    Default Michael Anthony Awarded Icon of the Year

    Michael Anthony Awarded Icon of the Year at RockGodz Hall of Fame Ceremony & Jam

    November 4, 2016


    In 1977, four guys were signed by Warner Bros records, and we all had a big dream to play the music we love making, and play to the world. And I thank God every day now, almost 40 years later Im still here, being able to do it. Playing music for the fans, and do what I love to do.

    "I wish Bon Jovi would've given me a call before he recorded all of his hits, because the lyrics would've been smarter, the melodies would've been much more smashing, and they would've sold a lot fewer records." -David Lee Roth

    "My beef is people thinking Bon Jovi is good cuz they sold lots of records to housewives." -tango

    "But being number one doesnt really mean jack fuck all. We sold twice as many records as other records that year (1984) that landed in the Number One position." ~Eddie Van Halen

    Yeah, I can see why Ed wanted to replace him for so long. He sucks, and he seems to be such a dick.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Congrats Mike.
    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 thats intentionally. So I would always look forward to that reunion. - David Lee Roth

    To have a guy like Dugie be his tech for almost 40 years tells you all you need to know about Mike. I always say hello to Kevin at shows he's the worlds best tech. Congrats

    Saw this earlier on the VHND.
    Congrats, Mike!!! Well deserved. Thanks for all the great memories!

    One of my favourite VH quotes came from Cannonmouth, as well - "Have a good time, ALL the time!"
    "There's too many people on this basketball that's floating around the sun, who are too afraid to allow themselves to FEEL" - Edward Van Halen
    "Van Halen was never about the singer..." - A very wise fan.
    "Embrace the past. Live in the moment but keep your eyes on the future, and keep on moving forward..." - Richie Sambora

    That quote actually came from Viv Savage of Spinal Tap, as seen on the documentary filmed during their '82 "Smell the Glove" tour...

    Oh wow, really? Been a long time since I've seen the movie...

    However, it was new to me when I heard MA say it! Haha.
