    In the interim between the Planet Us project and the Van Halen hiatus, I'd love to see Michael Anthony put together a touring band and do some solo shows. With the huge reaction to Mike's appearances on the Sam & Dave tour, I bet a mini-tour of smaller concert halls would be amazing.

    I disagree. When you are at a Van Halen show and need to grab a beer, you go during the bass solo or drum solo. Mikey is GREATNESS - no doubt. However, there is no way he would get more than 500 people at a club to see him. He has no songs and no track record as a solo artist. He doesn't even have the "curiosity factor".

    Now, if Van Halen went out as a power trio a la Rush with Mikey fronting the band, you might have something.

    I think the diehard VH fans would see him but it would be in a very small venue.

    Small venues are what I had in mind. Mike's obviously doing the Sam & Dave shows for enjoyment and for the fans. A series of Mike Anthony club shows for the die-hards would be a great fix for us jonesing for Van Halen activity. They could do material from both Van Halen eras as well as a nice selection of party covers. Hell, I'd go.
