    Let's assume, for the sake of this topic, that neither Sam nor Dave will rejoin the band. If that is the case, the ONLY way for Van Halen to retain any credibility (musically and otherwise) is to go out on the road with Mikey playing bass and singing. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Think about it - we all know that Mike can sing. He can certainly do that and play bass simultaneously. Ed and Al won't have to deal with "lead singer disease". The fans (who seem to be forgotten in all this) get what we want: Van Halen out on the road. They could even record a few songs and put out an EP. I'd like to know what the board thinks.

    No, then after a few months Eddie would be telling the press that the next time that he sees Mikey that he'd better be wearing a cup. Then all of the brothers problems would all be Mikey's fault.

    Right on Brother! Give the gig to Mike - he's the ultimate company man.

    After seeing Roth the other night - call Sammy and if they can't resolve it give it to Mike.

    Whether Dave returns, Sammy returns, they get a fourth singer, or if Mikey takes over the vocals, I want a new album of new material to kick it off.

    Which leads to a huge problem if Mikey is going to be the frontman; who is going to write the lyrics? You hate to make a sweeping judgement off of only one song, but How Many Say I has me PRAYING that Eddie leaves the lyric writing to someone else.

    And if Mikey is singing lead, who is going to sing those amazing background vocals that are such a signature of the Van Halen sound?

    I'd be interested to hear it, but it doesn't excite me much!

    Good topic for the Opinions/Speculation forum, keep it going over there. [img]smile.gif[/img]
