NEW YORK ( - Is Van Halen now a duo?
Rumors have been circulating that Michael Anthony has parted company with Edward and Alex Van Halen, but the bassist says it's just not true.

In a message on his website (, Anthony writes, "There's a rumor floating around...that I've left Van Halen, and that rumor has picked up some steam, so I thought I should put it to rest before it goes any further. I haven't met with any lawyers, and I haven't quit Van Halen. I'm still the bass player for the baddest rock 'n' roll band on the planet and have always been!"

Anthony adds, "I had a great time out on the road with my buddy Sammy (Hagar) and we've got some cool ideas planned for our Planet Us side project, but Van Halen is always my number one priority." Anthony made several appearances with Hagar and his band, the Waboritas, on Hagar's co-headlining tour with David Lee Roth earlier this year.

Planet Us is the supergroup featuring Hagar, Anthony, and guitarist Neal Schon and drummer Deen Castronovo from Journey. Hagar has described the music they've recorded as "a combination of Van Halen, Led Zeppelin, and Tool." There's no word on when it will be released.
