    The following update has been added to Mike's site - now why would he need a new Jack Daniels bass....?

    Somebody Get Me A Shot!
    September 12, 2002

    Word has it that Michael and a group of hard rockin' engineers, sleep-depraved techies and whiskey-guzzling madmen are hard at work over at Yamaha designing a brand new version of Michael's infamous Jack Daniel's bass. Dubbed the JD Bass of the New Millenium, the axe is expected to include a few surprises mixed in with Yamaha's top quality craftsmanship. We'll keep you posted as construction continues.

    The only reason to even do something like this (other than the 'because he can' thing) is in preparation for a new tour/promotion I would think. Let's hope.

    It would be hard pressed to think that they are designing and sponsoring new equipment for an artist that wasn't expected to do something in the near future.

    Didnt Mike have a new YAMAHA bass just a year or so ago, that he has only used on stage with Sammy's band on this tour ?

    Sounds like it will be a kool bass.

    Cool! I've always thought that it was a neat design for a guitar. Looks like a little bit of the old is coming back. Will Van Halen be back?

    What if.....

    Sammy returns right,
    He's got his tequila to sell/promote.
    Mike basically is an "un-official" endorser of Jack Daniels and uses a new JD bass.
    Could Sammy be setting up a marketing deal with JD?

    But on the other hand,
    Dave is a JD drinker,
    Mike basically is an "un-official" endorser of Jack Daniels and uses a new JD bass.
    Could this be magic and are VH getting ready to take their whiskey home?

    At least it's not a Cabo Tequila bass.

    That would tell a lot.

    you know, normally you don't like to read into stuff like this cuz ya know better, especially those of us who have been here a long time

    now i can see mikey gettin a new bass...ala his jalapeno bass he just got done from yamaha.

    but if he's gettin a revamped "JD" bass done, then chances are van halen will be back in the near future. the JD bass is part of the van halen legacy.

    just that there's 2 questions....which part of vh, and when?!

    my bet is that we get some news by the end of january. and relatively speaking, that's not long conidering how long we've waited

    why is your hunch the end of january?

    i always keep in mind eddie's statement back in may (or whenever) that he is completely healthy and ready to get back to the rock and roll and fun...

    without that statement- i would probably buy more into the theory that VH is completely done for ever... but if that were so- why would ed issue that statement?

    end of january sounds fine to me- definitely better than NEVER!

    i remember reading about th JD bass somewhere months, if not a year, ago. it's nothing new. mike said something about jack daniels shooting out of the headstock or something silly like that.
