    Yes, he could and I wish he would. Go Mikey. You stick up for those vocal chops and tell it like it is, brother.

    Clearly Mike wants to talk about VH in every interview he does. He must be jealous or obsessed and wants back in the band.

    Or wait, is that just Sammy?

    Default C'mon Mike!

    Crap? I would like to have heard him say that instead of reading it. Might give a better sense how he meant that. Mike needs to stay classy. I love his contributions to the sound of VH but..... Just stay classy man.

    You can listen to Mike's interview on VHND here:

    “I Can Sing It All!” — Michael Anthony Says He Can Sing Lead Vocals on Any Van Halen Song

    The youtube video is queued up to that specific quote. It's very lighthearted. No biggie.

    Geez guys, relax. It was a fun, light hearted interview.

    He can't sing lead. Who the hell is he kiddin'? I mean, technically he could, but it wouldn't be that good.
    His voice is way to high to sing Dave songs and not strong enough to sing Sam songs. There's a reason why he's background.

    Thanks for that Jeff. I like Mikey and want it to stay that way.

    And bklynboy68, that's why I said I wanted to hear it. Not all that easy to tell if something is lighthearted in print when there wasn't that much print to read.

    Yeah, he's an outstanding background singer when Ed is there to create great harmony. He's got a very specific range I think he's great at. But would be a poor lead singer in my opinion. See SGMAD, ok for a one off, but every song sung like that would not be good. There are a bunch of qualities he does not have that Sam and Dave do have like range, inflection, putting emotion into the words.

    Spot on! Exactly what I was thinking. It's okay for a song or two, but not an entire show.
    It was cool Mike sang SGMAD, in 2004, but it woulda been better if Sam did it and Mike stayed on background.

    Might depend on the standard being used.

    You're using the "Dave standard". ...the sound of the voice matters more than the range. The Dave standard is used to support the idea that Sammy would not be able to pull off Dave songs even though he could hit the notes.

    If you use the "Sammy standard" it would mean Mike would be the best singer out of all of them since he can sing higher than any of them. The Sammy standard is used to claim Sammy is a better singer than Dave simply because he can sing higher.
