Former Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony recently spoke about forming a new band.
Michael Anthony talks about the matter
During an appearance on yesterday’s (Wednesday, March 22) edition of SiriusXM’s “Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk”, he was asked if he has any plans to form a new project or band once Sammy Hagar has finally retired from performing with The Circle.
“Well, I wasn’t going to mention anything about it, but there is a little side project thing that I’ve kind of been speaking to some people, and might be doing a couple of things with. I don’t wanna get ahead of myself and mention too much, but it might involve Phil X [Bon Jovi guitarist] and John Douglas, who you know as [the touring drummer] for Aerosmith right now. I’ve known J.D. for many years, since he’s worked with Van Halen… What a great guy. And we do have a singer. I don’t wanna mention any names, but a really, really cool singer. And we’re recording just for fun right now, some stuff. That’s all I can say.”
Anthony guested on “Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk” to promote his appearance at a fundraising event and concert benefiting Save The Heartbeat on March 25 at Tiki Bar in Costa Mesa, California. Also performing at the show will be Phil X, Hagar and John 5, among other musicians.
Save The Heartbeat is a non-profit organization that benefits those that are affected by congenital heart disease (CHD). Danielle and Jonathan Maloof started this charity after their son Remington was born with an undiagnosed congenital heart defect in 2013.
