    It'd have to be Mike in this fictional situation, but it's definitely a gun to my head "choose or die, fucker" type deal for me.

    Mike and Sammy in the real world!

    Easy to answer for me. I think Eddie thrives playing VH with Wolf. I'd like to see these two fellas playing guitar together on stage with a big smile.

    Mike's the only one (besides Gary, but he doesn't count) who hasn't run his yap about other members all the time. If anyone should be in VH, it's Mike.

    He was there at the beginning playing 25 nights in a row in shitty clubs and bars, lugging the equipment in and out every night, etc. He's got blood equity in the band name, he built it up from a high school party band to the biggest band in the world, just like DLR, Ed and Al. When the curtain drops on their last show, Mike should be on that stage.

    Won't happen, but it would be a nice ending.

    This is so easy. Put the original legendary band back together. I have zero desire to ever see Sam grace a VH stage ever again.

    But I still love Wolf and the current version of the band as well.

    I've got nothing against Sam, hell, was listening to some of his solo stuff today as a matter of fact. What he puts out I usually buy, but yeah, I don't want to see him in VH again either.

    If he does, I would still buy it and go to the shows, but it's not want I want to see and hear.

    Mike? Hell yeah, and that's nothing against Wolf. Great player and great guy, but it just isn't the same.

    amen. I still don't even fully grasp why Mike's not in the band. It's beyond ridiculous.

    in 2002 he went to play with Sammy.... even though Edward didn't approve of the idea. Knowing this, he saw his way out.

    Ed has said -- and I believe this to be true -- if he and Val had another child, Dave would still be out of the band too.

    Not saying he didn't say it, but that makes absolutely no sense. What does another kid have to do with it?

    The way South America greets rock bands, I don't understand why they don't go down there every tour.

    Rush didn't even know they had fans down there, finally went and played to the biggest crowds in their career.

    *Paraphrasing from a book* - One of Eddie's biggest regrets, is that there were no more children. "I used to ask my mom 'Where's our bass player? It's no joke, I swear I did!'" - EVH

    Interesting to look back on that comment, now that a Van Halen is playing bass.... I wish Sammy's last name was Van Halen! Lol.
    "There's too many people on this basketball that's floating around the sun, who are too afraid to allow themselves to FEEL" - Edward Van Halen
    "Van Halen was never about the singer..." - a very wise fan.

    I wonder if Ed's major issue with Mike is that he got 1/4 of the publishing all those years. Could Ed have resented that since Mike didn't contribute much if anything to the songwriting? He's even got 1/4th on the Van Halen III songs and he doesn't even play on all the tracks.

    I heard comedian Pat Francis bring this up during one of his "Rock Solid" podcast episodes where they talked about Van Halen. I never thought about it until then. Makes sense. Money is the root of all evil right?
