    as long as there's a new album and the songs sound good i don't care if they have a trained monkey singing for them - and before people lynch me MA is a lot better at singing than a monkey [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    I'd probably have a coronary if Eddie and Alex announced anything.

    Mike could sing lead on a couple of songs in concert and that would be cool. But I don't think Mike's got a lead singer's voice. He's best suited to sing back up. His vocals make up a chunk of the VH "sound." Great harmonies.

    He'd have to do more than just sing, he'd have to write lyrics, too. I'd bet even Mike would say he's not lead singer material.

    I would suspect that such an announcement was a (sick) April Fools Day joke!

    I wouldn't mind Mike on lead vocals for a song or two but that who does that leave on background vocals? Eddie and Al. Pahlease....

    I would give it more of a chance than a 3rd or 4th singer.... I would most like to see them with #1) David Lee Roth #2) Sammy Hagar. No offence Mike! After all Michael IS the backing voice if VH, and King of the Bottom end! Without anyone of them, 1-1984 would have never been what it was! Just my $.02

    To modify a commonly thrown-around phrase around the 'net:

    "Van Halen is NOTHING without Michael Anthony's backing vocals!!!"

    I'd say that sums up my thoughts pretty well...
