    It's on right now.

    Wow. Though he kinda hemmed and hawed for a few seconds, there some very insightful comments from Mike about the state of Van Halen.

    Basically, "Fuck you, Ed and Al. I'm tired of sitting on my ass."

    Good for you, Mike.

Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."

    Very good.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    Mike said "it could be over, but never say never". Basically he said they hoped the reunion would last longer than it did in 2004, but Ed and Al went home and him and Sammy still wanted to go out and play.

    Sammy said "Don't mistake this for a Van Halen show, because it's not." He talked about Van Halen's huge legacy, and that they weren't going to go out and embarass the VH legacy because they were planning on tearing up these new songs with respect to that legacy. Nobody on the show so far has ripped on anyone...so far.

    I just tuned in, and they said they were going to play a clip from a new song off the new album, called "half way" and they ended up playing it, and it was half way to memphis, only a little twangy-er. What's up with that?

    Yeah, that disappointed me greatly.

    The only new songs they played clips of were "One Sip" and "Mexico". They played "Let Me Take You There" in its entirity, as well as "One Way To Rock" and "Serious JuJu". I logged on about 15 minutes into the show, and haven't heard "Halfway To Memphis" yet.

    They played the song "Half Way" going into a break, which has some of the same lyrics and music as "Half Way To Memphis". They changed a couple of lyrics up, but in essence it was the same song.

    They also played pieces of "I Love This Bar" (I like how he altered the lyrics to not sound just like the Toby Keith song) and the Bob Dylan "Rainy Day Women (Everybody Must Get Stoned)" cover heading into commercial breaks.

    Mexico sounded like it might have some potential. However there are at least 3 cover songs on the CD (I Love this Bar, Rainy Day Women & Let Me Take You There) and one song that is a rework of a previous Sammy Hagar song. So that's a little disappointing.

    I only managed to tune into a few minutes, right around they were taking phone calls. A guy asked Sammy about the state of his tequila business and he went on to describe (as we've heard before) that he had not really intended to get into the bar and tequila businesses but rather that the original concept for Cabo Wabo was for him to have a place to hangout and jam whilst down in Mexico. Since he's always been a tequila fan he decided to get his own brand going for the cantina and then it just kind of took off from there.

    He later went on to add that the success that Cabo Wabo tequila has brought him allows him to "self-sponsor" his solo shows. As opposed to having a big corporate sponsor like many other big tours would have, he's been able to more or less finance his tours through the tequila business. That in turn allows him to offer tickets at cheap prices, much less than what you'd have to pay for a 'normal' concert.

    I also caught a story about Sammy's maid in CSL. Apparently she makes up fantastic fresh salsa for Sammy & family every day to flavour their meals etc... the other day he caught the maid marinating some chicken with (you guessed it..) MAD ANTHONY'S HOT SAUCE!!!! Not sure if it was just a plug for Mikey or a genuine story but either way, the way he told it was really hilarious.

    Wasn't able to catch any comments regarding VH....

    There really wasn't many. So now all the people who were upset about Sammy talking a whole lot about Van Halen will probably be upset that he didn't mention them that much at all.

    Sounds like it was pretty interesting.

    No surprise on Mike's comment on the status of VH. We come to expect it now.
