Van Halen Icons Team Up With Metallica, Are Foo Fighters Involved?


Photos have surfaced of former Van Halen members Michael Anthony and Sammy Hagar with members of Metallica, Green Day, and ZZ Top, along with Eddie Money and Joe Satriani. Anthony suggested that it would make a great supergroup. Foo Fighters members weren’t present.

“Out to dinner the other night for Sammy’s wife Kari’s Birthday. Great hang with all these guys. What a band we all would make!!! Is that my wife Sue photobombing us??? #good friends #Kari’sbdaybash #Sueiseeyou!!#rockinatRedOrestaurant.”

“Happy Birthday to Sammy’s wife, Kari, we love you!! #whataparty #greatfriends #foodanddrink #castofcharacters #RedOrestaurant.”

Sammy Hagar discussed Michael Anthony possibly rejoining Van Halen in a new interview with Meltdown of Detroit’s WRIF radio station.

“There is no confirmation about a VH tour. I ain’t here to tell you ‘yes’ or ‘no,’ if it’s gonna happen or not gonna happen. But Mikey is my dearest friend in the world. He’s my favorite bass player and singer on the planet to be in a band with. And we will continue to be in a band our whole life. But if there was an opportunity for him to go play in Van Halen again, just to mend that up, just to keep that sour note from being in his head for the rest of his life, he has my blessings. I will take the time off while he goes and does it. We’ve already talked about it. But there is nothing confirmed. I can tell you straight-up right now — there has been nothing confirmed.”

“I ain’t gonna say it is or isn’t [gonna happen], because it’s not my place. Right now, we’re gonna go out and promote [The Circle album] that we made together, and we’re gonna do some shows. And then as soon as these shows are done and we figure [out] what we wanna do, we’ll go book some more and then keep doing it. ‘Cause Mikey is… He’s in The Circle. He’s my bass player. He’s my fellow singer. He’s my bandmate. He’s my dear friend. He’s my soul brother.”
