Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony Share Favorite Sunset Strip Memories
The pair teamed up at the Whisky A Go Go - where Van Halen were once the house band in the 70s - to talk about the club's legendary history. "I was in high school when Black Sabbath played their first US tour and they played here," explains Anthony. "Except that night I couldn't get in. We drove up and down and stood outside and listened."
"Rhinoceros - they were from L.A.," says Hagar. "Kind of a band that never made it but when I was coming up they were my favorite band. And I came to see them and they were opening for Steppenwolf. It just happened that I got to see Steppenwolf, too."
Hagar's 6 episode AXS-TV series sees the Red Rocker drive across the country to jam with some of music's biggest names, including Tommy Lee of Motley Crue, Bob Weir and Mickey Hart of the Grateful Dead, Heart's Ann and Nancy Wilson, Alice Cooper and Alice In Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell.
