    I saw hagar in 97 In little rock ar. The band starded to play cabo wabo and hagar says "This is when shit was good." If you have best of vol. 1, watch the dreams video and notice how hagar has his back to Eddie. Just my 2 cents

    I've always felt that Ed and Sam's friendship wasn't as close as people think. I'm not saying they weren't friends but on the other side of the equation I don't think they were that close either.

    I mean if they are/were that close why haven't they spoken in over 6 years. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    I'm guessing that there is a TON of stuff that we don't know about our favorite band. There could be a huge book written about the band since 1996. Someday I'd like to know what has happened to these guys.

    I recall Sam saying that when he first joined up with the band he hung out with Eddie all the time, but the smoking started to mess with his voice. That was the time he started hanging with Mike (the only other nonsmoker in the band) and got close to him.

    Maybe Eddie got upset over that?

    not to rag on you Fanatical, but damn, that is a silly question.

    they haven't spoken in YEARS because they are pissed off about the past. mistakes were made, feelings were hurt, egos were crushed and people don't forget that shit.

    where i come from, my people will go to any length to avenge an insult or disrespectful act. in fact, this can go on for generations.

    I'll never forget when they were being interviewed by John Stewart on MTV back in '94 or '95 and Stewart actually noticed that they band wasn't as buddy, buddy as they were back in the 80s and I remember Alex kind of putting a spin on it but, not too long after, they were done.

    I thought that Sammy Hagar was a talented performer before he joined VH, but I used to wonder if his close personal acceptance and praise (heaped on him from other VH members when he took over from DLR) was perhaps from a band 'on the rebound' recovering from the loss of their lead singer? I mean, here were band members falling all over him while demeaning DLR. But the Sammy honeymoon eventually faded in time, as well.

    The interview that you are speaking about...hmmm...no...I don't think that it's the same one...

    Eddie and Sam were interviewed post 1992 at the MTV music awards...the same awards that Howard Stern did the infamous Fart Man gig...and shit hit the fan...I have it on tape...

    Sammy started talking shit about Stern...and I think it was to Kurt Loder...I'll have to find it and check it out...

    Anyways...Sammy started talking shit...and Ed fucking let him have it in front of the whole world to see...and then stopped talking completely...

    Sammy tried to make good...and Ed just stood there...looking pissed off...

    I don't think the relationship was anywhere near as good as people made it out to be...

    I remember a Rock Line show. I forget what year but, They were going to play finish what ya started live, but Eddie started out playing Sams riff, and Hagar was like uh, duh, cause he could't play Ed's part. So they stopped and Ed did the same thing again. I had a feeling Ed was saying I am THE guitarist you are NOT. Who knows what was going on.

    Ed and Sam started to not get along around '91.

    It just got worse from there on.

    By the time Sam released "Unboxed" in 1994, Ed had pretty much had it with Hagar.

    I don't think it's possible for two people to be close buddies for a long period of time without having conflicts. Especially when you're in a band and egos will definitely collide.

    Just like a girlfriend... You love it at first, but after a few years you get tired of being fucked over and over... No love lost really. My take is that too many people are putting way too much in the friendship that Sam and ed had. Beleive it or not, Dave and Ed were there once as well... [img]graemlins/devil.gif[/img]
