    I swear I remember some time ago Reading an interview with Mike at the VHND Where he talks a lot about The possibility of Working with Dave.
    Did Anyone out there download this before Grant removed it?
    Also, When is his upcomming interview with Yamaha?

    5150: I'm a little depressed now. I need some cheer ups from you.

    Mike: You can't be more depressed than I am! I wish I had something I could
    tell you. Right now, the only thing I can say to
    cheer you up is that three weeks ago Eddie went for his hip operation and
    everything went great. He's recuperating right now.

    5150: That's good news! But what happened with Gary?

    Mike: It was a mutual thing. Gary did leave the band because of writing
    differences, stuff like that. After the holidays, when
    Ed gets better, we're gonna see what's going to happen. It could be a
    reunion with one of the others, with Dave or Sam. We
    haven't decided anything yet.

    5150: What are your feelings about this?

    Mike: It's very frustrating.

    5150: On stage the band never sounded as good as the last tour.

    Mike: I totally agree. We obviously played music that we hadn't done, some
    of it, in twenty years. Right now, I guess the
    main thing is to wait until Eddie's well. Within a few months he'll be able
    to jump off his ass again. We're gonna take it slow
    this time and we don't want to make any mistakes.

    5150: When Gary joined the band, Edward said something like 'if this bombs
    I'll quit Van Halen and start writing film
    music'...

    Mike: (laughs) No. I don't think he's going to do that. He also told people
    that he would quit and take up playing the tuba.

    5150: Well, he started to play cello!

    Mike: It's in your bones, you know. We really have to think this one out
    whether we will get a new singer. I don't know if that
    would be the correct thing to do, at this point...whether we can settle
    differences with Sammy or come back with a reunion
    tour with Dave. So this is what we have to think out. I really don't know
    what to think because I think there are pluses and
    minuses for each thing. We'll probably wait until the holiday is over and
    Eddie is pretty much back to normal. And then him,
    Alex and I get together and then we'll see what's the best way to go.

    5150: You must have strange feelings towards this situation because all the
    splits didn't go very well.

    Mike: That's why it will be very...if we decide that we want to try
    something again with one of those guys then we definitely all
    have to get together and try to work out our differences, the problems that
    we had.

    5150: I guess it would be a major sell out if Dave returns.

    Mike: Oh yeah. I think Dave would probably come back. The reasons why it
    didn't work out after the 'Best of' were kind of
    silly reasons. Mostly on Dave's part. I don't know...it's kind of
    frustrating because I got a new guitar deal I'm working on with
    Yamaha guitars. I'd like everything to work out with a big new tour. I
    definitely think that whatever we do, we're gonna kick
    some major ass.

    5150: Last time you were not very happy with the return of Dave and if you
    have to tour with him now...

    Mike: See, we'd have to put aside certain things, certain feelings. It's for
    the best, we feel that's for the best for the fans.

    5150: I think the fans will love it.

    Mike: Obviously, if Dave goes out with us, we can't play any of the Sammy
    material because Dave wouldn't be able to sing it.

    5150: And the other way around. I mean, Sammy was not very happy to sing the
    old stuff.

    Mike: Exactly. See, we really would have to work out some things.

    5150: I don't know if this rumor on the Internet is true, but was Ray
    Danniels fired?

    Mike: ...yes, Ray Danniels is no longer managing us.

    5150: A lot of things are happening around Van Halen.

    Mike: Ooh yes!!

    5150: Now that rumor is true, there's a bigger chance that Sammy will return
    because Ray Danniels was one of the reasons
    that he left.

    Mike: Yes, that was a big reason why he left. The vision that Ray had was
    not the way we wanted to be managed in the
    future. We had different ideas as far as what we wanted and that didn't
    agree with Ray. I think it will be for the better for us.

    5150: It seems that Sammy said, some time ago, that he wanted to do a 'Sam &
    Dave Tour'. That's pretty ridiculous, don't
    you think?

    Mike: I think it's pretty ridiculous too. That's just a rumor. I think
    somebody talked to Sammy, and Sammy said that as a
    joke in an interview and they printed it.

