    Default will the original 4 ever tour again?

    i'm not talking about making a record here. i'm talking about doing a tour, or even one last show someday.

    anyone think it's possible?

    I think it will happen at some point. But tour as a band again. I doubt it. One show or performance. Probably.

    No, they're done.

    Mike's found a better gig, a group that treats him like an equal rightfully so, lets him play his boom stick the way he wants to.

    Mike might do it for the fans, I guess...but I hope he doesn't. Change is good, and he's at a great spot in life artist-wise...outstanding new record well received by fans and critics alike, peers that he gets along with...why go back to Eddie's bullshit? And Dave's, for that matter?

    That Van Halen has been gone for 25 years. It's never coming back. Even if Eddie and Dave apologized and begged him to come back...which they won't...I just don't see it happening. Once that kid stepped onstage as the bassist, Ed forever sealed any return of Mike, I think.

    I think the Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame was the last real shot at something like that. I don't know what occasion would bring them back now. Especially with the Ed vs. Mike crap in the press recently. Mike's with Sammy now and Ed ain't gonna fire his kid. I think Mike would be willing, but i don't see it happening with the bros. I'd be happy with a new record at this point. I'll take that over a tour any time.

    Mike's taking an acting class.

    No, wait, that's not it...

    How does that go again?

    Nope.

    Why would anyone think that Dave and Ed will last? If they get through a new album and tour it'll be a miracle, especially if the CD sucks.

    Now add Chickenfoot to the equation. Could be mistaken, but seems like Mikey is having a blast, it's his best playing ever imo.

    I'd be very surprised to see the original 4 together again.

    I agree 100%.

    This is how the phone call should go:

    Ed: Hey Mike, It's Ed.! How's it going, dude?!?

    Mike: Oh...don't you mean Sauce Sobolewski?!?!?

    Ed: Huh?

    Mike: Nevermind. What is it? I'm busy recording some bass lines for CHICKENFOOT's new album.

    Ed: Oh yeah? I've been recording some shit myself............(awkward silence)......So Dave and Al were wondering....Would you be interested in re-joining the band?

    Mike: What about Wolf?

    Ed:Well Wolf, Al, and Dave and myself were talking the other day at the studio about you...we felt that it would only be right if you came bac.....

    Mike: Sorry Ed, Andy is calling me. I need to lay down some background vocals on this track. You know the ones that your son pulled off quite nicely. I'll catch ya later.....dude.


    Mike has WAY to much respect to do that but one can dream.

    No way they ever tour again. I don't know what the occasion would be, but I guess it's possible they could do one show or a few songs one day.

    I think it's possible. I doubt anytime soon but I think it's definitely a possibility down the road. I think Ed is serious about Wolf being in though. I don't think it was simply a spiteful convenience to have Wolf join. Never say never though.
    If Dave could come back and they could mend some fences I think a lot is possible.

    Who fucking knows at this point. If offered I think he'd accept put I don't see that happening. Trying to guess this bands future is like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
