    Mikey is the coolest guy in this group in my opinion, hands down. Mike reminds me alot of myself, and he is the reason I grew to love VH so much. I just feel like I relate to him the most. Of everyone in VH, he is the one who has appeared to change the least. (personality-wise)
    I know that this whole wait has to be killing him. He has lots of other things that seem to keep him busy but you know he's dying to get things going. He just seems to have too much energy to sit around and do nothing.
    Sometimes I wonder if Mike is the only one left in the VH camp that actually has any common sense.

    Yeah - I agree. Mike has probably hated this whole silence crap just as much as us - not to mention his engines are probably raring to go, like you said, cackmouse.

    You may be right, friend. Mr. Anthony must also hate VH fans seeing him as the guy who promised new music (true or not whether he actually made the promises) and then not delivering. He's probably thinking, "I'm getting older. Aren't I supposed to be in a band that plays live and records?"

    The silence baffles me, and I wonder if the cancer thing really means anything.

    Yeah the whole thing about Mike promising a new album "in the fall" and now "Spring 2002" is really the wild card. My gut tells me Mike is a straight shooter and definately wouldn't KNOWINGLY mislead a fan.
    I say KNOWINGLY because I can imagine the VH brothers saying one thing and doing another, and Mike getting caught in the middle. Who knows how many times the plans in 5150 have been changed without Mike knowing. He's probably as confused as the rest of us. I would feel bad for him if he wasn't SO DAMN RICH!!!! ha ha

    Plus, I think the cancer thing threw a monkey wrench into the works for awhile too.

    Yeah, I have said all along that Mikey has got to be very frustrated by the VH bros.

    I look for Mike to do something on his own at some point. Maybe some live jams , like what he did at the raceway a month or so ago. Maybe even joing Sammy (if the bros let him) down in Cabo for some fun.

    Go Mike !! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Who knows better than Mike, how frustrating the Brothers are? They treat him like a total piece of shit.

    I'll say it again - the "cancer thing" was nothing more than a convenient excuse to buy the band time and get the people off their backs. Sammy has said himself that Eddie's cancer is so old news that he has known about it for a long time and it is by no means life-threatening.

    Read the interview.

    IMO, I think Mike wants get some new music out there ASAP. He has this new deal with Yamaha but no place to showcase it. Maybe what he said was the truth but was told by someone (Eddie, lawyers, Roth) to quickly clam up. At this point, only a few select even know what is going on. Unfortunately, we are not the select few.

    Man, everybody knows Sammy uses "new math" to calculate album sales. Sheesh, do we have to dredge this up again? [img]tongue.gif[/img]
