    Default Sammy claims Mikes voice was used on 2008 tour!

    http://ultimateclassicrock.com/sammy...ce-in-concert/

    Sammy Hagar has accused his former bandmates in Van Halen of using their ex-bassist Michael Anthony‘s backing vocals via tape in concerts on their 2008 tour with singer David Lee Roth, even though Anthony was not performing with the band at the time.

    In an interview with Attention Deficit Delirium, Hagar doesn’t mince words: “Those vocal harmonies on the last tour were Mike on tape.. Mike should have reamed them for it.” Sammy should know, having partnered up with Anthony on four Van Halen albums and two Chickenfoot records so far, as well as countless concerts.

    He goes on to declare, “Wolfie (Eddie Van Halen’s son and current Van Halen bassist) doesn’t sing like that, and Ed sure as hell don’t.” Hagar then challenges people to go on the internet and listen to audio of Eddie singing along with Hagar during songs like ‘When it’s Love’ on their last tour together in 2004. “Ed can’t sing, and his voice is shot if he can, from cigarettes and booze anyway.”

    Sammy also still doubts that the much-discussed new Van Halen album, which would be their first with Roth since 1984, is ever coming out. “I don’t think they’re ever going to get together with Dave. They’ve been working on that record for a year and a half or whatever, and they just keep postponing and postponing it.”

    The thing that always confuses me is when people will say "Oh those harmonies were missing. Wolfie can't do it." But then you hear "They piped in Mike's vocals."

    I personally think Eddie is so arrogant(if that's the right word for this) about his son's abilities that he would think they don't need Mike's vocals.

    Honestly I do think Sam's kinda blowing smoke on this one.

    There was a front row video of them in San Diego doing "Dance The Night Away" and the harmonies sounded God awful, because Ed and Wolfie couldn't harmonize together. I don't think there's any way Mike was piped in because the vocals simply didn't sound good.

    Hey, if they can fake that, they can certainly fake the background vocals.

    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    Hey Sammy, did VH use Mike's voice on the upcomming new VH album too?
    "I could call it anything, but the only word I can think of is Brown. It's just a warm sound. Warm, big, majestic" - Eddie Van Halen on his Tone

    "Van Halen is definitely a ladies band, and I´ve got the Polaroids to prove it". - David Lee Roth

    WOLFGANG did the IMPOSSIBLE, he brought back VAN HALEN, DEAL WITH IT.
