    Only Mike and the brothers know the true answer...

    IMO Michael Anthony has been a whole hell of a lot more Van Halen the last 4 years than Edward and Alex have been... [img]graemlins/scared.gif[/img]

    Michael Anthony : the only member of Van Halen who interacts these days.

    "Biff Malibu" actually uses his website [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    I play bass and am a huge MA fan--very underrated as a bassist and as a component of the VH sound IMO.

    There's a couple of reasons people talk as though he's not part of the band etc. According to Sam's book (yeah I know it was never published), ever since Ray Daniels entered the picture, Mike's been a salaried member. In Crazy From the Heat, DLR says that EVH was going to replace MA. Various rumors have circulated dating back to the Fair Warning tour about Mike being replaced by Jeff Berlin or Billy Sheehan. EVH has played with both of them on some projects or NAMM show type things. In addition, anytime they've done the collective group interview, I've always gotten the sense that they imposed some kind of gag order on MA. IMO the worst thing was when Sam left the band because then EVH became the band's main spokesperson and it was a little bit awkward at times for me to listen to. DLR and Sam were fun when they were the spokesmen.

    Mike rocks big time!--they'd be crazy to cut him loose.
    "With me in the band, it's one of those miraculous 97-97 deals. It's 97 percent you and 97 percent moi. Is it Mick or Keith? I don't know" -DLR

    "We eventually started playing clubs, and we also did weddings. We played everything from the Ohio Players to K.C. & the Sunshine Band. You would love the sight of Van Halen doing 'Get Down Tonight'! But by the third set when everybody was good and tanked up--boy, we'd be blazin'!" -Michael Anthony
