Brush with greatness
Just after I came back from my fabulous vacation I went to the Huntington Beach street fair and I saw a very small sign that announced former Van Halen bass player/keyboard player Michael Anthony was going to be making a guest appearance at one of the shops on Main Street later on in the week.
I made a valiant effort to get to the shop as early as possible so that I wouldn't have to stand in a line to get to meet this rock and roll icon.
I'm sorry to announce that when I got there...he and I were the only ones in the store who didn't work there.
We talked a little bit about him playing with Sammy Hagar these days and then he had to excuse him self because his wife had called him on his blackberry. I'm kinda glad she called. I had run out of things to say.
He was as sweet and nice as he could possibly be. He even offered me a shot of Jack Daniels. Out of a dirty shot glass.
Contrary to the intoxicated look on my face in these pictures...I declined the Jack Daniels which now I regret. How many times am I going to get the opportunity to throw back shots with a rock star?
