Happy holidays to everybody!!

Well, the holidays are already here and it seems like the year just flew by!! First of all I would like to say..."THANK-YOU" to everyone who came out and supported us on tour this past summer!! You guys are the reason I still love to go on tour, and as long as you want to hear the songs, I'll be out there bashing away and having a great time...
I don't know exactly what the new year will bring, but whatever happens, I 'll keep all of you posted as to what is going on in my world. Have a safe and rockin' holiday season, and don't "BASH IT UP" too hard!! I'll definitely see you all in 2007!!......Michael

Merry Christmas to you and yours.
I can't wait to receive the bass autographed by "The Other Half" from your recent contest!
What a fantastic Christmas present!
I can't believe the person that was originally selected never claimed the prize.

I still can't believe the person originally picked never claimed that fantastic prize. I'll be displaying it w/the VH Greatest Hits CD that you and Sammy signed for me when I sat in the "golden circle" for the reunion tour. It's too bad that the brothers have alienated you for chillin' w/Sammy.
Fuc% them and their half-assed reunion! You and Sammy were "The Other Half", maybe they should call themseves "Half Assed"? (ha-ha)

I was so glad to read your post stating "Definitely see you all in 2007". I am confident that whatever tour you decide to go on, it will be a good one. I'm glad you are now in a position to make choices that are in you and your fans best interest instead of waiting around for EVH to get motivated. I love Eddie, but I have to say that seeing you with Sammy in 2006 at the UMB Bank Pavilion was a much better show than the 2004 VH show that I saw at the Savvis Center. The difference is that you and Sammy actually care about what your fans want. That makes all the difference.

Happy Hoildays!

Hey Mike, please talk to Dave and try to put together some sort of plan to deal with EVH. There are millions of us fans waiting for a true CVH reunion.

well i wish someone would address the issue about are you or arent you in vanhalen anymore, eddie vanhalen has announced that wolfgang is the new bassist but no news here or on, fan's are aggrivating at times but we put you where you are and i sometimes we go to far thinking we need to know every detail of your live's, but seeing how this is band related i wish someone would address the details of this new's. hopefully this will get answered... bj5150

Mike, you're awesome man...I gotta admit this new lineup change w/ VH is damn upsetting - you embody the spirit of that band far more than the brothers do at this point, and they're out of their minds not to see it.

Looking forward to rocking out w/ ya in 2007!!

Merry Christmas. I know you will continue to rock us in 2007 and beyond.

Everyone knows that there's no real VH reunion without you onboard!

Take care.

Hi Mike. It's a crying shame what's happened to Van Halen. You and Sammy as The Other Half are playing the material much better than the drunken harrang that was the 2004 tour.

Please release a live album of The Other Half.

dear mikey,
I'm sitting here in good old germany, wondering what went wrong... Don't they know you can't be replaced by anybody? Since I grew up with you guys (in a way), I respect and appreciate all of the van halen members. I love Eddie's work, but now he's definetly on the wrong track! Can't wait to see the VH kindergarden ...just joking! merry x-mas to you and yours!!!

Hello Mr. Anthony,
Sorry, just being respectful. I understand bands can be like some mariages and just go bad. I just read that Wolfgang VH is replaceing you in the band. What??? No disrespect intended. I just want my old VH back. Once again I understand hard feelings and all. I just wish you (orginal 4 members of VH) could put aside all of what has blown all of you appart. I prefere the original VH. However, I love Sammy's music with and without VH. Always have. Enjoyed some of the Gary songs too.
Just a disapointed but still loyal fan. See you on the Hall of Fame show.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Man it is good to see that two members from VH are still making music. Mike and Sammy next time you go on tour please try and make a stop in the Dever area. We love you here. Also Sammy I know you are a mountain biker he have the greatest hills in the USA.

Take care and hope to see you soon
