    Default Melodicrock/Mikey-new interview

    Yet another interview of Mikey promoting Sammy's summer tour. On Melodicrock.com it's broken up into 3 parts. The only one really worth listening to is part 3 when he's asked about Van Halen.
    Bottom line is this: Mikey says "Van Halen is Eddie and Alex Van Halen."
    I don't know, it seems that I should believe what Mike says (nothing going on at all in the VH world), over what Roth says (a reunion is inevitable).

    Unless the reunion of Roth may happen with out Mike. That would be dumb to do but if seem some crazy things happen throughout the years with this band.

    Wouldnt it just be 'typical' for this band to finally put the pieces in place for a CVH reunion and have Mike NOT involved?
    There would be no closure still...

    However, that being said, they always have an out..
    Mikey may not currently be a member of VH..But a CVH REUNION means just that..REUNITING the classic lineup. Ed could still have it with mikey involved, but not technically be a member of 'current' VH..

    geez.... Its not Van Halen without Mike.

    I just think its because Ed isnt able to do anything right now, for whatever personal issues he has.

    To be honest, it sounds like with VH only being "Eddie & Alex" and Mike not talking to Eddie since the last tour, Mike may well be a permanent ex member. Sorry to say folks but VH is pretty much done from what it sounds. It sure the hell doesn't sound positive of anything remotely happening in the near future. I for one am not getting my hopes up.

    Dave would never, ever, do a CVH Reunion without Mike.


    Bottom line. He's said it before as well.

    I must call bullshit on this one. DLR has repeatedly shown that he doesn't give much of a crap about anyone but himself. See the 1996 reunion attempt as a perfect example. He might do and say all the right things initially, but as soon as he has a big crowd in front of him, Dave doesn't give a shit (or even notice) if ANYONE is on stage with him.

    The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.

    This next part could really confuse things. Let's stay focused. #asis

    A VH show without Mike wouldn't feel like a VH show.

    He's the "common man". The rock. The foundation. He's the one that reminds us that they're just "like us".

    I love VH, but the thought of a showing going on without MA seems like a very bad idea.
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    While this may or may not be true, Dave is smart and he knows that it doesn't mean shit unless it is a FULL CVH reunion.

    No Mike, No reunion.

    I agree...Dave would make sure Mike is included.
    And, I tend to think, if it was offered to Mike, that Sammy would tell him he should do it...
    if, for nothing else, closure for the fans...a last tour of the Mighty Van Halen!!

    As for Dave saying "a reunion is inevitable"...he's been saying that for years...I don't know as if
    he is really any closer today that he was 3 years ago or if he's really spoken with Ed or Al at all.

    Van Halen did speak out against the Rockstar rumors, didn't they?
    You might think they'd speak out on this...in some form!?!

    What I would like to know is how a guy who has been with the band from the beginning goes from a band member to a hired gun?

    Talk about a guy getting the ultimate shit on. Unfucking believeable.

    That's Eddie for ya!! Of course, I don't know what Alex's opinion is...he's usually the "spokesperson"
    of the 'group that doesn't talk much'. They BOTH spoke out when Sammy "left" and after the 1996 Dave fiasco.

    This whole thing w/Mike is probably more Ed than Al, but I believe if anyone should stop all this bullshit and get everyone in the same room again (Dave or Sammy, I don't give a shit at this point - I just wanna hear some new VH ), it should be Al. If he is still friends w/Sammy, why wouldn't this be possible? Because of Ed...

    Bottom line is Al and Ed are still brothers, and no matter what happens, family is family. Although I agree with a lot of posts in the "Tough Love" thread", I don't think Al would ever side w/anyone other than his brother - it would kill both of them.

    You guys are fooling yourselves if you think "no Mikey" would keep DLR from doing a VH reunion.
