    Why is it so many people slam Sammy for commenting on the current situation with Van Halen?

    I'm sure nobody more than Sammy is tired of fielding endless questions about what's goin' on. I'm positive most interviewers want to talk nothin' else with him.

    Put it this way. If anyone of you out there had a chance to sit down and interview Sammy Hagar, 99.9% of your questions would be about Van Halen.

    Yeah! he could just say..."no comment" but people would still find a way to dump on him.

    I'm not a Sammy fan, but I totally agree with you. Looking from his side, it must totally suck trying to promote a new solo album when everyone wants to talk about VH.

    And hell, people are still all bent out of shape about his comments from a few weeks back that keep getting recycled.

    Wonder what people would be saying if Sammy had said, "Hey man, my sources tell me Dave is IN!"

    If I'm not mistaking when Sammy was on Howard Stern months back, he said at that time his sources told him that Dave was back with the band. I don't remember anyone dumpin' on him for givin' us that positive news. He's in a no-win situation.

    I agree with the last two posts. It's not Sammy talking about VH that people are upset about, it's what he's saying. If Sammy was saying that everything with VH and Dave was going great people would be thanking him for commenting on Van Halen.

    100% correct Glenn.

    People are "shooting the Messenger" and if they prefer Dave over Sammy they lace into him even more....

    I agree with what DDL and Glenn said.
    I also think it's great that Sammy answers questions about VH. At least he is saying something, unlike VH who haven't said a thing in I don't know how long.

    It's definitely not fair to him--after all, he's been out of the band for about four or five years now. He's a solo artist now...it's a shame people are firing all these questions and blaming him for anything remotely negative about the VH situation.

    Agreed, YankeeRose--it's pretty nice of Sammy to at least say something. The thing is--what are his sources? Is he getting stuff from the VH camp? Does he have insiders of his own? Is he making it up to promote the album?

    That's the kicker...

    Right Now, teenybopper trash doesn't stand a chance.
    Right Now, MTV has no idea what happens when rabid Van Halen fans have their favorite band insulted.
    Soon Enough, they'll learn the hard way.

    Sammy totally rocks! I saw him at the Hard Rock Live in Orlando and let me tell you this man can put on a show. I think he was great in Van Halen and feel if not Roth in VH then Sammy.

    I'm not sure if I've seen anyone actually slamming Sammy for commenting on the current Van HALEN situation. However, the idea of quoting Sammy as a reliable source on the band's curerent status is ridiculous.

    At the Sundance film festival in Utah last winter, Sammy said that he was not in the band, and had not spoke to Eddie, Alex, or Mikey since Sepetember of 1996, at a funeral for their lawyer's wife. That should have been his final word on the subject, and it should have been the last time he was asked the question. Right now, there is no logical reason to believe that Sammy Hagar has any more concrete knowledge about the Van HALEN reunion than any of us do. If Sammy is blabbing rumors around as fact, then he, like anyone else, would deserve to take some shit for doing so.

    I've heard and seen photos of Sammy and Michael Anthony still jamming together on occasion at Cabo Wabo. In fact on Sammy's web site I saw photos of them on stage celebrating Sammy's last birthday bash. So, I guess at least those two still consider themselves buds! This may give Sammy a little insight to the current goings on in the band.

    I wish Sammy would talk more about Van Halen.

    I wish everyone would.

    And what's up with Michael Anthony jamming with Sammy recently?

    This isn't true - is it?

    I saw the photos and played a clip of video from Sammy's last Birthday Bash and lo and behold there was Michael Anthony on stage with the Red Rocker jamming away. I would assume they're still buds even though the Van Halen brothers aren't on friendly terms with Sammy. I saw these photos and clips from Sammy's web site.
