    Default 2004: If not Mike, then who?

    So, if Ed didn't want Mike on the 2004 tour, He must of had someone in mind. We already know that Billy Sheehan said he wouldn't do it out of respect for Mike (or something like that). So, who do you think (or maybe know) Ed wanted before Sammy put his foot down?

    It was a studio guy.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    Yeah, no-namer. Can't take the spotlight away. You know, I wonder how Ed really feels about Wolfie, since the bass can be played by any piece of shit and really isn't very important to the band.

    I'm sure that Ed didn't "want" anyone else. I just think he "wanted" for Mike not to be there. Maybe there was someone Ed had in mind to take Mike's spot, but I doubt that Ed had a burning desire for anyone in particular.

    Eddie was using girl logic on this one. How can you justify being pissed at Mike for playing with Sammy, yet bring on Sammy for a tour. That is a mindfuck of all mindfucks.

    Oh my god, here we go again. I would hate to be you guys when your girlfriend or wife calls it quits with you. Your stalking and 2nd guessing must go on longer than this since I would hope that relationship means more to you than poor old Mike... No wait a second it probably doesn't....Get the fuck over it already!!!!

    Wake up!

    The Bass never mattered in Van Halen.

    Sam put his foot down, so he would have a human set of shoulders, to hang every tossed banner that he couldn't sign onto.

    Mike's bass wasn't even plugged in during the 2004 tour.

    A cunt!! I have explained in detail how you all are acting like whiny cunts in regards to MA.......As I stated before and and in other threads if you want support Mike then go to his show with Hagar and buy the hot sauce and the tequila. But don't tell the majority including myself to boycott this tour just because Mike is not going to be there. Mike has done plenty of tours with Sammy while Ed was sick(cancer), going thru a divorce, family member dying, so I think it is just fine for him to set this one out. Finally, I don't give a shit what you threaten, Infinite Ass Suck, I was coming to this site long before I signed up to post shit. I bought items thru this site from 2001 until now, which supports Brett, not you, Cactus Prick! I wanted to talk about Vh and the new tour and that is why I signed up here. Not to have a bunch whiny ass CUNTS try to ram thier fuckin boycott ideas down my throat. So as long you keep your negative whining going on, I am gonna post positive about VH and the tour support, my beliefs about the new line up. A final thought, what if Wolf is better than Mike!! Oh my God. Show some class...Mike has!

    Infinite Ass Suck was better than Cactus Prick IMHO. Um, when you read this thread title did you honestly expect anything positive from it? For that matter nothing you've contributed has been positive either. In all honesty though, if this thread gets you riled up this badly, I'd reconsider my stance on this forum.

    Fuck you cocksucker. This question popped into my head after I read the interviews posted here from rolling stone. If you dont like the question, thats fine, but dont act like a fucking asshole. I dont give a fuck if mike ever plays with van halen again. I simply wanted to know if eddie had anyone in mind, and since there are some true insiders here, I thought someone might know.

    I think it's a legit question but since we're living in CVH's world we shouldn't ask questions anymore. Sorry.

    Y'all:

    I highly recommend going to the 'Forum Announcements' thread and reading Brett's post.

    Regarding the original thread topic, we probably would've seen some unknown studio cat from the LA area *IF* the '04 tour would have gone without Mike. But there is no way in hell that would have EVER happened as long as Sammy was the singer. I'm actually quite surprised Sam never insisted on bringing Mike into the studio sooner to play on the three BOBW tunes. It was probably a very tentative situation, and making suggestions that would've pissed Ed off would have rocked the boat too much.

    VH is so fucking dysfunctional, it's ridiculous.
