    it always bums me out when I think of this whole deal with Mike being booted from the band. So he goes and plays with Hagar, big deal. So they call themselves The Other Half, big deal. So he's making 1/4 of $$ but didn't actually write, big deal. I always think of this photo from VH3 and wonder what happened to the bondů.

    Things become about sides, Mike sides with Sammy, Ed grew very bitter and can hold a grudge for decades. A certain part of him probably felt betrayed. Drug abusers an addicts often don't find faults on their own actions and blame others. He had an opening to blame Mike and did.
    Perhaps someday he'll make amends. I'm sure deep down he appreciates what Moke did for the band, but right now his son is playing bass and that makes Ed happy
    I doubt Ed is saying things would be much better for VH if Wolf was there all along, but this man historically has had a hard time admitting his own faults

    Sorry if this kick ass video has already been posted here by someone else, but here's Mike ripping it up with John 5 on 'Somebody Get Me a Doctor' - at the Whisky a Go Go, by the look of it:



    I'd take more of this anytime ...

    I've heard Mike sing lead on SGMAD plenty of times but I think he did a really nice job on this performance.

    I think Michael Anthony is almost unique in regards to he is a great singer/bass player been in one of the biggest bands on the planet yet seems like a really nice down to earth bloke you might have a pint with.

    I still remember VH's induction into the RRHOF (for which neither Ed, nor Al, nor Dave showed).

    Mike's last word's in their acceptance (paraphrased): "This is for you too, Gary. You're a part of this too."

    Michael Anthony, from all accounts, is a good, decent man. He is a well renowned rock n' roll bassist and one helluva harmonizer. You have the love and support of your fans, brother. Every comment I have read on the this board tells me that we know the truth: you are awesome!

    I agree. I think Ed respected Mike's contributions to the VH sound. Fans often over look that Mike could have played with anyone else outside of Hagar and still be in the band. I think deep down inside Mike knew how Ed and Al would react to him playing with Hagar. I honestly believe Mike thought VH would be no more considering the condition Ed was in at the time. I think Mike was almost shocked that Ed came back in fine form. Maybe Mike wanted out of the VH drama and knew joining Sammy would be his one way ticket out??

    Default Respect for Mike

    No chance in hell Mike is still in VH at this point. Wolf was in as soon as he was old enough. Mike playing with Sam just gave Ed a perfect excuse to dump him.
