    Ive been getting a lot of flack from the Samsters about some of my Hagar comments. Its time for me to truthfully acknowledge Van Hagar's achievements and cut the crap. Van Hagar was a great Pop band, four successive number one albums and some excellent pop tunes. I think they had massive shoes to fill, and although straying away from the original Rockin formula, produced the goods and made a viable band. At one stage they almost achieved half as good sales figures as Van Halen, and thats nothing to be dissapointed about.

    I am the first to admit Van Hagar was a totally different band to Van Halen, and that the new music they created would attract a different type of fan. For those fans, you should be proud of what they achieved, Original Van Halen was massively successful and Sammy came very close to achieving half the sales with the Band.

    I will always favor the original band, (and think that Sam is a bit of a dick) but you cant deny that these guys were half successful !

    Two different bands, both successful in their own way.

    Peace to the Samsters
