    How many variations & configurations can you do, of the old Montrose/VH hits?
    Yeah,he does.I think part of it is he's just doing what he can to keep Vic and Mike working.Every year he has them doing something.And I'm sure he's having fun jammin' with different musicians.

    If Mike has been, or is involved in the latest Van Halen project, I seriously don't expect that it would still come with the condition that he can't work with other artists.

    I think that condition was blown sky high by Wolfgang's continued participation in Tremonti.

    In fact, as far as I can tell, Sammy is still planning future recording projects without Mike, yet they clearly haven't fallen out.

    This indicates that potentially long term, Mike is committed elsewhere, yet his schedule is free for the 'Sammy and Friends' dates.

    If anything this set of circumstances does indicate a strong probability that Michael Anthony is involved in the latest Van Halen project.

    Just where Mike has been during the first half of this year is a growing mystery.

    Next, it will be "Mike McCready is the new guitarist in Van Halen!!!"

    It must be fun in your delusional fantasy world.

    Delusional fantasy world?!? Don't know what you're talking about.



    Only a few days ago, Wolfgang reacted to a suggestion on twitter that Van Halen needed a new guitarist.

    Wolfgang responded at the time, but since then it appears that he deleted the re-tweet and his reply.

    Maybe we should be communicating with the band, via twitter?

    And that way, maybe we can put this 'is Mike in Van Halen or not?' to bed once and for all.

    It's kind of sad in a way, "Keep Michael working."

    I know it's all for fun, but i do feel like Mike's heart is bleeding on the inside.
    It's like being in Led Zeppelin, then playing in a Zeppelin cover band.

    One thing i can say about Mike, is that he LOVED Van Halen.
    He LOVED playing bass for VH.
    There was a sincere sense of pure joy, when you saw him onstage with VH.

    I can't imagine playing, "Your love is driving me crazy," at the Hampton Beach casino, is
    as exhilirating.

    Then again, Mike has seen & done it all.
    He's achieved it all with VH, so maybe he's enjoying just coasting in his later years.

    Is he writing new music for his debut solo album?
