    Woke up just in time to catch Dave & Sam on Howard Stern this morning. Dave was in the studio while Sam called in from CA. The whole thing lasted about 15-20 minutes or so. It was pretty good natured, with some jabs from both sides. Dave said that having him open a show would be like going from speedballs to a milkshake!

    One thing that stood out was the issue of Ed's health. Howard asked them if they've spoken to Ed lately and they both said no. Neither seems to believe that Ed's condition is all that serious anymore. Sam said that if he thought Ed was in big trouble he would give him a call. But he says Ed is not, so he is still waiting for an apology from him and Alex.

    Dave said he is opening his set with Hot For Teacher. Sam said what he is opening with, but I don't know the song and don't remember the name.

    Howard made a few jokes about the videotape Dave sent him. He said it looked like 3 hours of Dave doing kata. Dave mentioned nothing about the upcoming DVD.

    Dave also said that if Sam gets up with Mike Anthony for an end-of-show jam, Dave might join them. But otherwise, he still seems reluctant to entertain the idea.

    They mentioned that east coast dates are being talked about, but nothing is definite yet. So there is hope for us!

    That's all I remember for now. I'm sure someone will have a transcript or the audio soon enough.
    "There's a Japanese term called wabi-sabi, not wasabi, but wabi-sabi. It means an appreciation for the imperfect, the less than precision. The cowboy boots that you never polish because it's bad luck. That is completely wabi-sabi. Van Halen is that." - DLR 2002<br /><br />"Look! I can see their parachutes! They're ok..." - Tenshinhan, DragonBall Z

    I heard the interview and I was laughing the whole time....

    I wouldn't focus on the jabs so much(I would say they were more all in good fun, and also to build some hype for the tour, hell man I bust my friends balls all the time), too which there really weren't that many, in fact Dave and Sam had some kool things to say about each other. Some "journalist" called in and ragged on Dave about the Cherone joke(Sam said they could bring Gary out on stage to greet the fans), and Dave replied that the guy should relax and get past it, that it's only show-biz(implying it's only a joke), then the guy went on to ask Sam, How could he stand going on tour with Dave, saying that Dave would be a pain in the ass, even though this "journalist" claimed he never met Dave....(and had met all of the other members(past/current) of VH)
    Sammy went on to say that the "brothers" owe him an apology, and Dave and Sam both stated that Michael had nothing to do with anything that went down between Dave and VH, and Sam and VH.....

    Dave was very light-hearted, and Sam was too, but maybe because it was early in Cali(5:30 am), I thought Sammy seemed less light-hearted than I would have expected....(not sure, I guess the transcript will show what is up....)

    Oh yeah, Dave is going on Last at the opening show in Cleveland, the coin landed on Tails, so DLR said he would close.....Sam said if he won the toss, he said he would go on first anyway....plan your schedule.....

    Sam says this tour is all about shoving up the Van Halen's Ass... Dave says Bono asked him to do it, for the sake of world peace

    Sam said it was all about one big party... Dave said Sam's throwing the party, and I AM THE PARTY!

    Sam said he'd take the stage and sing some of Dave's songs with him, Dave said he'd never sing Sam's stuff. Sam said he couldn't be mad at Dave for that.

    Sam said that if neither of them was with Van Halen, then Van Halen is done. No one wants to hear a fourth singer. They all talked about Gary, and how he was a blip on the radar and Sam said something about not blaming Gary

    Sam said that he wants to be in Dave's dressing room before the show... one hell of a fu place to be, gotta be, with all the warm-ups and the banter and the wild shinanigans going on... couldn't imagine a more fun place to be

    It seems that when they first met, Sam was insisting on being the headliner. Has headlined ONLY since 1984, and wasn't in any kind of a mood to open for anyone. Howard asked about that. Dave denied that was true and Sam admitted it was. Then he (Sam) explained that he realized he needed to step down from his ego trip. Dave suggested to rotate opening and Sam thought it would be a good idea.

    They all recognized that Dave's ego is huge, so Sam said that he's gotta check his at the door, cuz he can. He'll have a few shots, roll with the punches and take things in stride, keeping HIS ego out of it.

    Sam said he wasn't afraid to follow ANYONE. Dave said, "Sam, you following ME is like going from a speedball to a milkshake."

