LAMONT’S MUSIC NOTES-JUNE 20, 2019…HAPPY 65th BIRTHDAY TO FORMER MICHAEL ANTHONY. ANTHONY IS BEST KNOWN AS THE ORIGINAL BASS PLAYER AND BACKGROUND VOCALIST FOR VAN HALEN. HE IS CURRENTLY A MEMBER OF CHICKENFOOT AND SUPERGROUP THE CIRCLE. HE IS ALSO SAMMY HAGAR’S RUNNING MATE.
THERE WERE RUMORS THAT HE WAS GOING TO GET BACK TOGETHER WITH
VAN HALEN FOR A POSSIBLE REUNION. ANTHONY CONFIRMED HE WAS APPROACHED BY VAN HALEN’S MANAGEMENT, BUT SAID THE CONVERSATION DIDN’T GET VERY FAR:
“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.”
ACCORDING TO MIKE, HE SAID HE WOULD DEFINITELY BE INTERESTED IN A REUNION:
“if it was done the correct way. You know — four guys up there just doing their thing.”
MICHAEL ALSO HAS A LINE OF BAR-B-QUE SAUCE, HOT SAUCE, AND HOT MUSTARD. HIS HOT SAUCE BRAND “MAD ANTHONY” IS TOP NOTCH AND HAS BEEN HELD BACK FROM MASS DISTRIBUTION ONLY DUE TO ITS PACKAGING.
IT SEEMS MAJOR CHAINS HAVE BEEN RELUCTANT TO DISTRIBUTE A HOT SAUCE THAT ADVERTISES “SO HOT YOU’LL NEED TWO ***HOLES” ON THE BOTTLE.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MICHAEL ANTHONY.
