(Classic Rock) Chickenfoot bassist Michael Anthony cast doubt on his former band' Van Halen's claim that they cancelled 31 tour dates due to exhaustion, asking why it took them three days to say that was their reason.

The current lineup, featuring original singer David Lee Roth and Eddie's son Wolfgang in Anthony's place, surprised fans by pulling three months of shows. Roth later appeared in a video to explain: "The band is getting along famously, better than we have in quite some time. As usual, we've bit off way more than we could chew when it came to scheduling."

Anthony says: "Everybody's got their own opinions. Who knows? To me it sounds kinda interesting if you say you're tired and you want to recharge your batteries you don't put 30 shows on sale. If I were a fan I'd be going, 'Why are you putting 30 shows on sale?'"
