    Periodically on this site, elsewhere on the web, and out in the real world talk of Michael Anthony not actually recording the bass parts for Van Halen lps surfaces. I'm not inclined to believe this, but I am wondering what's fueling this kind of talk. My only guess is that after 1984 bass took a definite backseat on VH records. Although the bass seemed to gain in importance once again with FUCK and following albums, Anthony's bass playing never again seemed as integral to the songs as it had 1984 and earlier. And why is that? That's probably a better topic for the Speculation folder, but I still wanna know why certain folks insist Eddie plays the bass on VH records starting with "insert VH record here" all that way through to VH3?

    MylkCurdlr I am going to send this to the VH Songs/Albums/Video forum, it has a better chance of being discussed there than here in the rumor mill. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Well if Mike didn't write and record the bass parts, that would remove him from any right of payment from the publishing end...where you can really make the cash.

    I hope they at least give him some cash from Merchandising income. For fucks sakes he's been there the whole time. Makes me think even worse of Eddie and Al if they only pay him a salary as a hired gun, I'm sure a well paid hired gun.

    BUT, what would you think if the guys in the band are making millions more a year, when typically your doin the same thing you were doin when you were getting paid 25% share. That guy must have ulcers out the ass. No wonder the guy drinks!

    I didn't say it was the truth. In fact, I doubt there's any truth to it at all. All I wanna know, is where does this persistent rumor come from, and why is it continually repeated as an accepted fact?

    And as for Mike and money, I read somewhere(years ago, so I can no longer cite the source. It may well be bullshit) that Mike is the richest of all the members of Van Halen, having invested his money wisely.
