Van Halen Michael Anthony On Touring: Best Of Both Worlds?
Former Van Halen bassist (which still sounds weird) Michael Anthony thinks now is the perfect time for VH to get back on the road. The obvious question is who would front the band? Well, Anthony might have come up with an out of the box plan. He's more than qualified, being one of the providing the best harmony vocals in rock the last 35 years.
How about both iconic singers? In a recent interview, Anthony said "well, I mean, partly because you obviously see all of these other bands doing it these days. And also for Van Halen's fans. Maybe some kind of proper closure or something. I'm not sure. Everybody in the band is still relatively healthy and alive. So there's one thing right there. And Sammy has brought it up quite a few times in interviews he's done. He'd be open to doing a tour with him and Dave singing."
It wouldn't be far fetched. Sammy and Dave famously toured together 15 years ago, although that tour didn't turn out as harmonious as it started. Plus, when the DLR fronted VH played Bangor in 2015, we got a TON of deep cuts (which were awesome), but tell me you didn't miss 'Black And Blue' 'Dreams', or even 'Poundcake'.
But no VH3. Yes, it was a decent album doomed to fail. However, no.
