Michael Anthony Confirms He Was Approached About Van Halen Reunion

For months, rumors were flying that Van Halen was planning a reunion tour with original bassist Michael Anthony. Now Anthony is saying the rumors were true - but the plan fell apart in the end. Anthony said Van Halen approached him last October about a reunion. However, Anthony says, "something broke down on their end and the plug got pulled". Anthony, who was replaced by Eddie's son Wolfgang in 2006, says he'd still be open to a reunion if it was done "the correct way", which would be "four guys up there just doing their thing".

Meanwhile, Michael Anthony performed a few Van Halen hits along with a Kinks classic during a mini-set in L.A. over the weekend. You can see some videos below!
