In this exclusive interview with Jon Liebman of For Bass Players Only, former VAN HALEN bassist Michael Anthony tells the “real” Van Halen story, plus thoughts on Wolfgang Van Halen taking his place, the latest on CHICKENFOOT, his new signature Peavey amp, and the hot sauce business. Great interview!
Esquire.com has published a list of celebrity-branded hot sauces that includes some well known names in rock and metal circles including Michael Anthony, Chris Caffery (TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, SAVATAGE), Joe Perry (AEROSMITH), Doyle (MISFITS), Zakk Wylde (BLACK LABEL SOCIETY) and Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (GUNS N’ ROSES).
Mad Anthony’s Hot Sauce and Mad Anthony’s XXXTra Hot from his own recipes. For a while the sauces came with the slogan “So hot you’ll need two assholes,” which has since been dropped; but the point is these sauces will set your food on fire. Both are really hot, but also quite thick and well used to heat up BBQ, grilled meats, and salsas.
