    Default MA Update

    Former VAN HALEN bassist Michael Anthony has posted the following message on his official blog:

    "Last Friday [Feb. 23] one of my dreams came true as I got to jam with three fantastic guitar players, Jeff Beck, Billy Gibbons and Jimmy Vaughn! It was for an event here in L.A. at the Peterson Automotive Museum, celebrating the 75th anniversary of the '32 Ford. I'll have pictures and a writeup all about the event on my site hopefully this week. In the meantime you can also see a couple of shots on Jeff's web site: www.jeffbeck.com.

    "On Sunday [Feb. 25] I surprised Sammy [Hagar] at the NASCAR race, where he played a few songs before the race. I jumped up to sing a little on 'I Can't Drive 55', which was televised before the start of the race. Next I'm looking forward to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction on Mar. 12, then I will fly down to Puerto Vallerto to meet the cruise ship to jam with Sam's band (THE WABOS). We are working on a few older VH songs, and I'll be handling all the lead vocals..WATCH OUT, HAGAR!! I'm looking forward to bashing it up a bit with all of you on the cruise!"

    Anthony isn't letting his dismissal from VAN HALEN get in the way of his feelings about being elected to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. On his web site, the bassist previously wrote, "I was very excited and honored to learn that VAN HALEN would be inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this March. I want to thank Eddie, Alex, Sammy, and Dave. It has been an amazing experience and I am very proud of what we have accomplished. I'm not sure yet how the induction ceremony will work, but I'll keep everyone posted as I find out the details. A Big MA Toast to all our fans for their tremendous support over the years! Love you all and bottoms up!!"

    Last year, Eddie Van Halen announced that his 15-year-old son Wolfgang had replaced Anthony in the band. No announcement has been made about the reason for the lineup change.

    The band will be inducted March 12 at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City.

    I used to wonder why he was grinning all the time(Michael Ian Black talkin about EVH on VH1 I love the 80's) but then i realized the reason he's grinning is because he's Eddie F*#king Van Halen

    He shoulda kept up with the CVH vocalizing but oh well. At least he's having fun and cranking out the old stuff.

    There are a few reviews of the Deuce Gala performance at the following link (note that it is a JB fansite), scroll down to the "February 28.5, 2007" section:

    Seriously. What were they thinking, lowering themselves like that?

    All kidding aside, Mike joining Jeff Beck's crew would be nothing short of...well, completely bitchin'.

    sorry about the double thread. Didn't realize this was already posted. I'm never starting a thread again, even if I have news that no one else does. I'm taking my ball and going home.

    Maybe Jeff Beck could join the Chickenfoot project, that would make things interesting...

    Sammy Hagar - vocals/guitar
    Jeff Beck - lead guitar
    Michael Anthony - bass/backing vocals
    Chad Smith - drums

    Bring it on...
    “And what we have at our fingertips is arguably one of the greatest high tenor voices ever – that was in Michael Anthony. In our tiny little corner of the universe, that voice is as identifiable as the high voice in Earth, Wind & Fire, as identifiable as the high voice in the Beach Boys. Van Halen is an indelicate house blend of both – that’s intentionally. So I would always look forward to that reunion.” - David Lee Roth
