    First let me state I find Mike's new site awesome. But one thing greatly bothers me.
    I am really shocked by the display of the bio at Mike's new site!
    I don't know if any one has read it, but it actually states that Michael Anthony joined VH BEFORE DLR!!! Any half-deserving fan knows Dave joined first!
    I'm not a Dave-head, but history has to be respected! DLR isn't mentioned once in this bio. Brad must have gone nuts!
    It's ok to be Sammy-biased, but don't distort the facts, dammit!
    They even mentiond Mike's side project with Sammy, Los Tres Gusanos, but no mention of Dave whatsoever.
    And this in an official site!
    When will VH wake up and get rid of Brad Starks, an individual clearly not suited for the task he has been appointed for?

    That's not entirely true - in order for it to mention that Mike joined before Dave, it would've actually had to mention Dave, which as you pointed out later in your post, it doesn't! Whoever put that together (bradman?) should get a boot to the head!

    What the hell? It seems like Brad wants to ignore all three singers Van Halen has had just because none of them are in the band right now (officially, that is [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] ).

    I noticed that too that Dave was not mentioned. Strange strange strange. It's like if any memebers of VH acknowledge Dave's existence that they will be put in prison for life. What are they afraid of? Maybe Brad is not to blame. I'm sure he recieved his orders from someone in the VH camp on how and what he puts in the web-sites. Then agian, maybe not. Maybe he did it on his own. If that is the case then he gets my nomination for jackass of the year.

    A more important question with Mike's site is:

    Do you really think he wrote or even said the first-person stuff written on the main page of that site?

    VH has a long history of deceiving their fans to some degree or another. From lying about their ages to all the BS about '96. They're not often honest with us when it comes to important things.

    i don't know why u guys are all that surprised that Dave isn't mentioned on Mike's site. Hell, Dave's barely mentioned on THe "Official" VH site. And i'm sure if it was at all possible to not mention his name in reagrds to who sang on the albums i'm sure his name wouldn't be there either.

    someone here summed it up best in that it's like if anyone mentions Dave's name it's off to jail...

    ignoring Dave's name is one of the silliest things VH does...

    I see your point Brett, but I don't think Van Halen or even past members of Dave's band are mentioned on his site. I don't even think there's a bio of Dave there - the site is pretty much devoid of useful content as it is. It's just orange. But Mike's and the Van Halen sites do mention Van Halen and for them to gloss over the fact that David Lee Roth was ever in the band just isn't right!

    that's the point, brett
    not that mike isn't mantioned on dave's site.
    but when the Official site tells the history of VH or Mike's site does this they just leave out Dave completely.

    Hey I'm not condoning the actions of the Official Site, to not include the three singers anywhere is absolutely pathetic.

    I have a feeling that Mike had very little to do with his site other than to say, "That looks cool, go with it." No offense to ya Mikey if you did. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    I've personnaly met Mike backstage and talked with him for about 45mn, and he's definitely the coolest of guys. So I'm totally not blaming him, because I also know that he remembers the details of VH's history quite acurately (maybe he's the one who did the least drugs!).
    I would blame it more on "The Machine" that is taking care of those things in the VH camp right now. In this case, it seems that the Machine was represented by Brad.


    P.S.:As for the ages of the band members, remember that it was DLR who forced them to lie on their age. As soon as DLR was out, the truth was re-established.
