    Default Michael Anthony Sobolewski

    So MA has polish heritage. That's something what everyone knows. But does anyone know if he actually knows polish language (at least some words), has ever been to Poland or at least eats polish sausage?

    You mean cubic zirconia?

    He's from Chicago and most Polish-Americans from there have been in the country since the late XIXth century/early XXth century, so you're talking 3 generations at least. Doubt he knows anything past "dziendobre panie!"

    I first found out about Micheal Anthony's surname from the songwriting credits on the back of a german bootleg cd titlled " Live USA 1977 ", it is the well known 12-20-77 Pasedena Civic show, that I got years ago at a flea market.

    EVH referred to Micheal Anthony by his real surname ONCE, on the Howard Stern show back in '96. Since then, so many of these cheap mouthy punk assed VH fans use this name constantly , as what their witless glue sniffing damaged brains percieve to be a clever derogatory putdown. Basically, it is their way of calling him a " pollack ".

    Then they refer to Edward as " Van Heineken " or " Edwad ", oh how clever of them. Or EVH and AVH together can be referred to as " the sisters ". Then of course their neighborhood is always called " Howdy Doody Mountain ". They are all so sharp and witty, such a cool bunch of fans to re-use some of Dave's quotes 10 years later. What a pathetic bunch of fucktards.

    NO. I'm pretty sure my opinion was valid. What else is the purpose of calling Micheal Anthony " Sobolewski, if not to be some sort of cheap shot.

    Obviously Eddie has nothing against polish folks , since his new wife is one too, but how do you explain the fans using it so often on certain websites. It IS a putdown, make no mistake about that.

    I also see now the thread starter is actually from Poland, so maybe it was intended as some sort of heritage topic, but if so, why then was the phrase " cubic zirconia " thrown into the post. Either way, I'm not polish so I really don't care either way, but it seems pretty obvious to me what these " expressions " are all about. The band members all know each other, and can and do say whatever they want about each other, but when these fans on the internet continuoisly copy what's been said once ten years ago, that strikes me as a tad bit rude and off-putting. Oh well. Typical internet bullshit. Yeah, I know, if 'ya don't like it, dont read it. Stupid pictures btw.

    Heisenberg is essentially right. There's an underlying insult in invoking "Sauce Sobelewski." But I do think that picture is funny, and every time I hear or see "Howdy Doody Mountain" I laugh my ass off.

    I think everyone that heard Edward call Mike that, knew it was a dig. I also don't think the OP meant it as one. The CZ comment baffles me though. Other then that, I have no idea what this thread is about.

    Also, Ed called Mike this supposed insult (his birth name) on Stern in 2006, not '96. So, if you're going to rant... get your facts straight. And on top of it, I rarely see anyone on this site use his last name or the terms "sisters" or "cubic zirconia". Who gives a rat's ass what terms someone uses on other sites?

    And, yes... this thread does suck.

    That said, Mike's a class act.

    I'm sure the band has called each other worse things before.

    Anything left in this thread? Looks like it can be put out of it's misery.
