    Inner tray picture, VHIII...

    Regarding the "band" picture beneath the tray (that actually holds the cd in place within the jewel case)...who is the guy between Alex Van Halen and Gary Cherone?

    I've looked at this photo on and off over the years, and I'm not exactly sure that the person is Mike Anthony.

    Could this be Mike Post?

    I'm serious...it never has looked like M.A. to my eyes.

    You tell me.

    I don't think it's Mike either. Post is a good guess, as giving a producer visuals on an LP sleeve is right up III's alley.

    Perhaps it's that infamous studio musician that replaces Mikey on the albums he doesn't play on.

    Dang! Never noticed that before. I'm gonna go with Mikey, only because it looks to be a "band member" picture. Kind of a slap in the face if it's not.

    After hearing the record, maybe Mikey wanted to alter his appearance to protect his reputation?

    I have to go with Mikey on this one. Pic seems a tad out of focus, yet look at the smile, height and build.

    By the way, Craig.... I thought VH3 was off limits in your household. I guess you're looking for a lost bud or roach. Light 'em up!

    Pretty weird indeed, almost looks like Bill Ward (!) but I've always assumed it was Mikey too.

    Yeah, they kinda' "hosed" Mikey in that photo. Doesnt look like him at all.

    Word has it he wasnt around much for that cd recording.

    holy crap, that is fucked up. Well, I don't think it's Mike Post, here is what Post looks like:



    But it does't look like Mad Anthony either....

    That's too bad since there are actually some very cool bass lines on VHIII. Seriously, listen closely and you'll hear what I'm saying. I've no doubt it's Ed playing them since they don't particularly sound like Mike's style.
