    Default New Sammy Interview at Classic Rock Revisited

    There's a new interview with Sammy at classicrockrevisited.com. Not too much new to say although he did go into some detail about a fight he and Ed got into on a plane during the 2004 tour. All in all, a pretty interesting read...

    I really wish Sammy wouldn't have called it a "Van Hagar" reunion in 2004.
    Its Van Halen, not Van Hagar.

    Other than that its fine, time will tell if Eddie is "normal" again.

    I found Sam's answer to the pointed question of "did Mike get f@#ked?" to be utterly fascinating. I don't know that I would 100% endorse his wordings, but he covers a lot of the same ground that we've pounded around here for over a year now. Some of it is damn sig-worthy.

    Thanks for the post, fellas.

    I just read the interview - I liked it - and became even more disappointed with Eddie and Alex.

    Sammy is a straight shooter. how refreshing he is. reading that it just makes it more sickening what happened to Mike and what an asshole you know who has become.

    There is no doubt that Mike has received the rough end of the pineapple, and I think and hope that Mike is having a fat time with his cars and playing with Sammy.

    BUT......something always rubs me up the wrong way when Sammy talks about "Mikey". To me, Sammy always sounds patronising, like poor old Mikey would be helpless with out him..."thats why I'm DRAGGING Mikey around on tour". To me it always sounds like Sammy is saying that Mike has been screwed over, but its ok because I'll look after him, he'll be ok under my wing.

    It never sounds like Mike can stand on his own two feet, which I am sure he can. Sammy always makes it sound like Mike is indebted or indentured to him, not an equal.

    First off, it is illegal for someone that drunk to be flying on an airplane.

    That being said, Sammy needs to STFU about VH and move on.

    Sounds like Chickenfoot will stick as a group name. Cool!

    I am not only basing what I said on this interview, but on everything I have read from Sammy over the last probably 3 years.

    I just cringe a little whenever Sammy talks about "Mikey".

    we dont like people talking the words we dont want to hear do we.

    Why the fuck should Sam shut the fuck up when he asked a straight up question, to which he gives a straight up answer to. Its only because those who worhsip EVH cant handle the truth, and are not used to getting a straight up answer, let alone any answer at all from VH INC. You want bullshit company man response, listen to Ed and Al, you'll get it in spades, and also a somewhat 'hazy' recount of the facts.

    People rag on the Sam for speaking up when he is asked the question about a band he fronted for a decade, and has the honesty to speak about (and only irritates those who dont agree with what he says and those who cant accept that EVH destroyed that band) the reason for what transpired.

    Oh you havent heard the one about EVH in the plane during the 2004 tour? Well its not a sane, logical person who exhibits that behaviour is it? But no, it was Sam's and lets put Mike in there too (because he went behind the brother's back and ceased to sit on his ass for another 5 years and play with Sam didnt he?) fault for the whole thing to collapse wasnt it?

    It kills me that some hate Sammy for speaking about the band, the reasons for and all up, why VH are not a functional source of productivity anymore.

    But we worship EVH for either not talking at all to fans, no new material, or only to emerge with ANOTHER 'indepth exculsive interview' about ANOTHER striped patent adorned product he is pimping again.

    And some think Sam is patronising Mike? Give me a fuckin break. Ask mIke that question and ill know what answer you get. You want patronising, google EVH and AVH for images and there is patronising personified, cause thats how they have treated Mike for decades, not to mention us, the fans.

    Yeah, I know who I respect and listen too friends.

    That was a great interview! It talked about a lot of things in Sammy's past I haven't heard him talk about much, and that fight on the plane I never knew about with Eddie.
    Right Now you're reading my post!

    Why does Sam need to STFU he got asked the question and answered it, if you got screwed by your ex wife and were bitter, I am sure you would feel the same way. EVH is a legend and one of the best of our times, but VH has not treated their fans or band mates very well over the years.....That being said why should he shut up, he is not part of their camp anymore and is entitled to his say when asked !

    I seem to remember reading somewhere that Sammy said he and Mike traveled on a separate plane from Ed ad Al. Does anyone else remember hearing that?
