    What's up with the Mikey bashing lately???

    I'm not new to this forums I've been coming here to post for some years now, and I have to honestly say that I'm surprised as hell of all the bashing Mike Anthony have been taking lately here. I know the Eddie and Mike don't see eye to eye lately, but that doesn't mean that we here have to start to put the man down.
    He is a very important if not an essential part of the VH lineup, and honestly if they do decide to go on tour with Dave in 2007 and Mikey is not in there, I will considered that a slap to the face to us the fans.
    I know Ed have been sort of a basket case this past few years and Big Al can't get through him mentally to break out of this bad mojo ego trip that he's been, but c'mon, Eddie needs Mike in there more than anyone thinks. IMO.
    And if any of you considered yourselves True Van Halen fans you will feel the same way I do.

    Don't generalize the population my man. There are a lot of us here actually defending MA and screaming for his inclusion in this reunion. A lot of folks are spending quite a bit of time on here debating the what-ifs and whys of this whole possible reunion, when in fact we're not even sure this is REALLY HAPPENING. It's all comes w/the territory of being loyal to one of the most dysfunctional bands ever. It's all good

    I think most here would want the guy involved of course, If he's not involved I think most of us will be pissed. Just havin' a little fun with it though...I'm a big MA supporter but I can't say that I wouldn't check out a show if he wasn't there. Wouldn't be the same without him,imo.....

    to answer the question proposed by the thread title:

    its called, people trying to justify Eddie's dilusional, drunken behavior. That's my take anyway.....but as already mentioned many people on this site or pretty damn loyal to MA

    As far as I can tell, Mike had the audacity to speak out candidly about the dysfuntional band that is Van Halen. I guess because he is neither Dave or Ed, he doesn't have the right to criticize them and expect to stay in the band.

    I've lurked these boards for years and the Mike bashing is getting worse and worse.
    Simple reason.... Eddie nut swingers... Whatever the man says there is always a HUGE portion of the VH fan base that will take Eddie's word as GOD.

    Dave's the problem
    Sam's the problem
    Kramer is the problem
    Ernie Ball is the problem
    Peavey is the problem
    Seymour Duncan is the problem
    The record label is the problem
    The producer is the problem
    Metal guitar picks (not smoking) is the problem

    and now... Mike is the problem because of 30 seconds of ONE interview Eddie did... but of course Ed can't be wrong so everyone is jumping on the band wagon.

    my guess is that the thing many loved about Mike is that he kept his mouth closed in the press and allowed the rest of the band do look like morons - he was the good guy. With his recent opening of his trap be became fair game just like Ed, Al, Dave & Sam (Gary never said a bad word about anyone so how could you rip him). Mike doens't get criticized nearly as much as other 4, it just looks that way now because it's the first anyone has seen of it.

    If he didn't so the interview and he was left off the tour, I think almost all of us would be going nuts.

    I'm thinking most of the Mike bashing is from DLR fans who have hid under the guise of being CVH fans, and are mad that Mike doesn't suck Dave's manhood. Frankly I think there are far less EVH apologists now than there have ever been.

    From what I can tell, most people don't want to see VH doing somethng without Mike, except for a contingent of DLR-only fans who could give a shit as long as Dave is there. But of course they're not CVH fans, that battle cry for years went out the window the second they thought Dave's return could be real and not a pipe dream.

    The conspiracy theries on here are histerical.

    No one doubts MA is a true and necessary element of the CVH lineup.

    The question posed was would you boycott a Van Halen tour if MA was not playing. I would still go and be there with a smile on my face. I have nothing to gain by sitting at home with an angry face on about how my favorite band betrayed us fans and MA. The seats will be filled with our without MA.

    Enjoy. Just know you're not seeing CVH, as long as you're cool with that.

    Interesting read. Amazing what one rumor will do to this place.

    But I haven't read and laughed this much in a while. All of the theories and opinions are so typical of the VH fanbase, just as dysfunctional as the band.

    I find it hard to believe that there are so many here that could care less about the possibility of Mikey not being a part of any upcoming VH activities.

    It'll be interesting to see what actually happens next year.

    Then, there are the even smaller groups of people, like me, who don't give a crap who is playing with Eddie anymore. I just want to see Eddie play at this point. Van Halen the band is...well, I don't know what it is today. I don't care if its Dave, Sammy or the Swedish Chef. Would I like for mike to be there? Yes. Is it going to stop me from wanting to see Eddie play? Nope.

    I don't care who is sucking who's cock, or who is pissing off who. I'll never meet these guys, I'll never know them personally. They get to make music for a living and I buy it.

    Classic Van Halen is long gone. 1978-1984 is not coming back. Sure, the same four guys from that time period could potentially play again. But that is where the similarities end. They are older and have different attitudes now. They aren't buddies anymore. Dave's voice is rougher. Eddie is not as fast and a little sloppy. I'm fine with that. But the common thread through all of this is Eddie, and thats who I want to see play. If Mike's not there, well I can live with that. I never got to see Dave with Eddie before, so that's interesting, but if he wasn't going to tour with Eddie, fine.

    Understood. That said, even is all 4 are there, I'm not sure Mo Ostin himself could resurect the real CVH.
