    Default Petition to get Michael Anthony's acknowledgement on the first 6 albums.

    After reading through some posts, I decided to make up this petition for people to sign. It is to get MA's rightful recognition on the albums as displayed on the official website. I do not know how much of an impact it will have, although if the band, it's reps and management are looking through here, maybe seeing this will make them reconsider and properly acknowledge Mikey's contribute.

    So feel free to click and leave a message!

    Esp since Dave stood up there & said "Mike was a part of this band's history".

    Yet they do this crap.

    dude,

    its nothing more than not wanting to pay him for the use of his likeness.

    The only people who care are some of the die-hards here. And they wont listen to us anyways.

    Let it go....

    The thing I don't understand is that it's a Van Halen website. Why wouldn't they have ALL of the CD covers on there along with a mention of ALL the band members (Sammy & Gary)?

    I respect your idea of making a petition, but:

    -everybody knows that Michael Anthony [MA] played bass on fisrt albums
    -nothing and nobody CAN delete/destroy his past work in Van Halen [VH]
    -everybody can go in its local record store, buy WACF, VHI and see that MA is on the cover, or buy 1984, VHII and see him on the back

    I don't think that we need a petition to confirm something that historically happened and it's under everybody's eyes.
    We don't need confirmation for that.

    Maybe somebody at the VH camp wants to forget MA. But it's not a problem of the fans, who knows the history. MA knows he's part of the band's history.

    They don't give a shit. It's easy to picture Ed telling Brad "I don't want his picture anywhere on that site, period". I don't see where a petition is going to accomplish much, Ed simply doesn't care about what anyone thinks. What was once a very cool dude has turned into a total dick.

    It's a Van HALEN website. Not a Van Hagar or VDIII website. And yes, VDIII did have it's own official website (I should know.... I killed it. )

    I'm on board with the petition, though it's been my experience that these things are useless. I was involved with one that had 30,000 or so signatures nearly a year ago, and it did nothing to change the minds of those who were in the wrong.

    Assuming Mr. $tarks had anything to do with the current website, and he may not have. It certainly doesn't resemble any of his previous work.

    I think you under-estimate how many people are a little put off by this. It isn't about some die-hards who are disappointed, it is about wrongfully misrepresenting a product, not giving credit to a founding member, effectively erasing him from the past.

    I was strongly thinking about putting that in there. They have been part of the storied past, but the issue is more of mike being robbed of his credits. It would be like if the OU812 album featured Dave in place of Sammy. This is specific to the first 6 albums and in particular VH I and WACF.

    Well it is more to reiterate our disgust as fans for them to do that. We all know that, but if it is collected in one place and delivered to the band's management, maybe then it can have a positive effect. Signing it takes less then a minute and delivery of it is equally easy too.

    Didin't Mikey sign away all of his future rights with VH as part of being able to do the '04 tour? Maybe that is why he isn't on there.

    a petition, what a dumb idea. like the other guy wrote, let it go. michael anthonys not in the band anymore, big woop. i'm sure he's doing fine. if you want to hear him playing in van halen, listen to their back catalogue.

    I agree with you that petitions are usually useless (including this one), but when Sammy and Gary were in the band it was still called Van HALEN, was it not?
    This is the band's official website. It should mention everything Van Halen in it.
    But I know that it's Van Halen and that everything is done half-ass.

    Mikey's a great guy...but this petition is a waste of energy. Eddie/Alex are not going to change anything at this point. We all appreciate what Mike brought to Van Halen, and removing his pic cannot change that.

    Think of it this way in 22 more years they can 'reunite' with Mikey and then the 'reunion' will be complete...LOL

    I'm on record as being pissed off about the airbrush job on the website, but I think these petitions are just putting ink (pixels) to tantrums. If you are really that upset by the whole deal, put your money where your mouth is and stay home. Petitions are too easy to sign and the only way you are going to get your point across is to hit someone in the wallet.

    I just don't care that much about it, really, so these schmucks are going to get my cash. I'm beyond liking any of them personally anymore, so I guess it is easy for me to kick back and enjoy VH4 without a care to the moral justification of it all.
