During a recent interview former Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony revealed who in his former band he recently reconnected with.
During an interview with radio host Eddie Trunk, Anthony was asked the last time he talked with any of his former band mates in Van Halen. Anthony went on to tell a story from earlier this summer when he met up with a former band tour tech & talked about their memories of the days back in Van Halen. Then after a few drinks the tech videoed a message to drummer Alex Van Halen. Alex then called the tech’s phone & handed over to Anthony. The two talked about 20 minutes according to Anthony.
Regarding the conversation between the two, Anthony did say they didn’t talk about any thing “heavy”, but just about life in general and what’s going on in the music industry.
He also squashed any reunion rumors that might start by saying that he’s over waiting to see if he ever gets asked back into the band, but that he still is a “never-say-never” type of guy. And that if they ever did get back together he wouldn’t want any of the four separate planes, buses, or anything. But he doesn’t think it could ever be a brotherhood like it was before though.
