    Default MICHAEL ANTHONY Says CHICKENFOOT Would Open For VAN HALEN.

    http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/bla...sitemID=161630


    CHICKENFOOT, the supergroup featuring former VAN HALEN members Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony, will release its sophomore effort, "Chickenfoot III", on September 27. VAN HALEN is also rumored to be releasing a new album this fall.

    Speaking to VH1 Radio Networks' Dave Basner, Michael said, "I know people, from the fans and the critics, they'll all be doing the heavy comparison thing and you know what, I'd be lying if I didn't say, 'Yeah, sure I'm interested to hear what a new album, you know, what they got happening.' But I'm very proud of what we've done and I don't mind at all. They can put their album out before, after, or on the same day. They want to go out on tour, we'll open up for them, I don't care. [laughs]"

    Anthony hasn't spoken to any of the members of VAN HALEN since the end of the band's 2004 tour. He said earlier this year, "The tour did not end as harmoniously as we would have liked it to and it probably should have gone on longer than it did." Still, Anthony wouldn't be against having his band CHICKENFOOT open for VAN HALEN should they go on tour — "I got no problem with that," he said.

    Anthony last year said that Eddie and Alex Van Halen hold a grudge against him for maintaining a friendship with Sammy Hagar. Anthony recalled to Mojo, that the problems started between him and the band when in the late '90s, VAN HALEN once again tried unsuccessfully to bring David Lee Roth back into the fold. With VAN HALEN seemingly on hiatus, Hagar had called Anthony to see if he was interested in hooking up with him and Neal Schon in their side project PLANET US.

    Anthony explained, "Some VAN HALEN fans say I left the band to hook up with Sammy, but I never said, 'I quit.' There was nothing going on in the VAN HALEN camp, but Eddie kinda backed me up against a wall. . . Eddie felt that I was a traitor. I helped hook Sammy back up with them for the 2004 reunion tour, but Eddie didn't want me to be a part of that originally, so I took a big pay cut. I'm not crying, I didn't need the money. I did that because I wanted to play for the fans. I signed away any legal rights I had with the name, the trademark or whatever. I did it because if that was the last time VAN HALEN would ever be on stage, I wanted to be part of it."

    He went on to say, "The major reason why I'm not in VAN HALEN (now) is because I became friends with Sammy again. The Van Halen brothers never got over that. If they hold a grudge, they hold it forever."

    During VAN HALEN's August 2007 press conference announcing their reunion tour with David Lee Roth and Eddie's son Wolfgang Van Halen on bass, Roth skirted over the issue of why a then-16 year old kid was playing bass instead of Anthony. "Michael Anthony is part of this band's history, " he said. "There's a lot of great alumni who have been through this band. I'm shocked that any of us are still vertical after 30 years. And as far as why Wolf is in the band, may I speak for you, Ed? I understand how he wanted to play with the boy because he's amazing."

    Sure would make for an interesting tour. I think Ed would be the obstacle from this happening.

    That sounds like something a person would do because they NEEDED the money. Looking back, that whole tour was a joke. Probably would've been a better idea to keep your rights? Anthony knew what kind of shape Eddie was in prior to the tour... nobody ever said musicians were good business people.

    That's why I love Mike...

    As far as CF opening for VH. I'm cool with that...love the first record. I think the new single from CF is a piece of shit lyrically...Sam just need to quit writing lyrics about "waking up in morning"
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    Chickenfoot will open for Van Halen as soon as John and George reunite with Paul and Ringo.

    As far as "The VH brothers holding a grudge forever", that'$ $imply fal$e. They already reunited with Sammy once and now they're back with Dave. $$$ talks ...

    Old news. Mike said it b4 with the best of intentions. Sam said it too and was kinda being cool about it and kinda being smartassy/little cocky/competitive about it. Eh they all should group hug and get over it already.


    In more important news. I actually had some Mad Anthony hot sauce on an omelet this morning. True story.

    Ed is definitely the only obstacle from keeping Chickenfoot opening. Dave I think would love it. Dave would love to have Sammy opening for him every night....it would pad Dave's ego. Ed might not want Satriani opening for him though. Alex and Wolf are gonna do what ever Ed wants, so they are non factors in this equation.
