Geddy Lee is a better bassist , BULLSHIT!

    Rumors of Mikey being out of the band have circulated since 1996. At least then there was a basis for them, given his friendship with Sammy Hagar.

    As a bass player, Mikey could be replaced easily by a Billy Sheehan type. However it's Mikey's harmonies that make him an integral component of the Van Halen sound. And for that reason (not to mention the fact that he seems to go along with whatever Eddie wants) I don't think Mikey's ever going anywhere.

    Van HALEN is: Dave, Eddie, Mikey, Alex. Any questions?

    Mike is the Offensive Lineman of VanHalen.

    There sound would change drasticly if Mikey were to not be around, and that would be bad.

    Mike background vocal's are a big part of teh signature sound. In his book, Dave basically says that Mike is vital.

    Mike is a PRO BOWL offensive Lineman
    I am sorry RUSH fans to pan on Geddy Lee but IMO I think RUSH isn't in the same league as Van Halen . I do like other bands , I don't listen to Van Halen 24-7 , well pretty cloose

    i think the only way mike would be out would be if he decided it was time to pack it up...he's been with them way too long to be ditched at this point.
