    Default New Sammy Interview

    Uncorked: Sammy Hagar
    Tuesday, 22 July 2008

    Not everyone knows that you’re really into wine. But we understand that
    you have quite a collection. How many bottles are in your cellar?

    I have 10,000 bottles. And all of them are good wines, nothing cheap.

    What are some of your favorite wines?

    A: After my sweet phase I moved into Bordeaux. I also love Italian wines -
    Barolos and Chianti. But my favorite is probably La Tache, from Domaine de
    la Romanee-Conti. I’m also into Vega Sicilia.

    Those may be your favorites, but what are you drinking most right now?

    A: I like Penfolds Grange Hermitage. But they need the age, at least 1990s
    and back. They’re hard to come by, though. I do like a good Sauvignon
    Blanc over a Chardonnay. I’m particularly fond of Cloudy Bay from New
    Zealand. It’s like fresh cut grass. I prefer Chablis over a Montrachet.
    It’s the same grape, but they don’t wood them.

    If you could share one bottle of wine with David Lee Roth, what would
    it be?

    Cold Duck. I don’t think he would appreciate fine wine. We don’t get
    along with each other. It has nothing to do with Van Halen. I just don’t
    like the way he dresses or the way he acts.


    This is just part of the interview.

    Funny...'cause I don't like the way Sam dresses or acts either. Who cares! Dave goes for the matador look and Sam goes for the Buffet look. I'm not sure Sam's style is any better. In all fairness, the interviewer was looking for funny comments.
    What are your major influences?

    To Sammy, that is about one of the stupidest things I've heard come out of your mouth in quite some times. Take the high road, get over the bitterness. Carrying that around with you is a waste of time. A simple "I don't think we will be getting together anytime soon" would suffice. Comments like this just make you look bad.
    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.

    Allow me to be the first, so the point can be made and this thread can devolve into the usual rancorous debate as to the merits of Sam versus Dave:

    "Sammy needs to STFU!"

    There. Since we've got that out of the way, we can now proceed.

    I agree but my god "Sam goes for the Buffet look" is freakin hysterical because he does! God love Sammy.


    I'd love it if all the guys would take the high road and just shut the hell up about each other. If you can't say anything good, don't say anything at all...you know, "do unto others"...............

    A better question would have been:

    "If you could share one bottle of wine with Eddie Van Halen, what would it be?"

    Another thing.....Why would Sam say something so negative about Dave if he wasn't jealous? Usually when people say crap like that, it comes from jealousy. Dave is Dave and makes no apologies for being who he is. I respect that. Dave looks great for his age, is the best frontman to ever hit the stage PERIOD......Yep, Sam's bitter.

    Mike and Gary would have said something different. This is why I don't put Sammy on a pedastal like others. The guy while nowhere as vindictive as EVH is nowhere near a saint either.

    However he did tour with the guy and if feelings are solely based on that, then he has a right to say what he feels.

    That being said, I just wish everybody who has been in VH would just say "next question" when something like this comes up.

    Which is stupid if he does in fact feel that way. The guy has more than most of us could ever hope for and yet you have to wonder what is behind comments like these. I have no problem when Sam talks about his past experiences with VH or Eddie, they are what they are and someone usually asks. But in the context of this interview, it comes across as being totally petty. Yes, someone asked the question but it's like an ex lover who takes every opportunity to slam their ex. Sometimes the less said, the better.
    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    What's good for the goose is good for the gander, girls.

    Besides, those comments were hardly potent slagging. Dave's said much worse.

    And if it was out of context for the interview, I would be saying the same thing about Dave. I'm equal in my distaste for unnecessary slagging.
