    Default Mick Jones of Foreigner was on Howard Stern

    Mick Jones of Foreigner was on Howard Stern and dished a little Van Halen info about the past.

    Admits Eddie being a control freak

    Fist fights usually happened between Alex and Eddie after their father would come up and visit.

    Admits substances going around

    Sammy was very mellow, and worked mostly with him

    Calls Michael Anthony the nicest guy you could ever meet.

    Thinks he wasn't asked to do the next album and was a little hurt not to do the next album. Says Eds ego might not have wanted to admit that someone else helped them out to make a hit record.

    Ed was very confident about the way he wanted things

    Yep!
    "Keep honking buddy. I'm reloading..." -The Mard

    "......HEY!.............alright............." -BIG FOOT

    " I know what you're thinking: "Do I want to watch Mard? We know that horses were very strong and could actually stop airplanes from flying away. The ones made out of stone called "statues" -- occasionally came to life and rode off is a colonial cliche. How many more times do we need to hear about how the oppressive Raj's wore villainous black capes, crafted cunning plastic masks to impersonate people, and drained all the blood from their slaves so they could keep the fluid in bottles in their dungeons? I mean, YAWN!

    But if you're willing to sit through this dry sort of historical drama one more time -- or even just this dry historical review -- you will not be disappointed. In fact, some of you might just learn something they didn't teach you in school!-

    Whqat do you know, the Van Halen bros were drunken buffoons and Sammy and Mike were cool as can be.

    Yeah, that sounds about right.

    interesting insight. i find it interesting that mick says that they would fight after their father would visit and that he was very hard on them almost it would seem an abusive relationship, never knew that.

    Jones said Hagar was mellow due to "substances" around the studio. Gotta relay all the info, not just some.

    And you should further state that Mike Jones clarified it to "Tequila".

    That's called being discrete.

    I've never quite equated tequila with mellow...

    Its usually violence, stupidity, or both from what I have seen being around my share of drunks.

    Disagree, its the best buzz booze can give and is rather soothing.

    I always thought Mike was a class act. This clinches it.
    Right here I say....
