    Default Time For Michael Anthony To Write A Book

    If Mikey finally got around to writing down nearly 30 years worth of the good, the bad and the ugly it would make for one helluva read. Think about it, the guy really has seen it all, way more than Dave OR Sammy....

    Whaddya think?
    yeah.......i'm still here.

    I think that idea's been kicked around this place for a while now.

    I don't think it'll ever happen. Mike is the one guy in the band most fans don't have any beef with.....because for the most part, he keeps his pie hole shut and plays the bass, no matter who is singing.

    I wish the other folks could follow his lead.

    I am sure when VH is closed for good ( EVH's death or worse ) he will then, he has allways been the coolest part of that band...no need for trash talking, he just drives his gt40 all the way to the bank...
    Sam, Dave,Gary... who cares. its all about what makes you feel good.

    I think it will eventually happen just to set some of the record straight. I mean, who would have thought Priscilla would have wrote a book on Elvis but she did for that exact reason. Or maybe even Valerie will write an autobiography but that might not have a full perspective that Mikey's would.

    Now that would be a book! The only man to have seen the good, bad and the ugly and for the most part has maintained neutrality regarding all things VH (at least until recently).

    Mikey is the only band member that would report the history of VH and call it right down the middle.

    It would be great to get some inside "scoop" from Mikey. I just dont see Mikey doing this though.

    If he told the truth about the "goings on" behind the scenes, he would be the Jose Canseco of VH, dont you think ?

    That is only if it came with free samples!

    I wonder how it compares to Joe Perry's Bone Yard Brew (which is VERY good). I am dying to get my chops on some of Mikey's Hot Sauce

    There was a time I thought this would NEVER happen, but after his comments re. Ed's drinking recently, I wouldn't be surprised. Would I buy it... too right I would!!

    It would be an interesting read. However, in all fairness, I bet he'd have some "interesting" comments about Sammy and not just Ed. I don't know why I feel this way, but I suspect Michael shared the same frustration that Ed and Al experienced regarding Sam's lack of effort in the studio for the last couple of Sam albums. Just my opinion, folks.
