    Well here is the story on NAMM today. I hooked up with "NotABozo" today and we were hoping to see Ed. As you all know Ed showed up Wednesday night for the Peavey folks but not today for his original "scheduled" time.

    Anyway we made our way over to the Marriott where Yamaha had their setup. Very nice little bass section with a poster of Mike and two BB2000 bases of his one per side.

    Around 3:00 pm Joe noticed Scotty Ross and then we got to see everyone's "favorite" webmaster Brad. LOL After this Mike finally made his way in. We were the first two in line and got to get a glossy 8x10 signed by the mighty Micheal Anthony. Joe asked if they guys at the links were going to be happy and Mike's reply was "yes" and he gave him a wink.

    Next up, I sat down shook his hand and asked if the fans would be happy next year. He said, "No, you'll be happy this year." I got my autograph and went on. Then my girlfriend sat down, he put his arm around her and actually personalized her autographed picture.

    He was really nice and hopefully we'll see him on tour with his new bass this year.

    Best of all, I got this all on digital video and will be sending a copy to Brett on Monday morning once I get to work and download it from my camera.

    Later

    Looking forward to seeing the video you got.

    That's Cool!

    Only problem I see is that there are another 11+ months left in THIS year!!
    Let's just hope it's within the next couple months!!

    This is finally some credible news along with Brett's encounter. I would just stop listen to all the other bullshit that flies.
    We will get the reunion soon. I can what a little while longer.

    I'm erect!

    Here is the best part. Brad must have loved the bottom of the 8x10's. It says:

    Michael Anthony
    BB3000MA Signature Model
    vhlinks.com/links/Michaell_Anthony/

    You have to love this. No mention of van-halen.com.

    I love it.

    This was the 8x10 Mike Yamaha was giving the fans for Mike to sign. It was a black and white with him and his new bass. Also here is the full transcript of the video:

    Joe said, "Are we at the "links" going to be hapy?"

    Mike, "Everything is good to go."

    I sit down.

    Mike, "Is that a video?"

    Mike, "I'd say something profound."

    Me, "Are we going to be happy next year?"

    Mike, "Ya, No this year."

    Your telling me that Yamaha printed these 8x10's with vhlinks.com transcribed on the bottom of them? You HAVE to be kidding me. I'm I understanding this correctly?

    Yamaha did print them with the vhlinks link on the bottom. No mention of van-halen.com. I'll scan the picture in on Monday at work too.
