Sammy Hagar recently shared how he became best friends with Michael Anthony.
With the release of The Circle’s Space Between album, Hagar shared with Ultimate Classic Rock on how he met Anthony, who would eventually become his best friend. “I don’t think I met Michael until I walked into the 5150 studio [in 1985] for what I guess you could call an audition,” he recalled. “But it wasn’t really an audition, I went down to jam with the boys, when Eddie asked me to come down. I said sure, let’s see if we can get along.”
“Back then, he and I didn’t really know what good friends we were yet, because we hadn’t gotten to know each other,” he continued. “He was the quiet guy in the band, and Ed and Al were doing all the yakking about “Hey, what do you want to do?” Michael was just going along with the program, I didn’t pay much attention to him. But as years went by, I started realizing he was my kind of guy.”
“That’s when him and I really connected, I think — the first time we went to Cabo.”
