    Short Sammy Interview on Chicago Radio

    So Steve Dahl (105.9 WCKG Chicago) is in Cabo this week and I happen to turn on his show as Sammy gets on the air. It was maybe a 5 minute or so interview, really quick, but there were a few details. He wasn't promoting anything (surprise) just takin questions from listeners in the crowd that went to Cabo with Steve, and they asked the dumbest fuckin questions, mostly about the tequila "Where does he get the barrels to age the tequila?" "What is the recipe for the Anejo" (It's all Blanco tequila, the different brands are only different by age not recipe)

    ANYWAY, so finally someone asks how close he is to VH and Sam said he talks to Mike daily but hasn't talked to Ed since the VH tour ended. He said the same old thing about the tour not ending the way he would have liked and that if Ed wants to call he would gladly talk to him. Steve said that it was sad the way Ed is now and Sam agreed, they didn't go into it any deeper than that, he just wished things were better. No mention of Ed being drunk or anything, he pretty much avoided talking about any of it.

    Then Steve mentioned Dave and Sam said that the rivalry between them is more press than reality. He said they take thier shots at each other in the press but it's more out of fun than any kind of hatred. All show biz. Steve told Sam that he went to grammar school with Dave and that he used to beat up Dave in school because Dave used to pick on this younger kid and Steve would always protect the kid from Dave. It was kinda funny, and then Steve said that Dave would come back every day and keep picking on the kid and Steve would keep beating him up and it would just keep happening. LOL (Dave's been on Steve's show before and they talked about being in grammer school together, but I don't remember any stories of them fighting?)

    Then comes the part that answers the questions brought up in Mikey's new blurb.....the new Wabo album is almost done, he said that 9 songs are done, they are off for Thanksgiving and then they do 3 more. It comes out next year and it's called "Livin it Up" and they tour next summer....WITH Mike. The show will start with a Wabo set, then "the Other Half" with Mike and they will do Van Hagar and CVH with Mike on vocals, then they all (Wabos, Mikey and whoever else is there) come out at the end of the show and jam together.

    They also talked about how the Cabo Wabo Cantina was started and all that, but nothing we haven't heard a million times already....that was about it.

    Thanks for the post Greenpaw. Can't wait til Sammy's cd comes out. I wish he would just call Ed. Only problem is I don't think he wants to.

    Great recap and some interesting tidbits on what the immediate future holds (and does not hold).

    Nice work!

    Sam didn't sound like he was holding his breath waiting on Ed's call


    Edit- OK, my memory is fried, it had to more than 5 minutes, maybe a half hour w/commercials.....anyway I just remembered another funny thing he said, I guess when they drew up the original plans for the Cabo Wabo Cantina, he had a Spinal Tap-Stonehenge moment. Sammy laid out the plans in American measurements (feet and inches and all that) but they built it in METERS, so it turned out way bigger than what he originally planned LOL

    Is Mike playing on the new Wabo album?

    Those are gonna be some long sets.

    I'm hip to that jazz.

    And Mikey, if you're readin' this, way cool that you're gonna sing some CVH. Might I suggest some off the wall tracks rather than your standard RWTD/YRGM/SGMAD anthems? So This is Love? Fools? The Full Bug? Just some food for thought.

    And Sam, when pulling out the Van Hagar oldies during The Other Half, you were on the right track with gems like 5150. Summer Nights, Mine all Mine, Sucker in a 3 Piece, Don't Tell Me, Judgment Day....give the people what they want.

    Thanks, Paw!
    Sammy 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"

    Now the new David-Lee-Roth-Van Halen album, “Tokyo Dome In Concert,” is available for purchase, and it’s super, super, super, super, super, super, crazy bad. - Doug Elfman

    Default BTW - Steve Dahl is the 1979 "Disco Demolition" DJ

    He wasn't clear on that, just that when they hit the road, Mike will be there. I can't imagine he won't play or sing on the album in some form?



    Here's a weblog of the appearance from Steve's site. Looks like I missed some of it nothing major though.

    In this web log, they make it seem like Sammy doesn't like NYC, but that's not how it sounded to me, he was just pokin fun at the East Coast because they don't have the "party-beach" vibe and he can't dress like he normally does. Whatever Sam. LOL

    (BTW, "Jimmy Mac" is the husband Steve's co-host Wendy, not Jim McMahon of the 1985 Chicago Bears ):



    2:35 Sammy Hagar stops by. Sammy came in via ATV on the beach. He already went through his morning run, so he was ready for the ATV. Has he seen Steve walking? He kind of looks like a turtle.

    2:36 Sammy has been in Los Cabos for a couple of months now. Sammy inquires about Mexican porn? Steve has a DVD player in his room and was looking to score some Mexican porn.

    2:37 There's a pub crawl happening on Wednesday, and they will definitely be stopping by Cabo Wabo. Sammy is going off to Guadelajara tomorrow.

    2:39 Apple Vacations hooked up the listeners with trips. Somebody won a trip when Steve played Mas Tequila.

