    Default Mikey left out of the album art...

    I didn't wanna start a new thread due to this subject being discussed in multiple threads and I'm sure it'll get closed quickly...

    But, having said that...

    I understand that people may be upset he isn't shown on the album art on the WEBSITE but they haven't put the albums in stores looking that way...

    If they did that, I would feel a little bit upset because it would be like when the Jimi Hendrix Experience albums were rereleased with "new" album art. It's not the way it was originally intended. That is like changing the cover to a book. It's not right but it doesn't ruin the content inside... If they rerecorded the albums with Wolfie, it would be the equivalent of getting Brad Pitt to be Luke Skywalker for Star Wars... OOPS, George Lucas already changed Star Wars...

    Anyways, I hope the boys don't put out the albums the way they look on the website and hope that they don't rerecord anything and put them out trying to pawn them off to us...

    Before we know it they'll have Wolf re-record all of Mike's bass tracks and overdub them onto all of the albums he played on a la' that fuckin' bitch sharon osbourne.

    It is funny how many equate MA being replaced on the album art as sacrilegious as Greedo shooting first.

    I felt like a geek, but I made the same comparison when first noting the changes.

    I was just shown this on the VH website. That is really disppointing, to say the least. Cowardly, actually.

    If VH even tries to release new pressings with this art I hope Mike sues their ass!

    There is no reason for new pressings. The website is promoting the tour with "this version" of the band. No more, no less.

    “And what we have at our fingertips is arguably one of the greatest high tenor voices ever – that was in Michael Anthony. In our tiny little corner of the universe, that voice is as identifiable as the high voice in Earth, Wind & Fire, as identifiable as the high voice in the Beach Boys. Van Halen is an indelicate house blend of both – that’s intentionally. So I would always look forward to that reunion.” - David Lee Roth

    It is complete bullshit, and the first sign this tour is going to be a complete disappointment...

    I'll agree that removing Mike's image from a 100 x 100 pixel image of an album cover which you can barely see, is ridiculous. But for all we know, Mike might have told them not to use his image in any tour promotions.

    On the other hand, it's absolutely hilarious that a website once dominated by the sheep loving Pasture Dump no longer contains a shred of evidence that Van Hagar ever existed.

    Welcome back, Van HALEN!!!!

    What is most strange to me is why even have the album "covers" lining the sides of the website to begin with...

    If they didn't put the modified versions on there in the first place, there would be a lot less bitching...

    I guess it wouldn't be Van Halen without bitching about something...

    Where's the threads regarding Ed's hairdo and choice of footwear??? LOL...

    We already got an answer on that, and it was no. And you can very clearly see it's not Mike on VH 1, and that there is NO PICTURE at all on WACF. They made sure it was noticeable.
