    Todays Akron Beacon Journal(a Knight Ridder newspaper wire article) is reporting Michael Anthony will indeed be joining Sammy Hagar in Cleveland. Hagar went on to mention that the brothers are "freaked out" about the whole thing.

    Here it is for thoose lazy people


    Posted on Thu, May. 23, 2002

    Non-pals pledge a really good show
    From Beacon Journal wire services

    Sammy Hagar is full of news. He's about to embark on a tour with the other famous, ex-Van Halen singer, David Lee Roth.

    Joining Hagar on stage during the tour, which opens Wednesday at Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls, will be Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony.

    ``I've heard they're extremely freaked out'' about the whole Hagar/Roth/Anthony,'' thing, Hagar said of Van Halen.

    ``Mikey says he hasn't even heard from them. But someone who works for them called Mike and said if he's caught dead out there with Sam and Dave, he's had it. They don't want him out there with us. Obviously, they're very upset about it, but Mike'll work it out. He's fine.''

    Anthony's addition adds even more drama to the Hagar/Roth tour. The tour, called ``The Heavyweight Champs of Rock 'N' Roll,' will mark the first time a single stage is occupied by the two former lead singers for Van Halen.

    So fans will theoretically get to hear Roth sing Hot for Teacher and see Hagar perform Why Can't This Be Love?

    For those who wonder how the two got together and decided to embark on a 50-60 city U.S. tour, Roth is happy to reveal he instigated it.

    ``I was walking around my back yard, trying to think of an unpredictable way to hit the road, to put out my video,'' he said. Co-headlining on a tour with his one-time adversary ``is one of those things that, once you hear about it, it's as obvious as the wheel.... But of course! No corners!''

    Roth and Hagar have bad-mouthed each other for years. They continue to stage a sort of pre-boxing-match quarrel in interviews.

    Hagar said Roth is an egotist, among other things.

    ``Aw,'' said Roth, ``most acrimony in rock 'n' roll is nothing but some mean words, a slap fight followed by tears, an elaborate healing and a reunion show with a memento shirt.''

    He reports that he and Hagar -- ``two superpowers, I mean, between us we have a hundred million record sales here'' -- will trade off opening and closing positions on the bill.

    Plus, ``The difference in what we do in terms of stagecraft is brilliant. Sam has 40 people onstage performing as if he's in a club, with effects and cannons. I'm taking the Brazilian jujitsu approach, which is, I don't use anything. I've got a three-piece band, flat floor, eight moves, rule world.''

    ``Roth throws a pretty good party himself,'' Hagar said. ``Mine is a down-to-earth, tequila-swiggin' rock and roll party.

    ``Dave throws a party and entertains himself. Dave's got his ego a little more attached to the party. In other words, it's all about him. But it is a party.''

    Hagar said Roth will be challenged on nights that he goes second.

    ``I don't see anyone being able to follow me. I've been doing this too long. I know what I'm doin', man. He better be damn good.

    ``But that's the good part about the thing. I think we'll both be at the top of the game. So, therefore, the fans win, and that's what it's all about.''

    Roth said they will play mostly Van Halen songs. ``We'll bang that catalogue like a new drum on Christmas,'' he said.

    And are he and Hagar -- who met face-to-face for the first time in March -- getting along well?

    ``Oh, I don't hang with him. My life, my lifestyle and my record collection are wildly different from Sam's.''

    Asked if the two singers can tolerate each other long enough to add a fall tour, Hagar said: ``Ah, I don't think so. I think we've got to stay away from each other as much as possible. I really do. I mean, being around the guy for a couple of hours, he's entertaining, but I could see it could grate on you after a while.''

    JagerMon, Thanks for the story, and welcome to VHForums.

    "But someone who works for them called Mike and said if he's caught dead out there with Sam and Dave, he's had it. They don't want him out there with us."

    This quote pretty much matches what I heard at Mike's Cinco de Mayo party (note: I did NOT hear it from Mike).

    Things are looking better by the minute! If, only the brothers could realize when you cant beat um join em!
    I hope that is the case by the time the tour gets to the (L.A.) Universal Amphitheatre.

    one. i really dont think eddie and alex will be that mad if mike did a show or two with dave and sammy.
    two. eddie said saturday that mike was easy and would play with anyone ( if those are the exact words) eddie did not seem mad when he was asked that.
    three. if it is true ( i think sam and dave are trying to wild up the brothers) that for sure will be the end of vh.
    van halen shall return. what you think is nothing might be something after all.

    Welcome to the Links JagerMon, & thanks for the post. 'Mmebbe reading into this too much, as the operative phrase appears to be "...during the tour", but I'd shit a brick if Mikey popped up on opening night !

    Then again, he has been known to be a good customer in the Flats, 'has some friends here, so....

    I hope Mikey is there - I am sitting in the 2nd row!

    Hopefully before next Wednesday the brothers themselves announce they are going to show up. It wouldn't surprise me anymore after the last few years. I would have bet you a grand that DLR and Sammy would NEVER tour together...............

    If that's true, then God bless Mikey for keeping the VH-dream alive. If he wants to go out on a high-note, he should perform with both Sammy and Dave!

    So will Mike play a song with Dave too? Or does he hate Dave too much to do that?

    Me too. The sheer immediacy of Mikey on opening night would be the biggest collective FU to the bros.

    Hopefully, by the time this tour gets to the Gorge, Mikey will be singing harmonies behind Dave where he belongs.

    And if Dave, Mikey, and Sammy all sang fucking "Happy Trails" at the end of the show, the Lying Dutchmen would have to put up or shut up.

    I'll be surprised if Mikey shows...I love Mikey, but he strikes me as a person that doesn't wanna "Rcok The Boat" too much. Therefore he wouldn't wanna ruin his great gig he's got with the Van Halen brothers, by joining the "enemy" and pissingthem off.....BUT, then again, is there even a BAND left for him to go back to? LOL... He may no longer care, cause frankly there's no Van Halen THERE !

    Shit if this doesn't work out, maybe Mikey can put together Snake for a reunion tour??? LOL
