    Default More Quotes From Sammy at Hall of Fame

    Sammy Hagar on why he did not sing a Van Halen song with Velvet Revolver at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony.

    "Well I didn't sing with Velvet Revolver and I really wanted to but the politics kept that from happening. That was the original plan and that's where Dave bowed out, you know, if you want to know kind of what happened. He wanted to do this and they didn't want to do this and they pulled out at one point. And then when Dave pulled out they came back in. So it was too late, so we had already rehearsed with Paul Schaffer's band."


    Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony were asked if they thought Dave would show up.

    SH: "Honestly yeah."

    MA: "I was waiting for him to come busting through at some point during the speech, you know. That's Dave."

    Well, VR should've just shut their trap, did whatever song Dave wanted to do and left it at that.

    Its not like their version of "Jump" was gonna be any better than what they did with ATBL or whatever that "Round, Round" song was afterwards.

    Seems like from Sam's comments, its almost like the Hall didn't have "room" for Dave at some point.

    VR wanted to do their own thing -- didn't want to do what Dave wanted and Sam and Mike already had something lined up with trailer-hitch ball-head Shaffer.

    So there you go.

    Dave became the odd man out.

    Not so much limited as obviously incredibly arrogant and self-centered. If it had been me, I would have moved Heaven and Earth to get Dave, Sam, and Mike up doing tunes.

    I'm beginning to wonder whether they knew they were even Inducting anyone.

    When Sammy said that VH should tour with Dave, did he mean with Michael Anthony also?
    I can't remember which comedian said it, about the current state of Van Halen, but he said right now, Van Halen is like a really hot playboy playmate with a prosthetic leg.

    BRING BACK THE CLASSIC LINEUP!

    This just continues to piss me off... and as a fan of STP, GnR & VR (and, of course, VH), this whole Weiland prima donna crap stinks like fried donkey nuts...

    ...round, round, around, indeed...

    ...and everyone was ready to jump (no pun intended) down Dave's throat on this one...

    i'm sure he would imply that, but i think he's hoping that ed gets better and becomes easier to deal with again (at least by sam's account)... with clear heads maybe something like that can work itself out again... and maybe not... at the very least, the fans want dave & ed for a tour again...

    VR should have done whatever it took to get Dave up there! I am getting so sick and tired of all this VH drama. I love Mike and Sam but am getting tired seeing them be the only ones represent a band they are no longer in! I wondered for years what the VH induction into the hall would be like and it happened just like every other VH event. Dave should have been there and VR should be ashamed at that awful performance.

    Sam can be a dick, but I don't see him standing in the way of Mike playing on a Van HALEN tour, if Mike wanted to do so and Eddie wasn't being an ass about it.

    It's not like the Velveetareetas are touring this year anyway, right?

    Welcome back, Van HALEN!!!!
