Eddie Van Halen made some unpleasant claims about former bassist Michael Anthony. “Every note Mike ever played, I had to show him how to play,” Van Halen said. “Before we’d go on tour, he’d come over with a video camera and I’d have to show him how to play all the parts.” Former Van Halen singer Sammy Hagar responded with a two-minute video on Facebook, referring to the guitarist’s claims as “bullshit” and wrapping up the video with telling him “fuck you” and “you’re a liar”.
