    Default Hagar on Eddie Van Halen: We're not as Friendly as I would've wanted to be

    HAGAR On EDDIE VAN HALEN: We're 'Not As Friendly As I Would've Wanted To Be' - May 2, 2005 According to ABC ePrep, VAN HALEN singer Sammy Hagar says that while he and guitarist Eddie Van Halen patched up the rift between them, they're "not as friendly as I would've wanted to be." Still, as Hagar told the New York Daily News, the members of VAN HALEN got along well on their reunion tour last year "until the end, when we were getting on each other's nerves. There was no real leader, so we started doing the same show every night. There was no spontaneity, and that got to me." That's not likely to be the case with Hagar's current tour with his band THE WABOS. Hagar says his show will be classic Hagar, "but I'm going to add a few new things and the show will be cooking."

    Hagar is friends with celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse, and he says he's going to appear on Lagasse's Food Network show on May 17.

    Here are Hagar's tour dates, according to Pollstar:

    May 06 - Atlantic City, NJ @ Borgata Hotel/Casino
    May 07 - Mashantucket, CT @ Foxwoods Casino
    May 10 - Green Bay, WI @ Oneida Casino
    May 12 - Detroit, MI @ Fox Theatre
    May 13 - Rosemont, IL @ Rosemont Theatre
    May 14 - Maryland Heights, MO @ UMB Bank Pavilion
    Aug. 13 - Lake Tahoe, NV @ Harrah's Tahoe

    My only real question is, if there wasn't a real leader, why didn't Sam step up to the plate? Maybe he did and his ideas were shot down. Who knows.

    I also think it was a bad idea for them to not sit down and discuss their past issues. Sometimes it's good to get that stuff out in the open.

    Good find, Paw. Things were tense, maybe next time (hopefully) - things will be more loose. Until then, damn you who are getting to party with Sam and Co.!!!
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    I don't see this as a bad thing. They "got along well" as he said. That's good enough for me. People would start to bug me too, after seeing them every night for 4-5 months straight.

    Whatever, Sam can go back to the Margaritaville Band and make room for a real leader...DLR! Just give Eddie a glazed donut and bottle of anything and he'll go along with it.

    LOL, that didn't take long to somehow make Sam the bad guy and bring up Dave.

    All this article says is that he wanted him and Ed to be closer as friends and somehow that is twisted into Sam talking shit about VH? But if he didn't talk about VH at all, then he's just whoring his tequila and his club.

    Funny...predictable, but funny.

    It bears repeating...

    "Something tells me that after the nuclear holocaust, there'll be twinkies, cockroaches, and a Dave vs. Sammy argument going on somewhere". - Han Valen, 6/11/04

    [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]


    "20 minutes (late to work)? Shit. Last year I woke up three weeks too late.
    My advice is to go for the alien abduction story. Look bemused, dishevelled and on the verge of tears as you recount your story of intrusive and degrading medical tests.
    Worked for me anyway. I still have colleagues asking me what it is like to fuck a green womanoid with seventeen breasts.
    Alternatively just walk in and inform everyone that alcoholism is indeed a disease and that they should be less judgemental and perhaps a little more supportive."
    - graeme on the addiction to this place.

    "something tells me that after the nuclear holocaust, there'll be twinkies, cockroaches, and a dave vs. sammy argument going on somewhere".
    - han valen, 6.11.04

    "in my best "saw" scary movie voice: "oh, yes, there will be beagles."

    Fuck Hagar? More like fuck Eddie. Sammy actually wants to continue making music and doing what he loves to do in life. Sammy actually has happiness in his life, where as Eddie has so much to live for, including a very talented son, but still can't find happiness in his life and instead desides to piss it all away via booze. I'm very happy for Sam. I just hope Eddie desides to wise up before it's too late. The guy has so much to live for, but he doesn't seem to realize it.

    Yeah sucka, I read somewhere when Sam reunited that they (Ed and Sam) just agreed to disagree about the past.
