It May Finally Happen!

in the wake of the tragic passing of his 15 day old grandson, legendary bassist Michael Anthony reached out to his fans asking for kind donations to to benefit the hospital that helped treat his grandson. To everyone’s surprise, the biggest donation made was a $10,000 donation made by former bandmate and lead singer for Van Halen, David Lee Roth.

It’s been over a decade since Van Halen and Michael Anthony have parted ways and one of the burning questions that’s been on every fan’s mind is “will there be a reunion?”. During that time, all signs pretty much pointed to ‘no’. However, it looks like that might all change, now!

In a sit down interview with Eddie Trunk, Michael Anthony opened up about how he felt about the donation and how he felt that ‘now is the time’. He says that he would like to do it with David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar.

“I think now’s the time, especially if you listen to some of the interviews Sammy Hagar has been doing or whatever now. Right now, he’s saying the proper way to do a Van Halen tour, he’s saying, ‘Let’s do it with Dave and myself.’”

He also states that he immediately tried to get in touch with Roth as soon as he saw the donation.

Would he do a tour with just Dave ?

Would he do a tour that featured both himself & Wolfgang, trading off on different songs ?


When you turn on your stereo, does it return the favor?

I listened to the broadcast and I would say talk of a reunion based on what was said is maybe jumping the gun. Basically, Mike layed out what he thought would have to happen in order for this to become reality – but he also made it pretty clear that none of that has already happened or that anything is in the works.

I am sure it would be Wolfgang opening up for VH and then the crew all playing the set.

Regardless of whether or not there is a reunion … that was a very classy move by Roth.

It really was. Dave is a classic guy when it’s all said & done.
I’m all for a reunion, but it has to be original flavor. The circus and lack of continuity that comes with the concept of rotating singers would make for a terrible experience for most of the audience – no matter which guy you prefer.


Resident dickhead. I will hurt your delicate feelings.

No surprise Dave would donate in this way. Being medically trained and reasonably compassionate, it makes good sense. Nice of Mike to recognize this as well, although Dave surely didn’t do it for publicity.

I agree with Vain on the reunion topic, although I’d be fine if they kept things as they are with Wolf on bass.
