If an Eddie Van Halen tribute happens in the future Sammy Hagar & Michael Anthony are all in.
“”It’s gotta happen,” Hagar told New York’s Q104.3 in a recent interview which you can watch above. “Of course it’s gonna happen. No one’s really connected all the dots with everyone involved, but I have been told, and I have read interviews with various people involved — with Wolfie [Eddie’s son Wolfgang Van Halen] and Valerie [Bertinelli, Eddie’s ex-wife] and Eddie’s wife [Janie] that he was married to at the time — they all said as soon as this is over, we’re gonna get everybody together and do a tribute or whatever; just a ‘thank you,’ a goodbye, a send-off. And that’s an absolute must. I don’t care if it takes 10 years — that will happen. And if we’re available to do it, we’ll do it.”
Anthony was on the same page with Hagar, adding that the music Eddie created with his bandmates is far too important for it not to be give a proper tribute.
“We’ve got to celebrate the music – so much good music,” said Anthony.
