    After Michael's jamming with Sam on the Sam/Dave tour, it is very legitimate to wonder if Mike is still a part of Van Halen.
    Because after what he said at Peppers just a month ago, the conclusion that he's not a part of VH anymore could very well be made. I stress COULD be made.
    Anyone who was there can attest that when people asked him if he was going to join the Sam/Dave tour and jam with Sam, he made the kind of frown which doesn't leave much to speculation as to what would happend if he did. He said he couldn't do it. And also said he was dying to play live!
    Obvisouly he changed his mind since May 5th.
    Now the question is, did the VH bros change their mind too and withrdew their ultimatum.
    If not, I am afraid that Michael Anthony has been fired from Van Halen.

    Now of course one could say that the larger question is "is there a Van Halen anymore?"...

    i hope he's still a part.
    and, i don't really know brad's standards, but i would hope that a member leaving the band would be considered "newsworthy". although, you never really know.

    Mike could be out of the band since they don't post any 'newsworthy' information on their site.

    I think Mike is still in the band and just doing side projects until Ed and Al decide which direction to take. When will they decide? Who knows.

    Standards?

    P. Braddy? LOL

    If leaving/getting-dropped-by the label that VH was at for 23 years wasn't "newsworthy" why would firing the bassist the band has had for 28 years be?

    I don't think Mike's been fired. Yet. But, since it would be an amazingly retarded move to fire him, I fully expect the move to be made. [img]graemlins/drunk.gif[/img]

    If you want to know whether or not Mikey's been "fired", look for a new webmaster for his site. I seriously doubt Ed would let Brad continue running Mike's site if Mikey was fired. Maybe, but if he'd fire Mike after 25+ years over playing a few shows, I doubt he'd let PBraddy consort with the enemy.

    I don't think mike was fired. I think he just got so tired of sitting on his ass and went out did something about. If they did fire mike from VH i would be pissed. And i think everybody would be to. Mike is one of the most loved by the VH fans. He is just the coolest guy i have seen.

    If Mike was not in Van Halen, then there really would not be Van Halen. He's such an integral part of their sound with his vocal harmonies. At that point, I would want Ed to just call the band Edward Van Halen and be solo because that's way too many people gone from the original lineup to continue as Van Halen the band.
    Could this be magic?
