    Default Rate your missing Mikey on a scale of 1-100

    I'm somewhere in between. Probably about 50. I actually don't mind Wolfgang. I like his background vocals and think he adds something to the band. Michael Anthony is part of that original core and sound though. But I don't think it will effect the record or tour that much. I've never been opposed to change though. I liked Sammy too.

    I was just listening to the Quebec show that was done outdoors. It was pretty obvious to me the band got better as the tour went along. Wolfgang also got much better. I think they sounded amazing Mikey or not.

    10,000.

    Like his background vocals? What background vocals? The ones on a tour that nobody knows exactly what was going on there? What does he add that Mike didn't? I don't understand that at all. You've never heard him play or sing one note on an album.

    I really am amazed at people who are totally fine with Mike being gone. It boggles my mind.

    10,000+1 here (just to one up Brett of course).

    Saw them in Boston with Wolfie on the "toy bass", and clearly there were using pre-recorded Mikey vox. Wolfie I am sure cannot hit that sweet spot that Mikey hits, nor could Wolfie actually play a note.

    Bring back Mikey!!!!!

    I miss him for sure. Wolfgang hasn't earned the position. Simple as that. But life goes on.

    He was in a no win situation. He was a stifled bass player. As is Wolfgang you can be assurred. Yes he's more happy and I'm happy for him.

    84 on the last tour. Zero now. He seems better off with Chickenfoot and actually making music.

    Answer this and be honest.
    While on any of the Van Halen tours, did you get up and use the bathroom or get beers during Mike's bass solo?

    I have to add to this. I am guilty of going to get beers during his solo. It was boring, sorry. But that really has nothing to do with his playing on the songs and his backing vocals.
    I do miss him being in the line up.
