    Default redrocker.com says it all...

    Just went to redrocker.com and on the homepage you'll see something pretty cool, gave me goosebumps:

    "Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony from Van Halen
    Hau Thai-Tang, director of Ford Advanced Product Creation and SVT
    Ben Poore, Ford Division car group marketing manager"


    That's right man, From VAN HALEN....man, VH is giving us a ride once again, they'll be back...no doubt on this end...he wouldn't put that on his website if he was "done"

    You could read it two ways though:

    Sammy Hagar AND Michael Anthony from Van Halen

    or...

    Sammy Hagar (pictured WITH) Michael Anthony from Van Halen

    Think it says "from" to make it easier for the webmaster when he changes it to "former"!

    I don't think that says much. I just think they say that rather than saying 'Come see Sammy Hagar and some guy get new cars'....I think specifying Van Halen helps clarify who Michael Anthony is to some who might not know(yeah..I can't believe it either but there are those people out there)

    We all know Van Halen's site says Sammy Hagar...Sammy's site says Van Halen....at this point does this mean anything one way? I don't think so. All we can do is do what we always have done....keep our fingers crossed and hope for more!

    I think it is Sammy using the Van Halen name to pimp a solo show.

    They are from Van Halen.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    Pretty much the same reason why DLR asks his fake Eddie to play Eruption

    I'm not some Roth Army dude. I am a fan of both the original band and VH with Sammy. I even like the Sammy era more, but you have to call it like you see it.

    Sure, that is why Dave has a fake Eddie play Eruption and Dave totally lives off the Van Halen name, but that doesn't make it right for Sam to do it as well. It's even worse because Sam goes around telling everyone who will listen how much more he enjoys the Wabos than Van Halen.

    Hell, his nephew says that Sam and the Wabo's can out draw a tour of Dave, Al and Ed. OK, then why does Sam have to use the Van Halen name to promote his gigs.

    I don't see this line about Mike on his website as that hell of the promotion. After all they cover VH tunes there, why shouldn't he?

    Roth and Sammy owe their careers to EVH. Sammy wouldn't be playing casinos right now if it wasn't for VH fans and Dave wouldn't be playing state fairs. They were both lucky to be singing along side Eddie. Neither one of them has a solo back catalog that most music fans care about. Both are average catalogs. And its absolutely absured to say the Sammy would outdraw Roth/Eddie/Alex show. If that happened, the Sammy VH years would be a footnote to the VH legacy.

    MA owes his career to EVH as well. Even moreso than DLR and SH if you think about it.

    And, Sammy outdrawing the original VH? Please.

    To me Sammy and Mike have every right to use Van Halen on their resume`s as much as they want. They've earned it I think. Plus I think both of them will have pretty good carreers outside of VH. Sammy sells the hell out of shows here in the midwest.

    My bud in the industry was on a transportation bus (to and from the venue) with Sam and the Waboritas a couple of years back and listened to a lot of Sammy's chatter with his band. He said that Sam would refer to his time in VH or experiences with VH in a positive manner. Kind of as if it was something he used to do and had some fun doing it. Like someone talks about Disney World or something like that.

    Sam and Mike seem like guys who just seize the moment and opportunities and enjoy what they do and want to give back to the fans.
