    Default Latest VH/Hagar Rumors...

    Picked up at another list. So, don't shoot the messenger:

    - Sammy is floating in money from the Cabo Wabo sale.
    He's really thrilled at how it has all worked out, and
    now he has total financial freedom to do whatever he
    wants in terms of touring, opening new Cantinas, etc.

    - He knows that his Fall tour is going to take a hit
    from VH fans who will be sapped of "disposable income"
    because of the reunion tour, but he really doesn't
    care. Even if the tour plays to half-houses, it will
    just be written off as promotional expenses for the
    new Cantinas, which are gonna get pushed hard.

    - He has had no contact with Eddie since the 2004
    tour. He has had some conversations with Alex, but
    that relationship is strained because Hagar feels Alex
    let Eddie screw Mike.

    - He's really angry that they didn't invite Mike to do
    the reunion shows, probably more than Mike himself is!

    - He said Matt Sencio (wasn't he an MTV host?) told
    him that Dave didn't come to the Hall Of Fame because
    it was made clear to him that if he got on stage with
    Sammy and Mike to accept the award, there would never
    be a reunion tour.

    - He's really pushing the idea of breaking up his
    shows into different sets with multiple intermissions.
    His plan for the Fall is to do an opening set with
    Mike and Lauser as Los Tres Gusanos, then Mike will do
    a set with Lauser and Vic Johnson doing classic Rock
    and VH stuff, then a third Wabos set with Vic, Lauser
    and Mona, then an encore with Mike as the "Other
    Half".

    - Hagar has floated the idea of flying in special
    guests to join the tour for a few shows, with Chad
    Smith, Matt Sorum, Lars & Kirk of Metallica, Neal
    Schon and Ronnie Montrose being the names floated
    around.

    - Sammy (and Mike, and anyone else with half a brain)
    is really worried what might happen to Wolfgang if the
    shows aren't good. The feeling is, if Eddie starts
    playing sloppy, fans are going to blame Wolfgang
    instead of him, and a fan who feels ripped off
    throwing shit at a 16 year old kid would be a pretty
    fucked up situation.
    "Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that."

    "This is a lttle prayer dedicated to the separation of church and state. I guess if they are going to force those kids to pray in schools they might as well have a nice prayer like this: Our Father who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation indivisible as in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail. Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."

    "I think it's the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is drawn and cross it deliberately."

    -George Carlin 1937 - 2008

    Sounds pretty freaking plausible to me. I agree if the shows tank, Ed won't be blamed. He should have been blamed for the 2004 shows but got off the hook until it became really apparent he was the problem. Pretty shitty thing to do to your kid too. I absolutely believe that thing about the HOF presentation is true. Why Dave refuses to stand up to Ed is beyond me, but whatever, old news.

    Sencio is Dave's manager.

    after reading the rest...Sam should shut the fuck up and worry about his own tour.

    Seemed to me he was talking about his tour (80% of that post was about HIS plans), and his comments about a band he was in longer than Dave, is EVERY bit as relevant as Dave bitching about it for 23 years.

    It doesn't take a genius to figure out Mike was screwed, and has been for years.

    Matt Sencio is Dave's personal manager. This tour must be one hell of a pay-day, considering how badly Roth wanted to be present at the RRHOF.

    The tour is selling out all over, but DLR STILL didn't get a real reunion.

    Wrong: The FANS aren't getting a real reunion.

    Rumor or not, most of the original thread post is very believable.

    That makes sense. Dave seems pretty level-headed right now. There had to be a big penalty for him to miss accepting the RRHOF award. Now it makes more sense to me. I can't blame him. One last Classic Van Halen tour would be worth missing picking up a fucking trophy. Dave said fuck it, let the Other Half pick that mother fucking trophy up... I'm picking up a big fat final paycheck!

    as a long standing member of the band, there should be no issue with Sam commenting on the current state of affairs...he's a huge part of their history and it prolly sucks for him to see things go off the rails in recent years...i don't think he's too worried about his own tour either by the by...or any of his business interests...look at the facts...he's the one guy that's done it right. And he's got a mountain of cash.
    ...and in the end, on dreams we will depend...

    At this point, I really don't give a shit anymore. I want a good show, no a great show, that's it. I paid a lot of money for my tickets. I want a top notch show. Beyond that, if they release new material and it's good, then great, I'll buy it and go to that tour IF it's worth going. I really don't give a shit about all the other stuff. I'm done with it. Good for Mike that he's out of that situation. If Dave wants to suck Eddie's ass, that's his business. Besides, with this band you just never know what is the truth and what is bullshit, and we never will because they are not very willing to tell their fans anything. The truth is, they just don't give a fuck.

    Sencio is one hell of a manager, telling SAMMY HAGAR of all people Dave's reasons for not attending the RRHOF ceremonies - there's one way to lose a gig. I'm not buying that part. Dave talked so much shit about Velvet Revolver. I still think it was more about Dave being Dave regarding the performance.

    Anyways, I've always noticed whenever the bros or Roth open their mouths about anything they get killed, but whenever Sam shoots his mouth off, "it must be legit." Sam always gets a free pass. To me, Mike is the only one who has always pretty much taken the high road. As for the rest of them, THEY SHOULD ALL SHUT THE FUCK UP AND JUST PLAY MUSIC.

    And no, this doesn't mean I have the brothers' back on every or even most of their bad decisions. Just sick of all this type shit I guess.

    If the fans are entitled to express their opinions, why can't Sammy or any of the guys? Whether you agree is a different matter.

    Sam isn't worried about his tour or place in life. He is not the one who has screwed people over left and right. He show's up everynight, plays and has fun - everyone from the fans, band and friends have fun around him and isn't misable.

    Unlike others we know.

    most of it makes sense.

    I still don't buy that Wolfie will be blamed if the shows are bad. The blame will be on the Ed and Dave. Just like no one ever blamed a bad show on Mike no one will blame a bad show on Wolfie. In fact I can't ever remember anyone talking about any show and saying the bass player was to blame.
