MICHAEL ANTHONY: STILL CLASSIER THAN THE VAN HALEN BROTHERS
Michael Anthony has finally released a statement with regards to all the bullshit surrounding the recent Van Halen reunion. Amid all the shit talking and removing the guy’s photo from the band website and deleting his songwriting credits and all that other crap, it would certainly be understandable if the dude wanted to lash out at the Van Halen brothers – but he doesn’t. The statement reads, in part:
“It’s not that I’m not touring with VAN HALEN because I’m going out with Sammy [Hagar; former VAN HALEN frontman]. I’m going out with Sammy because I was not invited to do the VH tour. Sammy told me that if I was asked to be part of the VH tour and decided to do it, it would be totally cool, and it would not tarnish our friendship in the least!! Well, it’s not to be, and life goes on…
“One last note from myself to all the VAN HALEN fans out there who will be attending their shows… Wolfgang [Van Halen] is a great kid, so don’t judge him too harshly. I’m sure he’ll do just fine!!”
Wow. I don’t even really have anything to say about this; even I couldn’t resist busting Wolfgang’s balls, and here’s Michael Anthony, shaming me. It’s like every time this dude opens his mouth, he just makes Eddie and company look that much dumber.
