    Default Minor MA News

    On my way home from work, I had my SIRIUS radio going. One station does their "Best of Both Worlds" set with a few Dave songs and a few Sammy songs. At the end of it, the DJ began talking about Michael Anthony. He read the statement from MA about how he thought the VH tour could have gone all over the world and about his disappointment with Eddie's drinking (old news from a post a while back). But the DJ went further by saying that Anthony was the wealthiest member of VH. He took most of the money he made from the band and invested it in Disney and did very well for himself. Just thought that was an interesting bit of info, so do with it what you will.

    I missed that today, but any news right now, no matter how slight, is good to hear.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    Q: who was the biggest douche that you have worked with?

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Now the new David-Lee-Roth-Van Halen album, “Tokyo Dome In Concert,” is available for purchase, and it’s super, super, super, super, super, super, crazy bad. - Doug Elfman

    Also can't hurt that Michael has never had to give up half his earnings to an ex.

    I believe the part about Mike being the richest guy in the band was from one of the MTV specials. Sammy and the guys were saying that on the road Mike never orders room service, cause its much too expensive, and that he has an extensive towel and soap collection from all the hotels.
    Mike joked, "yeah, they call me Mr. Hilton".
    I don't doubt he is loaded, and staying married certainly helps, but I think it was said in fun and kind of an inside joke with the band.

    I'm not sure why this would be so hard to believe. He gets songwriting royalties as often as Eddie and Alex, and he's toured more often than either of them. He also has his own signature guitar, and his own hot sauce line. Take into account he has invested wisely, and doesn't spend "x" amount of dollars a week on smokes and alcohol as some people do, it wouldn't be too hard to believe he has made more money than Eddie or Alex.

    As far as Sammy goes, well, who knows?

    There have been allegations that Mike hasn't been a full partner of the band for many years. Of course, these allegations come from Sammy's unpublished autobiography, but it is telling that Mike was not credited as a co-writer on any of the new VH songs on The Best Of Both Worlds.

    Mike is a class act and for a while, the only VH member offering any kind of encouragement to the fans during the band's protracted hiatus. If Mikey is doing well, then he deserves it.

    Yeah, a lot of people bash Mikey, but it seems to me he is one of the more intelligent, well adjusted and happy members of the group. He's just been doing his time in the background, so to speak, and reaping the benefits. Good for him!

    I could never understand people bashing Mike, what for especially. He is a solid bass player and as important part of VH as anybody else.

    Not to mention his daughters
