Michael Anthony Quit Van Halen

Pictures : Michael Anthony and Eddie Van Halen

Michael Anthony Quit Van Halen. The news was revealed when Van Halen spoke exclusively to RollingStone.com recently. Michael Anthony, the bassist for legendary band Van Halen has formed new supergroup band called Chickenfoot along with Joe Satriani, Chad Smith and Sammy Hagar. Eddie Van Halen said he never heard Chickenfoot before and didn't know what a "supergroup" means.

The interview is quite funny when Eddie Van Halen who received the Guitar God Award said : " If I'm a guitar god, then my son would be Jesus, right? That means on the next tour,
he'd have to walk on water ".

Here is the interview:

Have you heard Chickenfoot?
No, I haven't.

No particular interest?
Well, I don't listen to anything really, for one.

You make your own music?
Yeah, I'm too busy doing my own thing. I wish them well. The funny thing is that everyone who quits the band always claims they got fired by me. Hey, I'm not the bad guy here. When Hagar left the band, Mike went with him. Then when we get back together with Dave, and all of a sudden, he wants back in. It's like, "No, dude, you quit the band." So my son became the bass player. But we didn't give Mike the boot to have my son play. He was around. We didn't have a bass player. "Hey Wolfie, you want to play?"

It must be pretty mind-blowing to play with your kid.
He was only 15 years old. "You want to play bass?" "Sure." We did not have a bass player. That's the only thing really that bothers me about people acting like I'm the bad guy. I just sit in the studio and write music. I'm not some tyrant. I've got no beef with anybody. I wish them well. I hope they are ... I don't know what a "supergroup" means, but I hope they accomplish what they're setting out to do.

There was a time when people were writing the guitar off. What do you think of the fact that kids are playing guitar in all these games and guitar is being rediscovered by a new generation?
When was guitar written off?

Well, first there was the time when the synthesizer era...
Guitar is one thing you can't synthesize.