    2:40 Sammy gives the listeners some drinking advice. Do a couple of shots, take it easy, and then go for the margaritas. Take your time, that way you'll still be standing at two. Sammy's Cabo Wabo tequila is doing pretty well; it's become the #2 tequila in America.

    2:51 The house band from Cabo Wabo is at the broadcast. Steve met Sammy in the 80's. The might have played Celebrity Jeopardy together. Sammy thinks the good thing about Cabo is that everyone is sweaty; it bonds people.

    2:53 Harvey is Sammy's #1 fan. Harvey works for Buddy Guy. Sammy wants to come and play some music with Buddy.

    2:54 What's the tequila recipe? No recipe, it's the way that the tequila ages. Sometimes it's aged for more than 3 years. Sammy has some that is 8 years old and drinks it straight from the barrel.

    2:57 Sammy is going to a town called Tequila tomorrow. Yes, there is a town named Tequila. 3:00 Sammy accidentally messed up the size of his club because he was using American measurements. It's about 3x bigger than it's supposed to be, 3,000 square feet. It took 5 years to build.

    3:02 When Sammy performs in Cabo, they just give wristbands the morning of the show. Some sleep on the sidewalk to get their wristbands. Some did it for 2 weeks. That will kill you.

    3:05 Does Sammy keep in touch with the members of Van Halen? Sammy talks to Michael Anthony almost every day. The end of Van Halen ended pretty ugly. Steve went to school with David Roth and beat him up everyday, if that makes Sammy feel a bit better.

    3:06 Michael Anthony and Sammy will play as "The Other Half." Sammy doesn't like to play Van Halen usually, but with Michael, it's different. He's going to do a nice 3-hour show. Chicago will probably be in the first week of the tour.

    3:08 Sammy and NYC don't get along anymore. He can't even wear what he usually wears there.

    3:09 Jim Peterik was down in Cabo last year. Sammy wrote a song with Jim. Sammy has some buddies in Chicago. Steve advises Sammy to stop by in the summer, just as a little warning.

    3:10 Sammy was on Oprah last year. He had to get up at 6 in the morning. His wife was really excited. Oprah made Sammy stand up during the show and talked about his tequila. Oprah said she loved to drink tequila. It was a good 10 minutes. They cut that whole part of the show off. Sammy has a nice picture of Oprah and him on his mantel.

    3:20 Song: Wanted Dead or Alive, T.N.T.

    3:30 Steve did some high-fiving when Sammy Hagar was here. Steve had to get better at it during the World Series. Tom Thayer actually showed Steve how to high-five. When Mike Dahl high-fives you, it usually hurts for a week.Wendy was a little concerned when she saw Sammy Hagar's hand up for a high-five. Luckily, Steve didn't mess it up.

    3:32 Sammy's bodyguards wouldn't let Jimmy Mac get through to take a picture. He gave the guards a look like, "I'm Jimmy Mac." It didn't work.

    3:34 There was a fan that was trying to get all over Sammy. He wanted to make out or something. He's about 293 lbs.

    Three hour shows. Damn.

    I hope Mikey's on the new album. That'll be a new one....Mad Anthony on something other than a Halen LP. Sweet.

    "...if Ed wants to call he would gladly talk to him."

    It all hinges on that.

    Eddie will have to call Sammy. Or Alex will have to call.

    I guess when they are ready to DO IT AGAIN

    When the 2 dorks asked what eddie was up to Eddie said "gimme a break, we just got off tour last year"

    So, maybe a year or so?

    It's pretty funny, Sammy sounds so happy about playing with the Wabos and Mikey and doing his cantinas and tequila. There's absolutely only one reason I can think of that he would want all the aggravation that goes along with VH--money. Seriously, somebody give me one other reason why he would want to give up what he's doing now and get back with Ed. Then of course, everyone bitches about VH being a "cash grab."

    For me, I don't care if money is the thing that brings them together. I wouldn't care if they have fistfights backstage, give me 2 1/2 hours on stage of your best, and I'd be satisfied, regardless of what your motivation may be.

    Money--It's the only chance we have.

    Well...there's always that longshot chance that Ed will pull his head outta his butt and realize he's been a prick for the last ten years, and maybe he'll make nice with either one of the lead singers and make some new tunes for a long suffering fan base.

    Sorry but Sammy lost me as a fan earlier this year ... He has so much shit going on these days and taking up the vocal spot in VH and not committing 100% to it just plain ruins it for me ....

    Ed may or may not have problems, but all that matters is the VH BAND, not the individuals. I know where scapping for news and any tit bit is gobbled up fast ....

    Who knows what the hell I am trying to say here, I just want my god damn Van Halen to be relevant again .... Motley have done it for us all again (a bloody well as well), now we just need full on dedication to the once mightly VH ... C'mon guys get back to what got you all where you are today ... Give us a KILLER VH record, just one last time!

    Frustration has set in
