    Default Sammy Hagar - A B-List Rock Star Shows How It's Done

    Poor Sammy Hagar. Reportedly snubbed by the multi-million dollar Van Halen reunion which may or may not be happening this fall... Forced to open for a wig-wearing, pre-Howard Stern replacement David Lee Roth on a shed tour a few years back. Multiple-count fashion victim in a countless number of lip-synched 80's hard rock videos.

    “Hey, I'm a great singer. I'm a great guitar player. I'm a great songwriter. I'm a great performer," Hager understated to Business Week.

    First of all...... Great guitar player?? Great SONGWRITER???? Why don't you add "great stand up comedian" to that one, Sammy?

    Second, Given the absolute sheepishness of this article, you would think they could at least spell his name right.

    Yes FORD, Sammy IS indeed a great singer, great guitar player, and a great songwriter. Can't say the same for David Lee Roth, that's for damn sure.

    Just curious FORD, since you're obviously such a big Sammy hater, then why don't you just stay the hell out of The Red Rocker forum? There is a Diamond Dave forum you know.

    You're out of bounds on this one FORD. Whether you share the opinion or not (obviously not), Sammy for all practical purposes is a great singer, guitar player, and songwriter. He is not a good comedian (see: "Up For Breakfast" lyrics).

    Did you hear about Florida State Representative Bob Allen, who was busted for offering an undercover cop a blow job and $20? Turns out he authored and supported a lot of legislation relating to lewd sexual behavior in public, and he was a staunch homo-phobe. Can you say over-compensation?

    Why my Allen bit? If you keep visiting the RR forum and handing out such harsh and bold opinions about Sam, you're going to end up exposing the real truth behind it all: that you are actually a FAN! (Or... that you're gay.) One way or the other, cut it out.

    "Up For Breakfast" was proof of his (lack of) songwriting credentials, not his abilities as a comdeian. As was "Big Fat Money", "Wham Bam Amsterdam", "Spanked", "Cruisin and Boozin", "Trans Am", all the cheese ballads, and the immortal horrible line of all time "Only time will tell if we stand the test of time".

    You want to call me a Hagar fan? I used to be one. But that was when I was much younger. The ridiculous lyrics are half of what drove me away. The ridiculous David Lee Roth bashing from a man who was never harmed in any way, and in fact significantly helped by Roth, was (to coin a phrase) "the other half".

    And that's a good enough opinion for you to have to not be a fan of Hagar. I feel like I have to look beyond his occasional ridiculousness sometimes as well. However, you get "trolling tendencies" when you throw down a post that's worded as though it is fact. That shit gets real old, real fast. So maybe stay out of the RR room since you know you're not likely to read things you'll like, eh?

    Careful how you talk to FORD, he's a legend in the VH internet community.
