Michael Anthony Happier Without Van Halen Drama

(hennemusic) Bassist Michael Anthony has lived through so many years of Van Halen battles that he's glad to be drama-free in his existence as a member of Chickenfoot.

"The best part about Chickenfoot is that nobody needs the money," Anthony tells Premiere Guitar . "We've got nothing we need to prove to anybody. We wanted this to be a fun band and when we get in the studio it's just so loose, relaxed, and open. It's like the early days of Van Halen. Everybody's just throwing in their input and having a great time making music. We don't want any pressure and we said if any came up, we should just stop doing this."

"At this point in my life and career, I'm so happy with what I'm doing and I want to have fun making music. I don't want any drama," Mike continues. "That whole drama thing in Van Halen, the way it ended up, I was like, 'I'd rather make no money having fun playing music than make a sh*tload of money tearing my hair out.' Maybe when I was 20 it would have been different, but not at this point. I want to keep my sanity." more on this story
