Where’s the fat guy, Van Halen?

So I am kind of on hiatus from the blog as I figure out my new baby’s routine, but I couldn’t help but notice that Van Halen announced they were reuniting and going back on tour. Roth is back for $150 a seat. But on closer look, Michael Anthony is no longer bumpin bass lines and singing back-up. He was fired for unspecified reasons and Van Halen’s TEENAGE son is playing instead. Am I the only one that cares more about the bass player than David Lee Roth? That little tubby bearded, sweaty, roly-poly, long-haired, chubby bassist lit up VH when he would run across the stage and jump over Eddy. Am I unreasonable to think that this concert should be avoided? To quote the guy from Cotlers Liquors, “I smell bullshit!”
