Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony had a recent appearance on The Howard Stern Show and revealed an untold conversation about Van Halen reunion. Anthony said that Van Halen contacted him about it but things didn’t go as expected.
Here is Michael Anthony’s statement:
“I was actually contacted by their management last October, to see if I would be interested in something.
And that’s basically as far as it went. I think they were trying to put something together on their end, management was, and something broke down on their end and the plug got pulled.”
Last month, Sammy Hagar also confirmed that Van Halen contacted Michael Anthony about the reunion. Here is what Hagar said earlier:
“He’s a special guy, he has my blessings and when they’re done, we’ll go back out, if they do it – if it happens.
But the things I’ve been reading – it ain’t gonna happen if they think Mike is gonna come out and do his bass solo with his Jack Daniel’s bass, say goodbye and stand on the side of the stage and watch Wolfie [Van Halen] play his songs all night. [Laughs]”
