David Lee Roth Reportedly Donated $10,000 To Ex-Van Halen Bassist Michael Anthony's Charity

May 4, 2017

Although former Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony is no longer playing with the band, a kind gesture from Van Halen vocalist David Lee Roth did briefly reconnect the two former bandmates.

A few weeks back, Michael Anthony's newborn grandson, Rex, died due to a very rare heart condition that left him and his family stricken with grief. Anthony has since joined up with WALK L.A., a walk to benefit the Los Angeles Children's Hospital on June 17th, 2017.

Anthony set up a fundraising page in memory of his grandson, calling it "Rex and the Heart Beaters," and on May 3rd, 2017, it was revealed that $10,000 was donated by allegedly none other than David Lee Roth. It's not 100% confirmed that Roth is indeed the generous donor, leaving that it could just be a very wealthy prankster, but sources suggest that Anthony's brother left a "Thank You" message on his facebook page to Roth.
