    I just listened to Mike's rendition of "Somebody Get Me a Doctor" and he kicked ass. For a guy his age who has lived the wild life that he has, he's got some killer chops as a lead singer. (not to mention as a background vocalist) It's too bad his great vocals have been put to waste over the years in strictly the background. I would buy a solo effort of his in a heart beat. At the very least, I'd love to see him get a song or two on the next album. (I do recall him commenting when Gary was still in the band that he was planning to have a track or two on the followup to VH3.) What do you guys think?

    I think a solo Mike album would be great. If not that, maybe a few tracks on the new album with DLR. And, if not that, Van Halen could make a whole new album with him on lead vocals.

    To start with, as compared to many in his industry, I don't think that Michael Anthony has really lived a rock star lifestyle. He seems to be much more grounded and centered, which is probably a major reason why his voice is still great, and he's never even been close to being a casualty of the excesses.

    The coolest thing about Mikey is that he truly doesn't seem concerned with what people think of him. Now, most of us claim to be that way, but aren't. Doing a solo album would be something to do if Mikey was insecure about his place in Van Halen, or something to prove that he's more than just "Eddie Van Halen's back-up player". Alot of people in his position might have an ego that needed to be stroked outside of Van Halen, but fortunately, Mikey doesn't seem to be one of those people.

    Then again, in the FUCK era, Mikey was "planning a solo project", so who knows.

    I would love to hear a solo project by Mike, I dont think it would sell a ton of copies but I would certainly buy it.

    I'd love to get my hands on ANY recordings from his days with the band Snake.

    But, I don't even know if any exist...Anyone know?

    Occasionally I check Napster but I have never found ANY recordings from Snake.


    Glenn, do you know if any exist? I'm sure they would be rough quality, but I'd love to hear 'em..

    I'd be willing to bet my nickel that Mikey himself has some tapes of his former band Snake. Not that that helps us out very much.

    I'm not aware of any Snake recordings in existence. I agree though, it would be cool to hear that.
