    and Sammy WILL BE DOING THE CABO SETTING, with 50 fans sitting at bar tables enjoying the show times 10...

    Sammy was giving Dave his props and wants to help him get back to mainstream audiences...

    he sounded pretty excited about the whole deal. gave a few little jabs about Dave jokingly.

    Looks like the Van Halen boys chose the Grave over Dave.

    Sammy also said that it doesn't look like Ed and Al will ever get it together.

    Cool! Thanks for sharing that!

    Sad to hear that they've tried several times to reunite with VH and it was shot down. [img]graemlins/irked.gif[/img] [img]graemlins/yell.gif[/img]

    Thanks for all of the info. Back when it was reported that Eddie gave Mike his blessing to work with Sammy, I knew that sounded wrong. Btw, why would Mike care about getting fired from a non-existant band? Which, in my opinion is what VH is now.

    Sammy also said that Dave nixed the encore idea. Sammy claims he offered to just play guitar but Dave still didn't like that idea.

    The only real risk Mike probably takes by getting fired from VH is some kind of monetary arrangement. Knowing the VH bros., there's probably a clause that prevents him from getting cash if he plays somewhere without their blessing. Don't doubt it for a second...

    That's if he gets publishing money - a lot of people (inc. Sammy) have claimed that Mike gets paid a salary. If you look at ASCAP, there is no individual publishing rights for Mike, it all gets put into VH publishing and then who knows how it is split.

    The three times with Dave were probably 85, 96, and 2000 or whatever. The rest all sounds plausible.

    Could be, it would be interesting to hear the context and what Sammy actually said. It might explain some of Mike's comments over the last two years if they've tried 3 times with Dave since Cherone left.

    "There's no business like show business"

    Hey...that's a great title for a song isn't it?

    Soon people are gonna be hearing a lot of VH favorites played live and sung by the 2 guys who helped make them the hits they are. What's not to love?

    Can you imagine what it was like when the two of them finally got together for that first meeting to discuss the possibilities? Man.. with all the shit they said about each other you'd think they really had it in for one another.

    I'll bet you dollars to donuts that there was a bunch of joints shared between them to set the mood for peace talks. Makes sense to me! ... So anyway after six "blunts", 2 pizzas, 8 shrimp cocktails, a box of Oreos, a bottle of Cabo Wabo, 4 burritos, 2 hot dogs, 4 moon pies and a bottle of Tums they probably ended up really liking each other.

    Whether you are a Dave or Sammy fan you're gonna get the best of both worlds. PLUS...Dave's guitarist can cover Ed's parts pretty damned well so the sound oughta be close to the original...sounds like a good deal to me.

    Sure, I'd love to see the original lineup perform together .. hey we're all a little older and wiser now, wouldn't it be great if both Sam and Dave and the boys would be on stage together like musicians with egos and past feelings put aside?

    But...we all know that's no gonna happen anytime soon so it's just wishful pipe-dreaming on my part.

    I feel confident that we are all gonna get our money's worth at the concert though.

    If any of you are gonna be at the LA Universal concert be sure to say hello to me...I will be wearing jeans and a t-shirt so I should be easy to pick out in the crowd :-\

    See ya there my friends!
    If it ain't broken ... break it!<br />"Futzbutton"<br /><br />Pick a number and don't tell me what it is.<br /><br />OK..now add 47 to it. Now subract 13 from it. you are thinking of the number 57 ..right?<br /><br />NO? you're NOT?<br /><br />Fuck!
