    Mike has a phone, and a car.

    Not too hard to call him, not to hard to drive to his house, he hasn't moved. Since it appears from interviews that Mike didn't attempt to reach out, that for Mike there was nothing to be said. If he feels bad they didn't reconnect, that's on him.

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

    Yeah. I am quite sure Sammy at one point told Mike "hey I called Eddie. He is sick. Really sick. I know he raked you over the coals but here is his number if you want to call" A few weeks later probably the same thing happened. Obviously Eddie could have asked Sammy for Mike's number too.

    However for whatever reason they didn't talk. That's on Mike and Eddie. Sammy sucked it up and he and Ed had closure. So good for Sammy

    Eddie had publically humiliated Mike, so maybe Mike thought it was Eddie who was the one who had to make the call.

    I worked for a guy longer than Mike was in Van Halen. I did ok money wise but I won't be calling him on his deathbed nor will he call me on mine. That's life.

    There is probably a lot of truth in this statement. Sad, but true.

    Yeah I get that and understand it if that is the reason.

    Just don't get too worked up over Mike never having a chance to talk. He had a chance. He chose not to. Just like Eddie chose not to. I mean he is emotional about Eddie leaving so if that's how he felt, well maybe he should ahve called. Maybe he regrets it now? I don't know but he had a chance. Can't do anything about it now.

    Whatever.

    "Mike's a class act".

    The guy GAVE UP his royalties. I do not feel one ounce of sympathy. Yea, I would be mad over hurtful comments but adults get over that shit.

    I guarantee you had the kitchen sink tour happened, Mike would suck it up again.

    You know... "for the fans".

    There is something deplorable about Sammy continuously bring up his conversation with Ed. The man was dying for God's sake, can you please put away the "I was gonna be the singer again" mantra? The Hagar era just didn't have the impact of the Roth era and it is as simple as that. Let it go already with the Dave bashing.

    As much as I wanna say that you’re obsessed with Sam and you need to relax.


    I have to agree. He needs to just lay off of what he’s been saying. It’s almost been a year, now.

    Leave it alone, Sam.

    Oh I'm relaxed. I just shake my head at this point. And I dont think commenting in a thread on a message forum equates obsession. I think I've made 3 or 4 posts in this thread since it started and this is the only place I discuss anything VH, as this is not really a topic of discussion with my wife or kids or co-workers lol.

    I'll wait for the day one year from now when Sam is a prick because he never brings up Ed anymore... as much as he talks.

    For the Mike thing, you also have to realize that he has a family and they were also hurt by this whole thing. Mike's temperament is surprisingly zen-like, from all accounts, the guy really has a calm, sunny disposition. I don't think everyone in his family is the same, which is to be expected. So Mike's tendency to accept a lot of things was balanced by the outrage felt by some of his family members. He had to take everything into account when making decisions. Surely it's a hard call, I don't know what I would've done in his shoes. I'm not even sure we know of everything that happened between them (Ed & Mike).
