    Default Mike's house (tour)

    This video just came up in my YouTube recommended videos. It's six years old, but I did a search and don't see where it's been discussed here before.

    I will never again say, "Poor Mike!"

    Here's a video he made to sell his house a few years ago. Good God. I remember him having galleries of his custom speed boats and hot rods on his site, but this house is ridiculous! He had his own water slide!

    So you got airbrushed off an album cover? You're living large!



    You know Mark Stone looks at this and thinks, "If only I'd taken it all a little more seriously."

    I'd seen this before, yet very cool to watch again with more interest than I did last time.
    Very keen on shows like Beachfront House Hunters, Island Life, and stuff like that, whereas I wasn't before.

    Gorgeous home and property!!!!!!!!! He's done more than very well for himself.
    Too bad this vid is so old.... I've been doing a lot of overtime lately, and had I known it was for sale? I feel confident that I could've placed a firm offer.... For the bottom row of crystal in the main chandelier.

    And nothing else!

    It still sucks that Eddie shit all over Mike. From what I have read (Book and articles over the years) Mike had to re-do his contract as early as 1984 (the album) and he would not get any publishing credit. I know he also said he had to give up rights to Van Halen for the 2004 tour.

    Ed = great guitar player + shitty human being. Then again what do you expect from a person who thought he got someone pregnant by receiving a BJ. HAHAHAHA.

    Any copyright issues with the music used in the video?
    SOME VH LINKS CLASSICS


    "Sammy is fat, Dave is bald, Mike is next in line to be the Pope, Eddie is a drunk, Wolfie is fat, Gary is gay, CVH is VH, Mike is VH, Sammy can outsing Dave on a tequilla hangover, Eddie is a meth head, How Many Say I is the worst VH song ever, Up for Breakfast is a close second, Dave was horrible at radio and everybody hates the assless chaps.
    Ok I think that covers everything." Ziggysmalls

    "I sense that some of our newer passengers may be nervous due to the sudden turbulence. Please be seated, this is simply a normal part of the periodic ride.
    I didn't say we'll get to the destination, but until Alex comes out a says what a complete waste of carbon DLR is, we're still climbing, so strap yourselves in.
    Those of you who have been on this ride before, the hottie in the mini will be around shortly with your drinks......." Red

    And we wonder why aging rock stars don't want to leave their homes and live out of a tour bus and hotels for an extended period of time.

    I can remember a boxer once saying "hard to get up at 4:00am when you are sleeping in silk sheets."
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    A man's rights rests in three boxes: the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box

    Same here but I doubt he's in the low rent district lol.
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.
