Hagar: Van Halen Used Michael Anthony Tapes On Last Tour
November 3, 2011
Sammy Hagar has accused Van Halen of using tapes of Michael Anthonys vocals on their reunion tour with David Lee Roth.
Blabbermouth report that Hagar has said: Those vocal harmonies on the last tour were Mike on tape. Mike shouldve reamed them for it. Wolfie dont sing like that, and Ed sure as hell dont. Go on the Internet and listen to Eds voice live from the reunion with me. Hear him sing on When Its Love and some of those songs. Ed cant sing, and his voice is shot if he can, from cigarettes and booze anyway.
Anthony was replaced on bass by Eddie Van Halens son Wolfgang for the 2007/8 tour.
Hagar also added that he doubts there will be a new Van Halen studio album, something the band have been working on for a while.
Theyve been working on that record for a year and a half or whatever, and they keep postponing and postponing it. I just know that Wolfie, Dave and Ed are not the Van Halen that the world wants to see. To do it with David without Mike was a horrible decision, but those guys havent made a good decision since I left the band.
