    Default Time for Mike to step up for a music project!!!

    Mike may aswell show some "creativity" now music wise and prove he can do it alone without the VH brothers. He cant just tag along with Sammy forever, having guest slots.
    Is "Chicken feet" or whatever, for real or not.
    Its time we heard Mikey on an album apart from VH.
    Do you remember the "Right now" video where it said "Right now, Mike is thinking about a solo project".
    That was 16 years ago (Wolfies age).
    C'mon Mikey, you've got 2 arms, 8 fingers and 2 thumbs, a bloody good bass player and a great voice, and theres no control freak telling you your bassplaying today is not wanted or thats wrong.
    Even a slot on the next Sammy album would be good......atleast its a start.
    I've always loved the thought of Michael Anthony joining Bruce Kulick, for a CD.

    Hey,
    I would back him up on lead and rhythm guitars, 3 octave background vocals, or keyboards. Heck I would even be his tech and carry his equipment.

    Though I would support him in any project he wanted to front he's more of an anchor than a frontman. The reliable, steady backbone for Sammy or whoever else he plays with. I think he has a lot of fun with Sammy and I am sure Sammy loves having him around, nothing wrong with that IMO.

    I'm sure a guy like Mike could find some bandmates that like to play as much as him.

    I would love to hear it

    I'd like to think a Chickenfoot project is, well, afoot, but it doesn't seem to be on the near horizon.

    Maybe he should hook up with Dave Mustaine, Chris DeGarmo and Carmine Appice and create some sort of heavy rock juggernaut supergroup. Save rock and roll and whatnot.

    I could get behind a Mike album. Hanging out with Sam isn't a bad thing, but I agree that he should try and spread his wings some.

    Sounds like he's keeping busy, here's some info from his blog http://madanthonyblog.blogspot.com/

    August 4th

    What's going on
    Hey everyone!! I hope all of you are having a bashing summer!! The fall is coming, and as most of you know, Sammy and I will be hitting the road in October. I'm looking forward to getting out there and partying it up with everybody! I've put a little thing together with Sammy's guitarist Vic, and J.D. on drums. We call it "The Mad Anthony Express", and we'll be opening up the show with some EARLY VH stuff. I'm doing the lead singing, and we've been having a blast with this!!
    I'm also having a contest on my web site, with people sending in their HOTTEST recipe's using my hot sauce, hot lava mustard and barbeque sauces. I'm choosing a weekly winner, and after Labor Day weekend I'll be picking a grand prize winner and some runner-ups who will get some cool MA stuff!! I am personally trying out the recipes I like and WHOA!!, I'm running out of Asbestos underwear!!! I'll be checking in with all of you soon with more info on the tour. I'll also be posting up the dates for all of you on my website. I can't wait to see all of you in the fall!!, Michael

    I've wanted Mikey to branch out from Sammy since 2002. He should do it and create something original. I know he has it in him.

    Mike has played some tracks on a Neil Zaza record. He's not totally brown nosing Sammy. He should do a record and even sing on it!

    I posted this in another thread, but maybe Mike should record an EP with Mad Anthony's Express and sell it on his website.

    It wouldn't sell bucketloads, but I'm sure he has many fans who would be keen to hear it. I'd buy a copy.

    Perhaps 5 tracks, 2 originals, 3 covers.

    I'm sure Mike could collaborate with someone on a couple of original tracks, then perhaps cover a ZZ Top or Led Zeppelin track, something he already performs live with this group.
    “And what we have at our fingertips is arguably one of the greatest high tenor voices ever – that was in Michael Anthony. In our tiny little corner of the universe, that voice is as identifiable as the high voice in Earth, Wind & Fire, as identifiable as the high voice in the Beach Boys. Van Halen is an indelicate house blend of both – that’s intentionally. So I would always look forward to that reunion.” - David Lee Roth

    The track he recorded with Neil Zaza is good, "Heavyocity" it's called. Mike's bass sounds great.

    It would be great to see him do something. I think it would be fun to see him in Ringo's all star band. That would be neat.

    mike and sammy are friends with everyone in the business except eddie van halen. he'd have no trouble getting a crew together in addition to " mad anthony express".
    it would be a bit too obscure for a commercial release but selling it at venues and the website would be great, he doesn't need to make any money, just needs to pay for production. he could probably just use sammy's label.

    it would be cool if he went into some sessions after christmas , and had an EP to release ( or at least announce ) when he joins sam next summer- he'd beat van halen to the punch!!!