    They talked about the potential for Mike Anthony playing with Sam. Sam admitted that he was in fact playing tonight live at the Filmore (sp) with Mike, Lars and Kirk Hammet (sp) ... Dave told Sam to bring him along on the tour... Sam said it would piss off the brothers, and Dave said, "Who cares! They have no control, they haven't done anything in a decade... who cares what they think! Bring him along."

    Sam talked about the two successful eras of Van Halen, and Dave said, "It's not that one era was better then the other, it's just that I'M BETTER THEN YOU, SAM!"

    Robin asked if Dave opened and the crowd went crazy, how'd Sammy feel if it went sorta quiet when he took the stage. Sam said that wouldn't happen, and if it did he'd take it up a notch... and besides, they're all drunk (SH and DLR said this in unison) by then, so no one will even notice!

    Sam says that he'll open with Shockadoobee. Dave said he's opening with Hot for Teacher. Howard said that was Sam was making a mistake, and that he needed to open with Van Halen songs or the crowd'd turn on him. Sam told Howard that He's the professional, and he'd decide what songs would work and what wouldn't

    Sam said that since he and Dave's birthdays are so close he wants Dave to play at his party, and he'll play for Dave at Dave's party. Dave said, "I don't want Sam, I want Britney Spears... I like the looks of her, and I'd play her like a unicorn."

    They talked about the brothers. Sam said they were cool to work with for 8 years and something happened. They owe him the apology, not the other way around. (I missed exactly what Sam said there)... but it was basically that things completely fell apart then.

    They both agreed that Ed and Alex just werent' cool.

    Howard asked about Ed's cancer. Both said that they haven't recently talked with him about it. Howard asked if Ed still had cancer, and they both declined knowing.

    Sam said that if it were really serious with Ed's health, then he'd be the first one down there giving Ed a hug and wishing him well, but it's not the time

    Dave said that if Ed IS well, then I'll be right there too, but to plant my foot up is [butt]

    They talked a bit about the DLR vs the Sammy era and who Howard most liked, and Dave said, "Howard's a little more Hot for Teacher then the Dreamer, Sam, come on!"

    When talking about VH, Dave started with his "lingo" and this is what he said, "Somewhere between the Grateful Dead, Led Zeppelin and the Limp Bizkits, is Sam and Dave."

    Both Sam and Howard crack up and Sam says something like, "See what Imean? This is what's so wild about Dave... WHAT DID HE JUST SAY? IT SOUNDED GREAT, but what did he just SAY?"

    Howard compared this tour as the next Osbournes, and Dave said, "Uh uh, no way, my kids would be a whole lot thinner. Besides, you wouldnt be able to edit the pixels and block out the stuff that's worse then dog doo in my house... It's all about faceless, gratuitous sex, cept now I know their names... all of their names."

    Sam signed off, and Dave stayed, so... they asked what Dave would wear. Howard kinda hinted to stay away from spandex... and suggested that the newer kids wear grunge look clothes, and Dave said something like, that's cuz they don't know who they are yet. I occupy my own space in my own time. Iwear what I wear." Talked about drawstring pants, army fatigue spandex and showing off Elvis.

    Howard closed by saying, "You're looking well, you're a far cry from the days of scoring pot in the park. You know how you could really screw Van Halen? Have your guys go on stage wearing Van Halen Masks!!" Dave said, "NO I'll screw Van Halen just by using the guys I'm using, they're young and hot and talented." Howard said, "You know how you really stick it to them? You STAY ON TOUR!"

    Then Howard said, NO NO! You do valerie on stage live! And Dave says, NO, I'll do a porn movie with Val and call it "Inappropriately Touched by an Angel."

    Oh, and Stern mentioned the video that we've been talking about! He said that Dave sent him some whacked out video that was about three hours long... and dave was doing martial arts moves... and it was weird music...

    and Dave said, Yea, and here we are talking about it in front of 3 million (or was it 30 million?)people!

    AND... Stern was talking earlier about the shape that both Dave and Sam were in. He said Dave looked great [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] He mentioned that Dave is an expert in martial arts, and that Sam was something like a professional boxer. Sammy laughed. Howard asked them if they were to get into a fight, who'd kick who's ass? Dave blurts out, "That's easy, he'd kick my ass for sure! Howard he's got like 40 pounds on me!" Sam cracked up and then they talked for a bit about egos and staying out of each others way to prevent problems...

