    Default Dear Journalists...and James:

    If given the opportunity to ask the band questions are you going to throw softball questions at them? I really wish you would press them about the whole Michael Anthony thing. Probably one of the reasons they don't do interviews. Now before all of you get your panties in a bunch and tell me to get over it, let me remind you that I'm sure most of you (myself included) wined for 20 years about Dave vs Sam, so piss off!

    So here's my list of non-softball questions. If you don't I'm just assuming that you're kissing their asses.

    1. When their website was relaunched a few years ago who's idea was it to replace MA with Eddies kid on the cover of VH & why? Why wasn't Dave ever replaced with Sammy?

    2. Did Mike actually say he was quitting the band?

    3. Did you expect Mike to sit around and wait for a VH record to be recorded? What's wrong with jamming with other artists while waiting?

    4. Why did it take you 14 years to complete another full length album? (geez I wonder why MA wanted to get out there and play???)

    5. Was MA playing with Sammy just and excuse to kick MA out since it's been documented over the years that Billy Sheehan has been asked on numerous occasions (as far back as 1980 and as recent as the last tour with DLR) to replace Michael Anthony?

    6. If Mike didn't say he quit, didn't you at least owe it to him after 30 years of service to tell him they're were going in a different direction instead of him finding out on the internet?

    7. The fans have been waiting for an ORIGINAL LINEUP reunion for years. Then you get Dave back and kick Mike out. Do you feel you pulled the rug out from underneath the fans again? As you can tell, they're very passionate about the band

    If anyone has anymore questions about this I'd love to hear it.
    I can't remember which comedian said it, about the current state of Van Halen, but he said right now, Van Halen is like a really hot playboy playmate with a prosthetic leg.

    BRING BACK THE CLASSIC LINEUP!

    I can't even have an opinion on ANYTHING anymore unless it's exactly what everyone else thinks...oh and if I do it means I HATE this album, and hope it fails. Man some of you can fuck off...seriously. - BRETT

    "You make music for people. Otherwise, just play in your closet. And how do you reach the most people? By giving them the band that they know. To do it any other way would be selfish.” - EVH, June 19, 2015 Billboard Magazine

    "That's a load of crap. The fans know Michael Anthony." - Me, regarding the above quote from EVH, June 19, 2015

    No Bozos. Put down the gun.
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    Fair enough questions (I suppose) but this is presser/concert concerning the upcoming Van Halen line-up, album and tour. Within that context, it would be rude for anybody invited there to bring up these types of questions. Once the ball gets rolling, they'll be plenty opportunity to ask those questions to VH brothers in interviews. I'm disappointed Mikey's not there too but I realized long time ago to just move on. If your not into this incarnation of Van Halen, don't buy the album, don't go to concerts. That's the best way you can protest.

    Look at me, look at me.

    Rather than post this in the thread dedicated to "What questions should James ask", I'll start my own thread on the same thing just to be sure everybody sees my post.

    You serious Clark?

    God you being from Cleveland makes me wonder how you can even be a sports fan. If you can take the abuse that the Browns, Indians and Cavs have given you over the years, the bullshit with VH is a walk in the park. Ravens winning a Super Bowl a few years after the move is much worse than this.
