    Michael Anthony is one of, in my opinion, the most underrated bassists, ever. Yeah, I am a biased opinionated VH fan, but, seriously, his bass skills perfectly compliment the bands individual styles, with Eddies guitar playing leading the way.

    Mike is badass, no doubt.

    I am guessing Mike is rather frustrated by his bandmates these days.

    Mike not only can play killer bass, but is awesome on the backing vocals for VH !!

    Mike's a great player, but I've noticed he plays most VH songs the same way. Not completely, but still he seems to play the same notes on the songs. Just speculating [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    There are occasional times in the early days where he's simply play and open E or A, but he's gotten a lot better. Hope to hear more from him on the next album, since he never really made an impression on VH3.

    No offense to Michael Anthony but I think the coolest thing about him was the Jack Daniel's Bass or the Tabasco Bass. Nothing musically that he ever played was too impressive to me.

    It takes a great player to play between Ed and Al. I think he's underated. He ought to hook up with his buddy Hagar since it's obvious VH can't get off their asses to do anything at all.

    Yeah, or he could start his own band.

    Yeah, like in the Right Now video ... "Right now, Michael Anthony is thinking about a solo project ..." [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] What was that all about anyway?
    "One of the reasons I left Sabbath was because Van Halen was blowing us off the stage every night. It was embarrassing." -Ozzy Osbourne

    "When I first heard "Runnin' With The Devil" on the radio, I was stunned and found myself dizzy, walking through my high school hallways thinking, "What was THAT?!"
    Eddie Van Halen was so innovative and kicked so much ass, and David Lee Roth was for a time indisputably the Greatest Man in America.
    If aliens came down and challenged us to a Battle of the Bands to decide the fate of Planet Earth, I would feel very confident putting early Van Halen forward as our champion." -Tom Morello

    "A lot of bands mature, which means they get square; they start delivering messages. Hey, you got a message, use Western Union." -DLR
