    Since us Dave heads just don't get it, all you Sammy lovers tell me what was kind of agreed upon before the beginning of the tour. I thought they had agreed to not totally trash each other. Dave, for the most part, has kept his mouth shut, unless talking directly to Sammy. I am providing the link as well as copying and pasting the part of the article that shows Sam's classiness.

    http://www.newsok.com/cgi-bin/show_a...&TP=getarticle

    As for Roth, Hagar says, "Believe me, this guy is not your average bear, OK? He's an egomaniac, he is in fantasyland, really believes he's still the rock god of all times, and it's like he's in complete denial.

    "His career has really been on a bumpy road. I don't wanna make fun of the guy, but I'll tell ya, man, he couldn't get a tour. Nobody would even book him. That's why he came to me."

    Hagar, 54, boasts that his show is only 50 percent Van Halen material, while the rest is drawn from his solo career before and after Van Halen, including songs from his early days in Montrose.

    Roth, 46, reportedly drops one solo tune, "Yankee Rose," into an otherwise all-Van Halen hit parade.

    Hagar says he sometimes watches his rival from the wings for 10 or 15 minutes, but that's "about all I can handle, quite honestly. But I'm goin', 'Look at this guy. It's (bleeping) entertainment, you know? He still dresses exactly like he was in 1982. ... It's worth seein'."

    Hagar says the two managed to get along -- the "three or four times" they've talked -- on the tour, but Roth puts on airs that rankle the macho man in red.

    "Dave, he's like all into his star mode at all times -- 'Hi, Sam, and how are you?' And I'm goin', 'Hey, Dave, loosen up a little bit, have a drink?' ... Dave has even said himself, 'Nothing a couple of shots of Cabo Wabo can't cure.'"

    Woops. There's some more of that shameless commercialism Roth mentioned.

    Unfortunately, Roth couldn't be reached for retorts to all Hagar's nasty remarks. Messages to Roth's tour publicist, Libby Henry, brought no response until I finally caught her on Wednesday.

    "I don't have you on my list, but he hasn't been doing them (interviews) anyway," she said. "We did some for the beginning of the tour. We're working out some new times now, but he hasn't gotten back into the groove of doing them."

    And Hagar says he won't be getting back in the groove with Roth. When this tour ends, Roth can take a flying "Jump" as far has he's concerned.

    "He's not cool," Hagar insists. "He doesn't wanna do a duet with me. He doesn't want me coming anywhere near his stage when he's out there. He wants to be the only shiny object on that stage. He just doesn't want any competition in his life, but I love jammin'."

    You are the man there Sam. Total class [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Why do you guys care so much what Sam says about Dave? If Sam is so inconsequential as most of you make him seem, why do you care at all?

    BTW, Dave has never refrained from talking shit.

    I do not care that much really. I was just making the point to all the Sam heads that Sam has been talking shit all during this tour not to Dave's face, but to everyone else he can get to listen. What has Dave said that was not either to Sam's face or in an interview while Sam was on the phone. Really, psot a link to any interview that DAve has bad mouthed Sam after this tour has started and I will eat crow. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    AFTER the tour started? Well we can't because Dave won't do ANY interviews about anything anymore.

    I thought Roth stopped at several radio stations along the way during the tour...Ok, well, that makes it ok that Sam slams Dave because Dave doesn't do interviews. Yeah, that makes sense. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    When asked why Gary Cherone, the other former Van Halen singer, is not on the bill, Roth joked that the former Extreme frontman was busy doing "The Vagina Monologues."

    Now that's classy.

    Executioner - Easy killer, I could careless either way, just making a freaking statement. Sam and Dave are both capable of being dicks, and they have been in the past and now. For guys that don't like Sam, you sure spend a lot of time looking for articles about him. I never do, his act bores me as does DLR's tired game.

    Funny how soon Daveheads forget and its amazing that its ok to post ripping Sam, calling classless and a piece of shit (not this thread , but another one), but don't you dare rip Roth, where are all the fairminded Roth fans who bitch when there guy gets ripped unfairly, gimme a break, wasnt it Daveheads who when Dave and his buddy Howard Stern goofed on Sam, said "its just promotion" and even better "thats just how Dave is" , by the way, why wont Dave jam with either Sam or Mikey, hmmmmmmm, and why hasnt Dave worked with anyone of his own stature since Vai? Vai even wasnt the name he is now, no Dave prefers Tribute musicians and why is that? Its simple, like Sam said, Dave wants to be the only shining light, otherwise why not jam with Mikey or Sam? Why not work with someone who can push him to a higher level, like Eddie did, nope we get the BBQ VHS tape, maybe Dave is saving the really good stuff [img]graemlins/devil.gif[/img]

    Ok you guys are missing the point completely. YES, Dave has said some horribly ridiculous things in the past and the Vagina monilogues was very uncalled for. I guess what I was getting at was Sam has been running his mouth all this time as well. Actually I didn't spend any time looking for the article...It actually came to me. yahoo groups forum email thingy. So, anyhow,

    Brett, you are a great guy, and are much more dedicated to VH than most of us here, so dont take anythign I said as personal, I was just trying to make the point about Sam running his mouth to everyone, BUT Roth, when they had agreed (both of them) that what was in the past, was to be left there. Am I able to close this bad boy?

    My fault here, but I think it is the analogy that goes something like "we circled the wagons and shot inward".

    It is pretty sad when the fans start ripping on each other, when all we really want is to hear some kick ass "Rock and Roll"

    By the way, Roth rules [img]graemlins/drunk.gif[/img]

    Personally..........I think Sam and Dave both talk shit about each right now to sell the tour.

    Dave did an interview with a local newspaper before the show and ripped on Sammy. I think it's all good. They are both making money and that's the whole point.

    About the shameless commercialism by Sammy....if you had something to sell, wouldn't you mention it as much as possible? Sometimes it does get old....but I can live with it. I'm sure if Dave had his own brand of liquor, he would be plugging away too.
