Former Van Halen Bassist Michael Anthony 'Flattered' By Reunion Idea
Former Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony is flattered that singer David Lee Roth wants him back in the band. Roth had said in February that it was "a disappointment" that the group hadn't called on Anthony to play bass for the reformed Van Halen in 2007. Instead, Eddie Van Halen's son Wolfgang was drafted in. Roth also said that Anthony had "one of the greatest high tenor voices ever," and that he would always look forward to a reunion with him, according to Ultimate Classic Rock. Anthony has now replied via an interview with Eddie Trunk, and seems genuinely honored to be given such high praise: "I really don't know what to say to that. It was flattering that he said that," said Anthony. "At this point in your life and career and whatever, the career aside, it's more about the friendship and just people. And if the music side of it, if that happens, if that comes about, all the better, but that's not what it's really about at this point." In other recent Van Halen news, it was recently revealed that David Lee Roth once insured his penis in the 1970s. The news was posted on April Fools day, but he says the story is completely true - including the part where he named it "Little Elvis." Do you want to see Michael Anthony back in Van Halen?
