    Default Mike Getting Canned!

    I don't think I've seen this anywhere and I don't know why it only just crossed my mind now. Probably in light of Mike's first-class handling of the RRHoF induction, anyway...

    From all the accounts I've heard/read, it seems like even Mark Stone was fired in person. Yet Mike, who's contibuition to the band was invaluable, finds out that he's fired through the media??? Let alone replaced by an unproven 16-year old???

    What a classless, cowardly, not to mention scumbag, move. No wonder Ed, Al and Dave didn't show up for the RRHoF induction. They weren't man enough to face Mike!

    now that's a funny post, yeah that's probably why Mike and Sam both thanked Ed, Dave and Al.

    You don't even get an argument out of the Ed/Dave suckers for this part. Fuckin jackoffs. Otis, you are also right about the other douches not being man enough. It's funny to hear Ed talk about kicking someones ass. I've got 3 sisters, anyone of whom could mop the floor with that little fucker!

    You got it wrong. As last night's show proved, it's MIKE who fired Ed and Al from VH. He now IS Van Halen all by himself!

    and from what i can tell, he's hired sam to sing
    SOME VH LINKS CLASSICS


    "Sammy is fat, Dave is bald, Mike is next in line to be the Pope, Eddie is a drunk, Wolfie is fat, Gary is gay, CVH is VH, Mike is VH, Sammy can outsing Dave on a tequilla hangover, Eddie is a meth head, How Many Say I is the worst VH song ever, Up for Breakfast is a close second, Dave was horrible at radio and everybody hates the assless chaps.
    Ok I think that covers everything." Ziggysmalls

    "I sense that some of our newer passengers may be nervous due to the sudden turbulence. Please be seated, this is simply a normal part of the periodic ride.
    I didn't say we'll get to the destination, but until Alex comes out a says what a complete waste of carbon DLR is, we're still climbing, so strap yourselves in.
    Those of you who have been on this ride before, the hottie in the mini will be around shortly with your drinks......." Red

    I think Mike handled it very well and intelligently. He's going to go on with his life knowing that Eddie will eventually call and apologize as part of his recovery process.

    I believe the whole mess of the last few months (and a few others from years past) will be cleared up when Eddie gets out of rehab. He screwed up a lot of things and he will have to make peace with his band mates before the band can continue. At this point, I don't care what form VH takes, as long as Eddie cleans up.

    I'm sorry, but I am glad Mike is out. He never fit in this band anyway and his contributions are largely over exaggerated. He isn't even a mediocre bass player and he is pretty much a dork. Nice guy and all but he would be better suited in a band like Europe or white lion or some poppy shit like that. Van Halen is a darker blend than his personality. He would make a good janitor

    All of it. Ed should just play the bass and pre-record it and hire Mike as a back up singer. He really sucks at bass, sorry man but it's the truth. I have met him twice and he is a total dork.
