    can't help but wonder about this one.
    i'm not saying he's gonna be the lead singer full-time, but i don't think it's impossible that there are some demos lying around 5150 with mike singing lead.

    i mean, just what the hell have they been DOING since last july?

    i don't think anyone with a brain expected the world from Eddie since his hip replacement and cancer scare - we don't even know the extent of his condition.
    actually, i'm wrong. everyone expected the world and then some.

    i don't know. the bottom line is this: having the ability to get instant information has not been the best thing for us the past 2 years. we faced each day with immense hope of new VH music or at least the news of it's progress.

    i wonder how we'd all feel if this was 20 years ago and the only way you could find out squat about your favorite band was from a magazine or fanclub newsletter... maybe we wouldn't be hanging on every moment.

    apparently, that's the way VH still thinks the majority of the world stil is, cause they haven't lifted a finger to let their fans - the people who care about VH - know what the story is.

    I say the majority of us should just take a break from this whole soap opera and pop in here every once in a while. It would help a lot. I guarentee it. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I could see Mikey winking and smiling when he gets "the" question if he's the actual lead singer. Maybe that's why he's trimmed down, to fit into some bright pink spandex! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Yeah, I could totally see Mikey providing guide vocals on demo work that the band has done in the past. One problem though would be if Eddie (and the band) got caught up tailoring what they were writing to Mikey's voice, and then have to alter things when the real singer shows up.

    I can just see Dave listening to their demos and saying, "why are all these songs about hot peppers and Yamaha bass guitars?" [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    well that's two problems then isn't it [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] Why demo songs with Mike on vocals if they'll have to change things around to fit the singer's voice and lyrical style? It probably makes perfect sense in VH world [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    My money is on some time off and some time working with their new lead singer [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    Seriously though, I wouldn't mind hearing something from Mike on the next album (whenever TNA comes out). If he's done any vocals on anything, hopefully something carries over.
