    Some old news, please read

    Check this article that appeared on Van-halen.com back in '98

    I love brad writing "ridiculous claims"

    Boston Herald Report False
    Update 01/14/98: The Inside Track section of today's Boston Herald reports a host of ridiculous claims including Gary planning on leaving the band once III is released, Michael being fired, and Warner Bros. being unhappy with not only the first planned single Without You but the entire album.
    Rest assured, 99% of the article is COMPLETELY UNTRUE. The only correct piece of information in the entire writeup is the new March 17 release date. Read the Reschedule report for all the details regarding III's rescheduling.
    Gary left the band, Mike has been fired, and Warner drop the VH bros.

    Check it here:

    WOW! You mean to tell me that 3 was just a bad dream, and they really broke up, and didn' go on tour! because I swore I saw VH on the 3 tour with Gary, and I think that guy playing bass was Mike? No wait I did see them, and I have a pic of it also!

    That has been such a waste of web space since its inception.

    Where is that virtual tour of the 5150 studio ? Ha

    When are the Pleasure Dome forums opening back up ?

    Well, yeah but it doesn't mean that Mike was fired. He could've left the band, like for example around the spring of 02 during the Sam/Dave tour...

    I don't understand where this is headed..... at the time, Brad was just straightening out some bullshit... some ridiculous claims... Gary didn't quit (in 1-98), Mikey wasn't fired, and WB, as we all know, LOVED III.....

    ....Alright, ya got me on that last one!

    The point of it is that things sort of worked out that way, although not literally and not at that time. Gary left, Mike was out of the band, and almost nobody was satisfied with III.

    Garth: Uh, me...and...and Wayne...
    Wayne: ...and uh...VAN HALEN!!!
    Garth: Wow. Van Halen. Who else?
    Bobby: Yeah, who else?
    Wayne: Uh, an old man fashioning a kayak out of a log?
