    Default Michael Anthony

    Mike keeps track of what goes on here at the links. How do I know? I asked him at a car show in San Dimas, Ca. back in 2011. If he is not involved in Van Halen's future plans I would urge him to put out some statement saying so to avoid people getting their hopes up. For him to do so is no big deal.

    I wouldn't be surprised if MA is back for one last ca$h grab. The last tour lost wind pretty quick. Dave knows MA would add headlines and bring people in. He was talking him up last year. Ed would never fire his son, but if Wolf gave him a blessing while he is in Tremonti, I guess it's feasible. Maybe MA can help the poor live vocals. I'm a huge Dave fan, but 2012 was rough.

    If he is in, he has a nozzle and blinders on. Don't expect him to say anything. If he isn't, he will tell us.

    If these guys do get it on for another tour or mini tour see them early. Even if you have to travel and pay some bucks for a plane tic.

    I really, really don't think it would make a hair of a difference. We all love Mike here, but to the average fan the reunion was Dave and Eddie. Half the people at a show probably couldn't even name Mike as the original bassist. That's no slam on him, just the reality of how far we are from normal fans. Tons of people probably don't know Alex's name either or that he's Eddie's brother. The idea that Mike would add headlines is pretty naïve, I think. Besides, it's all moot. I can't possibly imagine Mike being back. Ever. If I was him I wouldn't do it even if asked. I doubt he needs the money and he was treated like garbage. Erasing him from the albums alone is unforgivable.

    Well I'm certainly glad you're not Mike, snowdog. Erasing him from the cover was an absolutely shitty thing to do. Mike himself has said he was hurt by it. But like Mike playing with Sam isn't the unpardonable sin, the album cover fiasco isn't either. Mike has also never said never. All one has to do, is offer forgivess they've been denying. Wolf will be the one to set everything in motion. As hard as it will be, I will resist the urge to say, " I told you so." And as far as it being a cash grab, no need to grab my money, I'll gladly part with it to see the Classic lineup one more time.

    I'm not saying he would turn it down, or even that he should, just that I would hope that I would. Erasing him from the band's history is unbelievably horrible as you agreed with, but that's not all. It's being erased, and being pressured to give up rights, and being kicked out of a band for playing with a friend when VH was doing nothing anyway (Dave had far more to do with that tour than Mike, and yet he's in VH), and a whole history of being wanted out of the band since at least the early 80s. Being called "the bass player" and "Sobolewski", and other childish things, Eddie's whole attitude about Mike leaching off him going back decades. I don't know, it's been an extremely abusive relationship.

    I just think it's far too much of a fantasy to even worry about it though. I would be more shocked to see Mike back in the band than I was to see Dave back. Eddie doesn't think he needs Mike, sadly....
