    Default Move Wolfie to 2nd guitar, bring Mike back on bass - Would it keep everyone happy?

    The A-Team wouldn't feel right if you replaced Face with Mr T's son, but if you added Mr T's son to the original 4, arguably it would still be palatable.

    Is it too late for a simple compromise of making Van Halen a 5 piece?
    Would those who say they wouldn't go to a tour without the original 4 accept this? To me it seems a simple win-win.

    I'm not interested if Wolfie's playing bass. I am interested, however, if Mike is playing bass. As long as Mike is playing bass with VH, then they could stick Wolfie on cowbell and timbale and I wouldn't care.

    Some (alot) of you guys would never be happy. It'd be one thing or another to gripe about.

    Yeah, I think everyone would be cool with Wolfie on rhythm guitar or something as long as Michael is still on bass. But quite frankly, I wouldn't want to see him out there on stage the entire time either. Why couldn't he just come out for a song or two and then leave?

    It would not matter and in fact it probably would be worse.

    For one, there really is no need for two guitars with CVH music. Outside of a few overdubs, it would really get in the way.

    Second even if Mike was back, people would find other shit to bitch about.

    Dave's voice vs Sam's
    Whether or not Mike is getting paid as a full time member.
    Why is Sammy not included on this tour.
    Ed's use of the sustainer
    Ed's hair
    Ed's boots
    Wolfgang playing along with Eddie during his solo.
    Dave doing the JD routine
    Dave's hair
    Dave's outfits
    Ed using a cord vs. wireless
    Ed trashing a guitar
    Mike not getting a chance to sing Somebody Get Me A Doctor
    The setlist not containing enough deep cuts
    The setlist being too short
    The opening act
    Eddie smoking
    Dave drinking in front of Eddie
    Eddie using sequenced keys
    Harmonizer being used on Mike's voice since Ed's voice is shot
    Set list is the same every night
    Dave doing his sword routine


    I could go on but you get the point. I remember when Mike was in the band with Sammy during the 2004 tour. Regardless of Ed's playing the majority of what I listed above was mentioned. Substitute Sam for Dave and you get the idea.

    The majority of the people here are not happy unless they are bitching about something. Whether its justified or not, its always a bitch fest. It would be even if Mike was back.

    J, same could be said about the people who can't handle that EVERYONE is not on board for this tour. What you guys are calling whining, I'd call the truth and vice versa. It's impossible to give an opinion either way.

    I'd venture a guess that just about everyone on this board would be completely, over the top STOKED for a real, honest to gawd REUNION tour (assuming Dave's voice is a fraction of what it used to be). That, at least to me, would have demonstrated Eddie's sobriety and committment to his own fucking legacy and the people who contributed to the brother's collective stardom. Instead we get yet another demonstrable lesson in Eddie's abject stupidity, arrogance, and stubbornness and his obvious need to surround himself with people who refuse to challenge his behavior. As if we needed even more reminders that he's a destructive, self-important prick of a human-being.

    No Mike, no CVH. And I don't give a shit what the last name is of 3/4 of this abortion. It would be more honest to the "average" sheep who doesn't and never will know who Michael Anthony is to call this iteration VH-Cubed w/ Special Guest David Lee Roth.
