    This is starting to look like the neverending story fellas, more like deja vu than anything else. Let's think for a second here... Eddie,Alex,Mike are all silent since Gary left. Dave hasn't said a word yet(???)
    Sam is badmouthing the band again...He has been doing that since '95..Nothing new here.
    But how come every time that he has a new album to come out... He brings the boys in every interview he do. COINCIDENCE.. I think not.
    And always to say something either hurtful or just in spite.

    I'll be the one to tell you that I'm tired of this He said, She said bit. MTV put fuel in the fire, And Sammy just pour some more.
    Since when Sam has become this torn in the side of Edward and the band.
    I really don't understand at all some of the action this guy take and the judgement he has.

    Van Halen has been my favorite band since I was 10, I'm 28 now and Van Halen to me means
    Fun, good music and good times...
    Sam's comments and the MTV thing take the fun out of what music is really about. It saddens me that people like that... don't realize how many people they hurt when they say and try to put down Bands or personalities that in some point in your life you look up too, music that help you get out of a depression or remembering those good old days of youth.

    I know this isn't a topic that many of you share but I needed to say something. With all that's been going on... It's time to recap.
    Thanks and have a good day

    These clips of Sammy may be at least a year old, not recent.

    Plus, VH was a part of Sammys' life for 10 years, and I feel like he's got the right to discuss VH. Plus, the interviewers probably bring up Van Halen before Sammy does.

    I know what you mean... but the problem that I have is with Sam of the last 3 years... Since the firing/quitting the band scenario.
    In every interview his inconsistent and sometimes he has been quite harsh on the band.
    That's mostly my point.

    P.S. I don't hate Sammy... I just hate the way he handles the situation in public.

    Hmmm, I think that Sammy has pretty much taken the high road most of the time. Check out that clip of Sammy on the X show. He says they VH years were great, they just ended poorly. And when the host tries to get him to say Eddie is an asshole, Sammy says he isn't and says that Eddie is a special guitar player. The worst he says is that Eddie isn't a very social guy.

    I don't think Sammy's badmouthing again....though it appears some people are trying to get him to(latest interview)/or cutting up old interviews to make it seem so.....
    I don't take this band so serious that I get hurt feelings/angry by what someone says.....though I do feel bad knowing that
    they probably feel a little pinch or two
    when they come here and read the quite public posts and what different fans feel about them.........cause it's not all good

    All of would like to think that if we were in Sammy's or Dave's shoes we'd all be classy about it. Obviously in Sammy's mind, he felt he was shafted and I'm not so sure that isn't true. I don't like that it's come to that but such is human nature.

    i'd love to be a fly on the wall if Sammy and Dave ever got together to tell each other their sides of their stories. Sammy has said he would love to talk to Dave about it. Just don't think it will happen since Dave is back now. No reason for Dave to bring it up anymore. Let the music do the talking.