    5150: The name of the band slipped my mind right now, but there is a band
    touring with two singers.

    Mike: Oh really?

    5150: But I guess that's impossible for Van Halen. That wouldn't work.

    Mike: No, I don't think so. If we could work out something like that, it
    would be our last tour anyway. I mean, what would you
    do after that?

    5150: Maybe it's your turn, Mike.

    Mike: Oh jeez, I don't need that kind of pressure. If I could sing a song
    live, maybe sing one thing on the album, that's fine
    with me.

    5150: Did you hear about D.L.R. doing all the Van Halen stuff on his last
    tour?

    Mike: Yeah, someone gave me a video of him playing in Seattle, Washington. I
    guess he was opening up for Bad
    Company?

    5150: Yes, that's right.

    Mike: I got the video, and all the stuff except for two songs is all Van
    Halen.

    5150: What's your feeling about that? Don't you think that's strange?

    Mike: Yeah, in fact D.L.R. has a cover band of Van Halen. The guitar player
    who was
    playing with him is in the band The Atomic Punks. It feels weird that the
    guitar player is
    copying Ed's solo note for note. It's like a total Van Halen Tribute band
    starring David
    Lee Roth. (laughs)

    Right: Mike jamming with the Atomic Punks - March 14, 1998.

    5150: I've got to ask you about the rumor that you and Ed have jammed with
    David
    Coverdale.

    Mike: We've heard about that one too! Actually the latest rumor I heard was
    on the
    radio: Sebastian Bach. But I also heard that Skid Row is getting back
    together with him.

    5150: Oh, I didn't even know they'd split up.

    Mike: When Sammy left the band, my technician Kevin did some shows with Skid
    Row and Sebastian Bach was telling him
    'Kevin, I was born to sing with Van Halen. You've got to get me in that
    band!" (laughs) Oh, he's a big Van Halen fan.

    5150: To close this conversation with something positive...

    Mike: Yeah, you've got to keep it positive.

    5150: For this issue I'm doing a story about how Mighty the Mighty Van Halen
    was, this century. Did you know that Van Halen
    is on number 11 in the list of best selling artists in the U.S.?

    Mike: Oh really?

    5150: Van Halen sold more records in the U.S. than the Rolling Stones.

    Mike: That's good to know.

    5150: I knew Van Halen was big but when I saw that list, I was pretty
    amazed.

    Mike: We can't let that die.

    5150: And did you that Van Halen is in the new edition of the Guinness Book
    of Records?

    Mike: Oh, no! I didn't know that either!

    5150: Van Halen is the band with the most number one hits in the Billboard
    Mainstream Rock List. Eleven number one hits.

    Mike: Oh really? And that's in the Guinness Book of Records? I think I'm
    gonna pick that up.

    5150: You're done with U.S. Festival; it's no longer mentioned any more. So
    I thought you might like to know this.

    Mike: That's great to know. There will be more good news next year!

    Yeah WhiteBoy, that was a good read. I hadn't seen that before. I guess that clears up the Ray Daniels mystery, and in a GOOD way. (big sigh of relief ...)

    Push-Poop. LOL!

    I guess this explains your paranoia from the Rumor Mill, earlier, eh?

    "Push" came to shove. Didn't it, "Miss Piggy?" hahahaha

    "Boogie Woogie Woogie!" hehehehe

    "The Real Deal Watthi! Yea!!" LMAO!

    Watthi = Push = bigtallguy = Titebunz = globby = froggyman = giant = gigglegiggle = Truth (but ONLY at DLRArmy. ) = 38,748,756 other names... hahaha

    Real bright game, turdy. You post as Push here at the links, talking about how accurate the guy "Truth" is at the army. Only thing is - Truth is you. How utterly brilliant.

    Your next alias should be "Makes An Ass Of Himself."

    (Psst... No onw will *EVER* guess it's you... hahahaha )

    You lose.

    you guys are so optimistic about VH and dave together again, sorry to break it to you guys, but sammy is the singer, so why not enjoy VH while they are together, cause in a flash it can be over AGAIN
