    Nitpicking, but someone can't be a classically-trained pianist if they can't read music.

    It's just a misinterpretation of what he said during the interview. Eddie claimed he was a classically-trained penis...
    All I can ask is that I suck a little less each time I pick up my guitar...

    This makes me not even want to see Van Halen anymore... This is just ridiculous.

    The whole thing just reads like the ramblings of an old man. All the stuff about Michael Anthony and Wolfgang was too much.

    I love Eddie's playing and songwriting...
    But fucking Christ, he can be a HUGE, ungrateful prick.

    “Every note Mike ever played, I had to show him how to play,” Van Halen claims. “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.” He doesn’t even credit Anthony for his harmonic backing vocals, which fans classify as an integral part of the group’s signature. “Mike’s voice is like a piccolo trumpet. But he’s not a singer. He just has a range from hell,” he says. “Mike was just born with a very high voice. I have more soul as a singer than he does. And you know, people always talk about Mike’s voice on Van Halen songs, but that’s a blend of Mike’s voice and my voice. It’s not just him.” (Anthony’s rebuttal to these accusations is diplomatic: “I am proud to say that my bass playing and vocals helped create our sound. I’ve always chosen to take the high road and stay out of the never-ending mudslinging, because I believe that it ultimately ends up hurting the Van Halen fans.”)
