    That has to be the first article I've ever read that mentioned Mikey's name before Ed, Alex or Dave. Just thought I'd point out that useless fact.

    How about that quote from Tommy Lee that they are recording with Dave already? I would kind of think he might know what he is talking about. Probably more than Sammy since Tommy actually lives in L.A. If you can believe him, it's great news because this was this summer when this quote was taken.

    Can anyone give me a quick summary of the article? I'm at work, and if I access the Playboy site, the tech-support guys might come rip my computer out of the wall, and then no more links. Scary to even think about.

    Wow! That was the most informative article as of late. Who's the dickhead frome Taproot that said he didn't give a shit? He needs to tap my root so I can blow a surprise in his cereal.

    Dave's in! Dave's in!

    Tommy would probably know also because him and Ed are friends. Or at least I've seen a bunch of pictures with the two.

    I will tell you one thing, Gary got the shit ripped out of him on the video and in the article. Pantera and VH huh? If Dave makes it back huh? Some of those bands were total asses too. Mocking VH, but I guess it might been in a joking manner. But still, Small time jokers ripping on VH. Interesting stuff though. thanks for the link

    Here's the article (you'll have to go there yourself for the video):

    Van Halen
    Overview: What reunion? Van Halen didn't break up. True, but as of now the group is without a lead singer after parting ways with mistake-from-the-get-go Gary Cherone, and no one in their right mind is gonna pay $17.95 to hear Michael Anthony sing. Prior to Cherone, the band entertained a reunion with original frontman David Lee Roth before dormant rancor between Diamond Dave and Eddie expressed itself in a big way. That now infamous debacle came shortly after Sammy Hagar quit or was fired -- depending on whom you believe -- from the group. Now, we'd like to believe Eddie isn't stupid enough to hire a fourth lead singer, and there's no way he's stupid enough to mend fences with Cherone. So, that leaves Hagar and Roth. For now, Hagar is busy working on a solo record and has unorthodox conditions for a possible reunion. "The only Van Halen reunion, not now, [but] in the future that I'd ever be interested in would be the Sam and Dave tour," Hagar told All Star News. "I'm dead serious." In the meantime, rumors abound that Diamond Dave is already back in the fold but the Van Halen camp is keeping it on the Q.T., sensing that the reformation could very easily implode once again.

    Odds of a Reunion With David Lee Roth: 2-to-1. This version of Van Halen is what the public wants to see, and Van Halen could charge $125 a ticket to make them see it. No amount of spin doctoring will ever make us believe Dave and Eddie have kissed and made up, but so long as they promise not to perform anything from Van Halen III or Roth's solo material, we'll let it slide.

    Odds of a Reunion With Sammy Hagar: 8-to-1. Hagar's second go-round on the solo circuit hasn't been the juggernaut that his Cabo Wabo tequila has, so a return to 5150 studios may be in order. He's certainly up for reuniting with Van Halen, especially when the band enters the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in a few years. His conditions, however, for a full-scale reformation seem improbable at best. Diamond Dave and his elephantine ego simply couldn't handle sharing the mike with the Red Rocker in any capacity.

    Odds of Reunion With Gary Cherone: 1000-to-1. There's almost as good a chance that Jim Morrison and Kurt Cobain will spring to life for a Doors/Nirvana stadium tour than this Freddie Mercury wannabe will return to the fold.

    And I have a couple of comments on the article.

    I, for one, WOULD pay to hear Mikey sing. As long as Eddie and Al were backing him up. At this point, my grandpa could sing for them, I'd pay to see it. Just bring it on already! After all the medical problems and what-not are taken care of, of course.

    No DLR solo material on tour? Why not? There's at least a couple of tunes I think they could pull off quite nicely. "Damn Good" could be very interestingly done.

    Why do they say "Freddie Mercury wannabe" like that's a bad thing?
