I loved White Lion with a passion back in the day; Vito remains my fave guitarist. However I have to disagree with many who belittle Mike's contribution, as I think Mike was the major factor in WLs songwriting.
I like pretty much all of Mike's solo stuff which contain some fantastic songs, some even better than the WL material (for instance The Good, the Sad and the ugly).
I'm pleased he's still managing to find a way to make a living in the industry - anyone who goes to his solo shows has to acknowledge the guys talent and breadth of material.
I suspect his more stripped back approach of recent years is majorly influenced by keeping costs down.

Whilst I catch most of Mike's solo tours in the UK, I have zero in interest in seeing WL without Vito.
