    Default Did Mike do some vocals on Sammy's Serious JuJu? I have to know already

    backstory-back when 10/13 was released and they were playing serious juju on the radio alot (it got a decent amount of airplay in the D) I remember thinking man on the ride out of the song (The part that goes "Somebody save the world") it sure does sound like Mike but it can't be cause He's still in VH and they would never let him do that.

    FF a little bit and Mike's doing shows with Sam.

    FF a bit more to yesterday when I'm at the gym and on my IPOD comes serious Juju....now I don't usually like any dave/vh/sammy/cf on my IPOD cause it distracts me from my workout with random stupid thoughts.

    Anyway again I found myself saying "damn that sounds like Mike".

    I'm convinced it's him.

    Am I nuts or does it sound a whole hell of alot like it could be mike singing that part?

    Always loved that song, the slow start and then BAM!

    Vic lays down a blazing groove on it. And Sam sounds incredible on it.

    But I don't think it sounds like Mike in the "Somebody Save the World" part.

    Now, I know people will kill me for this, but I don't think there is a single song Chickenfoot has done that is as good as Serious Ju Ju and a bunch of songs from Marching to Mars and Ten 13.

    I am sure I am in the minority, but that is why I find myself a little disappointed in the Foot. Still good, but I just thought they would be great, and please everyone, I am not meaning this as a bash, just an observation.

    This question has come up before. I did a quick search and came up with over 11 pages of possible answers.

    If I recall correctly, the official answer is no. Mike was still officially in VH when it was recorded.

    Personally, I'd bet it is.

    Never was too much of a fan, of Sam's solo work, and have just heard this song for the very first time.

    That was bad ass. Never heard Sam have such a "hard" sound before.

    Btw, it DOES sound like MA.

    It threw me a bit back in 2000 when it came out, cause I thought the same thing. I still think its Mona, but you never know, maybe Mike did help out, and it was one of the many things that pissed off Eddie, but it was never mentioned.

    First time I heard it I just assumed it was Mona, shortly before thinking to myself "that's why she got hired."

    honestly the more I listen to it the more I think it's mike. It's such a cool part of the song as well. Like they're just begging somebody to do it...to save the world.

    I LOVE MTM and ten13, lots of love for those disks on my IPOD.

    If you compare Sammy's work pre-VH (with the exception of Montrose) to post-VH, he and his music have evolved well. Post is definately better than pre.

    Just listened to it with headphones. Two reactions:

    1. Man, what a bad-ass tune
    2. If it's Mona, she's doing an incredible Mad Anthony impression

    It was Bootsy Collins. I thought everyone knew that.

    I just relistened to it with my headphones on and jammed down my ear canal (they're those little IPOD buds) and at one time it does kinda sound like mona might be singing it but I can't be sure.

    my guess is also Mona - Jesse Harms also does/did some higher background vocals as well, didn't he?

    Anyway, killer tune. One of my alltime favorites from Sam's solo career.
