    He's right, and we know the story goes like that more or less. But if Sam's gonna use language like "cut his throat," this slugfest in the media isn't going to stop. I wish he'd call Eddie and be friends--make the peace, at least casually. Then all this shit would stop.

    yeah when I saw this in the other thread the "slit his throat" comment got a big from me....but then again that's exactly the kind of melodrama we've become acustomed to...both from the people in the VH universe as well as the people who get all twisted up watching it play out.
    Stay out of it, dude.

    Hey media, I know it's difficult but stop asking CF about VH.

    Sammy, just say, 'No comment'.

    I'm already tired of this shit. I just want to enjoy the new CF album and tour.

    Hell yeah, he's going to comment on it. He just released an album and probably figures if the media/public still give a shit about an age old controversy after all these years AND I can get a dig in on VH, why not? A few extra album sales maybe.

    I don't have a problem with them talking about it publicly. Why not? I think being extremely introverted and having that covert operation, keep it in the family BS, is just the kind of mentality that doomed VH anyway. Hell, if they can't pick up the phone and have it out, get on the record saying what you think.

    And I don't buy that people aren't interested in it. It is interesting. It's fascinating to me actually. I mean it's a greek tragedy played out in the rock and roll world involving one of my favorite bands of all time. I'm totally intrigued about it, and perhaps I'm in the minority here, but I hope they keep talking about it. Every time they say even a little bit, it's a slight glimpse into what went into the madness.

    Come on Ed. Your turn. Let's roll this thing!

    I agree. and whoever wrote that article is an idiot. It implied sammy left in 05 because they were gonna release a greatest hits record.
    And when you find out you're out of a band after 30 years on CNN, yes your throat was slit.

    It's not like he called him "Sauce Sobelewski" or anything like that.

    point taken.

    Ed's got a commanding lead in the "a-hole contest" but never sell Sammy short. He's more than capable of closing the gap.

    This cback and forth shit throwing reminds me of a certain former lead singer and his former bandmates a little over 20 years ago....can't remember the band though.

    Really no big deal, but Sammy does contribute to the "Mike is a Victim" mantra we've been hearing.

    Mike is no victim--nobody "cut his throat" and left him by the road....For crying out loud.

    I'm no big Sammy fan, but acknowledge that he's just trying to defend his friend...And that's admirable. It's counter productive though---there is no need for it.

    This is a little interesting because, according to Hagar:

    ********************************************

    Hagar said he left the group as singer after a dispute over a greatest hits record. Hagar preferred doing a brand new studio album or taking a break.

    "And then ever since then Mikey and I were great friends," he said. "He'd come to Cabo because they (Van Halen) were doing nothing. He was sitting around for three or four years, so finally he goes, 'Shoot, I'll come out with you.' So I said, 'Okay, well I've got a bass player but you can come out and just join me for the Van Halen songs, I did four or five.

    *******************************************

    I don't usually post in this forum and I'm sure I'll get hammered for this, but this is how I read it: Mike and Sammy became "great friends" after the "dispute" that caused Sammy to leave VH. Then, Mike hung out in Cabo and then Mike asked Sammy to tour with him, despite the fact that Sammy already had a bassist. Frankly, it sounds like Eddie's interpretation of the events is reasonably accurate and I understand why he thought Mike left the band to hang with Sammy.

    very true Andrew, though you can't help but feel that both Sammy and Mike are the ones who deserve the phone call if there is to be one. remember, Sammy did that in 04', he was the one who reached out to Alex and then Eddie. look where that got him. and then the whole RRHOF debacle, Sammy and Mike were very supportive even then. bottom line, i don't see anything wrong with both Sammy and Mike telling the truth. they are both resentful and have every right to be. especially when EVH puts his bullshit spin on things like he just did. the day EVH acts like a man and makes an effort to set things right, i bet you both those guys would welcome and embrace it. none of us would take being lied about publicly well and they are no different. Sammy and Mike are a couple of class acts and in my opinion have actually handled all of this a lot better than many of us would have.

    I think he's talking about ten years apart here. The breakup in the mid-90's and then Mikey going on the road with him in '02 or '06.
