    Default Hagar: VH Could Have Finished A New Album

    Sam is sounding more and more like the brothers told him that his services are no longer needed and he's trying to get as much press as possible before he goes on the tikki bar retirement tour. Bring on Roth and let's put the Hagar years to bed once and for all!



    SAMMY HAGAR Says VAN HALEN Could Have Finished A New Album - July 22, 2005

    Launch Radio Networks reports: VAN HALEN recorded three new songs for last year's greatest hits collection, "The Best of Both Worlds", but frontman Sammy Hagar says the group could have finished a whole album. Hagar told Launch that the hang-up was guitarist Edward Van Halen, who simply took too long to record his parts. "We tried to make a record, but, you know, it just was taking so long we only got three songs done, and not 'cause of me, I'll tell ya straight up," he said. "If anyone ever says anything like that I was the problem on that record, they're crazy. I had my stuff totally together. I went in, I knocked my stuff out, and then Eddie would take months to do a guitar solo or something. It was just way too drawn out. I can't work like that."

    With VAN HALEN now on hiatus, Hagar resumed touring this year as a solo act. His "The Tequila Made Me Do It" tour, during which he'll play with both MONTROSE and his own band, THE WABORITAS, begins August 6th in Clarkston, Michigan.

    Hagar and VAN HALEN bassist Michael Anthony continue to play together in another group, LOS TRES GUZANOS.

    Sammy, shut the hell up for once in your career. We all know Ed's a mess.

    You got yourself in the situation and could have got out before it got rolling.

    You knew about the ticket prices because it was your own manager that was involved.

    First it was "we just wanted to get out there and tour" and now it's a different story.

    You can't be believed and you really should just shut up and play.

    those lyrics were embarassing...at least the riffs were top notch (as usual)...no matter how long they may have taken to record

    You got to be kidding me right Sammy ! .... Try listening or even reading the lyrics to the last 3 tunes you recored with VH ....

    Had your shit together ... My Ass!

    And for those of you that don't think Sammy likes the sound of his own voice, right there those words he just said proves he will say almost anything to hear his pipes.

    Man I listened to this guy for over 25 years and I tell you the last 8 months he may as well be from Mars compared the Sammy I grew up listening to.

    Oh, for fuck's sake...

    I love 'em all but talk about the pot and the fuckin' kettle. I thought it took Sam MONTHS to come up with those 3 sets of lyrics...

    This crap is getting ridiculous...
    [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."
    - hatchetforce, 6.7.06

    I dont know what youre all bitching about. Sammy is only calling it as he saw it. in every interview he is going to get asked about the state of VH, Shit is has been 20+ years and Dave still gets asked about the VH issue. so he speaks his mind, so what.... its rock and roll, not physics....Sammy's lyrics were embarrasing? and as if any of you could do better....
    Sam, Dave,Gary... who cares. its all about what makes you feel good.

    It occurs to me that maybe Sammy should have taken a little more time with the lyrics. The music on the new tunes is just fine, the lyrics......ummmm!
    The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.
    -H.S.T

    This next part could really confuse things. Let's stay focused. #asis

    Just a thought, but I bet all these interviews that keep coming from Launch Networks every day could be from ONE interview?

    So if they would have just printed the WHOLE interview at once, we could just cry and moan about it once instead of stretched out over a week.

    I was thinking the same thing. This is like dying a slow painful death.
