I CAN HAS MICHAEL ANTHONY AND RATT COVERING HENDRIX?
No, I don’t know why I decided to make a reference to that stupid cat in the headline, either. Sometimes, I just make myself giggle, and fuck the readers.
ANYWAY, Van Halen’s Michael Anthony (and he is “Van Halen’s Michael Anthony,” not fucking “Chickenfoot’s Michael Anthony”) jumped at a recent Ratt gig, which means that a) a founding member of Van Halen is friends with some of the founding members of Ratt, b) Michael Anthony went to a Ratt show and has probably been to other Ratt shows, and c) a founding member of Van Halen is friends with some of the founding members of Ratt. My adolescent self is so fucking happy right now.
Anyways, they covered Hendrix’s “Fire,” and, honestly, they didn’t do that great a job. But come ON. IT’S MICHAEL ANTHONY AND RATT.
