    Default Mikey should just start another band

    I think that after reading that interview and also other things I've read from articles and fan sitings, that Mike may well be the only honest and top notch guy in the band. If I were him I would move on and do my own thing, Van Halen is dead as far as I'm concerned, I just don't see them doing anything in the near future. For Ed to treat him like that prior to the 2004 tour is crap, Mike deserves better than that he's always the one in the middle of the drama between Eddie and the singers. I would love to see Van Halen come back with a new record but I just don't see it happening.

    i absolutely agree mike should start a new band. i mean playing with sam is cool, but he wont kick mona out of his band and have him in his recording band. he definetly writes his own stuff or would want to, so he should get some people together and start something original.

    I love Mikey to death, but I'm not sure that's something that he'd ever really want to do.

    It sounds like he's still quite proud of his legacy in VH (as he should be) and I think that he probably very attached to the group of people he's worked with in VH (Sam, Ed, Al, even though the latter two don't sound very attached to him ), so I doubt that he'd ever really do anything outside of the realm of "The Other Half", "Los Tres Gusanos", etc. Although, I'd really like to see them come up with some original tunes for the tour.

    I agree...

    After his "tell all" interview the brothers are not going to have him back! Whatever happenned to the thing he was going to do with George Lynch? That would have kicked ass! George has already said how much he has enjoyed playing with Mike a few times. Good singer and drummer and that would just kill!

    It only makes sence that he goes his own way. Look, Eddie has done everything to keep this guy down. From Ed keeping him from selling his sauce durning the 04 tour to just not putting any new music out. You can not expect Mike to sit back and not earn a living and have fun doing what he loves.

    I think how Ed treats Mike in general is crappy. This considering how much loyality Mike has given to ED!

    absolutely a great idea...sounds as though Mikey was the recipient of some pretty crappy treatment from Ed...he's got lots of music left in him...be proud of the VH legacy, but it'd be a shame for him to fade away too soon...
    ...and in the end, on dreams we will depend...

    You know Mikey's newest interview kind of in a way confirmed what Billy Sheehan stated in a past interview that he was asked to join the band, so apparently the brothers at least Eddie anyway didn't think much of Mike even all those years ago.

    Who would compliment mike in a band? who would the perfect lineup be?

    Forget Vai.
    I wonder what he'd do with Slash?
    and would he have a chick singing or a guy?
    i'd say the chick woiuld be better suited because of mikeys range..and he'd have to have a good vibe with a drummer as well..

    Wait, how about those two cats that are unreal but aren't doing anything....they are on the tip of my tongue...uh..uh...uh....oh yeah, i got it..those VH brothers, Ed and Al...?

    They could call it VANTHONY!
    Now comes my favorite part of the show. It's my favorite part of the whole evening. We've been on tour since March and I have no better time anytime then right now because I get to go sit down, have myself a nice cold one and listen to the greatest rock n'roll guitar player in the world.

    MA, Zakk Wylde (after the new Ozzy CD and final Ozzy retirement) Sammy and any drummer. Sammy needs another song writer in the group.

    i dont think sammy would work..it wouldnt be Mikey's band, it would always be 'former VH frontman and former Vh baSSIST..."

    I LIKE ZAKK WYLDE, BUT I think the drummer is veruy important for the bass player. Could mikey keep up with neil peart?