    I like How Dave said, "for every Die-Hard Dave fan that thinks only DLR counts(paraphrasing), there are one, two people that think it should be the Sam/Dave tour instead of the Roth/Hagar tour"....that was kool

    I thought they were pretty kool to each other...

    I agree! It was fun listening to them laugh together at the same things, and each other. It killed me when Dave said that Sam would kick his ass! Sam's laughing was really genuine.

    I'm sure they're gonna have their moments, but you know, they're both thinking this through. There'll be more dates!

    From www.marksfriggin.com
    David Lee Roth (in studio) And Sammy Hagar (on phone) Talk Touring. 5/7/02. 8:45am
    Former Van Halen frontmen, David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar, are going to tour together this year so Howard wanted to talk to them. David Lee Roth came in the studio and Sammy Hagar called in to talk about this tour. Both of them have badmouthed each other on Howard's show in the past so Howard was playing clips all morning.
    Howard said Dave was happy as he always is when he comes in. Sam was on the phone from California so he was 3 hours behind on time so he was a bit sleepy. Dave was wired as he usually is and he wouldn't stop talking. The two of them were getting along pretty well when the interview started. It didn't take long before Dave started making little digs at Sammy but Sammy just sat back and took it.

    Dave told Howard that this tour is kind of an ''F-You'' to the guys in Van Halen just to prove that they both still have careers even though they were tossed out of the band. Sammy said that he's doing this to prove that he's just as good or better than Dave.

    Dave said that he's going to stick to Van Halen songs in his act but Sam said he's going to play some Van Halen stuff but most of his show will be his solo stuff.

    This tour was Dave's idea and he had his assistant contact Sam's manager. They later met in a meeting and got along just fine when they decided to forget about everything from the past. The agreed to do the tour and will even take the stage together if the fans want that. Sam said that he will even play guitar during a song for Dave if he wants.

    Howard reminded both Dave and Sam about what they've said about each other in the past when he replayed some old interviews. Sam said he regretted calling Dave a goofball when Howard asked him if he'd ever hook up with Dave to tour way back in 1997.

    Sam and Dave are going to flip flop opening and closing the show during this tour. Howard was set to do the first coin toss to find out who will open the first show. Both of them think that they should close these shows so they had to agree to flip flop them. While Howard was talking to them about all of this they were both making little digs at each other. Dave made a lot of jokes about Sam and Sam said he's going to do his best to blow Dave off the stage at these shows. Of course Dave thinks he's better than Sammy so he thinks he's going to blow Sam off the stage. They both agree that these will be great shows.

    Artie Lange spoke up and said that he's a huge Van Halen fan. He said if he goes to one of these shows and Dave opens up with a bunch of Van Halen songs, he's probably just going to leave when he's done. Howard tried to convince Sammy that he's going to need to play more Van Halen songs. Sam said he opens up with ''Shockadoobie'' while Dave opens up with ''Hot for Teacher.'' The guys all think that Sam needs to open up with something other than ''Shockadoobie.'' Someone even suggested that they both perform the same songs and have a competition. That's not going to happen though.

    Howard moved on to do the big coin toss to decide who will open or close the first show on the tour. Sam took heads while Dave got tails. Howard took the coin and flipped it and got tails. Dave won the toss and said he's going to headline the first night. Sam said no one is ''headlining'' the show. One band opens and one closes the show. Dave gets to close that first show. After that they'll start flip-flopping back and forth. The first show of 'The Song for Song Tour' takes place in Cleveland, Ohio on May 29th.

    The way the guys were going at each other makes it sound like this tour may not last long. Howard and Robin want to see them if they make it to New York though... if they last that long working together.

    Howard took a few phone calls for the guys after Sammy threatened to get off the phone. Sam thought for sure that Howard was going to have someone on the phone bashing him. The first caller was a Sammy fan though. A few callers asked some questions and didn't get too nasty when they called in. Howard wrapped up his call with Sam after the fans called in. He spent a few more minutes with Dave and then wrapped it up with him too. Dave was still making digs at Sam so it's sounding more and more like they're not going to be able to get along during this tour.

    For more information on Dave and Sam you can visit their respective web sites... DavidLeeRoth.com for Dave and RedRocker.com for Sammy.
