    Default Van Halen reunion talk flatters Anthony

    I used to want to be Eddie when I was a kid. Now, I wanna be Mike.


    http://www.classicrockmagazine.com/n...-anthony/#null

    Former Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony says he’s “flattered” that frontman David Lee Roth wants him back in the band.

    An original lineup reunion remains unlikely as Eddie Van Halen continues to move forward with his son Wolfgang playing bass.

    But Roth recently said he’d love to see Anthony back in the fold – not lease because his voice adds a great deal to the band’s sound.

    Now Anthony tells Howard Stern, via Blabbermouth: “It was flattering to hear Dave talk like that. He never used to talk like that when we were all playing together!

    “But hey – I really don’t know what to say to that. It was flattering that he said that. And, obviously, I’m the kind of guy that… water under the bridge. I don’t hold any kind of grudges for anything, and you never know what will happen at any time.”

    The bassist fell foul of the guitarist’s temper in the mid-2000s and was replaced by Wolfgang for the reunion with Roth. It’s thought the disagreement stemmed from Anthony remaining in touch with ex singer Sammy Hagar, with whom he later formed Chickenfoot.

    But although the supergroup is taking a year off while drummer Chad Smith focuses on the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Anthony isn’t necessarily looking for more work.

    He says: “At this point in your life and career and whatever, it’s more about the friendship, and just people. And if the music side of it happens, if that comes about, all the better – but that’s not what it’s really about at this point.”

    Hagar also recently said he’d like to rekindle his friendship with Van Halen, and exchange phone numbers – although he’d pass on Anthony’s at the same time.

    Fuck Mike! It's so fuckin obvious that he wants back in VH! He should just lie in the bed he made and keep playing with Chickenfart or whatever the band he and the Red Worm are in together.


    He just talks about VH to get press. Fuck him and the bottle of hot sauce he rode in on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Friendship? There goes that idea.

    The impression I get lately-and I would love to be completely and utterly wrong about this-is that unless your name is Alex, Wolf, or asslick Matty, then you don't get to be friends with Eddie...or even be in the same room with him. Like I said, just an ignorant fan's impression.

    Mike had his chance, and he blew it!!! If he just got rid of the takin' the high road, easy going routine...AND tried to be in two bands, none of this shit would've went down.
