    Default Mike asked to re-join Van Halen

    I have a friend of mine who works for a radio station in Chicago. He just called me and said that their station somehow did an interview with Michael Anthony this morning. Mike said that he was recently contacted by Ed about re-joining VH for a tour in 2010/2011, after Chickenfoot. The only detail he told me was that Mike said he didn't give an answer and was only focusing on Chickenfoot, but that it was a good conversation. He said it should be all over the internet by the end of the day.

    If it sounds like bull shit, feels like bull shit, and appears to be bull shit, it's probably Eddie talking about his new lead singer being his new brother at a press conference...

    If true, that sounds encouraging just for a relationship standpoint. I don't really care anymore who is in what band, I just hate to see guys who were successful with each other be so bitter towards each other. Maybe one day we'll get a REAL Sam VS Dave tour
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    I hope it's true. And I kinda hope Mike says, the following:

    "Hey Ed. It's REALLY is great to hear from you and I am SO happy that you look great and it looks like your life is back track. And I am flattered that you would ask me to re-join the band. God knows, I want to play for the fans more than anything.

    But first I have somethings I need to get off my chest.......Why now Ed? What? Your son decided that being in a world class band replacing a member who had been in the band for 30 years was ludicrous? Did Wolfie suddenly quit?

    You say I quit the band yet now you're crawling back. I should spit in your face.

    Fuck you.


    Mike would NEVER say that but I wouldn't be surprised after all the shit Ed has done to him if Mike gives Ed a piece of his mind. Mike called Ed one of his soulmates and his brothers in an interview with Eddie Trunk in 2005 and he said how much he loved the guy and how much he cared about his health.

    I hope to see Mike back where he belongs. but if he says FUCK YOU to Ed, I wouldn't be the LEAST bit disappointed. In fact I might feel kind of happy if Mike takes that course of action.

    This is too much to hope for but I have mixed feelings on this one. Maybe it's too early in the day to ponder on.

    It's been a while since a rumor was posted sourced from some random DJ about a potential VH reunion.

    Interesting news day. First it was Alex saying the new album would be called "ENCORE" and now Ed wants Mike in the band. I think it would be good of ED to "bury" the hatchet with Sam and Mike, but if they are going to be coming out with new music with Wolfie on bass I don't see Ed asking Mike to rejoin the band for a tour unless it was going to be another cash grab reunion tour.

    Me too. I'd love Mike back in VH, but Ed has been so unpredictable, or predictable depending on how you view it. If true, then it raises the question as to where Wolfie stands. Does he want out? Not trying to float any rumours about that but makes you wonder. If Ed's honestly clean now, and it does get easier with time then maybe it could work. I put alot of Ed's miserable demeanor over the past decade soley in the booze and drug abuse, and his basic inability to cope with adversity.
    When his and Alex's Father died in 88' he went on a coke and booze fueled bender, and the only thing that stopped him then was catching malaria or typhoid or something on vacation and almost dying from fever while in the hospital. this forced him into a detox, then a stint at Betty Ford. Got better until the Monsters tour, then went off the rails again. He went through a similar deal when Leffler died. He was like a serrogate father to him. It's too bad he always gave into booze to cope, but this time he honestly seems, at least at this time to be on the right track. Either way though, the reality is Ed and Mike have had a touchy relationship over the years, dating back to FW, so even if he did go back, there's alot of animosity to bury, but hey, if Dave can handle it with his ego, and Ed as well (despite his "Don't blame me!" shit) then I'm sure Mike would give it his all. I doubt very much that Sam would ever be in the 10 foot viscinity of Eddie again let alone a tour.
    She looks so $#@!'n good ,so sexy and so frail....Somethin's got the bite on me, I'm goin' straight to Hell.

    What station ? It would be interesting if true, this may also indicate DLR is out and Sam back in ?

    Exactly. Same here. Both parties have moved on anyways. What would be the point now? You've already blown the prime opportunity. It would only be a farce if it were to materialize. Too late Ed. You blew it. The fleecing of the fans twice over would be too much.

    Anyway, this is just more radio fodder crappola imo.
