During a recent interview with Vegas Rocks TV, former Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony addressed the recent rumors about Van Halen reunion. He also made a little joke about current bassist of Van Halen, Wolfgang Van Halen.
Interviewer said ‘back in the day, Wolfgang was learning bass’, Michael Anthony replied:
“Well, he wasn’t learning bass back then. Back then he was just kind of a pain in the ass little kid that would come around go, ‘Heyyyyyyy.’ Just kidding.”
Interviewer said ‘but did you ever say he’s being groomed for my spot?’, Michael responded:
“No, no. I mean look what his Dad does, you know that he was going to be in the business somehow. As far as him being groomed for my spot, I have no idea as far as if that’s what Eddie was thinking at any point or water.”
Interviewer said ‘how did you find out?’, and Michael:
“I find out about it the same way that you did, the same way that everybody did, through the press.”
Interviewer asked ‘can we just get Alex, Eddie, and David over to my house for a BBQ and kiss and make up?’, Michael:
“You’re going to kiss and make up? (laughs)”
Interviewer said ‘whatever happens’, Michael continued:
“I’m always a never say never [guy]. But at this point I’m very happy with what I’m doing, I’m having a great time. If something happens it happens, if it doesn’t it doesn’t, at this point.”
