Michael Anthony, saint

This Rolling Stone interview with Van Halen’s now-ex-bassist is possibly the best example of grace under fire I’ve ever seen. In the often tawdry world of rock and roll — let alone the comedy of errors that is Van Halen! — this response is honest without being nasty. straight-up without the spite to which he’s absolutely entitled. Man, I don’t think I’d have the patience to react that way if I got as royally screwed over as he did!

Thanks to Mike Weigand for the tip. We’re still going to the San Jose concert, assuming we can get tickets.
