    I'm probably going to get burned by all the Rush heads but Mike kicks Geddys ass vocally. Mike is a better singer and lately I've been really payin attention to VH's basslines and Mike is a very underrated bass player. Also, if you think that's Ed playin bass on VH's albums just watch Mike play live he's damn good. Geddy plays very complex stuff. VH's music doesn't call for complex basslines. Just my two cents

    As a Bass player, Mike Anthony is a great background singer.

    Geddy Lee is a much better bass player than Michael Anthony. Vocals I'm not goona comment on because it's not a fair comparision. It's like comparing a starting QB to a backup QB.

    It's hard to say that Mikey is definitely a better vocalist being as that he sings primarily backing vocals whereas Geddy is a lead vocalist. That said, I tend to think that Mikey is a better vocalist due to the 'tinny' sound that is Geddy's signature style. Still, I don't think Mike is the bass player that Geddy is but like someone else said, VH music doesn't call for the complex bass lines in Rush's music.

    What he said, and I think Mike played bass guitar on all of the VH albums except for III. Sounds like keyboard bass on some of the 5150 and OU812 (where the bass is audible) tracks.

    "We eventually started playing clubs, and we also did weddings. We played everything from the Ohio Players to K.C. & the Sunshine Band. You would love the sight of Van Halen doing 'Get Down Tonight'! But by the third set when everybody was good and tanked up--boy, we'd be blazin'!" -Michael Anthony
