    Can't believe nobody has posted this yet. Apparently Sammy thinks it's all done, according to Blabbermouth:

    SAMMY HAGAR: VAN HALEN Is Over For Good! - July 11, 2002

    Former VAN HALEN frontman Sammy Hagar revealed several interesting items about VAN HALEN's comeback plans during a recent interview with reporter Patrick Berkery of the Philadelphia Inquirer. Among the revelations that are due to be detailed in the article which is set to be published on August 16th are the following:

    **VAN HALEN is over for good, according to Sam. VAN HALEN bassist Michael Anthony (who's been showing up at a lot of Hagar's recent tour dates) hasn't spoken with the VH brothers since February and they haven't recorded any music, discussed a singer or anything of the sort since last year. Drummer Alex Van Halen sits on the Internet all day (and smokes), while Eddie Van Halen sits in his house and does nothing all day (and smokes). The way Sam sees it, no label, no management, no singer=no band.

    **The recent David Lee Roth/VAN HALEN reconciliation rumors: Dave was indeed writing and recording with the band circa 2000. Very quietly, things were broken off because, according to Sammy (according to Michael Anthony), Dave's voice was pretty shot and Eddie was growing incredibly frustrated. Eddie was very intent on writing "radio-friendly" rock, and Dave was into his usual "non sequitur" rock, says Sam. Hence, Dave's proposal to Sammy (again, according to Sammy) to do this tour.

    **Dave Lee Roth has taken seven bodyguards with him on his current tour with Hagar.

    **VH, Roth and Sammy were offered $50 million to do two shows in Las Vegas in 2001 for a big pay-per-view deal, the whole shebang. Sammy says they all turned it down immediately except Roth. He also says a whole tour with all parties was also proposed by the same person (a Las Vegas businessman) for dollars that would make your eyes pop out.


    Doesn't sound good...

    So that's what Alex has been doing with his time. I wonder if he reads any of our posts? Bottomline is a very frustrating time to be a Van Halen fan. We haven't had any solid good news in so long. I just pray Alex and Eddie are okay. They sound down right depressed and just hanging around. It truly doesn't sound like their style. I am so confused. What is going on here??

    until vh says its over it aint over. remember eddie said it is time to get back to the music, mike did talk to eddie about a month ago, i think it was just before eddie told everyone he got a clean bill of health. if you also remember it was said that eddie and alex jam just about everyday.
    also remember eddie has been going thru this split from val since oct 2001 and he also was dealing with the cancer he had to.
    so i'm sure we will hear from vh again.
    van halen shall return. what you think is nothing might be something after all.

    I'm just wondering why Bruce Lee Roth would need 7 bodyguards? To share all the womens with?

    Alex most likely downloads porn all day. [img]graemlins/sssh.gif[/img]

    Since they haven't spoken since February, no one really knows what there doing.

    It's possible MA is just out of the loop. Or maybe Sam's right. However, telling people VH is over works to his benefit. If people think its over they will be more likely to go see this tour.

    But he may be right [img]graemlins/cry.gif[/img]

    "Bruce Lee Roth" has always had about 7 bodyguards with Him....even in VanHalen! Sometimes he even used Midgets1 (it's a little thing called humor) And as far as bodyguards go.....Bruce Lee started using them too after his fame in Hong Kong escalated, that way weirdo's wouldn't start fights with him all the time. Ali had Bodyguards, so does Tyson and so does Lennox Lewis! And the last time Sammy had a tour here in San Jose.....HE HAD BODYGUARDS!!!!

    So don't let Sammy sell You this bill of goods that Roth is so scared of him (scared he might eat him maybe) And from what most of the reviews say Roth's Voice has been holding up well on the Tour, so maybe Sammy is feeling the heat of Roth on his ass on Tour. (Roth is just playing, sam needs all the guest stars) so now that he isn't within reach of Dave, he's man enough to open his mouth. I noticed he hasn't been to manly when Roth is standing next to him!.....hmmmmm.

    Wasn't Sammy going to have his Girl Bass player hit Roth at one point?

    And How nice that he says that Mike told him all of this......I guess he decided Mike needed Eddie pissed off at him and decided to help him out.

    Sammy's a pisser!
