And the beat goes on.....

It's just terrible all these bands, there always seems to be either one member on the outs , or worse, sadly dead from an overdose of some kind. We finally have a Halen with Roth reunion and now Eddie hates Michael for siding with Sammy. Wolfie was good on tuesday, but he's no Michael. A friend said he caught them not singing on the mic, but he heard backup vocals, which are presumably samples, so they are definitely missing Michael. I kind of thought the backups sounded too good to be true, and I guess I'm right.

The secret sauce...

Hey John,

I can remember listening to VH albums years ago and always thinking that it was Eddie doing all those high backing vocals. I found out otherwise the first time I saw "Live Without A Net" . My jaw hit the floor....Mike was dead on with his vocal parts and I would learn that a lot of the high screaming parts on the early albums were Mike and not Dave...

Mike was far more important than just being the bass player. His voice was a MAJOR part of the VH sound and it was missing from "Van Halen 3"...I recently read that he only played on three cuts of that CD..something to that effect. I could never understand why Eddie has such a problem with Mike....reading in that Burn interview that Mike had to cut a deal in order to play with the band on the last tour with Sammy.....he took a huge cut in pay but if that was going to be the last VH tour there was no way he was going to miss it.

Judging from your comments I think Mike is getting the last laugh!

John Fogerty and his backing band, Creedence. They were all his songs and parts, but Stu and Doug were good players. It's a shame and it will never happen. I really love John's past three albums and play them constantly.

great topic. i could list so many off the radar bands but some of the big ones:

-Bad Company w/Paul R.
-Journey w Steve Perry (I see I am not alone looking back at other posts)
-Van Halen with Sammy - sorry, I just feel he writes better songs

But probably one that rates VERY high................

Cry of Love

If you've never heard their 2 cds from the early 90s you are missing out in a big way

I've gotta vote for BOC. I think Hughes Thrall (well either with anybody) would be pretty cool! But then there are a lot of tours we don't get in Canada as it is!
