Anthony wrote nothing and may not have even played on 84 (thought he did but can't be certain) but their contract stated everything would be split evenly between the four regardless of what they contributed in the studio and had been that way since the debut. They outright screwed him after 84 was released and was selling by the boatload. Despicable!
Van Halen is, was and always will be Roth on the microphone, Eddie as only Eddie can play and Michael Anthony doing backing vocals. Alex Van Halen never wrote a single note and is the only replaceable component in VH so it makes no sense to me that he should have kept his slice of the pie but for his last name being Van Halen. Dicks!
