Turner Apologizes To Van Halen's Anthony For Supergroup Rumor
1
Joe Lynn Turner and Carmine Appice have apologised to Michael Anthony after rumours circulated the three were forming a supergroup. The story made headlines after Melodic Rock said former Rainbow frontman Turner and drummer Appice had started work on a musical project, and Chickenfoot bassist Anthony was involved. Turner has dismissed the rumor as just that and states he didn't speak to the press or send out a news release on the subject. But he does admit they've discussed the possibility and that Anthony's name was mentioned. A press statement says: "Turner and Appice would like to specifically apologise to Anthony and his fans for any confusion this rumour or any casual conversations might have caused". Thanks to Antimusic for the report.

    Who writes these articles? I could barely make any sense of any of this.

    Wait, I'm confused. They're not forming a supergroup?

    No, they're not forming one with Anthony. Sounds like Turner and Appice want to start something with someone, though

    Why the **** would the worst bassist ever's name be mentioned in the same sentence as supergroup?

    Pretty sure Pete Wentz isn't the one they're forming a supergroup with. I'm not a massive Van Halen or Chickenfoot fan, but the man knows his way around a bass.

    I really wish I knew where the "Mike Anthony is the worst bassist" crap started. By EVH when they didn't invite him back? Listen to the old records, listen to Chickenfoot. You can hear that he can play more but plays what the song needs. You think the Van Halen catalog is easier to play than most of the glam metal bands in the 80s? Or some of the 90s grunge acts?
