Michael Anthony Looking Forward To New Van Halen Album

(Gibson) Ever the class act, former Van Halen bass player Michael Anthony says he's looking forward to hearing the new VH album especially because it includes material which he originally played with the band on their original demos in the 1970s.

In an interview with Rob Birnie of Planet Rock, to air in full in a few weeks, Anthony said he would not be looking for songwriting credits on the material on the new Van Halen album, A Different Kind of Truth, despite the band's former policy of crediting all members equally. "I don't want to do anything. I just let it be," Anthony said. "And, hey, it'll be nice to hear some of those old songs again that I haven't played in a long time."

Much has been made of how the band returned to early demos of unreleased songs to mine for inspiration for the new material. In an interview with the Los Angeles Times over the weekend, singer David Lee Roth said, "It's material that Eddie and I generated, literally, in 1975, 1976 and 1977. Usually fellas in our weight division will kind of gamely or ironically, wink, wink try to hail back to it [but] keep a safe, mature distance from it." more on this story
