    Default MICHAEL ANTHONY, SAMMY HAGAR Working On New Project

    MICHAEL ANTHONY, SAMMY HAGAR Working On New Project - May 12, 2008

    [from Blabbermouth.net]

    Former VAN HALEN bassist Michael Anthony has revealed in a posting on his web site that he is currently collaborating with ex-VAN HALEN singer Sammy Hagar and "a couple of good friends" on a new project. "It is going to be totally KICK-ASS!!" says Anthony.

    Anthony told Billboard.com last October that he's not going out of his way to keep tabs on VAN HALEN's current reunion tour with singer David Lee Roth. He admitted that he was "bummed out for a little bit" after being booted from the band and especially after he was temporarily replaced from album cover images on the group's web site but that he's largely over it.

    "I'm totally fine with it now 'cause it is what it is," Anthony explained. "There's no use dwelling on it or whining about it. The fans know the band. They know what we've done, and I'm really proud of the history of the band. But I'm focusing on having fun and doing what Sam [Sammy Hagar] and I are out doing right now. As long as I keep that perspective on it, that's good."

    "The shit I read on this site." -- Dave's Dreidel (Nov 6th, 2013)

    "Don't ever confuse talent with fame." -- Bob Lefsetz

    "There's very little greatness in this world, but in the crucible of quality there's a special corner reserved for Van Halen." -- Bob Lefsetz

    I'm just hoping that since Satch still tours all over the world that maybe they'll head over to the UK and play a few dates here...

    Well, the last time they mentioned they were working on a "kick-ass" project, it was Planet Us and all we got out of it were 2 tunes that never made it anywhere; "Vertigo" and "Peeping Through A Hole".

    I hope this one actually comes to light.
    "Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that."

    "This is a lttle prayer dedicated to the separation of church and state. I guess if they are going to force those kids to pray in schools they might as well have a nice prayer like this: Our Father who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation indivisible as in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail. Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."

    "I think it's the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is drawn and cross it deliberately."

    Since Sammy didn't add any June dates to his tour I hope the new project is recording in June. Odd that he has dates in May, early June but then a month off in the summer before a handful more dates in July and August. Seems like if he was going on the road in May he would of wanted to fill up the schedule for June.

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed that June is for the new project. He finishes up this mini-tour with the Wabo's this summer and then by late fall or winter we get the 'super group' (i hope not named Chickenfoot) tour. Play a couple Chili Peppers tunes, Satch solo, Sammy solo and VH and the new music.

    Tat would be AWESOME!

    However, the Chili Peppers idea is a little weird imo. But if Sammy, Mike and Satch are involved....I'm there...even if they are playing show-tunes!

    Isn't Chad Smith the drummer for the new group? I would think since they would need a full set list with one album you would put in a couple Pepper's tunes. This would give MA the chance to chug Mad Anthony sauce instead of Jack Daniels.

    No you are 100% right. I'm ust not sure about hearing Sam on Chili Pepper tunes, that's all

    LOL! Yeah, that's what I thought but I just thought it was interesting to note that Chad has the time off for this thing to actually get off the ground...

    I think Chad is smart enough to know that the RHCP are his main gig and that this is just a one-off.

    I would love to see this happen, but this seems very Planet Us to me. Everyone besides Mike has other stuff that is bigger and better and can't see them making it a priority over the RHCP, G3, and the Waboritas.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.
