    We all have heard Mikey's voice throughout the years. Whether he was backing Dave, Sammy, or Gary, they were there. So why not forget about Sam and Dave and let Mikey handle lead vocals. Personally I would like to hear Mikey front the band and this would lead to new VH music

    I remember reading an interview with Mike where he commented that when he joined the band he saw everybody already in it sang backup and was glad he finally didn't have to do that. Well, history tells us what came of it.

    Mike has the voice to handle the job, but maybe he doesn't want to do it. Who knows, maybe he can sing and play anything you put in front of him, but he can't actually come up with lyrics if his life depended on it.

    I remember reading somewhere that Mike and the brothers had discussed going out as a power trio.

    I've suggested this in the past too, but the more I think about it, I think the post asking who would handle the back-ups is right. One of the things, IMO, that made VH the greatest fucking band ever, with both singers (sorry, I don't consider the Gary fiasco anything more than a bad dream)is the accompanying vocals on past tunes; Summer Nights, Women in Love, Dance the Night Away, Feelin', etc. We each have our favorites. I will tell you this man, if the fuckers can't get it together w/ Sam/Dave, I'll take Mike [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    But Mike is first and foremaost a bass player, not a front man, and it's a helluva lot easier to say for someone to just do it than to actually do it. Kind of like knowing when you are in your element and when you are out of it... [img]graemlins/bounce.gif[/img]

    Actually, I read an interview with Mike, after they broke with Gary, so it's from the last few years, where he said that he'd like to sing lead on one song on the next album, and a couple live.

    i've always liked the idea of the next album having mikey on a third of the vocals, have eddie do one or two, bring in a few guests vocalists (hell, even gary or sammy for just a one-off track, or some of the DLR tracks from 2000) and round it out with some instrumentals/ eddie's intros.

    you could still have some songs with the trademark background vocals, and some without. not EVERY song on EVERY album has backups, as much as mikey's vocals are part of the band.

    the reason nothing has been put out is that they don't want to put anything out. eddie always said he'd get out when he wanted to. maybe he meant it.
