    The tour was 5150, the venue was the Forum in LA. Does anyone remember Mikey coming out on stage during a song in a Gumby costume to the delight and suprise of Ed? That was some funny S*#!.

    If memory serves me correctly, I believe that he took the costume from a fan that was wearing it in the audience. The "I just want to party and have a good time" attitude of the band made it great to be a VH fan during that time.
    When you hear a song, it can make you remember what you felt, where you were and who you were with the first time you heard it. That's what music can do.<br /><br />When I get into you, get into me...

    I remember that!!! The guy in the Gumby suit was walking around the concourse before VH went on...great memory! They all lost their shit when Mikey came onstage.

    Thanks for bringin' that memory out of mothballs!

    Mike remembers wearing the Gumby costume. Here's the reply I got from Brad Starks:

    From: Joe5150

    Brad,

    Does Mike have any pictures of himself wearing a “Gumby” costume, playing
    his bass, during the show at the L.A. Forum on July 3, 1986? Thought
    maybe you could ask Mike and/or Sue, and if so, post the picture on
    Mike’s or VH’s web site. Thanks.

    Joe

    I thought you might be interested in reading this UBB topic:

    Hi Joe,
    I talked to Mike about it today and he remembers it well. He remembers seeing a guy walking around wearing it and thought to himself that he just had to wear that costume on stage. He came out during Ed’s solo and the band got a kick out of it. He said it was good for some comic relief. [img]smile.gif[/img] He also remembers wearing a big fish head during another show on the tour. He doesn’t remember if he has a pic of him with the gumby suit on or not but he’ll check it out after he gets off the road. If he finds one and it’s a good shot, we’ll put it on the site.

    In VH we trust,
