    Interesting listen. He talks about Edwards time signature. Looking back on Edwards comment about having to show Mike how to play certain songs, doesn't seem like the slam it sounded/read like. This is by Mikes own admission.

    If I remember correctly Mike was supposed to play one of those gigs other than the one he speaks about here.

    I think he was going to show up to some of DLR's retirement shows that got cancelled by COVID.

    None of their memories were ever too good, outside of remembering chord progressions, and now they are all old.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

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

    Yeah... all due respect to him but the "last reunion tour" wasn't "20 years ago." It was 9.

    2004 had three original members. So did 2007/2008, 2012/2013, and 2015.

    I think Mike meant his last reunion tour, which was 2004...20 years ago.

    Of course, we can’t know for sure if it was a slip of the tongue or not, but I’ll submit that both he and Sammy have both made references in interviews together more than once over the years to wanting to “get the original band back together,” and they weren’t talking about CVH.

    Neither Mike or Sammy are saying Van Halen started in 1985 - relax.

    As a matter of fact, Mike just went on stage yesterday to play ATBL with Green Day. He's representin' CVH - he's the only one left of the OGs playing 'em CVH songs live.

    Not unrelaxed, LD. Just making an observation.
