    You know that picture of the band that's behind where the CD is placed?

    Am I the only one who thinks that does NOT look like Mikey? It almost looks like he was drawn in. Probably not, but I just think that's a weird picture of him.

    Damn, I'd swear I'd never noticed that before, but good call. It looks nothing like Mikey, and check out Alex, he looks like a cartoon. It's kind of funny, because VH III has been slagged for Mikey being nowhere to be heard and the rumors that Alex didn't play on several tracks. This is sort of like the Paul Is Dead story that came up around the Beatles.

    Is there a conspiracy in the Van Halen camp? Maybe we should start looking for clues as to Mikeys' absence. I'll start;

    1. Maybe Mikey is the guy on the cover of III, and his injuries from the cannonball forced VH to replace him.

    That's the most out of focus, peice of shit pic I've seen of the band.

    But then again, Gary's in it. Just a joke, people.

    Seriously though, when I first saw it, I thought, "Damn... what IS this? Ed looks like Ozzy from the cover of Black Sabbath's 'Volume 4' album. Mike looks strange as hell. And what's with that new dude's schnoz?" LOL.

    They had to use stunt doubles for that pic because of the presence of flying cannonballs on the cover. Mikey wanted to do his own stunts, but they wouldn't let him.

    RIGHT NOW....The original Van Halen is working together somewhere....

    I've noticed the same thing! I mean even Ed doesn't look right in that pic! It has to be one of the worse band pics of VH ever!

    I've often wondered about that picture myself... I don't know, it's sorta hard to tell for sure WHO is in the picture, it's so damn out of focus!

    Don't you love how camera's have adjustments to put pictures in focus, yet so many assholes in the world insist on taking them out of focus, like it's somehow more artsy that way?.....
    Just a side thought there.

    I DID notice that about 3 weeks ago.. Alex is just plain goofy looking.. and if you were to just show me the pic. of Mike with no one else around him.. I'd swear that ain't Michael Anthony!
