    VH related...

    Another band that I know you've been a long time fan of this guy and I just love him to death and that's Sammy Hagar.
    Love Sammy Hagar.

    He's one of the most charismatic front men.
    He's one of the greatest ever. He's great in his show, that whole tour I've seen it, it's great. Hopefully, I know that he and Dave want to run with Van Halen again with some summer tour so I hope that happens.

    Do you think it's realistic for both of them to do a show?
    I know that it is. I don't think that - it is. They will definitely do it. It's really funny you have an exclusive on that. I spoke to Sammy and Irving Azoff the manager and I think under the right conditions they would definitely do it.

    It's just convincing one Eddie Van Halen?
    Oh I think its convincing Alex Van Halen.

    Oh really?
    I think to some extent. I hope it happens, it would be awesome. Those brothers are awesome. I love them. They are one of the greatest music bands ever. Sammy and Dave would do it.

    What about all this press between Sam & Dave, is it just bullshit to hype up the competition angle?
    Well there is severe competition between the two of them absolutely.



    Sometimes that kind of atmosphere breeds greatness.
    I think so; I think it breeds greatness. There was one leg and now they're doing a second leg right so how bad could it be.

    Exactly!
    It can't be that bad. That would be awesome if they did a tour next summer or the one after.

    I'd fly to the States to see that.
    Yes you would definitely want to for that.

    I saw them with Sammy in '93 and I saw them with Gary in '98.
    It's funny Sammy Hagar has told me for many years that he always wanted to do a tour with David Lee Roth. Yes he really did, I have to give him credit. He told me that for 6 or 7 years. Yes that's true he's always wanted to do one tour with Dave.

    What a greatest hit set that would be.
    Yep. I think so. This is what he's always told me but I can't account for how it would happen.

    I think nothing would bring the fans together more than that.
    He's all for it.

    In your opinion do you think they would record an album that way?
    I don't know the answer to that.
    I think a lot of the bands, if the touring is good or if there is an MTV unplugged for VH1. I guess if they enjoy the experience they might do it. The live business is so much more important than the recorded business. I think the tour would be the focus.

    A lot of money to be made there.
    A lot of money.

    Were you involved at all with the band and the pseudo reunion with David a couple of years back that never got off the ground?
    No I wasn't actually and I'm sort of glad I wasn't at the time.
    That was bizarre. No I was not. I mean I love David Lee Roth and I really like the brothers, it's just one of those things I hope it happens. I mean I've only had good experiences with all of them.

    Fantastic. I'm really pleased to hear that.
    Yeah anything I could do I would try to do it.

    The Planet Us project is an interesting angle.
    Yeah I think so, but it's a whole different thing than having David in Van Halen. The Planet Us is a real cool thing. That's a whole different story that's an artistic thing. I'd like to do it, I'm interested in the music but it's just not like having Van Halen.

    It'll just be a project?
    Yes.

    Will they record an album or do a tour?
    I don't know yet. I guess I'll talk to him [Sammy] when he gets off the tour. I hope so.

    So Alex is the hold up, eh?
    Very intersting.

    Thanks for posting that part of the interview. This guy seems pretty confident that VH could tour with both DLR and SH doing the vocals. I wonder what is up with Alex?

    Damn, that guy is kinda scatterbrained isn't he? Seemed disjointed and hard to follow in places.

    Ok, so.....Everybody march to Alex Van Halens house! [img]graemlins/irked.gif[/img]

    I thought Al had money troubles. You would think he would want/need to do a reunion.

    I read to the whole thing, but I'm confused as to when the interview actually took place, and how relevant it is now.

    Somebody care to comment on that?

    I think so; I think it breeds greatness. There was one leg and now they're doing a second leg right so how bad could it be.
    Sounds like it was sometime before or during the second leg of the Sam & Dave tour.

    Was that some form of annoucement?

    "They will definitely do it. You have an exclusive on that. I spoke to Sammy and Irving Azoff"

    Sounds like the guy is 100% sure that there will be a 2003 VH Reunion tour.

    Could be very big news. [img]graemlins/bounce.gif[/img]
