    Default Mike: take advantage of the silence!

    I think we're at a unique time where Ed, Sam and Dave are all silent (I'm not even mentionning Al who's been silent since the XXth century expired).

    Mike should definitely take advantage of this to release some music. Fans are pretty much starved for anything new and would definitely welcome a Mike solo album, even if he only plays the open E string the whole time! This is the perfect moment, after the huge let down of early 07. The time is right and it might not last in 08.

    Mike we want a solo record!!!

    If Mike could write a song he would have done so by now. Mike is a bassist and background vocalist for bands. Nothing more and nothing less.

    And you know this Plexi? Wow I didn't know you and Mike were so close.

    Every half-assed musician can write a song, I'm sure Mike has written some tunes on his own. Just because you haven't heard them, and he hasn't put out a solo record surely doesn't mean he can't and hasn't. Van Halen is about EVH's licks, not Mike's.

    You guys love to rip Mike because of his relationship with Sam...it's so fucking sad.

    Ahhh...that was a bit harsh...pretty sure Mikey is more than capable of putting together a smokin set of tunes for a disc...where do you get this crap from? Minimize the guy who's made a huge contribution to the band over the years...get real buddy.
    ...and in the end, on dreams we will depend...

    Even the biggest Michael Anthony fan can't seriously see a market for a solo album from him. And even if you could fathom it, Van Halen being silent doesn't make the timing better.

    It would sell better with VH being in the public eye and functioning, obviously with Mikey in the band. Of course 'sell better' is relative, because it's the difference between it selling 108 copies and only selling 47 copies.

    It's true that a solo album from Mike would probably only run the radar on diehard Halen fans.

    That said, another Planet Us collaboration or something of its type would be sweet, and potentially marketable. That Billy Gibbons/Jeff Beck/Mike Anthony gig was promising to say the least, even though it was just a jam. Something more formalized in-studio might be interesting.

    Why does there have to be a market? Mikey(sorry Max )Should put out an album simply cause he wants to and has the capital to.

    Don Johnson did. Based on his fame at the time and people telling him ,"Don, i'm telling ya, it well sell gangbusters."

    Heck, do it because you only live once and you just felt like it. I'd buy it cause it's Mikey. And Mikey's a cool cat.

    Mikey has no business putting out solo music.

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Now the new David-Lee-Roth-Van Halen album, “Tokyo Dome In Concert,” is available for purchase, and it’s super, super, super, super, super, super, crazy bad. - Doug Elfman

    That should probably read "if" he wants to, not "cause" he wants to. Because if he wanted to, he'd have done it already, no?

    Heck, do it because you only live once and you just felt like it.
    He obviously hasn't felt like it in the last 53 years, can't imagine why he would now. And remember, EVERY advertisement or mention of this would contain two key words, Van Halen. Anybody wanna bet how Eddie would react to the Van Halen name being used to sell a Michael Anthony solo album?

    I'd buy it cause it's Mikey

    Man, you and DIF with you're ninja like post's.

    Yea, i guess that would be "if" he wants to. Again, maybe it's something he never thought about in the past . Not saying he is thinking about it now.
    But maybe these jams he has been participating in has stirred a want to in him. And maybe not. I guess my point was there doesnt necessarily have to be market for it. Certain groups of people will buy it . And if it was with say, Beck, Gibbons, Smith, that would probably draw the interest of fans of those individuals too.

    And if said album ever say the light of day, i think Patrick Swayze would give it a listen.

    Mikey!!
