During the week of Sammy Hagar’s Birthday Bash celebration in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, lucky fans had the opportunity to see a special show at the Cabo Wabo Cantina on On October 12, 2011. This “bonus show” featured an up and coming act “ROTUS”. Rotus is a band out of Southern California featuring Sean Hall (Lead Vocals & Guitar), David Soria (Bass) & Billy Becerra (Drums). Billy is the soon to be son-in-law of Michael Anthony. Michael’s daughter Elisha Anthony and Billy Becerra plan to wed next year.
The set list for this fun filled show included Rotus originals and Van Halen covers featuring guest bassist Michael Anthony himself on “Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love”, “D.O.A”, & “Runnin with the Devil”. Other special guests included Vinnie Paul of Pantera singing “Blind in Texas” by W.A.S.P and the infamous Kevin Dugan on drums.
You can catch Rotus live throughout Los Angeles and Orange County. Don’t be too surprised if Michael Anthony shows up and starts jamming out some classic VH tunes.
