    Default New Sammy Interview

    I found this one at sammyhagar.net, and found it very interesting:

    Douglas Maher - All Headline News Staff Reporter

    Los Angeles, CA (AHN) - Red Rocker Sammy Hagar spoke to "Metal Express Radio" recently and had a few choice words about the Van Halen tour of 2004 which saw the band reunite for the first time in 8 years with Hagar.

    He says, "We tried to do an album. We only got three songs done. It took four months to do three songs. So I was saying, 'Let's go out and play for the people before this whole thing ends. Because if you remember right, they tried to do an album with Gary Cherone for the second record and that didn't finish and then they tried to do a record with David Lee Roth three times, and they never got it done."

    The three completed songs eventually wound up on the 2-disc set "Best of Both Worlds", which was certified platinum late last year.

    Haggar adds, "As a person who wanted to go out and play for the people, I said, 'Let's stop recording, and let's go out on the road while we still can.' And I think it was a smart move. The management was into that as well. We had shows on sale. We pretty much had to go out and do some shows. That's why we only did three songs."

    The ending of the 80-date tour was filled with an intoxicated Eddie Van Halen breaking his guitar as portions flew into the crowd and going on what appeared to be a rage of sorts alarming concert goers. Van Halen had recently beat cancer of the tongue as well as hip replacement surgery and gone through a divorce from wife of 20 years, Valerie Bertinelli. sources say he had hit an emotional lowpoint in his life, smoking cigarettes and drank throughout the tour.

    Haggar says, "The last show with Van Halen was a disaster, it was a horrible experience. We had to be pushed off the stage separately, and me taking this way, and Eddie taking this way, and Alex and Michael down the middle, because we were ready to go to blows, it was that bad. So that was horrible. The rest of the tour wasn't that bad. But at the endÖ I don't know. Something got crazy."

    Do you think this is yet another end for Van Hagar? say it aint so
